Had a great time! Lots of space to run and play and it was beautiful!
Alas, I cannot share any photos from this visit - they're all a blur because the woods and trails at the back of the property were enough to keep my dog running at full speed for the full hour. A delightful afternoon at The Farm to be followed by a very quiet evening (she is already fast asleep) - success!
A great spot for canine enrichment. My dogs are ready to leave after 45 minutes because they are so tuckered out from all the new scents at the farm. I added pics of the gates and locks. Easy to use and very secure.
Even with the pond being dried up (due to summer draught), our dogs had an absolute blast! Can’t wait to return! 🐶🐾🦴
Great time today!
A perfect spot for my energetic boxer to burn off some energy! The space was well-maintained and safe. We will be visiting again soon!
This is my second time back. Merlin loves the farm. It is so nice to have so much space for off leash. We would come all the time if we lived closer.
great place! completely fenced in great for our dogs to run around they had alot of fun using the agility stuff
East to find, parking was easy too. Very secure fencing, suitable for all dogs except ones that have a tendency to jump fences. Property is beautiful - so spacious and isolated we loved it! Cannot recommend this spot enough, ESPECIALLY the wooded trail area way in the back. We will definitely be back very soon :)
My dogs loved this spot! It was perfect for them, they ran and explored to their hearts’ content. I appreciated the parking instructions, and everything was well-marked. This is a gem!
Bring water for your dogs.
Holy moly. This place is absolutely gorgeous and our dogs (and us) are so grateful to have experienced it. Thank you!
Beautiful large private space!
My dog had so much fun!!!! Will definitely be back, would love to be able to come once a week
Always a great spot!
Wow! Just wow! 18 acres of pure dog bliss. My dogs crashed at home for 90 minutes after this extreme canine enrichment site. I walked on the mowed paths while the dogs sniffed, chased, pounced, ran, and smiled the entire time. I will return and I highly recommend this sniffspot.
This place is great. Tons of land to run and secure fencing.
Love The Farm! My dogs love running thru the fields. This time we headed back to the woods where my Lab got the zombies and had a blast! So fun to see them so free. We will be back😊
Best sniff ever!
Beautiful spot! Our dog loved it. The trails are nicely mowed. Lots of space. Nice to have a shady spot with benches. Fun mix of fields and woods. The pond was dried up when we went. Bring your own bowl and water and check for ticks as the host advises.
This is truly one of the most fabulous days we have ever had!! The property is beautiful…truly idyllic with several option for your pets to go into larger and then even larger options.
Lot of ticks! But,
Beautiful and well kept spot fenced all the way around. Love that there’s wooded area too. Just be sure your dog is on preventative and thoroughly check yourself and your dog when you get home! I had two on me, one latched. 9 on my Italian greyhound and 5 on my borzoi.
Nothing the owner can do or do I expect them too! That’s part of the charm of getting to run free through woods and tall grass, just make sure you keep it in mind for your trip :)
Our pup enjoyed the free run. She went non stop for the full hour chasing birds & butterflies. We only stayed in front fenced in area. Need to bring your own water & bowls.
Such a great place!
Amazing property - my dog had a blast. Remember to check for ticks when you're done zooming through the grasses :)
Very cute and secure spot. My dog barely stopped. Will come back.
The farm is wonderful. We bring our dog there year round and it is always a treat. Very well maintained with fencing all around it. Will certainly be back!
Another visit to this Sniffspot and another great day was had by all. This was the first time we went to the back field and it did not disappoint. Plenty of tall grass, mowed paths, and a bench in the shade for humans.
We brought our pack out to The Farm twice this spring. They absolutely love it and get so much enrichment as well as exercise. The agility equipment and pond are awesome features!
Very nice spot! Loved the trails! Will return!
Great new paths were mowed. My dogs loved it!
This place is great. My dog loved running with the birds and rolling in the grass. Felt very safe and secure for my pup to run free. Will be back as often as I can.
Awesome place for a dog. Beautiful property and a dog’s heaven. Clean, beautifully maintained, just wish it wasn’t so far away. Felt perfectly safe with my pit bull.
My dog had such a wonderful time running along the paths and through the grass and watching the chickens and cooling off in the pond. I didn't think she liked getting wet, but apparently I was mistaken (and glad I keep a towel in the car). Delightful afternoon.
My dog loved this spot. Super big, lots of amenities. The host reached out with a friendly a reminder that it's tick season and to ensure my dog was on preventatives. My dog definitely ran around in the long grass and we found and removed several ticks at the end. Just be mindful of this and check your dog!
