55Full sun, fresh water, lots of shade- toys a plenty, very nice green soft lawn. Today we had a beautiful breeze so it wasn’t too hot and we all had a great time.
55First time in a Sniffspot with my golden retriever who is reactive to other dogs so never gets off leash time. He loved it so much and ran so much. He ran so much we couldn’t stay the entire hour as he was so hot. Loved it and will be back
55Amazing I’m able to book on short notice even close to dusk when my dog gets a second wind. Always fresh water and fun toys to play with. A great visit as usual.
55Booked on very short notice- fresh water was provided for my doggie and we both had a fun run in the rain. Very convenient. Thanks for a wonderful visit !
55This was my first booking with Sniffspot and Sheila. The communication was fantastic, and everything was as pictured/described. I have a rescue German shepherd who’s reactive, so it was a pleasure to take him where he could run free and play ball. The grass was nicely cut, a large clean water bowl was placed by the toy area for convenience, and lots of toys provided so I could leave mine at home. The fence was as described, and later in the day there is shade for resting, along with a picnic table to sit for the mom. I would highly recommend this location to anyone who requires a special safe place to take their dogs. Blue had a wonderful time and so did I. Thank You Sheila. 🙌🏻🙌🏻
55Great place for the dogs
55Excellent visit. Very secure and clean. Fresh water and toys were great!
55❤️ it here
55Huge yard to run around, fully fenced, several water dishes, toys available to play, would definitely do again 😊
55First time to this sniff spot. We enjoyed our time very much (golden retriever and Bernese mountain dog). Our dogs are “Covid” pups and can be dog selective so this place is excellent. Lots of room to run off leash and know they are fenced in and on their own. We recently put in a pool so dogs have little space to run at home (and no grass in backyard) so this spot is excellent. And it’s just a short drive from our home in Oshawa. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My only recommendation would be to have a trash bin to put the poop bags into. We brought the poop hole with us, but not ideal to bring in the car 😉.

DOGS POOL PARADISE 🥳!

Welcome to Dogs Backyard Paradise! 😍 POOL OPEN MAY- SEPTEMBER 🥳 Welcome to Durham Regions only Sniffspot with in ground salt water pool, and fully fenced 1 acre grass yard! 6 ft high privacy fence allowing your dog to zoom around the whole 1 acre backyard! 🤩 We absolutely love dogs, having 5 rescue dogs of our own, we know how tough it can be to find a safe and secure property for them to run and enjoy themselves! So we created our own little backyard heaven for them and would love to share it with others ! Whether it be your dog needs lots of space to run, or prefers to take it slow and sniff around, maybe they are a bit shy or reactive to other dogs/people, our backyard is the perfect space for them to relax, feel safe and explore on their own terms! Lakes in Ontario are often full of high levels of 🦠 bacteria, which can be harmful to pets, don’t risk it, stay safe by bringing them to the pool ☺️ Is it your pups birthday ?? We can set up a table for them for an extra $10 in “extras” - includes tablecloth, banner, dog treats and birthday hat 🎩 We can also accommodate “ Paw-ties”!! 🐾🥳. For up to 20 dogs! For cost please send us a message! We do have 5 rescue dogs, so you may hear some barking from inside, but there will be NO visible or personal contact from our dogs. Pool- if you would like to use the pool with your dog, we would be happy to have you come kick back and relax 😎 This is an additional fee per person per hour and must be booked in the “extra” section when booking in your dog(s) We will provide a towel and pool float for you! 🥰 4 people max, and for 2 hours max. (longer bookings can be accommodated for a fee) No children under 3 in the pool please. No alcohol permitted on the property. There is free street parking either on our street or the side street beside us ✨We don’t supply life jackets for dogs/humans. So if you or your pet is unsure about swimming it is recommended to bring one. ✨ We donate 10% of all profits to a dog rescue that is near and dear to our heart! So we appreciate every single one of you and by visiting us you help dogs in need! 🐶🥹❤️ Max people on property is 4! (We can accommodate larger groups but for an extra fee) IMPORTANT: all prices listed are in USD and guests will be charged in USD this is out of our hands, and is put in place by Sniffspot. They also take 22% off the top plus a 3% transaction fee from us. We looked at a local kennel close to us with a pool, and seen they charge $20 for 20 minutes. So total it would be $60 for an hour. Plus there are lots of other dogs at the facility which doesn’t work well if you have a reactive dog. We on the other hand are 100% private just for you, and our prices are per hour not just 20 minutes. We wanted to price ourselves as fairly as we could to cover our cost, while still staying as cheap as we could for your pet! 🥰 Safety note- You are fully responsible and liable for your personal safety, your kids safety, and your dogs Safety while in the pool and/or on the property and by booking you acknowledged this and have agreed to this. Kid toys- There are some kids toys in the yard that can be used free of charge. We thank you for choosing us 🙏 and hope your fur babies have a great time! 🥰
