Love that the new entrance is slightly further up from the original spot. The host even has bug spray for you, a couple chairs under a canopy, well groomed trails. I definitely recommend this SniffSpot.
The dogs and i had a wonderful time on this great property. They just woke up from being so tired. So fortunate to have this near by.
We have a really nice relaxing walk with our boys Jasper and Juno. They absolutely loved being able to explore and play ball without having to worry. We will definitely be coming back.
Awesome, early evening visit!
We had so much fun here! There’s so much to explore it sometimes feels like you’ll never find the same spot twice
My dog LOVED this adventure! It is like going to an amusement park and there are no crowds. She was able to run and sniff and enjoy herself. Beautiful property! She was exhausted when we left! We will be back!
Very nice place! Clean and the trails were nicely kept! We will be back!
amazing place. lots of area to roam. well kept. dogs loved it. wish lived closer and could go more often.
This place is great! There's so much space for my dogs to run. The golf cart is a great add on if you have trouble getting around or just want to keep up with your dogs as they run. I've never had an issue in the year or so that I've been taking my dogs here!
Thank you for letting Kodi and I explore here! I loved how the property had the option to let Kodi run around in the open field area or sniff and walk around on the wooden trails. Both the open field and the trails were really clean and maintained. At the back end of the property there was a nice picnic table and a container with dog toys/balls if you forget to bring one for your dog. We went on a sunny day, but when it got too hot we walked on the trails which was nicely shaded by the trees. The area was pretty big to let your dog explore. Overall, a great place to bring your dog for some time off leash!
Nice clean, secure area to exercise my two dogs. Very quiet. peaceful area. Thank you for sharing your space
We LOVED this place and will definitely be back! Our 2 dogs ran nonstop. The walking paths were great, as were the toys. Finding the location and parking was simple. Love love love!
Great place! Perfect spot to let puppy explore. The fetch area was a hit with Flora, and I really enjoyed the winding trails. Should have booked a second hour!
This spot was great! So much to explore. Both my pups left exhausted. We will definitely be back.
The dogs loved it! I loved running and walking around the paths with them as well! Clean area, nicely groomed paths and lots of space to run and sniff.
Great spot! Lots of room and different terrain for the dogs to sniff and run.
Wonderful visit as always! The golf cart is a very welcome add on with three large and speedy pups! Thanks again!
Our 3 pups had a blast! There were many different trails to explore and a nice open area to play fetch.
This place is still wonderful and the new entrance is a great improvement I didn’t know what needed. The dogs had a great time today. The weather was perfect. We are so grateful for this resource!!
Nicely groomed trails, fenced in nicely, and just a great space to let our puppy run, smell, and work on recall without distraction
What a great area to bring the dogs for some exercise! There was excellent signage for where to park so no confusion. The trails were excellent and the dogs loved the combination of prairie and woods to sniff and explore. Will definitely be making another visit in the future!
we drove an hour and a half for this spot. even in the rain, my dogs absolutely loved it. so many places to sniff and explore. the paths are very big and well kept. i love the mix of open paths, paths through the woods, taller grass to sniff, and lots of wooded area for the dogs to run around in. i can imagine spending a lot longer there when the weather is nice since they offer so many sitting areas. will definitely be returning!
This was our first experience with sniffspot. I didn't really know what to expect, but I must say, it was a very pleasant experience. This property is beautiful, well maintained and secure. Our rescue dog is not yet comfortable around other dogs, so this was a great opportunity to work with her on some things in a safe space. I thought it was so nice that the host had benches, a picnic table, and even a hammock, along with basket of toys for the dog. Large open areas, nice shades areas, and several little trails. It's a bit of a distance for us to travel, but it was worth it. We will most likely visit again.
My pup loved all the trails and smells! She passed out in the car right after we left! I loved it because I wasn’t worried that she would run off or be bothered by an unknown dog!
This was our first time using any sniffspot and it was amazing. Entering the spot was very easy and the fencing was nice and secure. This was our first time testing our dogs' recall and having the security of a fully fenced in area was a huge comfort. The spot is beautiful, well equipped with toys, water, and bug spray (which was nice as we forgot to bring any) and we will definitely be going back!
I cannot praise this place enough everything was marked. paths were cut. fencing secure. having a dog with anxiety and semi reactive I am so grateful and happy places like this exist. seeing him be able to run and be a dog and have no anxiety abiut running into other dogs or noise or anything was amazing. def will be going back
My girls had a great time exploring the mix of field and wooded paths. Very clean, very quiet, with secure gate and fencing and a waste can at the exit and “some other kid’s toys” available to play with! We’ll definitely be back!
Perfect spot for me and my dog! Trails are well maintained and there is a bucket of toys to choose from to play with while there in case if you forget yo bring your own. Will definitely go again!
