    This was our first Sniffspot and we had a great time. It was easy to park and access the gate. Lovely yard with a nice deck for the humans at a fantastic, affordable rate. Thank you.

  • Summer W., Jan 6, 2023

    Great area to explore and to run open and freely! My puppies loved it and we will definitely be back. There is a small opening near the gate you enter in that a small dog or determined medium dog could escape from. I have both and had no problems! Thanks a ton for being a part of this!

    Mary Ann and Leo were incredibly hospitable. They came out to say hello and welcome us to their yard, which was the perfect space for my dog and her litter mate to meet. They had tons of room to run around in the fenced-in yard. Mary Ann brought out water and tennis balls for the pups too. I would highly recommend and will definitely be returning!

My husband and I are empty-nesters with a beautiful backyard for others to enjoy.
