Huck had the time of his life playing long fetch and swimming in the pond. He’s a border collie mix, so he loves running, but we can’t do in our small townhome backyard. Thank you for sharing your space and providing such a great option for this. It is now officially the best Sniffspot we’ve been too thus far. We’ll be back!
Great place! We loved the pond :)
My dog loved playing in the water! The instructions from the host were very clear and helpful for where to park, property limits, etc. Would definitely recommend to other water loving dogs!
Awesome little spot! Loved the pond and being able to wash the dogs off after
Big space for pups to run, and very clear signage/instructions from the host. The pond was great for my water loving pup!
My dogs loved it, especially the pond. Jumping off the dock and running around to dry off, good experience.
Amazing place! My pup loved it!
This is the most awesome place! Dog wash was very helpful!! We will be back for sure.
Great place. We went there mainly so my pooch could swim and retrieve toys in the pond, and it was perfect for that.
Will definitely return
Awesome spot. The area is huge with lots for dogs to explore. The pond is amazing. There is a regular dock and a floating dock that your pup can jump off of. There is also a shallow entry to walk in. My pup is not okay off leash without a fence so we used a long leash. Luckily the owner had one in the toy box since I forgot mine at home. The toys were great. There is also a simple dog wash to get your pup cleaned off from the pond if you go in and a towel to dry them off. The grass was low and I didn’t see any dog poo. My pup is super reactive and there were no noises she reacted to while there so no cars, dogs or people. Will definitely return!
Always great! The pond was extra beautiful today.
Had a great time at the spot as always. It would be great to be able to book in 30 min increments though.
We love coming here! My reactive boy always has a blast, and feels safe to explore and play. Highly recommend!
Our dogs loved her facility! The pond was in great condition and perfect for what we needed to do training wise
Great spot! My dog loved the smells and enjoyed cooling off in the pond.
Great, as always!
Fantastic Sniffspot! Our dogs loved the pond and the huge space to run around in.
Great spot! Perfect for dogs who love to swim!
Our dogs had a blast running around the property and checking out the pond. The instructions were great and we knew where to park and where everything was when we arrived. We definitely hope to come back!
We always thoroughly enjoy our time here!
My dog absolutely loves it and it’s the only place she still gets the zoomies at! The little pond is such an added bonus for the water babies! It’s about a 40min drive for us each way but we love it so much we continue to do it!
This sniff spot was perfect for our water loving lab. He absolutely loved it. Everything we needed and more was provided and clearly marked. We will definitely go back!
A beautiful and secluded spot! One of our dogs LOVES swimming and he had a fun time swimming around the pond. Our other dog loves to walk and run in the water and he was able to splash around in the shallower ends of the pond. There were toys, towels, and a hose for us to use on site as well. Overall we had a great time!
Huge area, awesome time for my boy to run, explore, and cool off in the water. He slept forever after our visit!!
We took our 3 pups, and they had an amazing time! The pond and field were super clean and there was so much room for our dogs to swim and roam! Definitely did not matter that there wasn’t a fence. We were a little worried about the electric fence going there, but it was so far away that it wasn’t a problem. They had a box of toys and the wash station was awesome. Thank you so much, we will definitely be back!
This was our first time visiting, and it might be my dog’s new favorite Sniffspot. There was lots of land that we could roam, although it was not all fenced in as stated in the listing. We stuck to right around the pond the entire time. Presi was kind and had a tent sent up by the dock, which provided some much needed shade. My dog is large so the floating dock was a little confusing to him at first because it sunk down with his weight, but he got used to it almost immediately. He loved watching the goose in the pond, and he had a blast running around. We brought our own toys, but there were toys and a dog bath available if we wanted.
Great place extremely clean and well maintained. Pond is great for swimming our 4 dogs had a great time and we will definitely be back!!
Always great in this beautiful space!
