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, www.dogster.com 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.
New Puppy- how to stop biting when excited?
We've had our 11 week old Akita for a week now and already can't imagine life without him! In about a week from now, we will be bringing him with us to visit family with small children. He loves kids (his breeder had kids around the puppies constantly) and is being well socialized. We are working hard to get him to stop biting when he's excited and playing but we're not having a lot of luck yet. Perhaps I am expecting results too fast? Just wondering if anyone has any tips. Thanks for any advice!
