Attention Park Members:

The Canine Express (walkway back to the nature trails and pond) will be LEASHED ONLY and NO CONTACT with boarding / guest dogs!! This is in effect until further notice. Fence running and chasing is NOT ALLOWED at the Dog Star Ranch and VERY DANGEROUS for you and your dog.  No exceptions to the rule.  If your dog is caught fence chasing and you do nothing to correct the behavior, you may be moved to a Reserve Member.

Dog Star Ranch is a 48 acre, fully fenced in, regulated dog park.  What does regulated mean?  There are also rules set up for the parks to keep you and your dog safe.  The above changes to the Canine Express are one of these rules.  For a complete list of park rules, please refer to our Welcome Packet    at

Reminder about the Canine Frontier nature trails:
The trails are fully fenced in so your dog is welcome to be off leash as long as you can see your dog AND your dog MUST have a recall.  There is no expectation to this rule.  If you can not see your dog or you can not call your dog back to you, you do not know if your dog is behaving or even if your dog is okay.  If this is something that you are struggling with, please make an appointment with our training team and we’ll help figure out what will work best for you and your dog.  If your dog is out of sight and recall and you do nothing to rectify the situation, you may be moved to a Reserve Member.

THE PONDS ARE OFFICIALLY OPEN!!  They are both clear of any ice so they are ready for use!  As a reminder, swimming is for dogs only, no humans.

What is a Poop Oops?  When your dog poops and you don’t see it, that’s an “oops.”  Assume that every dog has an “oops” from time to time.  If you see an “oops” in the parks, please do your part and pick it up!  Here at the Ranch we say “pick it up now or step in it later!”

The Dog Star Ranch Park rules are set up to keep the parks healthy and safe for everyone who uses it, human and canine.  We are here to help so definitely contact us with any concerns, questions, or issues.
