    Nice spot, clean!

    Hudson really enjoyed her swim. The host was so accommodating and the space was clean, fresh water placed in a few places for a drink, too. The hosing off area was helpful and towels were offered. Very good spot for my dog.

    Mixed review - While my dog had a good time being off leash and swimming, and Kathy was nothing but kind, here are my issues/concerns with this spot: 1) my dog came home feeling ill, eating grass and threw up. This could be because of whatever is in the pond she was swimming in. There is a color or something added to the water which Kathy says is safe for animals, but since my dog got sick, I'm not confident about the pond. On a positive note, there is a hose and place to wash the dog after the swim 2) the property is on the corner of a road where I had a concern with my dog being too close to traffic. I will be looking for other spots to take my dog going forward.

All dogs eat grass when given a chance. My listing also states that I am unfenced and I even told you that if you had any concerns about that, to keep him leashed if he did not have good recall. It appeared to me that you enjoyed your visit. You unleashed your dog and if you had any concerns, Why did you unleash him? I tried my very best to make your visit a pleasant one. With all of the concerns you had on arrival, why not just leave, I would have given you a refund.

    The place was fantastic. Kathy / Bobby had chairs set up and fresh water for our dog to enjoy while running around. The pond looked beautiful although our dog did not hop in! Will be returning soon!

    Great swim spot for dogs!! I checked with Kathy prior to booking that the pond is safe for swimming and she confirmed that it is maintained by a local company and only treated with a colorant. She was very accommodating and provided a sitting area with fresh water and a hose to rinse the dogs off after their swim. My dogs had a blast and I would definitely recommend this spot for dogs that love to swim and retrieve. It is by a road so probably best for dogs that have a good recall. We will definitely be frequenting this spot.

    We had a great time! Kathy was home to greet us and show us the property lines. My dog did lots of swimming and fetching. Great experience!

    Very nice and quiet place! Cruz had a great time! Would be helpful if there's instructions to the access and some clarification of the boundaries of the neighbors to avoid accidentally step into others' properties.

Hi, Am Kathy Olive. Am 73 years old, and I have lived here in Apex for 21 years. My Daughter also lives here with me, she moved in with me in 2019 right before COVID-19 hit and right after my husband passed away in 2018. She takes care of me, our dogs, and the house. I grew up on a farm in Sampson County. We raised cows, hogs, chickens, cotton, tobacco, corn, etc. We were poor but we sure did eat well. My Mama taught me how to can vegetables and I still do. I started this Sniffspot because it would give me a chance to meet other people and their dogs. I look forward to meeting each of my guests. My Daughter and I will try our best to make your visit to our spot a pleasant one.
