Serene property with shady spots to relax between sessions of catch. We even brought our lunch. Thank you for sharing your property with us.
Great spot!!! Lots of room for our big dog to play! The shade from one of the trees was perfect for us to just sit and enjoy our dog having a great time! The instructions to get there written by Celene were spot on! Thank you! We will be back!
Great place to bring the dog!! Lots of space and toys around to keep your dog entertained.
We really loved this spot. It was so fun to let our dog sprint at full speed, and we also got to practice lots of recall. Will definitely be back!
Huge space, bucolic, and very tidy. Bonnie had a great time. We’ll absolutely be back.
Truly a gem of a place. Our 2nd visit. Not a problem to find with the owners driving directions. Watch the narrow drive in. The spot has all mother earth gifts to wild ourselves back to ourselves again. Huge appreciation to those who share their land.
This was a great fenced in area to play fetch and let our dog run long distance. They have a fenced in parking area to let the dog out of the car leading to a gate for the fenced in field. We had a great time and will definitely be going back again.
10/10 Sniffspot. We will definitely be back :)
Wonderful place to take my pibbles, where they can run free and be themselves.
They made the most out of their hour and exercised non stop!
We didn’t see the guard dogs lol.
There are two gates. One to park your vehicle and a second to keep your dogs safe.
Plenty of fun gopher holes to fuel my smaller dog’s curiosity too.
Poo bags and fresh water provided.
I’d give this spot a 10/10. We will definitely be back!
Huge space to let our dog run; will come back! also found a dog friendly burger place nearby called " Pilot Light".
Great spot and my dog loved it! Hard to find, but the instructions and written are perfect. Now that I know how to get there, we will be back!
We loved visiting this spot!! It was a great place for my city aussie and her buddy to run around off leash safely!
A Great place with lots of room for our pup to play in! Thank you!
Love this spot. Lots of room for our pup to run, sniff, and explore. Easy to find with the written directions. Worth it.
Great spot for fresh air and fetch!
Great spot for my city pup to run around!
The spot is a perfect safe and secure spot to play fetch with my reactive dog!
Great huge area with all the amenities provided!! There wasn’t as much grass as pictured and the lot has spurs which got caught in my furry bb’s paws.
It was very safe and had a lot of room to run and play with a good fence. Definitely follow the directions that are provided to avoid getting lost. Next door had a few off leash chihuahuas that run up the street. They didn’t come up to us as we were getting in or out of the car, but be careful when driving up to keep them safe. It was a great way to spend out puppy’s first birthday she enjoyed every minute of it, we plan on coming back again.
My puppy loved running around with her brother. Plenty of space to keep them both busy.
Super big space with private entry into parking and they had 3 lil cute guard dogs 🥺 they were no issue since the entrance to the parking can be shut behind you and closed off then through the parking space you can enter the area
Super easy directions, clean lot and my pup had so much fun running around! Will definitely be back weekly.
Easy to get to if you follow written directions! Huge lot, fence is sturdy enough to keep my dogs in.
Love this spot! Very secluded and off the beaten path, but follow Celene’s instructions and you’ll be right where you need to be! There are chihuahuas next door that bark and may run up to you, just walking in their direction makes them turn the other way. There is water, toys, and plenty of space. 10/10 would recommend and come back!
My pups had a great time. I struggled a bit to find the lot, but I think that was my fault. I’d recommend a sign for the future to make it easier to identify for those of us who struggle with directions.
It’s a nice large lot and the girls were all tired out even before the end of the hour. Chasing balls and all the smells were very satisfying for them.
This place was perfect for our dog. She loved having all that space to run around free. The place can be tricky to find but the directions provided are very detailed and helpful. Thank you!
This was a great, spacious, well kept space! We brought our two dogs (one reactive) and our friends brought their dog to do some training. It was such a relief having such a big space to do training where we didn’t have to worry about unknown off leash dogs in the area. Also appreciated the water, water bowls, and various balls/toys laying around! The dogs all had fun while training! Two of the neighboring chihuahuas came out into the shared driveway as we were leaving and approached and barked at us but we were able to shoo them away.
A nice, clean, expansive area. Very well fenced! My two German shorthairs enjoyed their 90 minutes of uninterrupted fetch, running, sniffing, and mole searching. And wondering what the heck was making all that noise squawking (chickens 😂😂)
The chihuahuas were there as mentioned, but once in the gate they retreated.
