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.


Dog Panties. Anyone know how I can make them

Vivace just came into season and to keep her from messing on the carpet and couch I have been using boys underpants with a pad. They are working okay but don't really fit that great. We keep having to pull them up all the time. Does anyone know how I can make these. I can do basic sewing and really want to make them myself so I can choose the material. All the nice ones I have found online have silly bows and I don't like them. We just got her and she came into season just days later. We may or may not breed her. It just depends on if she titles, passes health clearances and is 2 years old. If not she will be spayed. And we are not letting her out of our sight outside right now. She is on lead at all times.

    Leaving the breeding to professionals is a wise idea. Breeding a dog that you have no papers no health guarantee or history, is irresponsible. I don't know how to make pantees for your dog. I do know that breeding is best left to the people who know what they are doing. The pad and boys pantees should suffice for this heat. Think of all the tread and puppies you'll save if you have her spayed.

    Best way to make them is to give in and buy 1 pair. That way you have a pattern. Just copy it. After you try making a pair, you'll probably realize it's more work than it's worth and go back to buying them. I have seen a couple companies that sell covers for them. They remind me of the covers you can get for cloth baby diapers. They also sell them at dog shows in varieties I haven't seen online, so maybe hold out until her next cycle so you have more time to shop around.

    Just want to make contact as my kennel name is Vivace. You can follow the coming along of Brooklands Beau of Vivace on Twitter at vivacegsp. Have a look at Vivace Androclushere: And more dog pix on my face book page I live and shoot and trial in South Africa and am a 60 yo grampa, in case you (being a yanqui)think I may be a perv! Cory Voigt Oh yes, why breed your girl. Is she sopecial. Also, don't allow her on furniture. Besides the mess, thsi sets up dominance/hierarchy problems
