????Lauren's Private Dog Park In Reisterstown????

Hi everyone! I have a small 13 acre private farm in rural Reisterstown, Maryland. We are very secluded and offer a peaceful place to bring your furry friend for a relaxing time exploring our lush pastures and wooded trails. It’s the perfect location to get away from it all. It’s ideal for fearful dogs that need solitude. Bring your babe and enjoy! Guaranteed to have a relaxing, quiet time. I do have chickens in the back yard that will be locked up in a run during your visit. I will provide a water bowl, some dog toys, poop bags, trash can, and a couple sling chairs. You are welcome to bring a portable hammock or additional chairs, whatever makes you comfortable. Newly added shelter to stay out of the sun or rain! I only ask that you clean up after your pet and self and please put the toys back in the bucket for others to enjoy. Unfortunately, there isn’t a bathroom on-site -other than big trees that is. Access to the woods can be from around the outside of the fenced area to the left and into the trail near the bottom pasture gate. The trail dead ends at the cow fencing. Stay on the trail and you will stay on our property! You may see our puppies out from time to time but they will be kept confined in the yard around the house. I try to keep it to a minimum when guests are around though. If you see us out, come say hi if you like. We love having you! If you want privacy and peace, I got you! This is an inclusive environment 🏳️‍🌈… all are welcome!

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!

Nice and quiet backyard for the doggos and even has chairs for humans! House was easy to find and parking in the front of the house was simple.

This Sniffspot is the perfect place for any dog—room for dogs to run, room to play, shade and sun and trees, and a lovely patio for pet owners. Perfect.

I can’t think of a more perfect Sniffspot. A wonderful fenced area for the dogs to sniff, play and run, and a great patio for owners to enjoy. I have been multiple times and will continue to visit.

Tracy’s yard was so beautiful and clean! She was very communicative and our puppy had such a fun time there. Would definitely go again!

All Sniffspot locations are vetted and reviewed by guests so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog. 93% of reviews on Sniffspot visits are 5 stars. Our hiking trails tend to be outside the city, which lends to more privacy, but it is also important to follow typical hiking safety precautions, such as potentially having trail maps.
