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.


My one year old mix just quits during walks! He enjoys it but...

Now he doesn't get enough exercise because now I only take him out when I know I have unlimited time or I know my boyfriend is a call away and can come rescue me. He is a year old mix (we think border collie/golden retriever). He is over 50 pounds now so I can't just pick him up and walk a half mile back to the house like I used to. He loves the walk but almost always chooses to just sit or lay down on the ground and refuse to come - not matter how much begging and pleading I do. And he doesn't care about treats when he is refusing to walk/come in. I love him and I know exercise is important for his health. I am active myself and want to take him out a lot more. Please help!
