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.

    I don't know much about Borders except they are a herding dog with lots of energy. We have a breed specific forum if you want to ask a border owner. I prefer females in some breeds and in some males. Males are cheaper to neuter then a female is to spay. You might want to consider the price of that other then that I don't know what else specifically to say. I guess it is a matter of choice. I think some females are smarter then males. I don't know it is up to you.

    This is a topic that is still widely debated by breeders and owners alike, but the common experience seems to be that males of most (if not all) breeds tend to be more people-dogs and want to be with you 24/7, while females tend to be more independent. This certainly isn't the case with every dog, but more often than not it is what you will find.
