Lots of fun for my dog, she sniffs and runs to her hearts content!
Our dogs had a blast running free and learning how to use the agility equipment! We'll be back for sure!
Great spot. Wonderful for a hound to sniff around and play.
Clean and peaceful place . My dog had lots of fun running around with the balls that were left in the area :)
This cool fall weather late afternoon perfect for the dog. Second time there and had a blast.
Thanks Karen for having a beautiful space for my senior beagle to enjoy all the smells! Being a beagle mom, I’m always nervous about places he can slip through, but every inch of the fence was secure and safe for him to smell as much as his heart desired. Can’t wait to come back!
Oh my gosh - how much fun! It was so nice to see my girl run free and chase a ball as hard she could, without the worry of other dogs! Karen’s Sniffspot is very nice. It’s wide-open (fenced in space) gives ample running room. It is well maintained, the grass was short, plenty of toys and other amenities - it was great!
Clean large area with lots of enrichment activities. My 4 month old had a great time building her confidence on all the different obstacles.
Love to have my morning coffee here while my sometimes dog-reactive pup can safely explore!
Always a great time! The dogs love it
We enjoyed our time at the property. There was an open space with agility obstacles, a shaded area with seating, and a water pump and bowls for staying hydrated. We plan to return.
My dog had a blast!! Such a wonderful property!
Easy parking close to the gate! The girls loved running and checking all the new smells out!! Will definitely be back!
Our dogs really enjoyed their time out here. Wonderful setup, everything from toys to the property itself for the dogs to play on. Definitely will be visiting again in the future!
Great location, open and clean. Pups had a ton of fun running free and we enjoyed the peace of mind
This was a great spot with lots of vegetation for a curious dog to sniff along the fence and around the barns...in addition to lots of fun playthings to climb and toys to chase. Since we were there at noon on a hot, sunny day, we appreciated the provided shade and chairs for our use and water and bowls for the dogs.
My fourth time here love this place the dogs love running around it’s a perfect spot
Nice “spot”. Shade, water, toys, bowls, things to play on!
This was our first SniffSpot and we were super pleased with Acres of Fun! Loved that there was plenty of room for our pup to explore and run! All of the bins with supplies (toys, bowls, towels and bug spray) were an added bonus. We will definitely be back and would recommend!
Love the space!
Awesome spot! My dog had an absolute blast running around and getting all the smells. We will be back!
Amazing spot and lots of fun agility equipment to use! Really appreciated the toys and cold water on this hot day!
This is a great spot! We loved the agility equipment, there were plenty of toys, and lots of room to run around. The fencing was secure for my pups. It started raining while we were there, but the grass was plentiful so the pups didn't get muddy.
To get to the unfenced area at the back you have to pull the gate up and swing it, and it is likely to topple over, so just be careful. We also saw deer back there.
Very nice pasture in a beautiful setting. My boys did a very thorough inspection and sniffed every foot of the place. Host provides water bowls, toys, shade, bug spray, and a trash can which is very appreciated.
Acres of fun was perfect for our two large dogs. They spent time running, sniffing and exploring until they were exhausted. The instructions were easy to follow and the host leaves plenty of essentials for the play time. Our dogs were not interested in any of the toys as they just wanted to explore. Water, poop bags and towels were all provided by the host. Overall 100% enjoyed our time and will definitely book again.
Pups had a great time! We will definitely be back.
Fantastic, well-maintained property with lots of places to play. It got warm, and the pups appreciated the hose and kiddie pool, too!
This place was great for my 2 dogs. They have the essentials for your dog, water, space and toys! We will definitely be back!
This is an awesome SniffSpot! The yard is large and fully enclosed. The grass is full with no muddy spots. My pup loved jumping off the agility equipment. There were also many new smells for her to explore. We will
Perfect for any dog and their humans, but heaven “scent” for those four leggers who need a safe outlet to explore and sniff without the stressors that a routine leash walk at the park can bring. Karen has thought of everything to make it a positive experience. The location is serene and abundant with nature. Seeing our 9 1/2 year old senior dog zestfully running and exploring made it worth alone. Allowing our 2 year old pup the freedom to run, sniff, and play without triggers was invaluable. We will be back for certain and hope to use this gem as a foundation to continue to overcome the anxiety response that new places cause our pup.
Great spot for the dog to run around. If going early in morning like I did would be a good idea for you to bring a towel as the morning dew will result in a wet pup.
Really nice spot. Quiet, maintained, lots of accessories. Completely fenced in. We will be back!
The place was wonderful! Our husky loved everything! He ran around free for the entire time and thoroughly enjoyed himself. There were plenty of toys and obstacles around for him to play with, but he was more interested in sniffing all the different scents of nature around him. When we needed to cool off, there was a canopy set up in the shade with chairs and a table to relax at. We got our puppers a nice cold drink from the well, and he was able to cool down and relax some with us. Definitely planning another trip in the future! It was a great experience that I'd definitely recommend to others!
