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.


How do I stop my dog biting

3 weeks ago I bought a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and she doesn't stop biting me, she is getting stronger and today drew blood. I tell her off but she still doesn't listen to me. I feel bad telling her off too because I think she is only playing? I don't know what to do!

    Hi, you need to learn more about dogs... puppies teethe. You need to provide chewing toys and not "tell her off" for doing something normal. You can teach her not to bite, but that is different than not giving her anything to chew on (like a bone or teethers) and then unfairly disciplining her. Read a puppy training book and provide plenty of stimulation, because teething puppies (and pups in general) can be destructive when left bored or for long periods of time unsupervised. ^_^
