Luna enjoyed running around and climbing all the boulders, the yard is very large with plenty of room to play and explore. The yard was pretty clean, but there was some poop lying around. Overall we enjoyed!
The Sniffspot was awesome! Loved that there were chairs and beds for the dogs!
Loved this spot! There were tons of things for the dog to smell, lots of rocks to explore, and the hosts even left out toys and water. We would definitely visit again!
Super fun, the dogs enjoyed sniffing around and Katie had a ton of great stuff set up for us!!!
Big area for my dog to explore and play fetch in
had a ball as always ☺️
Nice open space and lots of boulders to climb on for the dogs. My dog had a blast. Lots of toys, water bowls, chairs, and shade to relax while your pup plays. Thanks Katie!
Awesome as Always. my dog loves this yard!!
Great spot. We went early and heard the neighbors but it wasn’t bad. Our dog didn’t seem to mind and continued to run around. Will definitely be back! Great spot.
Love the new shade canopy! The pups had a great time as always 😊
Yaya had a great time! We used the space to let her run around and practice some recall. She definitely got a great workout in and loved resting in the shade. Note that there are cacti with sharp thorns so be careful and watch if your dog like mine tends to stick her head in bushes/plants to investigate…she got 2 long thorns stuck on her but they weren’t deep. We removed them very easily and she learned her lesson after that. Despite that little hiccup, we will definitely be back! Yaya was so happy this afternoon.
Our first time using SniffSpot and had an amazing day! Spacious, adventurous, and lots n lots for the pups to sniff. Have 2 rescue dogs with a lil bit of anxiety and this off the leash spot was a safe controlled environment and exactly what they needed. Thank you for having us! Love, Mikey & Minnie
Very unique spot! We would come back and stay longer on a cooler day.
Such a great spot! I loved that there was a variety of terrain textures. Mandy is a bit of a scaredy-dog, so I loved her having access to the different feels.
We went in later afternoon and there was a really nice breeze. There were several chair set ups with dog bowls and gallons of water and a bucket of toys—all of which were greatly appreciated.
The space does have a very steep grade, but Mandy delighted in taking a ball up and chasing it as it rolled back down.
This was our first SniffSpot and boy did we love it! Katie was super response and our pups loved the backyard. Lots to explore and plenty to play with. Definitely recommend. We’ll be back!
Host added a canopy chill under! Its great for the humans and the doggos to stay away from the sun
My current foster dog is very reactive and high anxiety. This spot was so great! He ran around, sniffed, explored and he just looked so relaxed doing it. He could enjoy being his happy dog self.
It was a very pretty setting, big enough and secure.
Lovely place! One of my dogs loves lizards and this place was his HEAVEN. Plenty of shady spots to sit and relax, lots and lots of toys and water, everything you need!
Great place, would definitely come back again!
Awesome place to bring your dog to get some exercise and free playtime without being on a leash. Plenty of toys and water provided along with shady areas to sit!
a great time as usual playing and getting dirty! Host has provided a lovely sunshade to the right of the yard & lots of comfy seating - not that my dog rests (or lets me sit) much while here!
This is truly a perfect oasis! Katie provides every thoughtful touch you can think of, including lots of water, toys, a wonderful shade tent, a cooling dog bed, and immediate responses should you need anything. The rocks and trees and lots of things to explore created one of the best afternoons my newly adopted dog and I have had yet. He got to just be a dog. I got to relax and play (and climb rocks)! We absolutely can’t recommend Katie and her Oasis enough! We’ll be back!
Super steep so I recommend wearing closed-toed shoes. There's plenty of water bowls and shaded sitting areas, so it was nice even though it was almost 90° this noon.
Our dogs had a great time here. It is hilly so just be prepared footwear-wise. Our dogs seemed to love the hills, though, and ran around like mad. Spot was easy to find. We went early in the AM so shade wasn’t an issue but there is a shady spot with water for pups and chairs for people. We’ll
What a beautiful place! The landscaping was a treat for both humans and dogs. We took their advice to wear sneakers because of the terrain, so walking down and back up their little hill was fine. Thanks for having us!
There was plenty of space, toys, and water for our pup! He had a blast however he is a tad clumsy and hurt his leg running up the hill as the yards on a slight grade!
