The best place ever for my guide dog to just play and be a dog for once. Jill is so wonderful and accommodating since I travel by paratransit and never have fixed times. The yard is wonderfully big and decked out for fall! Fresh water, bags/trash, and plenty of toys :). Thank you!

Just what we needed on a day trip to Bellingham! Clean and spacious with all the amenities. We will definitely be back in the future. Thank you so much for sharing your space! It makes bringing our dogs along possible. They don’t fare well at the dog park.

We had a great time! Perfect spot for my three dogs to run around and play fetch while we’ve been traveling on the road. Plenty of water, toys, poop bags, and clean space to run around. Will definitely come back the next time we are in town!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful yard with us! We loved playing fetch, sniffing, and taking a quick Halloween picture with your adorable backdrop. This was our first sniff spot experience, and we would love to come back!

FAQ about our Bellingham dog beaches

Are dog beaches safe?
While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks are much safer than public dog parks. With Sniffspot all bookings are private for just you and dogs you bring with you and we require all dogs to be vaccinated (or have equivalent titers). All Sniffspot locations are vetted and reviewed by park users so you can find the perfect safe place for you and your dog. 93% of reviews on Sniffspot visits are 5 stars.

How do I know if a dog beach works for my dog?
Start by applying basic filters, such as fencing and distractions, to find a dog park that works for your furry friends. If your dog doesn't respond to owner commands, you can visit one of our enclosed dog park areas. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our dog beach sites where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby. You can see any park amenities provided, including a park bench, water for dogs or water features such as kiddie pool or water hose. If your dog loves water, you can go to a park with water features, but if they don't love water, you can avoid them. We also recommend reading reviews to check for park maintenance issues and reaching out to the host with any questions. And lastly, of course, check park hours. Many of our parks are open from dawn until dusk.
What are the requirements to bring my dog to a Sniffspot park?
We require that all dogs have basic vaccinations or equivalent titers. We do not allow dogs with a bite history. We require that owners sign our waiver and agree to follow our safety rules. We also require that pet owners follow safety protocols around water features.
Will there be other dogs at the Sniffspot park at the same time as me?
No. We only allow one booking at a time and any host dogs are required to be kept away from the area during visits. So when you book a Sniffspot park you have the entire place to yourself and your dog-owning friends if you invite them. We also enforce 30 min time buffers between bookings so you will not run into other park patrons when coming or leaving.

Event organizers need to be responsible for their guests and event organizers should coordinate with the host regarding their fun party. Make sure the park has amenities you need for your party, such as a park with lots of picnic tables with park benches.
