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.
#1 & #2 on walks in the neighborhood
This is more of an etiquette question...Let me know if I should move to another category. I take my dogs for walks and runs in our suburban neighborhood. Always with baggies, of course. A neighbor ranted a bit on our neighborhood FB page that she's sick of dogs going #1 & #2 on her lawn (even if picked up). Some neighbors agreed, some told her to post a sign, since it's a pretty common activity on a walk.
I guess my family always let our dogs go wherever grass was growing (picking up anything that needed it). Did I miss out on some grand etiquette training growing up? Or is the neighbor unrealistic? What do you all think?
