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.
Help! Barking service dog constantly.
Hi everyone, my neighbor has a dog that barks incessantly and particularly when he is left Lone. When I notified the neighbor that the dog was barking non-stop, he informed me that he was a service dog in training because he has seizures. Of course, I said no problem but I would appreciate that they get this under control. Dogs bark, I understand that but they are not supposed to bark non-stop. This week-end the dog was left alone all week-end so it cried, howled and bark until 2AM. At some point, I got worried and had maintenance call the apartment because I feared something had happened, turns out, they just left the dog alone. I am asking this forum because I am uninformed about the subject. Is this normal behavior for a service dog? Is it supposed to be left alone for long periods of time? How should I address this issue respectfully? I need desperately to sleep and work during the day (I work home). Any resources I could read or give to my neighbor would be appreciated. Thank you
