    I brought my Great Dane to give him a chance to stretch his legs while I did homework. There were so many lovely spots for me to sit with my textbooks and even more things for my doggo to sniff and check out. The property is absolutely beautiful. The waterfall and pond were lovely to listen to. Thank you so much for the visit! Can’t wait to come back and play with Merlot!

    Host replied: So glad you and Ollie had a good time and you got to multitask! You were a great guest, welcome back anytime. Merlot would love a new friend!

    This backyard is wonderful!! Both my pups had an amazing time! The yard is very large with lots of places for puppy exploration. The waterfall and pond make it so peaceful and serene for owners as well!! It was very comfortable and welcoming. It would have been easy for me to bring my computer to do some work or a book to read. I will go back for sure. Thank you to the wonderful hosts.

    Host replied: Thank you so much, glad you and your pups had a good time and you felt at home! Welcome back anytime! 🙂

    Our dogs had a fantastic visit to Merlot’s Backyard. So so many places to sniff and explore. There was as much clean water as needed since we had access to a water hose and a water bowl. There were plenty of toys and interesting corners to explore. Our dogs hopped right into the pond and enjoyed a cool down on a hot day. The yard fence is completely secure with no holes or gaps in the fencing. Our dogs were free to explore every corner and did! They went home tired. Mission accomplished!!

    Loved this backyard and so did our dogs, the pond was a huge bonus and loved how much room they had.

    Such a beautiful backyard! There were toys and lots of fresh water for our dog. The yard was huge and lots of comfy cozy sitting areas. The host was very sweet and we can’t wait to come back. Our dog had a blast. Such a gem!

    Host replied: Awe thanks so much! Glad you & your dog had a blast! There’s no shortage of dogs toys here haha 😆
