55So much fun! Very peaceful and beautiful!
55The enclosed area was plenty big for our boy to run and play with us. The obstacle courses were great to work with him on some new agility tricks too.
55Great time and Juli even created a Holiday display where we could get some pics!
45Beautiful set up, lots of space. Be aware because my dog escaped the Sniffspot area and was trampled by multiple horses, multiple different times landing us in the emergency vet
55Beautiful spot! Fresh water, toys, poop bags, etc. Everything we could need.
55Lots of smells to sniff, the pups loved running around and the agility equipment and all the different smells. If you have an escape artist, there are some holes in the fencing at the bottom so this is something to watch out for. One of mine got out twice but luckily he has a decent recall so I just put him on the long line for the rest of our time. W
55Nice facility!
55Such a gorgeous property. There are a few prickly plants so I'd advise against flip flops. Our dogs LOVED the pool and I got my dog to do some agility stuff. Perfect length for a Chuck-it throw.
55Fun spot with plenty of room to play a great game of fetch! Awesome to have an agility setup there and very nice for water to be left out. Our dogs loved the pool! The only issue is one of the dogs we have is an escape artist, and he may very likely could have squeezed out under the fence, which was not 100% secure on the bottom. We kept him on leash anyway since he plays “catch me if you can” usually when it’s time to go!
55Lots of space to run and explore!

Description

Beautiful, quiet, rustic half acre fully enclosed former horse paddock available for dogs to roam and play off leash in a safe environment. It's out in the country so off the beaten path. On rare occasion neighbor dogs can be heard barking but are never seen. The paddock is on the northern part of the property far from the road. See photos. May see horses grazing and I can be on hand to help find the spot. :) Your dog(s) will sleep well after an hour of fun romping!

    Host replied: This is a first for our horses and a really great reminder why you shouldn't let your dogs enter a horse paddock. The Sniffspot was checked prior to and after your visit and no holes in the fencing were found. I am relieved to hear your dog survived being trampled by multiple 1200 pound animals multiple times, though. What a miracle! ❤️

    Host replied: So glad you had a good time. You're right that the spot is not the best for dogs that test fencing, are diggers or escape artists. Looks like you still had a 5 star experience though!

Welcome from the Oak Ridge Standard Poodles and their humans! We invite you to stop by and visit! The yard is fully enclosed with a 6 foot bamboo privacy fence and there is plenty of room to run and play. You'll have full access to a yard level deck, two patios, and a fire pit. There are chairs and tables in various spots year round. When the weather allows, there are additional items including a sectional couch, dog cots, and hammocks as well as lawn games and a speaker/radio upon request. During your visit, you'll have access to a freshly filled gravity water bowl, dog treats, a few toys, towels, wipes, and more! There will be regular sized poop bags as well as larger plastic bags for any cleanup needs you may have. We also provide bottled water for the humans as well as sanitizer if needed. The resident dogs cannot see you from anywhere in the yard, even if your pups wander to the top of the stairs. You may hear neighborhood children at the nearby park. One of our next door neighbors has dogs that could be outside in their fenced yard and may see you upon arrival. However, once you are inside the sniff spot, those dogs will not be able to see you. Guest Wi-Fi: Network-sniffspot Password-sniffspot Parking/Security- We strongly prefer that you pull into the driveway and park on the left side close to the house/garage. Once parked, this area is not visible to our dogs from inside the home, which means they are less likely to bark hello greetings. 🐩 It also means the curious/friendly/inquisitive neighbors will not approach you. Gated access to the sniff spot is on the left side of our home just a few feet from the designated/recommended parking area. The gate is secured with a lock that is opened with a code. You may wish to unlock the gate first and then get your pup out of the vehicle. Security cameras monitor all outdoor spaces. We look forward to your visit and welcome any recommendations in order to make the Oak Ridge Sniff Spot your go-to destination! 🐩