Great place! Well noted trails through longer grass in the field areas as well as a trail in the woods. They also have a small pavilion for shade. Our dogs loved it.
This is a wonder space !
Dogs loved splashing in the small pond and running free in the wooded area. Host warned us about ticks prior (there bad everywhere this time of year) but we were okay with dogs best flea and tick spray on the pups.
Always a great time here, the recent rain filled the pond and the dogs loved swimming. Beware of ticks, I forgot bug spray and was covered in them at the field and found more when I came home. Dogs seem okay, we use flea and tick treatment so hopefully they're okay and not that we just can't see them (despite checking) due to thick fur.
My young, energetic dog takes at least 5 miles of city walk to get half as tired and happy as he does when he gets to run here. This last time he got to splash through some squishy mud, zoom through the tall grass, roll on his back under a shady tree, chase red-winged blackbrds, hunt for rodents, and yell at a chicken. 10/10 the place to bring your buddies who really need a lot of space to run and enrichment! The ticks are real, though, so be prepared 🔥
What a lovely place for your pup to run and explore! The property is nicely maintained and the paths are mowed. It rained during our stay but there is a shelter and benches for you sit while your dog is exploring the area. We definitely will be back when hopefully there will be fewer ticks (we picked off over a dozen off of our dog even after dousing him with Wondercide). Thank you, Francisco!
Absolutely perfect. Huge space with excellent fencing and gates. Out dog love it. Plenty of space to run. Many acres.
My dogs absolutely loved this! Ticks weren’t bad at all!
Both our dogs love going here.
This place is super fun! My dogs loved it! Definitely feels safe and fully fenced. Just BEWARE of the ticks when it’s warm. Had to remove about 20 from my dogs and myself. This is obviously expected as we went during tick season though.
this spot was great for my reactive dog and he wasn’t as bothered by the birds as i thought he would be. i will say, if you decide to visit this sniffspot after it has rained, bring boots.
Great play space for dogs. This was the first time in a year & a half that I could let my dog off leash , free to roam and explore.
We saw people in the distance and there were some poultry safely behind a fence..but visible.
We were here in early May, I would suggest boots as there were wet, muddy, swampy parts. My dog loved it but I was thankful for boots. Lots of dry paths & I suspect it's only an issue when it's rainy & early spring.
I would absolutely recommend & if they were closer I would go often
This was amazing!! My reactive rescue pups loved running all over this fenced in property. There’s an area with agility, a huge pasture, and a forest. Wow. Definitely heed the tick warnings— the dogs had quite a few afterwards. Thanks for providing such an awesome space for us to have an amazing time.
Great space for any, but especially reactive, dogs to stretch their legs and decompress with all the sniffs. Second gate to access the bigger portion and wooded area of the property not marked, so we missed out on exploring that area during our first visit. Great way to safely introduce dogs from different households!
Thank you for the access to this amazing property for my dogs. They enjoyed the time immensely, the term of Sniffspot fit this adventure perfectly. The double gate is perfect for controlled access. The occupied sign is appreciated!!
They returned to the truck exhausted which was more than I could hope for.
We had a great visit! Our dog is VERY reactive to people, cars, squirrels, even the occasional leaf blowing in the wind. He had a great time and didn’t bark at all which is so rare for him. Highly recommend
It was soggy and muddy because of the rain but Auri had the best time splashing and making me realize I forgot to bring a towel.
She loved the back field and running up and down the trail through the woods and also zooming through the field.
Would definitely recommend!
Great opportunity to get my two dogs out, one that is reactive and the other that benefits from the ability to be off leash. Great for training and confidence building. The exposure to new things like the chickens and turkeys were an added bonus.
Had a great experience here with our reactive rescue! We only used the front portion of the space as she is not great with recalls when there are distractions. We will definitely return.
Great place, lovely setting… 100% safe and secure… This place is the Fort Knox of SniffSpots… The dogs loved it.
It was perfect - loved the double security fence to make sure my dog was safe entering the area and leaving without risk of getting out off leash - the mowed pathways made for a great running game. Easy parking - Good signage
This place is absolutely amazing! Our dog is not good with strangers or other strange dogs but he loves to explore. This gave him plenty of space to safely explore and us the chance to relax and just let him be free for a few hours without the fear of encountering others.
Great space for dogs to explore!
Very clean, very fun for our dog. Fencing is great and she loved seeing the chickens through the fence. It was a little too wet to explore everything (it had been raining and snowing), but we will be back!
