Erika was VERY nice and tentative. The yard was a good size for my pup and was surrounded with toys. The farm animals are SO CUTE!!! ✨10/10 will book again✨ (don’t mind his shaven leg he hot neutered 4 weeks ago)

We loved our time at the red barn. Fenced in space to roam, some balls to kick around, very much to sniff, and best of all, some new friends on the farm for our little one. Elvis the pig is a sweetheart. Thank you, Erika!

Nice fenced in yard area at a farm. My dog enjoyed the toys and playing in/on the equipment. She was absolutely fascinated with the pigs and goats in the area next to the yard. We enjoyed our visit and hope to return

Super convenient location, right off the highway, and a great host! Our pups had a great time romping together safely in an enclosed area. Thank you, we’d love to visit again!

First time using the app. Erika’s location was exactly as described. It was also a beautiful fall day. We had lots of fun!

Had another great visit to this spot! My 2 reactive dogs can relax, even though they do bark at the goats a pigs a little, and have fun. And my fence jumper is contained so she can be off leash safely. And we found some treats as a promotional gift for a new store opening soon. Awesome evening!

Great place for our first off leash adventure. Our pup had a wonderful time running and playing. They left us a large kiddie pool for her to play in that she had a ball in. She got to meet her first goats and pigs too. We will definitely be back soon and often. Thank you for making Kinley’s first birthday such a happy day. ❤️🐶😀

Host was great! Answered all my questions before hand, very quickly I might add. Loved the location! Was a little confusing to where we were going but that could just be on me. 😂 Dogs had fun and would recommend!

Absolutely beautiful and so peaceful. The minute my dogs got out of the car they were so excited to be there, I let them off leash and they ran right for the water and never left. Even though not fenced there is a thick tree line to deter your dogs from roaming too far. We had a blast and cannot wait to come back

Beautiful place! I’m always nervous about unfenced places since our girl doesn’t have the greatest recall but this place is pretty safe. Peaceful too! Will come back!

Beautiful, open property surrounded by woods. My dogs were able to run free and had a great time off leash.

Awesome!!! Water, space, privacy, quiet. Easy off the highway but feels secluded. The space is clean and the host were very responsive. I hope to make this a regular activity for my dogs.

The area is nice and equipped with waste bags, treats, a water bowl, and chairs. I brought tennis balls for my dogs and they mainly played fetch. It's not a huge area, so if you're looking to really launch the ball or want lots of space to run, make a note of the yard size. It was easy to find and clean.
