This was our first time visiting a Sniffspot and Waldo and his bff Delilah had a BLAST! Kathy’s husband met us and explained things, showed us to the spot and was very nice. The property was amazing and a dog’s paradise! We will absolutely be back!
Great open space. Pond was awesome and there are gradual entry points for less adventurous dogs.
Wonderful host, very understanding and accommodating of dogs with reactivity, excellent communication, beautiful area to take your dog to run free, clean and well maintained, definitely worth the reasonable fee, would (and do) recommend to anyone!
This has to hands down be one of my favorite places to take my dogs. Kathy responds so quickly if you have any question. Best Sniffspot I’ve ever been too!
Great spot! My dog Kirby had a blast and we can't wait to go back!
Another excellent visit to the pond. Our dogs love exploring here ♥️♥️
Wonderful place, safely fenced in, and our dogs had a blast! First time for our GSD to see real sheep in the fields behind the pond. It was an experience for him!
Our girls had a blast! The pond is beautiful and the surrounding area is well maintained. We would gladly visit again!
Perfect spot for my trio to burn off energy. The pond is great for days when it's to hot to hike and my guys still need exercise.
Louid gives it 4 paws up!
Such a wonderful space to let our pups run free!! We get a nice workout too chasing them around the pond.
Exactly as described. Kathy was very friendly and accommodating. I love all of the spots for humans to sit and rest while the pup ran and swam. Lovely location. We will definitely return.
Everything about the visit was wonderful. To see my foster dog who is fearful of things outside running and playing was amazing. The pond is perfect for a dog who enjoys swimming or just getting wet. This will definitely be a regular thing for us.
Absolutely loved this spot! The dogs enjoyed playing in the water and running around. The area is fully fenced in which meant I could relax and just let the dogs do their thing! There's a receptacle for dog waste and for trash which was great. There was also seating and shade in the afternoon! We will definitely be back!
My dog loved this spot! I wish I had booked more than an hour! Kathy was super helpful in answering questions and showing us where to go. My pup and I will definitely be back.
Our dogs had a great time at the pond! This is a great place for a dog that loves exploring. There are frogs everywhere that our dog loved trying to catch
The host was awesome too, she noticed our dog's arthritis and told us about new remedies for it that we did not know existed!
Great spot! Our dogs are easily overexcited and we weren’t sure how they would act but they had a fantastic time running and playing in the pond
Take your dog here now. Lovely 5 acre fence enclosed area that includes a beautiful pond perfect for all your dogs swimming desires!!! When you book, the area becomes your private oasis. The hosts are terrific.
Such a beautiful spot! Kathy was so welcoming and friendly. Perfect Sunday morning. I hope to be back soon!
Loved the pond!! Very secure fence.
Always great to visit!!
Lucy and Rocky have had an absolute blast both times we’ve gone, we have enjoyed ourselves tremendously and plan to return regularly to let our 1yo dog run to her hearts content. Highly recommend, especially for active and young dogs.
Our second visit to the pond was great - the pups got to swim and cool off in this heat! The people even dipped their toes in! Thanks to Kathy for an awesome spot to visit in the summer!
Kathy was very nice and welcoming. Our dogs had a blast here. It’s a beautiful property with plenty of space. The fence was secure as can be. We will definitely be back.
The pond was so much fun for our 2 dogs. plenty of space to run and play! Our dogs aren’t big on water so they didn’t get in but the pond was beautiful.
Another great visit- Cooper and Brutus had a blast as usual. Looking forward to the next one!
Fantastic spot! Lots of room to run and swim! Highly recommend.
Kathy’s spot is wonderful! Clean, spacious, and fully fenced for running fun. We will be back!
My dogs and I had a wonderful experience and will be back for sure! Kathy was wonderful and interacted with my dogs beautifully. It is a clean, private, spacious environment perfect for some relaxation for mg dogs and myself!
Another awesome visit! Thank you!
