Hound Hill Rustic 1 Acre Fenced Private Dog Park in West Avon

Located at the far end of a culdesac, Hound Hill is a fully fenced one acre wooded doggy paradise. We have cleared brush and are working to remove leaves and sticks for easier walking and playing with your dog. Our fence is mesh critter fence which is wildlife friendly for the deer, bears, bobcats and other animals that travel through our property. If you are looking for a large space for fetch or just to let your dog explore then this is the place! When you arrive please take time to walk the fence line with your dog on leash first to ensure the fence is intact. Due to the nature of critter fencing and the abundance of wild life we have had occasional breaks caused by deer and bear as well as branches that have fallen. If you spot any issue please message the host and they will immediately address the issue. We love this fence because it does not entangle the wild animals and is very easy to repair. This means we have to inspect it often, and we do, but for the safety of all we encourage each doggie chaperone to do their own visual inspection before allowing dogs free rein. We do treat the area with cedar oil for ticks. We do not use any herbicides or pesticides or fertilizer. Please pull all the way into the drive and park in the gravel spot to the left of the garage. Do not block the garage doors. Enter and exit through the gate directly in front of the parking spot. Please do not use the gate on the other side of the lot for any reason. Please do not enter the small fenced area directly off the back of the house, this area is not part of the dog park. Please note that the dog park is on a hill and there are no paved or flat areas within the park. It is recommended that you wear good shoes with traction and are comfortable walking through an unimproved wooded area. There are rocks, sticks, leaves and uneven terrain. If you have physical limitations this park may be very difficult for you to use. Please pick up after your dog. Removal of dog waste is imperative in order for us to continue to offer this spot.

Our dogs loved the brand new ball Natalie left out for us! Very clean. Perfect spot to stretch our legs on a long trip without having to worry about the safety of a highway rest stop.

My fur babies loved this cozy spot. The two little ones were calm. No barking and were at ease. My 2 yr old staffy loved the toys. It took only 30 mins to get him into out of breath zone. The Jolly ball did the trick! I will definitely bring them back again.

Kam and I enjoyed our time, love that we were able to just pop in for a quick play session. The giant ball was super fun and I loved the tall solid fence. It was basic but we did not need much but a safe place to run off some energy.

Awesome, large yard! Lots of sunshine during the morning/early afternoon and seems like it would be mostly shade afternoon/evening! Best of both worlds. Marcia was very accommodating and communicated well.

Really lovely property! My dog loved sniffing in the fields and around the pond, even though he didn't feel like getting in the water this time. He was nearly falling asleep on the way home, which is always a good thing. Would definitely come back here!

FAQ about our Manchester 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.
