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.
We recently acquired a German Shepherd Labrador mix puppy, who is about 14 weeks old. The lady we got him from said she was feeding Purina Puppy Chow, mixed with Purina Dog Chow. She added to the bowl a little bit of wet food and some hot water. She stated it was because all her dogs ate out of the same bowl once they hit 12 weeks old. We went to the pet store before getting him to get him a proper sized collar, some toys, a crate etc. The pet store manager was telling us we needed to feed a large breed puppy food because what he was eating wasn't good enough. We were not happy with what he was being fed, but wanted to wean him to a new food slowly. I now need advice on a good food. He will be approximately a 80-90 pound dog. So do I need to feed large breed puppy, or will any puppy food do?