What a great experience! Tons of fun things for the pups to climb on, shade for the humans. Easy to find and access. Will definitely be returning!
Instructions were clear and the dogs had a wonderful time! We will definitely be back!
Our dog had so much fun here! The yard was the perfect size for his zoomies. I forgot to bring water and they offered clean bowls and water which was so amazing. We will be back for sure.
Our pups had a great time! Area was easy to access and everything was just as described.
Perfect spot with a great table and shade. We had a lovely picnic with the pup there.
Tons of space for sniffs
I have three dogs and one can never be off leash because she runs away what a great treat for her to be able to run with her two friends I recommend his place to anyone perfect spot for my dog
Acres of fun was great. Everything was as advertised. The dogs enjoyed the bin of toys, the safe yard to run in, fresh water from an ice cold well, and shady areas to stretch out in. There were toys, clean bowls for fresh water, towels and even bug spray (which we didn’t need). We will be back!
Fantastic experience. Every detail considered, lovely, fun, beautifully maintained facility. Will be back!
Fantastic spot! It had everything we need. Our Puggle is very introverted but she loves to sniff, so this was the perfect place for her to roam free without worrying about other dogs. We also had a family member’s very active corgi with us, and he loved being able to run and run. Very comfortable for pups and humans alike!
We had a wonderful time even with rainy weather. The humans hung out under cover in the chairs provided while the dogs romped. Loved the stumps, etc provided for climbing too. Super private and peaceful.
My dog loved it
Loved how big the fenced yard is and all the obstacles to explore!
Lovely spot. Private and nicely set up for any kind of dog. Super clean. The toys, water, and supples were a welcome surprise although my dog were more into the sniffing and exploring.
Lots of room to run. Butterflies to chase. Obstacle course for the Olympic type dogs! A sniffing paradise.
The pups loved their free running time!
Lovely wide open space! My pup enjoyed running everywhere. Thank you. Will definitely be back again.
The space was great for our pups, one of whom is dog and stranger reactive. Clean, spacious, and private, with some great toys and equipment for them to explore. Thanks for having us!
What a great spot! Grover had so much fun exploring the agility equipment. There are toys, bowls and fresh water available. We’ll definitely be back.
This spot is amazing! My stranger-reactive pup and my roommate’s dog-reactive pup loved it here and enjoyed the agility obstacles so much. The fence is great and there is a nice spot to sit and cool off in the shade. We did hear the dogs on the property, but were not able to see them at all! Thank you so much for sharing this space with us :)
What a perfect spot for my doggie to run and play!!!
Wonderful as always!
Great Sniffspot!! Plenty of safe space to let you dog roam with agility equipment and a place for people to sit. Also very considerate with toys, poop bags and towels etc are neated labeled even though we brought our own stuff it’s nice to know in the future if we forgot anything! My puppy was tired out and really enjoyed her time!
We enjoyed this safe, private Sniffspot. Look forward to coming back!
This is a great spot! Lots of roaming space and toys. There was a perfect amount of shade. We will be hanging out here again
We had a great time! Our dog loved running around and exploring! We will definitely be back!
This was our first sniffspot and we had such a great time. it was huge, with tons of obstacles and toys for our precious Cookie. Will absolutely be coming back!
Great spot! Big grassy area, plenty for pups to explore, and secure fencing!
Amazing spot! Our two huskies had an absolute blast. Area is big enough to work on off leash recall, but extremely secure so no concerns of anyone running off! We’ll definitely visit again!
The agility activities are a fantastic addition! Thank you!
Super clean with cool and fresh water available for tired and hot doggies, a bin full of toys and another bin full of doggy essentials just in case you forgot something at home. There was so much for my dog to sniff and safely explore!
Very well maintained and friendly area. Plenty of space to run around and activities for my dog to do. Will definitely return
Pups had a great time sniffing everything and exploring the parkour obstacles. Lots of fun!
Our dogs had a great time running around and sniffing. We can’t take them to a dog park so this is perfect.
First Sniffspot a wonderful success!! This is such a great spot with lots of interesting objects that have been carefully placed so that dogs can explore and have fun on “agility” equipment. Relaxing for the humans too because of the shaded area to sit.
Our dogs really enjoyed their visit! There were a ton of fetch/tug toys available to use. Our dogs were most interested in exploring and smelling all the new scents. The shaded area and water were nice for when they were tired. The area was very clean and well maintained.
My reactive dog never gets to just run around off lead. Thank you so much for sharing your property with us. It is clean and has everything a dog and their person could want!!
As always, this Sniffspot is fantastic! My dog loves coming here! Thank you!
Very nice sized yard! Lots of room for my 2 Shepherds to run. Will definitely be back!
