Park Etiquette Session:
Saturday, April 22nd @ 10am
Having issues out in the park or just have questions about what to do in certain scenarios? We will be able to focus on: keeping your pup calm while walking on-leash down the Expressway during ON LEASH hours, recall in the nature trails, watching for rough play between dogs, as well as how to communicate with the other park members when something does not feel right. Remember: As Carol the Owner says “If it doesn’t feel right, it isn’t right”.

Risin’ Star of the Month for February 2017 ~ Blue Essex
Blue first started coming to the Ranch in September of last year, but Dog Star Ranch has been seeing Blue and other members of his furry-family for as long as we can remember. It was a great pleasure to be able to help the Essex’s with their newest furry-family member, Blue. It has been such a great experience working with both Blue and his hoomans.
When Blue first started coming to Dog Star Ranch he was a little on the timid side, he wasn’t quite sure what to think of it all, but once he warmed up he was very friendly and eager to meet the other dogs and humans.
When Blue first began his training adventure he was struggling with all the usual puppy issues like: sit, stay, come, no jumping, etc., but one of Blue’s strengths is his drive to please his hoomans! It was amazing to watch Blue pick up on most things relatively quickly, and he has been progressing at a really good pace, especially for how young he still is!
Blue still struggles with the occasional “puppy brain”, but as he continues to grow and mature, those moments of “puppy brain” are becoming fewer and fewer. He has an easier time now snapping back into work mode.
One of Blue’s shining moments was when his Mom called Dog Star Ranch to share a compliment that his vet gave him, they were just so impressed with Blue’s behavior! Goes to show that hard works pays off! Huh, Blue?!
Congratulations Blue on being nominated for the Risin’ Star of the Month for February 2017!
You are an intelligent young man with a very bright future!

Your DSR Family
