Fenced in backyard with bunnies, squirrels, and chipmunks for your dog to sniff out. We rotate out sensory stations and different obstacles and dog toys. Feel free to message us and request something specific. We have sprinklers, kiddie pool, splash pad, mini-trampoline, a host of different balls, long lines, and enrichment feeders. We also have laminated games and tricks to teach your dog! Not all games and activities are out all the time to give dogs room to run! Request anything you want to see in specific. We have a poop scooper and trash as well as water bowl at the ready and chairs for the humans. Gazebo is currently down because a storm broke it, but will be up again soon. If notice is given we could set up an umbrella for shade.

    Unfortunately, I would not book this yard again. The yard seemed neglected and unkept. There was trash, old belongings, old plant pots and other things scattered throughout the yard. The listing does mention a chain linked fence but did not mention that it leads directly up to another yard with other dogs that continuously barked so if you have a reactive dog; this is not ideal at all. The listing also mentioned it has dog toys however there was only one ball that was chewed up. We booked for an hour but left after 20 minutes. I hate to leave a poor review but this was my experience :/

    Host replied: Sorry you had a poor time in the yard. We did have a puppy this week chew up several toys and our very expensive jolly ball. So that was just bad timing. I suggest you come at a different time as the neighbor dogs are only out about 20 mins at a time. I did note on the information that you can sometimes hear/see neighborhood dogs from our yard in that one gate. We will be putting up a privacy blocker in the summer, but right now it’s spring and the bunnies nest in our yard so we keep it open for them to access the alley. After the bunny nesting season/ winter storms we will also have the seating area up and uncovered. Yard leaves cleaned up. And you could add pool and or splash pad to your booking. Generally weekend mornings and 2-4pm everyday is the busiest for the neighborhood. So I don’t recommend that for reactive dogs. Obviously, if we aren’t the right yard for you that’s ok too.

    Perfect sized yard for your pup to explore & blow off steam. We will be returning!

    Lucy's Private Backyard has lots of fun places to sniff. It is fully secure and set up perfectly for sniffing.

    First time using sniffspot and it was wonderful! Loved this enclosed space, it was perfect for us. Owner was very quick to send me a welcoming message which helped me feel more comfortable about walking onto a strangers property. We would love to come back soon.