Plenty of space to run around. I brought my own water bottles and bowls for my 3 dogs. They enjoyed being off leash for a bit.
Absolutely gorgeous play area! Very clean, excellent play opportunities, well-stocked, we had a great time. My doggo is an older boy and doesn't like crowds so this was perfect for him. Thank you so much for providing this sniffspot and helping my Puck have the day of his dreams!
Our dog had so much fun! Super clear instructions and rules. We felt like our dog was very safe in the space and it was so sweet that they had different toys for him to play with.
Worth the trip from DC! Such a wonderful spot for my dog to be a dog and escape the city. Clean, shaded area to sit, easy to find via Google Maps. Bonus was the cute cider stand a few miles down the road. Rent the backyard and then stop for cider and food at Two Story Chimney Ciderworks. Perfect afternoon!
Acres of fun was just that! Was so nice to be able to let my dogs run around in a safe environment. Everything you could need was provided, toys, water and a shady spot with a comfy chair. Would definitely recommend.
Awesome spot! We’ve been here twice and both times our dogs have had a blast. One is sniffer and that keeps her quite busy, the other just wants to run after his frisbee! They recently added agility elements which really enhanced the experience for both us and our dogs! Wonderful spot. We will be regulars!
Easy to find, easy parking, secure fence, lots of grass for running, plenty of toys. Plants, objects, and a barn make for some great sniffs and the bowls and water were appreciated. Shade structure and chairs for the humans. This was a fantastic spot to explore. We will be back.
Loved this place. Definitely worth the drive!
Acres of Fun was such a treat!!! My dog, Blue, and I had a blast. We’ve recently had a lot of rain in the area so I was pleasantly surprised to see there was barley any mud! The plot of land felt so secure and private, it was so nice to sit back and relax with my pup. Thank you for having us!! We will definitely be back!!
Our pups had an amazing time! So much room to run and play and new smells to sniff. Will be back!
This spot never fails to disappoint and the new agility equipment makes it even better!
Lost track of how many times we’ve been here and was pleasantly surprised to see some added new play features and shade options. Even a new gate.
Moses took advantage of the stumps!
Clean, mowed area. Lots of toys and a decent amount of space for my two dogs to play and run!
Our dog really enjoyed this place. Thank you very much. We will be back again.
This is a good place for new experiences for dogs, clean, safe, quiet. We liked it, thanks!
So great for my reactive pup to just get the space to romp and decompress with no triggers. I get to do the same. Love it. It’s a beautiful spot too. All the boxes checked for us.
Great Sniffspot for our reactive dog!
Nice and enjoy
This was our first sniff spot and we enjoyed every second! Wonderful place with beautiful views and so many toys provided for your pup to play with! We will definitely be back!
My family and I and our 2 puppies loved the place. My golden retriever loved being able to run free!!! Definitely will return
This was out first time at this location. Favorite yet. Really superb, and as advertised. Clean, nicely fenced, andgood sele turnoff toys. Nicely sloped in areas. Our dog loved running the perimeter and smelling/exploring. Worth the 40-minute drive for us. Thank you tithe owners for sharing your property!
We always enjoy our time here. Two of our pups are reactive, so coming here to play off leash is a very nice break for them. You can hear other dogs, but they can’t come into the fenced area, so we don’t mind. Some are also very talkative and funny 😂
This was a wonderful spot, and my dog absolutely loved it. Clean, safe, secure, very pretty, and lots of toys and amenities provided. We will be back!
Had another wonderful visit! Every dog I bring has an absolute blast ☺️
My Winston loved it! He didn’t want to leave.
I loved this SniffSpot and will definitely be returning! Tons of space, secure fencing, lots of toys and bowls for water. I'd give even more stars if I could!
This was our first Sniffspot, and it was perfect. It was a great place for my dog to explore and wander. I think we both just enjoyed being outside in the country for an hour. Added bonus: it's a beautiful country drive leading up to this spot. Definitely recommend.
Great spot! It’s big and I was able to keep an eye on my pooch when seated. She tired herself out before our time was up! Definitely will be back again. Thanks, Karen!
Fun time had by all. Thanks again Karen for letting us visit!
Lots of fun in clean spacious and serene acres
Large, well fenced area. Well tended and stocked with tennis balls and throwers. Great spot.
Awesome space for our dogs!!
Great spot! Easy to find, so much room for pups to play & wonderful amenities.
Doggy heaven! What a great big space for pups to run and play. They had such fun sniffing, exploring, and playing with the toys.
A really beautiful piece of land. The pups were in disbelief that they could roam so far.
The instructions to arrive were very helpful and the area was so fantastic. My dog loved the amount of space and sniffed each inch of those acres!
Nice large yard in a quiet area. Great for ball and getting your pup together with a friend!
Great spot, lots of space to run around and play fetch.
