Bell's Dog Run In Kawkawlin

With just over 5,500 sq feet of fenced in area your dog will have plenty of room to run! We have many dog toys, a kiddie pool, agility equipment, sand area (for those who like to dig) and more! We are constantly adding new things and updating the area. We have chairs in the shade for you to sit back in and watch your dog! Please do not leave your dog unattended, let your dog jump on the fence or dig along the fence (digging is only permitted in the sand) and please clean up after your pet. We hope you enjoy our little pet area 😊 The kiddie pool is out weather permitting. We try to empty it after easy booking but if we are not home or if we have multiple bookings back to back we may not have time...we have found the dogs don't care if the water is fresh or not ;) We have a seasonal photo shoot area in the back corner. Please do not let your dog(s) mess with the display. We want all guest to be able to enjoy this spot. You may take all the photos you want we just ask you to watch your dog so they are not destroying it and to share the photos with our page :) We do not charge for using the photo area unless you want to be in the photo and need us to come out and take a photo for you. We do run a small boarding and training business on our property. If we have dogs at the time of your visit you will not see them. If they hear you and your dog they may bark so you may hear them but they will never be out of the building while you are here. We never have more than 4 dogs at a time but they are located in the building attached to the fenced in area. If this is a concern you may reach out to me via messenger to see if we have any clients during the time you want to book. We have many days/times when we do not have anyone here.

FAQ about our Bay City dog parks

Are dog parks good for dogs?
It is important for dogs to have off leash exercise to sniff and run. But the free and open nature of public dog parks has drawbacks. There could be aggressive dogs, disease transmission and cleanliness issues. For this reason, many dog behaviorists discourage visiting public dog parks and recommend Sniffspot's private dog parks. Sniffspot private dog parks only allow one guest to book at a time and are not open to the public, which solves many of these issues.
Are dog parks safe?
While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks much safer than public dog parks.

All Sniffspot locations are vetted and reviewed by guests so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog.

You can filter Sniffspot dog parks by fencing and distractions. If your dog doesn't have good recall, you can visit one of our 25 fully fenced dog parks in the area.
