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.



What should I do if I'm thinking about adopting a beagle?

    Just be patient, Beagles are very smart. They are natural hunters more than the “average” dog so if they bring you a “gift” don’t freak out “. If you want a quiet dog beagles aren’t the best route. Beagles howl a lot regardless of you train. Yes training helps but that is their true nature. Also they are truely a one person dog and socialization is the best way to go to avoid aggression at vet visits, going to the pet store, park etc.

    This breed is my favorite. Beagles are loyal and very smart. They are wonderful family members.