A man with a dog approached and seemed to be watching us. But I think he was just waiting for us to leave so he could bring his dog because he left eventually. Made me a little nervous being a younger woman alone with just her dogs, but all went fine.
Directions were very accurate and thorough. I didn't have service like they mentioned, so I went prepared with screenshots of pictures 11/12 and the directions.
Such a beautiful and perfect place for our city dog to run and run and run! With extras like poop bags and water and a little swing. Everything is very secure, no chance of your dog escaping. The property is off the beaten track, the driving instructions were very helpful. Thank you for sharing this property with the city dogs.
Exactly as described, wonderfully self contained space with lots of room to roam. Large water set up kept the pup hydrated and the toys kept her occupied. Couldn’t recommend more!
I love this spot! Today there was added drama when the loose chihuahuas next door chased a cat who was chasing a rabbit. These chihuahuas are excellent guard dogs so I threw treats at them getting in and out of the gate so they would stop thinking about me and my dogs and go snuffle around for treats. 3 beautiful puppies to protect and feed!
Location was beautiful and quiet, will definitely be coming back.
This is a fully fenced large field that's perfect if your dog loves to chase balls! Our pups had a blast running from one end to the other. The directions were very clear and the hour went quickly!
Well removed from the city and yet not far at all. Once we identified the correct lot (there are several) everything was great. Our prissy reactive terrier was a bit picky about the dry grass so we mostly hung out in the shaded areas. He’s also a bit of an escape artist, but the fencing was secure and there were no red flags at all to us. Only note is the neighbor’s two chihuahuas others have mentioned. I had to carry my dog into the yard because they were aggressively guarding the shared driveway/entrance to the lot. At one point I had to clap & yell them away because they kept charging us, but they eventually got the message. lol. Just a note for others with dog-reactive dogs. As soon as we were in the lot it was fine—they were quiet and didn’t come anywhere near the fence. It was a lovely place to work on recall and such a treat to be able to let our lil guy off leash. Will return!
Celene was incredibly communicative - with clear directions - and quick responses to our questions. The Sniffspot itself was exactly as described yet still exceeded our expectations. We plan to book regularly.
My pup had such a fun time! The place is clean and tidy, plenty of water and random toys laying around. He loved sniffing everywhere and exploring.
Can only leave 3 stars because my pup has long fur (cocker spaniel) and I had to remove 50+ burrs from him after our trip. Perhaps not an issue for short fur pups! Other than that, the space was huge, clean, had lots of shade and my pup had the best time in this space. Directions were clear and if it wasn’t for all the burrs we’d be back regularly.
A little tricky to find where to park but beautiful setting, the doggies had a great game of fetch
Nice large field
We had a super fun time here! Celene helped us with directions so it was a breeze to find. We will be back!
This space was wonderful for our reactive dog. He doesn’t get to have experiences where he can explore and play without worry very often so it was wonderful to see him sniff and run like any other dog. We will be repeat visitors for sure! Celene was also very responsive to my messages and let us know that no one had booked after us, so I didn’t need to be concerned about hustling him out before others showed up. We did see the chihuahuas mentioned by other reviewers - when we first arrived we pulled into the driveway of their house which I think “alerted” them to our presence and they came out to see what was up - I think if we hadn’t done this, they wouldn’t have seen us! We just moved the car out onto the road and it was no issue. Celenes directions to find the space are also very accurate and concise - no issues there and it was fun to “discover” Montara :)
Very nice place. Lots of open space for your dog to run. The directions they provide make it easy to find.
It’s so peaceful and quiet. They dogs had an amazing time. Lots of room to run around and directions were easy to follow.
Great spot. Very secure and a perfect place to run and sniff. Our pointer loved running and chasing birds. Our pibble loved chasing balls and resting in the shade. Was a bit tricky to know exactly where to go first time, but Celine’s photos and directions really helped. Lots of small gopher holes but they didn’t bother our dogs a bit. A fantastic outing. We will be back!
Awesome spot for the dogs to stretch their legs and zoom! We rented this spot for one of our dogs’ birthdays and they all had an awesome time.
