Urban Oasis - Astroturf play and agility space (no muddy paws ever)

Over 4200 square feet of Astroturf play area conveniently located adjacent to the BWI airport (less than a 5 min Uber ride away). The yard is surrounded by wooden privacy fencing so your pups can focus on playing! Astroturf provides a soft, plush, clean surface so even wet dogs don’t get dirty during their stay (perfect if you’re waiting on a flight or traveling with your pup). Aluminum gazebo to protect you from the elements, and a separate covered sitting area to keep guests shaded. Space is equipped with agility equipment including an a-frame, adjustable jump, tunnel, agility stakes, and back tie. The space also has various toys, kiddie pools/dog activated water fountain/hose in the summer to keep dogs cool . There is a metal tug toy assembly in the tree, but you’ll need to bring your own toy to hook into it (we go through the toys too fast to keep replacing 😂). If coordinated in advance (and with owner supervision) you can even use the slat mill for an extra physical challenge. If you’re bringing a young puppy out please message us directly so we can put out the ball pit. The space is equipped to be used in the dark and has many solar motion activated lights along the fence, solar lights on the pergola, and a lit walkway leading up to the gate. The best travel companion is a happy/tired pet. As the weather gets nicer you may see some neighbors on your way in and may hear them while in the yard. You may also hear the normal neighborhood noises and the occasional cluck of a chicken (there are 🐓 next door; however, the privacy fence is slated, the fence is over 8ft tall, and the turf is on a hard rock pack so they aren’t super visible and they’d be EXTREMELY hard to get to). No dogs live in the yards adjacent to the fence so you rarely hear barking; however, we occasionally take in reactive board and trains. In the extremely rare case one of our houseguests barks and disturbs your peace during the visit let us know and we will make it right. On most hot days the turf gets warm in direct sunlight. Typically we will spray it down between guests if we are home. However, please check the turf intermittently and spray down as desired. The turf has an infill that causes significant evaporative cooling once its sprayed down. The small red cooler typically has water for the humans! Please help yourselves! Please no smoking 🚭 anywhere on the property. Cigarettes could damage our turf (extremely expensive to fix) and poison dogs.

A friend and I took our dogs to play together. The directions were clear, parking was easy, and Caren was welcoming and helpful. The yard is clean, spacious, and secure. It was great to have the kiddie pool. The dogs enjoyed it. There was comfortable seating, water available, and even dog treats. I would definitely recommend this space!

We have a minpin puppy (6 pounds) and the fencing was totally secure. There were no spots where she could squeeze through and escape. Lots of toys and bones for her to play with and a water bowl with access to the water hose, along with seating for us to relax while she explored. She enjoyed sniffing around and chasing butterflies. Great spot. I'd definitely come back.
