Pawsome yard was our first experience with Sniffspot and we were disappointed our pups had a great play date.. we will definitely be back..
Sarge had a great time! Yard and pool are great!!
Very spacious! Grass, shade, and a pool. There is a dog that barks Nextdoor and my reactive dog was having a bark battle. This is a lovely place and I will be coming back. Bring your own poop bags because there is no pooper scooper!
This is such a beautiful and spacious yard and pool! My husky puppy had a wonderful time running around doing zoomies and playing and he even waded in the pool on the steps a bit. He’s usually afraid of water so I was glad he could get more comfortable with it! We were greeted by Michela’s mom on arrival who was extremely kind and friendly and even gave me a treat for my dog to enjoy. She had a fresh clean bowl of water ready for us and made sure we had everything we needed. She couldn’t have been any nicer and we felt so welcomed. The pool and yard were both very clean (toys in the picture of the yard were our own), and the wall around the yard is perfect for privacy if your dog is reactive and definitely high enough and sturdy enough to keep your dog from escaping. We will absolutely be returning!
The host was super kind and welcoming! They provided the dogs a bowl of fresh water and a treat each (of course after asking). The backyard is extravagant. There’s lots of options for lounging, ample room for zoomies, lots of shade, and both white concrete and turf areas (safe for paws even under the Cali sun), but the highlight for our dogs was the pool. There are two points of entry/exit with in ground steps that made it easy for the dogs to get in and out of. We had an absolute blast and would recommend this location to any dogs that live to swim, run, and play.
Michela was so kind and greeted us as we arrived and showed us around. My dog was very shy to get in the water but had so much fun when he did! Hope to return soon again! :)
Michela’s mom (Laura) was such a sweetheart and helped us with opening the gate once we arrived! The yard is spacious with enough room for me to use the chuck-it stick and ball. Pool would be a great option for swimming dogs too! Lots of seating and water provided with umbrellas for shade!
This really is a pawsome yard!
First of all, it’s HUGE!!! This is three times the size of the other sniffspot we visited.
The garden is very well kept and the landscaping is gorgeous. Plenty of sitting space and shade for humans and doggos. The pool was immaculately clean and nice and cool during this oppressive heat wave. While my puppy is still learning how to swim, she loved sitting on my lap on the first step of the pool. One thing to note is that it does get deep, I’m not sure how many feet but something to be aware of if you have kids or your dog isn’t the strongest swimmer.
Michela’s mother, Lauren, let us in and showed us around and made sure we had everything we need. She even set out a fresh bowl of cool water for Ori.
They also provide access to one of their bathrooms(!!!) and the guest room it was attached to was accessible from the backyard so I didn’t have to walk through their home and invade their privacy or feel like I was intruding.
I would describe the yard as having two areas. An artificial turf area and a concrete pool area. This made it possible for my dog to have epic zoomies and then come and cool off in the pool.
Another thing to mention is that the yard was very clean and safe. Nothing lying around like tools, children’s toys, etc. that a dog might accidentally hurt themselves on.
Michela responded to all of my messages almost immediately and was very kind and accommodating the entire time. We got there a bit late and she offered to let us stay an extra 15 minutes to make up the time.
Amazing yard, amazing hosts, Ori and I will definitely be back.
