Wonderful spot! Our 2 doxies loved the space and dock! We’ll be back! Thank you!
I really enjoyed this location. The space was great for me and my pup. Plenty of space for fetch. The view of the lake was so beautiful, I wish I had brought a hot drink to sip on while admiring the view!
The yard was bigger than expected and definitely big enough to play fetch. Water access with a dock was a big bonus. We had a great time!
Thank you so much! The humans had fun sitting and enjoying the scenery, and the dogs had a blast in such a big yard! We’re trying to teach our old dog rescue how to be comfortable in the water, so it was nice to have a quieter place to play in the water. Really appreciate you opening up your space!
This house is so beautiful. Perfect opportunity for our Sirius to practice swimming. Large backyard and benches and table set to sit on. The dock is sturdy and provides another place to sit with a gorgeous view of the lake. Everything is clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend. Maybe even book for two hours to enjoy the space longer. Will happily be back!!
Gorgeous. Saw 3 Eagles today. Swam with Jackson. Always the best day when I am here with Jackson. Feel so lucky to have someone within the local community offer up their space for us. ❤️❤️
My dog and I have so much fun at this Sniffspot. There is a gate between the nice sized yard and the lake, so I can close off lake access to allow a little drying off before getting in the car. Pet parents should be sure that swimming dogs have a reliable recall or a long line as it is possible to swim to someone else's non SniffSpot yard.
Had a great time running around on the grass and back and forth to and from the water! :)
Really nice lake access and clean yard!
Great place for our dog to enjoy the water and still have a large area to run around.
Had an amazing time! Our dogs are just getting used to swimming so this was a great spot to practice. Thanks so much for opening your space to the Sniffspot folks out there. Would definitely recommend!
Great just as we expected because of the 5 star reviews. My pup felt like he was at Disneyland we will be back!
This is the 4th time we have been here and we love it! Our Golden Retriever and his friends are in heaven swimming and then chasing the ball on the lawn! And beautiful views of the lake to enjoy for the humans!
Easy to find, great space, and my pup learned how to swim!
This was the most beautiful location and we plan to come back! Beautiful lake dock, and lovely fenced-in yard for maximum fluff enjoyment.
Our dogs loved the swim!
This place was awesome!! It was like our very own private dog beach. I was a little worried that the yard itself would be a little too small for my German Shepherd and mini Australian Shepherd to run in, but it was actually pretty big. The pictures don’t do it justice. We really loved this place!
Love the lake access
My dog loves it!!
What a peaceful oasis that I never knew existed! We had a great time and our pup got to both run around and play ball and discover water for the first time! Thank you, we'll be back again for sure.
Absolutely perfect for a hot day! Shade, water bowls for the dogs, lake to swim, and toys! Dock is slick but after my pups first stumble he took it slower.. there were people next door hanging outside with their dog and kids, but weren’t a bother! :)
What a great spot! It was a very hot morning so we only booked 1/2 hour which was perfect. Our dog loved doing zoomies in the yard, which was bigger than it appeared in photos. He has typically been fearful of water but he was brave and went in the lake to cool off (with a leash and with my hubby)! For people with reactive dogs, there were kids in both yards on either side, none of which was a problem for our dog. There wasn’t much shade in the morning for humans but our dog found some spots along the hedges. Looking forward to coming back again!
This is such a great and centrally located place for a pup! The yard is spacious with a good shade/sun balance (in the early/mid afternoon). The added bonus of the lake access is just the icing on the cake. There were several rubber/tennis balls, a frisbee, and a water bowl for the dogs and a really convenient bench for the humans.
A lovely yard for running and romping with a buddy. AND access to a swim spot for teaching our pooch to swim. Thanks so much!
Great location. There is a yard to play in and a lake to swim in. The neighbor’s dog barks a little bit, so just a heads up in case your dog is super reactive. Overall, I love this yard and am thankful that I can rent it out!
Awesome spot with a big yard and protected water access! We’ll be back!
Awesome spot for swimming, water play, and fetch- it was super hot out so Ponyo spent most of her time in the water, which was very warm:) area was secure, parking was easy, and we will be back for sure!
