55What a fun Sniffspot! Beautiful space, fun barn and a great mix of a hill, solid fence and grassy areas to explore. We had a great time.
55Beautiful lot! great for a large dog like mine. My German shepherd got all his energy out here!
55Great open space, easy to find!
55This was a lovely yard. The yard itself was huge and secure. The dogs loved running around and the toy chest was a plus. The drive from dc is about 35 minutes without traffic and worth it. I would be cautious if you are driving in from dc during rush hour though. They do have a dog who only barked when we arrived. We did see a fox across the street which one of my dogs loved.
55Great spot for my pups to run. Fully fenced in and had lots of toys to play with.
55Spent a great afternoon here before visiting Lake Anne and the dogs had the best day!!
45Very large sniffspot, lots of room to run around and plenty of shade. It was clean, no dog poo in sight. The host supplied chairs and a table for us humans, trash can, and toys. There was a water bowl and container that had debris and algae on it, so we just used our own water and bowl. I have a rescue dog with high prey drive and reactivity, so the fencing was bit nerve wracking. The fence goes all around the property, but has two horizontal gaps, about 8 inches apart. There is an extra layer of wire fencing about a foot or so high which couldn't have stopped my dog if she really wanted to get through it. Luckily, we didn't see any animals or people during our visit, but they would be pretty visible if around.
55This place was great! My three pups had an absolute ball running on this huge yard. The fence was secure and they even left out a water bowl for them. This was our first experience with sniffspot and we couldn’t be happier.
55Great spot lots of room to sniff and run. Toys,treats and water provided. Beautiful piece of property. Will be back. Thank you
55Their yard is a dream! He loved it!

The property is fenced in, with the ability to close the gate when dogs are within the park. Parking available in the grass @ the front of lot. The “park” is still being developed so stay tuned for more “dog friendly fun” activities. As the weather warms up, we will provide water fun for the doggies, too!

Relaxing oasis in Alexandria

After living in a townhome in Old Town for 20 years with no backyard or outdoor space, I decided to buy a new house. My dogs only exercise was walking on a leash or finding empty dog parks at strange hours. Although my dogs were well-behaved, I observed a lot of negative behavior from pets and owners in city dog parks and wasn’t comfortable letting my dogs mingle there. When I bought this house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to create an oasis for my pets. My landscape architect clearcut 75 feet back into the woods, installed retaining walls to help level the steep slope on the side yard and planted lots of grass to create the perfect backyard. The property is on almost an acre, so the back of the fence is very private with a wooded area. Occasionally, you can see deer on their way to the creek and hear fox behind the fence, although that is usually after 11pm. There is a lot of privacy and nature to enjoy from the patio. Since my yard brings so much joy to my dogs, when my friend told me about Sniffspot, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to share this dog friendly space with the community. There is always ample street parking right in front of my house.  The 6 foot fence is reinforced with chicken wire to keep small dogs in and other animals out. The gentle slope is perfect for fetch to wear out high energy dogs faster. Lots of areas to sniff and explore. The entire yard is dog friendly with no pesticides or toxic plants. Water hose, dog bowl, toys, dog bags and trash can are provided. This yard was created for my dogs so all furniture is pet friendly and the dogs go wherever they want. I do try to keep them out of the fenced part of the garden (where the tacky yard art lives 😂) due to beer traps for the slugs but I don’t freak out when they jump the mini-fence. I don’t want any guest to feel any stress while visiting. Dogs will be dogs and normal dog behavior is expected. There is a fan next to the gazebo for warm days. The fan is plugged into a multi-outlet extension cord and you’re welcome to use both! If you’re into grounding, I never wear shoes when I’m in my yard. The entrance from the street is double gated, like a dog park, to prevent accidental escapes. Enjoy the gazebo and patio with dog beds for relaxing and shade. Surrounded by trees, the birds and fountain offer the perfect oasis to get away from high stress city living. Wednesday late mornings and early afternoons are blocked off for my lawn mowing company. Monday mornings, my dog poop pickup company services my yard. On Mondays, they usually come in the morning, but I don’t have a specific time. If you have a people aggressive dog, you may want to avoid this time since I don’t know when they will actually show up. I do pick up daily but have the service for anything missed as it’s a large yard with 3 dogs to track. If interested in hosting a party, I am open to a group of people and more dogs than the limit states. Send a chat to discuss details.
