55Another amazing Time this is our third visit every time it gets better and better… a sign was added for parking and so was a bench and trash can. Shane is awesome to communicate with he lets me know when campers aren’t there and we are able to walk the whole place I love that the location is flat hardly any holes it’s really and ideal location to get your long line out stroll and do some training our pup is reactive so we stay clear of the other animals who are in a fenced area and although it’s near a road little traffic and again our dog is always leashed he can’t be trusted but the location is amazing and will keep coming back for those nice walks
55Quiet and unique spot. If you are looking for a spot that is semi shady and no hills this place is it. My little terrier found an endless number of holes of various sizes in the ground to check for vermin. They must be gone because she did not go crazy digging after anything. In a month or two this place is going to be covered in squirrels and birds to chase. The ground is hard packed dirt and good to walk on. If there is several days of heavy rain, a low rider like a Corgi will definitely get dirty. Other than that unless your dog likes to roll on the ground it’s not an overly dirty spot. My dog has terrible recall so she stayed on leash the entire time. I brought just a long line but it got caught up on branches and twigs on the ground. My bad, I’ve never been to a hazelnut orchard before. I will bring a 20’ retractable leash next time and it should work great. There is a road on one end of the property where the cars go upwards of 35 mph. If your dog chases cars this could be a problem for you. We saw two horses in an adjacent field, if your dog chases horses there is not a fence to keep them separate but the horses didn’t seem to care about us being in their vicinity at all. Overall this place is quiet, clean and walking up and down the rows is very relaxing. We will come back here often and can’t wait for when the squirrels are out.
55Beautiful spot. If those old trees could talk. Lots to sniff. My only issue is dogs should have impeccable recall as there is only one fence toward the road. Mine don’t.
15I really wanted to like this spot! We drove all the way out from Portland with high hopes but unfortunately they were almost immediately dashed and we had to leave less than 20 minutes after entry. I’m very used to partial fencing but that’s a generous way to describe it—this is basically unfenced because of the large gaps in the white picket fence and the lack of fencing along the roads to the side. You’ve got a busy 45-55mph road to your back, a farmhouse with a ‘friendly dog you can shoo inside’ (read: hazard for reactive dogs) to your left, a bunch of campers with possible dogs to your right, and a horse who clearly hates dogs to your front. It’s five acres (??) so there is room in the middle to walk up and down but you’re essentially trapped there if you bring multiple dogs like we did, even with the best recall. We were on edge the entire time and did not find it ‘tranquil’, unfortunately, thanks to the traffic noise, cars going up and down private roads to the left and right, and the dog barking in the farmhouse. There’s also no water, toys, chairs, shade structure or poop disposal on site. Ultimately we did not enjoy this as a Sunday experience and will not be back until and unless the host updates the amenities and fencing (with signage!).
55The name says it all ! Very relaxing lovely area … so this place is not for off leash unless you have an amazing recall … with that said this is a perfect place to bust out that long line practice recall, walking stay ect. This location is awesome for training but also a safe spot to walk and sniff I am sure this will be a hot spot as the days start early and end later it would be nice for seating but really who wants to sit w all those lovely rows of trees. Shane was great and responded quickly I will be returning !
55It was so nice to just walk and relax. The dawg Ollie didn't want to leave. I brought the directions, but forgot the rules. They were friendly about it. Next time I need to bring water for the dog.
55Amazing, beautiful, idyllic property! Please keep in mind that unless your dog has reliable recall a long leash should be used as there isn’t all over fencing. 😁

Description

Working Filbert Orchard also known as hazelnuts. This 5 acres of trees is a unique place to explore or wander through Orchard rows. The property is 28 acres total, which you are welcome to explore, but the 5 acres south of the driveway (left as you enter) is exclusively for Sniffspot. The floor is very level, with some mouse and gopher holes, and is beautiful in the spring and summer. You are welcome to bring camp chairs, a propane fireplace, and hang out. Free throwing sticks are everywhere! Puppy play-dates and birthday parties welcome. We have Hipcampers on the property North (right) of the driveway. At the end of the driveway, we have hammocks available for the campers and you are welcome to snag one during your visit and relax. Return the hammock when you depart. Enjoy your experience and let us know if we can help with anything. Cheers

Hello I am Mookie, a Golden Doodle who loves to play ball and my Human is Grace. She got me this place with a long yard, perfect for playing with a chuck it! I begged for a pug and she let me have Frankie. We are happy to share our yards which have different areas for different Dog needs. Human needs can be taken care of too. We are starting out, but expect to make it a lot more fun as the weather improves. Frankie and I will not be coming out to visit your dogs, but once you leave we will enjoy learning about them on our scent hunt. We believe this will create a lot of interest and fun for us and for your special family members too. We now have a place for your humans to wash you when you leave the sniffspot area. It is currently set up with kiddie pool, shower head and hose, with lavender wipes as well. Hand sanitizer now available for humans to use. In the summer, there will be lots of water and hoses available for getting water and there will be bowls too! This is a place for fun , everything is not perfect yet, but the yard is a lot of fun for Frankie and also for me! We love to explore and sometimes we see deer here and other wild animals! UPDATE: All fences are secure. IF for some reason your dog slips out the farm gate entrance to the sniff spot, the entire property is fenced, and your dog will not get out. There is a shade canopy which will protect from the rain and some chairs to relax in. You may encounter holes because dogs love to dig in the soft turf and the hill of dirt, please let me know if you find some that I have not gotten filled between visits and I will fix that! With so many trees, there will be branches down. I find that the dogs love to pick through those sticks. I try to keep on top of the really big ones, but if you see any let me know. PLEASE NOTE: If your ball or other toys go over the fence, they now belong to my neighbor! PLEASE You must not go over the fence to get them!! I have other balls and will be happy for you to use them while here, if they go over, I can deal with him later! Thank you for your consideration of my neighbors. Please take pictures of your beautiful happy dogs and share here! Let's make other dogs and humans know there is a safe place to play! Thank you and we look forward to making dogs happy so that they can live their best lives! Additional note. WE have two safe yards (Never booked at the same time) completely fenced. The entry is also securely fenced. Your action of closing the gate upon entry and exit keep all dogs safe. Thank you all for your consideration! Come VIsit us at Mookie's Magic Meadows for a Magically fun time!
