Lovely, spacious yard full of grass! My dogs had the time of their life rolling in the grass and staring at the chickens haha. Plenty of area to run, play fetch, etc.

My dog really enjoyed this space! She loved checking out the chickens and spent most of the visit doing that. She had lots of space and I felt like the fence was secure.

The spot was beautiful and super peaceful:) our boy does not like other animals so we appreciated the host respecting our wish to be away from other animals. Overall a great visit with lots of woods to explore.

Such a neat place to explore! Wooded, with trails throughout and a creek. There isn’t fencing, but there are a lot of natural barriers. The hammocks and fire pits and picnic tables make it a real nice place to hang out and enjoy the forest.

This place is amazing!! Brought my dog here to have some fun on his birthday, and it did not disappoint. The grounds are very clean and not muddy, even after a rain. My dog loved swimming in the pond. The horse and cows on the property are behind a fence and, though they were interested in my dog, they were very amicable and my timid boy wasn’t afraid of them. The owners were kind enough to let us use their hose to spray our dog down after he got out of the pond. We will definitely come back to this beautiful spot!

We loved our time at this spot! The host was very responsive and answered all of my questions prior to the booking. I have two dogs, and one is reactive towards other dogs, so I had many questions in order to prepare :). My dogs had a great time, and it was very peaceful- we’ll definitely be back!

A friend and I brought our dogs here to swim and play! We all had an amazing time!! The dogs loved getting to run and play and the lake was great! The property is beautiful and clean and we even saw a white swan! The owner is also super nice! We arrived late because of construction traffic (we traveled from Broad Ripple area) and the owner allowed us to stay a little bit extra time which was so so kind!! Thanks Hannah! We will be back in the future!! 🫶🏼💞

This spot was perfect for an afternoon swim. Our dogs loved the tall grass and smelled about every blade before they dipped their toe beans in the water. My senior dog absolutely loved her dip and went back in multiple times.

My boyfriend and I brought our newly adopted dog here and it was great!! The area was beautiful and our dog had a blast playing in the water and running around! They gave us a doggy life vest which was very sweet!

My dog had an absolute blast today! She was in and out of the lake all afternoon, never stopping to rest. A double shampoo in the tub and she’s snoring away. Thank you for opening your yard to us!

So much fun! My dog really enjoyed being able to explore off leash and he loved the lake! I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a spot where your dog can run free. Hannah’s an amazing host, she left water and toys out for my pup!

Property was lovely, tidy, and accurate to the photos. The host is very responsive and friendly. The lake is definitely the "main attraction," so would strongly recommend if you need somewhere safe to let your dog swim! My puppy is too young to trust off leash yet, so we did not use the lake; we wandered around and he did a lot of sniffing. There ARE other dogs that can be heard and sometimes seen from this Sniffspot. I hope the host adds that information because it would have been helpful to know ahead of time. I would have also liked more info about where the property boundaries were, because I wasn't sure how far we could go without encroaching on neighbors.

This spot is amazing! I threw Bingo's birthday party here, and they were so helpful and really helped accommodate us. The space is beautiful! So enriching for your dogs.

My Gabriel Theodore had a “wooftastic” time!! What a wonderful area for your best friend to run, sniff, sniff, sniff, and sniff some more!! The host had water, toys, (which Gabriel didn't use, cuz he brought his “brudders wif him!” Pooh bags, and a Pooh bag can!!! More space then a tri-pawd could check out even in his wheel chair, but Gabriel wants to return! **Gabriel is reactive to other dogs, the host made certain there were ZERO dogs around!!** Gabe, his brudders, and this mom rate this host a 20 out of 10!!!!!!!!❤️