The directions provided were excellent and the host responded very quickly when I messaged to clarify. Great spot to let my dog run around for a while. It took her a while to settle with the rooster sounds, and we were approached by the chihuahuas on the way out, but my reactive dog didn’t seem to care. Love the amenities provided. Toys, water, poop bags and receptacles, even the foxtail masks lining the fence. I even had a blast swinging on the tree swing while my dog ran around and stuck her nose in and dug in every gopher hole, searching for treasure. It was awesome. Will definitely be back.
The best sniffspot I’ve ever been to. Okay it’s my first one but this place is great. Clean, great directions, and amenities.
Exactly as described in the listing. It's a great spot!
This was a very nice space. There were beautiful flowers in the back. Spacious and well kept.
Nice large space somewhat close to SF. Our dog loved being able to run around! Nice that there’s water and poop bags for use, as well as some balls.
Expansive and reliably secured field. Dogs enjoyed sweeping the perimeter, hunting for ground critters, and shifting into their "gallop gears" as they explored the grounds.
Love this spot! Very well fenced and safe. The grass was nice and short, although a bit dry and prickly for my dog (but he has very sensitive feet). We can't wait to come back in the fall and winter. The location is so convenient.
Great space for long frisbee tosses and sprinting pups. None of the dogs were bothered by the crowing roosters or barking chihuahuas (former out of sight, latter were in sight loose so be aware if you have reactive dogs). Will return!
This was our first time using SniffSpot for our reactive dog, and we had a wonderful experience! Our dog is extremely reactive to all other dogs, so it was amazing being able to let him run free without a leash. The fence is fully secured around the entire perimeter; I checked all the corners myself and they're well reinforced. The only small thing for other reactive dog owners to note is that the house owners have two small chihuahua-type dogs that were barking at us off-leash when we arrived, but they didn't approach our dog so it wasn't a problem. The field had plenty of toys and water to use, and the swing in the middle of the field is a nice touch. We will definitely be back!
very spacious and my dog loved sniffing around!
Just as described! We had a great time! There were two chihuahuas barking off leash by by the road/near the parking spot as we pulled up. There weren’t close enough for it to be a problem for my reactive dog.
The place seems hard to find at first but very good directions are given. You are able to park your car in a fenced area that is separate but next to the area for your dogs which is great. I have 10 lbs chihuahuas and the fence gaps were small enough to keep them enclosed. There are some other little dogs roaming from the neighbors, but they will be unable to reach or bother your dogs or car once you park and close the gate. Very spacious, clean, and isolated. My dogs loved it and we felt safe!
such a great spot! very large field with shade, water, and toys if needed. playing fetch with the chuck-it toy was a dream with my labrador! will definitely be back :)
Exactly as described, big flat plot, well fenced, great for running, some shade, extra water, poop bags, and toys. My reactive retriever loved the nonstop off-leash running; my older dog rested in the shade. It was perfect. We'll be back often.
Amazing place to allow my big guy to stretch his legs for a bit. Very clean and secure
I’ve been to this spot multiple times because it’s the best location for us in proximity to San Francisco. This area is perfect for our large dog! She is so happy and pooped after playing in this spacious field. Would highly recommend!
Great place. Lots of room for dogs to sniff and roam. Very secure and fresh water! If your coming for the first time ,might want to have a little bit of extra time. A little tricky to navigate. Host was super responsive. We will be back for sure.
Thank you Celene! Pumba had a blast! Appreciate the detailed directions you have. We will be coming back regularly :)
Such a great, clean and safe space for my rescue pittie to run her little heart out! Second time here and will be back often!
My dog loved it!
Our dogs had a lot of fun at The Dog Spot!! Celene’s instructions to reach the Sniffspot were very helpful. The place itself is quite clean and securely fenced. There was fresh water and bowls for the pups to drink from.
The dogs had fun running around, sniffing and relaxing under the tree. There are some stumps for people to sit and enjoy the view of the woods.
Fantastic spot! There isn’t much cell reception so make sure to save the directions before you head there. We can’t wait to go back!
Amazing spot. Our dogs had so much fun.
This was the perfect spot for our dog to get his zoomies out! Thank you, Celene!
My dog loves the space… it is a great opportunity for him to be off leash & chase his ball in a safe environment!!
Great place for dogs to run around freely.