Super great area for my pup to explore and run free! Good shaded areas, water provided, & lots of seating options! 10/10 I will be coming back!
This is a wonderful spot to take your dog. One of my dogs is super reactive and he never gets to run free. When we unclipped his leash he was so confused and then immediately started to do zoomies.
Dali’s Desert Oasis is the most fun our dogs have had in a long time! The small trail down to the play area was a little steep so not necessarily recommended for people with disabilities, but if you don’t mind a little trek it’s ABSOLUTELY worth it.
This was our first SniffSpot and we are 100% happy and will definitely be coming back! It is on a hill side so both pup and I got a good workout in, but there are flat areas. There is a toy bin in the center and bowls through out so if you forgot any of those, you’re able to use. My pup definitely enjoyed the toys! The chickens mentioned are on the way to the yard, but very well contained and were not distracting at all. We are very happy with this experience and very grateful!
Love this place!! my husband and I were enjoying the view while our pup wanted to watch the chickens!! Haha mostly because of the 87 degree weather, we’ll be sure to explore on a much cooler day. Will definitely be back!
This space was so much fun! My doggy had so much fun climbing on to all rocks and getting her ball from all the nooks and crannies.
Great area for hyper dogs to run, play hide and seek, etc. Shaded and unshaded areas perfect for hot days!
Great space! Our boys had a great time.
Great spot! Our dog loved playing fetch here and we loved the views.
Our dogs had a wonderful time! They're exhausted!! So much to sniff! There were many places to sit and enjoy the view while the dogs were running around, up and down the hill, having a blast. Would definitely come back.
my hound continues to love this spot. It's a gorgeous natural setting with varied terrain & much for her to sniff. Lately she's into the ball launcher so with hills & boulders to jump around/through she's exhausted after an hour. We're grateful this spot is available minutes from us and for the humans the view cannot be beat!
Such a fun spot. Plenty of space for your dogs to roam. Perfect combo of sun and shade! Will definitely be booking again!
Another great visit
Awesome spot to let ur dog be off leash
This place is HUGE!!! Plenty of hills for crazy labs to wear out! They have water for you and your dog! Plenty of areas for you to sit while my dog gets her crazy out!!! Love it!!
Big backyard, with water & toys provided. My dog loved it.
Always a great time for my pack!
Awesome sniff spot! Tons of areas to run around, water, toys, and even a cooler with extra water/sunscreen/bug spray. Thank you for a wonderful time- our dog is happy and exhausted!
Pups didn’t even last the whole hour. There’s so much to explore. We will definitely be back.
My dogs loved running around, climbing rocks, smelling all the new smells. We were there for 1.5 hours and after the first hour you could tell my dogs were tired! The space is gorgeous with plenty of seating areas and water and bowls were provided which was great. Definitely wear some old sneakers as you’ll get all dusty from walking/running around with the dogs. Would highly recommend!
Property is steep but there is a few flat spots to hang out. The dogs however loved chasing toys up and down the hill though and it got them very tried! Successful day out. Host was very good with communication and very nice. Will go again!
Our dogs had so much fun! Nice big space, and a steep downhill. Water for the dogs was much appreciated!
Great area for dogs to run around, explore, and play hide & seek. Fencing is secure; area is quiet and serene. Definitely going to plan another visit soon!
Our dogs loved it here! They got so much exercise running up and down the hill and climbing all of the rocks. Lots of places to sit for us to watch the dogs and a gorgeous view of Escondido. Plenty of water set out for our dogs!
My dogs are in love with this spot. The iceberg plants allow balls to be hidden which exhausts my dog who had a very sharp sense of smell and likes to pick one ball. While there is a cactus plant, it’s easily avoidable. The dogs love to romp through the bushes and will be very tired for the next week for sure. Bring sturdy shoes and be ready for dusty dogs
Beautiful location with good resting spot at the top of a hill. Wear shoes with some traction. Very steep hill with no real first surfaces to run around in.
Such a great spot and everything was easy and convenient. So glad we got the chance to explore here! My mountain dog loved it.
