45Great place for my dogs to run. Had some difficulty getting the new door to open from the outside. Otherwise perfect spot! My dogs always love it here and it's a relaxing spot for their people.
55First experience with Sniffspot was great!!! Loved the area and toys!
55I had some difficulties with opening the gate. One quick call and help was on the way! Thank you so much to the Playful Pups Retreat owners and staff for your help! This was our first Sniffspot adventure. And that’s exactly what my girl did the first 15 minutes - she sniffed everything! And while we brought two of her favorite toys, she was much more interested in the toys available to play with. This was a great first experience and we will definitely be back!
55Great spot! This was our second time visiting, and we will be back for sure!
55My service dog Mesa and I had a great time at this location! The fence is high and secure, making it feel very private. There's more than enough room to run, play fetch, or work on training. The addition of a toy box, water bowl, and seating area were huge bonuses. The only thing I wanted to note is that there are a few holes-- if you or your dog weren't paying attention, you could step in one and possibly hurt yourselves, but they are very easy to spot. As long as you are the tiniest bit aware of your surroundings, you'll be fine. Mesa and I will definitely be back!
55Nice and secure
55Our dogs loved coming here! Completely wiped out after our visit today, loved it :-)
55Fun in the sun for these 2! They love the space and the toys!
55Nice secluded area for our dogs to run
55Bruno always has fun at this Sniff Spot… since today it decided to warm up a bit we were super exited to get out and run freely. It was a little wet and spots were still snow covered but we enjoyed every minute of it. And as always he played his hardest when I told him we only had 5 more minutes left.

We do have a nice walking trail that meanders through our property but please be aware that our Playful Pups Retreat Staff may be walking overnight boarding dogs on the trail during our business hours. There is a container with a few toys to play with inside the SniffSpot yard but we do suggest bringing your own toys. Please bring poop bags and clean up after your pet. Please take bags of poop with you or stop at Playful Pups and dispose of it in one of our outdoor trash receptacles. FOR NOISE SENSITIVE DOGS! PLEASE BE AWARE WE DO HAVE A GUN CLUB NOT FAR FROM THIS PLAY YARD. DEPENDING ON THE DAY THERE MAY BE GUNFIRE. NOTE: If you want to walk your pup on our nature trail please stop in at Playful Pups and speak to one of our reception team.

    Host replied: Thank you for your review! We are glad you had a good time with Mesa. We have had the holes fixed before, and we have someone who is supposed fill them again soon. Unfortunately, dogs sometimes dig holes, or groundhogs have also burrowed into the yard previously, although their holes are typically deeper and tunnel off. We appreciate your understanding.

Hi dog lover! My name is Laurie Yost and I own Playful Pups Retreat. We have two locations in Elizabthtown and are always looking for new ways to serve our clients and the dog lovers in our community. Our overnight boarding facility, located at 850 Milton Grove Rd, Elizabethtown, is situated in 19 beautiful acres. We have a large play yard at the one end of our property that is fully fenced with a wooden 6ft privacy fence that we are happy to now rent out to dog lovers who need a safe and secure area for their dog(s) to run, play and train.
