55This was a great space for my 1 yo Border Collie to get some energy out. She enjoyed exploring, sniffing, and we worked on some toy play training. The host was very communicative and I appreciated the heads up that they might be returning home from school pick-up around the same time we arrived. We were a bit late, so did not run into them, but it was wonderful that Julian was thoughtful in letting me know ahead of time.
55The space was great! Plenty of room to play fetch and kick a soccer ball around.
55Great open space to let the dogs explore. Our two Danes enjoyed going in circles checking out every corner. All fencing was secure enough for our pups. They loved all the grass the chew on.
55Second time here and very glad to see the smaller fence now has wire covering the upper section! :) we will be back for sure
55Had a lovely time with our two dogs - lots of spaces to explore. Thanks for leaving water and bowls out- definitely nice as it heats up!
55Spacious yard that tired out my pup! Love that it wrapped around to give him a different landscape and layout. My dog is fairly reactive but did not have any problem with the surroundings. Will be back!
45This was our first time doing a Sniff Spot. Decided to check this one out with all the good reviews and nice pictures. I was a little nervous about what people said in regards to a section of the fence being mesh and open to the street, especially because I have such nosy dogs, but decided to give it a try. Super cute backyard, with plenty of space for them to run around and get their energy and sniffs on. They loved it, and were exhausted 30 minutes into our visit! We came on a warm spring day, so thank goodness for the big trees that offered plenty of shade. The fence was different all around, front and side was wood, part of the back and side were like wired. So my nosy dogs did bark at people they saw walk by, although that's typical for them! The mesh area mentioned before had a bench and table in front of it. So although you can see out, the dogs wouldn't be able to get through there. The host offered some dog treats, toys, water with water bowls, poop bags and trash can. Overall, fun experience for us! Wish they were closer, we drove from Antioch! But we'll be back!
55Loved this place so much! I told my husband I didn't know who has more fun, me or the dogs. Our yard is being landscaped so the dogs can't run out there right now so it was great to finally have a sniffspot close by. Very cute yard and garden, so much to explore and we have very happy dogs. Given other reviews, we walked the perimeter with our dogs to make sure they couldn't get our anywhere with "low fences". We have a mini aussie and a pitty. There was one area our mini oz could've gotten out If he tried but he was content sticking to exploring and our pitty is trained so she won't jump fences. We can't wait to go back! Thanks for the water and bowls! We didn't use treats or balls but really appreciated the thoughtfulness!
55Excellent spot provided your dog does not challenge fences. Mine do not so it was an excellent place to practice disc, plenty of shade!
55Dogs had a great time!

We can't wait to welcome you and your furry companions! 🐶🌳 Let the tail-wagging adventures begin! 🌳🐶 An update on our Sniffspot (dated 5/15/2024): We are currently renovating the interior of one of the three buildings on our lot. Our Sniffspot space and the building under renovation share the same large driveway, but the entrances/exits are totally separate from each other. The yard itself is not being touched, and crew have been asked to not enter the yard unless permission is given. The Sniffspot yard itself is large and separate from (but adjacent to) the building, and the crew isn't working every day, but because I usually prefer to give our guests total privacy, I want to disclose this for anyone interested in visiting. As our guest, you may see or hear construction going on inside one of the buildings, there may be a couple of work cars in the driveway upon your arrival. If you have any questions about the work being done, please feel free to message me before booking.
