Great Sniffspot! Ginormous yard with varying textures and elements. It provided lots of mental stimulation for my pup on her birthday. We went on a humid, damp morning so I regretted not bringing the bug spray but overall we had a wonderful time!

Great spot! The backyard has so much room for running and lots of smells. Easy access to water and bowls and lots of toys. There weren't any baggies, but there was a scooper to use. Will be going back!

I was very happy with Sabrina's Sniffspot. Getting to the Spot was easy and close to the Interstate. There is a lot of room for a Dog to run which is important for all Dogs but for a high energy Dog like mine it is even more important. The fencing around the spot is good and strong while allowing a Dog to see the surrounding terrain. The necessary supplies were easy to find and very helpful to have. The hours are generous. I plan to return and am thinking about taking out a membership.

A nice clean, secure sniff spot with a pool, don't find that anywhere else! Worth the trip from another Hampton Roads city! My Golden Retriever swims at the beaches and rivers, but I'd never gotten him in a swimming pool before. This pool made it an easy transition! It's just the right size and easy to get in and out of! A perfect experience, thanks to the host!

This was our first Sniffspot experience and we had a blast! The yard was clean with plenty of toys. We’d love to come back!

We LOVED our time at this spot! Awesome pool and great area for sniffing. The only thing I wasn’t totally prepared for (and this might be on me for checking ahead of time) was that there were neighbor dogs that could interact through the fence. My pup is dog friendly so there wasn’t an issue, but it’s something to be aware of!

I had a great time with my labs! It was so relaxing and they really enjoyed swimming. So many toys for your pups to play with too!! I will definitely be returning

My golden retriever and I had the best time and we already can’t wait to come back. The area was so clean and they provided so much in the way of toys, water bowls, ect. At the end of our visit, Denise came out and introduced herself and gave me some treats for Argo. We had a wonderful chat and Argo loved the pool. We frequent the beach often, but since Argo is a service dog, I prefer the safety of a private area for water time when I can. We will absolutely be back, I in Virginia Beach, and it is more than worth it to make the drive to come here. I would give way more stars if I could!

Owner keeps the pool clean which we really appreciate. Pool is an excellent size. The change of depths in the pool is long which is nice for the pools. Thank you so much for the hospitality!

FAQ about our Chesapeake 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. 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.
