Great spot! Beautiful piece of farm land with ton of space to run. When the gates close it leaves a small gap so be aware when you're heading back to your car. If anyone finds a leather leash, it's ours!
The place was remarkable.
A great spot! Lots of room to roam around, and a beautiful property! Clean and well maintained, clear instructions on how to get there.
Wonderful place for dogs to play. However, warning that there are yellow foxtails growing all over the place. It’s fine now, but once they dry, it’s very dangerous for dogs.
I can’t say enough good things about this place! I have two big reactive dogs, and unfortunately a small backyard, and to have this kind of opportunity to let them run in a safe fenced in space is just priceless. Thank you Elizabeth for providing this wonderful space❤️
Gorgeous Huge field! The pups were happy!
Love the spot! The dogs love the lil water, the lovely hills and we loved all the shade! Lovely and clean!
This spot was amazing, our dogs loved it! Will come back again :)
Beautiful, peaceful spot for a walk. We saw turkeys when we first arrived and cows on the hill on the neighboring property, but otherwise didn’t see anyone. Dogs loved sniffing around outside the barn once inside the gate. Appreciate the provision of chairs in a shady spot on a hot afternoon!
Beautiful spot! I thought my dogs had found a way out of the fence when they went down to the creek but rest assured, it was inside the fence and there’s even fencing over the pipe so they can’t go in there either. We’re from VA, visiting relatives in Candler, and it was wonderful to have such a big, quiet space where the dogs could run and play freely all to ourselves!
Absolutely gorgeous. My dog had the time of her life! If only I could post the videos of her running about!
My dogs absolutely love this spot! So much space for them to run around and perfect for reactive dogs like mine who find it difficult to get quality off leash exercise in Asheville.
Such a fun spot! My pup lOVED it!
Elizabeth is a great host and we love this property!
Had a great time here. The field is nice and big with plenty of space to run around. There is some horse poop to watch out for and the ground is a little uneven for walking, but it’s a really nice quiet spot.
Great space with lots of room to run! Big hills to tie them out. My dogs did manage to get outside the fence somewhere near the creek but it's remote and I didn't have to worry about cars. They did come back after about 10 minutes of looking. Still a great place though.
What a beautiful spot! Lots of room for pups to run and explore and nice views for humans!
This is a HUGE fenced field! It's right next to a cow pasture which for some might not be ideal but for me and my dog it was pretty neat! She's never seen an animal that big before. They didn't mind her initial barking and ignored her excited zoomies. This would be a great place to practice off leash recall with some distractions.
This spot was great for our two dogs - there was a good mixture of shade and sun and plenty of space for them to run. The land is on a bit of a hill so dogs can go out of sight but the fence is secure. There wasn’t a ton of water in the creek the day we went but I’m sure that depends on timing.
My dogs had a great time exploring!
Beautiful spot and great experience! Thank you.
This is my second time at this spot and I will go back. The land is gorgeous and the dogs have a blast exploring. There are chairs, a hammock and bug spray (nice touch!), but no water so bring your own. The listing states grass will be long and it was pretty long…ideally the grass would be a bit shorter so the dogs can run a little easier but the host is clear about this on the listing and that is appreciated.
The space is huge with varying hills/flatness, great for exploring, there’s a little water hole that my dog loved with a hammock nearby for me!
Very nice! The long grass made it harder for my girl to go full sprint, but she had a great time. Would return!
Marlo loved it!! Great area to run and nice small water hole in the back of the property he enjoyed going in as well
Awesome sniffspot! Lots of space for the doggos to get their zoomies out and a small water feature to cool off. There’s also great seating for the humans and bug spray to keep the pests at bay. I recommend bringing your own if you can so as not to deplete what’s there for those that didn’t know to bring it. There’s even a spot to get out of the rain if you get caught in a down pour. Highly recommend!!
Wide open field with beautiful views. Dogs loved running and playing in the creek. Will def. be back.