We all had an amazing time! Our older dog loved the pond and the little one had a blast running around and exploring without a leash. At first I was worried about the electrical fence but the property is huge! There is no need for the dogs to go close to it. The owners were sweet and everything you needed for a fun day was there. Definitely will be back!
We had a great time playing in the huge field and in the pond! The grass was well maintained and cut short, so it was perfect for lots of fetch! We felt perfectly comfortable with the tree/fencing combination, but it’s not completely secure so it might be an issue if you have a dog that likes to bolt. The pond was a great addition for this hot summer day!
This spot was great! Lots of space to run around with a cool little pond for cooling off. Not too much shade if that’s something of interest but you can find a few spots here and there. Loved the use of the dog wash station to rinse off the mud from the pond. Thanks so much!
So much fun! I loved how much room my dogs had to run. The pond was so amazing too!!!
What a great spot! My dog loved running around and swimming in the pond. We will be back!
Lots of open space. Pretty quiet.
What a wonderful spot! Hosts were responsive and have really thought of everything, and the area is quiet and peaceful--we didn't see a single soul the whole time.
Now this was fun!!!!! The pups had a blast playing in the water, chasing the toads in the pond and running around! Eli fell in love with a fetch toy, so now I have to make sure we get one for him! Will definitely come back again when the weather warms up!!!
This really is a great spot. Lots of room for games of fetch or just go exploring. For dogs that like to swim the pond set up is good. Had to hose off the dog afterwards, the towels and dryer were good enough to get my GSD/Husky dry.
Fabulous as always. Beautiful spot, great host, excellent communication.
We had a blast! This place has it all; open spaces for games of fetch, a beautiful perimeter walk, a pond for water-loving dogs like mine, Fit Paws equipment, & a place to wash the dogs when they're done romping around. We'll definitely return for more fun!
Our three dogs had a blast here! They ran around and jumped into the lake and swam as well. We will definitely be back. One thing though was that we couldn’t seem to find the towels! But it was ok because we took them for a bath after. Thank you!
Lovely time as usual!
Great space! Thank you for allowing us to visit!
Such a wide open space with lots of room for sniffing and playing! Absolutely loved this place!
It's a nice, huge spot. My dog wasn't brave enough to venture out deep into the water, but she did splash around a bit. She loved exploring and sniffing all of the smells.
Lots of open space for the dogs to run and truly get their energy out! We’ll be back!
The space was just what my pack of 4 needed! Lots of open space to run around. We certainly enjoyed our time there!
Our dogs absolutely loved this huge space! They were able to run and chase balls to their hearts content. We walked around the lake multiple times enjoying the weather and the peace and quiet. Highly recommend!
This was a great place to visit! We enjoyed the open land with no distractions and was able to live in the moment for one full hour! There were more than enough toys, water to drink and room to play fetch and run and have a good time. We look forward to visiting again!
My dog had a blast running around all the different areas! And the snow was an added benefit!
We loved it here! My reactive little guy was in paradise, with not a trigger in sight. It’s a huge space that’s perfect for going on a sniffari or for zooming to your heart’s content. We’ll definitely be back!
Wonderful, open and beautiful place to let our dogs run and play.
Great place to work and play with our dogs. The front fields are level and great for recall and walking practice, and the pond and area around really get my dog's nose going!
Great spot to spend hours hanging with your pup. Quite a few toys to throw around during the visit. Yard is very clean and free of hazards. Water bowls provided came in handy after a couple hours of running around.
As advertised—lots of room and a nice pond with a swing. Very good communication and directions.
Wow! My dog loved this property! He immediately went into the clear pond at the back of the property. He also loved running around the pond. Thanks and we will be back!
Clean and big. The amenities (dog wash, toys, etc) are above and beyond. The pond looks perfect for doggy swimming--I hope to make use of that in future visits. Very quiet. Can't hear the highway, low-traffic street, and we didn't see or hear any people or animals at all. Big open grassy area for running, woodsy edges for sniffing. Nice clean property, no poop. Great experience.
