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.


My Eskie sheds pretty bad.

Does anyone have any advice on lessening this? Aside from brushing her daily, which I do.

    Aside from brushing, not really. I've got two of them, and they both blow their coats during the summer. They are supposed to. It's the undercoat that is being blown. Jack (Bubbles) blows his coat more than Gypsy Road does.

    They blow their coat twice a year. this would be getting ready for their winter coats. Brushing and the furminator Helps!!! We also use coconut oil as a supplement to help reduce shedding. Hope this helps! ps. i vacuum my furniture and my floors twice week.

    I use to shed all the time even though i was brushed 3 times a week untill my daddy realized, he had to use a small wire comb and take 1/8 " partings starting from the back under coat and worked his way all around. My shedding decreased by 80% it's time consuming but really works well. plus, I get a surprise for behaving so well :)
