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.


Saint Bernard pup goes crazy on walks

My miss Watson is about 8 months old, she is a great dog, polite, well behaved, very well potty trained...... She is fine on her leash as long as she is taken down the porch stairs in the back of the house, and to the left of the stairs she goes potty, then she wants to go right inside, if you don't take her right in she will sit at the door and wait for you. I try to walk both of my pups once daily, but Watson goes psychotic on walks. We have a corner property she gets about 10 feet from the house and starts going crazy, darting back and forth and then spinning around you, then she starts jumping at you trying to bite you, she gets quite vicious, get to her to the porch and she turns into the perfect pup again... Tried pinch collars, harnesses, muzzles (she lays and refuses to budge), food etc. NOTHING helps. It's just getting worse, the trainers and vet said to put her down... Not an option. She can't walk with Sherlock because she will wound him.
