My dogs had so much fun! There’s enough space for them to run around and tire themselves out! The yard was beautiful and clean and safe!

This was our first Sniffspot experience and our rescue dog, Ruthie's, first time off leash outside since we adopted her a year ago. Ingram's Private Dog Park was just as posted. The host, Elizabeth, kept us in the loop regarding parking, accessing property, etc. We felt secure letting Ruthie off leash in the yard, fencing was good. Lovely back yard with shady spots for our shade-loving girl and lots for our hound dog to sniff. Big bowl of fresh water was much appreciated. Very clean and well maintained, and host, Elizabeth, was very pleasant and accommodating. Would do this again. Ruthie had fun 🐶🐶🐶

Such a nice yard! Very safe for my dogs, had lots of smells and different types of landscaping for them to explore - bushes, trees, rock and wood piles, etc. They enjoyed standing on the raised deck to look out over the yard and fences too. Lots of room to play as well. We’ll hopefully be back soon!

FAQ about our Akron 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.
