This is a great place to take your dogs. There is a lot of land for the dogs to run. The area was nice and quiet. She provided water for my girls and got to see her beautiful horses.

Excellent little farm adventure for my city pup! Huge paddock to run around in with troughs to keep the pup hydrated. Couple of steep hills to also keep it interesting and to really tire her out running up and down. Easy to find (signs to come too) secure fences. Didn’t worry about my dog getting into any other paddocks. Will go back again for sure (& will look to bring some friends too 🐾🐾)

Walter and Mowgli had a fantastic time here. Sticks to play with, a pool to jump in, grass to run through. It’s a perfect spot to take pups who might be a little more shy/reactive.

Thank you! Our dogs had an amazing time running up and down the many trails. Max fully enjoyed playing in the creek and cooling his belly off. The mud was a bonus. 🤣 Walking amongst the trees was so peaceful; our energetic dog is sleeping well tonight. 🌼 Very much worth the trip out of town. The lady welcomed us when we arrived and was incredibly gracious and friendly. The extra effort made to write our names on the sign and leaving treats for both the four & two legged guests was a speak touch. There were the cutest goats on the other side of the fence at the entrance (as an fyi - our old dog couldn’t care less, the younger one was curious), a poop bucket, baggies, hand sanitizer and fenced. Thank you so much! We will return often!

I took my anxious and reactive pup here to get some sunshine and exercise and it was perfect! Super secure, lots of toys available, very clean, parking was easy, and the best part is my dog had a great time. I will probably return soon!

Got out there right around sunset tonight- Logan had a blast, and we loved the scenery! Thanks again for letting us use your space!

Beautiful area! It has a great shaded area right outside the fenced area but not too much shade in the fenced in area. Very well taken care of and very peaceful

Beautiful location, clean surroundings, and Friendly host. My four Alaskan malamutes are reactive to anything that moves so this was a perfect spot for all of them. The swimming pool is huge and there’s plenty of room for all of them to do their zoomies, it made my fur babies very happy, mom and dad approved!

Frequently asked questions

Are public dog parks good for dogs?

It is important for dogs to have off leash exercise to sniff and run. Letting dogs off leash in city parks is dangerous and can lead to issues with Animal Control. So public dog parks are a legal way to let dogs have off leash exercise. But the free and open nature of public dog parks has drawbacks. There could be aggressive dogs, disease transmission and cleanliness issues, since any given public dog park facility may not be cleaned regularly. And other adult dog owners are often inattentive of their dogs. 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.

How do I know if a dog park works for my dog?

Dogs enjoy Sniffspot dog parks for all kinds of different reasons and goals, spanning from exercise to training or even training classes and much more. Whatever your primary goals, there is a Sniffspot dog park for you. There are many different types of spots, anything from a training yard to a field to a beautiful two-acre, fenced, off-leash park, or, for instance, a 1-acre, lighted facility. Some even have niche amenities, such as a park splash pad and dog-friendly potable water fountains.
You can filter Sniffspot dog parks by square foot size, fencing and distractions. If your dog doesn't have a good recall, you can visit one of our fully fenced dog parks. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our off leash areas where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby. You can also filter locations to avoid other domestic animals and people. Each listing also includes the park hours of operation. By reading reviews you can understand the status of condition, for example, if a section of the fence is in poor condition or there are any park maintenance issues.

Are Sniffspot dog parks safe?

While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, disease transmission and general cleanliness - often as much an issue with the person in charge as with their dog - Sniffspot dog parks are much safer than public dog parks. With Sniffspot all bookings are private where the only park users are the dog owners and dogs they bring with them. Additionally, we require all dogs to be vaccinated (or have equivalent titers). All Sniffspot locations are vetted and reviewed by guests so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog. 93% of reviews on Sniffspot visits are 5 stars and many spots have been reviewed hundreds of times. Make sure to check weather conditions before visiting.

Is a Sniffspot dog park an off leash area?

Yes. Many Sniffspot dog parks are designed to be a designated off-leash area. However, all dogs are different and we expect our guests to be safe and responsible, especially if their dogs do not have good voice control or if their dogs do not always listen to owner commands. Off leash dogs should always stay within the designated, fenced, off-leash dog area. This is important to have an enjoyable time.

Will there be other dogs at the Sniffspot dog park at the same time as me?

Sniffspot only allows one booking at a time and any host dogs are required to be kept away from the spot during visits. We also enforce 30 min time buffers between bookings.

How can I find Sniffspot dog parks near me?

You can browse all of our dog parks here. You can easily view information about the spots, including open times, park entrance details and current conditions.

How much do Sniffspot dog parks cost?

Each host sets their own price, so you can check the price on the specific Sniffspot dog park listing. Most are between $5 - $15 per dog per hour. Prices vary based on size, fencing and amenities, such as water for dogs, park benches, etc.

What are the requirements to bring my dog to a Sniffspot dog park?

We require that all dogs have basic vaccinations or equivalent titers. We require rabies vaccination, the equivalent of current rabies tags. We do not allow dogs with a bite history. We require that guests sign our waiver and agree to follow park rules and policies before visiting park sites. Adult supervision is required at all times. We do not have limits for dogs per owner or dogs per adult handler. Some hosts set person per visit limits. Dog owners are responsible for picking up pet waste (many dog parks provide pet waste stations).

How can I offer my land as a private dog park?

You can learn more about how you can earn up to $3,000 per month sharing your land here. It is just as lucrative as dog boarding or other dog services, with less work.

What are the requirements for Sniffspot dog park hosts?

Our basic requirements are that the spot be private land that is free of hazards, park clean and park waste is removed regularly. We do not allow unfenced spots that are smaller than 0.5 acres. We do not have requirements for host experience, although many hosts have experience with pet care facility services or pet boarding experience. You can learn more about our requirements here.