Sufficiently, perfectly fenced even for a big dog. Lovely clean and mowed grounds. Very private and some amenities (2 chairs and a table) for humans. Fresh water bowl and poop bags and a few toys for dogs. Couldn't find the pooper scooper but all in all worth the money...we will return.
Dog. Loved. This. Spot.
This location is securely fenced in, and with a curious dog who LOVES to sniff, the barn and the periphery were full of wonderful new smells to keep him moving for an entire hour. His big pink tongue was hanging out, and I was so happy to have found a place to let my energetic, curious (and reactive!) dog off-leash to run safely and explore. We will be back!
Lots of room for dogs to run!
It was great my three dogs loves it. The place was actually relaxing and listening to the birds also clean and amazing. Will be definitely coming back
Well-maintained yard, solid fencing, lots of toys, and a nice space to sit. Karen is kind and has clear directions to the spot. My young dog has a high-prey drive and is very dog-reactive so having a space like this to blow off steam was great!
This place was wonderful! Easy to find, clean and secure. Our two dogs loved it.
This was our pups first time and she had an absolute blast! I don’t think I’ve ever seen her run and play that much. Great space and exactly as described
Wonderful place to let our dog run!
This place was wonderful! Tons of room for my dog to run and sniff, and a nice shady spot with a table and chairs for me.
Another great time. Love the chairs and canopy!
It was a absolutely beautiful scene.
A beautiful open space! And super clear instructions for access, etc.
Great place for dogs to run and release some energy. Directions were very clear! I appreciated the dog toys that were available. I also liked that there was a table and chairs. My two pups left very happy and tired :)
Perfect spot to take my anxious dog to run some energy out. Area is fully fenced with a table and chairs to set down our things
Large open space for the pup to run! The yard was clean.
Beautiful spot, and exactly as advertised. Our pup had a great time!
We had a fantastic time! Huge green area, super clean/well-tended, securely fenced, plenty of room for our dog to run and sniff, plus super comfy shaded area (with chairs and a table) for humans to sit back and relax. We will definitely be back!
Exactly as described.
Exactly as promised and exactly why we needed. Great spot!
Just left our first visit… it was perfect. Everything is as posted. Our dog was so happy to sniff, explore, play catch with his favorite frisbee and just chill on a gorgeous day!
Can’t wait until our next visit. 🐶 💙
This spot was easy to find and everything the listing stated. Yard was 100% secure. Maggie had an amazing time. Will be back!
My dogs had a blast and wore each other out! We stopped by on our way to a hotel and they had fun getting out of the car to stretch their legs. Lots of room to run, plenty of toys, water, and a little pool. The next time we come through here, we'll definitely be back!
Acres of fun was my first Sniffspot. We had a great time! The parking and entry instructions were thorough and clear. The fence was secure. There were water bowls, toys, shade, and a table a chairs. I purchased an hour of time and it went by in a flash. We’ll definitely be back. Thanks so much for sharing your space!
Second time. My dog got on my phone, and made this reservation. She loves it, but spends half the time looking for an escape route, but there aren't any she can find. I think the nice scenery teases her, and says, "please hop over the fence."
Fun place with lots of room to run around. Well-kept and off the road.
Great spot for a pup to run, play and explore
The blue tote where the water bowls are stored is by the chairs/table not near the water pump. Good space for an active dog.
My 2 GSPs had fun here. There's ample space to run a lot for active dogs. Definitely going here again.
Always our favorite spot! Love the addition of the shade spot and the little pool for the pups. Helped extend our visit on a warmer day!
Spot exactly as described and owner gave very good instructions on how to access the property. Our dogs had a wonderful time exploring.
Beautiful grassy field with plenty of room to run and play. Shaded areas to enjoy and fresh water available. A+++
We had a great visit! Nice area with plenty of room to run! And beautiful views
Another great time at Acres Of Fun!!!
Fun time, big area and clean and well maintained.
We did have acres of fun; exploring, running, playing, relaxing in the shade!!!
Everything was just a described and it was a lovely setting with lots of open space.
This is hands down best spot in DC metro area!!!
Beautiful spot. Dogs had a blast!
Love this Sniff Spot! Its a little far from us, otherwise we would be here all the time. It was a great addition to have the baby pool for the dogs to keep cool, and the table, chairs, and overhang to keep the people cool!
I haven’t seen my dog this happy in a while! Excellent place to run around. The area was clean, easy to find, and well kept. We will absolutely be returning soon!
Tons of space for both training off-leash skills and playing and also just sitting to chill in the spots of shade. Hope to come back soon!
This is our favorite Sniff Spot so far! .. and we have been to quite a few!
This is our first time booking a Sniffspot and Karen made it a great experience! Communication was great and directions were clear. There was so much space for our dogs to run around and enjoy. We drove up from Northern VA and it was absolutely worth it! Highly recommend!
