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.

Cheers,
Dogster

It's the old story. Friend gets a dog when she moves into her new home, and a year later she has a baby. Now they are having problems with the dog (a corgi) and the baby who in now starting to walk. I would like to help them out with a good trainer suggestions. A couple of websites I have found...http://www.gentledogtraining.com/home.html or http://www.personablepets.com/ I tried googling behaviorist but it just pulls up trainers? - corgi has had basic obedience classes, but is showing some signs of aggression- this is from my friend, I actually have not seen the dog in those situations.

    The list of trainers you get form google may either have a behaviorist on staff or be able to recommend one in the area.. Found another article for you here: http://dogtime.com/introducing-dog-to-your-baby-aaha.html

    I don't know of a behavorist but is your friend aware that a corgi has a very strong instinct to herd. We had a corgi and were not aware of this trait until it got older and was determined to "herd" all the other dogs we have (chi's). It became such a problem that we finally had to find her another home (we donated her to a retirement home). She is the community dog and visits all the older people that live there. It turns out that she was great in this situation - we figured that she thought the older people were hers to take care of. I think your friend definetly has a problem, hope that a behaviorist can help - but their instinct is so strong it will be a difficult task. Good luck.
