About Doganthropy


Important Doganthropy Announcement

Dear Doganthropists

We wanted to let you - our dedicated Doganthropists - know of a difficult decision we've made here at DogHeirs recently. It is with a heavy hearts that we are announcing that we are discontinuing the Doganthropy program this Septembere.

We have greatly appreciated your participation in our Doganthropy program for the past months. We've had a great group of human/dog teams involved in helping to spread the word and "click" their support. Unfortunately, we did not garner enough membership in the group or get the sponsorship support we were looking for, in order to sustain the program.

Going forward, this means we will be removing the orange clickable hearts from your dog's profiles shortly and the Daily Doganthropist emails will no longer be sent. We will also be closing the Doganthropist group and support pages, although we encourage you to connect individually through our "Add Connections" feature to stay in touch with one another!

In the future, we may revive Doganthropy in a different format, or find an entirely new way to help dogs in need through DogHeirs. In either event, we will let you know first of our plans!

Again, we can't thank you enough for your involvement and your effort to help dogs in need. We hope that even though the program has ended, the philosophy behind Doganthropy will continue to thrive in your canine communities!

The DogHeirs Team

Is there a color that has a calming effect on dogs.

I know dogs see colors differently than humans. Dogs see blue and yellow the best. In humans pink seems to have a calming effect. I was wondering if there has been any research to see if there is a color that has a calming effect on dogs?

I live in Chicago and there are many off leash places we can go, but I am very cautious about going there.

I would love to help too!! Mollie (my profile picture) was a huge comfort to me when my sister was killed in a tragic car wreck in 07. When my best friend died suddenly of a heart attack in 09, it was Bella who comforted me the most. And this last September, my mother died unexpectedly and my foster dog Cooper was there for me. So, Mollie, Bella and Cooper would all like to help by becoming Doganthropists if possible! =)
