Great spot! Our pup loved the room to run. Really nice that they also had dog toys available.
It was a good place. I was worried about some berry bushes but other than that, it was good.
Amazing yard! Really clean and plenty of room for my dog to run and practice recall!
Our dogs loved this yard! It was quiet, and they enjoyed the toys that were left out for them to play with. We will definitely be back!
Super kind owner who responded very quickly over chat to my concerns prior to renting (I have a reactive dog). The place was very easy to get to, and the neighbors were very kind as well. Highly recommend!
Alicia’s yard was perfect! My dog felt comfortable running around and it was easy to get to.
Great spot, large flat fully fenced yard. Not sure if a small dog could squeeze under the ramp to the shed-my pup was very interested in that spot but I kept him away.
We loved this spot! Very easy to access, a water spicket is available outside the fence (I brought a bowl which was helpful), and there were balls and frisbees for my dog as well as nice seating for the human. It was overall very pleasant and one of the more reasonably priced in the area. It was also very pleasant in the evening. I plan for us to come back maybe once every week or two!
Awesome spot & so much fun for our reactive pup!
Great space! The perfect size for my pup to run after a ball, and a good amount of shade next to the house when we came (in the morning). Host offered us to use the hose as well - perfect for a hot day! We’ll definitely be back :)
My go-to spot on SniffSpot!
Instructions were very clear!
Secure, clean lawn. My dog absolutely loved it! Very peaceful and easy. Much appreciated and will be back!
Fantastic, super clean, great location!
The yard was clean and completely secure. My dog Teddy gets overwhelmed by a lot of people and busy areas, so parks are not the best for him. He had a great time running around and enjoying time off leash! Could see very few people walking by from the yard and was quiet!
A great place for dogs to run and play- unfortunately it did not work out for us because we were afraid our dog would try to jump over the fence to reach a dog that was in the backyard on the other side of the fence.
That said, it was clean, it had a place for people to sit, and a great opportunity to play.
Wonderful yard with easy parking! We have a reactive dog and there were kids playing basketball in the next yard that you can see into, but we waited 10 min and they went inside. Toys and chairs were provided too! We will absolutely be back.
Great space for my pups to play and very clean!
This shaded yard is awesome. Huge tree in the back made is comfortable even on a warm summer day. Large yard with lots of space to run, sniff and eat grass. At one point a neighbor kid came out of one yard and our reactive buddy lost his mind but the kid was real respectful and didn’t engage us. We kept a long line on the entire time (just in case) because all the fencing is chain link but it is all very secure. Easy to access and plenty of parking.
The space was clean, quiet, and well kept. It was a bit too small for two pits to get all their energy out, but it was still very enjoyable.
Great spot. Nice open space and chairs to sit. Will be back.
Great space to exercise your pup! Will be returning soon.
Easy to find and park at, lovely quiet space with some shade in the afternoon. Fenced in area that was safe for our dog to roam. We’ll definitely be back!
I truly cannot speak highly enough of how accommodating and kind Alicia was during our visit. She left out toys, water, and extra chairs for us to use. This was the perfect spot for our pups and they had the best time! We will definitely be back :)
Good fenced-in backyard in a pretty secluded area. The backyard is very accessible and their is easy parking. Great find if you live in the area.
Nice yard with seating (for people) and both shade & sun areas. Thank you for sharing your yard with us!
Big yard, perfect for dogs that love running!
Great spot! Very quiet too, we didn't see or hear any people or dogs. The host left toys in the yard, which my pup enjoyed.
Fully fenced and fun to sniff and run around. Nice and quiet!
This yard is perfect for running, playing, sniffing, or just lounging about on a beautiful day! We will definitely be coming back!
Clean, nice space! My dog enjoyed it and parking was easy
We love this location, it is so peaceful and the host is always so nice. It’s a great place for your dog to run around without many distractions. My dog is reactive and there are no distractions or triggers that could set him off, he loves it here.
First time using sniff spot and in definitely won’t be the last. Chance had so much fun sniffing everything in sight. The yard was beautifully kept and perfect for Chance to run around in.
So nice to be here in the spring! Cleo was thrilled to roll in the grass and sniff the flowers!
A great spot for an anxious dog to run around, play fetch, and explore by himself. The yard was spacious and fenced well enough for our shepherd. We’ll definitely be back!
