Location

Damascus, Oregon

Description

The trails are fenced in completely and a GREAT opportunity to practice recall and other off leash skills to prepare for future hikes with no boundaries(fencing). We are fully fenced and offer a mini trail system. You can find a long line by the water jug if you are just beginning recall training.

Cleanliness

100% of guests said this spot was as clean as expected during their visit.

Hazards

Blackberry bushes/vines and some potholes. Please bring buckets and clippers to leave with blackberries!Property is on an incline. Rain can cause mud and slippery spots so please be careful. When you arrive you’re going to park in the gravel area just outside the gate. You will enter the door right off the gravel area into a large field. As you enter the field you will see a 5 gallon water jug to fill the water bowl or fill your water bottle. This area is also where you will find the poop can, dry towel bin, toy bin, tennis ball bin and treats for purchase to work your recall! If your dog is sensitive to people or other dogs on site or through a sense, you will want to spend your time on the back area trails. The big field shares a fence with my backyard/courtyard area. My area has dogs coming in and out because I train and board pups. Dogs will not be out unattended and I will call them away from the fence area when your entering. However PLEASE If you are concerned about barrier aggression stay on leash until your past the big get over to the trail side. The gravel parking area for sniffspot is also parking for training clients. If somebody else’s unloading, please wait for them to vacate the area to unload. Many dogs I work with have behavioral issues so they also need space. Thank you!

    My favorite sniff spot to date! My pups loved chasing balls in the field, and exploring the trails. Definitely will be back!

  • Kim K., Feb 20, 2024

    The trails are very nice and we had a great time! If your dog is sensitive to hearing other dogs, this may be a tough spot for them.

  • Nicole K., Feb 20, 2024

    Lyndsi is a great host! The spot is amazing and has helpful signage. Huckleberry & I had so much fun walking/running the trails; we used the picnic table at the top of the hill as "home base." Some mud, so wear appropriate shoes if it has rained recently. We look forward to returning!
