What people say about small dog parks around Findlay, Ohio
Easy to find, easy to get into the yard, lots of space to run and play, and no gaps at all in the fence. The host was very responsive and helpful. At one point there was the sound of a neighbor's dog barking a few yards away but you couldn't see them, so if that's a trigger for your pup, just a heads up! It was only for a few minutes.
This is a beautiful yard and complete privacy. My dogs are people and dog reactive and the host took special care to make sure that there would t be any surprise people coming in while we were there. We loved it and will be back.
Easy to find. Easy entry. Very beautiful back yard! Toys for use if needed and a trash can for waste. Fence is secure. Enjoyed our visit and will return soon. Was worth the 45 minute drive for us.
My three dogs and I had a blast! She had a cute sign to greet us. She provided water, toys, treats, doggy clean up bags. It was a calm quiet area! Would totally recommend!
It’s really easy to find. The welcome sign was wonderful and the yard was amazing, they had fresh water for the dogs and provided toys and treats which the dogs loved. It is very clean and has nice thick grass and great seating area. Rocks may be a little rough on the dogs paws if they are soft but they are pretty smooth. Took us a minute to figure out the latch but once we figured it out it was fine. We definitely will be back!
This is an awesome yard! It's a bigger yard. Lots of room to run or play fetch. The hosts had a nice greeting sign with my dogs name. It was a nice touch. They do have water and poop bags. I brought my own but it's really nice of them. My dog had a TON of fun. I recently adopted him. He has a history of abuse and hasn't been socialized. I live in an apartment so walks have really been our only option for outdoors. He gets overwhelmed by daytime walks so we go for them at night. It was wonderful for him to be able to play outside during the day without being overwhelmed. We could hear a few dogs in the neighborhood but he was unfazed by that. I would be cautious if you have a smaller dog. It's a wooden privacy fence so there are gaps at the bottom. My dog is 14 pounds Chihuahua/pug mix Technically he could have squeezed through a few areas if he put effort in but he isn't a risk taker and he was having too much fun playing fetch to care. I don't think a dog bigger then 20 pounds could get through and probably more like 15-16 plus.
Large, clean fenced in yard. Water, waste bags, dog toys, and treats available. One portion of the fence is a little high off the ground, so if you have a dog that likes to escape yards please be aware. Overall wonderful experience and we will definitely be back.
Pup and I both absolutely loved this spot!
The pictures made it very easy to find and be confident we were in the right spot.
The yard is large and well-kept, and even has a fun obstacle to play and train on.
The fence was solid, secure, and blocks the view completely (good for my reactive dog); there were a couple of spots where a very very (toy-sized) pup might be able to squeeze under, so if you've got a small runner, just keep an eye on them (my pup is 16 pounds and wouldn't be able to fit).
Parking in the neighborhood was very easy.
We didn't see any other dogs or people, so my pup was able to sniff, run, and play without distraction or reactivity, and we even were able to work on recall and some other tricks we never get to do off-leash outside.
Really appreciate you opening up your yard to us! We will definitely be back!
Absolutely fantastic. Complementary treats, toys, and water. My pups loved it! Thank you!
Such a beautiful back yard and amazing hosts!!
Very clean, quiet, and secure! Looking forward to going back!
Fantastic spot to take our pup. Clean. Water and toys available. Fully fenced.
Super safe, clean and inviting backyard! The owner provided poop bags, water and plenty of fun toys for my dog to play with! We will definitely be coming back! 🐶🐾
What an amazing space! The grass is green and well taken care of, signage makes it super easy to find, and it’s a huge enclosure. It was easy to navigate to from I-90 and not too far out of the way as a stop to let my dog get some energy out on our trip across the country. Would definitely recommend!
Very clean facility. Nice open area for my greyhounds to run. The fence kept them safe and it was in good condition. There were chairs available for the humans to have a rest while the dogs ran and sniffed. We will definitely be returning.
Very secure fencing. Toys were provided. Water bowl with fresh water. My dog loved the chuck it ball!! Small pool also.
Great place. Will definitely be back.
This was my first time using sniffspot. This place was amazing. The fence was super secure. There was a doggie pool (even though my pooch doesn't like water:) There was also fresh water for Sadie to drink and toys to play with. I liked the chairs in the shade to relax in. Great Place!!
Our 13 year old coonhound loved exploring this huge beautiful property! Everything was super nice. Our dog doesn't swim but the pond looked clean and inviting. This was our first time using Sniffspot and Lauren made us feel very welcome - answering our questions and responding to messages quickly. We will definitely be back!
Although the weather was not in our favorite the spot was super nice! Plenty of room to roam, sniff and play, and my labs LOVED swimming in the pond!
Beautiful property with a super clean pond! Fencing was adequate to keep my girls in, and there were a lot of places to open/close gates to gain access to different parts of the property. There were other dogs on the property. We couldn’t see them, but could hear them when coming and going. Lauren was a super host, very helpful and kind. We can’t wait to come back. Such a great spot in our small area.
What other types of private dog parks are available?
Dog water parks
Many hosts have added water features like pools and/or are nearby lakes or rivers.
While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks are much safer than public dog parks. With Sniffspot all bookings are private for just you and dogs you bring with you and we require all dogs to be vaccinated (or have equivalent titers). All Sniffspot locations are vetted and reviewed by park users so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog. 93% of reviews on Sniffspot visits are 5 stars.
How do I know if a small dog park works for my dog?
Start by applying basic filters, such as fencing and distractions, to find a dog park that works for your furry friends. If your dog doesn't respond to owner commands, you can visit one of our enclosed dog park areas. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our small dog park sites where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby. You can see any park amenities provided, including a park bench, water for dogs or water features such as kiddie pool or water hose. If your dog loves water, you can go to a park with water features, but if they don't love water, you can avoid them. We also recommend reading reviews to check for park maintenance issues and reaching out to the host with any questions. And lastly, of course, check park hours. Many of our parks are open from dawn until dusk.
What are the requirements to bring my dog to a Sniffspot park?
We require that all dogs have basic vaccinations or equivalent titers. We do not allow dogs with a bite history. We require that owners sign our waiver and agree to follow our safety rules. We also require that pet owners follow safety protocols around water features.
Will there be other dogs at the Sniffspot park at the same time as me?
Sniffspot only allows one booking at a time and any host dogs are required to be kept away from the spot during visits. We also enforce 30 min time buffers between bookings.
If you are planning an amazing small dog park party, each Sniffspot park has their own rules regarding special events. Many parks allow doggie birthday parties, training, water parties and other event types. Event organizers need to be responsible for their guests and event organizers should coordinate with the host regarding their fun party. Make sure the park has amenities you need for your party, such as a park with lots of picnic tables with park benches.
