We had a great time! The space is large and completely fenced in. We were looking for a neutral area for our dog to practice coexisting with my parents new dog to practice skills learned in training between sessions. This space was perfect! We will be back!
We do not have an adequate yard to properly exercise or work on training with our newly adopted dog, Lucky. When the trainer mentioned SniffSpot.com, we decided to try it. Lucky loved his time at dog yard Playful Pups has available! We were able to play ball and work on some training with no distractions or worries. We will most definitely be back again!
The only 2 suggestions I would make to improve the experience would be:
1. A poop bag dispenser - for those that might forget there own.
2. Lights - this would allow for longer use of the area and help during those times at dusk when it is a little bit harder to see.
I know both of these would be a cost to Playful Pups but thought I’d pass it along.
Thank you so much for having this available for those of us that could really use it!
Thank you for another wonderful evening!
Very nice spot for my dog to run around and get his zoomies out, we’ll definitely be back!
Needed a place to run and play off lease. The yard was a decent size and grassed mowed, and our dog loved it!! My only suggestion would be to offer a 30 minute slot as one hour was a tad to long for our dog.
We are so happy to have found this spot. It was a perfect yard for my dog to get some off leash running exercise and play time. Loved all the surrounding trees. I also appreciate the way you schedule 1/2 hour between appointments. Very nice.
A great Sniffspot! Manchito loved climbing on the large rock in the yard, and we were both thankful for the shade on such a hot day. I did a quick “perimeter check” before removing his leash, and the yard was very clean.
2 small notes: First, I found several large seeds (maybe walnuts?) that had fallen from a large tree in the yard; my dog didn’t notice/care, but others might. Second, the Adirondack chairs/table provided had dirt/pollen/webs on them - nothing out of the ordinary for outdoor furniture - so if you’re sensitive to that, consider bringing a blanket or camp chair with you.
Thanks for having us, Laurie! We’ll definitely be back. 🙂
It was very clean and grassy.
This is a really great spot! It felt private and secure. It was immaculately clean. The fence was tall and there weren’t any gaps/holes that my two small-medium sized dogs could ever fit through. We could hear a few cars and dogs barking at the kennel, but it was very peaceful overall. I have one reactive dog and her interest was piqued slightly, but it did not seem to bother her. Perfect amount of space to run and chase frisbees and balls! It was nice to have a couple chairs and a table, as well. There’s a sign for the play yard at the road to turn onto which makes it super easy to find. My pups absolutely loved their time here. We will definitely be back!
Clean and private location. My dog loved hearing the neighboring dogs barking and the rooster!
Hank cannot wait to go back! Well maintained, private & secure! Shaded areas. There was seating & a box of toys for use. No waste receptacle on site so you need to take ‘doody’ home with you and make sure you bring along a bowl & water.
beautiful spot and very relaxing! toys available for the pups to use. my dogs loved to climb the big rock. will definitely come back!
Such a great spot, our pup Penelope always has a wonderful time!
My dog is very shy, so we can’t take him to the doggie parks. He has lots and lots of energy that he needs to run off! He absolutely loved this place. Very secluded, not hard to find at all. The area was super safe, would definitely book again!
Secluded and quiet spot to burn off some canine energy. Will definitely book again.
Lots of space! It was perfect for 2 dogs. They were exhausted after 20 minutes of running
My puppies love visiting the play yard!
The groundhog holes have been filled in, which is great!
Great fenced in area for pups to run and play. Shaded during certain times of the day.
Loved it! Clean, great fencing and the perfect size!
My dogs had a fantastic time! Tons of room to run, mixture between sun and shade, grassy, and chairs to sit on while you watch your dogs play. 100% will be going back!
This place was awesome! Super well marked with a sign from the road. I felt so safe and secure letting my boy run around. We will definitely be back!!
This was our first SniffSpot experience and we will definitely be back! I can’t say I have any complaints and Maisie certainly didn’t have any either! The only thing I would mention is to watch out for one or two deeper holes with smaller pups or older dogs. Maisie absolutely loved having plenty of space to run in the sun and cool off in the shade when she needed to. So excited to have found this spot!
My dogs had a great time running around this area, the fence was secure and there was plenty of room to run. My only issues was a couple of large holes in the ground that for some reason my dog kept tripping over, my other dog had no problems with it though. The area was very clean an secure, I would definitely recommend.