A lovely time as usual! My dogs love the water! Thanks P-J for being such a great host!
What a wonderful spot to enjoy water play with the dogs! Everything was perfect and they loved every minute.
A beautiful place for dogs to have fun. The hosts thoughtfully provide toys of all kinds, dog poop bags, with a bucket for disposal, a 30 foot lead line, water, and much more. My dogs especially enjoyed the pond, one even did some swimming.
We had the absolute best time! The dogs loved running around in the field to sniff and play fetch. The pond was also so much fun and my dog even swam for the first time! There were also some cold drinks for the humans and a hose to clean the dogs at the end. Such a great time!
Definitely the spot for water-loving dogs. The pond looked clean and my dog had a great time wandering around. The owners gave clear directions and were even nice enough to let us make up our time when we were late. Will definitely be coming back!
Had a fantastic time! Our pup swam most of the time and had a blast! There was plenty of room for her to run around as well.
A very big, open, and fun spot for you and your dogs. Even though it was raining during our visit we still had a blast. I love that they provide toys and a long line leash if you need one. The pond is really nice and my dogs enjoyed running around and sniffing everything. We will definitely be back!
A beautiful spot. My three dogs had the best time and spent almost the whole hour swimming in the pond! We will absolutely drive the hour to visit again!
The property looks like a great spot for dogs but unfortunately our dog got stung by wasps after a few minutes of being on the dock. We had to leave. The owner was sympathetic and refunded our stay and asked for help to locate the nest so they could take care of it asap. The 3 stars would be a five if that didnt happen!
Our pup loved the open space and toys :)
This is our second time here and we will definitely be back. Not only do our dogs love it, we love it because it feels like a get away for us. They best part aside from the wide open space to run is the pond. We rented 1.5 hours and our dogs swam the whole time. 10/10 ⭐️
Great open space just as described. Our pups are ready to jump as soon as we hit the drive way. i hope this remains an option for a long time to come! thank you for opening up your space and making so many pups happy!
My pup loved the wide open space and cooling off with a dip in the pond. My pup didnt have time to play with the additional agility toys but they looked to be new and in greag shape. The host provided flea and tick spray for humans and dogs and a hose and towels and that was greatly appreciated.
Fantastic spot! lots of toys available and the pond is WONDERFUL! we went for a swim with our dog, great way to spend a hot day!
great place to run and swim!
our pups had a lovely day! lots of swimming and running. They’ve been snoring ever since we got home. They loved the toys and we loved being able to hose them off before we left.
This was our second visit to this sniffspot. The first time was great - our dog loves the wide open space to run.
However, we went for the 2nd time today and now there is an ELECTRIC FENCE on one side of the property and my dog got shocked pretty badly when she sniffed along the fence line. She yelped and cowered quite a bit. :(
I didn't read the description on the sniffspot page before booking this time b/c we had already been there before (before the electric fence). It looks like they added it to the description, but I personally would not have a sniffspot if I had an electric fence. And at the very least, put a sign on the fence warning people of it (there wasn't one)!! I would worry about a child getting shocked too as it isn't obvious it's an electric fence.
I wouldn't have left a review just for this, but the grass was also VERY long - not ideal with the tick situation in Virginia.
It takes a lot to upset me, but this situation really did.
Great space for letting my dog run and do some training. Pond is great and looking forward to trying some swimming during the summer. Thanks for having us.
Dogs had a great time and I appreciate the host providing bottled water and a hose for rinsing off. A note of caution; I watched my two very closely to ensure they weren’t drinking the pond water, but both still threw up a little. I didn’t see any blue algae, but nonetheless when they both threw up I became nervous. Dogs were fine, albeit tired after play. Still recommend this spot, but be cautious with the water.
We had a great time. Lots of space for our pup to run, and she loved swimming in the pond. Although its not fully fenced in, we put a long lead on our pup and she was just fine. Very friendly host that goes above and beyond with having water, toys, towels, chairs, etc available. Would definitely recommend!
