The Canine Traveler

You will have 8 acres fully fenced in to roam. If you see that a date isn't available, just message me... we may have it blocked off to clean up after guests or lawn maintenance. Seating: We have a table and four chairs in the very back if you would like to have a picnic off the ground. There is a bamboo area where the table is and it is a shaded area. There are two additional chairs in the other corner of the property. At any time, you can request more seating. In addition, we have a bench inside the carport. Deck: The deck is under construction at this time so I recommend not using it until we fix. Fence: The fence is four feet on three sides and five feet on the road side. The front fence is wood slates but has a wire behind. We've never had a dog escape. But you never know with dogs! Grounds: It is a hilly and lumpy so be careful where you step. Even though it is all grass, we have mowed trails and shortcuts that should help you walk through our fields. You can drive to the back of the property if you would like but watch out for the ditches. Water: You have access to our well and a large water bowl. There should be at least one small water bowl in the carport. Feel free to use the hose located on top of the well inside of the dog pool. Dog pool can be used as well. Fireplace: We have an outdoor fireplace in the carport that you can use during colder months. Trash can and other amenities are in the cabinet inside the carport.

Every spot is very unique which is the fun part of Sniffspot. We want visitors to have clear expectations before their first visit; this is why we provide so much detail in the description. Please feel free to reach out with any additional questions, so we can ensure you have the best visit possible. Parking: Please park in the gravel driveway, not the concrete driveway. Do not park in the grass as it becomes damaged over time. If you arrive early, feel free to hang out on the swing next to the gravel driveway. Chain Link Gate Entrance: Walk down the gravel driveway to access the chain link gate entrance. Next to the man gate, there are water canteens, water bowl, dog toys, dog towels, bug spray, white bucket for trash, and dog treats majority of the time. We do our best to keep the water canteens at the entrance full with water. The only water hose to refill water canteens or rinse your dog off is at the house. There is a water hose on a reel at the front and back of the house. At the entrance, we have a solar light which only lights up the entrance. If you are comfortable being on the property past sunset, head lamps and flashlights can be provided. We will leave the outside house lights on which provides light in the back yard but not the whole property. Also, if you turn your car headlights on, the lights point directly at the field providing some light. Nature: 3 sides of the property run parallel to a creek and woods, so you might see critters (i.e. turtles, snakes, deer, raccoons, birds, crawdads, ants, etc.). Closed toe shoes are a good idea to wear. In the wooded section, there are wood chips, so they easily get caught in flip flops. Open Field: There is a large open field when you first walk through the man gate. In the field, there is a metal glider, two metal chairs, two swing chairs, and table. There is a dome climber play center for kids and a trampoline. Dogs and kids are welcome to jump on the trampoline. (Note: The trampoline has a safety net; the zipper is broken on the net.) The open field holds water after a good rain. We put straw down to help prevent mud. Woods: Towards the back of the property behind the house, there is 2.3 acres of open space with plenty of shade from the mature trees with two hammocks and a fire pit. If the field is wet, we suggest hanging out behind the house in the woods. The ground is always more dry. House: Our house is located on the property within the fenced in area. During visits, we always stay indoors with our dogs with the blinds closed to give guests their privacy. If we happen to arrive from work or errands during a visit, we park at the end of the driveway and walk through the driveway gate straight to the house. We try to message our guests ahead of time if we might arrive during visiting hours. If your dog is reactive to strangers, we certainly appreciate a message stating that, so we can plan better. Creek/Kiddie Pool: To the right of the large open field, there is another man gate that provides access to a creek. The creek is not fenced in but is on our property. The creek has a small sandy beach for digging, two lounging chairs, and a small table. Our dogs swim in the creek almost every day. We keep a long orange leash at the creek gate in case your dog wants to enjoy the creek but has selective listening skills. The leash is long enough for the dog to get in the creek while the owner stands on the bank. (Note: The previous owners buried their trash for years on the creek bed. We are in the process of cleaning it up. The section that has trash is barricaded off with black netting, so dogs can't access the area with glass, metal, etc.) We understand some people don't want their dogs swimming in the creek. We have a kiddie pool, 30 gal black plastic stock tank, and splash pad available during warmer months. The water hose is on a hose reel at the back of the house. Feel free to fill it up with water for your dogs to cool off. Neighbors: We have neighbors that have indoor dogs. Our fences do not touch at all. However, when their dogs are outside in their fenced in back yard, they can see visitors at the main entrance. The neighbor's dogs will bark out of excitement when they see visitors. If you walk back further on the property, they can't see you and won't bark. If your dogs are reactive to the sight or sound of other dogs, this spot might not be the best fit for your dogs. Lastly, we have a neighbor across the creek and through the woods with a rooster. The rooster can't be seen but can be heard at times.

