55Never disappoints, varied terrain, lots of things to sniff and explore. Spooked some wild turkeys on the trail for extra fun.
55Great spot! I could’ve easily spent at least 2 hours there, if not 3. Lots of trails to wander and a pond to cool the dogs down after. We didn’t get to spend too much time at the pond because we were out on the trails. I would definitely book for 2 hours next time. Also appreciated another review that stated it was about 25min out of Monroe but well worth the drive.
55Zany had such a fun visit to this Bellfountain piece of Paradise. Lori provided excellent directions to include landmark things to look for (bars, house colors, etc) as well as detailed information about which roads to travel and ideal speed for the road. I find these instructions to be so helpful as we all know that Map apps can lead one on an adventure that isn't necessarily helpful. As you drive onto Lori's property, you will see a Sniff Spot sign which is also greatly appreciated. She even has signs for parking. This spot is peaceful, fun and has plenty of space to run and run and run and take an occasional splash in the pond. My dog easily located a few sticks for me to throw for him and he effortlessly bounded through the field with a smile a mile wide. We were camping out near the reservoir and drove into Monroe for Lunch. I would estimate it may take you about 25 minutes from Monroe to arrive at this sniffspot. Lori does say in her details to allow time for the drive. She greeted us with a map and covered any questions I may have had. Thankful to have a place I could go to help my little guy get his wiggles out.
45It was great. Our Loki loved it! It's a bit of a drive for us tho'. If we lived closer, we would go here more frequently. Thank you Lori for sharing your beautiful space with us.
55We had such a lovely time at this beautiful Sniffspot!! Our dogs loved the pond and all the open space. Thank you!!
55Absolutely amazing visit! This was our second time here. Host is accommodating and friendly worth the drive even if it’s not super close. Our first visit I had training dogs so we decided to go in the fully fenced field and had a great time. This time (our second visit) we brought our personal dogs to the rest of the property, the host gave us a detailed map of the property and explained it to us and we didn’t wanna leave!! 1 hour is definitely not enough time and we will be booking longer next time. The pot holes were annoying last time on the multiple mile drive way to the property but they are almost all filled in now so the drive was much much better super easy pretty drive now!!! Our dogs had a blast, the water features were absolutely the best, especially in the warmer months. I highly recommend you check out this spot especially if your dogs have a good recall and can walk the whole property.
55A beautiful location. A private place for your sidekick with water features in plenty of trails. I would recommend this location to anyone.
55What a great place to explore - hiking on trails in the woods and pasture with a lovely pond - the time just flew by, and both my dog and I wanted to stay longer! The host Lori was great, sent detailed directions and gave us a property map, so we didn't get too lost :-). We will definitely be back - this is a gem!!!
55Beautiful wooded area with two really great ponds and pastures. Host was so nice and helpful. Would for sure come for another visit! The pups loved it!
55Pot holes have been filled in and sign clearly indicates where you can park. Host offered to let us use the arena because it was raining so hard, which was really thoughtful. Still, we braved the rain because the property is beautiful and so much to do! Great spot.

Location

Monroe, Oregon

Description

The property is a horse ranch on 25 acres surrounded by private forest. There is a shallow year round creek that is refreshingly cold and also a large pond that your dog can swim in. There are hiking trails that start at the edge of the property. The trails are mostly uphill. The outdoor and indoor arenas are available for an extra fee. They are mostly dog proof for large dogs but not escape proof for small dogs. The horses wander around the property early in the morning so if your dog chases horses it should be kept on a leash around the horses. I recommend that I show you around your first time out here. To get here you must be prepared to drive down 5 miles of gravel road. There is a gate to get into the property. The gate code will be sent to you with the welcoming message. Cell phone signals are weak once you get on the gravel so check the pre-visit message sent two hours before the appointment before you get out of cell service.

Outdoor grass arena that is flat and approximately 150 feet x350 feet. Fully fenced with cattle panels. Fence is at least 4 feet high on the low side and 6 feet on the high side.