This is a beautiful place to run your dogs. My dogs had a lot to sniff! 95% fenced in area is accurate. I noticed two openings, one near the barn and on top of the hill. I appreciate that the owner was up front about this. My Feist did go through the hole by the barn because of her interest in the groundhog holes on the other side. Can’t blame her for trying.
My other dog wasn’t interested and just ran and ran. Altogether, a nice hour spent on the property.
My dogs loved this field! They would stop at the watering hole to cool off between every toss of fetch. Very well taken care of field, even had some beautiful turkey feathers everyone loved to sniff! Thank you for sharing this wonderful field!
It's a really beautiful spot with loads of space and good fencing for the dog to run around freely.
Fantastic spot. Our dogs were in heaven!
Such a great space for play!!
Beautiful spot!! So peaceful with a hugs space for running, a water hole and shady “sit” spots for humans.
Great spot! Easy to find & fully fenced!
Our favorite Sniffspot! 💛
It was so much fun!! Make sure you bring water if it’s a hot day :-)
What an extraordinary SniffSpot-- our dog has fallen in love with this land!
Great spot! 4+ acres, fully-fenced — lots of fun for my dog. Fetching, running, basking on sunshine, checking out the creek. We love it every time we visit.
Very picturesque spot!
Great open space with secure fence! Tons of land for the dogs to run around. Hadn't seen my dogs get such intense zoomies. Would totally recommend
Wonderful space - will definitely be returning!
Great spot ! Beautiful and the dogs loved it !
Beautiful property, it was raining for the first 40 minutes but we just sat underneath the barn and let the dogs play in the rain. Beautiful area with shade and sunshine! I can’t wait to visit again and an added plus that there is good cell phone reception! Saw the majestic horses across the street for a second.
Beautiful location! My dog loved the hills and getting to be free to run.
We had a wonderful time with our friends and all our dogs! It was everything we wanted for our pups to run and play in a safe and beautiful spot! We definitely will go back again!
My Drive there was pretty mountainous and it’s in the middle of nowhere which is nice! but when we got there it was a Super open field, very clean and well kept grounds, the fence kept my husky in, only one part of the fence breaks because of the creek but There was a back up fence and I just kept my pup away from there..otherwise 111000% recommend this spot! You may even see some cows!
So much space! The dogs never ran out of things to check out; we could easily have spent a few more hours there without them ever getting bored.
My lab and I had another wonderful visit to this spot! Excellent privacy and lots of room for running, fetch, and then splashing in the creek. An awesome option that’s also close to town!
This spot is absolutely gorgeous! A huge field surrounded with rolling hills, mountain views, and even a few cows. Elizabeth is a wonderful host! Will be back many more times. 💜
A beautiful spot! Easy to find and access with beautiful rolling pasture and a lovely stream!
My dog loves this spot!
This spot is incredible! My dog was OBSESSED with the creek area. He spent all three hours over there. The fencing is pretty solid and he didn't try to escape. This spot has a great view and chairs for the humans. He found some snakes, but they were just common watersnakes. Only found 1 tick on him afterwards. Highly recommend bringing your dogs out here. We will be returning!
This space was perfect for my two corgis. They did see a few cows that they barked at, but the cows didn’t seem to mind and my dogs quickly got bored. They then spent their time frolicking through the field and playing in the stream.
I’m so grateful to Elizabeth for offering space like this to give my dogs the ability to be dogs and run/roam/play.
My dogs loved every second of it.
I did find some trash- a few stray poop bags and a water bottle. I collected these and put them by the entrance gate.
For the people that use this space- please clean up after yourselves. I would hate for this space to be removed because users can’t keep it clean.
I’m forever grateful that spaces like this exist so my dogs can be safe off leash and get all their pent up energy out. This space was perfect!
We will definitely be back 🙂
Great field, has chairs and some shade spots. Beautiful setting!
This field was amazing! Really beautiful, peaceful setting and perfect for dogs. Directions to the spot were clear and easy to follow and Elizabeth was great to communicate with. There were lots of areas for dogs to explore and run and my young dog had a blast running around. We can’t wait to return!
This is a beautiful spot. The hills are great for exercising my pup. Loved being able to see horses, goats, and cows! Definitely would recommend.
First time to this spot. Such a beautiful place. A few more distractions for the dogs like chickens and goats across the road. Nice little bit deeper area on the back side for dogs to get in some water. My dogs had a blast and the hills wear them out even faster!
Always a clean and secure spot to take the pups to.
such a sweet spot! my dogs got some good zoomies in :)
An awesome visit for our pup today! Thank you for hosting us again!
Living in West Asheville, it's difficult to find a place for your dog to expend some energy. This was a perfect place to let your pup run around safely. Pretty pasture in a quiet secluded place. We loved it and will definitely be back.
The spot is fairly steep but there are chairs to sit in and its completely fenced in. The view is beautiful. We didn't have any run ins with neighbors or animals. We loved it!
Our dogs had so much fun running around and exploring the creek. The wide open field makes it easy to have a vantage point of where the dogs are playing, and it’s a beautiful, peaceful spot.
Loved this place. We will be coming back again. Thank you for having a safe and beautiful place to take our pups!!
Our dogs had a great time thank you again for letting us use your field. Just a heads up the back right corner of the fence is a little messed up, looked like a animal may have walked through it.
Our pup loved his second visit. Thank you!
Spacious, grassy, secure, fenced in area. There is an adjacent pasture that I’m not sure if animals ever occupy or not. It’s very hilly and the grass is pretty long so we lost some balls. There were also several piles of either horse or cow poop, I’m not sure. So be sure to wear the right shoes. Very pretty scenery and the dogs had a great time! There was no water station and no obvious place to discard poop bags. There are several chairs to sit in while you’re there.
It was great for my dogs! Peaceful and big enough for them to run their hearts out!
Great spot! Dogs had the best time!!
Great location, lots of space, and the fencing is complete and in great condition! Our German Shepherd loved running free. A very picturesque spot. Will definitely return. Thank you so much!
Great space! Not suitable for escape artists but amazingly beautiful and spacious. Thank you for sharing!
This place is awesome! It’s fenced fully and has a beautiful view and chairs. We did keep our Jack Russel on a 30 foot lead while we walked around and our big pup ran freely because the fence is netted fence. I think it would keep almost all dogs in, except small escape artists like our Jack. She tried(and probably could have succeeded if unleashed) to wiggle herself through the netted square.
Favorite spot! Wonderful for training.
GO, do not hesitate, absolutely loved our 1st time there. Our Dane and Weim were in heaven from moment we unhooked leash. We will be frequent visitors.
The best, most accommodating sniffspot host <3
It’s a gorgeous space! I was nervous dogs could get out; it’s hard to fully assess the fence since it’s such a huge area. If your dog love water they’ll probably head towards the creek (which is hard to access if human ;)
There are cows so my dogs were amped by that (not in a good way) so just be careful of that. Also, the little barn is accessible by a back covered area so they can get all the way inside. If there was a barrier, it would be so helpful.
The space is amazing and I’m so appreciative it’s there! The above is just caution for new folks. Thank you, Elizabeth!! Really a wonderful resource.
Such a beautiful spot to take your pups! Plenty of space to run around and there’s even a bucket of tennis balls that my dog was pleasantly surprised to find :)
Our pups had a blast at the fenced-in Sniffspot!!! First time they got to run off leash together. Unfortunately they pooped out quickly, which means we need to do this more often. We are SO glad our trainer suggested this great website!
This is a great spot! Plenty of shaded area to stay out of the sun and my pup loved to play fetch and then cool off in the creek.
Wonderful space and perfect to hang out with a view and let the pups run around!
Love taking my dog to this beautiful farm!