The pups had a great time swimming in the pond and running around the yard. Plenty of room to run!
Our pup loves to swim and this spot was like his dream come true. I was impressed with how much extra the host offered (toys, towels, water for both humans and dogs). We spoke briefly when we arrived and he was very kind. We will definitely be back later in the summer.
This is a lovely place and we've already been here twice. Thank you to the owners for their kindness!
Our retriever club had a great time training at this property. Lots of space and the host was super nice.
Wonderful setting for our dogs to run freely! Our host provided many amenities such as fresh water, towels, and a dog bath for cleanup!
There is a pond with a floating dock on the property which our dogs LOVED, as well as several fields for running, exploring, tracking, etc.
There is some fencing, but also some areas where an enterprising dog might think about exploring beyond the property, so we'd recommend having a great recall on your dog, or using a long tracking line if near the fence lines.
Ginger had such a great time. She was sprinting with joy the whole time. Our host had great toys, towels, and gave lots of great information. Could not recommend more.
great location! my dog loved swimming and frolicking around. very clean.
Great spot! Our doggies love it and can’t wait to jump out the car!
DONT HESITATE JUST BOOK IT! Myself and a group of friends (and our 12 dogs) booked this spot to celebrate our dogs gotcha days and they had a blast! Plenty of room for the dogs to run, fetch, swim & play. 10/10 recommend!
This was our second time to this lovely spot. The dogs are in love with this spot. Pretty much knew where they were the second I let them out. We got to see a couple geese flying and take pics. The sky was lovely for picture taking! They swam and ran till their hearts content. Thanks!
huge area and super friendly
This was an amazing sniff-spot. My dog loved it and we loved watching her have all the space to run! The owners are so thoughtful to provide water, toys and so on! We will be back for sure!
Awesome sniffspot! It's not often that you get to hang out at your own private pond. The host provided a ton of great amenities like clean towels and toys too. Only watch-out is the field is next to a horse paddock, which our dog kept sneaking into. We anticipated this though and brought a 50-ft leash to keep her contained. All in all would highly recommend!
Great host. The location is very pretty. Plenty of room for running and swimming!
Great spot, well maintained. Horse farm on adjacent property. Pond was frozen over today but my Chessie still wanted to swim. Owner came out to greet us on arrival, very friendly. I now have an exhausted puppy.
It was really wet today when I went there but no fault of the owners. My dog enjoyed being off leash and the pond was really pretty cool. The owner was super nice leaving out a box of toys, the water bowl greeting us from an appropriately distanced CoVID safe place and making us feel welcome, pointing out where to park and walk. I would definitely recommend the spot and will come back here again. Even though there’s not a fence, it was plenty far enough away from any traffic down a country road and the neighbors and horses were of no distraction ... actually they weren’t out when we were there. Beautiful scenery and it was nice to get out of the city and have such an attractive destinations. Thank you so much!
This property was exactly as advertised. The owner was lovely and accommodating.
Amazing place and host was very accommodating!
Massive property with a pond in the back great for swimming. Brought my lab puppy for some retriever training and she had a blast. Host was very welcoming and had water, a hose, and a drying station all laid out upon arrival. Highly recommend!
My dogs had so much fun running at this spot! This spot has a nice place to swim as well. We will definitely be back!
Fantastic experience! Beautiful home and yard. Owners put out ability training equipment for us upon request. Our dogs had too much fun, though, running around in all that space. So wide and open with a pond that our dogs loved. Owners were very nice and put out a large water bowl and we had hose access to fill the bowl. Doggy trash bin there to put doggy bags when we picked up after them. we had four young dogs and a senior dog with mobility issues, but she also enjoyed being outside and could lie down and rest and enjoy the sights, smells, amd sounds as our other dogs ran and explored to their hearts content! We will definitely put this place on our list of favorite places and plan to return again in the future! Wonderful for the dogs and for us!