We had such a great time! It was well fenced. No other dogs to make my reactive dog bark. Katie was super nice a responsive. Lots of water and toys. Fun places for my dog to sniff. We went on a super hot day so my dog wore out quickly but there was shade for him to rest. We will definitely go back but maybe later in the afternoon so it’s a bit cooler. Thanks so much Katie!
Great location, not far off the main highway. My dogs love coming here!
Great place for a high energy dog. So many areas to run. 2 different areas to sit. Convenient area to toss the dog waste. 2 areas with a water bowl and water supply. Would visit again.
We really enjoyed this Sniffspot! Lots of space to explore, cool rocks, lots of chairs in different areas if you fancy chillin' out. Keep in mind that this Sniffspot is pretty steep. There is not much flat land, so good exercise! Wear proper shoes so you don't slip. There were some grassy areas but mostly dirt. We were pleased that the host left us a cooler filled with water bottles, and sunblock, hand sanitizer. We also enjoyed the covered gazebo. The site lists an indoor restroom, but when we asked, the host informed us she wasn't home to let us in, which is fine. We were surprised that a Sniffspot would offer a bathroom anyway.
My mountain-goat poodle had a blast climbing on the boulders. The puppy needs to learn not to climb to the highest point and jump off (we got some great shots of her flying), happily no injuries. We’ll definitely be back.
Really interesting property and lots of space for pups to explore. Katie was responsive and courteous. We had a great visit and would book again.
This is a great spot with fabulous views and a varied terrain. It is quite hilly which gives my dogs an excellent workout. Water bowls and shady spots are distributed around the property. My dogs and I had a great time, and Katie is an accommodating host
Lovely spot with lots things to explore. Our two dogs loved sniffing and running around here. We will definitely be back!
One thing to note is there is a big cactus with spikes that one of our dogs went too close to, and got a few needle stabs, just keep an eye on your dog around that one.
The desert oasis is a lovely property - lots of toys/seating provided!
My dogs had a wonderful time here! The property terrain is sloped and canyon-like so it offered a variety of surfaces and obstacles for the pups to traverse. Lots to sniff and plenty of chairs if humans want to relax while pups play. Lots of water bowls and toys provided! We’ll be back!
Great communication & property. My kids and dogs loved the time we spent today.
Fun spot! Lots of rocks to climb, lizards to chase, and plants to sniff.
Great hilly place with lots of rocks to climb and places to sniff. Even has a little hut for you to relax in.
My dogs loved to explore the area. A little steep for humans but the dogs loved It!
What an *epic* yard! My girls loved the spot - so many sniffs and things to explore. We will be back for sure!
The photos do not do this home justice. My dog and I cannot wait to come back!
Wonderful space! Lots of room to romp and explore!
This place was awesome! Great space for the pups to run and lots of rocks to climb on. My dog had a great time and we didn’t encounter any other dog or people. The neighborhood is very calm and the place was easy to find. Hoomans: be aware that the terrain is steep and irregular so be prepared for it. There are places for humans to sit and relax as well as water and a trash can. Make sure to bring poop bags. We had no issues getting in and out, but there are chickens that are in a secured place near the entrance so if your dog is reactive just be careful. Also, we didn’t have any scare but it’s California so always be aware that you can see lizards and snakes. We’ll definitely go back :)
Beautiful backyard with lots of opportunity to explore for your four legged babies! I love the gazebo too❤️ ty!
We would definitely return! Our dogs loved running around and climbing on the rocks, and watching the chickens (through the fence). there was water (for humans and dogs), trash cans, and plenty of seating areas to sit and watch the dogs run around.
Wonderful spot! The dogs had an absolute blast running around and chasing balls. The humans had a great time sipping coffee and admiring the beautiful view from the gazebo :)
This is a great spot with a variety of landscapes for dogs to explore. As others have noted, it isn't flat and you'll want to be careful entering. I had no issues with my 3 dogs, one who is a tripod. You can tell the host takes pride in their space, there was water, water bowls, other supplies + a variety of seating areas available. My dogs had a great time, I'll definitely be back!
Good directions and appreciated all the water for my pup!! He had a good time.
