Albany, New York


Welcome to A+J’s private dog park! When you book a visit, you and your dog(s) are the only ones in the space. Playdates are welcome. Our Sniffspot is our fully fenced, backyard attached to the house, with a private entrance from the driveway. All breeds are welcome. Reactive dogs are welcome. This centrally located spot in the Capital Region will be a comfortable, safe and fun space for you and your dog(s) to play. Located in a quiet neighborhood in Guilderland (near the borders of Albany and North Bethlehem) with ample driveway space. Easy access to the backyard - you can use the private black metal side gate (pictured) to enter the backyard. You’ll find ample space for running and playing. There’s even a dedicated smaller fenced in dog area within the larger fenced in backyard (if you’d like to use that dog-friendly space as well). For the humans, there is a large covered porch, with ample seating and outlets for charging your phone. For dogs, there is a water bowl with readily accessible hose for water, toys and treats available for use while in the backyard. We have two small pups (Daschunds) of our own (Murphy and Bucky) who love their backyard but they will be inside during your visit so your pups will have the space all to themselves. Please feel free to reach out with any questions! ———— VACCINES: All visiting dogs must be up to date on all core vaccines. DISCOUNTS: Dog walkers and those with multiple dogs, message me to chat about discounts. Membership options are also available for discounted rates. REFERRALS: Enjoyed your visit? Refer a friend! Have your friend give your name when they book and we will send *you* a discount code after they visit!

If your dog is able to jump over 4 foot fences, recommend watching them near the entry gate. The backyard is fully fenced, however there is space under the back porch where your dog may want to sniff around or play.

    Host replied: Thank you! Really enjoyed meeting you and Birdie!

    The yard is a great size and very clean! The fencing is very secure except for the small gate in the front but you can pull your car close enough to mostly block it. They also offered treats, poop bags, water and a frisbee to play with! I can’t wait to bring Ellie back!

    Host replied: Thank you for your review! Very glad you had a nice visit! Hope to host you again soon!

    My dog and I really enjoyed our visit to this Sniffspot. There was ample room for her to run around, play fetch, and (of course) sniff. There were plenty of chairs for human mom to sit on; and water, treats, and poop bags available for the dogs. Everything was very clean, and as described in the listing. Would go back again.

    Host replied: Thank you for your review! Glad you and your pup enjoyed your visit! Hope to host you again soon.