This Sniff Spot is exactly what my dogs needed!! It was a blast to watch them run free and swim to their hearts content. 💕
This is our dogs favorite place! They love running and playing here.
Another great visit with some doggie friends!
a great way to exercise your pups! We loved the pond and definitely will be going back.
We had another wonderful visit! Our pups love the pond and we get our steps in chasing them around it.
Perfect place to let your pups swim and play freely. Hosts do an amazing job providing everything you need.
Such an amazing spot! My pup had the time of her life
Had a great swim!
Tessa loved The Pond! It was so nice being able to let her roam and swim. We enjoyed a picnic and playing fetch with her. Beautiful and relaxing, thank you so much!
Sadie, Scarlett, and Fitz had SO much fun!! Great spot to spend an hour on a hot day.
Lots of space. Fully fenced and secure. My dog had a blast swimming and even saw a fish jump out of the water and kept waiting to see if she could find another one. Great place to explore with your furry best friend.
We love love Kathy’s properties!
First time to the pond and my dog would not leave, he had the absolute best time.
We LOVE The Pond!! what a wonderful spot. Booked a 3hr visit for this weather-wonderful summer Saturday. Second dog, visiting for the first time loved splashing in the water.
Such a beautiful spot and Kathy keeps it well kept. Our dog had a blast and we will definitely return!
A great location. We will come again.
Another perfect visit, even with a little rain. Thank you so much for having us!
The place is absolutely gorgeous! Driveway is marked with sniffspot sign which makes it easy to find for the first-time comers, parking place for "The Pond" is marked as well. The place is spotless clean with dog waste dispose stations. Kathy is very warm and welcoming host, she met us upon arrival and showed the way to the pond gate. Cooper and Brutus had a blast there! Brutus is the one that cannot be trusted off-leash and it was so great to let them roam around without worries. It is like a little piece of paradise- we will definitely be back for more fun. I left with two very happy tired wet dogs :)
My dogs loved it and the property was great!
We booked this spot for my pups birthday and we all had the best time! Having a reactive dog that loves to run and swim can be challenging and this quiet remote spot allowed us all to relax. We will absolutely be back and will be sure to tell others about it :)
We really enjoyed our visit! The fence is very secure so you can rest easy while your dog runs off leash and plays in the pond. I also loved the benches around the pond so I could sit and enjoy the view for a bit. Highly recommend!
I didn’t like that she came down to show me where to go, that wasn’t discussed before & caused my dog to over react & get very stressed out. Area& pond we’re decent
Our dogs had s blast! Perfect place for water loving dogs and dogs that just want to run and play fetch!
Great play area and pond!
The pond was large and a great exercise for my dog during these hot days!
Always a good time!!
Love this spot. Kathy keeps it nice and clean , no poop for my dogs to roll in which is usually their favorite (and my least favorite)
Our pups had a great time playing at The Pond. The owners made it super convenient having doggie bags, toys, and benches to sit on, which we weren’t expecting. Will definitely be coming back again!
The Pond is basically heaven on earth: a nice, large and secure 5 acres where your dog can run and swim his heart out. I hate to recommend it only because we want it all for ourselves. :) Kathy, the host, is friendly and helpful and so accomodating. Be prepared for a happy (but muddy!) pup after your visit. Baths are available on site if you inquire.
Perfect for our two dogs, one who can’t be trusted off leash in a normal park!
Best spot ever! Plenty of room to run, beautiful location, and the pond is great if your dogs like water.
Great spot! Swimming, fetching, and relaxing in the shade. We could have stayed all day!
Kathy was helpful getting my dogs settled and responded quickly. Area was clean and dogs had a GRAND time!!
Still our favorite place to go!! We love bringing our dog friends here too for a big play date.
My dogs had a wonderful time at this beautiful property. My only regret was that I didn’t book it for more than an hour. My pups loved it! There was plenty of room for the dogs to run and enjoy the pond as well as places for humans to sit and take in the scenery.
Kathy’s spot is amazing! It was just what my dog needed. He loved swimming in the pond and we even got to play fetch. Beautiful property!
What a wonderful getaway and play area! We loved it! Dutch is fast asleep totally wore out from swimming and running around with the zoomies! Dutch spotted a duck and leapt into the pond... then saw me n headed across to me at the widest point.. didnt know he could swim! He's a happy and DIRTY boy! HAHA we cant wait to go back!
What a beautiful spring late afternoon at The Pond. Cloudless blue sky, green grass, light wind, sun, sun, sun. A wonderfully clean and well maintained spot. Thoughtfully placed benches from which to watch the swallows and sparrows knife the air and skim across the gently rippling pond surface. And then! Two fishing eagles appeared soaring, then hovering, searching for fish. I saw one take torpedo form, drop down and impact the water, but no catch. It was a lovely peaceful hour for me and a great search, sniff and romp for my pup! It’s a long drive for us but worth the trip. We’ll be back soon! Thanks for sharing your lovely property with us.
Kathy was super helpful once we found the location. My dog instantly went into the pond for a dip! Poop bags and trash cans are provided, along with toys. We will definitely will be returning back
PLEAE BE AWARE NON DOG FRIENDLY AND NON SOCIAL DOGS PLAY AT THIS AREA OFTEN.
My dog and I had a very terrible and totally
Preventable experience today at the pond. When we arrived there were no signs pointing in the direction on the pond. Once we found it we noticed there were other areas to explore and so of course we did! This area was also fenced in and not labeled so we assumed this was part of the pond since they pretty much butted up against each other. While Exploring we encounter someone else with their pup. This person became very upset so we leashed up and left the area. After this we received quit a
Nasty message from Kathy the host. (Please see below) I also left my vibrating/beeping/shocking collar there as we use the vibration and beep to help get the attention of my partially deaf dog. Kathy clearly gave her opinion on the use of it and has asked us not to return which I will gladly will not. Also another major concern is that on her website she states fencing is 5foot tall which is incorrect and was about 4 feet at best with multiple holes dug under either.
Please see Kathy’s message below:
Thank you for letting me know. This is beyond concerning. When you rent an area you are to stay in that area only. You DO NOT have permission to access to the rest of the property or permission to explore. I have other clients and dogs in other areas.
Additionally, most of the dogs that visit here are NOT DOG FRIENDLY or DOG SOCIAL.
You clearly do not realize how very, very dangerous this situation could have been for everyone.
Additionally, your shock collar is here (according to the manufacturer website). This is a designated Fear Free Zone. I explicitly state in the Sniffspot requirements, using aversive training supplies while you are visiting here is not allowed.
Unfortunately, because of the gravity of your decision to explore the property without permission, entering another area that was occupied by another visiting dog and owner, in addition to bringing a shock collar onto the property, I'm going to ask you to please not return.
Please message me and I'll be glad to put the collar out for you to pickup.
We LOVED this spot!!!! Our boys had so much fun running an swimming. It was HUGE, very clean, and beautiful. A wonderful way to start our Sunday morning. It was about an hour drive for us but so well worth it! We will definitely be back!
We have been wanting a spot to take our rescue Sophie who is reactive to other dogs and this was perfect. She loved running and exploring (she is never off leash outside), and I loved not having to worry about running into any other dogs. Fence was high enough that I wasn't worried about her getting out. Plenty of room and she even took a couple of dips in the pond. We will be back often!
Kathy is always welcoming and kind and has a beautiful place to run and sniff and swim and come home tired and happy!
This was amazing!! Kathy was helpful and kind. The space is amazing our pup LOVED it!! Cannot wait to come back!!
First time using sniffspot and it was a great experience! Great location and a fun place for my dog to stretch her legs and explore!
We had so much fun! The fence was very secure, and made me feel very comfortable about having my dogs loose to play. Only one of my dogs likes to swim, but all 4 had an amazing time playing with toys and running laps around the pond. I would definitely love to be back someday!!