What an amazing place! Our dogs had the best time roaming all of the trails. Lots of shade as well as open space. The host was very nice! We wish we lived closer so we could come all of the time!
This was an amazing spot that we will definitely be coming back to! The area was clean and well maintained. My dog loved all the toys and enjoyed playing fetch in the large field.
This is exactly what my dog needs! We used to be able to go to dog parks but then had to stop because he was playing too aggressively. He is a rescue doberman and we are still working on his recall, I'm so thankful to have a place like this to go for him to run free for an hour!
A lovely spot! Our dogs loved the small wooded parts and toys. They slept the whole way home.
Huge spot that was well kept and beautiful. The host was very nice an helpful. Overall great experience, you’ll want to stay longer than an hour!
This is a lovely large space for dogs to roam and run to their heart’s content. Will come again ! Mark the host was very friendly and helpful and clearly loves having guests visit the property.
Henry and Hazel haven’t been to daycare or the dog park in 3 weeks due to Hazel being in heat; let’s just say it’s been pretty chaotic around here, well and loud; between the constant barking and my yelling. This Sniffspot was PERFECT!! It was wonderful; lots of space, beautiful scenery, easy to locate, clean, and easy to maneuver. The dogs really needed this; I really needed this, the house is quite ❤️. Hazels spay next month can’t come soon enough!
Once again a great time with our 2 labs. Such a beautiful property, well kept trails, and just a perfect place for a Sunday funday activity.
The field was nice and big! It was easy to navigate! Our corgi had a blast! He definitely loved the shade and trails! Planning to come again soon with his besties!
Thank you for sharing your amazing property with us again! Always clean, secure and fun!
This spot was perfect! There were several trails and so much space for my dog to run and play. We enjoyed it so much.
Wonderful space, tons of room for my dog to venture around!
Marco and Polo had the best time today.
What a gem this place.
Thank you so much!
Peter and Jackie
Absolutely worth the drive! So much room to explore and play all on our own!
Our dogs had a blast! Great location. Wide open spaces. Shady well kept trails.
Henna and Tucker found the only mud hole…and were in heaven. They had to visit again before we left. Great times.
Great spot! The dogs couldn’t have been more happy to be there. Easy to get to and really easy to follow signs regarding where to park, etc., so many nice trails to wander down in addition to a huge field explore and play fetch. Can’t wait to go back!
We had a great time, we always do!
Awesome... just Awesome!!!!!
Perfect spot to run the hounds! A mix of sun and shade. We carried water because it was extra hot on our visit, but we found the frog pond and the dogs LOVED it! It was clean, saw no garbage or poop. We saw a deer, but the dogs didn't 👌🏻 The dog kennel said hello, and our dogs ran over despite off leasing them a ways away from even the parking area. Fortunately our dogs did come back. Didn't hear them again until we loaded up at the end, but overall, not an issue. It was a great place to work on recall. We were driving from Madison to Duluth and this was a great place part-way, not too far off the interstate, to let the dogs run during a long car ride.
Such a beautiful spot to enjoy for both two and four legged creatures!
Bella has never been happier than the hour she spent at Michel's Sniffspot! The variety of mowed trails and taller grass in the field, and the trails through the woods made for lots of fascinating smells, textures, and things to explore. I think her absolute favorite part, though, was the mudhole in the trail just south of the field. Bella is white, but she thoroughly enjoyed becoming a mud-puppy! When she emerged from the mudhole, she immediately rolled around in the grass, in complete ecstasy! So tonight, she's a kind of a light brown dog with lots of green grass stains. And we don't mind a bit. She has never been happier or more beautiful! If you're particular about your vehicle (which you probably aren't if you love dogs), bring a container of water and some towels to spiff up a bit before hopping back in for the ride home. The fence around the 20-acre field is in great condition. This is the first time we've allowed Bella completely off-leash outdoors, and we felt 100% confident doing so because the fence is so obviously well-maintained. We used the golf cart and that enabled the slower among us to keep up with Bella's exuberant running. In every respect, a 100% wonderful experience!
Our pups had a blast! Will do again!
This was our first Sniffspot reservation. I loved that the property was fenced in. I have a puppy who is learning and I felt safe letting him play and run around. The mowed trails were wide enough for my two daughters to throw a football back and forth.
A sunny, beautiful day for my “boys” to run & romp at this gorgeous Sniffspot!
Thanks Sniffspot! The girls only lasted half of their hour but I have never seen them more happy! It was so nice to let them sniff and smell and run around! And thanks for the bug spray..we brought some but forgot it in the truck so finding some at the benches saved us. We will be back!
Easy to find and a wonderful place for dogs to run free! We loved the big open field and the well-maintained trails. Will definitely be back!
This was perfect for my Puerto Rican foster dogs, that are used to running free, and my hound who loved smelling everything. It was beautifully laid out and provided them with a great hour of running and sniffing. Thank you!
