    What a wonderful space! This was my first visit to one of the Sniffspot properties and it was so nice to enjoy it, with such clear instructions and helpful tips. I felt very comfortable and Frankie🐶 did too! She had to survey the whole perimeter of the fence first then she enjoyed climbing the huge rock outcroppings, and enjoyed exploring all the woodland paths. This space must be gorgeous in the spring when the mountain laurel is all in bloom! I will be coming back, and will probably bring one of Frankie’s friends so they can enjoy it together🤗 Thank you Sara… We appreciate you sharing your incredible property with us all♥️🐶

    Host replied: We’re so happy you enjoyed the property and are looking forward to spring. So are we. Enjoy!

    This is a great spot! Our girls loved running through the woods and checking out all the nooks and crannies this property provides. So much to explore. As a nervous mom I worried about the fence being secured all the way around because it’s such a big property but it was obviously well maintained and secure. We will definitely be back!

    Host replied: Your pups indeed look like they had a blast! So happy to host. Come back anytime.

  • Steve E., Feb 2, 2024

    Josef always has a great time bounding through the woods.

  • Betty C., Jan 15, 2024

    Second time we visited, this time there was snow!! Benji had a blast, again non stop wagging his tail, exploring and sniffing. The wooded area was beautiful and really feels like a private hike. The grassy snowy area was perfect to play fetch. Amazing

    Host replied: Happy you had a great second visit! The snow does add another interesting exploration opportunity doesn’t it?

  • Betty C., Dec 21, 2023

    Beautiful huge property with big grassy area next to fun wooded area. Nicely fenced in. Lots to explore and Benji found his new favorite squeaky toy on the ground. Jumped on rocks, sniffed some trees, ate some leaves. His tail was wagging the whole hour!

  • Steve E., Dec 18, 2023

    Always a fun experience.

  • Emma M., Dec 8, 2023

    Beautiful spot! My dog prefers woods over lawn and this place is so amazing for that! Will be back :)

    Host replied: Awesome pics. Your pup is camo :) Glad you had a nice time.

  • John S., Dec 4, 2023

    Amazing!

    Host replied: Glad you enjoyed

  • Katelyn S., Nov 14, 2023

    First time using Sniff Spot, and we can’t wait to return to Sara’s large fenced yard! My friend and I visited so that our dogs could play unleashed for the first time😍Maple the shepherd mix tried an agility hurdle for the first time and nailed it. Dougie the beagle mix loved the sniffing options - grass, boulders, woods. Sara’s instructions were clear and welcoming, so it was an easy, hassle free visit. We and our dogs are over the moon, thanks Sara.

    Host replied: Sounds like a great time. Come back anytime.

    Great Sniff Spot! Lots of room for the pups to run.

    Host replied: Glad you enjoyed!!!