Wow this spot is so scenic! I was driving from eastern shore to Ohio and stopped here for a pit stop with the pups. It was so relaxing. The spot is set back from the road and surrounded by fields so very private. I went in the early morning so the birds were out and the fields were fresh. I would highly recommend this spot, will return whenever I am in the area!
Lovely as always! The hosts have put up a little shade sail with chairs underbeath which was really nice for the summer!
We loved it! Our dog didn't want to leave at the end of our time. We will definitely visit again. Thanks!
I love this Sniffspot! It's my dog's favorite place to go. Tons of space and a beautiful view. It's a great way for me to decompress along with my dog.
We found the property we kept and tidy. Completely fenced in as advertised. Shade was provided which was great on a hot summer afternoon.
Was a nice space for our older dog to run. Was exactly as advertised.
Definitely plan on coming back! Came with my trainer and were able to work on recall and played some too!
Great fenced in spot! My dog slept like a log for hours afterwards!
The property is beautiful and always well mowed. There is also a newly installed shade area with a table and chairs. Very nice for getting out of the heat of the sun.
This spot has a new shaded covering for humans with a nice house table and chairs - perfect for the summer weather! My pup found shade with this too as well as under the pines. Fantastic spot for dogs who need some extra room and quiet!
This was my first visit to a Sniffspot and my dog and I had a great time. My dog ran almost the entire hour - chasing a rabbit and exploring everything. She was bushed at the end. We went into the back field which was so interestibg to her - it’s not fully fenced but if your dog has good recall this shouldn’t be a problem. The area was very clean. Toys and water are available as well as a covered seating area for humans. I highly recommend it. Gorgeous drive to the property.
My two dogs loved running around in this farm meadow. There were two chairs and a table set up under a shady canopy. I would go back again.
Great fenced in field with shade and water available.
Plenty of open space and very secure! Our dogs loved it!
Lovely and peaceful. My girls loved exploring the shed and chasing the birds inside!
First but not last visit! We had an absolutely peaceful, calm and serene visit. My two very large, senior rescue dogs had a fantastic time sniffing all around this beautiful property. Since moving from a house into an apartment, my dogs miss being free off leash. This was the perfect solution and I am so glad I chose this location. The space is huge and very secure by fence. There is a very slight slope and openness that makes it perfect for a dog of any age, including my seniors. Young, high energy dogs would LOVE this space! Everything is well marked and easy to follow to get into the yard. The space is clean and free of doggy waste and I loved the fresh, cold well water pump with bowls provided. Some areas are shaded which my shepherd liked and there is even a shady area to sit, with chairs and a table. Excellent experience in a private setting- can't wait to go back, we are going to make this a regular thing.
I booked again as soon as we got back home - its a beautiful, secure, clean and relaxing setting for pups and humans. My pups’ look when they realized they were free to roam was priceless ...
Great area for the dogs to run! There was even some shade to escape the sun early in the morning. Fenced area was secure and the dogs had an excellent time! Very clean and short grass as well. We will be back!
Top shelf as usual ...this is by far one of the best places in the DC area to go to and will continue to be my go to spot with my two dogs!!!
Our dog Elliot had so much fun! The fence is secure and plenty of room for him to run around and sniff. Everything was clearly marked and it’s a beautiful setting. We can’t wait to go back!
Sawyer, Tanner and Greyson thoroughly enjoyed their visit!
Great spot! Very quiet and peaceful. Easy to locate.
Great place for the pups to roam around, will be back soon!
Beautiful location with a lot of room for your dogs to run!
This was a great spot! It was easy to find, clean, and the fence was secure so we didnt have to worry about dogs getting out. There was tons of room for the dogs to run.
Great spot!! Easy to find and our dogs were wiped out within 30 min! Loved how we didnt have to worry about other dogs either
Always a great day when we visit this spot! We could not ask for a better place for the pups to play.
Great spot! Lots of room to sniff and run. The had toys, water, waste bags, and more. The even had a couple chairs set up for the owners to relax in a shaded area!
An hour of PURE JOY! Karen’s fenced in space was absolute heaven for our pups. They got to sniff, explore, run around, play fetch, and enjoy time off leash without worrying about other dogs or people. We will definitely be coming back!
Huge fenced in area perfect for the pups to run around. Quiet, safe, clean, and gorgeous.
The dogs had a blast!
My dogs had such a wonderful time-the yard was just perfect! There was water and toys available and some chairs to relax in. It was the happiest hour my dogs have ever had! I highly recommend this location and I know my pups and I will be back!
Acres of fun was incredible! Not only did my dog adore running around off leash and sniffing everything she possibly could but just sitting there watching the sunset with my husband was A very relaxing time for us as well. We can’t wait to visit again!
Awesome field and you selection. Easy to get there. Plus the amazing view. I highly recommend this place. My very energetic pups is not so energetic now.
