The cutest back yard ever! There was fun agility equipment, a little pool, and so many toys to choose from. There were sign everywhere explaining what everything was and even a cute picture place! My pup had a great time running around and even found a new favorite toy (one of the cool discs) that I’ll have to buy her!

Dogs had fun. Having a little pool in the heat is so important. Toys and water bowl were out. There is under the patio access which was a little challenging with one of my dogs. He liked it though!

FAQ about our Bloomington dog hiking trails

Are dog hiking trails safe?
While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, inattentive owners, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks are much safer than a city or county park. With a Sniffspot off-leash area 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. 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.
