2/22/24 UPDATE: Due to continued warm and melting weather, we will be closed until later this Spring to allow the yard to recover and reseed bare spots. A large, open 1.25 acre fenced in yard with multiple small hills that is bordered on the west side by a public walking trail (with 6 foot fence) and on the north side by Rice Creek (with 5 foot fence). During the winter months, deer and foxes pass just outside of the fenced in yard, while in warmer months the creek entices additional wildlife as well as the occasional canoeist or kayak. There's abundant street parking as we are located at a dead-end. Please do not park in the driveway. Enter the yard using the gate located to the left of the garage.

Beautiful, quiet, rustic half acre fully enclosed former horse paddock available for dogs to roam and play off leash in a safe environment. It's out in the country so off the beaten path. On rare occasion neighbor dogs can be heard barking but are never seen. The paddock is on the northern part of the property far from the road. See photos. May see horses grazing and I can be on hand to help find the spot. :) Your dog(s) will sleep well after an hour of fun romping!
Our angel pup Maia would love for furry friends young and old, big or small to sniff and run in what was her favorite place on the planet! We want to share our big and lovely yard with as many beautiful 4-legged and 2-legged creatures as possible to honor her memory!
FALL/WINTER: The dog pool and outdoor faucet are not available with the cold weather. Please bring your own water for your pup. Thanks! We LOVE dogs, as a matter of fact we have three of our own...Reggie, Pippi, and Charlie! You will definitely hear them welcoming you to our home from the front window! Don't worry about them, they can't get out, and they can't get to the back rooms of the house to disturb your time in our yard! Our yard is an "L" shape with plenty of room to run around, try the agility course, hop in the small dog pool, or lounge on the patio! I think our yard is best suited for small and medium dogs, but you can message us about that! We do have a large above ground pool (sorry, it's not available for use) that takes up part of our yard, but our dogs love to run around it over and over doing laps! It's great exercise for them! We have toys you can use, we just ask that you wipe them clean with the wipes provided before putting them back. We also have treats on hand and pooper scoopers too! All are welcome!
We love watching our dogs frolic throughout our large yard and want to share our enjoyable spot with you! Sit back in an Adirondack chair on our umbrella-shaded patio and watch your furry friends explore our fun, variety-filled back lot. From a flower patch to sniff around, to black walnut trees for chasing squirrels into, there's a lot to see and do. It's common to see chipmunks exploring the maze we built them, plus Cardinals and Chickadees enjoying our multiple feeders. A nature lover's slice of heaven, right in Mac-Grove! Park right out front of our big gray home and take the sidewalk to the north (right) of the house on back to the gate.
Fully fenced: 1 side privacy fence, 2 sides chain link, and one side with the house and gate. Place bagged poop in the small garbage bin. Please do not allow pups to dig or to enter the small separately fenced garden. Spring 2023 the yard is very tender with grass trying to recover from last year's drought, if you remember, it helps to throw "fetch" in lots of different directions to spread out the "wear and tear." Added FYI: Same day bookings will probably have the bedtime and morning 💩 from my pups since I routinely only pick up after work during warm months. If you book 24+ hours in advance I can squeeze in an extra poo pickup before work. *WINTER I pick up weekly, weather-permitting, so might not be a great spot for pups who eat poopsicles--you know who you are!
We have dog boarding in our home, very small scale, only 1-3 families board in our home at a time. Check out our Rock Creek Critter Care Facebook page for boarding info. Snow/mud/grass/amenities will change with the seasons. Please ask any questions you may have before booking as this is a new endeavor for us! The dog fence does share a fence line with the paddock for my horse and goat, please be respectful of the other critters on the yard as we do have an indoor/outdoor cat as well. Mon-Fri mornings are not available for 1st time bookings, as I am not available for a meet/greet. Please only book for a weekend or afternoon/evening if you haven't sniffed here before :) Happy Sniffing!