The main area is secure and a good size to run around and play fetch. Part of the barn is available for shelter if needed and there are also some chairs available. The secondary area (noted as unfenced) is mostly enclosed, although there would be ways for a dog to escape if they were so minded. That area has a grove of trees to wander around in. My dog didn't notice them, but I saw some deer watching us from the far end of the secondary area; they were gone by the time we entered that area. Overall a good experience despite some incoming bad weather.
Lovely field, secure. The dogs had so much fun we are definitely coming back. There is a water source and plenty of room to run and play.
Our German Shepherd puppy had so much fun in this open space. He was tired out within 15 minutes! There is a well with cold water - which was helpful because we ran out of the water we brought. There was enough shade along the fence line for the pup to get out of the sun & a couple chairs for us humans to sit too!
Secure as usual. We got rained-out with about 15 minutes left, but we still had a good time!
Beautiful space, clean, quiet, and great for sniffing around or games of fetch. Love coming here!!
Arius and Neli had so much fun at this Sniffspot! The fences were secure, and there is a barn that the pups explored. They ran around so much and passed out in the car 🤣
Our first visit was a big hit, we will definitely be back!! Our dog has a ton of energy but is extremely reactive to other dogs on a leash. We needed somewhere safe to let her run without other dogs, and this was perfect. Just sad I didn’t find it sooner!!
Fantastic area to exercise our dogs. Toys, water and chairs provided. Beautiful surrounding landscape for human enjoyment, too!
This is an absolutely perfect spot for any dog! So much room to run and enjoy. Completely fenced in and without the worry of other dogs joining that you're not familiar with. Our reactive pup loves it here where he can play fetch stress free. We will be regulars!
Acres of Fun is the perfect spot to take my dog, Waylon! He loved free running and exploring all the smells and when he was done with the that, tote of toys and balls kept him active for the rest of the visit!
Clean, safe, and tons of running space! Best spot around!
This sniffspot is a wonderful refuge for my leash reactive, easily stimulated dog. Large open field with plenty of room to run, great enriching smells, and quiet! Peaceful for humans too - and space to get your own steps in if you like 😁. I’m very grateful!
This was Daisy's first visit to a Sniffspot, this is what she had to say about it:
Our dogs loved the space to just run and have fun! Will definitely be back!
Our pups had a great time with their first visit!
I like this place! I walked the perimeter with my dog, just to make sure it was secure as advertised, and it was. There were two outdoor chairs that were comfortable and a box full of toys. Water was available, as promised, in the barn entrance.
The only thing I would suggest for the owner, is that they install a latch on the pink entrance gate, instead of relying on the ground to secure it when its closed.
Other than that (can be easily fixed) I will be back here with my GSP. She's a rescue I'm working with on recall commands, and having a secure, safe, private area so close to home is really great!
Jeff Nagy - Kings Valley
This was our first time using Sniff Spot at Acres of Fun in Mt Airy and we had a great time. Our puppy was able to run around with the kids and play. It was great to have the whole area to ourselves and we will definitely be going again!
We loved Acres of fun, this was our first time using sniff spot and it was easy and great. This location was secure, 10 minutes from our house and quiet. Our labradoodle, Fred , had a great time running around. We have a small townhouse yard , so we will be coming again to get him tired.There was water and toys for the dogs.
Great second visit for both the dogs and the humans. Water, poop bags, open space and fresh air -- can't ask for more!
Just returned from acres of fun. Nice open space and clean. My dogs especially loved sniffing around the barn area. I have 2 very tired pups :).
Great and spacious and private area. Am definitely heading back asap!
This Sniffspot was great! So much room to run, everything you would need, and Karen was so responsive and accommodating.
Wonderful space for both my dog and kids to run around!
The spot was GORGEOUS. The dogs loved it. My younger dog, Augusta, got to get all her zoomies out and Ryder had plenty of space to play fetch. There was also a ton of places for them to explore and sniff at. The area was also well stocked with toys, bags, and, thoughtfully, hand warmers, which we were SO greatful for. We had trouble wrangling the dogs into the car because they didn't want to leave! Definitely worth a revisit.
Directions to Sniffspot and use of host-provided amenities were very clear/specific. Easy to find; easy parking; easy access. Really appreciated the toys and available water -- and chairs for the humans. And there were handwarmers -- we didn't use them, but we really appreciated that they were there if needed! Our dogs loved being off-leash; they were completely tuckered out by the end of the hour. We'll be back!
We had a great time! Super clean, great sight lines, easy to access and very secure. Really appreciated the thoughtful hand warmers and open space for our pup to romp. Well worth the drive from Alexandria! Will be back with friends and their dogs for sure. Thank you for a great morning!
This Sniffspot provided more than enough space for our dog to run around and play. It is easy to find and the water bowls and chairs were convenient. We'll definitely be going back!