Beautiful fields with so much room to roam! This was our first Sniffspot visit and it was just so perfect for my sweet girl Shelby. After about 10 minutes I felt comfortable enough to let her off leash and she had the time of her life. I didnt realize until the end that I didnt park exactly where I was supposed to and I apologize for that, next time we’ll have it down! Thank you for a great experience!
My dogs had a great time, they loved the shaded trails
Been bring my dogs here atleast once a month now for awhile. Always an awesome time! We were surprised to come across a "chuck it" with a ball on the chairs on the far end. I don't know if it was left there by the hosts or previous guests but was a nice touch for my one dogs that loves fetch!
Our 3 dogs and toddler all had a blast! We brought our Great Dane mix, small terrier/poodle mix & 5 month old whippet puppy. The different areas (wooded, field, different trails) was fantastic for them to explore through. We took advantage of the space and natural distractions to practice recall while also letting us all have extra fun! We're looking forward to many more adventures here!
The 2.5 hours we spent here was definitely the best afternoon of my dogs life so far. She loves tearing through woods and exploring, and she had SO MUCH to sniff out here! And the golf cart was definitely worth the $25; we raced through the trails and up and down the field until she was dead tired (a big accomplishment)
Definitely worth the 2 hour drive from Minneapolis and we will be back!
We had a great time here! Easy to find, clean, well-maintained trails, and the owner was very friendly. Our dogs loved it!
10/10 recommend it was so much fun abs my dogs LOVED it, definitely will be coming back! The golf cart is an amazing amenity!
What a slice of heaven! Our goldendoodle, Ruby, had the greatest time of her live and I think the kids had even more fun. We had an amazing afternoon and can't wait to be back. Really nice host... And I definitely recommend the golf cart for added fun.
Great spot to take the dogs, let them be dogs without having to worry about outside influences. It’s secure and the trails are a nice little walk around the area. I keep coming back because my dogs love it.
It seems it it finally spring! We had a great time!. My dogs and I love this place all year long.
Such a great place! Very clean & my dogs had the best time running through the trails.
Great walk on a gorgeous spring day! So grateful for this resource!!
What a great place! Actually our first sniff spot but something tells me it will be hard to beat. Well fenced as advertised so dog was free to roam and humans got to enjoy a lovely walk in the woods!
Always a great spot!
We loved our time here! So amazing!!
My friends and I took 11 dogs out here to play and it was fantastic! They loved the open field and the trails! Owner was super nice and accommodating to our large group!
Awesome place for an active dog! We took a Dalmatian, Great Pyrenees, and a Husky here for 2.5 hours and they had a blast. When it was time to go, the Dalmatian was still wanting to coach with the golf cart!
Very nice maintained trails. A chuck-it is a must for the fields. The dogs really enjoyed their time.
We enjoyed the sunny spring trails with our pup. Always a happy time for all of us.
We were a letting confused about where to park and I think we drove in too far. But our boy loved it!
My pups had a great time! Lots of room to run and explore.
Love this place :-)
Amazing property. My Brittany named Banks had a blast.
Always so much fun for my dogs. They really enjoyed the nice weather today!
Great space! The dogs loved it.
They have great trails throughout the area both wooded and field, and the hosts were super friendly! My pup especially loved it, will definitely be going again.
Wonderful, as always!
Awesome location to bring your dog. Especially to practice recall and play fetch.
Beautiful large area for our dog's first visit. She enjoyed sniffing and prancing through the snow. There was a well-cleared trail in a loop through the open field which was greatly appreciated. The field was clean and secure. We would love to come back again!
Always a great time. The trails are well groomed and it is an easy spot to get in and out of easily.
Beautiful space! The snow along the main paths was nicely packed down, and walking through the woods was gorgeous. Arrival and entry was seamless. This was the first time we were able to let our new pup off-leash to see how she did! It was the perfect spot to do so.
My dogs loved being able to run and sniff off leash. Huge open area and alot of trails going in and out of the woods
Beautiful property, great trails through the woods. Convenient access off the interstate.
Great spot to let our girl roam and have a blast without worry. We have fun too!
Awesome place and very safe for the dogs. We will definitely be back.
I love coming here to let my dog run!! A wonderful spacious area that let’s him zoom around with no worries!!!
Love this spot! If you don’t have four-wheel drive though, you should probably only go in the summer :)
The dogs LOVED breaking trail in the snow today!
Wonderful spot. It’s nice to have a large fenced area for my pup to run around in. No worrying about her running off too far!
Always a good time. The trails and fence are well maintained. My girls had so much fun sniffing, running and exploring. So glad to have this within driving distance!
My dog and I had the whole place to ourselves. The trails are well maintained. I love that the entire area is fenced so he has a safe place to run free.
