Hi! 👋 welcome to our spot! Just want to disclaim that we are brand new to this and are trying to navigate what people want most out of a great Sniffspot ☺️ We are making improvements to our spot every day based on guest feedback and making plans for the future as well! We hope you’ll come check us out! Our land is partially wooded, with open spots to run. There is a short roundabout path but the woods you can walk through too (I take my dogs through the woods you just might want to wear tear-resistant clothes). We are working on creating more designated paths now that we’ve seen some interest! **Concerning the cleanliness percentage**: This percentage was brought down due to one review so I want to explain: We have wildlife come through a LOT, coyotes especially, so there might randomly be bones and things to be aware of, and a fair share deer poop! We try to let the wild be wild because we love our wildlife and want a nice spot for them too. Otherwise there is lots of good sniffing and running to do. There is some burdock we are working on eliminating slowly (we do not use chemicals). No other real hazards you wouldn’t find on a normal wilderness hike. We do have some stuff by the house but not out on the actual land. **The property has a ‘fence’ so as you explore you can see where our property ends as you walk with no worry of going off our land, but it is not an appropriate fence for containing dogs that need it.**
Please park on the road or near the entrance until spring thaw or it dries up! pretty muddy on the path. The riverbed, field and fenced area are all open for play! A couple paths are a little squishy but you'll be able to see ahead. The road is wide open so it's safe to park there. Your car is visible to traffic. We have a beautiful piece of land with a mostly fenced perimeter and 1/3 acre fully fenced doggy play area. If you drive in by the picnic table you are in the center of 18 acres to play on and will be quite a distance from the road. There are mowed walking paths to the beautiful Kinnickinnic river, far away from other people and animals. You and your dog will love it here! The river is cold and easy for dogs to hop in and out, (not easy for humans right now). If you want to keep them out of the water there is about 10 acres of open field where you park, separate and above the river so you don't need to have them down by the water at all. (although most dogs gravitate to there!)
Our property is a dog’s paradise! We’ve got an open backyard, wooded trails, and an orchard out back with tall grasses. We keep the trails and orchard mowed for walking, but your dog will have ample woods, puddles, and other adventures at their disposal! Come winter, we often snowmobile our trails, so they’re walkable all year round. Since we live in the woods, we occasionally have trees fall down on our 5 foot welded wire fence. Please be mindful if your dog is an exit seeker, although we walk the fence and mend any spots we see often. We’re excited for more pups to enjoy our land!
Opportunity Woods is open as of July 1! It offers 5+ acres of hilly woods and long grass meadow surrounded by a 7 foot high fence. Several benches will be placed along the rustic trail, but of course, there is no need to stay on the trail! A water bowl can be found and filled from the human-potable water hydrant, where you will also find a wading pool for dog and human use. There is a roofed shelter just up the hill from the hydrant, where you will find wire-wheel tables and chairs for sitting, playing games, hanging out or having a picnic. The shelter gives you a birds-eye view of Opportunity Farm, where sheep graze the neighboring paddocks.
*IT IS VERY MUDDY! FEEL FREE TO INQUIRE ABOUT TRAIL CONDITIONS PRIOR TO YOUR VISIT WITH EASY CANCELLATIONS* Some days blocked due to muddy conditions. Will open the calendar as things dry out! **Fostering a dog? Message for special discounts** This is our private residence. Our dogs love walking the trails, sprinting through the woods, and diving through the prairie grasses. We love offering other pups the chance to enjoy it too! The trails are mostly wooded, and there is a small ravine with a creek. There are areas of trails, woods, prairie, and mowed grass. There is a barbed-wire fence marking the property line around the property, however it is not fully-fenced. Your dog will need to know to stay close enough to you or respond to your calls. **No shared water dish provided currently due to Canine Flu going on in the state. If you would like to access a hose to fill your own containers please let us know** 10% of all profit is donated to dog rescue organizations
