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.
Aggression towards his littermate
I bought 2 mini aussies from the same litter from which I later realized was a puppy mill. I have had health issues with the female as a puppy but they are both now healthy. When Radar(male) is excited, when they are either losoe in the fenced in backyard or in their 12' x 12' dog run, he becomes aggressive and will attack his sister. I seperate them as quickly as possible and they have never drawn blood but this is becoming more and more of a problem. I took them to training classes when they were about 6 months old and the training club used spiked training collars. and I now have 2 leash aggressive dogs towards other dogs. I walk them and he has improved. Guess the issue that I cannot deal with anymore is his aggression towards his sister and heis a fence runner/fighter. The minute he hers anyone when outside he goes wild barking and jumping at the fence.
