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.

    We also lik to eat the kitty poop so mommy put the litter pan in a corner and a screen (like a room divider) enclosing the box then a small wooden board "doorway" for the cat to enter. We could pull it down but we don't know it so the kitty litter is safe and so are we. Good luck!!

    I found this off of a show on animal planet. It's called It's Me Or The Dog. I love the show. She had a dog to train that would eat his fecies, she gave him pinapple. Pinapple, when it comes out on the other end, he tries to eat it, it tastes horrible. I hope my advice is helpful! I would also see if you could get him the 6 in 1 shot. It is a shot if he eates fecies, he's protected from deasies. Please do so, if you already have done it, pawsome! Happy Holidays! Any problems, please don'tt hesiate! Kosmo and Ariana

    At Doctors Foster & Smith, they sell a product called "For-Bid" which is a powder you add to the food of the cat, dog, etc. whose feces is being eaten. It causes the feces to taste bad to the dog. I have not tried it myself, but it might work to solve your problem! Here is the link to the product:
