Private Pond Pooch Paradise

Our property sits 1200+ feet off of the main road and is a total of 28 acres. There are neighboring properties that are 50 acres and 80 acres so no close homes in most directions. We are located approximately 1 mile from West Branch State Park. The property has a clean swimming pond, a walkable forest area with some established trails that are currently covered with leaves. We are a working farm with about 8 acres of crops. There is a large 3 acre wheat field in the front great for ball throwing. The remaining non crop acres are walking paths with some cut grass and yard. We do not have any livestock but our neighbors have cows. There is a secure fence on one side of our property that keeps the cows in their pasture. They’ve never visited us! Neighboring properties are also farms with over 100 acres of open land, woods and crops surrounding our property with no main or visible roads. You can see houses on one side of the property and that’s where the cows live! They have dogs but they’ve never visited us. We do have 2 well behaved German Shorthaired Pointers named River and Remmy who run freely on the property. However we will keep them inside when guests use the property. We have a bench to sit on in a shaded area around the pond for relaxing. The woods are beautiful to walk about as well. There is a large rock in the woods to take a rest on with an amazing ravine creek view. Our property is large and not fenced so dogs with impeccable recall should enjoy the freedom to play, run, swim, sniff and explore. Leashed walks are also welcome. Long leads can also be used. Because we are so far off of any main roads you will feel comfortable here! Your pups are welcome to swim in the pond during your visit. During recent rains our property stays mainly dry and the woods are relatively dry as well as there are many leaves covering the ground. In the winter when the ground is frozen it’s a beautiful walk.

Our first time using Sniffspot and we really enjoyed it! So much room to run! Our dog never gets to go off leash so this was a real treat for her. Lots of toys available and an auto fill water bowl in the shade. Great fencing! Very sturdy, tall and secure. Abby's tail never stopped wagging - she was so happy getting to run at full speed! She took advantage of the shade when she needed a rest. This was a great experience. Thank you so much!

LOVE. Very secure fence with Lisa of space. Automatic fill water bowl for the babies! Lots of toys all over and even with the rain, it wasn't very muddy at all. We will definitely be returning!

This is now my third visit to this location, and I honestly don't know if I'll have a need to go anywhere else! Such a great and open place to have my crazy kids go nuts!

This spot is PERFECT! the yard is very clean and well kept, toys galore, extras such as poop bags, sanitizer, scooper, sprinkler, well filled pool, water for my daughter and I. We absolutely will be back soon! I messaged her to ask a few questions prior to reserving, not only was she prompt to reply she also moved things around to accommodate the time I was available to come with my 4 furbabies. I am handicapped and had no problems getting in or around the area. 10 stars!!

Perfect spot for the dogs to explore and romp around mid-road trip! Privacy fence was great - felt like our own little world! Water + toys for the dogs is also much appreciated. Will definitely book again if we're passing through :)

Nice big yard. The enclosure was excellent and I was never concerned about my boy “escaping”. The host had toys and water out. Exceeded my expectations and I look forward to visiting again.

Sarah has a big, beautiful fully fenced yard! Fortunately she’s willing to share. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and appreciated her add-on offerings. Traveling with a high energy pup can be tough, but the agility course helped me wear my guy out! Sarah is great with communication too.

Another wonderful visit! Abby loves to splash in the pond and chase frisbees on the large fenced in grounds. The scenery is beautiful and we love seeing the farm animals. Thanks again for a great place to let our dog play!

We had a blast here. There’s lots of room for the dogs to run and explore. Only thing is the lake is pretty stagnant, so expect stinky puppies if they’re going for a swim.

We had a wonderful time! The area was large and clean. My dogs were a bit more curious then I thought about the water (just close enough to get muddy, but paws only), so I wished I had brought more towels but otherwise this was great! Definitely will go back.

One of my favorite places ever! A pond for my girl to swim in & plenty of room for them to run. Plus adorable farm animals in the distance to admire ♥️

FAQ about our Canton dog parks

Are dog parks good for dogs?
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.

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.
