Huge backyard, perfect setting for one or multiple doggies to get some pent up energy out or for owners to train their babies! Completely fenced in, easy access for entry/exit. Brick and block barriers available around the property for the escape artists :). Multiple faucets for drinking water. Friendly neighbors. One neighbor does have a dog that you may see sometimes but smaller and harmless so I wouldn’t worry unless your dog is super reactive to others. No dogs of my own so enjoy the time with yours!

Heavily wooded area in one corner of the yard. Could be hard to spot smaller dogs, if they wander to the area.

    Very clean, but there are a lot of mosquitos so plan accordingly.

    This is a great spot for dogs to burn off some energy! We had a great time and brought a few toys to play with. With it being summertime I would recommend bringing mosquito repellent. :)

    This spot was super clean, both gates are open for entrance so make sure to close the secondary gate prior to unleashing. Would def use again. We picked up our dogs poop after they played hard and had a great time.

    my dogs had a blast! the fence does have some weak spots (i have larger dogs) but it was no issue at all! my dogs loved playing with the sticks in the yard. we will defintently return!

    Host replied: Thank you so much! I’m glad to hear they had a good time!

    Nice yard, with easy access. However it was said that there were no dogs visible but the neighbors did have a dog who was out and barking.

Animal lover. No dogs of my own (yet). Rarely home. If I am, the yard is yours. Plentiful space in the Sherwood Forest neighborhood! Please come and enjoy!
