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.


Will my hyper disobedient beagle be able to calm down and change personalty to become a service anim

I have severe anxiety and my mother bought me a beagle to raise and train as my service dog, but she's really really hyper and doesn't want to listen or obey any commands. For short periods she'll listen for food but then its back to sniffing and pouncing at you and licking and biting. Personally I don't think she'll be trainable and I just want to get rid of her, while my mother on the other hand thinks she can train her with enough time to be the perfect service dog for me. My question is, is this hyper disobedient dog a lost cause or will she be able to change her entire personality ?