This spot was a dream for my apartment living dog! The lot is clean, spacious, well-enclosed, and Celene gives great detailed instructions on how to get there. To be expected, there are a few holes (like gopher holes) in the ground so if your dog has skinny little legs like mine, thats something to look out for. We will definitely be back here (:
We had the best time at this sniff spot. We have a reactive dog and find it hard to be able to take him places and this was the best space for him to come and run and play! We brought him and our 2 other pups here for his tenth birthday.
We will be back again!
Great space! Secure for big dogs, tranquil and a short drive for us. Thank you Celene for sharing your little piece of doggie heaven.
We had such a great time at this sniffspot! It was great to be able to pull in the gate and park so there was a lot of safety getting in and out of the off leash area. The space is clean and at least whe we were there free from distractions. Celine was very helpful and if you follow the directions it was easy to find. You will want to screenshot them because there really isn’t any cell service. Highly recommend this place for a great relaxing and fun place to let the dogs sniff and run.
Beautiful place. Follow all her instructions and take screen shots of directions and photos 11 & 12. Also make sure you realize that the directions google maps gives you only gets you to Montara and not the site. Thank you
My doggies loved this place and so did I.
Beautiful, shaded, open-area location, completely fenced, this is a GREAT spot for dogs not affected by sounds from nearby roosters and other dogs. Celene very kindly made sure we could find it by sending pics and specific directions, because google maps was useless. It's worth finding!
This location was great! It was a beautiful open space with plenty of room for 2 dogs to run. Well maintained. There were even some toys for them to play with. We’ll definitely be back!
Celene’s Sniffspot is everything you’d want your space for your pups to be! There was so much space for our three dogs and they truly enjoyed their time there & we did as well. We will definitely be coming back! Thanks Celene for your generosity for renting out your space :)
My dog had a great time at The Sniff Spot. The area was just the right size and was very secure. We brought a couple of balls but she enjoyed finding the balls already in the yard. It was very quiet while we were there with only the sound of a rooster in the background. We look forward to visiting again.
Great spot! Plan on allowing a few extra minutes to find the spot.
Our second time here! A wonderful sniffspot. We’ll definitely be back
clean, safe, fun!
Lovely, lovely lovely spot with plenty of room to run and no foxtails! This is my pups new favorite. Thanks to Celene for being extra patient with my bad sense of directions.
Terrific spot for dogs to run and play! The fence height was good and there were balls to play with. We brought our own water but I believe there were bowls and water available. If you plan to sit and watch your dog in action, be sure to bring your own chair. We had a little trouble finding the location. They could use a Sniff Spot sign in front to mark the spot!! We will definitely be back for more fun!
Thank you!! Your place was lovely and instructions to get there easy to follow. My dog had a great time, I’ll definitely book again.
My two dogs had so much fun sniffing the whole place. My one dog is dog reactive so it was nice to have a place for her to be herself without worrying if there would be another dog around. It's also a nice quiet location (we did hear chickens which was no issue) away from the city. The grass was short and the place was clean. Celene was so helpful in giving detailed directions. I can't wait to bring my dogs back!
My pups had a blast! Very clean, safe, fully enclosed. I can’t wait to bring my babies back soon!
My dogs had a ton of fun here, and it was very clean and peaceful. The fencing kept my escape artist contained
The dog spot is wonderful! Such a large space to let our dog run around. Celene gave easy directions to the spot and responded quickly to any questions we had. Will definitely be returning!
Love this spot! We definitely plan to use it again.
The area is huge and grass is cut nice and short. Everything is fully fenced and we were able to let our girl off leash without worry.
I will mention for people with reactive dogs that there are some people in sight nearby. There is also occasional loud music playing and loud roosters/chickens that make quite a bit of sound if your dog is sound sensitive/reactive.
Our pup is very sensitive but we had plenty of room to work with her and keep her attention off of the distractions. She had a great time!
My dog loved all the open space to run and new things to sniff. It was so peaceful and I went on a day that was a bit warm so I was able to lay down a blanket and watch him explore. There were scented poop bags provided, a bunch of tennis balls to play with, and secure fencing all around. Thanks for a great experience!
A beautiful field. Secure fence. Excellent spot to decompress.
My dog had a blast! A great open space with lots of room to run and play. Very secure fencing and lots of balls to choose from.