Our dogs had lots of fun. Grass was kind of high (we knew that would be the case), but that just added an extra level of complexity to our dogs’ fetch games. The directions were clear and we had no problem finding the place (and there are signs too!). Great morning adventure.
Great space! Fencing is a livestock type fencing mesh in most places, which was perfect for my pups but they don’t test boundaries. Lovely view of cows on the neighboring field.
My dog had a blast. Thanks for sharing your space. While we could hear dogs and roosters off in the distance this space was private and peaceful. We’ll be back.
This sniff spot had us in awe! Not only was it a fun place for the dogs, but the views were amazing and lots of shady areas available! Our dogs were so happy running free and exploring, and especially getting in the water! There was tennis balls and seating available. Such an amazing place and we can’t wait to go back!!
Location was easy to find, had a bunch of tennis balls to play fetch with. Had a couple chairs on the hill, perfect for relaxing in the shade. Overall experience was great! Would definitely recommend, will be visiting again!
By far the best space. My dog recognizes when we are driving up the road to the field and because super excited.
I only wish we had of come sooner! Such a beautiful spot for our dogs to explore and frolick in. We were able to relax in the sun (there is plenty of shade too) while the dogs played. Elizabeth is a great host and has thought of it all.
It was a beautiful wide open feild with places to sit, a hammock, and buckets of tennis balls. Our pups had a great time!
The only thing I would suggest for future visits is to make sure you keep your pups’ leashes short when entering and exiting the barn area. Coming up on the barn door, my pup had too much slack (my fault) and went to the right instead of left and ran right into some barbed wire on the adjacent feild (just a few scrapes, he’s fine.) Upon exiting, there was another super well behaved but off leash dog chilling at the exit, which upset my reactive dog but we still got to the car just fine.
Being my first sniff spot experience, the host was super responsive and it’s really a beautiful place and I can’t wait to book again and bring some more friends!
Elizabeth has an amazing piece of land for the pups. My partner and I live in an apartment and we have 3 dogs who aren’t the most social. This was honestly a blessing to have found since we can’t really go to public dog parks. Everything was clear and easy to find. We will be returning. The fence is also a great way to let the pups run freely and not be worried. There were chairs and tennis balls for the dogs on the premises. Thank you so much Elizabeth, you’re a life saver!
our dog had a blast!! we will be going back soon!!
This is a big, beatiful field with a creek perfect for a dog to get a cool drink. Tennis balls are provided as well as chairs to it in and even a hammock! A dog set on getting out of the area could probably jump over the fence, but it would keep most dogs inside safely. Parking was easy and we did see cows
Our dog was ecstatic and the setting was beautiful. We couldn’t have asked for more! Thanks a bunch.
My pup GiGi absolutely LOVED her time exploring and taking in all the different smells! It is a beautiful place for her to run and adventure. I don’t have to watch her every move or be concerned about her getting out of the boundary fence. The owner really made it accommodating for smaller breed dogs as well as large!
Great spot! Our pup had lots of fun. Looking forward to coming back on a less rainy day and bringing a picnic.
So much space!! My dog and I had an absolute blast. If your dog is an escape artist, make sure to walk around the fence line first. That being said I felt totally safe and secure with my pup there. Really clear directions to find the spot and super helpful signs to make sure you’re at the right place. We are so thrilled to have found this place and will definitely be back to play.
This is a dream field for dogs. And for the humans? You've got a view and serenity.
It looks like the perfect property, fully fenced, plenty of space, a creek... However it is hard to find! My GPS took me somewhere else in Candler, and the "Get Directions" click on the sniffspot reservation says the address does not exist when I tried it :(. Please, property owner, reach out if you will for directions and I would love to try booking again! Thank you!
Our dogs had the best time here! The view is beautiful and it is very well kept. We will definitely be coming back!
Just a beautiful place to let your dog run! So much space, beautiful farm, small creek and beautiful views all around. We had an excellent time, we will definitely be back.