This was Ana amazing spot to bring our two dogs for some private exploration! So much enrichment was had. As an owner, I was able to completely relax while my dogs played safely, which is not what happens in public spaces. We had everything we needed. I highly encourage everyone to bring their pups here 😊
We visited to help train my dog for off-leash. This turned out to be a perfect spot for our intentions. Also, my dog had a great time exploring and climbing boulders.
Super nice and accommodating host! Our pup loved the space, and we loved the view. This was our first SniffSpot experience and we will definitely be back!
Easy to find and well supplied for humans and dogs. Great spot for active, athletic dogs.
Love the yard. My dog raced around it and explored every nook and cranny. She especially loved chasing the lizards on the boulders.
The owner is very conscientious and provides water and bug spray.
Will definitely visit again soon.
Great space and fully fenced for my hound escape artists! Loved all the extra amenities such as water for the dogs and humans!
Second visit! Such a great spot
Quiet and peaceful spot to let your dog roam around and explore.
Instructions were clear and easy. Chickens are well protected with multiple fences so even my prey driven dogs were distanced enough to be able to leave them alone. The backyard was clean, lots of water bowls, toys accessible. My pups loved running through the ice plant and jumping on rocks. They were exhausted! One thing I'll do next time is bring hiking boots - if you plan on following your pups, some dirt paths down the hill might be a little slippery. We will be back!
Beautiful spot! Lots of nice touches like toys, water, sunscreen 😊
My dogs love this place. They enjoy running up and down the hills and Cash wants to take the toys home. Very gracious host who has thought of everything to make the visit enjoyable.
Super kind people and fun property for the dogs to run around.
Rain or shine, my dog has the best time here!
Beautiful space with room for the pups to roam and play ball.
It was huge! We weren’t expecting it to be this big honestly. Everything was amazing and very well kept. The chickens were an added bonus too! They were so nice and quite so my dogs went up to sniff but then got distracted by literally everything else—great socialization!
My 2 dogs absolutely loved this place! They got to explore on their own without any issues and even said hello to the chickens. Such a fun experience we’ll definitely be back!
A great space! We rented this location due to our dogs being reactive to both humans and animals so sometimes walks can be more troublesome than not.
The chickens didn’t trigger the dogs on our way in or out. We also went on a Sunday morning and the neighbors playing pickle ball didn’t interrupt their adventures.
Overall a great first experience with Sniff Spot and we will book again!
Really quiet and beautiful. It made me so happy to watch my dog explore all the interesting terrain and chase after the ball (which were provided). We will be back! Highly recommend!
it was so BEAUTIFUL!! little to no shady areas, but thats okay because they provided sunscreen, water, AND bug spray! they even had toys for the dogs. the property was gorgeous a d had stunning valley views. my dogs had such a wonderful time chasing the random lizards and smelling everything. thank you for hosting us!!
This is such a wonderful and unique Sniffspot. Our pup LOVED it. There is so much to explore, and so many different things and surfaces to sniff and play around in. She rolled, she climbed on boulders, she sniffed every shrub, and had a blast. There is a bucket with toys, which is really thoughtful. There are places to sit and watch your pup throughout the yard at different locations with water bowls and containers with water, which was great. We booked the spot for 90 minutes and they went by really fast! Sometimes you get to a spot and after 20 minutes, you've seen everything and have problems entertaining your pup the rest of the time. Not here! We highly recommend this spot, it is really great fun and Katie, the owner, is super nice. (Also, we have a long line on Quinnie in the photos but you really don't need one, the yard is secure. We should just have taken it off)
Hank had a great time sniffing alllll da sniffs! It was a little warm out so he really enjoyed rolling around in the ice-plant. He did go back to the top to check on the chickens (fully fenced in their own area) a couple times but it was clear they are used to dogs so he was able to disengage quickly and head back down the hill for more sniffs. We had a great time and plan to be back!
Beautiful spot with a nice mix is shade and sun. The pathways are fairly steep in places so I recommend wearing sturdy shoes. Water dishes are thoughtfully placed around the yard. My dogs had a great time
We loved Katie’s spot! Lots of varied terrain for the dogs to explore and some shady seating under the gazebo with a beautiful view! We’ll definitely be back!
We had a hiccough and coun't make it. The host reached out and was lvely and accomodating.
