Urban Oasis - Astroturf play and agility space (no muddy paws ever)

Over 4200 square feet of Astroturf play area conveniently located adjacent to the BWI airport (less than a 5 min Uber ride away). The yard is surrounded by wooden privacy fencing so your pups can focus on playing! Astroturf provides a soft, plush, clean surface so even wet dogs don’t get dirty during their stay (perfect if you’re waiting on a flight or traveling with your pup). Covered sitting area to keep guests shaded. Space is equipped with agility equipment including an a-frame, adjustable jump, tunnel, agility stakes, and back tie. The space also has various toys on the ground, kiddie pools/dog activated water fountain/hose in the summer to keep dogs cool . If coordinated in advance (and with owner supervision) you can even use the slat mill for an extra physical challenge. If you’re bringing a young puppy out please message us directly so we can put out the ball pit. The space is equipped to be used in the dark and has many solar motion activated lights along the fence, solar lights on the pergola, and a lit walkway leading up to the gate. The best travel companion is a happy/tired pet. As the weather gets nicer you may see some neighbors on your way in and may hear them while in the yard. You may also hear the normal neighborhood noises and the occasional cluck of a chicken. No dogs live in the yards adjacent to the fence so you rarely hear barking; however, we occasionally take in reactive board and trains. In the extremely rare case one of our houseguests barks and disturbs your peace during the visit let us know and we will make it right. On most hot days the turf gets warm in direct sunlight. Typically we will spray it down between guests if we are home. However, please check the turf intermittently and spray down as desired. The turf has an infill that causes significant evaporative cooling once its sprayed down. The small red cooler typically has water for the humans! Please help yourselves! Please no smoking 🚭 anywhere on the property. Cigarettes could damage our turf (extremely expensive to fix) and poison dogs. Sometimes organic debris blows off trees and into the yard. We regularly clean up leaves etc when it’s nice, but we can’t when it’s raining. If wet leaves/maple seeds aren’t your thing- no problem! We’d love to host you when the weather dries up🙂

Lauren's Private Dog Park In Reisterstown

Hi everyone! I have a small 13 acre private farm in rural Reisterstown, Maryland. We are very secluded and offer a peaceful place to bring your furry friend for a relaxing time exploring our lush pastures and wooded trails. It’s the perfect location to get away from it all. It’s ideal for fearful dogs that need solitude. Bring your babe and enjoy! Guaranteed to have a relaxing, quiet time. We do have chickens in the back yard that will be locked up in a run during your visit. I will provide a water bowl, some dog toys, poop bags, trash can, and a couple sling chairs. You are welcome to bring a portable hammock or additional chairs, whatever makes you comfortable. Newly added shelter to stay out of the sun or rain! We only ask that you clean up after your pet and self and please put the toys back in the bucket for others to enjoy. Unfortunately, there is no bathroom on-site other than big trees. Access to the woods can be from around the fenced area and into the trail near the bottom pasture gate. Or you can walk through the pasture straight through the gate. Head up the hill. Stay right on the trail and you will do a full circle through the woods below the barn and then back onto the driveway to the house. Stay on the trail and you will stay on our property! You may see our puppy out from time to time but he will be kept confined in the yard around the house. He’s a baby and needs to pee a lot and get his ya yas out. We try to keep it to a minimum when guests are around though. If you see us out, come say hi if you like. We love having you! If you want privacy and peace, we got you!

Very clean and spacious! Beautiful and peaceful location! The owners very thoughtfully left out a water bowl and a pitcher of water, as well as poop bags and wipes. There was also a lined, covered garbage bag to dispose of the poop bags! There were two chairs and a small table in the shade. Our dogs were secure and happy to run free and chase each other or play fetch. They were also happy about all the different smells! We have two happy worn-out pups! We will definitely be back!

Very clean and well-maintained space. Fencing was spot-on and even my terrier would not have been able to dig out! Appreciated the trash can for poops and also the poop bags and water dish. We have a happy and tired dog - look forward to going back!

Zoey and I had a good time at this Sniffspot! As usual, the area was clean and well fenced. She ran around sniffing and investigating the area. Zoey's all tuckered out now and catching a few 💤 on the bed.

I love visiting Teras Stable dog park! Even in the winter, the grounds are beautiful. This time, I hosted a corgi meet-up with the Baltimore Corgi community and it was absolutely perfect!

20 stars! Great spot. The area was very clean and as advertised: 4’ fence, two chairs for the hooomans, and lots of space for your dog to run free. The area has a slight incline which made it fun for our dog to chase after her ball. Would love to visit again!

Thank you for always being so kind, communicative, and accommodating! My dog LOVES visiting this beautiful spot and I can’t adequately express how much it means that there is a safe place where she can run around freely. Thank you again! We will definitely be back.

I'd never tried Sniffspot until today. It was a great experience for both my dog and me. The spot was clean, safe, and isolated which is a real plus for those with a reactive dog! The fencing did not have any gaps or holes. There are 2 chairs and a table so you can relax while your pup runs around. I felt perfectly safe there. I'd highly recommend this Sniffspot and will be returning to this one without hesitation.

This was our first sniff spot experience and it was terrific! Our two pups loved running around the wide open space--so many good spots to sniff! Thank you to the host for providing water and a trash can to dispose of waste. Would highly recommend and even though we live in Baltimore and it was a little far of a trek for us we will definitely be returning!

Had an excellent time at this Sniffspot! Our dogs has so much room to run, and it was a lovely scenic spot. A little muddy, so dogs needed a rinse off when we got home, but worth it. Would definitely return and highly recommend.
