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.
Dog won't stop eating toilet paper!
Okay, my dog has an issue with chewing things up. I know it's normal and all, but this is ridiculous. She has toys, so she's never bored, and still manages to find something to tear. She's about 10 months old, Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix. I know, she's still a puppy. But I've been trying to train this habit out of her ever since we got her at about 6 weeks. I know touching her flank or neck is supposed to work, but she doesn't even react.
The main issue is toilet paper. We have a small bathroom, with a vanity and a window. If the toilet paper is placed on the vanity or window, Lacy somehow manages to get it and tear it up. So, I've been trying to get everyone in the house to put it in the sink. It's not deep, but she can't reach in there. Or so I thought. Now, she grabs the toilet paper no matter where we put it. I've tried putting it in different places, but she always finds it. What can I do to help her understand that this is unacceptable, without constant buying?
