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.


Do you eat strange things outside?

I was just wondering if any of you have problems with your chi\'s eating all sorts of things when you take them outside? Angie & Sarah spend more time munching on leaves & pebbles, those little whirly things that fall off the trees, & the cut grass after the grass has been cut. Our other chi Bella never picks up anything to munch on even when she was a puppy. Is there any way to stop this behavior? Any advise would be appreciated!

    I think its a natural thing for dogs to do, instinct. My guys all chew on stuff outside, like grass, twigs, rock's, pinecones...well, you get the idea.
