Bridget is lovely and the woods are a beautiful spot for my dog to play off-leash! We'll certainly be back.

Nice wooded lot with a creek for dogs to run off leash. (Must keep your dog on a leash near the house so they don’t chase the poultry).

Amazing property following a refreshing creek! My two dogs enjoyed running amuck through the woods and getting their zoomies out! Thanks for a great time!

We had a fun visit! This area is pretty heavily wooded with lots of smells! The acreage behind the huge! My dogs attempted a game of chase but found it to be too dense. They enjoyed the creek and found plenty to sniff. Bridget was helpful and attentive.

Bridget’s spot was the perfect place to take our GSP to let loose! When we arrived Bridget introduced us to her beautiful flock and sweet cat and gave us some pointers on navigating the property. It was easy to keep an eye on my pup while she explored. It was so fun to watch her romp and roam! Not only did we leave with an exhausted GSP (rare!) but a beautiful dozen of eggs. We will definitely be back!

The woods were great! And, even though the creek was fairly dry, there were some good puddles. Definitely dress for a hike, and prepare for bugs. They weren't so bad, but they were present. The fowl were more interesting to us than to our pupper, but he was insistent on meeting Bridget's friendly cat. Definitely a nice alternative to the crowded parks in the area (especially being able to be off leash). Our pupper got lots of sniffing and climbing time - we'd love to come back again!

My puppy and I loved this spot! The hour went so quickly- the creek was lovely and quiet and he loved exploring. The chickens stayed by the house but it was good exposure for my pup. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful area with plenty of room to run and play! Host was very kind and gave a run down of the area, suggesting we keep leashes on until we are passed the chickens in the front yard. It was great exposure as our dogs had never seen chickens before, so they were very intrigued as we walked by. Didn’t hear any other dogs or see any other animals/people. Perfect and relaxing morning to let the pups burn off a ton of energy.

Throughly enjoyed our visit to Julia's. Nice big yard that is securely fenced. Lots of toys, smells, good digging spots and room to run around! I'm sure we'll be back. Note for dog reactive dogs: other dogs can definitely be heard from this spot, and if the dog next door is out on the deck, they can be seen.

My dog and I visited this morning and had a great time! I wasn’t sure how things would go, because she is sometimes nervous in new spaces. But she walked right in and felt right at home. I brought a few tennis balls and a Chuck It with me, because chasing tennis balls is my dog’s favorite activity. But there were also a few toys there- including a ball, a tug toy, and a Kong. We made use of the water bowl, which was nice to find! This yard was a great size for my active, medium-sized dog. If you’ve got a big dog, you might need something larger. Parking was very easy, and the home is on a nice residential street. The yard had a large oak tree, which I’m sure provides great shade on sunny days. The only negative was that my dog tried to evade me when it was time to leave 😄

FAQ about our Hillsborough 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.
