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.

    It may be wise to invest is a chain-link fence. Dogs can't chew through metal. You could also invest in an electric fence, but not as a replacement, just as something to keep him away from the wooden fence. Bare in mind that dogs with high prey drive have been known to go past the fence despite the shock, and if the power ever goes off, he can still get out. Another alternative is to put him out in his yard on a leash or tie-out. Just don't leave him tied outside for long periods of time. Dogs need companionship and they do not like being tied up.

    You could go out with him whenever you take him out.Make sure he gets walked a couple of times a day.If your afraid to keep kim inside while your away you might try to crate train him.It sounds like you leave him outside and dogs need companionship .. and a home with the people they love to be with.

    You are correct. He WILL get hit. He may be stolen and/or poisoned. Why would you leave the dog outside unattended? Having a dog is like having a child. You would not leave your child outside unattended. Do not leave your dog out. Your darling needs attention and love. I hope your dog is spayed/neutered. Staffordshires need lots of training and attention. They are WONDERFUL family pets with the proper care.
