This was our first time here! We had so much fun (even with the light rain)! Plenty of room to play frisbee and get some running in, and ample room for relaxation. We’ll definitely be back!

Great as always. I will bring a new squeaker toy at our next visit - Ted somehow broke the new squeaker toy 5 minutes after getting it. 🫣

Our puppy absolutely loved playing here! It's a large area with plenty of shade. Stocked with all the supplies you could need, along with toys. We didn't come across any sights of others dogs or humans. I would highly recommend!

Every time we pull up, my pup knows he gets to run and sniff around! Plenty of open space and toys. The host is always pleasant and openly communicates any necessary information. Great spot!

This is a great spot! We really liked that the yard was big and open with plenty of space for playing ball, frisbee, and running around. The host also left out thoughtful accommodations like water and a fun selection of toys. The only dogs we could hear were waking past on a sidewalk outside the fence, which our dogs barely noticed.

We had such a wonderful time with our three pups. Easy access to the yard, clear instructions. Beautiful large yard with secure fence. Toys, water, poop bags, and comfy spots to sit. We will visit again!

My dog LOVED this space and the squeaky balls available were a huge hit. Charles was an excellent host and responded nearly immediately when I had a couple questions during our visit. We will definitely be back next time we’re running errands in Madison!

This was our first Sniffspot experience - it was awesome. Easy to park, super well fenced, really spacious and perfect for our mutt who lives for fetch. Highly recommend. We will be back!

Great spot to stop at. My doghter had a wonderful time running around the large yard in the snow. Fresh water and poop bags were provided and well needed! I definitely recommend this beautiful yard for any furry friends to enjoy!

Beautiful backyard and lovely area in general. Plenty of room for our doggo to play fetch, work on some training in a new environment, and even work on some of his scent training. Definitely recommend!

Great fence and plenty of space to play ball! We mainly visited for my 78-80 lbs, dog-reactive, ball-crazy shepherd mix and it was a great spot for getting him exercised safely. Thank you!

Very clean and beautiful yard with a very secure fence for my larger dog. The host provided water, toys, and a trash can for waste! My pup loved running around, smelling all the spots, and especially hanging out under the climbing bars. Great spot for my first time!

We had a great time! It was a beautiful fall day, and our dog Bellie had a lovely runabout. A very nice safe space, and convenient location. Highly recommend.

Having a reactive dog it is always hard to find a place to take my dog. Doggie Land was AMAZING! My dog loved it and we have already booked our next time.

Such a fun place! Our dogs loved the agility equipment, splash pad, and tennis balls. Our son had as much fun running around as the dogs!

Quiet, clean, fun, indoor play park. Rex had a fabulous time on the agility course. We appreciated the benches and fresh water. We’ll be back!

My dog had so much fun here! The indoor facility is stocked with every agility equipment you can think of (my dog especially enjoying jumping through the hoops). And the tire filled with balls was super fun, he had a blast chasing after them. The facility also has a dog wash station (that we are planning in the future) and some treats for sale. My dog is human and dog reactive and Lisa and her husband were so kind and understanding about him needing his space. We will be visiting again very soon to this amazing sniff spot!

Absolutely perfect, especially when you have a high-energy, reactive dog, on a rainy day!! He and his best friend had so much fun, running around, getting balls out of the tire pit, and getting brave with exploring the agility equipment (treats helped!). It was clean, and so relaxing.. no need to worry about other dogs coming in. More fun with two dogs, I think, but I’ll be back with my own dog (took my granddog!! ❤️.. gramas are supposed to spoil them, right?!)

This place was awesome! We already made another appointment to go back and get individual training time with Lisa. She was so welcoming and knowledgeable. 10/10 recommend!

FAQ about our Madison dog parks

Are dog parks good for dogs?
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.
