We enjoyed letting our dog have a relaxing sniffy walk
He found some lizards to hunt
Exactly as described. We kept our high energy dog on a long lead because it would have been really easy for her to cross property lines. Strong recall/a long line is a must here! There are so many different types of places for your dog to sniff/explore. Can’t wait to come back when the grass isn’t dead!
Lots of space to roam around in. The dogs loved it and definitely tired out chasing each other in a safe space. Will definitely be coming back!
The place is spacious and both of our dogs enjoyed running in the pasture. The trail is also great to explore! There are diverse plants for dogs to sniff.
Our 3 dogs had a great time, took lunch and enjoyed walking around the area
Pretty property on the hills of Watsonville.
We had so much fun!! We had my Golden, Aussie and Chihuahua, and all three enjoyed it equally! Your dogs need to come to you on command as there is a road and adjacent private property nearby, but the owner is super open about the partial fencing in the description. This is a favorite spot for sure!!! Thank you Dawn!!😁🐾🌺
It was kinda difficult to find the location with apple maps, google maps had a better pinpoint on the location. The space was beautiful and open. About 10 minutes into our visit, a big brown dog came running towards my dog and I. We quickly ran back to my car with the dog running after us. It was not trying to attack my dog or I, but it definitely wanted us out of its space by lunging and barking at us. The host was very kind and said it was the neighbors dog.
The pasture and trails were great, my dogs really enjoyed roaming the space! This area is exactly as advertised, perfect spot to bring your pups without having to worry about any outside distractions :)
Charlie and I had an amazing time running around at this spot!!! Charlie had a smile from ear to ear! Lots of interesting smells and sticks to chew on. I will be returning soon!!!! Thank you for being great hosts!
My two dogs had an absolute blast running around and sniffing everything. They are both leash reactive and finding a spot without dogs is such a relief. We did see a horse in the pasture next to us and the fence was not secured so my dogs could have gotten to the horse if they wanted. That being said, I would recommend being careful if your dog doesn't have good recall. Otherwise, property was great! No address posted at driveway entrance, but google maps correctly directs you there. We will definitely be back!
This is a fantastic spot! A bit of a drive for me (1.5hrs) but the space was worth it. I love that you get what is basically a mini private hike experience too, on parts of the property. Google maps took me to the exact entrance, and the field is to the left after walking down the dirt driveway. The only way this spot could be better is if it was fully fenced but the host is transparent and states this very clearly multiple times in the listing. It wasn’t problematic during our visit because there is plenty of space and we stayed engaged in play. We could hear but not see other dogs, and could hear and see horses in the distance. Definitely saving as a favorite spot and will come back again as long as we are welcome. Thank you!
I am hesitant to write this review because I don’t want it to get to crowded but to be fair, this is an AWESOME spot. 6 of 5 stars. I went there for a quick preview today. We will be going back with my frisbee focused; ball focus border collies. I wasn’t concerned that it wasn’t fully fenced and it seemed quite safe. They loved it. Although you are not supposed to show up early I recommend going with 10 extra minutes AND using Google directions, not Apple. Then, when you get there there is no marker with the address so it’s pretty clear but would be great to have some confirmation you’re in the right place. I texted the host and she was quick about responding. Also, make sure you bring some water if you don’t want them to drink surface water because there’s an area they can get into standing water. It’s pretty basic, but an amazing spot. I recommend an after-play excursion to Phils seafood. We’re going back
We had an amazing time here! My dog is extremely fearful of pretty much everything you could think of and doesn’t get to enjoy the outdoors much as a result. It was so nice to have a large natural spot to explore free of stress. Apple Maps took us to the wrong place, but google maps was correct.
Finding the location with Google Maps takes you exactly at the entrance, but it took some time to figure that out because the driveway was hard to see. Make sure to take a look at the pictures the host posted, drawing out the directions from the main road. I parked in the dirt shoulder, so that I didn't have to drive up and down the dirt driveway. There is a trash bin at the beginning of the trail which is very convenient.
This Sniffspot is a lovely cut of land with diverse plant species. It feels like you're immersed in nature. Once in a while, we heard what sounded like cows mooing. A part of the trail towards the pasture is through some mud, so keep that in mind if you don't want your pups paws muddy.
There were horses at the other side of the fence where the pasture is with gaps wide enough for dogs to walk through. My dog has great recall so it wasn't a problem. If that may be a problem for you, the land is big enough with a hill and tons of trees that you can have your dog explore without seeing them.
You can hear some dogs barking a little in the distance, but it wasn't constant and was once in a while. We also saw a woman coming into the property from where the horses were, but she left us alone and went to a shed.
I booked it for another hour because of how much my dog loved exploring the tall grass and sniffing the gopher holes. He let out all his zoomies running up and down the pasture. He knocked out when I got home.
I will love to come back to this spot when I have the time.
My dogs had a good time. Was a little difficult to find.
We had a fabulous time once again! Excited to go back ☺️
A little tricky to find by street address - Apple Maps missed by about half a mile, but Google Maps finally delivered us right to the driveway. My pups had a great time chasing balls in the large pasture and traipsing through mud puddles by the creek. The only suggestion I have would be a trash receptacle of some kind to dispose of bagged dog waste. Otherwise Raleigh and Becca give this place 5 stars!
Country retreat for the pups! They loved getting to run and play and smell all the things. Very private and we even heard some roosters off in the distance. :) We will be back for sure, and next time with a picnic lunch as well!
My dogs and I had an AMAZING time this morning! This sniffspot is gorgeous, peaceful, and the hosts were very sweet! So happy to have a south county sniffspot.
