55We LOVE this sniff spot. Our dog doesn’t stop running and swimming the whole time we’re there. It’s so much space and the creek is his favorite part! We are so grateful to have found this spot.
55A great spot!! My water-loving pup had so much fun playing in the water & playing fetch, wore him to a frazzle (in the best way😊)!
55It was a beautiful morning to be at Chip’s Sniffspot with Jack!
55Such a great spot!
55This was the best Sniffspot we have ever visited. So much space that was very well maintained and beautiful. Our dogs got to go in the creek too. We will definitely come back :) Make sure your dogs are okay being off leash and won’t run away though.
55Fantastic way to spend an afternoon with your dog and, in our case, family! We brought the kids and let the dog run free while we ate a picnic lunch. Picnic table is provided as are Chuck-it’s and balls.
55Gosh, what a beautiful property! I will definitely be back! Be careful with the mud by the river bank… I fell flat on my back like Charlie Brown trying to kick a football after 10 minutes of being there 😂 But it was peaceful, private and scenic! Highly recommend!!!
55I come here every Sunday with my girl. Perfect as always!
55This is our weekly Sniffspot! Always a good time and there are so many sniff-tivities for Chloe every time we go. If you haven’t been here yet, you’re missing out! The home owners are kind and generous people, that truly enjoy opening up their beautiful property for other dogs to enjoy!
55The property is incredible, our pups had a blast and they loved romping In the creek!

Stack discounts! The savings add up! 👍 We hope you will visit Nashville's very first Sniffspot and the most popular Sniffspot in middle Tennessee to this day! Read on for details … we love sharing our secret place! This Sniffspot is very conveniently located in southeast Nashville, 20 minutes from downtown, right near Bell Rd/Nolensville Rd between the Hickory Hollow pkwy/Tanger Outlets i24 and Bell Rd exits and the Brentwood i65 Old Hickory Blvd exit. An idyllic setting offers 7+ park-like acres of old farm land, mostly fenced, that includes waterfront access to Mill Creek with adventures for all kinds of humans and dogs to enjoy activities like playing, running, sniffing, digging and playing in the water. Come get your steps in and spend some quality off-leash time! Training, photo shoots, picnics, birthday and gotcha parties, just explore, rest, or relax in the Adirondack chairs while your dogs sniff, zoom, roam, retrieve, sniff, dig, walk, run, and sniff some more. There's creek access to swim, pastures to nap, play areas of tall grass the dogs can explore, dig or derp around. Even plan your picnic on a blanket or use the picnic table. Get some exercise on the trampoline (Note: use at your own risk!). Make this sniffspot your private oasis for as long as you want.. Kids are always welcome! Just book your play time, bring at least one dog and all humans are free! Mill Creek borders the very back of the property and is available for water play but trees and vegetation and overall acreage makes it easily avoidable if that's not your thing. If you choose to venture to the creek and have a runner, you may want to bring a long lead. The water levels are usually below the knee, but the ability to use Mill Creek safely depends on you, the creek conditions, and amount of recent rainfall. Always assess the abilities of you and your pets- as safety comes first! As Dirty Harry once said, "A man's got to know his limitations." The majority of the property has fencing so once you pass the house on your way to the back fields it's off leash play time! I recommend consider walking the perimeter first (on or off leash) to orient yourself with property features and assess potential escape opportunities. Your dog(s) will benefit from a perimeter walk allowing them to visually identify, mark their spots, and collect sniffs while at the same time reaping the benefit of your pack leaving an invisible "bread crumb" scent trail as you walk which will assist a dog with future identification of the established boundaries as well. This is a natural instinct for many breeds. Note that Mill Creek along the back of the entire property is not fenced but it is mostly obscured at dogs level by trees and vegetation. Tip: When leaving, you may want to leash up before you reach the house - especially if you have a runner since there is no fence on the side of the house you enter and leave the spot. Depending on the water table, there is also a small feeder stream gently flowing through the middle of the property between the side and back fields. It can be great fun for a dog to explore and jump in and out of (just try and stop them!) And great for smaller dogs if Mill Creek is too intimidating. Hint: bring towels! The mature tree lines always provide plenty of shade for those hot summer months. Several foot bridges are available to cross over that small stream between the side and back fields while exploring, and you might even find the occasional old fashioned rope wood swing. 7Acres Challenge: See if you can find the hidden steps! A black hose with spray wand attachment is hanging by the house at the entrance/exit if you need to rinse you or your pet. Another green hose is available hanging on the opposite corner in the back of the house by the BACK garage door for your use along with a water bowl. Feel free to pick yourself wildflowers if they are blooming (late Spring/Summer Varieties), or snack on some blackberries off the fence line if you happen to come while they are ripening (usually mid-June to mid-July).... Bug spray is always recommended spring through fall, Just in case! You can't have all this nature without all the nature. 😉 If the calendar shows the time slot you want is available then book it and it's yours! Be last minute, that's fine! Be spontaneous, that's great! No advanced notice required. (2 hour minimum cancellation required.) Did I mention memberships? 😉Lower the hourly rate with a monthly membership!! Up to 30% off the hourly rate! A great way to be rewarded if you regularly visit or want to help support your favorite spot. Whether you have a membership or not, Multiple dog discounts really add up! All dogs after the first dog are 50% off the hourly rate! Bring your pack and/or their friends for a doggy play day! 👍🐾🐾 You are dedicated If you're still reading this far, and maybe you are considering your first visit?? If so, use promo code 'Chip' which is valid to get 5 dollars off your first visit only! 😉 Contact me with any questions and if you would prefer to meet and/or have a guide to walk the property the first time, if I am available, either or both my wife and I would be more than happy to accommodate that! Last, honest feedback and suggestions improve our spot are very welcome and appreciated! And leaving positive reviews along with sharing pictures of your pet's visit enjoying the property will help our Sniffspot as well as others who haven't been here before! Chip

