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.

  • He might have an uneasy stomach. Take him to your Local Vet. See if they can give him something from the Motion Sickness. Poor baby! :(

    OMG! my parents have the same dog and he did the same thing for awhile til one day he wouldnt get car sick anymore. i read online along time ago that you can treat him in the car if you had to get something from the car take him with you and treat him while you are there, do that for a couple of weeks.Then take it to the next level and do the same thing but with the car on. then after it with the car moving in the driveway then eventually on the road. ive seen alot of dogs get car sick.

    My Shasta used to also when he was about 7-9mo old. He threw up once, [yeah, you could tell that he had pretty much inhaled his supper that day... :S] He also would get really bad gas whenever he was in the car... never any other time. He is fine in the car now though.
