55My friend Lizzie and I love to take our dogs to Canter Wood. The property is beautiful, clean and well maintained. Her dog can't wait to get to the little dog pond where mine has no interest. Mine will run after her dog when Lizzie throws a ball. They get so much exercise that both fall asleep in the car on the way home. For both dogs it is the best part of their week.
55Dooley just loves the farm!!
55Our active Labradors always have a wonderful time!!
55Had a lovely visit at Canter farms 😊👍
55Absolutely Awesome Amazing! My Dogs LOVE to run around and swim in the ponds!!! Great enrichment for them .. this sniffspot is The BEST!! Thank you Tess!
55Another great visit.
55Fabulous place.
55Such a wonderful place for our labs to swim and run free!
55Absolutely wonderful! A fantastic find in our own backyard. Tess, the owner, is extremely kind and thoughtful. The property is secure, grounds are immaculately clean with thoughtful guests picking up after their pets. We had two small dogs with us. They loved being near and going into the small dog pond and we enjoyed sitting and looking at the water lilies. It was the first time my adopted pet has run free since I got him 9 months ago. He loved every minute of it. We plan to return next week and do it all over again. Thank you, Tess, for opening your farm and allowing our dogs just to be dogs. They ran, played, fetched and were exhausted on the way home. It could not have been a better experience.
55It truly is a perfect place for dogs to run around! We have two littles that hate water and would never go in the pool or any water whatsoever… well, they both swam in the pond, we had to give them a bath when we came home.. they are sleeping on the couch right now, exhausted. They absolutely LOVED it and so did we! Planning on coming back soon!

Description

Welcome! We are excited to have you and grateful to our guests for making us the 2nd most visited SniffSpot in all of Florida 🩵 Got a big, energetic dog who needs a lot of space to run? You’ve found it! If your dog is happiest in the water, we are here for you! We are a haven for dogs with Strong Opinions about things! 🤗 Doesn’t love people? Come on over! Hates other pets? That’s cool! Lives to chase squirrels and moles? We’re overrun, you do you! We are blessed with 19 gorgeous acres of ♿️ HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBLE pasture, ancient live oak hammocks, and trails surrounding 3 ponds and a creek leading to a cypress swamp. It’s Old Florida at its very BEST. Canter Woods is on the corner of two dead-end dirt roads with barely any traffic. We are now FULLY FENCED so your dog can safely work out every ounce of excess energy! Seating and picnic tables are provided throughout the property, and there is plenty of natural shade. We have a private road that runs all around the inside of the fence, so if your dog likes to run alongside you while you pedal, go ahead and bring your bicycle! The road/trail is almost completely shaded, so even on the hottest of days, it’s quite pleasant. One of our trails, which fully accommodates any vehicle, leads directly to our main seating area adjacent to not one but two ponds. Guests who use a wheelchair, crutches, or a walker can make it from their vehicle to a sturdy chair or lounger in just 6-8 feet ♿️ If you would like access to this parking spot, simply arrange with us. Our shallow swimming ponds are fed nonstop by a deep artesian well. We also have plenty of wildlife—depending on how rambunctious your dog might be, you may see otters, soft shelled turtles, tortoises, wood ducks, raccoons, armadillos, rabbits, and squirrels. We also have a plentiful supply of water birds—herons, egrets, and more. We are a Certified Wildlife Habitat™️! 🍃🌱🌿🪵🐇 We have horses on the premises in paddocks, and they’re tolerant of dogs and their mischief and love ♥️ our SniffSpot dog guests. Hopefully your dog is tolerant of these large mysterious creatures and doesn’t harass them! If you think your dog might be aggressive with the horses and get over or under their sturdy 4-foot paddock fence, please use a leash when in proximity of the barn and paddock! Do note that our horses are ridden and worked often, so there’s always the possibility that you will encounter “evidence” of a horse having passed there before you 😉 As we say around here, that’s farm life for ya! If that kind of thing bothers you, this probably isn’t the right spot for you. We are not manicured lawn—we are a farm and woods and a certified wildlife habitat. Note that we do have some predator animals such as hawks, owls, and the occasional bobcat, so this area is best suited for dogs over about 15 pounds. We keep our 4-lb chihuahua mostly inside, since we moved here. Parking is near the main entrance gate, close to the barn, and you are invited to start off your visit on the trails, following Bambi’s Run at the main entrance. Poop bags, maps, and a trash can are located on a pine tree at the parking area and near the horse paddock. ✨ PLEASE NOTE: We are specifically requesting that you do NOT come to our farm to “check us out” WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT. Please respect that Canter Woods is also our home, and we are closed to anyone who doesn’t have an appointment. For our security and the safety of our guests and their dogs, we have surveillance cameras in use at all our entrances. MEMBERS-ONLY HOURS: We reserve before-work 7:30-10:30 am, Saturday mornings until noon, and all day on Sundays for dog lovers who have chosen to be members. Members also get a lower rate that’s never subject to a price increase + free use of our wash rack and dog shampoo! (a big bonus for the big dogs in our lives!) WE ARE CLOSED ON TUESDAYS AND WEDNESDAYS 🦋

Cleanliness

100% of guests said this spot was as clean as expected during their visit.

Hazards

There is a footbridge leading to an island in the middle of one of our ponds. There is no handrail, and the boards are very soft. We do NOT recommend that you or your dog cross that bridge.

Extras

SniffMagic✨ Adventure™️$8

A dog’s nose’s best friend! Before you arrive, we’ll “hide” kibble + pb treats + liver treats throughout the central 4+ acres 🌳🌳 of our farm. Wait til you see your dogs’ delight when their noses pick up scents and they realize there’s 💎TREASURE💎 out there!! We use only the best: 💚Purina Pro Sensitive Stomach kibble plus 8 pieces each of 🧡Stewart Beef Liver Training Treats & 💜Zuke’s Mini PB Treats, measured to 1/2 cup total.

Wash that big dog outside!$7

It’s SO much easier to bathe big dogs outside! We have 2 outdoor wash stands with good drainage and hoses, rubber mats, cross-ties (basically a leash on each side of your dog’s head) and doggie shampoo available, next to the barn. Bring a towel! Thinking of becoming a member? Use of the wash stands is FREE for members 💦

Hi! I’m a piano teacher and a horse mom and a dog mom, plus I’m mom to 4 gorgeous human children and grandmom to 3! My husband Doc is retired finally from a life of near-constant travel, and I work at home. Besides our four horses, we keep busy with an exuberant 1-year-old black & white boxer-bully rescue named Bambi who is the World’s Best Dog🥇, a tiny 6-year-old chocolate-brown-pink-nosed “pocket pittie” rescue named Hazel (who feels she is the farm security guard 🚨), a lanky black & white 1-year-old Great Dane rescue puppy named Baloo who will never enforce anything ever, a severely abused 1-year-old buff & white pit bull named Manny who is the saddest dog ever and also loves everyone, and an elderly chihuahua named Lola (for whom we actually paid money) who hates all of us and wants us to know it.

Please keep in mind, there is a resident dog on site, Labrador Big Max, therefore it is crucial that you arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before your appointment, so Big Max is inside and does not come to greet you.
