Description

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!

Cleanliness

Hazards

There are a few plants that I have read could be dangerous to pups. I am in the process of marking them with skull and cross bones signs when Iam unable to remove them or block them off. I also have a thorny boysenberry bush and some unwieldy raspberry bushes on the north side as well as a compost pile behind the blue shed. There is a baby wisteria growing up the metal bird cage. I have a peony shrub by the blue shed and the previous owner planted gladiolus bulbs by the water faucet that i need to dig up. I think I removed all of the hostas. I try to fence off the plant areas from curious noses.

    Space was well maintained, although the gate was kind of confusing. Really appreciate the water and plenty of toys to choose from! Our pup loved his time here to explore and never got bored.

    Host replied: Hi Jill, sorry about the gate. I propped it open for your first visit, but it was super blustery last night. Maybe it blew closed? Glad your pup had a good time. 🐾

    Great backyard and large fence to keep my 3 dogs inside

  • Shawna C., Nov 12, 2023

    Great spot! Secure fence, potty bags, toys, and some agility equipment available to be used! Adorable photo op by the entrance. We had a great time!

  • Sherry L., Nov 5, 2023

    Even more fun today 🩷❤️🩷🐾 Beautiful yard and lots of sunshine

  • Sherry L., Nov 4, 2023

    We have 3 small dogs and our crew don’t need acres and acres to run. This yard offered us a huge area for all of them to run and play with each other. The fence was the perfect size for us. The extra fencing around the plants was very helpful at keeping them from eating plants. The porch was perfect for humans to rest and we found a box of toys and balls as well. Love the area on the side of the porch where great pictures can be taken. We highly recommend this yard and the host is great with communication and keeping it clean.

    Bowie loved visiting here! We brought our own ball but he enjoyed playing with the one provided more 😂 I liked that supplies and toys were centrally located as well as a trash can.

  • Debra G., Oct 3, 2023

    A very nice and clean area for you and your pup to play in

  • Tracey A., Sep 15, 2023

    Always the best time at Aunty Sooz’s!

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.
