55Clean and well kept. Lots of sights and sounds to keep the dogs interested. We enjoyed our romp. Thanks again.
55The yard was perfect, with one off street parking spot, balls and other toys for the dogs. The lawn was freshly mowed, and the dogs had a good time rolling on the grass.
55Kelli is a great host!! She always has water / ice water on hot days, a clean yard & some sort of toys. My pups love her yard!!
55Nice yard for some run time. Left fresh water for our dog.
55This was perfect. Kelli left 2 bowls of water with ice cubes out and a couple of toys. I definitely plan on doing again. My dog enjoyed it. She liked watching people in the park. She has high anxiety so mid way through I could tell she was a little overloaded. I think if do shorter time more frequently, she will soon realize that we are not leaving her anywhere or returning her to the SPCA. For only being with us a month she is making so much progress.
55We had such a great time! And it IS the PERFECT yard for fetch! The yard is super clean and the grass was soft on the dogs' bellies. Kelli was so thoughtful and left out two bowls of ice water for them. For two dogs who can't go to dog parks, this was exactly what we needed! Thank you Kelli! We'll be back!
55Great place for my pup. She enjoyed a lot for the whole hour. She took turns jumping into the puppy pool and run madly with joy. Will definitely visit again.
55The dog park at my apartment complex got rained out last night. Such a great person to rent from, and a perfect yard for my lab to run! Thank you SO much! We will be back…. Often!
55This was the perfect space for our puppy to explore, run
55Quiet and clean - fresh water, bench and toys! We had fun and will be back :)

I wish I’d known about SniffSpot when I lived in a yardless apartment! Now that I have the yard, I’m happy to let other dog owners get some off-leash time with their best buds in a stress-free and safe space.

Historic and scenic property with natural barriers

I own 11+ acres in West Chester (bordering Downingtown), although I’m currently offering access to the 4.5 acres that is not fully forested. The side of the property you’ll be enjoying has the mill which was built in the 1760s and converted into a home in the 1970s. This strip of land is bordered by a creek on the one side, and a millrace on the other. The millrace is where the water used to run when the mill was operating many moons ago. Both the creek and millrace have water, although the creek has proven to be much more alluring to visiting dogs. The deepest area in the creek is approximately 8ft. There is a bench there for you to sit and enjoy the view while your dog swims in the water. There is another, more private area, where your dog can get easy access to the creek water. I can provide you with a chair to enjoy this area, and will likely already have it there upon your arrival. There are steep embankments for both the creek and the millrace so it would be an effort for your dog to cross them to “escape.” At the end of my 4.5 acre property, the land comes to a peninsula where the millrace and creek meet to become one body of water. This peninsula serves as a natural barrier although my friend’s young German Shepherd did jump out into this water and after a deer on one frightful day. Fortunately, we got him home/back but I think it’s prudent for me to disclose this harrowing event for the safety of your fur baby. There is an outdoor stone patio where you and your pup(s) can relax in the shade. Here you’ll find a filled water dish for your pup(s) to enjoy and a trashcan for your dog waste. If past dog visitors are any indication of future visits, your pup(s) will likely be thirsty from all the exploring, good smells and open land to run and play. I have one of those tennis ball throwing devices that help you throw a ball super far that you’re welcome to use too. I ask that you don’t encourage your pup(s) to chase after the wildlife here, not just for their sake, but for the safety of your pup(s) too. I think the hawks might have put a dent in the small wildlife around here. You won’t see many small animals like squirrels or bunnies, although you are likely to see deer. If your dog is a young/strong “chaser” you might want to visit with a leash. You’ll also find less snuggly wildlife here like snakes and ticks. I ask that you use your best judgement in supervising your dog(s) and be sure to check them for ticks before leaving. Of course at your first visit, I’ll give you a tour of the layout with your dog leashed to ensure your comfortability with the space. I’d ask you to kindly replace the raft in the creek should your visit cause it to pop. For future consideration: I have about 7.5 more acres of land (on the other side of Harmony Hill Rd) that is forested, rather secluded, and also bordered by the creek. Here you’ll find the remnants of the dam that used to feed the mill, and some amazing water landscapes including large rocks and crystal clear water. I’m slowly trying to establish a walking trail in this area but it’s been hard keeping up with all the overgrowth. I’d be open to bartering where you would help cut back the trail overgrowth in exchange for your dog enjoying the forested area.