The hosts were quick about responding to my questions. The site is great and right on the lake.
My pup had a great time!!! There were a decent amount of people out on the lake but my dog doesn’t mind! Gorgeous spot
This place is amazing and I’m so grateful it exists to rent. Big yard to run around in and hedges on each side create a visual barrier. Then there is a gate to get to the dock and water, perfect place to swim. Sunny day so lots of kayakers and paddle boards out, neighbors out with kids too but really private still and great place, we can’t wait to come back
It was my first visit here, and my dog loved it! Plenty of space to chase a ball, and the extra opportunity to sit in some water really made his day! Will definitely be visiting again!
My pup and his bff had the best time here! Lots of space for chasing each other, dipping into the lake, and beautiful views.
Gorgeous day to be at this spot. Saw a couple of Eagles 🦅!
The water access is lovely! There is gradual entry on one side for dogs who aren't bold enough to dock dive. If your dog is reactive to people and dogs, it may be a challenging spot as noise does carry on water and dogs and people could be heard from the area. There were people out on the lake (boats, SUP, etc).
A perfect spot to sniff! Wide open yard with privacy bushes on both sides and a gate to access the lake. A water bucket and bowl are available for thirsty pups. Entrance to the yard is on the left hand side of the house with signs displayed to direct sniffers.
Very large open yard which is fenced off from the dock. The dock is fenced in nicely as well and the area along the short is pup friendly. A nice spot to just frolic or relax in the sun as well as have a little fun in the water.
This spot is wonderful! Clean and our pupper had a great time!
Saw two bald eagles fly over the lake while Jackson was swimming. It was a perfect day. ❤️
Perfect spot to let the dogs run around and swim.
This was awesome! My dog swam for the first time. We will definitely be back. I like that there’s a gate to the dock/lake area. Once done swimming we had the dogs play on the grass for a bit to dry off before heading home. Perfect mix of sun and shade too! Thank you!
Very nice spot. We had a great time running in the yard and swimming in the lake.
Beautiful, serene lakefront backyard perfect for any pup looking for secure playtime in a fenced area.
Great location and cannot wait to come back and enjoy the water next time!
Amazing place with dock. We were able to enjoy the lake ourselves as well as our dogs. Great time and a great place. Thank you so much for hosting
We got to use the lake today! Jackson overcame his fear of water today. So proud of him and feel so lucky to have this spot so he can practice swimming without other dogs around. Such a good day! Great spot. 🙂
A great spot! This was our dogs first time in a lake and the area was great for it! The yard was spacious and a perfect space for her to run around and dry off. Could not recommend this spot more
This place is amazing, our dogs had the best time! Large open area of grass for fetch and running around and then a seperate fenced off part with access to the lake.
This was our first time using Sniffspot and we loved it. The yard was bigger than I thought it was gonna be and was perfect for our two dogs. We went around 5pm and didn’t see or hear any dogs. Overall a smooth experience, will definitely be coming back here.
Our dogs had a blast! Having a safe spot to swim with reactive dogs is so great! It was overcast when we went, so on a sunny day I’m not sure how many dogs would be out around the neighbors houses (if any). We luckily didn’t see any during the hour there. Huge yard to play fetch when we weren’t swimming. Definitely plan on coming back! 😊💗
Our favorite spot. Easy to find. Quiet. Beautiful. Plenty of water. We had a good day. 🙂
This is a great spot - nice big grassy area to run around, the lake access is fenced off so you can use it or not, and there is dock and pebbly beach access to the water (minimal mud, yay!). Be cautious on the dock, it's a little slippery and my very excited border collies all slid the first couple of times until they got the hang of it! I'd happily come back for another visit, hopefully when it isn't raining on me!
Dock divers - despite my hopes, this is unfortunately not great for practicing dock diving. The dock is made of composite decking and is pretty slippery for dog claws, and my dogs slipped even when jumping from a stop at the end of the dock. I would not want them running on it for a typical dock diving jump.
My dogs had a fabulous time swimming in the lake. The fenced yard was plenty big enough for toy chasing. We will be back.
