Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


Cold weather potty problems

I have a 9 month old deaf Chihuahua. He's having his first experience with cold weather this week, and he's not doing well with going potty outside. He will go out and pee, but he doesn't always want to poop. He's had several accidents inside the house. He'll even go outside and then poop as soon as we get back in the house. He hasn't been the easiest to potty train and still has accidents anyway, but it's been really bad since it got cold. Does anyone have any tips? We've also had issues with him not letting us know when he needs to go out. Any tips on that too?
