55This is a wonderful property that has a great field for the dogs to run and play. There is even a little forested area in the back with a tiny trail. The host has been great about communicating details on how to use the property- it is a working farm so you can expect to see farm workers etc. The neighbouring property has a dog kennel, where we could hear them barking but never saw them. Loved this property to take our reactive dogs off leash for them to have a good run!
55My pups had a blast! It was so heartwarming to see them run full speed as long and as hard as they wanted. We will be back!
55Great location! The field was interesting to explore, there was a forested area and a larger, open field. We played some fun games of hide and seek with the ball, wandered around and explored and just sat back and relaxed. There are chairs for sitting and a beautiful view into the valley.
15The owner can NOT be trusted to put her own dogs in. The dogs, when left out, are about 15 ft away from ‘the ideal place to park’. So you’ve got dogs right there, barking at you and your dog, before you’ve even turn off the car. When I messaged the owner with my complaint, she responded with NINE separate, defensive messages between 1:05 and 1:16 AM. 🥴. The owner is not friendly and does not make any overtures whatsoever to meet you on your first time or otherwise.
55We had a wonderful time. I wasn’t sure where the field was initially -> it is in the back behind the round steel structure. The field is big and very peaceful. My dog reactive dog ran her heart out and ate her weight in grass. Thank you for letting us play in your field. We’ll be back. :)
55Great space, large, clean, dogs had a blast! Perhaps something to provide some shade come the summer time… Thank you for providing this service for our dogs, a real treat!
55Shared it today with a friend and her puppy and we had the best time.
15The property was everything I had hoped for. A great area for my friend's reactive dog to run and play with my dog.
55Perfect place for our reactive dogs- it was so nice to have them off leash and no worry about them running into another dog, cat or animal. Very large field with full fence and lots of room to run, fetch and sniff. Loved the place and will definitely be back.
55Awesome space! Our dogs loved it. Thank you!

Description

For added set ups for dog birthday parties needing a picnic table set up see add on sections. Shaded umbrellas coming for the warmer months.

Additional rules

Not a recommended place for dogs with extreme aggression with the kennel next door. I would recommend reaching out to professional rehabilitation centers/facilities in Victoria for professional guidance. Smoke free area. Please be mindful this is a farm field not a sports field, so there will be some rocks, uneven ground. Remember when booking that this platform is in US dollars so I've tried to set the price to be around 14/15 dollars Canadian. You will see it listed at 11 dollars American. Two chairs provided for sitting but please ask if you would like more chairs to be placed out and if you require a small table on request. Garbage can provided please pick up after dogs as this is a kid friendly zone. PLEASE READ THE AUTOMATIC WELCOME MESSAGE THAT IS SENT WHEN YOU BOOK IT WILL INCLUDE ALL DETAILS ON ADDRESS and HOW TO WALK TO THE PARK ENTERANCE.

The owner is not friendly and does not make any overtures whatsoever to meet you on your first time or otherwise.

    Host replied: Spot descriptions makes it clear there are dogs on the property in a fenced in private yard that I try my best to bring in while people load and unload their cars. I was changing a diaper. I apologized that you had a terrible experience and refunded. It is also clear that this spot is next to puppy love kennel where dogs are in view of the spot and they bark over there too. I can not keep my dogs locked up all day and they are very playful friendly dogs that just bark when new people enter the driveway. Again, for anyone that can not read my dogs are in a private fenced in area where my kids also play and I try my best to bring them in when people load and unload their cars. The waiver form also says to keep dogs controlled on a leash as people may come into contact with other dog visitors leaving OR entering the spot. Anyone that can not control their dogs on the occassion of walking past another visitor who is leaving the dog park or heading towards the dog park is not welcome at this spot. It also says to call or text me before arrival if you have a dog that doesnt like barking... as I am very busy and some people book within the hour. I am very happy to meet with people and welcome people to even ring my door bell. The majority of people that use sniff spot have just not wanted to meet as the descriptions are so detailed. I have also written in a couple places to call or text me if you need anything before coming. I supplied my number and my dad's and you didn't call or text me once or my dad.This review will be very useful to keep up as I don't want anyone visiting my private property that can not control their dogs walking from their car to the sniff spot. This is not the place for that type of dog or dog owner. There are children, dogs, I am a very busy mom of three young children. On the instant of your traumatic experience I was changing a diaper where my child had spread his poop all over his crib. I emailed at 1 am when i saw your message because my baby was awake. Why would it matter the time an email is sent? This is a reminder to anyone that reads this. The actual sniff spot is a field located at the back of the property. Surrounding this field is a very busy working farm atmosphere that people are not renting. To shut the farm down for a visitor id need to charge more. So do not book if a dog can not be comfortable with the slight chance of coming into contact with another dog on a leash or behind a fence as there is also puppy love pet care in view of the field. Which many reviews mention. Anyone that gets to the property, looks around and doesn't like what they see. Just leave and you will be refunded in full.