Great location, our dog enjoyed running around the pond, playing ball and practicing "come" commands. He started slowing down after 40 minutes of running. The ground was a soft and muddy in spots but that's because of the rain that morning, a little dog shampoo took care of the mud on him. We will definitely book again! Thanks Kathy!
Our pups had the best time at the pond, they were able to run and romp in the water. We brought some toys for them to chase and fetch but there were also toys there for use! Kathy really thought of everything in this space - there are poop bag stations and trash cans, hand sanitizer, and benches and chairs! The fence was very secure. Our pups were able to explore all the way around the pond and were intrigued by the chickens and sheep nearby. It rained the day before our visit so the ground was a bit muddy, but we were fully expecting that and I think it made the dogs even happier! We can’t wait to come back!
Host was very friendly and our dog had a wonderful time exploring the property. Can’t wait to come back!
Our two German Shepherds, Kaia & Vaida, absolutely loved their time here. The pond was a big hit! We will definitely be back!
This spot is a delight!! The fence is very secure. There are a couple of large areas that are great for playing fetch, and lots of places for dogs to wade into the pond as far as they'd like. We will absolutely be back!!
My dogs had the best time
Incredible. First time using sniff spot and boy am I glade we did. I have three large dogs that are difficult to walk all at once it was so wonderful to let them run free and go swimming!! Not sure who had more fun them or me 🤣 🐕 Kathy does have a tub for the dogs which I plan on using next time to wash off all the mud.
My catahoula Sydney really appreciated that Kathy had benches for her use 🤣
We're so lucky to be 5mins away from this beautiful spot, our Golden LOVES to swim. Amazing Host!
Great place for my dog to run off leash!
This is a great spot. Lots of room to run and my dog loved exploring the pond. I will definitely come back.
Wonderful spot! We hosted a small(ish) “Puppy Party” with eight dogs and their humans and everyone had a blast!
The dogs were excited to tear around the open spaces and to wade into the pond to cool off. The humans enjoyed our leisurely laps around the pond and the great scenery, especially the canine antics…
We reserved The Pond for two hours and it went by far too fast…we’ll be back!
My crazy dog had so much fun! Kathy was very understanding about my reactive dog and gave us all the space we needed. She also gave me great tips and is following up with recommendations for trainers. Beautiful spot, we had a great time and will come back again!
We all had a wonderful time at this beautiful spot. We could have stayed all afternoon! Kathy is a gracious host and we were grateful for the chance to give one dog a bath after swimming and come home with a new flirt pole for the other one. Would love to go back soon.
Another great visit to 'The Pond' ! Beautiful grass to run on and an awesome pond to swim in. Doesn't get any better than this!
Sadie and Koru loved your pond playground for them!!!! They were all wags and happy prancing they whole time. Thank you for opening up your space to allow my girls to have a wonderful day!!!!
We had another great visit. The weather wasn't great but Scout still had a great time running and sniffing everything. As before, "The Pond" is clean and well maintained and the fence is secure. Excellent place for dogs to run and for their people to relax.
The host was very cordial and informative. The spot had plenty of room for running and the pond was enjoyed very much. I am planning to schedule once a week.
This place was so great! Perfect amount of space to run. There’s a nice walking track around the pond and gravel in areas that could normally be muddy. Lots of shallow entry to the pond so a nice into for our dogs to water. There are sheep in the next field over and toward the end my dog got excited about them, but not a big deal. The owner did walk a dog past the area, dog was leashed and well behaved, it was my dogs that barked like they owned the place.
The grass is well kept and mowed but enough brush and trees along the pond for the dogs to get to explore. Great benches to relax and easy access to waste cleanup sites. Would definitely love to come again!
We had such a great time here! The dogs spent the full hour exploring. Everything was clean and well maintained. The fence was sturdy and 5ft tall so even with a running start, my guy wasn't getting out. We will definitely be back!
