This is a very quiet place on a country road where your dogs can be off leash and free to explore nature. The full four acres are surrounded by a 5 foot fence and there is a small creek running through the property. There is a wide spot in the creek that is easily the most popular spot for our canine visitors! There are larger fields and open areas for your dogs to practice their retrieving, and there are many paths in the woods for hiking. The beginning of each path is marked with quartz stones to show you the way. You will also find several benches scattered throughout the property so that you can take a load off while your dogs run and play. When it rains the property can be quite wet in some areas, so bring boots and a towel to clean off your muddy (but happy!) dog. There is a full competition size agility field within the four acres. The agility equipment is completely fenced in and will be accessible only to those who have had at least one formal beginner's agility class. This is to keep you and your dog safe and to prevent misuse of the equipment. Please message the host when you book the spot and before your first visit to discuss your agility experience if you are wanting to access the equipment. **I would really like for your first visit to be on a weekend or a Tuesday (my day off) so that I can meet with you to show you some details about the property and discuss parking. After the first visit, book whenever you want! If you absolutely cannot make it these days for your first visit, we can work something out. 🙂

It’s the woods! Briars, roots, vines, ticks, wild blackberry bushes, mole holes in some of the open spots, wet areas, poison ivy, creek, swimming hole. Nature! Where the creek enters and exits the property, be aware that there are small areas where a determined dog could get through. We need to keep these small areas open for the visiting beavers who like to travel down the creek from the adjacent pond. Otherwise they chew our fence!

Additional rules

I would like to meet guests before their first visit to show them options for parking and the general lay of the land. Anyone that is interested in using the agility equipment is required to have had at least a beginner's course in agility before being allowed to use the equipment. This is an important safety issue.

Pick up after your dogs. Leave the spot as it was when you arrived.

    Always a great spot…my dogs love exploring here! Always clean and well kept. Fence is very secure.

  • Caroline H., May 29, 2023

    Wonderful spot to bring your pup! Plenty of trails to roam, a field to roll in, and a creek to cool off. We had the absolute best time, and Dwayne and Laura are excellent hosts. Towels, poop bags/waste bin, and toys on site as well.

  • Nancy S., May 16, 2023

    Our dogs had a great time. There is a large area for running as well as nice trails to walk. The dogs loved running in and out of the pond shaking off by us until we were as wet as they were. Seeing them run free in a safe, fenced in area was a fabulous way to start the day. We will definitely be back!

  • Michelle P., May 15, 2023

    We had another fabulous visit at Laura's sniffspot. Our dogs loved running in the fields and playing in the water. We will definitely be back!

  • Abigail M., May 14, 2023

  • Averiell R., Apr 27, 2023

    Awesome place! Super clean!

  • Kate K., Apr 25, 2023

    This place is everything I’ve been searching for. I brought my husky Eli and my mom’s dog and they ran around nonstop for 1.5 hours. Eli loved swimming in the creek that runs through the property. It was a beautiful sunny day and there is plenty of shady spots for the pups to rest, drink fresh water and then take off running again. There is a beautiful large grassy flat area to throw the ball and trails to explore. The pups had an absolute blast and we will definitely be back soon.

We love the quiet country life and enjoy offering our space to dogs who would not normally be able to stretch their legs!