My dog had a blast here. Our visit coincided with a hot sunny day & it was perfect for her to get in the water to swim. There was plenty of room to run around, but she was most excited to get in the lake and dog paddle around lily pads.
Being such a beautiful day, there were some people out on the water a distance away. Just something to be aware of if your dog is sensitive to sound since it carries across the water so well.
When I reached out to the hosts with a question about parking, they were quick to respond with details that made our arrival smooth.
Would book this spot again in the future.
Loved this place, we got lucky and visited on the perfect weather day! I will have to put it off until my dog is a little better with his reactivity, there was a good amount of audible stimulus with neighboring dogs and he was starting to get a little stressed. However, my dog got to learn how to swim in a clean, safe space, which adds to building his confidence. Looking forward to coming back when my dog is better suited for the spot. Awesome bird watching too.
Awesome spot! We had a great time swimming in the lake! Both sides of neighbors were out on their own properties but kept to themselves and we were able swim in the lake and practice jumping off the dock! Easy to find except for the parking. There was only one little sign for where guest parking was and a sign of where to park when you get to the gate that leads to the sniff spot but the sign is not visible until you’re actually walking down there so it’s not that helpful for when just arriving. Would be great if there was a note on the listing of where to park. Such a fun spot, definitely coming again!
My boys had a great time! It was so nice that they could get in the water and cool down.
Beautiful day with the perfect water view! Love this spot.
Another great time was had by all!
Nice place for dogs to have fun!!
We had a great visit! The beach is fenced off from the main yard, which was nice when we were getting ready to go and didn’t want the dogs running back into the water at the last minute. The beach slopes gently, so dogs who’d rather wade than swim will still have fun. I wouldn’t recommend letting your pup take a running leap off the dock - the surface doesn’t have much grip, so a big jump could lead to injury. We’ll definitely be back!
This Sniffspot is AMAZING!!! Lots of room to play in and out of the water! I love that you can close access to the water. It was great for letting the pup dry off before heading home. Would have loved a place to put my dogs poop though!
Such an amazing Sniff spot. It’s so nice to have a safe place to let our dogs swim.
This spot was ok...... but I have a very reactive dog and the dog next door was barking constantly which was distraction. But also able to swim in the sniff spot location. The ad was misleading in this regard because there is absolutely dogs very close to you.
Issue number two was parking. They gave instructions to park by the cans but their mini van was taking up the spot and we spent a fair amount of time just figuring out where to park, because we thought the minivan belonged to someone in the previous time slot.
Number 3. They make you take your dogs poop with you. The owner was adamant that you don't throw the poop away in his can. So maybe bring a ziplock bag with you if you were coming from as far away as I was so you don't have to smell the poop.
This spot is incredible! Only thing to be aware of is that there is a gate on one side of the fence. My dogs enjoyed both the yard and the lake. It was absolutely gorgeous out and the best part is, it’s close to my house! We will definitely be back soon!
For Fitz this spot was great, however the listing is a little incomplete. You can definitely see and hear other dogs and people and I’m about 99% sure my dog was trying to check out some chickens? Lol. For us, it was great, but for others with reactive dogs I would use a little caution.
Pups had such a great time, highly recommended!
The host was very welcoming! The yard was perfect, and our Huey loved every second! Will definitely come back!
Gorgeous spot. Dog had a blast! Hope to be back!
This is now in our top 3 sniffspots, if not number 1. I have never seen my dogs have more fun than they did leaping through the lake water. The spot was clearly marked and secure. The yard was very clean and spacious. We will be back all summer!
awesome spot! i will bring the long line next time as my pup was so excited to wade in the water :) just a note if your dog is highly sensitive to sound or reactive, there are close neighbors - it wasn't any issue but my dog is just super sound sensitive and there were kids jumping on a trampoline. we stayed on leash because of that but we loved it anyway!! we'll be back!
Great spot! Water access has a gate for safety, and fence between neighbors yards continues into the water a bit which was a great visual cue for my dog to stay in our space.
We saw an Osprey teaching it’s babies to fly!
This is the best thing to exist ever! Our dogs are absolutely dead from all the swimming. It’s a beautiful view and the hosts are amazing! I would go every day if I could. Thank you so much!