Beautiful fall day to explore and run. Don't be inclined to think only spring and summer months are meant for this Sniffspot.
We had a wonderful first visit today at the pond! It is a beautiful spot. Very easy access for our geriatric lab, and tons of endless fun. Our border collie spend almost the entire hour and a half in the water. We can't wait to go back!
easy to find, lovely drive to get there, wide open field, pond, fully fenced, hand sanitizer and trash cans distributed on the property. most importantly, the dogs had a great time. we came, we left, we had a great time, and we'll be back. thank you for this space!
Very fun! Nice fenced in area and pups had a blast! Got some cute photos too!
Kathy has a beautiful property with a huge area for the pups to play and explore! Lana loved her first visit and we will be going back! Kathy had all the essentials for a great time for the pups!
Another fabulous visit!
Beautiful/Clean area to give the dogs some freedom.
Kathy is amazing and really knows and understands dogs! I have a fear reactive dog and this place is perfect and most importantly SAFE for him to have fun and be a dog!
Kathy's property is beautiful and the dogs had so much fun! Lots of ball playing fun and couldn't keep my swimmer out of the pond. We will be back !
We keep coming back! My dogs and I love this Sniffspot! Always so well maintained. The pond water access is a godsend for my pup who is heat intolerant. Thank you Kathy!
A beautiful spot. Hostess is very friendly.
The pond was awesome. Best place to a take a dog that loves water and needs a fence. My dog and I had the absolute greatest time. Kathy is very diligent and thinks of everything. I highly recommend. Can’t wait to return.
An absolutely lovely spot! Kathy was such a kind and gracious host. My dog was able to run and swim to her heart's content, and we will definitely be back!
Our favorite Sniffspot!
Harvey was able to run around, and swim, without any concerns of running into other dogs or people. Relaxing for both of us!
Loved everything about the sniffspot! Kathy was amazing and my pup and I had a lot of fun! Will definately visit again.
Scheduling was easy. Directions provided by host were easy to follow. Host met us at the entrance right on time. There was designated parking. There was ample room to run and play and swim for the dogs. The space is fully fenced, well maintained. There are waste bags and waste baskets. There are hand sanitizing stations. There is a bathroom for the humans. There are benches. There are toys. It was everything we were hoping for, and the pups had a great time! Thank you for having a space like this available for us!
We always enjoy coming to this location. The pond is a hit with the dogs. There is plenty of play space and room to walk around the pond with a picnic table and benches. Kathy does a wonderful job with the property.
Dexter absolutely loves The Pond. He ran around for 45 minutes before settling down. The space was clean, well-kept, and huge. Dexter jumped in the pond several times to swim around and loves it. We used the lure course for about 15 minutes before he wanted to go back to swimming. It was his favorite day at his favorite place. We'll be going back again and again.
We have two dogs- one, who loves the water and is very confident and our second dog, who needs some time to build her confidence. This was the perfect spot to let both dogs enjoy and explore.
Kathy has a lovely place where your furkids can run, play and swim! There’s plenty of room on the 5 acre spread for as many pups as you want to bring and its all fenced invso uou dont have to worry about your furkid running off. We will definitely be back again!
perfect place for all age dogs! It is immaculate, Kathy is informative and helpful. My golden , cockapoo and bishon frise love it !
This is such a great space for a dog to run free safely! Kathy has been a helpful host, she showed us the area and gave us helpful training tips. Definitely coming back, our dog was so happy running around the pond.
We really enjoyed our visit and are looking forward to our next!
The fencing was secure. It was extremely hot the day of our play time so my dog spent most of the time in and out of the large pond. Plenty of places to sit. Property was very well maintained. We will definitely will go back.
Beautiful spot!! Lots of shady areas to cool off. Our pups loved it!
This spot is great! Our dogs loved it. They enjoyed the pond and it was so nice it was all fenced in. We will be back!
AMAZING spot! This was our first time and we will be back! The property is fantastic and our three dogs had a blast. Thank you Kathy!!
