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.


Please read. Bringing service dog in training to school. Does the school have to allow?

I'm planning on bringing my service dog in training to school this Friday and I need to get all my info together. Can the school deny me and my service dog in training if I brought her? Also can the school bus deny her as well? My service dog in training has a vest saying she's a service dog in training. Please help. If you find any info please place the website where you got it from.

    What state do you live in??? Access laws for SDIT are different for many states and access is not automatically allowed, especially in a school. You need to research your state laws and find the regulations specific to your state and follow those, vest or no vest. For example, I live in NH and public access is NOT allowed for Service Dogs in Training. Some other states require you to be accompanied by a trainer, for another example. The ADA federal laws only apply to Service Dogs, not those in training.

    It depends on the laws of your state.