What people say about dog fields around Bostic, North Carolina

The owner, Lori, met us at the gate and introduced the sniff spot to us. Very friendly and accommodating ( water bowl and bottles available + milk bone treats and sticks). Property is huge and fenced. Hosts informed us that they have horses in the back portion of the property. They are planning to put up a horse corral. The trails on the property connects the front to the back portion so we took a peak at it and saw the horses but kept our dog on a long leash because we are still getting her used to wildlife and farm animals. We hope to explore more of the property next time! Overall our pup really enjoyed her time there !

Lori, the host, met me at the gate. We parked and talked for a few minutes and she discussed the property. I was the first visitor and her and her husband were finishing walking the primary part of the property and fixing the tops of the fences (I was aware of this and they weren’t able to do so earlier in the morning due to rain) where deer have beaten it down. But fencing was secure overall. Horse poop is around which provided a disgusting but tasty treat for my dog to eat and roll around in. She advised there’s some trail area in the woods that they hadn’t really checked the fencing on yet and recommended leashing there. We walked through the trails and ended up where the horses are. The horses were very interested in my pup and followed us back through the trails back to the primary pasture (I do not personally like horses so I was not a fan). The horses were nice I am just scared of them lol. Lori said the next time she would put them in a corral at my request! My hour was almost coming to an end anyway so I just chatted with Lori and her husband for a bit. Lori also provided a dog bowl and water for pup and humans, milkbones, sticks and toys if my dog were interested. Other animals are visible but generally keep their distance! Lori also told me she plans to put in some kiddie pools for dogs as the weather warms up more. Overall fun experience! Will be back again very soon.

We have 3 rescue dogs one is reactive and we have been training them. This was such a great experience we got to play on agility stuff and explore and it really opened them up and built confidence. They didn't even bark at the dog and owner walking into the grooming shop! Will be back again

This was a great spot to visit! The owners were friendly and gave us plenty of privacy during our stay. There's a lot of space to walk and a nice fenced-in area that's perfect for fetch or training.

The dogs had a great time getting to run around and do some training away from home. Super easy to find, and an absolutely gorgeous property which is easy to find. The fields are flat and well kept. The trees provide a good amount of shade for when you're watching the dogs.

Both of our pups had a blast here. The sticks, toys, and treats were a really nice touch! The fence was perfect in keeping them contained so we didn’t have any worries about them getting out.

Great spot and the host is so nice! My dogs did not even make it the full hour they were so tired. We will definitely visit again!

The fenced in area is the perfect size for my two pups. They have plenty of room to run around. Although my dogs didn’t care for the water today the pool and splash pad are so great for these hot days. We’ll be back! :)

Everything was great. Loved the grassy neat area for our dog to run around in….and me as well. Didn’t have to be concerned with dodging doggie “mines”. The chairs were comfortable, the available water and toys, etc. were very thoughtful and we enjoyed the shady place to sit and the lovely scent from the surrounding trees that are in bloom while our GSD explored. The only thing I would mention is that the fenced in area is really only a 1/4 acre as opposed to a half acre. I’m assuming the other part of the yard that isn’t fenced makes up the other 1/4 acre. If that was stated I overlooked it. Thanks! Holly and Jim

We had an absolute blast!! It was great to have a safe and large environment for our dogs to run free. It was also nice to have the ability to fence off some of their property.

We enjoyed our visit to this sniffspot. My dog loved the room to roam. It was the first time in such a large area, so I was able to see that he checked in quite a lot with me and practiced our recall a couple of times. Great info to have. It is a very nice space, well kept, and all the amenities we needed!