This was so great! Nice trails! Definitely worth the drive from Eau Claire.
great place, very clean, trails and paths well kept!
This was a fantastic place to let our pups run! We added the golf cart and brought our bike and had 3 hours of fun. I can assure you I had some tired fur babies when we left. The owner was friendly and kind. Would highly suggest this for anyone who is interested!
Even fun in the snow!
Great spot! Trails were well maintained and the dogs got plenty of run time.
Most enjoyable first visit to Sniffspot! We will most definitely be back with our dog, Pepper!
Had a great time with all the dogs. The paths are wonderful and well groomed to go on a little hike around the land. Will be coming back again!
Fantastic time and the pups had a blast!
HUGE!!!!! so much fun!!
Today we had our first visit and had a blast! Clean trails to ride/run on. Overall very nice spot!
Exactly as described. Both of our dogs loved it! Open field and trails through the woods for lots of variety. Will definitely be back.
A perfect place to break a really long work day up with a romp with my dogs and their BFF. Trails look amazing and always maintained incredibly. Not many know just how much work trails on a property are to keep free of fallen trees, mowed and maintained. It’s a never ending task! Thank you M & M!
Great spot to take your dog. Plenty of room to run, nice trails, and nice blend of woods and open area.
Great space for our dogs! Instructions for access and use were easy to follow.
Wonderfully groomed trails through the woods and field. Fall is a beautiful time to visit. We have 2 exhausted and happy pups!
Great spot! We added the golf cart and our dogs really enjoyed running the acreage. It was a welcome break from traveling north. Will visit again if we are able.
Lovely human and wonderful piece of land. My dogs loved being able to just be dogs
This was our first Sniffspot we visited and had a great time! Our pup Reggie loved exploring the area and it was a great way to start our off leash training with him. I would highly recommend coming here to let your dogs explore!
Great place to let our two greyhounds wear themselves out! Great trails!
Shaggy and I had a lovely jaunt! The property is beautiful and well-maintained, and I had no difficulty finding it. It took me a second to figure out the gate latch but I got it! I kept Shaggy on his long line, as his nose is better than his recall skills, and he’s black and super fast with bionic little jumping legs. He was perfectly happy with that! Great spot, thank you!
We LOVE this place! Our 2nd time here. We drive 2 1/2 hrs to get here and it is soooo worth it. We booked it for two hours and our 2 dogs ran for the full 2 hours. It is such a beautiful spot and so well taken care of. The paths through the woods are great. I got great exercise walking around and around the paths. My husband has a hard time walking so we rent the golf cart the owners offer and it is so fun & helpful. We really appreciate it. We look forward to coming back this winter.
An hour is almost too much! My dogs are so excited when we get there. They run and jump and play. They are almost too tired to get back in the car after. A trip to this Sniff Spot is always money well spent!
Owner met us at the gate and gave us the lay of the land. Friendly & helpful! Great experience!
Beautiful fields and trails. Thoroughly enjoyed having so much space to stretch our legs!
We couldn’t have been happier. Beautiful spaces, well-maintained trails, amenities, and an exhausted dog at the end of our hour. The host is gracious and generous with plans for the future like a spot for dogs to swim. Probably the very best day my dog has had since I adopted him.
The boys and I really enjoyed walking with our dog on your property. Such a great idea. We will be back.
The property was amazing! Brought my 3 Vizslas and a Aussie puppy along. We rented the golf cart and really let them run! It was amazing. Only wish I would have scheduled 2 hours. One was just not long enough. Hosts were great as well!
Lovely area & a wonderful thing to share your property. Thank you for welcoming us
Well kept area, so much sniffing in long grass, short grass, trees. Fantastic.
Very nice space.
Such a great place to visit with the Labradors gals! It is guaranteed to wear them out physically and mentally. Lots of sniffing to be done!
Wonderful area for pups to run! Our first time here, we pulled through the field gate and was met by a lady (owner) who explained the area to us. We shut the gate to secure it and unloaded our pups. They ran the fields and woods all by themselves! The paths were groomed well and one side had shade and our dogs loved it. We walked a couple of trails in the woods as well. Great sniff spot and will be back for sure. Fall and winter will be a place for us to take them too.
100% worth the drive from MPLS! This is an incredible space. We had so much fun walking the trails, practicing recall and enjoying the gorgeous woods and fields.
A large place to play which is well managed!
It’s a little confusing to find the gate and parking spot. Take the first driveway, go past the semitrailer on the left and go to the right through the gate to the parking area. Shut the gat behind you.
This place it the best. Good variety of groomed trails and beautiful view. My dog love it! Well worth the cost. So grateful for this resource!!!
Absolutely wonderful place. We’ve never seen our dog so happy! Highly recommended to anyone thinking of visiting. Will be there again soon!
