What people say about dog parks around Macon, Georgia
Truly an oasis! For both doggies and their humans! The yard is so well maintained, and the owner left water, toys, a water bowl, bug spray, there's even a "digging area" which I thought was super cute. So many beautiful plants, my pup couldn't get enough of all the smells! I sat back and enjoyed the view whe she ran around, which i must say was pretty impressive. We'll be back!
Great spot, Angela was very communicative and responded quickly. Obviously, you'll need a dog who can come when called, but we didn't have any issues with the lack of fencing.
Remi loved being able to run and play in this beautiful area! It’s well maintained and there was a chair for me and water for my pup. I highly recommend them if you’re like me and don’t have a fenced in yard!
Absolutely the Best Host! Fabulous property! My boys are in 💕! We definitely will be back! Thank you for an unbelievable experience ☺️!
This sniffspot was AWESOME! My dog absolutely loved it. It's a short hike up to the field but the trail is easy and marked well. Once there, the field was HUGE and my dog had a blast sniffing around. There was a neighbors dog that we could hear but couldn't see. The fence was totally fine to keep my dog enclosed but is low in some areas (3.5ish feet) so something to be mindful of if you have a jumper. There was a lot of shade when we went (1030am) but there may not be as much if the sun is directly overhead. However, there is a canopy set up for shade along with 2 chairs.
Margaret left out water, bug spray, sun screen, tennis balls and poop bags. While these are all things a bring with me it's nice to know it's available if needed. Margaret is great at communicating with you and answering any questions you may have. The first time I booked with her I got a flat tire on the way there. It was obviously beyond the cancelation time so I wasn't able to cancel but she reached off to snuffspot on my behalf and got me refunded.
Perfect walking/trail spot! We wanted a calm place to take our senior reactive dogs for a walk and this was perfect. There is a long trail that circles around the property, it’s well maintained, clean and very easy to walk with shade off and on! My husband and I were very happy and our pups were wore out! We will be back often!
Great property with plenty of open space for the dogs to roam. We went around the perimeter two times perfectly in the two hours we had booked. Host greeted us and was very friendly.
This is a great spot, my dog loved it! She found lots to sniff and explore. Can’t wait to come back.
Host was super nice and sent pictures of the property when I asked. The yard was big and was offered a pool if needed! I’ll definitely be back.
Absolutely wonderful spot! Such a friendly host and amazing facility. They provided balls and a chuck it. My dog has so much fun running and ball chasing. But seeing the goats was he favorite part. Definitely would recommend and come back!
This place is amazing! There is a big tree there that is gorgeous! And the water is great! My senior dog had a blast! Directions were straight forward and easy to find the place.
I didn’t mind because we like adventure and climbing but be aware it is a bit of a climb down to the creek/river water area and is slippery but as long as you don’t mind a little dirt and work it is perfectly fine! 😊 I will always recommend this place! I was throughly impressed from the first visit. I will definitely be back a lot more with my dog and others.
Beautiful spot, super clear directions to the site and to the creek, which was clear and clean and lovely. One caveat: this is maybe not the spot if your dog doesn't have good recall. I had to slide down the muddy steep bank to retrieve my dog, who was having the time of his life and had sudden-onset deafness. And maybe bring doggie life preservers to be super safe: some spots are deep.
So much fun!! It is a little steep near the water so just be mindful of that if you have mobility restrictions
A little hard to find, I went past it at first because it looks like a right of way. The rope across the driveway had an orange triangle. My pups had a fantastic time and slept the whole way home! Lots of sniffs and plenty of space for zoomies! Make sure you bring a towel in your car and wear shoes you can get dirty.
This was an excellent spot for our two large pitty pups. Easy to find right off the exit from 75. Clear instructions. Large water feature that wore the dogs out. Water clear & running so no concerns about stagnant water or unseen items. Although you can’t see where properly ends or fence - no concerns for our dogs who tend to stay within sight. Def will be back & highly recommend.
We had a great time. The dogs loved the stream and there was plenty of room to run and explore. It rained a bit, but under the cover of the trees we hardly felt it. The stream is just a short from the parking area, so we plan to bring chairs and refreshments for the hoomans next time. It does get muddy if it had rained and of course by the stream, but nothing wearing an older pair of shoes can't take care of.
Amazing spot! It’s definitely muddy as you get deeper into the property but my dog loved it! Host was awesome and super responsive. We will definitely be back.
***GREAT*** sniff spot already and excited to see what additional features will come in the future!
My 3 pups loved their time here, from seeing deer on the way in to playing in the creek!
Awesome communication from host and wry much looking forward to our next visit!
This was our first Sniffspot experience and it was a great one! The host was super communicative and the spot was excellent. Exactly as described and pictured. As other reviews have said, it is muddy so make sure you plan for that, but it’s so much fun. Our dog had a BLAST! We’ll definitely be back.
Nice hidden gem for sure! Make sure you take extra clothes as it gets a little muddy on your way down to the creek. Will be coming back!
What other types of private dog parks are available?
Dog water parks
Many hosts have added water features like pools and/or are nearby lakes or rivers.
It is important for dogs to have off leash exercise to sniff and run. But the free and open nature of public dog parks has drawbacks. There could be aggressive dogs, disease transmission and cleanliness issues. For this reason, many dog behaviorists discourage visiting public dog parks and recommend Sniffspot's private dog parks. Sniffspot private dog parks only allow one guest to book at a time and are not open to the public, which solves many of these issues.
Are dog parks safe?
While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks much safer than public dog parks. With Sniffspot all bookings are private for just you and dogs you bring with you and we require all dogs to be vaccinated (or have equivalent titers). All Sniffspot locations are vetted and reviewed by guests so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog. 8% of reviews on Sniffspot visits in the Macon area are 5 stars.
How do I know if a dog park works for my dog?
You can filter Sniffspot dog parks by fencing and distractions. If your dog doesn't have good recall, you can visit one of our 24 fully fenced dog parks in the area. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our 3 off leash areas where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby. You can also filter locations to avoid other domestic animals and people. We also recommend reading reviews and reaching out to the host with any questions.
The Macon area has 6 Sniffspot locations with private trails for you and your dog to walk or hike. Dogs can generally be off leash on Sniffspot trails. The most popular trail is PeaceMaker’s Private Dog Park In Knoxville.
