West Michigan and the Great Lakes are the premier destination for campers, hikers, kayakers, and outdoorsy folks! It’s so wonderful to see that more and more families are including the canine family members in their summer cabin and camp vacations! When you set up your camper for your outdoor adventure, please remember the steps to keeping your dog safe and comfortable. Always have fresh water available! Check your pet regularly for fleas and ticks. Monitor your dog to make sure their appetite is normal and not over heating or over exercising. Be polite and clean up after your pet. Keep them on a leash at all times and be aware that there may be other dogs also vacationing near by. Please respect the rules of the campground for dogs as not all areas may be open to our canines to accompany you. Please make sure your dog has proper and current identification on them. Do not leave your dog in a camper or car in the heat!
Most campgrounds do not allow owners to leave their dogs at campsites unattended, but don’t let that deter your plans. If you want to spend a day at the lake, check out a local tourist attraction, and spend a day away from your campsite know that Dog Star Ranch is here to help with lots of excellent options to you give your pup a day to play and socialize while you are away from camp. Doggie Daycare is an excellent choice that runs Mondays through Fridays from to . It includes an off leash walk in the parks or pond with their canine friends (supervised by a Star Buddy). If a weekend or later evening departure is a better option for you, we offer a Day Board that might suite you better. This is a boarding visit that can be done 7 days per week (weekends must be prescheduled). This option is set up more like our overnight boarding where you can pick and choose what exercises you’d like your dog to have. You can choose from a walk in the park or even luxury accommodations.
Also, campgrounds require that dogs be on at least a 6 foot leash at all times. Would you like an option to allow your dog some off leash fun? Dog Star Ranch has 48 acres of fenced in dog parks, nature trails, and ponds set up for lots of off leash fun and socialization! We offer daypasses where you can come day by day or for those that are longer vacationers or come multiple times in the summer, you may want to consider one of our memberships. You can do the month or even a seasonal / summer membership that gives your own key so you can come and go through the parks at your convenience.
The first step would be to call and talk to one of our Office Buddies who can help you decide what will work out best for you and your canine family member. First time canine guests do need to have a temperament test done by our trainers so that we can get to know them better, but that can be done on arrival if needed. For a complete list of prices or services, check out www.dogstarranch.com or give us a call at (231)766-0444. Make sure to follow us on Facebook as we share lots of fun information, photographs, events, stories, and specials with our fans there! We would love to give your dog somethin’ to bark about during your visit to
