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.

Cheers,
Dogster

My dog eats very quickly. What can be done to slower the pace?

What can I do to slower the eating pace of my pet. He simply gulps down all the food given to him. I am worried about his health.

    for smaller dogs they make bowls with dividers that force the dog to eat by sections. For a larger dog put a large rock one big enough he can't swallow in his bowl so he has to eat around it

    No Longer Lost BOL

    You can actually get the puzzle bowls for any size dog, I got one for a large boxer cross and it made a huge difference  They're not exactly cheap but well worth the price.
