55Truly the best day of my dog’s life. Amazing well-maintained trails, got (too excited) to see new animals, so many sniffs, and hours of play.
55Our dogs absolutely love this place. They have a look of pure joy while running around the beautifully maintained property. Your dog must be 100% off leash reliable, as this is a farm that is not fenced and plenty of opportunity to run off. There are usually some sort of animal bones, poop, etc. present. Again, it's a farm so 100% to be expected. If it has rained, there will be mud. You, your dog(s), and your car will be muddy. If you value cleanliness over your dog having the best time ever splashing around in muddy puddles, wait for a dry period. This is an amazing spot that we have visited numerous times and will continue coming back to.
55Fabulous large property with field and trails to practice off-leash recall with my young dog and give him exposure to a variety of adorable farm animals. Will be returning and adding to my favorite spots. Highly recommend this host.
55This spot is just as great as all the reviews say! So much space to run and sniff. The creek was such a hit. And she was very upset when it was time to leave as you can see. I was a bit nervous when I drove up and noticed all the cars. There is a shop at the farm which was getting a lot of visitors. All that action could really put my curious and reactive pup in a spiral. But once we got on the trails and into the field away from all of that she had no idea and had the absolute best time. Just a fair warning for others who may have been skeptical like I was at first. Well worth an hour drive to spend some time here. Thank you for sharing this lovely space. We will be back!
55We had an amazing time here! It’s huge, well-maintained, and my pups had so much fun. Farm animals were so cool to see too!
55This is a beautiful place to bring your Doggos and let them play! Very appreciative of their family farm!
55Always an amazing time! So perfect, huge space, clean, comfortable. We love it here!
55We always have a good time when we are here.
55Great spot! My dog loved exploring the trails. Thank you!
55Best place!

Description

Come and let your dog explore, play, and swim on our beautiful family farm. Our farm means the world to us and we think you will love it just as much. Our farm lies on 16 acres in Bull Valley, Illinois. Although it is not fenced in, our property is doggy heaven for dogs trained to be off-leash. Come take a walk, bring a frisbee/ball, or just come let your dog sniff and explore. Please do not go into the land beyond the caution tape and signs. That is not part of our sniff spot. We have many farm animals on our property as well. Please be respectful of our property. We take pride in our farm and love sharing it, but we want to keep it beautiful. Entry in any of the barns/buildings is prohibited. Please remain in the back of our property. We do live on the property and appreciate our privacy. FYI, this is a working farm. Sometimes as you are pulling in, there might be cars/people in the barns and lot. Please keep that in mind as you are arriving and if your dog is reactive, bring a leash until you can get into the back field.
