Rain, Rain, Rain!


Seems to be that the best days to be in doggie daycare are the days it rains! Nothings better than playing in the mud puddles and getting VERY dirty!

Meet Allison!

My name is Allison Yarnold , I am 13 years old , and I love dogs. I come to Michigan every summer to see my Uncle Pat and Aunt Carol. I live in Memphis , Tennessee, so Michigan is 11 hours away!  I have been coming to Michigan for 4 years! My favorite dogs are Murphy and Rango. They are the best!


When I come to Dog Star Ranch, I have so much fun taking Rango or Murphy on a walk in the nature trails, or taking them to the pond to swim, or just taking them on a Star Buddy walk! I love to walk around the building and take pictures of the dogs and staff.

** Check out some of the awesome photos that Allison took today!


Park Reminders:


Don’t forget about the Off Leash Saturday Socials in the Parks!  They are a great way to work on proper socialization with the trainer and also an opportunity to ask questions & work on issues!
$10 for park members / $20 for non-members

*Important Park Reminders*
Please Take the Time to Read:

If your dog digs a hole in the parks, please remember to fill it back in.  Thank you!

The Special Use Park utility gate (near the far end by the pond) is Off Limits for park members!  This is for overall park safety.  Thank you! 

Fence Chasing is a Major No – No!  It is dangerous for you and all the dogs involved!  If you don’t know the reason why, please ask us!

It is HIGHLY recommended that you carry a cell phone or some mode of communication!  If something happens to you or your dog in the parks and you need assistance, you then have a way to call for help!  Put us on speed dial at (231)766-0444!

Meet Robyn! I'm a 7 year old Border Collie. Last year my dad was in a house fire and passed away in the fire. Now my mom is to the point that she needs to move somewhere that I can't go with. I'm looking for a new home that will love me. Please call Rosemary at (231)301-2233 if you are interested in knowing more about me or meeting me for yourself! I'm a sweet girl that would make a wonderful companion to anyone :)

What a perfect day to spend it out at the Pond!!

Summer tips for your dogs!

 Watch for signs of dehydration.

Dogs can't sweat. They cool off by panting, so an overheated dog will drool excessively. It will become lethargic, its eyes will be bloodshot, and it may appear a little pale. If you lift its skin, it will take longer than usual for the skin to fall back into place. So try to always have water available to your dog when dealing with this warmer weather!

With 35 dogs today in Daycare, smiles are the only faces we are seeing!! Gotta love being surrounded by happy dogs!

Looks like this week we are going to have some nice sunny weather!! What's the best thing for you and your dog to do on nice warm days?!?!? Of course bringing them out to the parks and let them cool off in the ponds!! Hope we will see you out there!