Such a great way to give my dog off leash time and work on his muscle strength (he has shoulder joint issues). Don’t forget a water bowl like i did. Had to use the frisbee I took. Haha
We absolutely love visiting this sniff spot! Our dog, Shelby, is a one year old German Shepherd who has an unfortunate history of being abused and abandoned. She is very dog reactive, and we live in the suburbs with no fence and dogs on all sides. Being able to come to a safe, well maintained area and let her run off leash is absolutely saving my sanity, and is helping her to relax and decompress as she adjusts to life with her forever family.
Just perfect for a Sunday session of fetch. Thanks for sharing your space.
Nice, large, and clean place to exercise your dogs. My reactive dog enjoyed quiet time off leash with no triggers.
Great spot to take your pups for a play! Private fenced area and I don’t have to worry about my pups getting into anything around someone else’s house! Will definitely be back for more play times.
We had a great time! The space was nice and secluded, with a very tall fence which was great! Plenty of room for our pups to run and play. Thanks so much for sharing your spot! I’m sure we will be back again in the future.
Large fence, chairs, out in the woods beautiful 😍
Nice spot! Will visit again.
The play yard was perfect. My dog enjoyed his time and didn't want to leave! It was a saturday afternoon so the gun range was active but was not a bother to my easily startled dog. Very happy with the experience and will definitely be back.
Great place to take the pup for a run. Secluded, tall fence was perfect for my dog to have some solo time.
We had a wonderful time with our dog at this sniff spot today! The yard area was very large and well maintained, and the fence was high and sturdy. We also appreciated the toy box!
A few things that we noticed during our two hour stay…..There was some noise from the nearby dog boarding facility as well as a nearby gun range, but it wasn’t overwhelming or upsetting to our dog at all. There was what appeared to be a water spigot at the far end of the yard, but it was not functional. We had brought along our own water and a bowl, so it wasn’t a problem at all. It wasn’t entirely clear how to most optimally latch the gate once we were inside the yard, but I think we got it right after a bit. Also, when you pull into the area, there isn’t a parking spot per se, but there is plenty of room to maneuver, park, turn around, etc, and everything was cleared out and accessible.
Our dog is brand new to us (this is just week three!) and she is a rescue who has had a very difficult past few months. It was such a joy to watch her run and play stress free today! Thanks so much, we will absolutely be back!
We had a great time! I love the fact that you have line of sight to your dog no matter where they are within the play area. We had a great experience!!
Nice solid fencing. I have an escape artist and she didn’t find any way out.
This was our first time with sniff spots. And we picked a true winner. The space is huge my dogs had ample room to run and play. My dogs like to wrestle and explore and were easily able to find plenty of new sniffs. There is a seating area for three people with a small table as well as a giant toy box with balls of all sizes and a tug of war rope. The yard is great, be mindful of two divots. The host mentioned these so we were well aware. The space is quiet except for a few gun sounds from the gun range nearby.
At first The sounds spooked my dogs a little bit but my husband and I kept talking to each other so it wasn't a sudden burst of noise. Again The host had mentioned that in their description so definitely be mindful if your dogs are sound sensitive. It is really easy to miss the sniff spot so if you make it to the doggie daycare just turn around and go back. The play Yard has a small white sign. We drove past it at first but was able to find it after we turned around. So pretty easy to find
My husband my dogs and myself will definitely be utilizing the space again as I thought it was perfect for our pups.
Thank you 5 out of 5 🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾
Safe and secure play yard for my two pups! They enjoyed themselves so much and are tuckered out from 1 hour or playtime. We’ll definitely be back!
Great spot! Private with room to run and super easy access. My pup had such fun with the bin of balls and toys to play with, too!
This is the perfect yard to run our boys. Clean, private, lots of toys to play with and seating for us! Will definitely be making this spot a regular visiting space for us! Thanks so much!
The sign signifying the play yard driveway is a little hard to see, but the yard itself is spacious and beautiful. Very clean, and well kept.
It was perfect. Beautiful space. Secure fence. Shaded. We will be back! BTW we drove past the gun range ... there were people there shooting... we heard none of it!
This is a very nice fenced in area for dogs to run. The woman who i assume owns or runs this names Laurie is very nice and responds quickly to any questions or messages. There was only one issue I had and was not her fault at all but she immediately added it to their description and that is the shooting range that is close by. My dog has bad anxiety and any loud noises are extremely bothersome for him so we had to leave soon after we arrived. I would definitely return to their play yard if it wasnt for that and am actually considering trying it at a different time of day to see if there is no gunshots going off. Laurie also gave me information of another location they have for us to try. She was also willing to refund my money since we couldnt stay but I didnt want it because it wasnt her fault. I say all of this so others know that she truly went above and beyond to help and her play yard is a good space for your dog to run.
