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.
Hi all, we just signed up today. My kids and I LOVE our AE dog Champ. He was one in March ( so still a pup ), BUT, any advice and nipping and nawing.... i.e., I'll be sitting on the couch, he wants to naw on me like a bone. I shove a bone in his face, pushed him off the couch, put him in time outs, etc. He gets better, but then does the same thing. Not all the time, but at least once a day, usually in the evening before bed. Champ has plenty of bones, toys, etc. He also nips and naws at the kids as well. This is his only REAL BAD habit. I do not want to put one of those shock collars on him. Any suggestions???? Help!! Thanks!:D