Dogs had a great time exploring. Plenty of room to play fetch. Will definitely book again.
We love this spot! My dog and I had so much fun and got to enjoy the nice sunny day. Host replied quickly to inquiry. No parking issue. Parked off street next to the garbage bins. Yard is clean and well maintained. There’s plenty of room to play fetch. My dog loves the water so that is a big bonus. Thank you Tom and Debbie for sharing your space. Will definitely visit again.
Love this spot. Great big yard. Fully fenced. They had lake access so doggo could get a little water time. They had some tennis balls in the yard and water bowls. Easy access. My only complaint is I wish I had a little more communication on where to park!
Great spot and loved the lake access. My only complaint is parking is kind of difficult. Other than that, my dogs had tons of fun playing in the water!
Perfect spot for our two big and reactive dogs - they loved all the sniffs and we enjoyed the beautiful view and quiet space!
This was my first time using this app I will definitely be using it again. This yard was perfect size with a great view of the lake. I would highly recommend!
The pictures really don’t do this spot justice! Beautiful spot with so much room to run. We definitely did see a couple people on paddle boards / fishing / talking and we heard a dog barking but luckily today was a good day for my dog, he was very engaged with me and didn’t react too much to the other things going on, but I know other dogs and even mine if he were in a different mood, may not be able to handle so many triggers. Overall, it’s a very clean, large, and awesome spot!
What a great spot! We’ll definitely be back. My pup had the time of her life. Thanks so much!
Amazing place for my high energy labs. It is clean well fenced and a great spot for dogs to run and sniff. Tom is so very understanding.
Our dogs loved it! It’s a huge and spacious yard with lots to sniff. The bushes along the fence provide a great visual barrier. We heard a few dogs barking elsewhere around the lake. There are kids next door and they came out and were spraying our dogs with water over the fence (there’s a small section without bushes and the side of the yard facing the water doesn’t have a visual barrier) but they immediately apologized and stopped when we asked. Our dogs were okay with it but just something to be aware of! We’d definitely love to come back ☺️
My new favorite spot! Dogs loved jumping off the dock into the water, and playing fetch in the yard!
A delightful spot that is serene and spacious. Host was communicative about questions I had about the spot for my reactive pup. Good signage on a basketball hoop to guide you to the gate. Host would like you to park next to garbage bins by a garage, which is convenient, however, a bit challenging for us. There was a parade of neighbor kids right by the garage, making it impossible to for me to let my dog out until they left. This took up a good 10-15 minutes of our time, but the neighbor lady was courteous about it. A neighbor also has a dog barking for awhile when we first showed up, for those sound sensitive pups. Returning to our car was also a bit tricky as there was a dog my pup noticed before I could walking on the street that he had a reaction to. The yard is clean. I would recommend bringing water and a clean bowl. Although, there was a bowl set out by a bench with a small amount of water in it. I couldn’t see any access to fresh water otherwise. It is a lovely spot, however, a bit difficult for us with the level of reactivity my guy has at this time to visit again.
A beautiful yard and view! Fully fenced and clean w/water
Great spot. Spacious enough for a big dog to run. There is an access to water and a bench in the shade. Will be back.
Wow! My new favorite spot with Jackson! Pictures are duplicate to advertisement. I always give 5 stars for folks who rent out their spots for us. It is so generous and we are grateful for each spot. But if I could give this place more stars, I would. Perfect location. Been looking for a new spot close to us for awhile. We are so happy!
This place was beautiful and serene. Lots of room to run and well maintained. Can’t wait to come back!
This is a really great spot! Beautiful location and huge space to run around. I brought my dog’s favorite toy to chase, but she was really just interested in sniffing around, until she saw the chickens next door to spy on. I’ll definitely be going back!
Great views and nice yard for our dog to run through. This spot is conveniently located and had a bowl of water at the ready. This is a perfect spot for a quick getaway for your pup.
Spectacular spot! So much room for my dog to run around, and you can’t beat the view! An outdoor hose is provided but bring your own water bowl. We saw a couple of kayakers on the lake nearby for a little while but they didn’t disturb my dog. Love this spot and we’ll definitely be back!
