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.

Cheers,
Dogster

What can we do if our dog only walks with me, but not my boyfriend? Can someone help?

We got a sweet, 4 year old Perro de Agua Espanol (Spanish waterdog) last week. She has been very shy from the beginning, but every day she opens up more, especially on the walks. The problem is: she won't walk if my boyfriend goes out alone with her. She just lays down and looks back. He has tried with sausages, waiting for 15 minutes and recently we have started to go together and then I let myself fall behind. That works for a couple of meters until Duna stops and waits for me. Do you have any experience in this situation or some creative ideas for us what to do? She doesn't seem affraid of him, because in the house she cuddles with him and he is trying really hard to improve her trust in him, but it doesn't seem to work yet. Unfortunatly we don't know much about her situation before, just that she lived with an older lady.
