Urban Oasis - Astroturf play and agility space (no muddy paws ever)

Over 4200 square feet of Astroturf play area conveniently located adjacent to the BWI airport (less than a 5 min Uber ride away). The yard is surrounded by wooden privacy fencing so your pups can focus on playing! Astroturf provides a soft, plush, clean surface so even wet dogs don’t get dirty during their stay (perfect if you’re waiting on a flight or traveling with your pup). Aluminum gazebo to protect you from the elements, and a separate covered sitting area to keep guests shaded. Space is equipped with agility equipment including an a-frame, adjustable jump, tunnel, agility stakes, and back tie. The space also has various toys, kiddie pools/dog activated water fountain/hose in the summer to keep dogs cool . There is a metal tug toy assembly in the tree, but you’ll need to bring your own toy to hook into it (we go through the toys too fast to keep replacing 😂). If coordinated in advance (and with owner supervision) you can even use the slat mill for an extra physical challenge. If you’re bringing a young puppy out please message us directly so we can put out the ball pit. The space is equipped to be used in the dark and has many solar motion activated lights along the fence, solar lights on the pergola, and a lit walkway leading up to the gate. The best travel companion is a happy/tired pet. As the weather gets nicer you may see some neighbors on your way in and may hear them while in the yard. You may also hear the normal neighborhood noises and the occasional cluck of a chicken (there are 🐓 next door; however, the privacy fence is slated, the fence is over 8ft tall, and the turf is on a hard rock pack so they aren’t super visible and they’d be EXTREMELY hard to get to). No dogs live in the yards adjacent to the fence so you rarely hear barking; however, we occasionally take in reactive board and trains. In the extremely rare case one of our houseguests barks and disturbs your peace during the visit let us know and we will make it right. On most hot days the turf gets warm in direct sunlight. Typically we will spray it down between guests if we are home. However, please check the turf intermittently and spray down as desired. The turf has an infill that causes significant evaporative cooling once its sprayed down. The small red cooler typically has water for the humans! Please help yourselves! Please no smoking 🚭 anywhere on the property. Cigarettes could damage our turf (extremely expensive to fix) and poison dogs.

Linthicum Heights, MD
Hard Struggle Homestead

Complete freedom to roam on 30 acres with a bonus that our land is surrounded by another 200+ acres of electric company owned land with no roads, no cars, no neighbors… just grass and forest. We occasionally have farm animals positioned on an acre or 2 who are fully fenced in. If you see blue fence posts with white wire / rope running between them, please assume the fence is electrified. We would ask that you use caution with your dogs around the livestock areas so as not to frighten the animals or the dogs! We have a Google Earth picture roughly showing the property lines and the driveway for you to use while exploring. Bonus: We are a small farm so if you are interested in picking up some chicken or pork - send us a message and we can have your order ready for pick up when you arrive. You can visit for more info and details or just message us about our to-go farm products. There is no house on the property. Just a camper and a shed. Park anywhere on the road or at the big circle at the top (near the farm office.) We have wifi near the brown shed at the top of the road. Wifi: HSH Password: HardStruggleHomestead We are happy to say hello and give you a tour of our farm and answer any questions about how we raise our chicken and pigs. We are also happy to give you a future free sniff spot hour with the purchase of chicken or pork! Just inquire within! Be forewarned that our land is on the side of a mountain so the walk up the driveway will be on a slow incline. Your dogs will be tired after this trip, we promise. Update: April 2023 As of April 1st there are no animals or livestock on site except for a colony of bees which are fenced in with an electric fence.

Our first visit to a Sniff Spot and it was GREAT! We booked for one dog, one hour. The agility course kept my German shepherd busy for the full hour. Next time we will book two-hours and explore the other space. Clean, secure, private, and loads of fun!

This is the second time we've visited this location. We've always had a great time. The sniffspot comes with great obstacles for dogs and is just a perfect size for a dog to stretch his/her legs and have a great time

Great space! Lots of room for our German Shepherd to run around. She had a blast with the agility courses provided. Karen provided everything you would need and more. Highly recommend for not only small dogs but larger dogs and shepherds!
