What people say about dog parks around Cleveland, Ohio
My pitbull mix was able to run around til she was exhausted. Great place to work on training without distractions. Mission accomplished!
Loved this spot!! My dogs loved chasing eachother outside & back inside. This is a very unique spot & I will definitely be back!! It was easy to find, clean, & so much fun!!
My dogs had sooo much fun at Bark! The space is huge and I love that it’s outdoor AND indoor - the weather was good when we were there but my dogs loved going in and out of both spaces. There is some agility equipment there to use as well. The place is also extremely clean and there was plenty of water available for my dogs which they very much appreciated. They also have an indoor pool in a separate area that you can rent; we tried it but my dogs weren’t into it, but for dogs that love water it would be amazing!! We will most definitely be back.
Loved it and just right down the street.. I'm the General Manager of the Cleveland Marriott Downtown at Key Tower..
I would like to build a relationship with you all.. we allow dogs at the hotel and people ask about dog parks. Would love to build a relationship where you are the only park we recommend.. we could give info at check in etc.. if you are interested can me .. 612-900-9597
Very nice spot! Quiet and private and our dogs loved it! Big enough for the dogs to have plenty of room to run but not so big that they couldn't go too far.
This is a great spot for both my dogs, they loved it and it was enough space for them to run around and get some exercise. It was also really nice because it was so close to the lake.
Very nice! Our dogs loved it. There were dog toys, a bowl for water right under a spigot, a garbage can for waste bags, 2 chairs, and both sun and shade. Nice high fence, dogs couldn't see anything else (people, other animals). Nice breeze off the lake. Perfect. This was our first experience with SniffSpot and we will be back. Thanks, Amy!
VERY clean! There were also toys! And a place to dispose of waste! And a faucet for water!! This place rocks I can’t wait to come back :)
We loved Amy’s private dog park! Perfect amount of space for our dogs to roam and run around. They had a great time! There is a bin of toys and chairs to sit in. We went on a cold evening when it was starting to get dark but the space is very well lit. We definitely plan to come back! Thanks, Amy!

Great view,great yard,lots of room,giz was worn out in 40mins.highly recommend for people trying to seclude their dogs a bit dont mind the cat in the window.just curious Amy and her husband are great,wonderful and understanding of gizmos short comings.
This was a wonderful little yard! Our pups had such a good time. They left a big bowl of water out for them to drink and had some toys for us to throw around. There was also covered seating which was nice. We went later in the day so it was dark out by the time we left, but it was no problem since there was plenty of lighting outside! The view is also gorgeous you can see the lake from the yard. Definitely recommend bringing your dogs out for a visit!
This was a great spot!!! Very large yard with some toys & fresh water. The host was great & communicated very well. Entering & exiting the spot was easy & convenient! I’ll definitely visit again.
This was my first experience using Sniffspot and my pup enjoyed every second. Great space and Alpesh kindly put out fresh water and toys that my dog could play with. We’ll definitely be back again!
Alpesh was an amazing host, communication was A1. He has an amazing space completely fenced in. He had water bowls and poop bags for us. This was my first time using Sniffspot and I plan to be a repeat guest.
Alpesh was a great host! He greeted us when we arrived, and he made a wonderful space for our dogs to run around. There were a couple balls that we were able to use for fetch. We forgot a water bowl for the dogs. This would be a great thing to leave outside for your guests in the future Alpesh! Hope to be back soon :)
Awesome spot! Plenty of shade and feels very secluded. Could not hear or see any other humans or animals from the yard and the host was responsive to messages. Fence was very secure for my dogs but I could see a determined tiny dog being able to slip under the fence or the slightly raised shed so just a warning to others.
Water bowls were left out along with treats, towels, and toys. Everything was very clean and my pups had a blast. We will be back!
Great spot! Can't wait to go back!
Great space - appreciate the water bowl being left out. Will be back again!
Great location! Yard was clean with a perfect mix of sunshine and shade. My furry daughter enjoyed herself.
Very secure yard with everything you could need for a great romp with your pup! Will be back!
What other types of private dog parks are available?
Dog water parks
Many hosts have added water features like pools and/or are nearby lakes or rivers.
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.
Are dog parks safe?
While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks much safer than public dog parks. With Sniffspot all bookings are private for just you and dogs you bring with you and we require all dogs to be vaccinated (or have equivalent titers). All Sniffspot locations are vetted and reviewed by guests so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog. 95% of reviews on Sniffspot visits in the Cleveland area are 5 stars.
How do I know if a dog park works for my dog?
You can filter Sniffspot dog parks by fencing and distractions. If your dog doesn't have good recall, you can visit one of our 81 fully fenced dog parks in the area. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our 28 off leash areas where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby. You can also filter locations to avoid other domestic animals and people. We also recommend reading reviews and reaching out to the host with any questions.
