55So much to do and the space is very clean!
55Had another wonderful afternoon here! We did the Easter egg hunt add on and our pup had a blast! It is such a treat to have a space like this so close for pups to enjoy. We usually bring our own toys and water bowls but everything you need is provided. We will definitely be back as the weather warms up!
55The Easter egg hunt was a blast! Host is always very thoughtful and prepared.
55My puppies absolutely loved it there!!! They loved the Easter Egg hunt too! We will be back!
55We had the best time! I wish we had come sooner. Vesper hasn’t been able to let loose like that in a while and I felt like she was smiling the whole time. The property was very clean and free of debris. Lot’s of different things to check out and smell. We will definitely be back!
55I always enjoy my visits and this time, I enjoyed pairing my clients dogs together to become best buddies in the making. I really appreciate having two yards for initial separation before releasing them to play if and when they're ready 😊 Thank you!!
55Mac definitely had an amazing time
55We chose the Easter Egg Hunt add- on and my dogs loved it!
55Fully fenced and full of fun dog enrichment activities. Our 2 labs and beagle had fun digging and climbing and running along in the wooded trails. The chicken coop sparked their interest and they enjoyed taking a peek at that! We added on the Easter egg hunt option and the dogs sniffed out 24 of the 25 hidden eggs and they appreciated the freeze dried chimken treatos :) we hope to be invited guests and to return soon!
55Our first time with our 2 dogs that are fairly reactive. They LOVED it. Everything we could’ve possibly needed was provided and it was excellent. Can’t wait to come back!

Description

WE ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR STORM CLEANUP AND LEACH FIELD REPAIR **Stay connected to what is happening at the Playground though our online Community. Get updates on new additions, toys, specials, closures, and fun activities. Join our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goldendogplayground.** Announcing the Golden Dog Playground set on over 5 acres of land in Barrington, NH, with just over 1 acre of the space fenced in. We believe dogs are family so we have worked hard to create a customized experience for you and your furry family that you will remember forever. We offer two separate fenced-in areas that connect. Are you looking to expose/introduce two dogs in a safe and welcoming environment where you can monitor their body language and temperament? If yes, then our space is perfect. Each dog can have their own fenced-in area to play and observe or open the gate and connect the two spaces for your dogs to explore all that we have to offer. Included with other amenities, we offer confidence building equipment, a digging station, stretching board, pools for water (seasonal) and sensory play, enrichment toys, natural fitness stations and more! Have a special request or need? Let us know. We are happy to accommodate if we are able! Clean water bowls are also offered as well as a sink to easily refill and wash your hands or a toy as needed (seasonal). When done playing with the toys, simply leave them in the bucket provided for cleaning and sanitation for the next furry friend. On the back side of the house is a hose and sprayer as well as dry towels inside the bench (seasonal). Feel free to dry your dog off after splashing in the pool and wipe their feet before they hop back in your car. Simply leave the used towel on the bench and we will pick up. Waste pick up is simple and easy with the pooper scoopers and rakes we offer for disposing in our Doggie Dooley Septic Systems (seasonal). In cold weather, and year round, you will also find poop bags in our mailbox located just inside the entry gate. Please pick up and dispose of waste in the garbage pail found near the mailbox. We can't wait to welcome you to our Golden Dog Playground - an oasis set among the woods with distance from the road and neighbors.

Cleanliness

99% of guests said this spot was as clean as expected during their visit.

Hazards

**We are now in mud season and that has left divots in our backyard which could become tripping hazards for you or your dog. Please review the open area for problems if you intend to have your dog run or chase. Thanks** The area under our deck is open and dogs may enjoy hiding toys here or escaping the heat. Just be aware in case your dog likes these darker spaces. The opposite side is fenced so dogs would be unable to escape unless they are very small (under 10 lbs or extreme diggers). Sturdy wire fencing encompasses the Golden Dog Playground. If your dog is very small they could possibly fit through the spaces between the gates and fences and the fence and side of our house. In addition to the entrance gate, there is an emergency exit gate as well as 3 gates, which are locked, along the back fence in the woods. We have a wood pile that sits next to the fence. If you are worried about your dog jumping the fence, they could jump on the log pile and over the fence. The chances of this are slim, but worth noting for certain breeds of dogs (i.e. Malinois). There is also an exposed area under our solar array where some items are stored (see pictures). Please discourage your dog from playing in this area. The forest area has been blown free of debris, but rocks, roots, sticks, will be visible from storms/wind. We work diligently to keep these areas clean and safe. The back lawn can be a bit uneven due to settling of loam/rocks. There are also compost bins on the property. They are enclosed but something to be aware of. There are Hosta plants and other ornamentals within the fenced-in areas (seasonal). There is a landscaped area near our porch with rocks, a fire pit, chairs and ornamentals. There are 3 chickens enclosed in a separate fenced-in area on the property. If your dog has a high prey drive and you are concerned about them being fixated on our hens, choose "Hide Chickens" under Extras when booking.

The Hawthorne Hotel Dog Park In Methuen

A fully fenced yard for you and your animals to run and roam! The Hawthorne has almost an acre of land for your doggo to explore! Because of the heavy precipitation recently, there is a decent size puddle in the low ground of the yard and the grass surrounding it saturated. Feel free to use the hose to rinse your pup off if they play in the water. We are fully fenced in so y’all can run without worry! We have a hose and bowl outside for you to use for water. We have a large open area to play ball or frisbee and a meadow / English garden type area on the sides of the yard that provide fun terrain for your dogs to explore. The dogs are welcome to roam whenever they’d like, but please be mindful of what they eat since we have a native pollinator garden. The yard is enclosed by a combination of a 6’ privacy fence, as well as a chain link fence that abuts the neighbors backyard (no dogs), and a white picket fence reinforced with chicken wire on one side. The shorter fence is on an embankment so it’s almost equivalent to our 6’ fence that surrounds most of the yard. We mow regularly. There is always ample, safe street parking directly in front of the Hawthorne Hotel, as well as on the side street where there is a convenient gate that leads directly to the back yard. The best spot is right outside the gate. Please be mindful of closing the gate behind you when you enter and exit as it requires a firm tug to latch. Contact us to get a viewing or if you have any questions!
