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.


Pawz dog boots for winter temps?

I live in Calgary, Alberta Canada and am in search of some good winter boots for my 20lb terrier. I have heard really good things about Pawz, but I'm not sure if they are suitable for cold conditions? Today it's almost -20 Celsius and my dog lasted about 5 minutes outside (and did not go to the bathroom!) before he was lifting his feet and wanting to come in. Does anyone have experience with very cold weather?

    HI there fellow Canadian. Now I don't live in Calgary but I do live in Ontario, we get somewhat cold winter days and I have found the best boots on the market are called Doggie Q brand. You will have to google it. They are a great price and are sturdy in cold and wet weather and great price. my pup Lefty has had a pair for 3 years and they are still good. I also go to a dollar store and purchase infant socks two pair and put those on before the boots go on. MY pibble Lefty thinks he can walk through anything with his Doggie Q