We’ve been coming weekly we love it so much. Great place for the dogs to run & play and the people to decompress!
Excellent spot...plenty of room for my two dogs....exactly as described...will def return again!!
Lots of running space in aa quite setting.
Best spot ever! Our pups could run for days!
My dog had the BEST time at this Sniffspot! It was quiet, had lots of interesting smells, and there was plenty of room for zoomies! We’ll definitely be back.
My dogs had the absolute best time here. The area is beautiful and quiet. Huge area for them to run and play!
Our second visit was just as enjoyable as the first! Nice open, quiet space for our pup to run around and we hope to be back soon!
This Spot is an important part of our lives now. It is perfect for our fearful dog as sniffing helps him freely decompress and we can work on building confidence safely... and great for humans who like to lay on the ground and stare at the sky! Beautiful spot.
We had a great time with our dog and our friends’ dog as well. The space is HUGE and securely fenced.
The yard was huge and clean. The entire area fenced in. Toys were available for my dog to play with. Highly recommended.
Huge lot, great for pups to run around.
Great place to take my dog on a Friday afternoon. Easy to find and had a bin of fun toys. My dog loved all the smells and we had a great time
Directions clear, everything where she said it would be. Lovely setting, dogs had so much fun!!
Huge yard/field for your dog to run safely off leash or just enjoy the smells. Very quiet and peaceful which is a huge help for my reactive dog. I drove from northern Virginia and wasn’t too bad of a drive on the weekend and worth the time for my dog to be able to decompress. The owner graciously leaves out a dog bowl, toys and there are seats for us humans to decompress as well Highly recommend!
Big open sloped fenced field. Very private. Isaac Walton league is nearby so there is gunfire. Host provides everything your dog needs for a good time (plus chairs for humans).
Great open and secure area to let our puppy run around freely! The provided toys and water bowls were a great feature. We’ll definitely be back!
Lots of space, very secure, and quiet!
Had a great second visit!
Great visit, beautiful day and huge spacious lot. My pups loved playing fetch.
I am so grateful for this particular spot. It’s perfect for my reactive pup bc there are no triggers and he can just be himself...a huge fenced in space of gently rolling grass for playing, running, working on recalls or just chilling out. It also happens to be beautiful and quiet and besides seeing my boy freely roaming about the whole experience did my heart good too. Thank you.
Great spot and a nice secure place for a play date! Lots of things to smell - my dog had a great time running and finding sticks to play with along the way.
We have so much fun every time we go! My dog loves to play with all the available toys. she loves being able to run free and I love not having to worry about her!
Such peace!! I was so happy to let my dogs sniff, roam, fetch (YES! A big Chuckit!!!) and bask in the sun. We were there for 2 hours and all three dogs enjoyed every second. Definitely going back despite the distance from me!
Everything was easy and exactly as described.
Easy to find with really helpful directions for finding the entrance and anything we needed (toys, poops bags, etc).
Very quiet with lots of room to run, we checked out the perimeter before going off leash, but (as promised) everything was secure.
We will definitely go back!
Wonderful spot. Beautiful grounds, very secure, and has plenty of toys to keep our dogs playing and having fun. Will definitely be back!
Such a great spot, away from the busyness of the city. My anxious dog was finally able to relax and have fun!
A lot of space for the dogs to run!
Such a great, secure place for pups to run! We had a great time playing in the snow!
This was our first sniffspot experience and it was AMAZING! Tons of room to run, lots of fun toys, water bowls, beautiful scenery for humans and dogs to enjoy. We will be back!
Beautiful spot however host dogs would not stop rushing their fence barking and very agitated if we got one one part of the property or if my dogs started running. They yelled at the dogs but with little effect. The first time I figured it was OK but it wouldn’t stop and was majorly stressing out my anxiety prone dog. Would not recommend if host can’t manage her own dogs.
We had a blast in this spot! The yard was huge and had a beautiful view! Was so well kept as well! My dog loved running up and down the hills! The yard was super clean as well! Thank you so much!
This is our favorite weekend SniffSpot! Love that you can chuck the ball and the pup never has to “put on the breaks.” Definitely recommend!
Our second visit and this spot is such a blessing for us. My reactive boy, always on lead gets to be a dog. Even tho I screwed up booking we still made it and I can’t wait to get back. Moses was so sleepy and satisfied. The fenced area has gentle slopes and a cool building to sniff around. We got to practice long distance recalls too. (we need to work more)
Our favorite spot!
Huge, beautiful fenced-in area, perfect for epic games of fetch and running around.
As always, we had a great time. This time though my daughter and her two dogs joined us! Interesting group as the two girls are much younger than the two boys. So much fun to watch how the girls ran circles around the boys.
our second time visiting this SniffSpot and it did not disappoint! such beautiful views and wide open space to fetch and play! Cora loved hearing the horses neigh at the farm nearby. We love spending time here!
