My dog had fun sniffing around and chasing a ball. We are having our yard seeded so this is a great option for us. Very clean and safe feeling location! We will be back.

Taylor's space is huge! My dogs had a blast from the moment they entered. My own yard is small and the sniffing options are limited, but at Taylor's, they sniffed and ran and dug and sniffed some more. They took breaks in sunny spots and then one would get the others going. Like toddlers they fell asleep in the car on the ride home. Can't wait to come back!

This is a great spot! All privacy fence, lots of space, and really great agility equipment. My friend and I have been trying to find a regular spot for a while and this will be it!

Great place. Fence is fully secured. Some dogs heard nearby but the privacy sense makes the space great for a dog to run around freely

Spacious enough for my dog to run around and tire himself out with lots of options for athletic dogs who like a fun challenge!

This was exactly what we expected! Lots of space for our dog to run and play. Our dog is reactive so thankfully there were no distractions from other dogs or people and we were very grateful for the secure 6 ft privacy fence!

I love this yard!! It was so perfect! And I have a coonhound who jumps fences, but I felt very secure with him in this space.

There was a little kitty on the patio today and my dog started barking at him/her but the owner was very prompt in removing the cat!

Great convenient private entrance and parking. Yard was large enough for a good catch and had secure fencing. It was shady in the afternoon which was lovely but bring your bugspray :)

Cute little backyard, perfect for playtime with pups. There are some bushes/plants around that mine definitely sniffed out. She leaves dog bowls and a puppy pool out if you’d like to use and there is a nice bench for the humans. There is a tree and bushes surrounding the fence for a little shade but mainly open yard.

We had a wonderful visit! Keegan was very welcoming in communications and the yard is large enough for Zita to play, explore, and generally have a great time!

Gunner and Kevin had a great time chasing each other in this backyard. It was easy to find and had a totally private entrance that you park right in front of. The swing was cute but I also brought a blanket to set up shop on the ground in the shade. We will definitely be back!

The location was easy to find and there were lots of fun smells for my dog to sniff! The owners let me know in advance that they’ve added a small quail coop, which my dog found very fascinating! I’d recommend walking the perimeter on leash if you’ve any concern about how your dog might reach to meeting some adorable small birds.

Gary’s yard was super easy to find and spacious! My pup loved running around, catching balls, and just sniffing around the yard.

If you aren’t booking with Gary you are doing it wrong! We showed up and water/chairs/towels/toys/gloves/trash bag were all waiting for us. Gary’s yard was in super great condition and super safe for dogs to sprint on. 10/10 will be returning here as much as possible!

This was our first Sniffspot and I think the dogs had a blast. They neglected all the toys I brought and chose to just run around the yard exploring. There was fresh water, bags, towels and chairs provided which were greatly appreciated. The only downside was it’s the beginning of spring and there were a lot of bees out and ants nests. Otherwise the yard was clean, the dogs had fun, and we will be back!
