Perfect Day for a Dip in the Pond

With the water warming up it was the perfect day for our daycare friends to get out for a fun swimming day. No matter what type of dog they all have one thing in common, they looooovvveee their pond time. Even if they arent going for a full swim alot of them just love to dip their feet in it and cool off from all the running fun.
Just so everyone is aware we still have one last opening for our Risin' Star Advanced Class. You do need to be evaluated before joining but its a great learning experience for you and your dog.

Tuesday March 30th

Picky eaters, excessive barking, loose stools, gassy tummies, mood swings, restless sleep, hot spots, compulsive disorders, reactivity, aggression, hyperactivity, and biting can all be symptoms of a bad diet.

Diet truly does have an affect in dog behavior?

Bear in Daycare Manners

This is Bears first day in Daycare Manners and is doing great. For those who don't know, Daycare Manners is when your dog will spend individual time with the trainer while they are in daycare to work on basic manners, focusing on your requested needs.

Friday March 26th

Thought of the day.......
Love and respect are two totally different emotions in the in your dogs mind. Your dog can love you and not respect you, but you can never gain your dogs respect through love and affection.
Your dog can gain love and respect for you with the training program here at Dog Star.

Spring has gotta be here! And we have "visitors" !

Something new in the parks...

* * * Holdin' Corral * * *
When you go to enter the parks, you'll see the new DSR Holdin' Corral. It's right next to the entry double gates (inside Central Bark) and it is a spot that can be used for temporary holding of dogs. Let's say you have multiple dogs to bring into the parks and you have to do it in shifts. Bring in your first one(s), put them in the Holdin' Corral. They will be safe in there and out of the way while you get the remaining dog(s). Need to take a human "potty break" and you don't want to leave the dogs unattended? Put them in the Holdin' Corral while you head into the Wag-On-Inn!
