55Grassy Bliss was just what we were looking for! Very nice, grassy yard and the dogs lived rolling around in it. The fence does have some openings based on its design and I was worried my cattle dog might ninja her way out but no issues. We’ll be back!
55Great sniffspot to run and play! My aussiedoodle loved it here! The yard was clean and the owner provided amenities including water, toys, and seats. Definitely a favorite! ❤️
55This was my first Sniffspot ever and my dogs and I loved it!! We have a high energy German Shepherd and a lazy Corgi. And both dogs has so much fun playing. Our shepherd is leash reactive and doesn’t do well with other dogs on leash so it was great to have him be able to run around with his sister in peace. BUT if your dog is human or noise reactive I will say we did see some neighbors come out to do some garden work. That’s not to say this isn’t a good place to bring your dogs because it was amazing it’s fully fenced and I wasn’t worried that anyone would find a way to get out.
55I really enjoyed the cleanliness, convenience, and availability of everything at this place. I plan to return and highly recommend it.
55Beautiful yard fully equipped with treats, water and bags. Highly recommend!
55Very easy to find with great sinage and easy parking. We could see neighbors walking dogs, but they were at least 30ft away to the sidewalk. Space was well kept and she had a fresh bowl of water out, some toys, poop bags, and treats! Thank you so much
55Excellent spot! My lab loved it here. Secure fencing, well-maintained yard, and beautiful neighborhood. The hosts had some extra toys and water that my pup enjoyed.
55What a nice yard for my dog to run and play. The owner made our time convenient and easy to enjoy. Thank you.
55Such a great sniffspot! Theo loved running throughout the backyard. Instructions were clear and toys/water were provided. I would definitely recommend
55Thank you for ice water and chair! I got to relaxed as pup enjoyed roaming.

Fully enclosed fenced backyard. Lots of space to run and chase balls. Wide open. Lots of shade in the morning, full sun for a couple hours during the day, and scattered shade from neighboring trees in the late afternoon.  Pesticide-free and natural lawn care, maintained and mowed on a regular schedule. Soft plush grass that feels good on paws and feet. Bring a blanket to lie down on and have a picnic! I'll be getting two rocking chairs in a couple of weeks!

Hi! Welcome to Grassy Bliss! Your own private dog park! Super soft grass that is well maintained in a peaceful neighborhood. We built this fence for our dogs to enjoy the backyard. They have all crossed over Rainbow Bridge so we thought that other pups could enjoy it as much as ours did. Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome! We have a spacious, secure private fenced and peaceful yard, in a quiet and dog friendly neighborhood. Easy parking on the street outside the house, and a side entry gate.  Our yard has sunny areas, as well as plenty of trees providing natural shade and much needed coolness during those hot humid summer days.  A natural wooded yard that borders a county park on one side, with a 6ft wooden fence all the way around the property, and a side entry gate.  **New 7ft foot solid wood fence being installed on thr 24 May. Completely pesticide/herbicide/fertilizer free yard!  Our ground cover is soft playground wood chips, soft for all pup paws, specifically designed to be comfortable for all kinds of furbabies!  We are open during rainy weather too for those of you with rain loving pups!  The overhangs, patio umbrella and tree coverage keep paw parents dry too!  Added bonuses, the chips dry quickly, there's no mud or slippery grass.  Plus the playground chips are a natural tick repellent.  A fresh thick layer of mulch added late April! You can also enjoy a deck with a patio table, cushioned chairs and lawn chair seating.  We also provide poop bags, doggie wipes and towels, extra dog water bowls, outdoor spigot with hose for water bowl refills or hose play, elevated feeders for the pups who cannot bend down very well to drink and a few refreshments for humans too! Endless amounts of smells and sniffing opportunities from all the local wildlife that frequent our yard.  Good space for running, playing chase, frisbee, tennis ball, chuck it, soccer ball action for the energetic pups, and plenty of space for meandering, or just lounging around under the shade or in sun spots for the more mature pups!  The public park next to us has several wooded trails, so if your pup has any energy left, it is a nice park to walk. Memberships are available for this spot, benefits include member only or priority hours during the cooler hours in the mornings and evenings in the hotter weather and shorter advanced booking times. All 100% of booking proceeds are donated to rescue groups saving neglected/abused/sick/healthy unwanted pets dumped in overcrowded high kill shelters - including recurring monthly donations to Pets With Disabilities; Lizzy's Lodge Rescue; Miri's Legacy; Angel's Among Us Pet Rescue; Big Dog Ranch Rescue; Shadows Sanctuary; Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue; Southside SPCA; HART; and Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation.  Thank you for supporting pups in need.
