55We had so much fun here! We spent most of the time in the back field and exploring some of the trails. There is endless space to run and play. We also walked the driveway and my dog enjoyed the sights and sounds of the working farm. It is so peaceful and relaxing here. Highly recommend and we will definitely be back!
55So fun! Fields, woods, and landscaped areas give something for everyone. Definitely bring your boots or sneakers for the woods.
55This was our first sniff spot visit and what a wonderful experience. 80 acre woods was a beautiful well kept property. The property offered an opportunity for my pups to relax and explore. The 80 acre woods has a variety of outdoor spaces to enjoy. We will definitely be visiting again soon!
55Lovely farm with lots of space
55We had the absolute best time. This is our favorite Sniffspot in the area. There were tons of things to do on the property. The host was incredible! We hiked about 2 miles and then had a nice long picnic before exploring more and heading out. Such a fun time and nice space! We cannot wait to come back
55So peaceful on a Saturday morning! My dog loves playing ball and entertaining the horses nearby.
55Amazing!! Loved the farm and it was enough space for my pup to run free! Will definitely come again
55Loved this spot! My pups were so so happy being able to explore in a safe environment. If you’re not afraid of bugs & some mud then this is the spot for you! Seeing my dogs be able to just be dogs was so heartwarming. There’s so much for them to explore & smell while gaining confidence. Great training opportunity as well! Can’t wait to visit again!
55Beautiful place we will be back!
55Omg! This place is absolute doggie heaven! My dog loved every minute of exploring and sniffing and running through the field of yellow buttercups! We will definitely be back!

Relaxing oasis in Alexandria

After living in a townhome in Old Town for 20 years with no backyard or outdoor space, I decided to buy a new house. My dogs only exercise was walking on a leash or finding empty dog parks at strange hours. Although my dogs were well-behaved, I observed a lot of negative behavior from pets and owners in city dog parks and wasn’t comfortable letting my dogs mingle there. When I bought this house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to create an oasis for my pets. My landscape architect clearcut 75 feet back into the woods, installed retaining walls to help level the steep slope on the side yard and planted lots of grass to create the perfect backyard. The property is on almost an acre, so the back of the fence is very private with a wooded area. Occasionally, you can see deer on their way to the creek and hear fox behind the fence, although that is usually after 11pm. There is a lot of privacy and nature to enjoy from the patio.The yard is bright and sunny in the morning and shady after 2 or so. Since my yard brings so much joy to my dogs, when my friend told me about Sniffspot, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to share this dog friendly space with the community. There is always ample street parking right in front of my house.  The 6 foot fence is reinforced with chicken wire to keep small dogs in and other animals out. The gentle slope is perfect for fetch to wear out high energy dogs faster. Lots of areas to sniff and explore. The entire yard is dog friendly with no pesticides or toxic plants. Water hose, dog bowl, toys, dog bags and trash can are provided. This yard was created for my dogs so all furniture is pet friendly and the dogs go wherever they want. I do try to keep them out of the fenced part of the garden (where the tacky yard art lives 😂) due to beer traps for the slugs but I don’t freak out when they jump the mini-fence. I don’t want any guest to feel any stress while visiting. Dogs will be dogs and normal dog behavior is expected. There is a fan next to the gazebo for warm days. The fan is plugged into a multi-outlet extension cord and you’re welcome to use both! If you’re into grounding, I never wear shoes when I’m in my yard. The entrance from the street is double gated, like a dog park, to prevent accidental escapes. Enjoy the gazebo and patio with dog beds for relaxing and shade. Surrounded by trees, the birds and fountain offer the perfect oasis to get away from high stress city living. Wednesday late mornings and early afternoons are blocked off for my lawn mowing company. Monday mornings, my dog poop pickup company services my yard. On Mondays, they usually come in the morning, but I don’t have a specific time. If you have a people aggressive dog, you may want to avoid this time since I don’t know when they will actually show up. I do pick up daily but have the service for anything missed as it’s a large yard with 3 dogs to track. If interested in hosting a party, I am open to a group of people and more dogs than the limit states. Send a chat to discuss details.
