We had a great first visit at this spot! Lilah loved exploring the yard and playing in the snow! We will definitely be back again! Thanks for opening up your space!

Phenomal time for my girls to run around and play. Provided doggie bags and tennis balls (however I’ll have to replace two as they were lost in the deep snow haha!) Great environment to become accustomed to new areas both on and off leash. Will recommend to all furry friends! Thank you so much! We will return without a doubt!

We had so much fun playing in the snow today. After 2 days of extreme cold the dogs were able to get all their energy out, and I was able to relax with my pups. Thank you so much for this spot. It’s close to home and a great break. Love the baby gate at the entrance, I use them at home too! Next time I come I believe I will get a membership! PS I hope the branches were part of the accessories! Bjorn didn’t let it go!

The hosts were very friendly and helpful, and the property was great! They even made sure some paths were clear of snow despite a bunch of snow having just fallen. Our pup enjoyed the large and secure space to play fetch! We even accidentally threw a toy up on the shed roof and the host was kind enough to help us retrieve it. Will definitely be visiting again - thanks Clark and Ryan!

Great spot for Archie to run around with a friend. Nothing fancy but a nice big open space to run around and play fetch

Exactly as advertised, easy to find, easy parking, nice open space. My only issue, which is my own personal issue, is that I have a fearful dog - and I was not expecting there to be dogs surrounding the yard. Now that I know, I will be more prepared with high value treats! Thanks for hosting me and my pup, all in all - a good time.

A very nice spot. Some balls and toys are provided which certainly was appreciated. A waste bin is also available to use. My only issue was the gate to get in/out was not fixed to anything, it was just wedged in between the space and would be easy to knock out of place. It was also low, but I have a Great Dane so that might not be a problem for certain dogs.

Very welcoming hosts, The Barkyard is extremely large! Our golden retriever only lasted 30 minutes before he was tuckered out! Highly recommend this spot, our dog was super happy !

Our dogs had a blast! The tennis ball launcher was a winner! Gate was a little flimsy, but would only be a problem for escape artists. We will come back after the thaw!

Great spot. Was visiting Ottawa/Gatineau and brought friends dogs for some enrichment. Secure spot with plenty of room to run around. There were a few mushrooms around the bushes along the back fence line, but these pups knew better and listened when I said “leave it.” It’s most definitely a spot I will come back to. As I make the drive from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to the Ottawa/Gatineau area monthly. (To see the dogs, of course!)

The yard is super nice and huge! The fence tall which is nice and secure enough for any size dog. This yard would be amazing for a dog who doesn’t mind potentially seeing other dogs. The fence is a chain link (as you can see on the pics) so if the neighbours have dogs and go outside, your pup would be able to see and interact with them through the fence. The owners have two beautiful Aussies that were hanging out in front of the glass sliding door, but I am sure you could arrange with the owner to have them away from sight while you are there. Like I said, this would be a great spot for a friendly dog who might just need a secure place to run around.

My dog and his 3 friends had an awesome time. Very spacious backyard that was easy to access and the agility equipment is an added bonus! The neighbours have two small dogs that were out for a bit and barking on the other side of the fence.

Has everything you need! There are some chairs to sit, garbage bin etc. The fences are secure and high, but if you have a reactive dog it is at a busy intersection where they will see humans and/or dogs walking by. It’s perfect for us and we’ll be back.

We don’t have a big enough yard for our energetic dog and we’re happy to have found Kenzie’s place close to ours! The yard is as described, very secure and clean. We also loved the privacy. Our dog went home tired and happy! Will definitely come back for another visit!

This is such a good spot to go have some off leash time in! Clean, enough space to run around and throw a ball, and even a clean water dish all filled and ready to go. We’ll be back!

Nice space for my dogs to run and play fetch! They loved cooling down in the doggy pool. Had shady spots to rest and a place for humans to sit!

My dogs had an amazing time! The yard is very clean and spacious enough for my 2 large dogs to be able to run around and play. It is easy to find and the instructions were clear. My dogs loved the mini pool the owner left out for us, and definitely appreciated the water bowl! (The neighbours small dog barked for about 10 minutes when it heard my dogs and I playing. You cannot see the dog, so my dog was not effected by this.) Thank you for opening up your beautiful yard to us! Two tired, happy dogs after the visit!

FAQ about our Ottawa dog parks

Are dog parks good for dogs?
It is important for dogs to have off leash exercise to sniff and run. But the free and open nature of public dog parks has drawbacks. There could be aggressive dogs, disease transmission and cleanliness issues. For this reason, many dog behaviorists discourage visiting public dog parks and recommend Sniffspot's private dog parks. Sniffspot private dog parks only allow one guest to book at a time and are not open to the public, which solves many of these issues.

You can filter Sniffspot dog parks by fencing and distractions. If your dog doesn't have good recall, you can visit one of our 10 fully fenced dog parks in the area.