This place was amazing. Exactly as advertised. I also liked the signage telling you where to enter and park. It was a great place to play fetch with my dogs. Highly recommend it.
Our puppy had an amazing time! We will be back soon.
We’ve been here several times and the dogs love it every time.
Beautiful 20 acres! Open areas for sprints and zoomies. Trails for shade on hot days too.
incredible place I will be back.
We all loved our time at the Fairchild dog park!! So much room to run. Great trails through the woods. I put on about 4 miles walking so can only imagine how many miles the dogs put on. We rarely saw our Fox Hound. She just ran and ran smelling every tree and bush in the place of which there are many! Our little low rider needed a few breaks :) We did take advantage of the golf cart rental for my husband who is disabled. it was awesome! What a great thing to offer. it really helped us out. Truly i cant compliment the spot enough. we drove 2 1/2 hours to get there and we will definitely be visiting again. i highly recommend. Your dogs will be so happy and tired :)
Absolutely perfect! Made a quick stop while driving up to Minnesota and it was just what my dog needed!
great spot with beautiful trails! Peaceful morning walk for the dogs and myself!
Huge area, secure fence and great for pups who want to run. Definitley off the beaten path.
What a wonderful place! The area is clean and mowed/maintained immaculately. Absolutely lovely field to play with my doggies, and of course they adored it. The signage is so helpful, hoping to rebook soon! Thank you so much for opening your grounds to us, it was a magical afternoon.
Love the sniff spot! Our hound loves running out and sniffing and it’s nice to know she can’t go off in a hunt of her own where she’s not safe!
great as always! our pack will be back!
Very nice area! Just be prepared for ticks :)
Great experience! The place was easy to find and had good signage about where to park. Wonderful land and all fenced in. I'm looking forward to booking often!
Another great play time thanks not sure if my last comment saved so conventions again just in case
Perfect Mother's Day outing! Dogs ran the whole time, kids chased the dogs, beautiful day, everyone was more tired when we left 😊 thanks!
We always enjoy bringing our dogs to this property. They love to fetch and we can chuck the ball a long way here.
Large, clean, and well maintained. Theres a large area to throw the ball and nice trails to walk. We had a lot of fun!
Perfect spot to let your dogs roam!
Nice place for dogs that have good recall
Great experience. very welcoming!
Pups loved it!
Repeat visitors! Our dogs love coming to this spot.
I brought our 3-month old Golden Retriever puppy to this Sniffspot today. He had a great time with all the smells and sights. It would be fun to add another dog to romp with. So much room and well-maintained trails. I highly recommend!
Perfect spot for the furbabes. Open field and wooded trails. Even more excited about the half price for additional dogs after the first dog. Everyone should do this. I mean, you are renting it by the hour, doesn't make a difference to them of its one dog or 8 dogs. :) Thank you for sharing your 20 acres.
absolutely fantastic! our pups have never ran so hard for so long, hours later and they're still laying around napping!
This was our first sniff spot location and we loved it. The directions were easy to follow and the location was great. My girl is a little reactive ans although we did hear the dogs from the kennel - we parked as instructed and there were no issues. We have a long road trip ahead and this was a perfect stop for her to explore freely. Thank you.
Really great space! Features woods and an open field area. The trails were awesome and very well maintained. It’s a nice private area to let your dogs do their thing. Has a fence all the way around about 4 ft high so felt very secure.
Great amount of space for your dogs to sniff around and run! Nicely fenced in helped me not worry where they went!
After a rainy day, the road leading onto the property was muddy and a little difficult in a car. If you had a truck you’d be fine!
The spot was clean and well maintained. It was a perfect place for us to walk and play fetch! We will definitely use it again.
Nice well maintained trails, quiet, and lots of room for our dog to run.
Amazing place for my dogs to get some off leash time without the stress of a dog park. Thank you!
This Sniffspot is wonderful. Whether you like walking in the woods or prefer great open spaces this Sniffspot delivers in an awesome way. My dogs love the freedom to run and explore and I love knowing that they are safe, as well as happy!
Our dogs had a great time running around in the spring weather. Trails were in normal spring condition nothing impassable just muddy and icy in spots so bring good boots. This was our first time using sniff spot and we loved it. Hope to come back in the future as parks get busier with the warmer weather. Loved the open areas for fetch and sniffing trails around the field for running! Thanks for providing such a great space.
Great place to play fetch in the big center field and hike the 20 acre loop!
This was my first time visiting. I brought my two dogs and they had so much fun! It was a beautiful day and we had a lot of fun walking along the main trail. We will be back to do some more exploring on the wooded trails.
Almost 50 degrees & not too much mud made for a super visit!
My girls had so much fun. The mix of field and woodland was perfect! The trails are great, well maintained.
Snow-cleared trails perfect for a senior dog with orthopedic challenges! So much to enjoy here with field and woods access. Success in four exercised Labradors!
