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 can try spraying bitter apple or bitter yuck on it! It works great, you can get it from almost any pet store! It is non-toxic and just tastes yucky! You will have to keep reapplying it until Candy learns that her harness "tastes bad" Good luck! :D

    I agree that you could use no bite spray. If you keep using it, then soon your dog will realize that whenever she bites it (even if the spray isn't on) then it'll be a bad taste. After about a month or two, she should get it.

    Rusty used to chew his harness all the time. The best thing to do is to take it off whenever you are not walking her. She doesn't need to have it on all the time, and it could just be that it is uncomfortable for full-time wear. (Lots of harnesses rub dogs raw under their arms, for example.) It may be a little inconvenient, but the inconvenience is worth the money you'll save not having to buy a new harness every time you turn around.
