    We had such a good time this morning. The fenced in area was great for lots of rounds of fetch with both dogs. After we played in the fenced area, I took the dogs to the pond area. One explored safely off-lead while his more impulsive brother took in the sites and smells on-lead. We will definitely be back and hopefully have time to stop at the store afterwards!

    This spot was great! The fenced area is large, clean, and secure. The pond was a blast. The only downside is that I couldn't find a trash can. We drove home with poop in the trunk 😅

    Host replied: So glad you and your “pack” had a good time today. We keep a trash bucket at the concrete pad where the chairs are located. The last storm winds blew it over and cracked it. I had not replaced it yet. We have another trash bucket at the equipment shed in first door. Hope you’ll return despite of this. Thanks for visiting today!

  • Heather B., Jul 16, 2023

    This was a great place to have a quick play session. I look forward to exploring more next time.

  • Jessica W., Apr 2, 2023

    We had a great time here spending time exploring around the pond and also in the large fenced in area. We will definitely be back!

  • Emilee E., Feb 4, 2023

    This is a great spot! Large enough to run, fenced in, and despite all the rain wasn’t very muddy. I’ll definitely go back.

  • Angie W., Jan 29, 2023

    Everything is amazing! The property was just as described… so much to explore, pond, trails, field, fences area. We can’t wait to come back. We will definitely be frequenting this amazing sniff spot. And the hostess was super friendly and helpful and welcoming! She left us alone but we had questions and she was available quickly which we appreciated very much.

    Host replied: Thank you! It was my pleasure meeting you and your friends…especially the pups! This spring you need to bring a picnic! The pond is my favorite place to hang out with the dogs.

  • Emilee E., Jan 29, 2023

    Great place for the dogs to roam and enjoy the outdoors. Beautiful fenced area. Will explore more the next time!

  • Irene Z., Jan 7, 2023

    Cristy was an amazing host and the Sniffspot was amazing- beautiful grounds and lots of fun for my fetch loving lab!!

  • Bobbi P., Dec 30, 2022

    Excellent property! This is hands down the best sniffspot in the area. You can tell the owners take exceptional care of the grounds. The pond is one of the cleanest that I have ever seen on a private property. We didn't use the gated play area but it looked amazing. Unfortunately we were unaware of deer hunting season but we can't wait to explore the trails once that ends. Thank you for giving my dogs the opportunity to play like royalty!

    Host replied: Thank you for such a sweet review💖🐾. We’re happy to share our place with you and your pack! Enjoy your weekend!

  • Kyle L., Nov 26, 2022

    Our favorite Sniffspot! Beautiful setting and loads of space.

Where Dogs can be Dogs

This is a very quiet place on a country road where your dogs can be off leash and free to explore nature. The full four acres are surrounded by a 5 foot fence and there is a small creek running through the property. There is a wide spot in the creek that is easily the most popular spot for our canine visitors! There are larger fields and open areas for your dogs to practice their retrieving, and there are many paths in the woods for hiking. The beginning of each path is marked with quartz stones to show you the way. You will also find several benches scattered throughout the property so that you can take a load off while your dogs run and play. When it rains the property can be quite wet in some areas, so bring boots and a towel to clean off your muddy (but happy!) dog. There is a full competition size agility field within the four acres. The agility equipment is completely fenced in and will be accessible only to those who have had at least one formal beginner's agility class. This is to keep you and your dog safe and to prevent misuse of the equipment. Please message the host when you book the spot and before your first visit to discuss your agility experience if you are wanting to access the equipment. **I would really like for your first visit to be on a weekend or a Tuesday (my day off) so that I can meet with you to show you some details about the property and discuss parking. After the first visit, book whenever you want! If you absolutely cannot make it these days for your first visit, we can work something out. 🙂
