Description

Poochie Garden is a sensory experience with plenty of shade and room to zoom! Warm-weather water features include a 2×3×1' pup pool for wading and splashing, plus a tiered ceramic fountain, both with solar-powered pumps. Turf includes bare dirt, cypress and cedar mulch, short grass, and large beds of tall ornamental grass as natural snuffle spots, plus a sand digging garden along with varied natural rock, cobblestone, and wooden deck walking surfaces - all securely contained within a 6-foot wooden privacy fence. Treat-tipping bottles, a rocker balance board, agility weaving-pole and jump-hurdle practice walk (for an intro, not for speed), a stump walk, a curated selection of toys, and plenty of other sensory experiences add to your pup's best day. Bring kibble or treats to challenge your hound to the mental stimulation of a puzzle or two. Pup-safe plantings of marigolds, spearmint, strawberry, catnip, wheat grass, lavender, thyme, oregano, phlox, and more offer your pooch plenty to explore, sniff, and nibble. Humans can rest in the chairs on the deck or in the garden and enjoy the sounds of water, chimes, and birds while your pooch plays. Seasonal and static picturesque photo ops are plentiful! Include a human friend or two and their dogs in your reservation if you'd like to share the garden experience! Note that there are a few steps and slopes into and around the yard that may impact access for those with mobility challenges and limitations. Poochie Garden is a certified Wildlife Habitat, so you may encounter birds, rabbits, toads, butterflies, spiders, bees, and other friends while you visit. Please enjoy their presence and do no harm.

Hazards

Exercise caution when walking on uneven natural rocks, on unleveled ground, through leaves and vines, and in tall grasses. Climbing roses on trellises do have thorns. Pup-safe plantings are marked; do not allow your dog to nibble on unmarked plants.

Extras

Garden Pawty$40

Celebrate your pup's special day at Poochie Garden! I provide homemade pup cups garnished with garden goodies for the guest of honor and each pal. I customize the "Celebrate" display with birth or gotcha age, hang the fancy cake decor, set out tiered cake interactive dog puzzle with Zuke's PB & Oat treats, provide photo props, and convert the digging garden to a ball pit for the occasion. Up to 8 humans may attend. *Book each dog - up to 4. *Book 2 hours minimum. *Requires 24-hour notice.

Self-Serve Garden Bath$20

Does your pup need a bath? I set up our XL Booster Bath with 3-point tether and provide the shampoo and towel so you can safely bathe right here in the garden! Booster Bath eliminates issues with home bathing: slipping and sliding, chasing the shampoo bottle (and your pup), backaches from bending over, lifting your pup into and out of the tub and messy bathroom cleanups. The serene garden setting makes bathing even more enjoyable! *Requires 2-hour advance purchase and heat index of 85° or more.

    We love this place!

    Host replied: That smile says it all! Thanks so much for loving our Spot and caring for it! We appreciate you both!

  • Anna S., Dec 18, 2023

    This spot is amazing! Our two beagle mixes loved taking in all the sights and smells. They were fascinated by all the plants. By the time we left, they were so tired that they snoozed the whole ride home. There were plenty of fun activities, including puzzles and an agility walk, which we’ll have to do next time when we can stay longer. We will be back for sure!

    Host replied: We are so glad to know that your pups enjoyed themselves and rested well after exploring! We look forward to your next visit!

  • Lynn S., Dec 9, 2023

    It was a great experience! Gwen has put so much time & effort into making this a fun, safe space for all the pups who visit. A beautiful garden for us to relax in as well as to play with our dog. Fun to watch him explore, too. Thank you, Gwen!

    Host replied: Seeing dogs play and explore in safe environments is so fulfilling! We are glad you enjoyed yourselves!

  • Nicole F., Dec 2, 2023

    My dog slept like a rock after hanging out here and sniffing all the smells :)

    Host replied: We are so glad the sniffies were so fulfilling!

  • Richelle A., Oct 9, 2023

    Aside from his bed, I think this is Courage's favorite place!

    Host replied: Awww! We love being Courage's happy place!! Thanks for such a warm fuzzy!

  • Jordyn J., Oct 1, 2023

    Gwen was so thoughtful! She provided everything and so much more! We had a great time. We will be back!

    Host replied: We are so glad to hear that you had a great time and look forward to seeing you again!

  • Mindy M., Sep 23, 2023

    This place was wonderful! The property is secure with all kinds of activities, for your pooch and yourself. The host definitely loves doggos and has thought of EVERYTHING when she created this beautiful space! ❤️❤️❤️ She even has photo op spots for pictures! I would have loved to have taken some pics, but being a beagle, all he cares about are the scents 😂 Thank you Gwen! Rhett loved to sniff and sure got a bunch of new ones today!

    Host replied: We do love doggos tremendously, and we so appreciate other humans who do, too! Thanks for letting Rhett enjoy himself in his favorite way today!

  • Richelle A., Sep 20, 2023

    As Courage ages, I love the enclosed and engaging environment for him to go wild and have fun safely!

    Host replied: We love having Courage play his little heart out here and hope for many years of graceful aging!

  • Taylor R., Aug 25, 2023

    The best place! My dog Comet enjoyed it and so did I. We didn’t stay very long because of the heat, but it was a whole lot of fun! 12/10

    Host replied: We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves despite the record heat and hope you'll visit again!

  • Gail L., Aug 19, 2023

    There are lots of things to explore in Poochie Garden. My dog is very high energy and curious, and he was tired but relaxed when he got home. He loved the water features.

    Host replied: We are so happy to hear that Poochie Garden can meet the needs of high-energy and curious dogs! Water just makes everything better, doesn't it? Thanks for visiting!

From hamsters to horses to huskies and more, my life story wouldn't be complete without mention of the fur babies I've loved! I am an Air Force veteran and former teacher who works at home. My husband and I spoil our rescue Pomsky. We built him a back yard of his doggy dreams, and we can't wait to share it with you and your pooch!
