55This is a beautiful place! There were plenty of toys available, we had a great time.
55This was an amazing spot, and so cute! The host goes the extra mile by having towels and blankets. They even have refreshments. Our pups had such a special day here.
55My dog and I really enjoy coming here! Peaceful yard and plenty of room to run!
55Lulu had a super cute photo op after a great hour of hard play & sniffing. Thank you for the set up!
55This gem has everything you need! Towels, fresh water, humans and dog snacks, cover (we came in the rain), and more! Our puppy is only 7lbs so weโ€™re always concerned about gaps in fencing. The fence here was great! There were a few low spots that my anxious brain made me notice but we just loved some plant pots & bricks to make sure she couldnโ€™t escape.
55This time we celebrated a puppy birthday, and WOW!!! I want my own birthday celebrations to be this amazing!
55Never a bad visit! Always clean and welcoming
55Lots of space to run and a beautiful setting to relax
55Spot is always clean and offers a lot of landscape interest for my pupper! Hosts are wonderful - they went the extra mile when I left some of my belongings behind! Weโ€™ll be back! Thank you!
55Great spot!

Prior guests only. Appointments will need to be coordinated with the Host prior to booking - calendar will only be opened once approved. Guests will also need to provide current vaccination records for rabies and DHPP (distemper) for each dog visiting. Dog(s) must be UTD. Each dog must be at least 1 year old and have received their 1 year vaccines. ///////////////////////////////////// Please let me know if your pup is dog/people reactive prior to your visit so I can coordinate with my neighbor.โค๏ธ ๐——๐—˜๐—ฆ๐—–๐—ฅ๐—œ๐—ฃ๐—ง๐—œ๐—ข๐—ก - The property is just over an ๐™–๐™˜๐™ง๐™š and a mix of lawn, flower beds, paths, and work/storage areas. Overall, it is fairly flat and dogs love to ๐™ง๐™ช๐™ฃ ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™ฅ๐™ก๐™–๐™ฎ for hours at a time not to mention all the great sniffing spots. There are open areas for dogs to stretch their legs and chase each other and flowers, shade and seating for their human companion(s). There is a ๐™ข๐™–๐™ฃ-๐™ข๐™–๐™™๐™š ๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™ง๐™š๐™–๐™ข (more detail below) in the back that depending on rainfall, may be running full or just at a trickle. It is ideal for your pup to explore and cool off in. The yard offers plenty of great ๐™ฅ๐™๐™ค๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™จ๐™ฅ๐™ค๐™ฉ opportunities to take tons of pictures throughout the various seasons. The yard is a ๐˜พ๐™š๐™ง๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™›๐™ž๐™š๐™™ ๐™’๐™ž๐™ก๐™™๐™ก๐™ž๐™›๐™š ๐™ƒ๐™–๐™—๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ฉยฎ, we are trying to help nature where and when we can. The flower beds have been designed for local critters - birds, turtles, pollinators, etc so absolutely no killing of any bees, butterflies, spiders, turtles, snakes, birds or other wildlife you may find. It also means you will likely encounter gnats, mosquitos and possibly ticks - all great bird food but not so nice for us humans and our pups. So please be sure your pup is current on their preventatives. We do provide bug spray for you to use - just be sure to use in the lawn and not near any of the flower beds. In the summer months grass may get a little taller to help out the fireflies. If you can, take a cool pic to share - we'd love to see it. Do a photo safari. ๐—ช๐—˜๐—˜๐—ž๐—˜๐—ก๐——๐—ฆ & ๐—›๐—ข๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐——๐—”๐—ฌ๐—ฆ - Typically set for 1 hour appointments and reserved for Members. If appointments remain available, I will open some time to non-members the Thu/Fri before. If you are interested in an appointment longer than 1 hour, please reach out and we'll see if we can accommodate. ๐— ๐—˜๐— ๐—•๐—˜๐—ฅ๐—ฆ๐—›๐—œ๐—ฃ - If interested, send us a message - we'd love to talk with you more about it. Please note, you must have visited The Secret Oasis at least once prior to becoming a member. A membership could save you $2, $8, $24, $48 or more per month depending on the Membership package created. Plus, you can book up to 14 days ahead vs just 7 days for non-members and you get first choice on weekends and holidays. Memberships can be a bit confusing so please reach out if you have any questions - we'll do our best to answer them and help find the right package for you. ๐—ฆ๐—ก๐—œ๐—™๐—™๐—ฃ๐—”๐—ฆ๐—ฆ - We don't offer expanded discounts but you will get the basic 10% discount if you are participating in the program.

That said, Mother Nature adds to it so we do recommend your pup have his/her ๐™‡๐™š๐™ฅ๐™ฉ๐™ค vaccine. The stream is usually shutdown in the winter months and some water remains at the end to help support the frogs overwinter. Please do not allow digging or rough play in the stream - we want to keep it in good shape for all our guests to enjoy and avoid costly repairs. If it is important to your visit that the stream is running and at what level (full/trickle) please reach out to the Host to check its status. ๐——๐—ข๐—š ๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐— ๐—œ๐—ง - Our site is set for a 4 dog limit. If you would like to bring additional dogs, please send a message. The request will be considered on a case by case basis. If you want a key date/time, I recommend securing it with a reservation for one dog and then updating the reservation once we have talked. Note, there are some spots at the bottom of the fence a small dog (cat size) might be able to get under - they are meant for our cats. If you are bringing a small dog, let me know and we can block the openings ahead of time. ๐—ฉ๐—˜๐—›๐—œ๐—–๐—Ÿ๐—˜ ๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐— ๐—œ๐—ง- Maximum of 2 vehicles per reservation.

Parents are responsible for any and all damages their child does. ๐—˜๐—ซ๐—ง๐—ฅ๐—”๐—ฆ - Extras will change depending on the season. If you don't see something you might like, let us know and we'll be happy to consider it. There are two generic party options but if you would like to customize one, please reach out and we'll put a package together for you. I hope we answered a lot of your questions, if not feel free to send us a message. It may take 24 hours to respond but usually much faster. Please come and enjoy our private little spot and take lots of pictures! We love seeing happy pups. โค๏ธI

We have lived in the area for 20+ years and in Lorton for over 10. We love critters and have tried to make our yard friendly for wildlife. The yard is a Certified Wildlife Habitatยฎ, so expect there will be birds, squirrels, and pollinators to include bees. We also work with Virginia German Shepherd Rescue (VGSR) as a volunteer and a foster, so if you have any questions about VGSR, just ask. Currently, we have 5 dogs (3 mutts, 1 GSD, and 1 Foster GSD thru VGSR) and 5 cats.