We had a great visit today! We were greeted from a healthy distance by our hosts upon arrival. They were happy to answer questions and gave us a brief overview of the property. The acreage is fully fenced. I like the "catch" area which allowed us to remove leashes in a safe place before entering the property. Lots of area to explore and run. Our dog and granddog had a blast. The fresh air was good for all of us. Tired pups today!
We have been coming here for years.. This is a great place to bring your dogs for open runs.
Always the best spot for my two dogs to run off some steam. I love the security of the catch pen/gates.
Awesome place for the dogs to get tired out!
what a lovely place!
Lovely place to bring the dogs! They got to run and explore off leash for a full hour - happy dogs!!
This place is always amazing and always so much fun!
It was my girlies' 5th birthday today so we were tickled to book a slot for a great time.
We were very impressed with the farm! Lots of scents and noises for the dogs to enrich the dogs + the property was well maintained. Just FYI, it was a little muddy, so wear your boots and bring a towel for your dogs!
We love this place!
Just lovely we enjoyed it very much!! We will be back very soon- thank you
Great spot!! We came by when it was still dark out but we’ll have to come by when it’s light out! We heard a rooster and saw it and a few other birds in a pen. Other than that, we didn’t see any other animals or people.
This spot was absolutely awesome. The dogs loved all the space! Even though it’s November the dogs couldn’t stop themselves when they saw the pond. Everything was clean and we are already talking about when we can come back!
Absolutely amazing time! It was a bit of a drive for us but beyond worth it. If you live in the metro Detroit area and are debating the drive…DO IT! We brought a couple dogs and it was SO much fun. I also appreciate the price point - $30 for an hour, not by dog - totally reasonable and fair. We briefly saw the owner of the land from afar and he was super friendly with us and you could tell he was happy to have us on his land. The woods area has a lot of mini ponds, so if you have a swimmer, beware you will bring home a wet dog! The dogs had an absolute blast running around, jumping in puddles and getting muddy. 10/10 experience, can’t wait to come back. Thanks for having us!
This is the 3rd time we've visited, the first time was with our personal dogs the second and third we brought dogs from the a shelter dog. It's a great time away from the shelter for them. They can run and enjoy themselves without have other dogs around. It's always clean and nicely groomed paths. I look forward to many more visits
So great! My little guy loved the agility equipment, sniffing through the grass, and the little muddy pond. He wanted to go swimming so badly!
Wide open spaces for the dogs to run! They loved every minute!
My reactive dog Petey and I drove two hours to come hang out on The Farm, and it was definitely worth the trip! Petey’s world is pretty small due to his particular behavior struggles, but he’s always up for a good adventure. It was wonderful to have him safely off leash as he explored his surroundings and patiently put up with me playing my usual role as his personal photographer (and snack distributor).
This is the absolute best place to let your dog be free and enjoy themselves. The property is secure and clean. Well worth the drive from the suburbs.
This place was perfect for my two dogs! We are always looking for safe places to let our dogs off leash legally. No worries here. Easy to find, and worth the 1.5 hour drive for us. Super cool spot with a field and woods to explore. Will definitely be coming back.
They are a drive away from my place yet totally worth to let your pet lose. Would definitely go back for many more visits.
Another wonderful time at The Farm! Checked out the back part too- and it is huge and fully fenced! Everyone had a blast, and I can't wait for next time!! 🥰
Great spot. We really enjoyed it. My dog loved meandering around the open field & checking out the obstacle course & birds. Would visit again.
Both my dogs loved exploring all the different micro environments in the field (the tall grass, the tiny pond in the middle, looking at the chickens across the fence. They didn't stop exploring for a minute and the mowed paths helped me keep an eye on them as they moved around. The fence and 2-stage gate also helped me feel secure that my dogs could roam free without my losing them.
Only thing I'd change - add clear signage at the road to let us know where the turn is.
Fantastic! Beautiful farmland and wooded area with well maintained trails. Fully fenced. Our dog loved it!
My dogs had a great time! The farm is a safe, clean place for my dogs to roam and explore all that they want. It’s a nice mix of field area and wooded trail. My guy loves tromping through the tall grass. I’ll definitely bring them out for a field trip again
Overall a good experience for pups and pup parents.
Double gated entry, helpful with escape artists!
Multiple gates to access different areas of the property.
Agility equipment provided.
Waste bins available.
Property seems well maintained (paths mown in grass, trail through woods was easy, gates are in good repair.)
The listing says $30 per hour and specifies payment is not by dog, but I was charged $45 for one hour with two dogs.
