  • 1. A getaway for the pooches during your getway.

    by: Heather02

    We left our dogs here while we went to Cancun last March. It cost about $600 for 4 days for the stay and grooming for both dogs. The dogs loved it though. They were able to run loose and get tons of attention which is all they wanted. The only thing I was dissapointed in a little was their dog temperment test. I guess they have to be very safe about it for the safety of everyone, but they deemed are dogs to be unable to be around other dogs because they were barking and jumping towards the other dogs. Knowing my dogs I know they were excited and wanted to go play, but they do have barks that sounds vicous, no matter what they are barking about. So unfortunately our dogs were unable to play with the other dogs while there, which is the main reason we had brought them there. The dogs still enjoyed their stay despite all that.

    Pros

    They have a lot of activities for the dogs and they get tons of attention while they're there.

    Cons

    Very expensive, Dog behavior test not accurate

  • 2. Neat place

    I have only heard good things from those who use this service. One person took her active puppy to Dog Star once or twice a week to get him the exercise he needed - he was an Aussie mix and had lots of energy!\r\n\r\nThey even have a pick-up bus - just like kids!!!

    Pros

    lots of interaction with people and dogs

    Cons

    none

  • 5. Daughter's dog loves the pond!!!

    by: klfowler

    When my daughter and I had a membership with Dog Star, the favorite spot for her dog Hooch was the pond!!! The rest of our pups would circle the pond, getting their exercise without swimming! Only negative is the wet dog - but you just do the pond first and then go play to dry off! Great place!!!!

    Pros

    a pond he can enjoy

    Cons

    none

  • 8. Dog Star Ranch - Something worth barking about!

    by: jodiclock

    The Dog Star Ranch is a dog boarding, grooming and play-park area located in North Muskegon. It sits on what was once a par 3 golf course with several hills and a few ponds. \n\nThey sponsor many types of pet activities for both pets and pet parents. Their facility is extreamely clean and their staff are well versed on who is who and what each pet's specific needs are.\n\nWe have used this on several occasions for our dogs for both short and extended stays while traveling. We do pay for the luxury accommodations, so our guys can roam freely with other pets behind the registration area and sit on couches while they watch TV. I would not hesitate to refer or think twice about using their services again. It's a great time and they guys have as vacation while they are there. just like we do!!

    Pros

    Plenty of rooms and staff to accomodate number of pets served

    Cons

    Not a big break for multiple pets when boarding
