Pleasant Valley Creekside Ranch *Just a couple things to note: There is not a “hiking trail” on our property. Our spot is meant for those who are looking to have a fun safe place to swim and play as well as those who want to enjoy some or all of the amenities we provide. Additionally our creek is not shared with any public access. The strip of land across the creek which is mainly covered in overgrowth of blackberries and trees is privately owned and fully fenced. No public access is granted there. Additionally although we are in rattlesnake season and it is always good to be aware of your surroundings no matter where you go, we have not encountered any snakes on our property. Our creek as well as many other play areas on our property is used safely daily by our 2 labs, frenchie, kitty, family, friends and Sniffspot reservations*

What people say about dog water parks around Auburn, California

What an amazing adventure!I’m not sure which I love more; the property or the host! They were both fantastic. Ally is absolutely wonderful, kind and welcoming. She met me at the gate and even gave me a walkie-talkie to contact her if needed during our walk. The property is huge but I never got lost; there were enough landmarks to help me stay oriented. The property is gorgeous! There are tons of flat areas to explore but also beautiful hills to hike if you want to get your heart rate up. We explored for an hour, then had a picnic in the grass under a tree - it was beyond wonderful and my dogs were in heaven. We will be back!! Thank you Ally!

Very nice backyard and pool, plenty of space and privacy. I am very thankful that Nga was undertanding about my dogs being reactive, which I think is one of the reasons this plataform was created. It’s a bit far from Hayward but at the end I did not mind the driving, my dogs and daughters had a great time! Thanks again Nga for making your pool available 🙏🏼

Great communication and the pool was clean. Our host left us little treats for our dogs and there was plenty of room to sit. This was the first time our dogs had been in a pool and they had a great time.

We LOVE this sniff spot. It has been hot but now it is cooling off we will be able to utilize it again. The dogs go insane when we pull up. Poppy knows the spot so well she tries to jump out the window. If your dog is looking for a spot just to run run run, this is the spot.

Lovely spot with plenty of room for a satisfying sniffari. Easy access, secure property. And Poppy, the Golden greeter, is delightful!

This my first time going to a Sniffspot and I wasn’t disappointed! Having a reactive dog makes finding places to let him play off leash difficult so I’m happy to have this resource. The spot was well marked and her friendly dog greeted me with a stuffed animal when I arrived. She stayed outside the Sniffspot during our time and my dog really liked her! When she went to go do her own thing my dog kept looking around for her. Great spot, definitely recommend.

Awesome first sniffspot for our pups! The area was well landscaped and there were lots of things for the pups to enjoy (toys,treats, and water!) Lots of room for sprinting so if your pups like to RUN, a great spot. Definitely recommend and will be coming back!

What a beautiful morning and a gracious host Jeannette is! Our three dogs had the best time and are all napping now. Peaceful and secure. Already booked again!

Easy, secure access with water immediately available at the barn. The grounds are cut low with good fencing and line of sight. The pop up gives shade and, while we didn’t go into the barn, we understand that there are toys and other things available. Our pup ran, fetched and played until exhausted which is exactly what she needed. We are so grateful to have this wonderful spot to run our dog without interference from other dogs. Thank you, Jeannette! We’ll be back frequently!

Beautiful day. There is so much open space and Jeannette has taken a lot of time knocking down the tall grasses. Things are drying out, but there is plenty of shade and the dogs are happy!!

I appreciated that Jeannette came out to meet us and let us know it was ok to go in the barn for balls and treats. It was so good to see my dog have that huge space to run and explore. And the shade area was great to sit under. Thank you!

Fantastic experience. So beautiful. The amount of work Jeanette puts into the field mowing is outstanding. Thanks for all your hard work. The easy ups and wash station is super. The dog had a blast as usual. Can’t wait to come back.

Beautiful property, really open and lots of room for dogs to run and explore. We stopped here on our way to our vacation spot and wished we lived closer so we could come again. Jeannette was super nice and responded quickly when I had a question before our visit. Appreciate the little wash station set up, pool, and shade! Super nice. There are neighboring dogs, but there's enough distance and good fencing that our dogs didn't mind one bit.
