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 now tie my dog up near me when I'm hanging out the washing. However, that day was the only time that he has wandered away from where he was laying and it was about 15 yards away, under the tree on a really hot day. When he barks at people going past our door, they can't see him and vice versa and the door is shut. He now doesn't bark at the other dog as much as he did. I'm having a security door installed next week with one way mesh. My dog will be able to look out but he still will not be able to be seen. I'm hoping this will improve things even more.
