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.


Moving out! What happens to dog?

I'm moving out of home soon and I'm stressing about my pup. He is like my child and I love him dearly, here is the dilemma: I'm going to study about 6 hours away from home,my family has 2 other dogs excluding him. I could potentially bring him with me, but my mom is saying that it is unfair on him. If I take him with,we will be renting on a farm and he will have two other dogs to play with. Plus he is like my child and I chose him out from the Shelter, trained him up,he sleeps in my bed and he is essentially my baby. My mom argues that it would be unfair to him because he would be taken out of his familiarity,and the rest of the family and out other two dogs. Since it is impossible for me to answer this unbiasedly, I was hoping for some answers from you guys!

    II depends if he is more attached to you or the other dogs.   We were a military family and moved often from one place to another.   Our dogs did not care where they were as long as they were with us.  On the other paw if you pup is really bonded with the other dogs in your family then it could be stressful for him to be away from them.  Is he attached to your mom as well.   You just need to decide who in the family he is attached to the most and make sure he remains with that person or dog.