The visit was great. My dog Hachi had a blast there. The fenced yard is huge and well fenced. The entrance is is very easy to spot and enter. There is another half fenced yard in the back, and some of the plants are thorny, so be a bit careful while having fun there. We will definitely come back again, and I highly recommend it to whoever is looking for a large area for their dogs to run around free.
Great space! Dogs had a amazing time.
Karen is wonderful. The space is clean, green and fenced in. She provides water, poop bags and toys. We went with a group of dogs -- there was plenty of room for them to run and play and for us to stay socially distanced.
Fantastic! Our pup loved I! Thank you!!
Beautiful spot, very large and well tended. Easy to access and secure. Our dog could run off leash safely and had a great time.
Great spot for sniffing, exploring, playing fetch, and watching the sun set! I’d be careful with escape artist types here due to the fence, but unless you have a dog who will actively look for holes, you’ll be all set! (Hence why only one of my two came to play, haha.)
Huge beautiful fenced in area, perfect for an afternoon of fetch.
Amazing fully fenced lot for the perfect fetch session and exploring. My pup had such a great time. Water bowls, doggy bags, and toys are provided but we brought our own chuck it. My dog had so much fun romping around that she was tired within 20 mins. Such beautiful scenery as well.
It was quiet and peaceful. We felt very comfortable and had a fantastic frolic in the big empty grassy area! Nothing that open and fenced and grassy in old town!
A very nice spot for allowing dogs to run free. I appreciate the chairs you have for us humans too!! THank you. This is such a wonderful idea...
Moses had a great time today. It is a beautiful quiet fully fenced area with easy access. There is a little outbuilding perfect for snooping around. Chairs and toys !. This is a perfect Sniffspot if your pooch is reactive too. Beautiful drive. Thanks Karen!
Our second time back at this sniffspot- our pup seemed to remember and immediately started zooming around. We appreciated the chairs left out and thought it was thoughtful the owner left some toys in a bin for visitors.
Another great day at Acres of Fun!
We had so much fun at Acres of fun. One of my dogs is an escape artist and for the full hour looked for an escape spot...happy to report he didn’t find one. The toys, water bowl, chairs and waste bags are such nice details that we appreciate. Can’t wait to be back.
A great space - our dogs love it! The grassy area is more than big enough for our two German Shepherds to run around to their hearts' content. Will definitely be coming back here for more fun.
Directions were easy, yard clean and euchre. Pups had a great run!
Second visit, Karen was very responsive to all my questions. Loved the chair and the new box of toys that we can now use
As with the first visit, we so enjoy your property. The horses next door were very "talkative" and my guys were trying so hard to find them.
Great fully fenced, large space for some outdoor fun! The owner gave clear instructions on how to get there and access the space, and our pups had a blast! Thanks!
If you are looking for an open, grassy, large area for your dog to run in the beautiful countryside this is it! The host, Karen, is friendly and informative. Loved our visit. We will be regulars at Acres of Fun.
My two dogs loved playing, running, and rolling in the grass. We live in a heavily wooded area and our backyard has no grass. So this was a great treat for them. The 2 year old was finally able to run full speed without having to resort to the "zoomies" to get her exercise.
I was concerned when I saw a small barn in the dog yard. So, we checked it out. It really added to their nose (nosey😉) experience and it was safe.
I have been looking for a place like this for my two labradors to run to their hearts content! This is a HUGE beautiful, grass filled, fenced in area, and I felt completely comfortable letting the dogs just run and sniff and play! We had the entire field to ourselves!
our second visit here and just as great!
My dogs loved it here, especially the shady spots under the trees. We'll be back!
Spacious, grassy, and safe area. We drove almost an hour to get to this area for our dog and we were not disappointed! Our dog is extremely picky and we’ve tried several other yards on sniffspot. This is by far her favorite where she felt safe enough to run freely as much as she wanted. We will happily make the hour trip again
Nice large fenced area. Fence was secure and the area was safe and mowed. No mud, all grass :)
The dogs had fun sniffing the fence line and running around in a new area.
This was my first time visiting this sniffspot, my dog Lumi had a blast!!! She is shy, and doesn’t really play with toys and stresses at crowded dog parks, so we are constantly looking for ways to enrich her life. In this fenced in acre of beautiful land, she was ZOOMING! I’ve seriously never seen her run so much or so joyously. She also loved inspecting the plants/trees at the perimeter and rolling in the grass. It was a great place for both her and her two humans to enjoy the quiet/tranquility of the countryside and decompress. Parking was easy and we had no issue letting ourselves in to the fenced area, will definitely visit again. Thanks for letting us visit!
Great large acreage for our non friendly doggo to run around an explore! She even got to chase some deer (from behind the fence). Beautiful open property! We’ll definitely come back!
