    My pups had an amazing time!!

    This yard is very well kept in a quiet neighborhood. It was perfect for our two crazy dogs. One of them isn't friendly to cats or small dogs, so he doesn't get walks around our neighborhood. Both of them are escape artists, so we used lunge lines. If your dogs are prone to sailing over fences like ours, you might want to do that, although the fence is solid all the way around. The hosts were very accommodating before and after, checking in with us to see how things went. I definitely recommend!

    Host replied: Thanks so much for visiting! The “unfriendly” one is welcome to harass any squirrels or birds in our yard. This is a safe space 😂

    Gunner had so much fun! He loved the space to run and especially the long stretch of grass where we can throw his ball back and forth!

    Host replied: So glad you and Gunner had fun!

    Beautiful big backyard. Our dogs had a great time. Hosts left out toys and treats which was very thoughtful. Neighbor dog did come out to see what was going on. He quietly watched and didn’t rush the fence or bark. There was one area in the fence where our small terriers could have fit through near the telephone pole. But other than that, the fence was secure.

    Host replied: Thanks so much Laura! I’ll check out that area asap.

    A great yard for my pup to run and explore!!

    Host replied: Thanks so much Lucie!

  • Sunee T., Jan 21, 2023

    This was our first sniff spot experience and it was great! The yard is clean and secure and Niko and Ellie had a great time! The neighbors dog was out but he didn’t approach the fence and was very friendly.

    Host replied: So glad you had fun! Duke is the pup next door. He’s on an ecollar so is usually scared to approach the fence but feel free to pet if he does! He’s a sweetie!

  • Hannah P., Jan 16, 2023

    Kali loved her first sniff spot! There is a large dog next door who barks, but is super friendly. Kali was unbothered :) Would definitely recommend.

    Host replied: Thanks so much Hannah! Hope you & Kali come back soon.

  • Mathea K., Jan 15, 2023

    Great spot! The pups loved it! 10/10

    Host replied: Thank you!

  • Kelli T., Dec 30, 2022

    This was our first trip using SniffSpot so I wasn’t sure what to expect. It felt a little weird just walking into someone’s yard, but I got over that quickly. The yard is nice and felt very welcoming. Lots of places to sit and enjoy the view. It was the perfect size for Willow to run some energy out. We will definitely be back!

    Host replied: Thanks so much Kelli! Glad you felt welcome. Come back soon!

Meet your host

I’m Karrie. Myself and my girlfriend, Catherine, and our Mountain Cur: Lincoln. We live on an almost 1 acre lot and Lincoln absolutely loves running, sniffing around, and chasing squirrels. We hope your pup will enjoy their time too!
