What people say about dog parks around Buffalo, New York
Madeleine’s yard is peaceful and shady, just the right size for my boxer to run around a little and lie in the grass.
She provided water, (for dog and human) a new tennis ball and poop bags. Table and chairs. There were plenty of toys to play with, although my dog isn’t interested in toys. There are 2 little dogs behind a privacy fence that barked at first, but not for long. It was very quiet from neighbors. Madeleine was easy to communicate with and came out to say hi. It was a pleasant morning to sit and watch my dog enjoy the yard! We will be back!
Beautiful, serene & clean property. I went on a full Sun, hot day. Fortunately, this property has some shaded areas to stay cool. I brought my own water but They had a bowl of water out as well, Which was nice. Just bring a lawn chair or blanket if you are not a grass sitter. We are, so it was fine. It
Was so nice to remove his collar and leash and let him run free😃Thanks again for sharing your backyard 💕🐾🐾
Yard was very spacious and the fences were sturdy! My dog had a blast running around and sniffing all the scents. Backyard was easy to access and get in to. Will come again soon!
We enjoyed taking our dogs to this sniff spot. The yard was clean and picked up. Our dogs had a great time running around the yard. One of our dogs is very reactive and she did very well in the yard. We will come back!
Fully fenced in beautiful yard. My labrador puppy had a great time in this large yard. It was well kept up. We saw a dog peek out from a doggie door in the yard & the neighbors dog was out for a moment barking which our friendly dog loved both things. Otherwise completely quiet yard.
We live in an apartment and are grateful for quick, easy booking to let our puppy run around for a bit. Thanks for a great wide open space and safe space for our dog!
Very friendly host, this location has a spacious fenced in backyard with plenty of space for your pups to run.
Great spot for fetching - my pup had a great time and was able to get up to his full speed!
Great space! So much room to run and play! The fences are great and my dog's loved the kiddie pool! Easy access. Can't wait to bring them back!
It was a huge yard with a private entrance!! It was very clean and beautiful!! There was a place to sit as well !! Thank you for opening up your yard to other puppers !! Would def recommend and I will def come back !!
This Sniffspot was GREAT! I am visiting Buffalo with my rescue pup, and she’s not used to the commotion and sounds of the city. This was the perfect quiet retreat for her to run around and get some energy out! Her favorite things about this spot were the BIG stick in the box of goodies, and the kiddie pools to splash around in! 10/10 for sure!! 🐶❤️
Theo had the best time playing fetch and frolicking off-leash in the huge yard. He really enjoyed splashing in the pools as well! We will definitely be back again.
Huge, fully fenced in yard! There were toys out for dogs to play with and kiddie pools ready to go! Water was already freshly poured into bowls. Hand sanitizer also out & available. Great spot, would def recommend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This place was so amazing, huge backyard and play area. My dog absolutely loved it. It was his birthday and he had the best time running around and playing fetch. I will def book again. 😍☺️

Great yard and awesome host! Erin went above and beyond to make sure that we felt welcomed and were taken care of on our visit. Our dog had a great time and we will certainly be back!
I can’t say enough good things about this spot! Clean and spacious yard for dogs! I couldn’t even stay the full hour, my dogs were so tired from playing. The owner was so nice!! Will definitely be coming back!
My dog loved running around here and appreciated the toys and water provided by the host. It was a bit muddy but after all the rain the past few weeks, that was to be expected! We will definitely visit again!
Thank you for providing a safe space where my dog can run around and explore. We enjoyed the yard! Thanks for the towels, water, and toys, Rocky enjoyed trying new ones. Also communication with Erin was great! We will come again!
Perfect spot for play. My dog had a great time.
The yard was very clean and we had a great time! We will definitely be back. Thank you!!
What other types of private dog parks are available?
Dog water parks
Many hosts have added water features like pools and/or are nearby lakes or rivers.
It is important for dogs to have off leash exercise to sniff and run. But the free and open nature of public dog parks has drawbacks. There could be aggressive dogs, disease transmission and cleanliness issues. For this reason, many dog behaviorists discourage visiting public dog parks and recommend Sniffspot's private dog parks. Sniffspot private dog parks only allow one guest to book at a time and are not open to the public, which solves many of these issues.
Are dog parks safe?
While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks much safer than public dog parks. With Sniffspot 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. 0% of reviews on Sniffspot visits in the Buffalo area are 5 stars.
How do I know if a dog park works for my dog?
You can filter Sniffspot dog parks by fencing and distractions. If your dog doesn't have good recall, you can visit one of our 45 fully fenced dog parks in the area. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our 14 off leash areas where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby. You can also filter locations to avoid other domestic animals and people. We also recommend reading reviews and reaching out to the host with any questions.