Not much signage, and could not view address from road. Not extremely easy to be sure you are in the right spot, what is accessible and what is not, and where gates lead. We could have easily accidentally wound up in the chicken pen.
My two pups (almost 3 y/o male foxhound mix, 1.5 y/o male GSD mix) were exhausted on the way home, and they clearly had an awesome time. My visit in September was cool weather and no mud. Will likely return if we are lucky enough to find an opening--availability was extremely limited when I looked.
I love the Farm! My dog is going to be boarding here while I'm out of town soon, so we came out to establish some positive associations ahead of time. He had such a great time exploring and sniffing around, he wasn't ready to leave after our hour. I really like that the property is split into a couple of sections with gates, so if you're not comfortable with your dog having access to the full property, you can stay within a smaller area. My dog's recall while distracted is still a work in progress, so I appreciated being able to keep him within sight. Most of the property is grassy with mowed paths, but there is also a wooded area with a trail through at the very back. We had fun trying out the agility equipment, and my dog was very interested in watching the chickens! There's just so much for a dog to explore here, it's pretty much perfect.
I LOVE the farm. I have a nonprofit dog rescue, and we take our shelter dogs here to get away from the stress. But it seems the hours are now limited to 5pm and later every day. We enjoyed mornings and afternoons and would be grateful for times to open up again.
Wow! This was amazing! My dog had a fantastic time and it was an absolutely beautiful. The spot is so clean and well maintained. We will definitely be back.
We stayed in the initial fenced off area and just that was amazing. Our puppy jumped right into the pond and started swimming like a pro—her first time ever!! We were able to introduce her to agility equipment and she loved everything. There were also a couple chickens to look at through the fence. The only depart from dog paradise was the near constant barking in the background. It was a good socialization opportunity for our pup, but it surprised us all at first. We will definitely be back!
An amazing and absolutely beautiful location. I can't say enough good about it.
Amazing spot, huge area, beautiful, clean, well kept
The set up at the farm is awesome. There are two separate sections for the dogs to explore and run around. Both are completely fenced and gated! They’ve also added a sign at the front gate to show whether it’s in use.
Visitor note: We did find ticks on our dogs, so make sure to check your fur friends and yourselves thoroughly.
This was the best place to take our reactive, energetic dog! She had the best time, and so did we!
This property is absolutely incredible! I have a rescue lab/pit mix and he is still figuring out “how to be a real dog” sometimes. This was the first time he’s had this much space to explore and it was the happiest I’ve ever seen him. From the open grass, agility equipment, fresh puddles (thanks to a summer storm the morning before we got there) and shady wooded area in the back of the property, he had so much to explore and he’s still exhausted two days later. From an owner’s perspective, the fence is reliable around the whole property and I trusted that he could run and explore without me nervously following him the whole time. There arw chickens in an enclosure that shares a fence with one small part of the property and peacocks near the parking spaces so just be aware if those types of things make your dog nervous.
Also, this is just part of Michigan summer and nothing to be done about it, but my friend and I were covered in ticks when we got home. We didnt prepare as well as we should have but just wanted to give people a heads up so they can plan clothes/bug spray.
Beautiful! Dogs loved it. Next time we will try to book 2 hours for the hounds.
Super spacious, beautiful land to play with your dog! It was so big that we weren’t able to walk/run to every part of the land before our hour was up! It’s super well maintained too. My Dog really enjoyed seeing the chickens that live on the other side of the fence. We will definitely come back here often!
I have never felt like i could let my guard down so much until today. We are usually hyper aware of our 2 reactive dogs everywhere we go but being at the farm felt so safe and the best part was seeing how happy both kids were off leash. The only downside were the ticks but we plucked them off and still felt it was more than worth it. We have already booked more visits!
What a great place. Merlin really enjoyed his time here. So much to explore and enjoy.
Another fabulous time!
Springtime in our happy place!
We had a wonderful time today in Milan. Safe beautiful environment. Can’t wait to go back!
This was FANTASTIC for our two large reactive dogs. The whole thing is securely fenced (both the front area with the agility equipment and the back area with a trail through some woods)--the only other place I've seen that's huge, multi-terrain AND fenced like this is Paw Run dog park. Communication w/ Francisco beforehand assured us there would be no other dogs, and thoughtful touches like a sign we put on the gate ("Field in use--do not enter") added an extra layer of security. Our dogs loved ogling at the chickens through the fence (sorry, chickens) but mostly just RAN and RAN! So glad we had the opportunity to do this with them. Thank you!
