Hello there. Welcome! Aunty Sooz's playground is about 1/4 acre of relatively flat grass and clover. I don't spray chemicals and choose to embrace my weeds. Also, there is a compost pile behind the shed where various critters like to burrow and lots of things to sniff! There are some toys on the white table under the pergola, but of course you can use your own. There is also a black plastic bin on the deck and a white doggy bag dispenser on the south side of the fence. My back yard is a work in progress. My yard work never seems to end. I am in the process of refinishing some wrought iron patio furniture. Hopefully, it will look better as the weather improves. For the dark winter months, I have decided to leave the holiday lights up. I also added some solar-powered ones although I'm not sure they help all that much. The previous owner left three handmade pvc hurdle obstacle poles that you can set up if you do agility training. There is a small fire pit which is the only other big obstacle for pups to zip past. In case the ground is damp, I try to keep clean towels on the table as well. There is also a dog water bowl near the back porch gate and a big metal one on the deck. I will have the hose hooked up when the weather warms. ***I ask that you book a few hours ahead so I can prep the backyard. Sometimes this app is buggy and I don't see your reservations. *** The back gate can be a little tricky if you're not familiar. It is a tight turn towards the backyard. Pups will likely go up onto the porch or in flower beds. The gate closest to the garden is a bit easier to navigate with a pup. You have to reach in between the two gate panels and pull the metal lever towards you as you push the gate open. I will try to prop it open for you and write you a personal welcome sign if there's enough time. Have fun!

There is a boysenberry bush and some unwieldy raspberry bushes on the north side of the fence. I also have a compost pile behind the blue shed. I partially blocked it off with an agility pvc jumping hurdle and wheelbarrow.

    Amazing nice little yard great for working on trading or just having fun with your pup. Beautiful with lots of extras. Thank you so much!

    This spot is exactly as described. It's a good spot for dogs to have some freedom and run free without their owners having to worry. The fence is high enough and secure. The yard was well kept and there were dog toys on the table to use. Nice flat level ground and there were plenty of chairs if you need to sit. Bella and I would definitely go back.

    Perfect spot for me & the Boys❗️❗️ Thankx

  • Emily C., Feb 28, 2023

    We had a fantastic time running around and playing in this lovely yard! Especially appreciated the toy basket and water bowl. We will definitely be back!

    Hutson says that this is a great Sniffspot! The fence is secure, so I couldn't get out (no matter how hard I tried), there are chairs and a table for my hooman to be comfortable and I got to have my picture taken in front of a St.Patricks Day background (my hooman seemed very excited about this)! I will definitely be asking to come back again soon!

    Our first experience with Sniffspot was really good. Just enough space for our rescue dog to experience some freedom from the Leash

  • Leigh M., Feb 5, 2023

    The owner puts a lot of effort into creating a nice space for people and dogs. The yard was clean and well-kept, with a nice deck and a basket of toys. I definitely plan to go back.

    Our dogs love going here!

  • Jane B., Dec 8, 2022

    Love the festive lights! Thanks for providing poop bags and a big bowl of water!

    This was a great spot for our lab to play! Thoughtfully set up and very convenient!

Meet your host

Hello from Aunty Sooz! I am an artist, frustrated designer, pet sitter, and lover of plants and animals. I moved here in December 2020 from Maryland, but I have lived many places. I hope to find myself planted here for some time. My backyard is a work-in-progress. Hopefully you will visit when it looks perty.