We had a wonderful time! Kathy came out to meet us and was wonderful to chat with. The spot is gorgeous and well maintained. Our dogs had a blast!
Extremely secure fence surrounds a well maintained grass area with a pond. The host has also put thought into the needs and comforts of pet owners. Our black lab loves running through the ‘meadow’ and exploring the pond.
Kathy was an absolute dream. Everything was so easy and her property was fantastic! She has everything from poop bags to flirt poles, if you’re dog wants a private swimming spot away from a dog of other dogs this is definitely the spot! I will 100% be returning here!
The dogs had a blast swiming and running around. Beautiful and secure spot. Highly recommended! We will be back.
Beautiful place. Courteous host. What we expected and more. Planning to come back.
Beautiful property...large pond, plenty of space to run and roam, very secure and clean. My 'city' dogs enjoyed the frogs and minnows and took a few dips in the water. Most of all, they enjoyed the off-leash freedom!We'll definitely be going back.
My young dog had a blast here! We will definitely invite some of our doggie friends for playdates next time.
This truly is our happy place. Eleanor loves to swim and Lincoln LOVES the lure course.
We had the most amazing time here! My pup went in the pond as soon as we entered and only left the water long enough for me to put her life jacket on. So much fun! We will be back for sure!
This is an absolutely fantastic place to let your dogs run and swim free to their heart's content. It's also a beautiful spot for the humans to relax, walk, and have a picnic etc. We saw chickens and a small cow in neighboring fields. Kathy is a lovely host, and there are chairs, benches, a picnic table, doggie bags and trash cans, and even an optional lure course. Very highly recommend!
What a wonderful experience for my dog Maggie and my family. Fully fenced so Maggie could enjoy an unleashed nature experience. The pond alone just was so exciting for her. We enjoyed walking the property and watching her run, swim, smell…she had a blast!
The host was very kind. She took the time to introduce us to the property. There’s a bathroom on-site too which was lifesaving!
3rd time and it never gets old! our visit aas the peek of our weekend and especially for our sensitive hound mix we love that he can run free and safe
LOVED it. We have a hound dog who has horrible recall and can run at a drop of a pin. We felt have safe and comfy leaving our dog off leash here!
This was a great experience for our coonhound! Kathy greeted us upon arriving and showed us around the pond. The area is flat, walkable and peaceful. We enjoyed identifying birds and flora while there. We are already planning our next visit! Thank you!
wonderful place. beautiful space for running and swimming for dogs of all breeds. Our aussie loved it!
We loved it here. First time using Sniffspot and Kathy was super great and healthy. Our dogs did not stop the entire hour they were there. They loved the swimming and all the area to run in. Last minute we changed our minds and wanted to bath the dogs, Kathy was accommodating for the last minute addition. Very convenient to have a bath after their swim. We can’t wait to come again!
Beautiful property! Perfect for our dog and now we know we have a dog who likes to swim!
This spot is AMAZING! Beautiful, large property with a pond. My beagle had a wonderful time and I don't think his nose left the ground until we left. He only got his toes wet long enough to grab a drink and then kept on going. When we left he slept solid a good 2- 3 hours. Not even the crinkle of a treat bag woke him.
There are plenty of shaded areas, benches, waste bags and trash cans. Best of all for me......a rest room lol.
Kathy is a most gracious host. She even had treats for Hunter, who wasn't interested because he was ready to get going. She walked us down to the field and explained where everything was.
It was our first visit but definitely not our last. I can't give it enough stars
This was our first visit to a Sniffspot. Kathy met with us and showed us the amazing property. Our dogs had a great time. The property is very clean and well kept. We will make this a regular part of our dogs training and exercise.
Our dogs thoroughly enjoyed playing around and in the pond. Kathy greeted us and our dogs. We will be back for another visit soon.
