55This is a wonderful place. The paddocks are clean and huge. My dogs had a blast running around and sniffing and rolling in the grass. The host provided great instructions for the use of her beautiful property.
55Very spacious land to have the dogs play and run around! My dog especially loved swimming in the lake/pond :)
55Beautiful property and just as described. My dogs had a blast running around in the pastures and sniffing everywhere
55Another wonderful visit. I think I get as much relaxation out of visiting here as the dogs do! Highest recommendations.
55Lots of space to run. My dogs always get so excited to visit their fav Sniffspot! Thanks for another great day!
55Such a nice place, many areas for the dogs to run around! Will definitely be back!
55Fantastic well maintained property. Our dogs love it
55We had a great time exploring the fields, and our dogs took a stab at playing with some of the obstacle equipment, and otherwise sniffed to their hearts' content. It was a fun time, and will certainly be back!
55Such a beautiful day- and Laurie made it extra special with Easter treats for dogs and humans
55So fun as always

Description

The way our calendar works right now is that spots for non members open 1 to 3 days in advance. Also check the day of for openings due to cancellations. Due to all the spring maintenance underway here Dog Nirvana has less availability than normal. There are typically a number of times that come available during the week. Members will continue to be able to book 2 weeks in advance. As a result most times further out than a few days will show as unavailable as they are held so members have first priority given the temporarily diminished availability. This time of year we do a lot to make sure we keep the property in prime condition and that requires more time for the work to be done and for the property to rest. It’s important to do this so the grass can grow well after all the winter rains and dog activity. If you would like to become a member please let us know if you would like to be placed on the membership waiting list. Come enjoy yourself in the country! We have over 10 fully fenced acres that include two spring-fed private ponds for dogs that like the water, some slight hills for running and playing, lots of wide open space and a beautiful creek. There will be no dogs, people or animals outside on my property during your visit. Please just bring your own toys and pick up after your dogs. I look forward to welcoming you! * The entire 10+ acre perimeter of the property is steel mesh fencing with poles and/or steel mesh fencing in horse fencing to keep the entire perimeter secure and safe. PLEASE NOTE there are TWO FENCING SYSTEMS here -- the internal pastures that are fenced in 3 rail white fencing and the perimeter fencing which consists of steel mesh to the ground and large log poles and/or 3 rail fencing with steel mesh down to the ground. The pasture fencing is located INSIDE of the separate property perimeter fencing. If a dog runs under the white interior pasture fencing they are still secured within the perimeter system. * The front gate and a service gate are metal with horizontal rails with 6.5 inches between each rail. Smaller dogs could potentially get out through the rails. A picture of the gate is included in listing photos so that guests can assess whether the gate will be an issue for them so they can determine whether this property will be appropriate for their pup(s). * This property is pretty secluded. Two sides of the property are surrounded by conservation land (woods), one by a quiet neighborhood road (with the only house set back and not visible while on my property) and the fourth (above the house and barn) by 60 acres in two parcels. The neighbors ' horses might be seen in the distance along the upper side of my property and you might hear their dogs barking from several acres away periodically. * Several pastures have covered horse sheds in them that can be used by visitors for shelter from rain or sun. * There is a dog dish for water, a container of water, poop bags and several garbage cans for doggie poop bags! * If you bring additional guests with pups PLEASE make sure they are aware of all information/rules shared in the listing and via message by the host. * Carey Creek runs along the entire south side of the lowest pasture. It is fully useable for guests. it is on my property but outside of our secure fences so if you go out the gates at the bottom of the property to get to the creek you should leash up if your dog has poor recall. * We have access across the road from the property to 1800 + acres with 30 miles of trails on Taylor Mountain (King County Park) so make it a day and come enjoy our little slice of heaven!

Cleanliness

100% of guests said this spot was as clean as expected during their visit.

Hazards

This is a well maintained rural property. However there is still uneven ground, periodic downed branches, noises of the country in the distance, etc. The property has 2 private ponds. If swimming in the big lower pond please keep them from swimming into the middle of the pond or across the whole pond to avoid the fountain. It comes on via a timer and is very powerful. The cables that secure it run North/South from the little structure by the pond to the fountain and across the pond to the pastures. All around the sides of the ponds is absolutely fine! Thank you. Be aware that algae can bloom during warm months. There are geese and ducks in the ponds. I don't worry about dogs chasing them as they will fly away but If you are worried about your dog chasing them it probably makes sense to look for another sniffspot. There is absolutely nothing I can do about them (I have tried believe me) so they are here on and off. The geese and ducks are wild and If chased they will fly away or hop in the pond. I have also had a guest tell me recently that they saw an otter! I haven’t seen him yet but she showed me a picture she took of him by the big pond. If you are concerned about the otter it also makes sense to go to another spot. Ponds and other bodies of water come with potential things such as leeches, fish, etc. please be aware of this if you plan to have your dog go in the ponds. As pond vegetation grows in the summer leeches could attach to them. They aren’t harmful The waterfowl poop on the lawn around the ponds. While it is cleaned up every few days it is impossible to eliminate goose poop as the moment it is cleaned up 14 fly right back in. Deer and elk sometimes visit the property overnight and leave droppings to let us know they were here. Wild animals such as coyotes live in the area and could enter the property. This spot has a water feature, make sure to review these guidelines for visiting spots with water before visiting: https://help.sniffspot.com/article/167-how-to-keep-your-dog-safe-around-pools-and-water

