55We felt so welcome here at the Shire. Our names were written on a sign and the property feels very secure and is easy to find. The Shire is a great sunny spot! We appreciated the toys, water, different cozy seating areas, both sunny and covered, and all the amenities. Such a gorgeous country cottage feel to it with only a short drive from home. We had plenty of room to run, play frisbee without worrying it would go over the fence, and Reggie chased a squirrel up a tree.
55We have been here a few times over the last year or two and it’s always a great time. Really clean, open, and has lots of different areas for your dog to sniff and explore.
55Great little spot! Enough room to get the zoomies out and throw a ball. We’ve been here a couple times and will check it out again.
55Beautiful spot!
55Always a wonderful time here. Lots of room for my dog to run and play, plenty of toys, cozy places to sit. Feels like being farther out of the city than it is, in a nice way. My dog loves it here so much, she starts getting excited half a mile before we arrive!
55Great spot! We will be back. Plenty of room for playing fetch and also lots of area for my older dog to walk around and explore. Clean, welcoming, and easy to find. So grateful to the owners for being involved with Sniffspot.
55We had the most amazing time! Perfect amount of space for the 5 pups we brought over. Host was extremely kind and accommodating!
55Easy parking, lots of amenities, and my dogs had a great time!
55So much space for sniffing! We had a great visit at the Shire ❤️
55Such an amazing host . I told her me and my 2 little girls and mother were going to. Be there with me , the host left out a trampoline for kids,

Hazards

A tree fell in the yard so there is some excess shrubbery in parts of the lawn near the felled tree -Side deck can be very slippery during rain - dogs ok, but humans may wanna avoid it when it's wet out -Front porch has rocking chairs, ammenities, and extras for guests to use, but there is also a barrier gate on one side to close off access to another side yard that has lawn equipment & other hazards -We have an active mole, so there will be dirt mounds (we collect for soil) that may look like there's a horse on property... We promise, there isn't lol Thank you!

Extras

Extra Heat (rental)$5

While the porch and rocking chairs provide comfy shelter out of the rain, and are always available to our guests, add Extra Heat to your booking and we'll bring out a shmancy stand up heat lamp to help nip the chill a bit.

Welcome to my whimsical and woodsy play place in the city. The Shire is a large, happy go lucky yard that reflects seasonal changes with its varying colors and foliage.🌼🪻 Always spacious enough for fetching and endless zumiez, it also offers hide-aways, bushes and trees for the adventurous, sniffy pups to explore. Dogs in-training will enjoy the safety of full fencing as they learn how to both play independently and respond to our typical surroundings of occasional winged🦜, wheeled🛞 and pawfoot🐾 traffic. This 2yr old sniff spot is also a spot in-training with growth and improvements being worked on every season. I welcome feedback to help make every visit a most FUN-furred experience for all our dogs and their fun-loving families!

11/29/23: NEW!!! NOW OFFERING COMPLIMENTARY CLEAN RAG AND HAMPER FOR EACH DOG. ONLY ONE PER DOG PLEASE. WE'LL WASH THEM AND REPLACE THEM INTO THE 'CLEAN' RAG BOX AFTER LAUNDERING. Proud to be chosen as Sniffspot's global business model again in the February 27, 2024 online Newsweek magazine, the June 5, 2023 of Womens World magazine. Also featured in Business Insider on June 9, 2022. NOW YOU'RE WELCOME TO DRIVE ONE RIG INTO THE FIELD, MUD FREE (stopping at end of asphalt), then closing the big farm gate behind you so that you can release your 10# and over pup(s) without leashes. or worry of them getting into the road! VERY IMPORTANT: EACH PARK (F1 AND F2) HAS A SEPARATE ENTRANCE AND DRIVEWAY WITH THE SAME ADDRESS. SO, YOU MUST READ THE SPECIFIC DRIVING DIRECTIONS INTO EACH PARK. PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS TOO IF THEY'RE MEETING YOU HERE. THANK YOU!! Upon entering, you won’t be able to see the people or dogs in field one (F1) while you are in F2. Maybe just a glimpse of them when they are arriving or leaving their cars from a distance. We have buildings and trees that separate the two. We offer poop bags all around the field, and a garbage can for your use (used poop bags only please). If you happen to see a pile someone missed, please help us out, but PLEASE BE AWARE OF YOUR PETS AND PICK UP AFTER THEM, TOYS TOO!!!. Thank you so much for your cooperation! We also provide a large fence attached bowl and water hose, balls/chukits and fun toys, comfy swing, and plenty of tables/benches. ALSO, if you'd like to have an event on our farm anywhere, we can discuss your wants and make something work for you. We also host overnight stays in two cottages we have on the property. BUT, you CANNOT bring your pets here to stay the night. We want to keep the cottages pristine and dander free for our Airbnb glamping guests that book here. Thanks for reading! Hope to see you here soon! We know you will love our magical farm!
