What people say about dog parks around Dallas, Texas
This was a great sniff spot if you’re looking for a place for your dog to run and even swim a little. The owner has tons of toys for the pups to play with. He also has poop bags, water bottles, bug spray, and sunscreen available to those who needed it. The place was very easy to find and get into. Overall a great experience for both humans and pups.
Easy to access and the yard is shaded and has chairs to sit in:) the host was responsive and We enjoyed our time very much. I will say, the yard is not as green as the pics and does not have as much grass at the pictures show. Wasn’t that big of a deal to me because the yard is still very clean and fun for the dogs to play in! Plus, there’s a hose by the door you can rinse their paws off if you want to But if you’re someone who prefers grass, this spot might not be for you but you should still come check out the spot! But Texas just finished it’s dry season so that is probably why. Overall, I loved our time and will be going back! Thanks for a great time!
This is a great, super clean & secure backyard in a very nice, easy to access location. Easy street parking. If your dog isn’t a nosey puppy who gets into everything, this will be a fabulous spot for you! Tons of balls for playing fetch, water, poop bags, bug spray, a shady place to sit.
A couple things to consider that were not the hosts fault at all: if your dog is very curious & nosey, you may spend the majority of your time trying to keep them from exploring the side flower beds, drinking from puddles, or getting into the homeowners gardening supplies.
Also, the lawn was cut literally minutes before we used the spot (which is awesome), but I spent hours trying to get thousands of tiny shards of grass out of my pups longer curly hair. So just something to consider if you have a curly or long haired dog, maybe ask the host how recently the grass was cut.
Other than those things, which again were not the hosts fault at all, this was a great place to play! Host was super nice & accommodating as well.
Never done sniff-spot before, but since going, it was great! My husband and I went to Phillip’s back yard with our dog (Koda) and we really enjoy the deck with the lights, everything we needed, like bug spray for the night and dogs toys! Of course our dog really enjoyed the back yard. Our baby tryied to get in the pool, but only sat there looking at the water 😂 plus we really liked that there were name signs of other dogs there. This is perfect for us because our dog has a bit of troubles with other dogs. Having a back yard to himself, is great! We live in an apartment so it worked out perfectly to gave him a chance to exercise, without taking him away in 15 minutes. Before we’ve had hard time taking him to parks, for fighting with certain dogs. This way I know my baby is happy and can get the experience of outside world with out being bored at home not able to exercise. What a fun, cute, and quiet place definitely recommend this sniff spot!! Thank you sooo much for hosting us!!!!
Yard was well kept, relaxing, and just perfect size. A five gallon bucket of tennis balls and other toys were available on site in addition to bottled water (for humans), a specially marked dog water faucet and bowls, poop bags, bug spray, and more. My pups had a blast with the provided Chuck-It balls and the hanging tug from the tree. The pool was easily accessible for my pups and myself, if I were taking a dip. Overall, would 100% recommend.
Persephone loves it here, and so do we! She enjoys the Stock Tank to cool down in, and it's a safe depth for a medium size dog! The yard is super secure and it's just super relaxing here in general! Definitely coming back again, this was the perfect way to escape the Texas heat! The porch has a table and seats, there's sanitizer and a fridge full of water. This is a mini paradise, we all had a great time, and I love being able to spoil my dog like this!
Update: even with the heat in the summer time, Philip still finds ways to accommodate pets and pet parents with cooling systems and pools! My dog Loki absolutely loves coming here and he get excited every time he figures out where we’re going! One of the best places in town if I do say so myself! Thanks Philip for your great hospitality and your genuine care for us dog parents and our dogs!
My dogs and I LOVED this place. The host really put their time into making it an diversely fun experience. There are so many toys, the deck is decorated so cute, lots of shaded seating, a pool for them to swim in. Good size yard for running/playing fetch. He even put out bug spray and sunscreen. There are water bowls and a water hook up. There are overhead fans on the deck that kept us cool. Overall, great experience, my dogs are exhausted from the fun they had. The host is super kind as well. Will be back and would recommend 😊
This was my our first Sniffspot and it was a fantastic experience. I have a highly reactive dog who cannot visit dog parks, so finding a securely fenced play area was well-worth the $7. The yard is located in a quiet, safe neighborhood. You can also tell that the host really loves dogs from all the little details and well thought out accommodations. Lots of toys, water, sunscreen, bug spray, and bubbles were provided. Highly recommend!
Oh my goodness this place is even more adorable and perfect in person. Our dog loved it- we don’t know her whole story, so this could’ve been her first time ever in a yard like this. She had fun exploring and it was fun to watch her get to run around. (Our apt has a dog park, but there’s gaps in the fence line everywhere) and there wasn’t a single place she could’ve gotten out here, so that was a great stress reliever for us. We’ll definitely be returning!
