Perfect spot! A little bit of everything...short grass, tall grass, sun, shade! The pups had a great time snooping around getting their sniff on! Highly recommend!

A great spot for dog meetups! Several shady spots, fresh water for the dogs, and a friendly host! A nice big area for off-leash play.

This place was great !  I came here with all three of my pups the owner was very accommodating. I have a reactive pup and the owner was so considerate to close back gate so all my pups could run around freely.  To upcoming visitors: They have a bowl for water but bring your water to fill up.

Absolutely the best location we've been to through sniff spot. Host was awesome, had a large water bowl for the pup and even offered us a bottle of water. Beautiful property, well kept and cleaned. Had benches under the main shade tree. It will now be our go to get away for our fur baby who loves to run and roam. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

It was a beautiful large space. Our dogs loved running around the whole yard! We have three big dogs, so it was great having a place big enough for all of them. We were there for about an hour and a half and only saw the neighbors dog once just as we were leaving. It seemed like even the neighbor was being polite and keeping her dog inside for us. Our host left us water, toys, and a kiddy pool that our pups loved!

Pretty big yard! Lots of trees and shade. Many toys, and a ball or two, lying around in the grass as well. There's a table with chairs in the front yard and a hammock in the back, so there's seating as well! The host made sure to give us plenty of fresh water before we came.

Mary is great to work with and very responsive. The neighbors did have their dogs out, but there was more than enough property for our pup to burn his energy away from them. Thank you for a great first time using Sniffspot, we will be back!

Me and my pups had a great time at Mary’s place! The land is very spacious and beautiful for the dogs to run around, and is also completely gated! I was contemplating booking 2 hours in worries we wouldn’t have enough time but my dogs were TIRED by the time we reached the hour mark! It’s a great place for your dog me to run around and get some great sniffs in. Will definitely be back 🤗

My dogs loved having a complete fenced in area to run circles in that was in a quiet, peaceful area! We all had a great time. Host even let us know of the conditions of the place in the morning and left hand warmers since it was so cold.

We loved this Sniffspot. It was plenty big for our Whippets to run and get out their energy. Loved the view and the quietness of the countryside, birds singing, etc. Our dogs had a blast!

our dogs had a wonderful time running freely through the acreage. The area was very safe and clean.  Mary’s instructions on how to get in, where to park and how to leave were clear and easy to understand. We will definitely be back and make this a regular event for our dogs.

Lovely spot! My pack had a brilliant time stretching their legs. Mary was super accommodating, even offered us hand warmers as it was a tad chilly. Well groomed and safe place for your hounds to run and explore. Will definitely be visiting again!

MJ’s was a phenomenal spot for my dog because he was able to run at free will with no issues. This was my first time using Sniffspot. Mary provided excellent communication with the protocols for my visit. There was no one or animal in sight during our visit. Lots of dog toys, fresh water for my pup, available trash can, relaxing outdoor patio area for people to relax to watch their pup, and very clean. I would highly recommend MJ’s for a secure fenced area in a private setting for you & your pup. Thank you again Mary.

Such a beautiful spot to bring your pups for some time to stretch their legs! But the sound of silence had to have been the best part for everyone. Mainly nearby farm animals and neighbors dogs you can hear. The rest is a beautiful and serene vibe for my family and our beloved pups. Amazing spot and will be coming back!
