55Great spot! The mud catcher things for paws was such a great touch- it was so nice to clean his paws before getting in the car. We had a great time!
55My dog, Henry, and I recently had the pleasure of visiting this incredible at-home dog park and it was an absolute joy from start to finish. Before even stepping foot on the property, I received a warm and informative message from the host, outlining everything I needed to know for a seamless visit. Upon arrival, I had convenient, designated parking and clear directions on how to navigate the property. The small front yard led seamlessly to the back, where Henry’s adventure awaited! Despite the melting snow and inevitable mud, the host thoughtfully provided helpful tips and tools to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience for both myself and Henry. From the provided towels and foot cleaners to the assortment of toys and water bowls, every detail had been carefully considered to enhance our visit. And the best part? The invitation to explore the surrounding woods, with clear boundaries and reassurance that assistance was always just a knock away if needed. Overall, our time at this at-home dog park was nothing short of wonderful! The host's hospitality, attention to detail, and genuine warmth made for an unforgettable experience. If you're searching for the perfect place to let your dog(s) roam free and make lasting memories, this is the place. Truly a dog's paradise!
35Perfectly fine spot. Not a huge amount of space to run given that it’s on a fairly busy road with no fence keeping your dog from the traffic. My dog did find a deer leg and other animal bones in the woods which I know the owner has little control over but it was an issue for me since my dog has resource guarding issues. Just something to bear in mind.
55We loved the space! Fogs had a ton of fun playing hide and seek. The only thing we struggled with we making sure we were at the right place since there were no piof the building, otherwise we had a lot of fun
55We had tons of fun exploring both on the trails and off the trails. Lots of room for dogs to run and plenty to sniff!
55Great spot with lots of space for my dogs to run. They didn’t want to leave!
55Great space to roam with two big dogs. Able to do lots of running and good trails to keep you on track and to know where to go.
55Had a great time there. Doggies were super exhausted afterwards. Would have been nice to know where the boundaries were so that we could explore a bit more. There were quite a bit of bushes with torns so just a bit of warning when going. Other than that my doggies had tons of fun running around.
555 acres to run and play! We went right after it snowed so the pups tootsies got cold but this was still a lot of fun for all of us.

Description

TEMPORARY UPDATE (3/3/24): we have temporary closed our schedule for some land maintainanence and upkeep. Check back and I will announce a re-opening! ** If you drop me a message I will provide you with a reopening discount too! 🐾❣️** Hi! 👋 welcome to our spot! Just want to disclaim that we are brand new to this and are trying to navigate what people want most out of a great Sniffspot ☺️ We are making improvements to our spot every day based on guest feedback and making plans for the future as well! We hope you’ll come check us out! Our land is partially wooded, with open spots to run. There is a short roundabout path but the woods you can walk through too (I take my dogs through the woods you just might want to wear tear-resistant clothes). We are working on creating more designated paths now that we’ve seen some interest! **Concerning the cleanliness percentage**: We have wildlife come through a LOT, coyotes especially, so there might randomly be bones and things to be aware of, and a fair share deer poop! We try to let the wild be wild because we love our wildlife and want a nice spot for them too. Otherwise there is lots of good sniffing and running to do. There is some burdock we are working on eliminating slowly (we do not use chemicals). No other real hazards you wouldn’t find on a normal wilderness hike. We do have some stuff by the house but not out on the actual land. **The property has a ‘fence’ so as you explore you can see where our property ends as you walk with no worry of going off our land, but it is not an appropriate fence for containing dogs that need it.**

Cleanliness

88% of guests said this spot was as clean as expected during their visit.

Hazards

Some barbed wire deep in the woods bordering the right hand side neighbors property but difficult to get into and mostly covered by brush and other trees. Not in the way of paths or larger open areas. Wild raspberry bushes which means thorns! We will keep them trimmed back from the trails to best ability, just be aware of them. Buckthorn too (which we will be working heavily on removing come the spring and summer). Burs and burdock- also an ongoing elimination project. Some items near our house from ongoing work projects that you will see, but there is nothing down on the trails or on the main Sniffspot area. ☺️

Additional rules

If your pup poops in the open just fling it out into the woods (no need for all the extra plastic). If you prefer poopy bags just toss them into our trash bins at the front of the house by the driveway. Please be aware we live close to the road. I highly recommend leashing your pups until you get behind the house into the back.

    Host replied: I’m so sorry you didn’t have the best experience, Sophie! 😔 We do try to be very clear about our spot in regards to the fencing situation and potential things/hazards you might come across in the wild, so we will definitely take your feedback to heart! I do want to clarify for future visitors that while there is definitely one area that accesses the road, the majority of the actual land out back is not close to any road or traffic, especially once you are about the woods and field. ☺️

    Host replied: Yay! Glad you all had lots of fun! ☺️ Thanks so much for the feedback, we will gladly take any tips to help make us better. I will post a picture of the house so people are able to recognize it. Appreciate you visiting! ❣️🐾

    Great space to roam with two big dogs. Able to do lots of running and good trails to keep you on track and to know where to go.

    Host replied: Thank you for your feedback, Kalia! We are going through and trimming up and cleaning out more trails now that we’ve seen some serious interest in our spot. And apologies about the prickles! That’s our wild raspberries so thank you for mentioning them. I’ve added them to potential hazards so others can be aware. Appreciate you checking us out! ❣️

    5 acres to run and play! We went right after it snowed so the pups tootsies got cold but this was still a lot of fun for all of us.

My husband and I have 4 dogs, two German shepherds and two shepherd mixes. I know how stressful dog parks can be and finding places to take your pups to roam free uninterrupted is just as hard too! So I am happy to provide a safe quiet place to allow you and your pups a fun place to run. ☺️