Awesome workout hiking in the snow. Quixote & I will sleep soundly tonight!
Great place to go and let your dog(s) run free. We had a great time there!
We had a great experience and our dogs loved it! Plenty of room to explore, sniff, run, and have fun. The directions to access and enjoy the property were easy to follow. The sled for photos was adorable and the toys available to use were a nice added touch. However, our dogs just liked exploring so we didn’t have to use the basket of goodies. We will definitely be back!
Loved it - Jack was thrilled to have so many different places to "hide" from me! We managed 3 miles according to my tracking app!
This spot was a great stop for our 4 large dogs (3 shepherds, 1 lab). There was a large, groomed open center of property surrounded by woods. Each wooded side were plenty of snowy trails to enjoy. It was especially picturesque on our visit. Our dogs ran and ran until they had expended all of their energy and slept like babies all the way home. This would be a great spot for training, fetching, or even a pooch party. We loved it and will return soon.
Love this SniffSpot! The entrance is easy to find and the property is amazing. My dogs and I had a great time!
Enjoyed our winter walk
Our 3rd time- our dogs are excited to come, they were much more comfortable this time and explored more, were very curious about the dogs that lived there today (we had to call them away from the gate at least 2-3 times- sorry!! They wanted to meet your pups!) Our recall is getting so good! Great practice. My husband had the day off and our kids were in school- it made a nice little hiking date :)
Thanks for the run!!
My dog’s had so much fun exploring the trails, all were groomed. Super fun! Easy directions on how to get there. Perfect day! 😊
This was our first visit and we all LOVED it. What a beautiful location with well cleared and groomed trails. My two labs ran so much they have been sleeping all evening, waking up just long enough to eat supper. Directions were perfect making it easy to find. We will definitely be back! Thank you!
Love this place! 2nd time, it truly is a hidden gem. The dogs can be dogs and run and sniff- my kids feel like they are adventurers in the woods. Great place to work on recall!! I send my kids off in the woods with treats and when they are ready- they call the dogs to run them- I call them back- and so on. Tired dogs, tired kids. Win-win!
It was a good workout for us both! Plowed drive & parking area made our entrance & exit worry-free.
Great walking trails. My puppy was so happy being able to have so much room to run.
Another great visit!
Love all the trails and combination of both trees and open field for the dogs to run in
My dog and I had a great time! The trees were so beautiful with the frost. All of the main trails were plowed which was nice as well. I also really appreciate the scheduling flexibility, I can always find a time that works for me!
Super nice to have the “runways” cleared with the snowplow. My sighthound & I both appreciated it
Thank you! What a great place! Nicely groomed trails, clean and private. We will be back!
Beautiful Christmas walk!
We had a great time as always!
Trails were well-maintained. We always enjoy our time here!
Pulling your car down past the garden area to park keeps the kennel dogs quieter.
A really great space. We let our dog explore on her long leash for a bit first to get the lay of the land before letting her run free. Lots of trails as well as open space to play fetch.
Always fantastic. Grounds so well kept!
Well maintained trails and beautiful clearing! The woods are gorgeous! My dog and I had a great time exploring. Really appreciated the tennis balls/chuck it launcher that were on the bench at the end of the field.
Gorgeous day for a walk in the woods. Well-maintained trails.
Trails were clear & open for a great hike (me) & run for my dog.
This is such an amazing location for off leash sniff walks! I will definitely be renting again in the future.
Awesome place. Lots of beautiful land and toys for fetch provided
Another nice day for hiking.
I wasn't actually there on wed 11/18. There was a glitch in scheduling-I was trying to schedule for a different day/time, but since it put me in for an hour later I couldn't cancel. Michel was very understanding and SniffSpot support was great as well. I didn't have to double pay and was able to book my reservation for what I wanted
Loved the whole experience! Easy to find, directions were on point. Clean, peaceful & exactly what my anxiety ridden Dobie needs. We will be back!
This was perfect for my dogs. I have three dogs all very different ages and confidence levels. They all loved this Sniff Spot. Will definitely be returning
Awesome property, my pup loved it
Cleared trails made for an easy hike in the woods.
Our pup had a blast running and exploring the trails!
Such a lovely location, the dogs and humans all had such a blast!
A lovely place to spend a few hours! Many great trails, lots of space for the dog to run. It’s so nice not to worry about other people, dogs, vehicles, etc. I’m able to let my dog run free and explore without any worries. Visiting this SniffSpot is such a treat. I usually book for 2-3 hours.
Beautiful fall walk in the woods
The field area was loaded with especially good smells and the woods were even more fun without the summer thick understory.
Awesome fenced in lot with different trails and an open grass space for fetch! I was unable to attend a reservation and the owners gave me a coupon to reschedule with them! Place is well kept and toys are provided, if you don’t bring your own. My pup loved it and I enjoyed walking the mowed trails. Will come back!
