Fenced in doggy play yard with many fun and interesting things for dogs to discover. After much research and many trips to behaviorists, I learned how important “sniff walks” are to Dogs, as that’s how they learn about the world, and ever since I’ve been taking my dog on two sniff walks separate from his normal exercise each day. Sniff walks are ones in which he gets lead, based on what smells most interesting to him, and it is made a huge difference in his happiness and lowered anxiety levels. The ability to sniff out new things and play “wild dog” tracking down “prey” is essential to a dogs happiness in my experience. A large, above ground dog pool can be set up in advance upon request and the property is Soon to include a large natural gently sloping nonslip filtered pumped dog waterfall, leading to a wading pond with a sandbank for digging. There are also lots of toys, including several automatic ball launchers and handheld ball launchers, bones, treats and human snacks on request. A 5 gallon, hot or cold primo water station with pet feature that provides instant cold freshwater for dogs into a bowl, or into disposable plastic cups with lids and straws for humans will always be full and available. Other Amenities include: human and pup refreshments and filtered running water, a working wood burning firepit, a 12x12 covered screened in freestanding patio in the middle of the play yard for human and dog use (with seating for both), an outdoor projector with screen inside the patio, bug spray for humans and dogs, paw balm, dog wipes and towels, indoor restroom access, WiFi, 8 outdoor electrical outlets and more. Please make any other requests in advance of your booking! moved into this house specifically for my dog to enjoy the yard so I hope yours does too