Water was nice gesture , dogs surely need it while running around with their zoomies and exploring.
We have a rescue dog who is reactive to other dogs, so walks are really hard. We brought him today for the first time and I have never seen him happier. 5/5 ❤️
Our dogs loved running around your yard. The view is beautiful.
This was my first time using Sniffspot. Courage is dog-reactive, so I was concerned about secure fencing, neighbors with pups, and safety. Katie was a fabulous host. Her description and photos of the property and neighborhood were spot on. Courage got to frolick free for the first time, we unintentionally got to practice recall and have a fabulous ending to our 1 year anniversary together. I plan on coming again and an extremely grateful to the host for sharing her land with us.
Awesome place with a ton of space! 10 out of 10
Such a cool spot! The yard is a little steep, so keep that in mind and wear appropriate shoes. The yard had a bunch of places for you to sit while the pups explore. My dogs loved climbing the boulders. There were bowls and water for the dogs, bag of toys, poop bags and a trash bucket. Everything you could need and more! Truly a great 1 st experience. We will be back!
My kiddos had an amazing day, running and sniffing the whole time! Grateful for the water and shaded areas!
This was the perfect place for my dog, (and I). It was like visiting a serene resort. Everything was perfect. A fabulous spot for photo shoots too. Endless views and beauty on 1 acre.
My two fur babies and I loved our trip to this beautiful oasis. The property was well kept and provided everything we needed. I appreciated the simplicity of the arrival process. I would recommend everyone go well equipped with hats or umbrellas as there isn’t much shade(:
Such an amazing yard. Lots of variety (hills, boulders, vegetation), dogs loved running around. Water bowls provided, extra water was very helpful given the amount of running around our dogs did. Cactus had all thorns removed.
My dog loved the awesome terrain and tons of good sniffins. Beautiful space and exactly what we were looking for. The chickens were adorable too. We can’t wait to visit again
We had a good time here! Since we rescued our pup a little over a year ago, I’ve been nervous to let him off leash anywhere but parks and dog parks. I wanted to see how he does off leash in a new environment (similar to what we’ll explore hiking or camping in the future). This spot was great for that! Lots of rocks, slopes, lizards, and pokey plants to stay away from. We were able to use the yard for what we needed and unfortunately had to leave early because our pup doesn’t listen and wanted to be on the left side (where the toxic plants are). We have lots of work to do with his listening skills! Thanks for having us Katie.
Beautiful views and property with lots of space for our dog to run and sniff. A couple of lovely chickens (safely secured from dogs) will greet you on your way in and the entire acre is fenced. Was a lovely experience and we will visit again!
I've been to many sniffspots over the past 2 years, and so far this is my favorite. As the guardian of a scent hound who I suspect is part mountain goat, I'm always looking for places she can safely play and explore off leash. This is a large sloping yard with varying terrain and boulders similar to what one would find out in nature. There are a couple of flat runs that your dog could play fetch. My dog likes to chase the ball but does not do repetitive fetching, so the slope was perfect to chase the bouncing ball downhill.
We had a great time playing "find me" and just racing and sniffing around exploring, natural activities for a scent hound & good for her brain.
There are very well-fenced chickens on the way in that my hound all but ignored after a reward to "leave it."
Host was friendly and communicative, there was a fresh water bowl out and a bucket with a trash liner I'm hoping was for poopy bags.
Not overpriced, a good value to have fun & exercise my girl - we will definitely be back.
Pretty scenery and nice area! However, not really the best fit for our high energy dogs who like to run and play. The yard is a pretty steep decline mostly and there’s a lot of rocks and vegetation (including cacti). We decided to keep our dogs on leash and just walked them around and let them sniff. There were chairs and water for the dogs which was nice.
What a beautiful yard! Just a gorgeous, unique place. My dog loved climbing on the boulders and running around the space. It was a nice big space for playing. To get down to the yard, you do pass by a chicken coop, as the owner mentions in the listing. That part is not fenced off from the rest of the yard. So if your doggie is chicken obsessed they will have a great time returning to the coop to stare at the chickens. 😂. It is just a bit steep to get to the bottom of the yard. There was plenty of water and a bucket of dog toys. The owner was very communicative which I loved.
