55Great yard with an amazing pool! It was so much fun to have our 4 dogs enjoy themselves playing in the yard and swimming in the pool! The host is absolutely great, really thought of everything to make this a wonderful sniffspot experience! Clear instructions are provided. Toys, towels, sunblock, and water bowls are available for use. The entire yard is very clean and welcoming, including the pool. The pool water temperature is perfect (controlled/heated). We had a great time; the attention to detail the host provides makes this an even better experience! Highly recommend! We will definitely be returning. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful space! The fun we had has become a highlight of our summer!
55Best place ever, we loved it so much!!!!!
55This private dog park was beautiful. The landscaping was very nice and the pool was clean and warm. I only wish my dog Chica liked to swim but I found out she didn't. My friend and I really enjoyed the swimming pool.
55We feel everybody should know about this spot. The backyard was beautiful and pristine. Lisa went above and beyond in providing extra amenities such as towels, sunscreen, dog treats, toys and fresh water. It was such a fun and relaxing day for all of us. 10/10 would recommend and we will be back.
55Such a great experience! Luna & I had a blast. Thank you so much for allowing us to play in your yard!

Additional rules

Heated in-ground 16x39 salt water* pool is available for dog use for an extra charge. Please see our list of EXTRAS. Our pool is considered a “sport pool”. It is 5-feet deep in the center and gradually more shallow as you exit either end. There are lounge chairs and tables available with towels for guest use. We’ll also have the water hose pulled out if you need to refill the water bowl or if your dog would rather play with the water hose. Our pool is heated and will be a comfortable ‘walk right in’ temperature. If you have a high-shedding dog, please brush them out before your visit.  If the swimming pool is not booked or chosen as an extra, the safety cover will be closed, and there will be no access to the pool. **Dog Life Jackets are not provided. *A saltwater pool is an alternative to a traditional chlorine pool. Although you don’t add chlorine tablets to a saltwater pool, it does still contain chlorine. It just has a smaller amount that’s generated through the filter system. A saltwater pool contains 10 times less salt than the ocean. There’s around 3,000 ppm (parts per million) salinity in a saltwater pool. By comparison, there’s 35,000 ppm in the ocean. Some people and pups find this type of pool less harsh on their hair, eyes, and skin than a chlorinated pool.

We have 3 rescue dogs that originally came from Texas. They love playing in our yard, and would like others to enjoy it as well.

Amy's 3+ Acre Fully Fenced Private Dog Park In Muskego

Great property to walk with large and small dogs. The entire back lot is fully fenced and plenty of running space for frisbee or ball. Disposable water bowls can be found in our welcome bin. A hose will be available in summer and a water jug in winter. A small patch of uncut brush in the back is great for jumping sniffing and tracking the high branches are cleared for humans to also walk through:) located near wetlands some of the fencing extends through overgrowth or wetland and brush/scrub tree areas it can be damp in wet weather times. The ENTIRE BACK lot is fully secure, originally built to contain our dachshunds and our late Great Dane. Because we own several small dogs (and also a large dog) ourselves it is checked regularly for any holes, or wear. (If you see any holes please let us know ASAP) Our dogs will be kenneled when you visit! Extra notes: *We live near a gun range and during hunting seasons and summer primarily range noise can be heard in the distance. Weekdays are quieter in general for all noises :) * Please note in spring/ fall thaw and heavy rain parts of our yard so stay soggy and even wet for some time -appropriate footwear should be considered (rubber boots are ideal)-we have towels for dogs in our welcome bin. Canine Respiratory Illness! Here’s what we are doing! -disposable one-visit bowls are to be found in our bin, please use them for your dogs and then dispose of them before you go or take them home. -we will continue to disinfect the toys provided at least once a day with our dog-safe disinfectant Effer-San. -We ask that you place used toys in the used toy bin after use. - in the summer the patio and grass near the house will be sprayed with our dog-safe disinfectant Wishy-Wash once a day. -We do this for our dogs as well as for yours

Reilly's 2 Acre Fully Fenced Play Space with Wooded Paths

2+ acres of fully fenced (5 ft) small wooded paths (larger unfenced hiking space available in extras) and a large grass area to run. The fence is partially chain link and partially wire pulled between wood posts. The terrain is a mix of grass and wooded areas with small walking paths through the woods. A basket of various dog toys will be available along with a seating area, treats, and water for both you and your dog! Swing set available for kids to use, at your own risk and under your own supervision, while their pet runs around, however; the trampoline is strictly off-limits. Check out our extras that you may add, including premium dog treats from Mountain Dog Cookie Co, a kiddie pool for your dog in the summer months, additional unfenced space for your dog to explore their primal instincts (perfect for sporting dogs!), and the ability to add extra dogs to your reservations. Canine Respiratory Illness, what are we doing about it? We've taken a few extra precautions to keep our visitors safe. In our welcome basket, you'll find disposable bowls with a water jug that you may use to fill up the bowl for your dog. Please dispose of your bowl in the garbage can next to the patio door. Additionally, toys in the basket will also be wiped down at least once per day with a pet-safe disinfectant. **The host is not responsible for any harm caused to you, your children, or your pets while using the swing set.**

Max's field of Sniffs in Paris, WI

Max is my puppy-brother who absolutely loves that field and all the smells. He moved up north and wants to share his special place with others who love to run wild in a field and splash in a creek. It is used as a hay field during the summer. during that time, it is long grass but after the season it is shorter and fun to walk down to the creek. Dogs like the tall grass as much as the short. There are mowed trails to get to the creek through the brush. Right now the creek is low from our summer drought but enough for them to splash in. It is not a groomed trail, just brush mowed, so it is uneven ground with rocks, sticks, etc to watch out for. It is nature so expect bugs. There will be some bug spray if you need it. There is a picnic table down by the creek to sit while the puppies play. It is also nice to just lay in the field and look up at the sky with your furry friend. Suggestions are always appreciated. This is my first time with sniffspot and still learning I have chuck-it balls and thrower to borrow. Please bring them back and hang them up so the next person can use them. I also have a 6ft leash to borrow if you forget yours and need one. I have included dog waste bags. Please do not use dumpster on site, instead use small garbage can near waste bags. Please look at the pictures to see where you can play. There are businesses at this location so you can expect to see cars and people on occasion. But they will not come up to you unless you ask a question or need help.
