Very gracious host. Great communication. Perfect spot for my two Bostons to run around and splash in the pool. Will come again!

Our visit to Michaela’s was perfect! She was very communicative and welcoming. She sent a message before I arrived to let me know what to expect, which was super helpful and makes things more comfortable prior to a first visit. There was a little welcome station set up with dog bags and treats, plenty of toys around to play with, and 2 bowls of water already set up for my pups, which I really appreciated. (Often times there’s only one bowl and of course my dogs will fight over who gets to drink water). The yard is well kept, big, and had lots of trees, shrubs, and cool little spots for them to sniff around and explore. There’s also plenty of shade which is nice for dogs like mine that overheat quickly. Highly recommend checking this spot out with your pups, I’m sure they will love it, like mind did! We’ll definitely be back :)

This was a great spot. Michaela was quick to respond with any questions we had which made things easy. We enjoyed using the grill for our Labor Day cookout and the dogs loved the space! Plenty of room for fetch for Milo and lots of things to sniff for Louise! We loved it.

This is a great mix of wooded and open space. Peak loved the open field to catch frisbee and Willow sniffed every corner of the wooded trail.

My dog and I had a wonderful time! Lots of gorgeous space to practice his recall work. I'd put him in a sit stay in the huge flat field and I'd walk way up into the woods and call him to me. So much fun! Plus, the creek was a bonus for my water loving Lab! I would've liked to have stayed another hour, but one was enough for him this time. He slept all the way home in the car and went straight to his bed once home-- Completely zonked out for hours! If your dog needs to burn out some energy, this is the spot. We'd love to come back to this awesome property soon. Thank you!

This was my first time using sniffspot and this property was great. Plenty of open areas for my puppy to play fetch and lots of woods for my older dog to sniff around and chase chipmunks. Definitely recommend!

This was my second visit! I had some pals and their dogs hang with me for my buddy Keisel’s 11th birthday. Everything was clean and as described! We will definitely be back.

Gorgeous spot! My dog loved the mud (it rained the day before) and water. The trails are perfect for getting steps in and working out a dog. We stayed towards the back where the woods are and had the pup off leash.

What a great spot for our pooch. This 7 acre lot was perfect for our dog to do what she does best, be a dog! We throughly enjoyed spending an hour in the play area, walking on the loop trail through the woods and playing in the stream without any interruptions from people or other dogs. Thanks for providing such a great place!

Beautiful yard and trails! My 2 reactive pups loved it and I had the peace of mind knowing there wasn’t going to be a dog around the corner. Can’t wait to come back!

Love the blazed trail loop through the woods! Thank you for sharing your property with us, we had a wonderful time!

There’s a large area of lawn and woods, it’s very friendly for dogs, my dog had the best birthday party there! We had six dog visit and the space is big enough for them chasing and playing with balls. People have to pay attention to their dogs if they are small size, we saw one coyote was drinking water nearby. But the coyote seems chill and relaxed, he had no interest coming to my dog even my dog was observing him across the stream. (we didn’t realize at that time, but we called back dogs immediately)

This location was perfect for letting our city pup get alllll the running in the woods. Super easy instructions as well!

My dog Lindy is very reactive to other dogs while on leash so it was nice to be able to go for a good walk on Ashley’s property without worrying about any other dogs coming around the corner. There were nice trails to walk on and an easily accessible trash can. We would definitely go for a walk there again.

We spent an hour at the 7 acre dog paradise with our four boxers and our two kids. The property provided an awesome sensory experience for our dogs to explore the trail woods and stream. Set of table, chairs and hammock were a cool touch. We appreciate the host and this property and we will certainly be back!

Had a great time on Ashley’s property with my dog. He played in the yard and ran around on the trails, then had a quick dunk in the creek to cool off! Would love to visit again.
