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.

    You need a liscence just to breed dogs? Gee, everything I guess everything needs a lescince these days. Anyway, the reason that I wanted to answer this question. Why do you want to be a breeder? To make lots of money? To help improve the breed you love? The former is one of the wrong reasons. The latter is THE right reason. Before you are ready to become a breeder, you should study for YEARS. About genetics (because each breed has inherited problems that you need to look out for), the right ways to breed, how to be a good owner, among other things. As for breeding for money, if breeding responsible ever brought anyone a lot of money then my name isn't Gray Dawntreader. There are also health tests that must be performed on the breeding stock. The puppies must be dewormed, looked at by a vet, ahev shots before going to their homes! A good breeder NEVER lets the puppies go home until after 8 weeks (with some of the Toy Breeds it's 12 weeks). Think about it..are you even perpared for this?

    I would say the same thing...are you sure you're ready for such a huge responsiblity? I really don't mean it to sound rude in any way, but I would hope that someone intending to breed dogs would do a LOT of research. And, that the research would include how to get a breeder's license through a legitimate source, not just a quick fix online. Unfortunately, I don't have an answer to your question, but I just hope you have a good, long think about your motivation to bring more pups into this world and if you're really prepared to do all it takes to make sure they are safe, happy and healthy for life.
