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 have a two year old akit/belgian shepherd mix. How do I stop his digging?

Carter here loves chasing rabbits and cats while outside on a leash. There are wood chips on the side of the trailer for a flower bed and recently the dog has been digging in the wood chips getting the wood chips all over the sidewalk and the porch. The rabbits and cats like to shelter underneath the trailer so I think he may be chasing them or smelling the scent and trying to get to them that way. I don't know how to stop this. Its not an actual hole he is digging he is just moving the wood chips around and flinging them on the sidewalk. My boyfriend has recently left for military purposes could this be act of pissed off behavior because of my boyfriend leaving?