So fun! This was our first time there- and we will definitely come back. I had our two hounds and two young kids. The trails were nicely cleared and plenty of space to run!
Absolutely beautiful off leash walk through woods and fields. My do had a blast and we did too. Very relaxing way to spend quality time together. I will definitely make this a part of my off leash routine. Thank you for making it available!
Loved our hike in the snow!
We had a great time. The dogs loved exploring the different terrains..fields and woods. The area was clean and easy to find. I would highly recommend it. I'm so glad we went.
The grounds have been beautifully cared for and maintained. Really appreciate you guys!
Another amazing fall walk (for me) and run for my dog.
Kya always loves spending time at this SniffSpot.
A nice walk for me & an excellent run for my Silken Windhound.
Gorgeous weather and a fantastic time letting my Silken Windhound really stretch out and run.
Large open area with wooded trails on the perimeter.
Great open space with woods surrounding. Awesome for our dogs who can’t go to the dog park. They had a blast. Bring bug spray!
The owners are so great, and make such an effort to keep the grounds maintained. This is clearly a labor of love with not much financial gain.
This was our fifth(?) time utilizing this amazing piece of land for our pup. We only stayed a short while time because it was really hot and humid that day, but we still enjoyed it just as much as always. Our dog is always SO happy to come here and run around free in the woods and fields. Such a great deal and great hosts!
We try to get our pit bull here every six weeks or so. She’s giddy every time we visit and burns off a lot of energy
Wonderful experience with my dogs. Seeing them run off leash and explore the terrain so happily brings so much joy.
Thank you so much. Sage is so happy to run and stretch. I love the wildlife! We will be back once the heat goes away!
It was a humid day, so the wooded areas were nice for shade. It was a bonus to have the wildflowers blooming!
They loved it! Especially the little pond!
Lots of open space to play fetch and let dogs run! Nice wooded and shady trails for walking. There are even little benches to rest on. Fully fenced makes this a perfect spot for reactive dogs or dogs that aren’t bomb-proof.
The dogs give it 8 paws up!
Lots of shaded area, open area, variations in the landscape. We will be back!
We are repeat customers and our pup Ellie LOOOOVES this spot. She likes to immediately sprint from the car and gallop down the nicely mowed and maintained pathways. It's a very spiritual experience for us.
Beautiful huge area with plenty of room to run and sniff! I booked two hours and we had a great time and will definitely be back again! The only thing to be aware of is that there is a kennel of dogs at the far end of the property who barked roughly half of the time. There's no way for the kenneled pups to see your pup, and my dog didnt seem to care about their barking at all, but if you have a pup that doesn't like other dogs barking, it's just something to note!
Never disappointed with our visits, and our dog absolutely loves running herself silly in the woods.
We love this Sniff Spot. Thank you to Michel for making it available. So nice to have both woods and open space for a dog to play and explore.
The trails were clear and all open. We enjoyed the perfect weather for an hour of outdoor play.
My dog sensitive pitbull mix, Chester, and I regularly visit this location, and have been there in all four seasons. We have a ball! The owners have done such a great job of maintaining the grounds, it must be a lot of work to remove fallen trees from ice storms, etc. on the trails. Really grateful to Michel and Mark for this wonderful relaxing getaway for both of us.
Perfect weather for our walk.
So, so cool! Worth the drive! Dogs can be a little noisy, so if your dogs are reactive, keep that in mind. Beautiful, fun place to take your dogs.
It's just a great lot and experience. There is a big center field surrounded by private tree lines and fencing. Lot's of great sniffs and easy to enter and leave.
A great place to run the dogs!
Great spot for dogs to run around! We walked the paths and the dogs loved getting some good sniffs. We also brought a Chuckit and used the big open field for fetch. Our dogs can be dog reactive, but the spot was so big that the dog kennel near the entrance were not an issue. We'll be back!
I love this Sniffspot. It's worth the drive from Minneapolis for us. Makes me want to move to the country and have 20 fenced acres for my dog. Perfect size for a few laps or traverses of the many options -- open field or woods -- in 2 hours.
My sighthound loved both the long area of open field for leg-stretching sprints and the wooded trails for new smells and wildlife. We both returned to our hound hauler (minivan) tired and happy. We will be back!
We will use this spot again. The long open field with some mowed, some not, gave us good visibility of the dogs, yet lots of great field conditions for them to explore. The wooded areas around the outside were good for a change of scenery and a chance for the dogs to cool off.
We returned for a second visit, this time without the snow on the ground. Another great session with our dog.
Beautiful land and easy walk. A few downed trees need to be cleaned up. Our dog loves this place.
