Adam’s 1 Acre Fully Fenced In/Secure/Private/Out of the city Dog Park

I live on 4.5 acres and have about 1 acre fully fenced off. You and your pup or pups will be away from other houses and in the country. No city shenanigans. No other animals loose on the property and you have it all to yourself. I have a pup pool and it is K9 friendly, safe, and is 1 foot deep. Just added an automatic tennis ball launcher for the pups. Entrance would be down road on Cedar Niles, then left into my driveway that is north of my external shop, and the drive leads you straight to my fenced off area (see map in the photo section). I have signage to guide you in. Property including entrance to fenced off area monitored and recorded by security cameras (They will alert me when you arrive and leave). As you can see with the pictures, I have a main open play area and then trails going through the thicker/overgrown grass. There is a 55g freshwater barrel and a drink tub for your pup right inside the entry and you can't miss it when you walk in. I have an umbrella set up to get you out of the sun (You can wind it up and down) and chairs to relax on while the pup or pups play. I have a TON of complimentary toys provided and LOTS of tennis balls for you pup or pups if you don’t have any (Please just put them all back). Dog poop baggies provided and at two different areas when you walk in. Trash bucket on-site to throw away dog poop and trash to keep the area clean. I have 150ft of patio lighting and an LED flood light around the main area of the Sniff Spot. The lights are bright and now you can book late evening into sundown, even night visits if you choose. I am in a profession where I can work nights and sleep during the day. My Sniff Spot is open 24/7 and I also cater to the day sleepers and night awake folks. You can book at 2:00am if you choose. The main area of the Sniff Spot is fully lit with the hung patio lights. Pictures are posted. Please clean up after yourself and leave everything as it was. This is very important for the next guests, my Sniff Spot stays VERY busy, and I at times I don't have time to inspect my SS before the next bookings. Don’t hesitate to contact to let me know anything to make your experience at my SS better!

The engaging environment was perfect for my small, older dog who doesn’t just run around in the yard for the sake of it but loves to explore! Thank you!

The best Sniff Spot we’ve been to! We booked this spot last-minute during a cross-country road trip, and Audrey was so communicative, accommodating, and thoughtful, even leaving towels, toys, and treats out for us. Safe and secure fence and not a hazard or danger in sight (trust me, our two large dogs get into everything, and there wasn’t a single thing that concerned me in this yard). This Sniff Spot was an absolute delight for our dogs and for us, our dogs played hard and slept harder afterwards, and we enjoyed the shady and comfortable backyard oasis. Book this Sniff Spot!!!

We had a fabulous time at Audrey's and will be back on a regular basis. We haven't even begun working on recall, and I still would recommend Audrey's place for exercise and stimulation. We did not do the pool so I can't comment on that area, and I agree with the prior review that blocking off the hot tub in the long-run would add security. For us, that was not issue, nor were gaps in boards (50-lb dog). The yard is a beautiful area with lots of landscaping that added to my pup's sniffari experience. There are two patches of more extended grass that was perfect for throwing toys (that Audrey provided) and getting out the zoomies. My pup, who gets walked four times/day, but doesn't get to relax and run off leash was laying happily in the grass after half an hour.

Audrey's yard was perfect for our 2 medium and large pups. It was spacious for them to run and explore and she even provided potty bags, toys, and treats! The pool is a perfect touch, but if you have a big dog it might be tricky getting them in and out. Definitely worth trying though, we definitely did! We plan on making this sniffspot a weekly family activity for us. Thank you for sharing your yard with us, Audrey!!

Great space for my doggo! My dog had a blast and so did I. Plus, the host left a bowl of green beans for him to munch on (his faves). Definitely will book Audrey’s Sniffspot again!

Beautiful yard with plenty of room to run and play. My 3 dogs really enjoyed the space. They are reactive with other dogs so they don’t get to go to many places off leash. Would definitely come again.

My German Shepherd and I loved this spot! It was very easy to find and in a quiet neighborhood. The fence was tall and secure so I didn’t have to worry about my dog jumping it or finding a place to slip out. There were several dog toys as well as waste bags provided. We will definitely book this spot again!

Draco had an absolute blast here! There was so much to sniff and check out that he spent the first 15 minutes just trotting around. When he was ready to play, there was so much space! The lawn was cut and looked lovely, and there was a hose and water bowl for us to use. There was also a shady spot under a tree that Draco made his home base to cool off. When I first booked, Joyce was transparent about the gate being wonky because of the humidity. She let me know ahead of time that it was closed with a bungee cord. I had to get creative with it when closing the gate because it was initially loose enough for my dog to push it open, but I was able to secure it easily enough and had no issues. The fencing is sturdy and seems very secure for bigger dogs. There are a few gaps that might be an issue for small dogs. My only suggestion for improvement for this spot would be to have a chair outside for dog owners. :) All in all, a great first Sniffspot experience and we will definitely be back!!