Wonderful host and property!! Kathy was very accomodating and set up a little chase game for our dog. it was truly a great time and an even greater find! There are even benches and a picnic table. I would love to get a few friends and their dogs together for a dog party 😊. I definitely recommend!
Our three pups had the most perfect time here!!! They swam all day and loved to run around! It was so beautiful and peaceful and we couldn’t have asked for a better time! And loved that they were able to wash off at the bath station before getting in the car for our hour long drive home:)
This is a lovely place to spend time with your dog. It is scenic and quiet. Kathy greeted us when we arrived and walked us to the fenced-in space. She explained a few things and then left us to enjoy ourselves.
My dog ran and sniffed to his heart's content. Once he spotted the sheep and chickens he was very curious about them. Thankfully the fence is very secure and keeps dogs and the resident animals at a safe distance from each other.
We will definitely visit again.
Great place for doggy biathalons 😁. My 2 GSPs had a blast chasing ducks in the water and birds. It's like a race course for dogs to go around the pond.
We will be visiting here again for sure.
Make sure you get towels
We had an awesome time here! The pups loved the open space, water, and Kathy (mostly her cheese). We’ll definitely be back!
Another great visit! Kathy ran the SwiftPaw course for my dogs which was so fun for them. Can't wait to go back!
We had an awesome time!!! Pups went home exhausted and happy! Beautiful property. Drove over an hour to get there and planning on going back next weekend
Absolutely beautiful! My dog has never had so much fun! He got to run around off leash and play. This spot is very clean and serene. Kathy was so nice and welcoming. The lure course was so much fun...my dog is exhausted! We can’t wait to come back
This was a great space to let my dog roam off leash. There are a couple chairs and a bench there as well. Easy to access, and poop bags onsite in case you forget yours.
This place is fantastic! I think I enjoy it even more than my dogs!
This place is a gem. Our dogs love it! They run and run without any cares. It's so beautiful there. It was fun to watch the frogs this time. It's their mating season. There's plenty of open space for the dogs to really strectch out and open their stride. This was our second visit and we'll be back again.
Kathy is the sweetest! The fenced in area is well taken care of and beautiful! My dog had the best time swimming and running around ! My dog and I will definitely be coming back!
Kathy and her husband were very friendly. Kathy gave our pup some treats when our time was up! The property was amazing and our high energy pup was worn out after her hour. She was like another pup after she had all that space to run! You will not be disappointed if you book Kathys spot!
We had a great time at Kathy’s beautiful property! Cooper loved swimming in the pond and running off leash. Will definitely be back soon!
Wonderful hospitality, can't wait to go back! Perfect set up. Safe and well maintained. Was incredibly convenient to be able to give my dog a bath afterwards too!
Kathy is great and has a wonderful area for dogs to run. she was very helpful and nice and i would recommend her and will go again
Kathy was great and very helpful. my dog has severe anxiety, is fearful, dog reactive, food aggressive and she talked with me about it. She has a very nice property and the area for sniffspot is wonderful. I will take my dog back again.
This spot was amazing. All 3 of our dogs were exhausted afterwards. They loved the lure course too!
Amazing! The perfect spot. If you're looking for a safe, expansive area in a beautiful setting to let your dogs run free, this is the place. Kathy, the host, is a knowledgeable dog lover and owner. She is gracious and friendly. Our dogs had a blast and we enjoyed watching them run, romp and play without any worry of them encountering danger.
My year old sighthound, Lord Peter Wimsey, lives in the city and needs a country place to stretch his legs for a thundering run. The first thing I noticed when Kathy walked us into the spot was the secure fencing, and attention to detail in the secure gate.
Wimsey had a blast circling the large pond, that was not quite frozen solid. He's not a swamp hound (yet) so he was content to sniff and look and explore.
There was room for zoomies, and some good runs that might have got him the lure on a course. We ran and played for about 45 minutes, and then he was worn out. The next few days, he napped a bit more than usual and wore that big goofy sighthound smile.
We will be back in the near future for more running and play.
