To the Dog Star Ranch Staff

Hello folks,

I must share this thank you with all~

A big huge THANK YOU must go out to the Dog Star Ranch Staff. I was away for 3 weeks for rest and recovery after a gallbladder surgery and when I came back everything was in great order. DSR staff has a quality and integrity that even left me overwhelmed with joy to know that I could truly take time off and know that all would be really good. “You all got this” feelin’

My 5 doggies stayed at the ranch for the entire time and last night I set down with them and it was as if I never left. What an amazing feeling to experience Dog Star Ranch as a guest. AMAZING!
So thank you again Jen, Nick, Tyler, Matthew, Jill, Carrie, Kristin, Jessica and Jeremy for your commitment to the quality of care of not just my dogs but all of our Dog Star Ranch doggies.

Sincerely, Carol Yarnold

Our camera is still under the weather so no pictures today, but it should be fixed shortly!

Today was a slippery, icy day at the ranch and all the daycare pups slid around outside for a little while. What a sight it was watching all our daycare kids learn how to ice skate! After playing outside for a little we moved them into the arena so they could run and play without slipping every which a way. Our daycare dogs always make the best out of what ever weather Michigan likes to throw at us.

Meet some new faces at DSR!

“My name is Kristin and ever since I was old enough to understand the positive impact dogs have on our lives, I knew I wanted to work at a place where I could care for and interact with our four legged family members. I, personally, have a rescued Papillon (named Gizmo) that is more a family member than a pet. You can find me in the grooming salon keeping our four legged friends clean and smelling great! I look forward to meeting each and every one of you and the very special dogs in your lives.”
Jessica's Photo to be added later...
“My name is Jessica and I recently graduated from Whitehall High School. I am currently taking classes at Muskegon Community College and I am trying to figure out what I would like to major in. I will be helping out in the Wag-On-Inn office this summer and I am beginning to learn a lot about dogs. I never had pets when I was growing up and now that I am out on my own I have one new kitty named Gracie. I look forward to meeting everyone and becoming more involved with Dog Star Ranch!”

Happy Thursday!
