No Dog Is To Furry

The Sun has Finally Came Out!

Reminder: Saturday Socials

Ever wonder what it's like to participate in a Star Buddy Walk like they do in Daycare? Does your dog have some social issues that you have questions about fixing? Looking to enjoy a Saturday morning with your dog and other dog lovers?


Check out the Saturday Social! The Saturday Social is held EVERY Saturday from 11am to 12pm.


What is the Saturday Social? This is an hour trip in the park under the guideance of the DSR trainer. It is a Star Buddy Walk where you (humans) can participate! They usually begin in the Small Dog Park then branch out to other areas of the parks, such as the Canine Frontier nature trails.


Cost ~ $20 for non-park members / $10 for park members


Give your dog somethin' to bark about and join us for this week's Saturday Social in the Parks!

Zoom, zoom and there they go...

Dog-Gone-Waggin' Updates:

To Spring Lake and Grand Haven bus riders...

With gas prices rising, we are going to limit our trips to Grand Haven/Spring Lake areas to Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. These have been the most common days for dogs in those areas and we generally have several dogs that we are getting at the same time. If something comes up and you need a Monday or a Wednesday, please call the office to see if we can schedule it that way. The bus will continue to go to the Muskegon/Whitehall areas Mondays through Fridays. Please feel free to call if you have any questions regarding the bus or to schedule a service.

Did you know that there are lots of ways to save money on Doggie Daycare?

With the rise in gas prices everyone is looking for ways to save some pennies. Did you know that DSR offers Doggie Daycare packages that are designed to save you some money??? We primarily offer 3 common packages ~ 5 days, 10 days, and 20 days ~ and as each package goes up in the number of days you get, the price per day goes down! Let's do some math...


Let's say your dog comes to daycare once per week. If you pay for each day individually (not in a package) you'll spend $1300.00 per year, BUT if you opt to upgrade and do a 20 day package you'll only spend $988.00 per year. That's a SAVINGS of $312.00 per year! If you are a Sirius Star Park Member, you also get 10% off of that saving you even more. Not a member yet, there are lots of payment plans out there to make it easier to enjoy the parks!


We know that things are tight for everyone right now, but we have lots of ways to make things more affordable so you can still do all the things you and your favorite canine enjoy. Please feel free to give us a call and we'll figure out what will work best for you. Also check out all of our Doggie Daycare package prices at today! Don't forget to give your dog something to bark about today!

NOTICE about Pond in Canine Frontier (BoDean’s Bayou):

It is Open, BUT we have added clips to the latches on the gates into the second pond (some dogs have learned to open the gates on their own). Please return the clips to the latches as you enter/exit the pond. We hope to replace one of the current latches with the press down handles this weekend. Thank you!

Happy Birthday Daisy Duke

These pics may be from 2008, but I thought they were perfect for your birthday!

Spring Break is winding down...

All of us at Dog Star Ranch want to thank you for such a wonderful and entertaining Spring Break 2011! All of our guests had a blast and we were thankful that they spent their vacations with us! Are you getting ready to pick up your friend and thinking that they may need a bath or grooming before you pick them up? If you want to schedule a departure service for your dog, please call (231)766-0444 today to add that to their schedule and take home a dog that is happy, relaxed, AND sparkles!
Don't forget to add on some training when your dog is with us for boarding or daycare and we'll help work on problem issues or fine tune their manners.

DayStarS of the Month ~ March 2011

For the month of March we had a very strong tie between the Star Buddies at DSR as to who would be the DayStar of the Month. Due to the tie we have decided to name two dogs as the DayStar for the Month of March. Miss Sammie Berus has been a park member and coming to do daycare since she was a tiny pup. She is one of the many puppies that have been raised through the daycare program and who we have been able to share in her many happy years. Through daycare her family was able to survive all her puppy antics and we have all watched her mature into a wonderful girl. Sam definitely knows her routine and always gets what she wants, which includes some lap time with her best pal, Carol. A day is not complete without that, according to Sam. And no matter what treats may be in that bowl, she will not leave without her liver treat! You can try to fool her all you want, but she is way too smart for that. Sammy, thank you so much for being such a big part of all of our lives at DSR. Petey Dalton is a special boy to all of us at Dog Star Ranch. Petey has been coming to daycare three to five days a week since early 2010. He has the lovable Lab personality with a peaceful soul. He can make any of us smile and appreciate his wagging tail. Petey is completely blind, but that doesn’t slow him down. He still enjoys his play trips into the parks (and even the ponds) and he enjoys his times with his canine and human friends alike. Every day Petey comes in with a spring in his step and a stuffed animal in his mouth ready for the day. Petey, no daycare day is complete without seeing you wagging your tail all the way to the car with your stuffed animal in your mouth. Thank you for always making us smile!
