    Always a great time. Hala helped us with a last minute change in plans and it saved the day!

    Bennie had such a great time splashing around in the pool and exploring the very spacious backyard. The space is clean and comfortable and Hala was kind enough to leave out toys and towels for us. We had so much fun and can’t wait to be back!

    This is probably our 5th time to Hala’s? It’s easily the BEST sniffspot around! She’s a great communicator and this place is literally puppy paradise. Gala is extremely thoughtful and leaves out toys, poop bags and lots of water. I leave 5 stars every time but do have to mention this time there were big dogs heard barking in the house and they were actually let out towards the end of our time and came out barking and charging at us. Gave us all a big scare. It’s never happened before and hopefully won’t happen again. We will still come back unless it becomes a regular thing.

    Host replied: I am truly sorry that happened. It was an accident. Thank you for the nice review. :)

    Great place with lots of amenities! We brought our dog here to play and have a small get-together with friends. We added on BBQ and the pool as extras and had a fantastic time. Host was very responsive to our questions. There were dog toys, a water bowl, poop bags, and towels provided.

    Great spot for my dogs! They enjoyed running around on the grass, swimming and playing with toys! The only thing to note is there is a grape vine against the house (toxic to dogs) but just watch your dogs closely (as you should any time/anywhere) to make sure they don’t eat any!

    Host replied: Glad you had fun!!

    This is our first Sniffspot experience, and it is wonderful! The yard is spacious, large lawn perfect for dogs which love to run, swimming pool for dogs who love to swim, and mud hole which is perfect for dogs who love to jump in and out 😅 there’s toys and towels available. Great place

    Host replied: Thanks for the great review!
