Private Play Space (St Louis Park/Minneapolis)

Hello. My yard is fully fenced and available for your pup/pups. There's plenty of space for playing fetch or frisbee. If your dog would like a playmate, a very sweet, 34 lb German Shorthair mix is available most evenings and weekends. PLEASE READ: • ⛔ The gate/entrance is located at the base of our driveway, near the garage. • 💦 Our hose is located under the deck. There will be a bowl available for water. • 🐕 DOG NEXT DOOR: There is a dog that lives next door to the east that is OCCASIONALLY outside in the backyard. He is a friendly, chatty, medium-sized dog. • 🏖 We have a sand box for digging in the back of our yard. • ⚠️ There is a small GAP IN THE FENCE in the back of the yard. VERY SMALL DOGS CAN ESCAPE through here. Cleanliness: Although I keep on top of cleaning up after my dog, I do occasionally miss. Please excuse if you come across any dog 💩. 🤦 Hazards: Fire pit & very SMALL gap in back fence. Treats: I need 24-48 hours notice if your pup would like a Nelson's Deli smoked pigs eat or marrow bone ($5). Also, please send me a quick message so I can be sure to have it available during your visit. 🍖

Kaitlin's Private Dog Park In Minneapolis

Welcome to our backyard! We are fully fenced with a 6ft wooden privacy fence. Considerably good sized yard with a longer run for fetch on one side. Come run off some energy in a safe, clean, and private spot right in the heart of the metro. ***please help pets refrain from digging holes and barking*** The GPS location will bring you to the front of my house - note there is not any access to the backyard from the front gate. Please proceed to the end of the block on 25th Ave, turn left onto Logan Ave, and left into the first alleyway. You will see my house/fence on the left from the alleyway and you are welcome to park in the "driveway" next to the garage. Enter through the back gate, there might be a carabiner latch securing the gate - just remove and enter. There are toys and a water dish available. I can place out lawn chairs if requested. There is waste equipment and a disposal bin for your use near the garage/backgate. :) Thanks for visiting! See you next time!

Lita's Backyard Party in St Louis Park

Welcome to Lita's Backyard Party! Fully private 6 foot fenced backyard for your dog to run around. Lots of room for fetch and of course, sniffs! Great for small and medium dogs. But big dogs welcome too (as you can see my foster German Shepard puppy in the picture). My dogs will always be inside when you play and your dog will not be able to see them. Great way for reactive or shy dogs to get some private exercise in!

PLEASE READ BEFORE VISITING: • 🐕 ‼️ 👀 DOG NEXT DOOR: There is a dog that lives next door to the south that is sometimes outside in the backyard. She is a friendly, excited, large young dog. • Sorry, the hose has been put away for the season. Looking forward to bringing it back out in Spring 2024! • 🪟 WINDOW SHADES can be closed if that is best for your pup(s). Just message me in the app and I can close them if we are home. • 🚫🧪 We are a strictly NO PESTICIDES and NO HERBICIDES yard. • 🏖 We have a SAND PIT ✅ for digging under the big birch tree. 🚫 Please do not allow your pup to dig in the back garden beds with white flags. • ⚠️ There is a 5” GAP IN THE FENCE at the gate in the back of the yard. VERY SMALL DOGS CAN ESCAPE through here. You may temporarily place the board across the gap if necessary, but please remove it when done as this is a passage for the rabbits. • Dogs are welcome on the deck! :) We love saying hi through the patio door!

55We loved our time here! The fence seemed to be super secure, so I didn't have to worry about that. One thing to know is that there is a deck that has enough room for a dog to crawl under. My dog did, but she had so much fun crawling around and sniffing, so it was fine with me! There didn't seem to be anything for her to eat down there. Just be conscious if you have a dog that would refuse to come out or hide. The host also left out a nice, fresh bowl of water for us which we appreciated!

55Remus and his friend Windy loved this yard! We felt very safe by all of the enclosed fencing and the pups were able to do so many zoomies around the yard because of all the space. The deck was an amazing bonus as there was plenty of seating area for the humans, and Rhett left a fresh bowl of water out for us as well as some toys that the dogs loved to play with! I was pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was despite being in the city, so my sometimes-timid dog was able to be his goofy self and just enjoy all the smells and shrubbery in the yard. We will definitely be back!

55This spot was big enough to play fetch with my 60-lb dog. There were some other dogs who passed by, but they weren't too much of a distraction. There are some small gaps around the gates of the chain-link fence that a really small dog may be able to get through, but otherwise the yard was secure and I felt safe letting my dog run freely. There was fresh water when we got there, and a few toys.

Maisie had a great time sniffing around and playing some ball unimpeded. It was a little muddy in places but that’s to be expected with the warm weather.

55As someone who lives in a small apartment without yard space, I am always looking for ways to exercise and tire out my very active (and dog & human reactive) 18 month old puppy. This was the perfect spot! The yard was big enough for my pup (35 lbs) to run and play fetch while the high privacy fence ensured that she was not reacting to any potential passerby or attempting to make a break for it. The yard/perimeter was extremely secure and there were no people or dogs in sight. Chantel even kindly put out water and toys to welcome us. I am SO happy I found this spot to allow my pup to live her best off-leash life -- and then sleep soundly after. :)

55It's a good amount of space and my girl had fun! If your dog is a fence runner you should know that the fence along the the sidewalk / front of the house is a low for a big dog. My dog isn't a fence runner but barks at passer-dogs all the time so i kept her toward the back of the yard and away from the front fence.