This was our second visit to this spot but this time it was in the snow. Our dogs still enjoyed their time here! We walked around the pond and it looked beautiful with the snow and frozen surface. Kathy was there to say hello as always! She is always very welcoming and friendly. The dogs missed the Turkey and sheep today but they had fun and are enjoying their nap time as I write this!
This was a lovely spot for the 3 dogs we had! They were so happy to be roaming free! This spot offers a huge pond that would be awesome for dogs who love water. There is a great amount of space for the dogs to chase and play and to explore away from their fur friends if they want to escape the wrestling. Our dogs were especially interested in the Turkey and sheep that were separated from the dog area but with a fence that allows the dogs to observe these animals up close. The area was clean and very dog friendly with toys and bags to clean up after your dog if you forget your bags while being way on the opposite side of the pond. It was strategically placed! Thank you!
Our pup, Stella, had a wonderful time sniffing around and enjoying nature. She was able to run to her full potential. Our family really enjoyed the space. Stella was wiped out when we got home. :)
This was our first Sniffspot experiance and it was wonderful. It was a warm fall day so the dogs enjoyed swimming in the pond. Plenty of room to throw a toy for a great game of fetch and several places for the humans to sit and enjoy the watching the pups have a great time. Can't wait to come back again.
This is a great property. The fence is secure even for tiny dogs. The pond is set off to the side so you can play in a huge lawn area or take walks around the pond. It's immaculately maintained. Bring towels and a water bowl and water. Kathy met me at the beginning to show me where to go. I would definitely come back and, as a dog trainer, am going to recommend this spot to my clients.
The dogs had such good time! Our foster pup enjoyed fetching + swimming in the lake, and our resident dog really loved running around and seeing the sheep! We also loved being able to sit on a few of the benches and seeing the beautiful flowers. We only stayed an 1.5 hours instead of 2 because our dogs got so tired!
We had a great time here on Saturday! Our puppy is an Australian Shepherd mix and needed some wide open (but fenced in) space to run. She loves the water and greatly enjoyed swimming and cooling off in the pond. Kathy's space is peaceful, well cared for, and spacious. We will definitely return in the future.
This was an awesome location for Baxter to run and explore and Kathy was extremely welcoming. The pond was great for him to cool off and he loved saying hello to the sheep and chickens in the neighboring field. I highly recommend for a place your dog can stretch their legs. We will definitely be visiting again!
Our boy Oscar had the best time! He loved walking/running around the lake, observing the sheep next door, and playing with the dog toys. We will definitely visit again!
This was a great spot for our 6 month old puppy! He would have swam in the pond all day! Lots of space to run!
We love this place! Our furry kiddos enjoy running, fetching, swimming and splashing in the pond. Property with a secure fence, clean area, poop stations, chickens and sheep can be seeing through the fence, but our dogs just saw them and kept playing. We enjoy the picnic table, tree shades, bench, and swing seat. Very nice place, wonderful and communicative owner. We will come back for sure!
Thank Kathy, we really enjoy it!
Kathy greeted us kindly and gave my reactive girls space to warm up, they were both happy to meet her and accept treats. :) The area is securely fenced with a path all the way around the pond. My girls had plenty of safe space to run, swim, and explore. We could hear some barking, which at home might trigger them, but they were so busy sniffing and playing they didn’t even notice. There are 2 waste stations, chairs and a picnic table. It was a joy to watch them run together off lead and follow their noses around the pond. We’ll be back for sure! Thank you, Kathy, for a great day and an awesome Sniffspot!
We drove over an hour to go here, but it’s worth it!! 🥰 very quiet and peaceful. Will definitely book again! 🥰 my foxhound has never swam before, and he LOVED swimming here. Owners are great, and take care of their property!
Most of the area was the pond. But there was plenty of space to use a chuck-it ball thrower toy. Our dogs swam a lot and fetched from the pond so bring some toys that float.
The pups had an awesome time splashing in the pond and running around the pasture.