Additional rules

* Three car maximum per visit. * if you are early wait OUTSIDE the main entrance gate to the property (the one you drive through when you first get here). Someone else may be out on the property with a reactive dog who might run out the gate when you open it or worse. Driving in early could create a disaster. When you enter the gate you enter the sniffspot so it is important to wait to enter until your reservation time and to also leave on time. * Please pick up after your dog. * Please do not allow dog to dig in the grass lawns or pastures or in the garden beds. * To the extent you can please focus the majority of your visit to the pasture areas as the grass there is more hardy and holds up better to rambunctious dog play. Other grassy areas are open for play as well but to help me try to keep the place nice (and keep it available as a sniffspot) it’s best to hang out in the large open pastures in the white fencing for the rowdy stuff 😊 * Please do your best to keep your dog(s) (and kids) from approaching the house or hanging around the front porch or other doors/windows. * We follow the rules of King County parks here...Please do not consume alcohol, smoke (anything) or vape during your visit. * Please refrain from going in the area on the NW Corner of the property. The barn, arena and the area behind the barn and around the arena are not part of the sniffspot as I want to make sure dogs do not accidentally go in my barn or near my barn equipment or composting facilities. * Please check for messages from the host via the sniffspot messaging system. Please respond to these messages.

I love dogs and all animals and have three boxers here who live at my ranch in Maple Valley (Hobart area). My dogs love it. I understand the need for dogs to have a place to run that is private and secure. Since my own dogs aren't outside on my place all the time I thought it would be nice to open it up so others could enjoy the space and safety. The perimeter fencing was lovingly and carefully put up to keep my own dogs safe and secure. It provides such a peaceful and safe environment. I love sharing my property with other pup parents and it has been a joy to hear from so many guests who have made special memories with their furry family members while visiting my sniffspot.

Yes most of the flowering bushes are still in bloom! a great time for a visit! Don't wait too long... A world-class Pacific Northwest natural rainforest adventure awaits you and your best friends on 65-year-old trails, through 2 acres of trails, forest, tall old growth trees, a creek, and open areas for ball throwing and chasing sticks on 9 terraces. Starting with your choice of 2 entrance paths on the far left and right over a bluff that winds around to The Alien Landing Pad, through other trails forming circles to run around on and play. ('Yes, there are 2 paths you can go by'). At the very bottom, the trails lead to a creek. The property is partially fenced and has natural barriers. It is bounded by a fence at the top, a fence on one L-shaped side, a cliff, and creek on the other. Bring more than one dog, if at all possible, because they LOVE to play 'Hide and Go Seek', and chase each other around in circles on the switchback trails, down the hill to the creek and back up the hill to the lodge. This tranquil forest was clear-cut between 65 to 100 years ago and not replanted. So we replanted our 2-acre forest with 600+ trees. The ground is wood chips, sand, and Pacific Northwest duff with 160ft tall Hemlock, Douglas Fir, Alder, Big Leaf Maple trees, 1 Madrona, ferns, and native bushes with views of a 20-acre privately owned forested wetland. We prepared the yard as a Sniffspot for dogs. Rarely seen are animals in the forest - occasional wild rabbits, moles, squirrels, mountain beavers, raccoons, mice, shrews, voles, and weasels. Many birds are seen and heard here- thrush, grosbeaks, warblers, sparrows, starlings, chickadees, flycatchers, redstarts, vireos, tanager, pewees, orioles, woodpeckers - shorebirds, waterfowl, raptors, such as hawks, and American Bald Eagles. This is a rugged forested area so be careful of footing! watch for signs of moles and Mountain beaver underground trails crossing the paths, especially along Secret Lane, Lover's Lane, and Hidden Lane (signs to be added soon). We spent 4+ years removing invasive bushes, cutting down dead trees, and creating places for you to run, walk, play, pause, sit, and enjoy your dogs in this natural rainforest, one mile from the South Sound. When you park you can close the entry gate at the top. A garbage container for poo bags is available on the driveway as you depart under the Big Leaf Maple tree on the right in the large gray bin marked "Garbage". We feel a lot of delight here. We welcome you to enjoy it now! 2 Starbucks are less than 5 minutes away in either direction (bathrooms are available there). Bigfoot Java is at 4627 SW 320th St. (no bathroom but open 24x7) Join us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=61556216197208 or search "Wonderlane World Famous Sniffspot" :-) Wonderlane is a place to commune with nature, a peaceful place to breathe in nature with some walks over and around 2 acres of forested hills. When it is raining and for water dogs, a guest recommended bringing a towel to dry off pups' paws. There is water to wash dogs down near the creek. Actually there are water hydrants in most areas. If your dog is reactive and you want to, you may keep your pup leashed the 20 ft from your vehicle to the top of either trailhead. When leaving via either trail at the top you can easily pause to leash your dog if you wish. PS. If your dog doesn't want to leave, contact me and I'll ring the Magic Chuck Waggin' Triangle, and your dog will come. No worries!
