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.


How to help overcome a service dogs tragic death.

Hi my friend has a mini Australian shepherd whose been her service and therapy dog to help her with her depression and loneliness, and my friend was getting a lot better. However last night her dog Neala was struck by an oncoming car after she got off the leash, and being a puppy just wanted to run. She died soon after and it was a very horrifying scene. I'm wondering what I can do to help her or what the next course of action should be for someone who really needs a service dog and what to do after an accident like this. Please anything can help, im concerned my friend could have her suicidal thoughts come back.