Holy moly! I had the best time with my pups! Phillip was incredible to work with. He communicated so clearly in advance and when I arrived, everything was set up exactly as he stated.
The backyard is PARADISE! It’s thoughtfully appointed with everything you could possibly need.
My dogs had the time of their lives! The backyard was perfect for them - lots of fun new places to sniff!
I can’t say enough good things about my experience. This was my first time booking with Sniff Spot and I lucked out finding Phillip and his amazing backyard for our first try!
I’ll definitely be back again soon!
This is such an incredible gem! I looked forever for the perfect spot to host a birthday party for my dog, and this was definitely it. The property was very easy to find and access, and the yard was beautiful with a pool, small deck, covered patio with table and chairs, and even a mini fridge. Phillip prepared a lot of thoughtful items including a chilled water, bowls, paper towels, and plenty of poop bags. Our dogs LOVED the little pool! Also appreciate that there was a hose to rinse off the pups before we left. I hope we will be back soon!!
Best spot EVER. We hosted a birthday party and everything about this place was amazing. Starting with the really long driveway you have access to, the beautiful setting (near a creek), the complimentary waters, and the cute set up! Our dogs LOVED the pool but also had so much room to run around ☺️ Also found out my dog loves tree ropes! Highly recommend to anyone wanting a private but spacious locations to hang with yours dogs and friends.
Wow! When I found out that Sniffspot existed I was surprised! I booked this location for my pups 1st birthday party! Other locations had nothing on this place. 1st booking was so easy and Phillip responded promptly even before booking and helped with all my questions. After booking he was able to answer any last minute questions I had. Communication was the best part here. Even the day of the party he assured me that everything was ready for us and provided instructions. When we arrived everything was so beautiful & organized and prepared. The place is amazing and we had a great time! This place was the place for my pups. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is needing a place for their pups, or just to relax with their pups. Thank you Phillip for this amazing 1st experience. Looking forward to the 2nd booking!
This was my first Sniffspot visit, and this spot exceeded my expectations. The yard was perfectly fenced and spotless. I brought a water bowl, but the host provided bowls, poop bags, and even a Chuckit. My lab jumped into the stock tank as if she grew up on a ranch. I highly recommend this spot, especially for water dogs. Thank you!
This Sniffspot location is remarkable. The host, Phillip, makes it so easy for me to schedule a visit for my two very large pups. For several reasons, I don't have many options to let me dogs off-leash, but Sniffspot and especially Phillip's location answered that issue. My dogs are now becoming familiar with the route to this location, and both get so excited when we turn off the highway heading to their favorite fun-spot.
This spot honestly could not be more perfect! It has nice shady and sunny spots and is a great size to be able to run around or sniff. The fence is very high and secure, and the rope on the tree was a big hit! The table and chairs are also great for the humans! We had a fantastic time and will absolutely be back. Philip is also lovely and clearly has spent a lot of time and energy making his yard such a great Sniffspot!
After three days on the road with our two large dogs, Phillip’s yard was truly an oasis for all dogs and humans involved. We had a quiet and relaxing evening sitting at the beautiful table on the lovely deck as our boys sniffed, played and swam. There was not a single detail missed on how to make this an amazing time for you and your pets. If we are ever in the Dallas area again we will absolutely spoil our dogs with this place again.
Just as advertised. Great little spot to take your dogs and relax. It's got lots of places to explore and new scents to keep your pups excited AND they can go swimming if they want! How cool is that?! Just remember to bring a bowl(they have bowls but I like to use my own) and poo bags so you can clean up after your pups. there is a fountain there to get water from so you don't have to bring your own.
It was secure and private and very clean so you don't need to worry about stepping in goo and dealing with that mess.
gonna make this a bi-monthly visit as the dogs like the ride in the car and then get to run around and play. I think you can even have a little party there if you bring your food so everyone can have fun.
Ok so first of all, Jennifer COULD NOT have been nicer! Her backyard was pure bliss! Nicely manicured and decorated. Perfect amount of shade and sun! It was quiet and serene. All kinds of birds were chirping, it was so peaceful! Most importantly, my dogs had a BLAST!
Jennifer was so sweet to provide tennis balls and a water bowl for the dogs. She even offered a towel for the wet pups!
I will definitely be back!

FAQ about our Dallas 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.
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. 97% of reviews on Sniffspot visits in the Dallas 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 135 fully fenced dog parks in the area. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our 32 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.
The Dallas area has 7 Sniffspot locations with private trails for you and your dog to walk or hike. Dogs can generally be off leash on Sniffspot trails. The most popular trail is West Willow Acres (8 acres of dog heaven!).
