Dana’s property is perfect for any dog! There’s long grass and woods for the squirrel chasers, fish and frogs for the water observers, CLEAN pond for the swimmers (mud/sandy bottom but it’s not sticky or mucky, my dogs came perfectly clean which was such a bonus), and plenty of land for the ball fetchers. It was such a nice place to relax. There’s plenty of shade too right near the pond with chairs. There’s also a floating dock which could be a lot of fun if you and your dog like to jump into the water. We went at 10a and it was not buggy at all. We will definitely be going again! Thank you Dana for offering your property to those who don’t always trust dog parks and for those who have energetic dogs who need to run off leash to actually get some energy out. We appreciate it!

We had an amazing time on Saturday! We spent most of our 2 hours at the pond because Beau loved to swim and is learning to gain more confidence in the water. We’re excited for our next visit to explore more of the acreage as Lulu is a big sniffer and no doubt will love all the land to explore!

My dogs have the best time here! We’ve came twice and they’ll sleep for hours afterwards haha! Such great views and swimming area for your dogs!

We had the best day visiting this beautiful property! Our dogs loved the large pond and the large grassy area for them to run and explore freely. Dana (the property owner) is extremely kind and welcoming, and made us feel right at home. We can’t wait to visit again!

We did some worthwhile training and Melt had fun sniffing and retrieving - the training consisted of some Nose Work around the Adirondack chairs and under the rocks at that end of the pond and some field training running down the hill and into the pond. The geese put up with us. I got to meet the very nice neighbors when Melt was in the van and I was setting up. A totally great place!

Dana was very communicative and the space was amazing. There were lots of deer and woodchucks and my dog loved frolicking in the pond!

Dana's property is beautiful! Impeccably-maintained property and pond. Radar enjoyed jumping from the shore onto the floating dock and then out to retrieve her toy. We had a great time and will definitely be back before summer is over! Thank you!

This was just perfect! Wonderful views, nice gently uphill road to hike, so much to to love. We will definitely be back! The rain and fog were magical, we saw little red salamanders, and it was just a bit of heaven.

WOW!! That is all I can say! This place has breathtaking views and so much space to explore for the dogs. My pup looooved swimming in the little pond and sprinting back and forth up the hilly trail, which wore him out completely. It was a wonderful experience and we will be back again soon. Nancy, the host, was so lovely to chat with and very helpful.

It was a great experience for my pups. They were able to get in the pool and have a swim. The fenced in yard made the whole experience very enjoyable.

Kooper Blue and Kloud had a Grrreat Time at the Furrari's Barking Lot in Jermyn PA !! The Pool Was Clean, the host was accommodating of my attempt to beat that day's storm ( it didn't work, not her fault). Being Allowed IN The Pool with My Dogs is a Huge Plus. I Feel they're Safer and I can Better control them and guide them to the Steps if I'm Right There With them. Communication was quick. Kooper and Kloud are looking forward to a Return Visit before the end of summer !! Link to Photo Album Attached..

This spot was great!! There were plenty of pool toys, dog toys, and so much space! The seating area was clean and pretty, and lots of different spots where we could sit and enjoy the pups playing around. There was a water bowl available and a kiddie pool as well. The pool was clean and easily accessible. We did bring in our own towels and doggie bags to clean after our pups. The owner responded quickly to messages as well, definitely would reserve again! Thank you!

My pup had the greatest time here! We were traveling through and he really needed a safe place to run. The fence is sound and there are so many fun structures- my guy particularly loved the hill with the tunnel. HIGHLY recommend and want to come back!

There were so many things for the pup to explore and sniff and interact with and climb on! The fence was very secure and there were no other dogs around. He loved it!

We had a wonderful time! We got a snow storm the night before but the dogs loved running around in the snow. They shoveled out a section for us as well. We definitely will be back! The dogs did not want to leave.

I am from out of state and come to Elmira to visit family. I took them here in August because one of my pups is nervous and when we were here this time it was the first place I thought of even with how cold it is today. The spot was clean, well managed with lots of things to keep the dogs interest (toys, tunnels, hills, hay bales, agility equipment, etc) and very quiet. We LOVE coming here!!
