Max's field of Sniffs in Paris, WI

Max is my puppy-brother who absolutely loves that field and all the smells. He moved up north and wants to share his special place with others who love to run wild in a field and splash in a creek. It is used as a hay field during the summer. during that time, it is long grass but after the season it is shorter and fun to walk down to the creek. Dogs like the tall grass as much as the short. There are mowed trails to get to the creek through the brush. Right now the creek is low from our summer drought but enough for them to splash in. It is not a groomed trail, just brush mowed, so it is uneven ground with rocks, sticks, etc to watch out for. It is nature so expect bugs. There will be some bug spray if you need it. There is a picnic table down by the creek to sit while the puppies play. It is also nice to just lay in the field and look up at the sky with your furry friend. Suggestions are always appreciated. This is my first time with sniffspot and still learning I have chuck-it balls and thrower to borrow. Please bring them back and hang them up so the next person can use them. I also have a 6ft leash to borrow if you forget yours and need one. I have included dog waste bags. Please do not use dumpster on site, instead use small garbage can near waste bags. Please look at the pictures to see where you can play. There are businesses at this location so you can expect to see cars and people on occasion. But they will not come up to you unless you ask a question or need help.

Yami has a cool SniffSpot. Located in my own community on the private residential inlet. Lotsa of sticks, lake, great place to play. The owner provided water and bags ( left mine in the car :( ... ). Tessi met the 3 resident dogs. I muzzled her because I am a spaz. We are learning to meet other dogs.... awesome yard spot, lovely hosts. There are plenty of chairs to sit and enjoy the constant sun. Priced a little higher but worth the expense.

Great Sniffspot. Boba had a great time! She swam, ran, sniffed, basically had a grand ol’ time! Probably more because of my rambunctious dog exploring everything, she got some little cuts on bottom of couple of paws and her back legs. It didn’t stop her any and she showed no discomfort until we got home. But she’s still running and playing with us around house, so nothing to worry about just to caution. It’s not terribly big for a lot of exploration and sniffing but I mainly wanted Boba to swim, so mission accomplished. We also brought flying disc and tugging toy too. She slept all the way home and earlier too. I had to place a chair in front a small gap in fence that was covered with pile of woods. The fence was fine for us because Boba too happy to swim, explore, swam to the fisherman to care, but if you have strong dog especially jumper like our previous dog, it would not hold. Yami was very nice and responsive. We will be back.

This was such a fun spot for my dog to run around and swim. The owner was super nice as well. I will definitely be going back to swim and kayak next time! Note that this is not the best spot for highly reactive dogs as there are lots of people and dogs at the public beach next door, who are only separated by water. Fortunately mine is pretty social. But if your dog is okay with that, I highly recommend!

Great backyard and very nice people. When needing to ask a question I just went on the app and asked and they came right out to help! Also lovely lake and has shade for very hot days. Happy they provided a hose/water bowl because my dogs were thirsty. Overall great experience

Beautiful space! Our dogs loved jumping off the dock into the lake and then running all around the yard. We would definitely visit again. The hosts were great communicators and friendly.

Spot was as described. Happy with our visit and my dog Zelda got a chance to get really muddy and smelly playing in the water which she loved! Fencing was adequate for our needs.

Such fun! This spot is super spacious and full of sniffies. Frank loved to run around, then have some chill time in the grass. The spot has a nice bricked area with outdoor chairs and a table, which was a great “homebase” for us to set down our toy bag, coffee, leash, water bowl, etc,. Safe, secure gate and overall as described! Def hope to return :)

Super cute place! Easy to find, easy entry and exit, fully secured fencing around. I can only imagine how much prettier it looks in the spring/summer!

FAQ about our Grayslake dog parks

Are dog parks good for dogs?
It is important for dogs to have off leash exercise to sniff and run. But the free and open nature of public dog parks has drawbacks. There could be aggressive dogs, disease transmission and cleanliness issues. For this reason, many dog behaviorists discourage visiting public dog parks and recommend Sniffspot's private dog parks. Sniffspot private dog parks only allow one guest to book at a time and are not open to the public, which solves many of these issues.