Hazards

Its an old farm, it has everything, from thick grass, tree stumps, tree roots, uneven ground, vole tunnels, holes from dogs digging, and grub eating wildlife and occasional groundhog holes. Wear appropriate shoes! Mill Creek is a highlight of the property, and very accessible in the back but can be a hazard if there's been a lot of rainfall and the creek can get very high, fast and dangerous so assess the conditions first and be mindful of water safety. It's usually very low and calm and good fun. Other potential hazards in the creek could be debris or trash like broken glass, sharp metal, tangled fishing lines or fishing lures that may have washed down near the property as fishing up and down the creek is very common. Around the perimeter, authenticity abounds as you can find thorny wild blackberry bushes, wild rose bushes, poison ivy, stinging nettle, poison oak, thistle bushes, a feeder stream with small sink holes under tree roots, puddles, ditches, occasional fire ant hills, old farm wire fencing, ticks, mosquitoes, wasps, bees, and other biting bugs (hint: bug spray). I do try and keep things mowed and trimmed to a large degree but this is untamed farm land around the perimeter and in areas of vegetation so it helps to be aware and knowledgeable about identifying and avoiding these types of hazards. Even though I do mow and care for this spot, I also enjoy existing with the beauty of the untamed growth which allows a true farmland/woods/field/pasture experience. Experiencing so many amazing varieties of vegetation, we have a huge oak, snuggling up to a flowering dogwood, and a mighty old maple down by the creek living next to a mimosa. The wild flowers, trumpet vines, honeysuckle, wild lilac, wild roses, blackberries, queen anne's lace, clover, black eyed susan, just to name a few, for example, are all popping out through the spring/summer/fall seasons. Literally dozens of species exist all around on this property and it changes through the seasons, which attract birds, bees, and butterflies. We have a great blue heron that lives here, ducks, turtles, blue birds, and of course the mockingbirds singing across the fields wanting to be heard while chasing the red tailed hawks away. It's a true nature lovers paradise and you will be amazed at all the beauty right in front of you. If you don't know your plants, just don't touch them. There is plenty of imposters that could be harmful, especially if allergic, and our state has plenty of poison ivy, so identifying that is an essential skill to have with Tennessee living. I am constantly battling with it! Not only flowers, but Wildlife has been observed mostly when scary humans are not around such as deer, turtles, frogs, rabbits, wild turkey, red-tailed hawks, kestral falcons, herons, geese, ducks, groundhogs, mice, snakes, armadillo, moles, raccoon, opossum, and the rare coyote, and even more rare bobcat and fox. Are you scared yet? :-). No parking lots or strip malls here! It's actually quite peaceful, and much safer than driving. 😁

Hi, here you will find a piece of southeast Nashville's farm-land history that is buried in the burbs...great for both non-reactive and reactive dogs and their humans to spend some together time off-leash! I enjoy spending time clearing and caring for this land and so I hope you and your dog(s) will consider spending some time to come enjoy it too. We are proud to be the very first Sniffspot in Nashville and even all of middle Tennessee and are the 2nd SniffSpot in the entire state of Tennessee! Browse the listing, read the reviews and come enjoy 7+ acres that has a lot to offer in terms of park-like open space, sun, shade, water, adventure and variety for your pooch. Bug spray, towels, water, toys and possibly a blanket are suggested. :)
