"I want to make sure that the dogs leave knowing how to play well with others so they go out and make the world a better place. It's about ripples."

-Shelly Gilliam


Here's how you can socialize your dog!

Dogs & the Rule of 7's

Play with seven different toys: big balls, small balls, soft fabric toys, fuzzy toys, squeaky toys, paper or cardboard, metal items, wooden items, or milk jugs.

Meet and play with seven new dogs in various surroundings: at home, a park, at a friend's home, while on a walk in the neighborhood, at the beach, and on the trail. Remember to supervise these meetings and use the one-at-a-time rule until the pooches are well-socialized.

Give them seven challenges: climb on a box, climb off a box, go through a tunnel, climb steps, go down steps, climb over obstacles, play hide and seek, go in and out of a doorway with a step up or down, or run around a fence.

Costco Children's Miracle Network Fundraiser 2008

The Doggie Dude Ranch was a corporate sponsor this year for Costco's month-long Children's Miracle Network fundraiser. We made a donation and manned a booth. We thought we were serving them, but Costco treated us like royalty all day. Thank you! The proceeds of this great event went to help the Phoenix Children's Hospital.


Sacred Heart Elementary Career Day

Sacred Heart Elementary in Prescott invited us to speak about being small business owners. We taught the children about the opportunity that business ownership provides to realize your dreams, and to serve others. In addition, we taught them about animal safety. The students thanked us with cards, drawings, and they even sang us songs!
