25There’s thorns everywhere and not really a open spot to play in, more of a narrow looped path, which was disappointing. There were repeated (hopefully BB) gun shots heard in the background fairly close, and the water bowls were not the cleanest, but that’s not the worst thing.
55Perfect place for my dogs to romp around.
55Fencing was fine for our dogs. Nice wooded area to explore.
55This is a great new spot, not very big but a nice little loop in the woods to run my big dogs around. We went in the pouring rain so we got muddy. There are poop bags and some toys available. I will definitely return
45The space is beautiful! I took my medium size dogs and one of them realized immediately that she could slip under the soft plastic fencing and it gave me a scare so we didn’t stay too long. Would be a really wonderful spot for anyone whose dogs don’t need sturdy fencing
55Such a cool spot! One big trail circle. My dogs had lots of fun exploring. A nice break from playing fetch.
35It was our first ever SniffSpot. This location was not very big. We found it to be well fenced for our dog, who wasn’t at all interested in escaping, but he explored the entire space within 15-20 minutes and we were ready to go in 30. It was really shaded so would be a good on a hot day and we really love the concept to allow our dog off leash time in a very safe and controlled environment but we will be exploring other options next time.
45Like several other people said, I kinda expected it to be bigger but it still was a lovely spot. Clean and no mud!! The wood chips made it super easy to pick up poop. My biggest critique is that some of the fencing is loose and my guy tried to squeeze under the fence and the gate (cuz he’s a turd that wanted to play with their dog). Thankfully he’s a 95lbs golden and didn’t fit. On that note, their dog came up to the fence for a bit at one point and was very calm and totally fine with my dog who is only reactive to other intact males, but I know some people have more reactive dogs so keep that in mind! Overall it was a good experience and I would be happy to come back.
55Will book again.
45Overall, this is a peaceful spot and would be a great stop off the freeway for a play break. The entrance route is well marked; the shelter would be welcome on a rainy day; and despite it being set back in the woods, it's open enough for me to feel safe by myself. The fenced space felt smaller than I expected (walking and sniffing, we covered all the trails in less than 5 minutes). The plastic construction netting is a bit loose at the top and would not have stopped my medium-sized dog if she had seen a squirrel or rabbit, but fortunately, there was no wildlife present at the time we visited (late afternoon). Note that there are also some places at the edges of the shelter where a small to medium-sized dog could push through/under. The trails are indeed rough, as noted in the listing, with large wood chips and lots of blackberry bushes and thorns. While this spot wasn't my individual dog's cup of tea, it's great to have a new Sniffspot in this area of the county, and I'm sure a lot of dogs (and their people) will enjoy spending time here.

    Host replied: We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your visit. As described (in the description of the property) it is a wooded area with sticks thorns and other possible pieces of nature that exist in a wooded area. The two noises you heard were the neighbor and were not gunfire of any kind.
