Description

Hi furriends! My pup, Cova, and I invite you to enjoy our private backyard for a FUN, fully fenced-in, experience that both dog and owner will be sure to love! Starting in September, Cova will donate 10% of his proceeds to a local doggie business or charity. Cova’s Review: Great yard with lots of space for running and zoomies! I love to do laps around the pool (above ground) and play fetch along the side of the house! I enjoy rolling around on the turf and chasing the few lizards that dare to come around! Natalie’s Review: I bought my house so my boy, Cova pup, could have a nice backyard and I would absolutely love to share it with others! It’s not perfect yet but slowly making progress:) There are a few nice seating areas both people and pups may enjoy. It’s super calming with beautiful trees to look up at. Cova and I like to do PAWJECTs together and installed a section of turf, putt putt, did some minor landscaping, and planted a guava tree! Still lots we want to do but in good time. There’s a hose and plenty of water available as needed. We put out clean sanitized bowls with fresh water (one bowl with ice) as we can! The area is completely monitored with security cameras (to monitor when my pup is outside) but there has never been an issue with safety as we live in a very safe and nice neighborhood. There are two locked and monitored gates, one through the car port in the front, and one in the back to the alley. I work from home and am flexible should you be interested in using our space. I will block off the dog doors so the backyard is private. Cova has two dog doors but when you book our private space, I will close his door so he cannot get outside. Cova loves making new fwiends and if your dogs are friendly and would like to play, let us know and add on the pug pup playtime extra. Entry for our Sniffspot guests is currently from the front through the carport gate- I will unlock and lock the white gate for you as needed. Access instructions will be sent to you upon booking. We have a ton of dog toys including balls, tug toys, frisbee, and a tiny dog pool (let us know if you would like to use!)! We also have a ton of human toys! If you would like to use any of our backyard games, please let us know and we can pull them out for you to use for an additional fee. You are free to play putt putt as you’d like. We absolutely LOVE seeing pictures of your doggies having fun and encourage you to share them with us as part of your review. Happy tail wags make my heart so happy! Our Rules: -Please do not let your dog jump up onto the above ground pool (a busted pool would not be fun for anyone involved). -Do not use the above ground pool without explicit consent (we may open up the pool option in 2023) -Please pick up after your dogs waste. There is a dog waste station located near the entry/exit available for waste disposal. If you can, try to limit your dog from pottying on the turf, especially the putt putt space. We understand though that when a dogs gotta go, they gotta go! -No smoking of any kind on our property -Per sniffspot agreement, all dogs must be vaccinated AND ON FLEA MEDICATION! -Most importantly, HAVE SO MUCH FUN:) Thank you, Natalie and Cova

    Natalie’s spot is a perfect getaway for my puppy, Lola. Adequate shade, running space, and extra amenities provided (bug repellent, dog treats, hand sanitizer, toys for dogs, etc). Backyard is quiet and tranquil. Natalie is a wonderful host!

    Host replied: Thank you for your review! Lola is such a cutie pie, thank you for sharing pics as part of your review and letting me pop out there to see her

  • Christina E., Feb 20, 2023

    This spot was amazing! It was so quiet and private. She left toys and water for my pup and the space was super inviting. We will definitely be back :) Thank you Cova and Natalie!

    Host replied: Thank you for your review Christina! And also for sharing pictures- Finn is absolutely adorable and I’m so happy to hear y’all had a nice time. We hope to host you again in the near future :)

  • Linda G., Jan 24, 2023

    Our dogs had a ball running around the backyard of cova’s place. Things were set up nicely in the sunroom for the dogs..water, toys, etc. It was cool weather for us, but on sunny days, there is a nice bit of trees for shade. Yard is very secure and quiet! Natalie was excellent with communication..thank you, Natalie for sharing!

    Host replied: We appreciate your review, thank you! Love hearing your dogs had a ball running around and felt our yard was secure 😊

  • Celeste T., Jan 19, 2023

    This location was comfortable and clean and the host was very gracious. She left water and ice for the dogs, dog toys, a towel, and even drinks for me! The neighbor dog did come out and barked a bit and we heard another dog or two but it wasn’t an issue for my reactive dog.

    Host replied: Thank you for your review! The neighbors dogs come out occasionally but I’m glad the barking wasn’t an issue for your reactive dog. Hope to have y’all back soon

  • Shyla G., Dec 24, 2022

    My pups had a great time! Owner left a cute little note as well as toys and treats for my kids! Beautiful spot, will be back!

    Host replied: Thanks Shyla! I’m just seeing the incredibly precious picture of your pups from your visit - SO CUTE! Love their sweaters 💖 thanks for sharing

  • Rachel L., Oct 27, 2022

    Once again, an excellent Sniffspot!! Cova’s backyard was decorated for Halloween and she even left out cute costumes for a doggie photo shoot!!

    Host replied: Teddy looks so good with that hairdo! Thanks for sharing he’s so cute 😊

  • Caitlin H., Oct 26, 2022

    The pups had a blast and I was able to catch up with my friend who had been road-tripping for the past 4 months! We were offered beverages and there was fresh water for the dogs. Definitely will book again in the future!

    Host replied: Thank you Caitlin! Looking forward to it please come back anytime 🐶 😊

  • Rachel L., Oct 9, 2022

    Amazing! I recommend this spot to anyone. It was well kept, they had a lovely sign welcoming us at the gate, the instructions were clear, and they had water, toys, and extra poop bags out. It was more spacious than I thought and my dog Teddy loved sniffing around. I felt very safe and cannot thank Cova and his mom enough!

    Host replied: Thank you for this kind review! Glad you felt safe, this neighborhood is very safe and one of the main reasons I landed here 🙌🏽

  • Brooke P., Sep 17, 2022

    Loved Cova’s backyard! Her mom thought of everything we could need. Will definitely be back!

    Host replied: Super late reply but thank you for giving us a review and sharing pics of your pups playtime 🤗

  • Jennifer H., Aug 20, 2022

    This was our 2nd time going to Natalie's and it was perfect again! Plenty of drinking water for the pups and the doggie pool was at the perfect level for our Birdie to enjoy! We are so lucky to have this spot so close to our home!:)

    Host replied: Thank you for coming back we love having you! Happy to hear Birdie has some fun in the doggie pool 😊

Meet your host

Hi I’m Natalie and my pup’s name is Cova. We heard about Sniffspot and immediately wanted to join in on the fun and open our backyard up for fellow friends to enjoy. I work from home and am a consultant in the cybersecurity and compliance space. I absolutely LOVE dogs! I also enjoy traveling, the beach, and explorations with Cova. We also like doing house projects (or pawjects) together. Feel free to follow along on cova’s adventures through his Instagram @covathepug 10% of our proceeds will be donated to one of our favorite, local, dog-loving businesses 🐶
