A Backyard of Beauty (and Squirrels just for fun)

We have a fully-fenced grassy backyard with slate paths winding through azaleas and fruit trees. You can sit under an umbrella on a sturdy deck and watch your dog run in total privacy. There is enough open space for throwing balls and frisbees and we have good areas for rolling, and (in summer) even a plastic play pool for cooling off. There are dogs in the neighborhood, which makes for lots of "conversation" but no contact. We have a cat but she usually gets up and sneers at your dog rather than engaging. Or she goes inside and goes to sleep. We also have a Tibetan Terrier (Atticus) who might come out to say hello but will then go back inside. The basement is an AirBnB space and the guests occasionally have a dog. They know not to bother you. If you find someone there, just explain that you are a Sniffspot client and let them know when the backyard will be free. The squirrels are smart enough to make it to a tree or fence long before they get bothered but it's a good race. We bought the house and built the yard for our Goldendoodle who passed away. Mike loved the place and your pup will too. (Recent: We've blocked all weekdays for a very nice couple of dog trainers who do puppy classes. They aren't actually around all the time, so if your dog really needs a break call 240-210-3336 and see if the time is free.)

FurBaby Freedom Park - 100% donation to rescue groups

Patio Heater now available for the winter months! And our playground chips will have a fresh covering for the 2024 season, being delivered and installed on 2nd Feb! All earnings will be donated to a couple of smaller rescue groups, including Pets With Disabilities - http://petswithdisabilities.org; Lizzy's Lodge Rescue - https://www.lizzyslodgerescue.org/. We have a very private fenced in yard, we would like to offer up to any other pups who might enjoy some freedom! Lots of availability for weekdays too. We have a natural wooded yard that borders a county park on one side, with a 6ft wooden fence all the way around the property, and a side entry gate. The ground cover is the soft playground wood chips, specifically designed to be comfortable for all kinds of furbabies! Endless amounts of smells and sniffing opportunities from all the local wildlife that frequent our yard. Good space for long runs, frisbee, tennis ball, soccer ball action for the energetic pups, and plenty of space for meandering, or just lounging around in the sun spots for the more mature pups. The yard has sunny areas and plenty of natural shade from the trees. You can also enjoy a deck with a patio table, cushioned chairs and lawn chair seating, poop bags, extra dog water bowls, outdoor spigot with hose for water bowl refills, or hose play and elevated feeders for the pups who cannot bend down very well to drink. The public park next to us has several wooded trails, so if your pup has any energy left, it is a nice park to walk. Quiet spread out and very dog friendly neighborhood. Easy parking on the street outside the house, side entry gate but please make sure you click the gate shut when you leave though!

The flower beds have been designed for local critters - birds, turtles, pollinators, etc so absolutely no killing of any bees, butterflies, spiders, turtles, snakes, birds or other wildlife you may find. It also means you will likely encounter gnats, mosquitos and possibly ticks - all great bird food but not so nice for us humans and our pups. So please be sure your pup is current on their preventatives. We do provide bug spray for you to use - just be sure to use in the lawn and not near any of the flower beds. In the summer months grass may get a little taller to help out the fireflies. If you can, take a cool pic to share - we'd love to see it.

The stream is usually shutdown in the winter months and some water remains at the end to help support the frogs overwinter. Please do not allow digging or rough play in the stream - we want to keep it in good shape for all our guests to enjoy and avoid costly repairs.

If you want a key date/time, I recommend securing it with a reservation for one dog and then updating the reservation once we have talked. Note, there are some spots at the bottom of the fence a small dog (cat size) might be able to get under - they are meant for our cats. If you are bringing a small dog, let me know and we can block the openings ahead of time. ๐—ฉ๐—˜๐—›๐—œ๐—–๐—Ÿ๐—˜ ๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐— ๐—œ๐—ง- Maximum of 2 vehicles per reservation.

I hope we answered a lot of your questions, if not feel free to send us a message. It may take 24 hours to respond but usually much faster.

I have been visiting Tracyโ€™s yard several times now and will do so in the future as well. The yard is great, always immaculately clean, and well cared for. Tracy is a pleasure to be - she cares deeply about her guests and makes certain that all their needs are met. She is friendly and warm hearted. Simply adorable like her yard. Thank you Tracy!!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! The backyard had a lot of trees and bushes for my dogs to smell. It was big enough for them to play and roam but small enough to where I could keep an eye on them. Tracy was a quick communicator and was even kind enough to bring us some water! 10/10

Tracy's spot is the best! She's got a wonderfully roomy yard for the pup to run and a nice patio and chairs for the pup's owner(s) to sit. Tracy is always so gracious and flexible, which is such a help for this mom of a baby tyrant who likes to change up our schedule at his whim. We love Tracy's!

This backyard is exactly as advertised; there were even squirrels for Silvie to chase! The trees are gorgeous, and there are lots of bushes and nooks and crannies for the dog to explore. The host was friendly and came outside to make us feel welcome and enjoyed a nice chat. We will be back:)

Beautiful yard, many places for the dogs to play and sniff. Yard is fully fenced with no gaps which we appreciated, we have terriers and they are escape artists. Relaxing deck to sit on while watching the dogs play. Very kind host.

This was a beautiful spot to bring our dog. The host came out to meet us and was very kind and welcoming, and she brought out clean water (although there is a hose on the side of the house if anyone books and they are not home). The backyard was very secure and had lots of fun areas for our pup to explore and wander through, and room to run when she wanted to play. It was also just a gorgeous area and there was a very comfortable deck for us to sit on while we were there. We will absolutely be returning!

A great large yard! We were offered tennis balls, a water dish, and puppy wipes and the owner was very helpful and friendly. The yard is big enough for larger breeds to enjoy a great game of fetch. Our pup had a great time!

FAQ about our Bethesda 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. 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 guests so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog. 97% of reviews on Sniffspot visits in the Bethesda area are 5 stars.
How do I know if a dog park works for my 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 299 fully fenced dog parks in the area. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our 57 off leash areas where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby. You can also filter locations to avoid other domestic animals and people. We also recommend reading reviews and reaching out to the host with any questions.