We drive 2 hours from the Twin Cities to visit this Sniffspot. This was our second visit. My dogs wear GPS collars because they can jump fences easily, but this space is so big and open they have plenty of room to run. They love coming here and I love watching them run together. My old man can't go to dog parks and is dog selective, so this is a treat for him to run and explore without unknown dogs.
Wonderful! The dogs loved it and so did I. Can’t wait to go again!
Awesome mix of trees, open field, and trails. Well kept up. Easy to get to.
This spot was awesome! The host has paths even with snow so they were easy to walk. Great spot to work on our come when called. Huge field for my dog to run.
Great place! Wide open in the center of the land for sprinting and bounding through tall grass. Wooded on the edges with trails, sniffs, and trees to jump. Highly recommend - we'll be back!
I loved that there were both shaded woody areas and open field areas. This is such a perfect area for dog exercise! Super grateful for this opportunity for my sweet sensitive boy Chester who never gets to run!
Beautiful location and great exercise for both of us. We will return.
Stopped here with my reactive pup twice—once on the way from Chicago to Minneapolis and once on the way back. It was such a beautiful piece of land and my pup had SO much fun. She was so happy! She chased a bunny and a turkey! Definitely worth the trek off the interstate and the money. Owners were very kind and helpful. If you have a very reactive dog, be aware the owners do run a kennel on the property and you may have some dogs barking. It only happened once when we were there the first time, and only as we were leaving, but wanted others to be aware. The rest of the time was quiet and peaceful and such a treat! Definitely recommend.
Beautiful area with a nice balance of woods and open fields. The entrance is a bit tricky to find and that's the only reason I didn't give it a 5 rating. This is a new site and I am certain the entrance identifier will be resolved soon. Owners are super nice and very accommodating . My dogs thoroughly enjoyed their time here.
Our dog Molly had a wonderful time at this sniff spot and so did I. Lots of open space to play catch and beautiful wooded areas for walking and exploring. It is Spring and the ground is wet so boots are a must and the road in is also muddy. It is a ways out but worth the drive.
This is a wonderful place for my dog to run without his harness and muzzle on. He has a bite history so his social life is limited to humans only at the moment. Really grateful for this place! ♥️
This was a great spot! The dogs loved it and had plenty of room to run!
Really enjoyed our visit! It was great to be able to let my dogs out of the car and explore with them without worrying about running into other people or dogs. The kennel dogs will bark when you are near the entrance to the spot, but otherwise they are quiet and the property is peaceful - there is plenty of room to roam. We will be back!
Fantastic! Loving these warmer days. Thanks for putting out the one horse open sleigh!
I loved this property! It's a great size for a few loops in 2 hrs. Such a comfort that it's completely fenced and so nice to have a mix of woods and open space (would be awesome for epic retrieve games). As the property owner notes, their vizslas will be barking when you are near the entrance; they were completely out of view, though, and not in danger of interacting with your dog. Depending on where you're at with work on reactivity this could be a great opportunity for safe exposure or a problem.
We are regulars and we love it!
Great sniff spot. :)
This place is awesome! Nice trails for walking and TONS of space for the dogs to sniff and run. I’ll definitely book again. Fantastic!
Wonderful experience! Property well kept, though I’m sure it will take a lot of work to clear the trails of fallen branches...not a problem for us to navigate around them though!
It was a great spot to run my dogs.
We had such a great day today at this Sniff Spot. It's our fifth time here; first time in the snow. So pretty and such good exercise for Kya! And the little sleigh is an outstanding setting for photos! I so appreciate that the property is fenced all around.
Outstanding! Such a beautiful property. Chester and I come frequently and love it.
It's fully enclosed with a great combination of open space, tall grass sections, and wooded area. There are dogs in kennels near by that were great for us to do some training on desensitizing Ellie by edging her away and easing her back closer. It was easy to let Ellie off leash and she was very stoked to be able to just roam free as we walked the acreage. She just had exuded happiness and confidence. It was a great experience for us.
This was my second time visiting this space, so I'm not sure if I'm supposed to review again. But it's just a perfect space for my dog. I took off of work on the expected last warm sunny day of the season to enjoy a comfortable walk, and it was absolutely perfect. So worth a trek from Minneapolis.
On a recommendation for our trainer, my wife and I took our dog, Princess, here so she could run around with no worries. It was a great experience for all of us. The setting is beautiful, in the countryside about 25 miles south of Eau Claire (so it does take a bit of effort to get here). The drive is worth it, though. A large open field, flanked by stands of trees, which gave Princess plenty of room to run and explore. It can be a bit difficult in the snow, although snowmobile tracks create a bit of a groomed trail so we didn't have to wade through the snow to keep up with Princess. The trip accomplished out goal of giving our dog some uninhibited exercise, and she ran herself ragged. We definitely will return and would recommend to anyone who has an active dog who needs some room to romp around and explore.