Super clear instructions for when you arrive! Very secure gate with a sign you can hang on it to make sure no one opens it. We had such a blast exploring the property. the agility course was a great bonus! There is even a cute little pond. I will definitely be back asap. My dog and I are very happy campers!
Great outing again today, good day to wear my rubber boots! The woods are turning green and the field is full of great smells.
Excellent place to bring your dogs, lots of space to run, some wooded areas, a small pond, and secure fencing. There are benches and a small sheltered area for rainy days.
We had to do a few passes to realize where the field was - perfect place for a romp. Lots of good smells, safe fence, maintained pathways in the field. The dog loved it!
Always a great time here! Thanks!
Such a great spot for dogs. From the agility course, to the wide open field, to the wooded areas—and all fully fenced. We're grateful it's only a 30 minute drive for us to get there. Well worth it!
Such a great spot for our pup to run. Well worth the money and we'll definitely be back!
We had another wonderful time, an hour passed so quickly! My Aussies enjoy exploring and running around so much and I can relax knowing that if something grabs their attention they can't run away. The area is Aussome
Loved it. Such a treat for my reactive dog to run around freely without worrying about triggers. He was so happy and exhausted at the end of our hour :) wish it were closer to my home, but honestly it’s worth the drive and price as a special treat. Great property, clearly marked trails, tons of space, secure fencing. What more could you ask for?
We love visiting the farm! My dogs enjoy running and sniffing through the grasses and exploring the woods. Thank you for providing this great spot!
Great open space to run my three crazy aussholes. They were so happy. Perfect day for it as well. Easy to find with Google, parking is close to the gate, and a peacock met us on arrival. Looking forward to returning.
Another fabulous visit! Dogs had a blast exploring the property at full speed.
A friend and I brought two dogs who had an absolute blast enjoying all the wide open space to run, woods, tall grass, and agility course. It’s so quiet and peaceful which makes it great for timid or reactive dogs! We will definitely be returning!
We had such a great time watching our gsp run and jump in the tall grass. This place is amazing. Love the trails and good mix of tall field grass and woods. We wanted our dog to get some recall training and field exposure so this was perfect! I just wish I had looked ahead at the weather before we booked because it was freezing rain at the time. Can’t wait to go back!
Super fun time! Safe and secure with lots of neat cut in trails and talk grasses for the dogs to explore
Our dog, Zoe, loved all the smells and freedom to run free at this wonderful country property! Having separate gated areas was a plus, too. She enjoyed every minute and left happy and tired. My only suggestion is to add better address signage at the road. We had to drive by 3-4 times before we found it. Otherwise, awesome!!
The mowed trails were great for humans to navigate while the dogs plowed through the tall grasses and woods. I was so happy to see my reactive dog stretch his legs. He had a blast. It made big of us happy.
Fabulous time! Wonderful space and the set up is great! Dogs and I had a blast.
Disneyland for dogs, this place is pure gold and worth the drive from Detroit. Whether you want to train outdoors , long distance recall or give your dog a chance to decompress and explore, they deserve a trip to this property. Part wooded , part field , all fun. Enjoy!
Please, do not let everyone know how awesome this is Sniffspot is. Gigantic, natural, completely private and perfect for decompression walks. I'm absolutely thrilled. Let's keep this our secret, eh?
Spacious and well fenced! Dogs had a blast, and so did I. Had fun doing the agility course, too! I already booked another visit!
So much fun to let our dog Jax explore and get some good exercise. Lots of sniffs and space! Highly recommend!
This is an absolute heaven for dogs who love to run, sniff and generally act like their ancestor wolves. For my dog-aggressive dog it is a perfect solution since we cannot take her to dog parks. Francisco schedules things so that dog owners don’t overlap or even see one another. Last, the property is just beautiful and so just as enjoyable for the people as the doggies.
Louie, who lived on a chain the first five years of his life, had the time of his life!!! We loved the cut paths and louie was able to run free! It’s so wonderful to see a dog live the life he was meant to. 😀 Thank you!! We will be back.
We had the best time! Our dogs absolutely loved running through the forest and fields. We cannot wait to come back!
Amazing! I have never seen my dog so happy. This place is perfect-I will tell everyone I know about it! We will be back for sure!
My dogs had an amazing time! We can’t wait to come back again.
It was great!! High quality space and lots of fun for our pups. We’re definitely coming here again.
This is a great spot! It's nice and big with plenty of space to run. It was quite muddy, but our pups enjoyed that. Just be sure you wear boots and have towels ready / something to protect your car seats. Our pups were able to run around in the fields and chase some ducks, and even go for a swim. We will definitely be back!
