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.
House broken and not very noisy?
We're retired and planning for a new addition to our family and also planning on spending a fair amount of time in an RV. We are drawn, after much research, to various members of the Bichon family and Miniature Poodles. Which members of the Bichon family are the easiest to "potty train?" We've been told, from several sources, that Havanese, among the Bichons, don't bark all that much other than "someone is here." Dogs that bark a lot are a problem for RVer's. We've learned the Mini-poodles are given to a fair amount of barking but are pretty easy to house break. We, of course, are working hard to find as close to a perfect match to our life style as possible.