This is the second time we have used this sniffspot and it is perfect! Our little dog loves it, it is very peaceful back there. This time we arrived a little bit late and Alicia poked her head out of the window to let us know that we were welcome to still stay a full hour if we wanted, which we appreciated. We will be back soon!
Great area, easy parking. Fully fenced. I was able to let my 80 lb. Doberman pup run around without worry.
Excellent visit! So thankful for a space to take our dog to relax and play!
The yard was nice and open. Easy parking and easy to get in to the space. It felt weird to walk into a stranger’s back yard—not unsafe in any way, just odd to walk onto someone else’s property. It would be comforting if there was a sign on the gate. Also, some direction on which side of the house to go on to access the yard would have been helpful. Overall a nice space and experience.
Nice size yard, had some toys to play with. My dog was in heaven. Only feedback would be that there were loads of tree branches that she kept chewing on that I had to take away. I’m guessing this is just a seasonal issue since other photos and reviews don’t seem to mention tons of branches. Regardless, I would definitely go again my dog had a blast running around.
Nice and private spot! Our dogs were able to play in an open space, and I’d even come back for some outside recall training with my dog as there are very little distractions (outside of smells from other dogs :) )
great spot thats also fenced in my dogs loved this place will definitely be back!
This is a lovely neighborhood garden with plenty of room for playing and training without distractions. Easy to find and good parking. Suitable for dogs who are not high jumpers.
Perfect big lawn for lots of running. Easy parking and access.
My dog reactive heeler LOVES playing fetch here!
Exactly as listed. Fully fenced and secure. Remy had a blast!
Awesome experience! The yard was super clean. My labradoodle had an amazing time. Will definitely be coming back.
Easy parking, easy to find, I’ve been twice in the last month with a new puppy and I’ll certainly be going again!
I walked the perimeter, and didn’t see any issues with the fence, though when I go it’s usually for a playtime between two dogs and they are focused inside!
Both trips I didn’t notice any waste or mess!
My dog reactive heeler had a great time with his toys in the yard!
Excellent space, will book again. A huge thank you to the host, Alicia, for sharing her space! The fence is as tall as advertised and sturdy with no gaps. Two notes for future guests. First, there are several neighbors whose adjacent properties are not fenced. If your dog is sensitive to emotional or hyper children, ensure your pet is under control as most motivated dogs could likely hop the fence. Second, if your dog is prey motivated, I also recommend a quick perimeter check.
So convenient and great space to exercise and train my reactive dog. Thank you so much for sharing your space with us.
We have been to this Sniffspot probably about 20 times and have always had a great time and no issues.
Unfortunately on this visit, there was a dog in the neighbor’s yard that ran up to the fence towards my dog and we had to leave after about 2 minutes. I have never seen a dog around before, but my dog is reactive/cannot be around other dogs and we come to this spot so that she can be off leash without worrying about seeing any.
The space is great and has always been a perfect place for a reactive dog in the past, but I don’t know if the neighbors got a dog or it was just visiting, and I just wanted anyone with a reactive dog to know about it.
Well contained, very clean, just as described.
Well maintained and great space
It was great! We have a 6 month old German Shorthaired Pointer with tons of energy! Great clean, yard to let him run! We kept him on our 20 ft long leash just in case but definitely felt comfortable there! No openings in the fence and no other dogs or people nearby!
We've been coming here at least once week for over a month now and it's been great. It's the perfect spot.
Great little yard! Well kept and secure. We’ll be back :)
This was a great little spot for some safe running and play. The gate doesn't close flush so leaves a bit of a gap. This is not a problem for a big or medium sized dog but could be an issue for a small dog that might be determined to get out.
The yard was great, my dog had a blast running around! Nice chairs for the humans to sit in as well. The mosquitos came out at dusk so don’t forget bug spray.
We loved using this yard as our play place this afternoon. There was plenty of room to run, wrestle, and sniff to the hearts desire. The fencing was secure and parking was easy. There was a neighbor a couple doors down that yelled over “enough with the barking already!” But, to be fair we had a dog we’re sitting and she puppy barks while chasing. Otherwise a very pleasant experience, and I’ll consider returning for more visits!
Our first time using sniffspot, and we had a great experience. Lovely, private, easy to find. Thank you!
Great place to play with your puppies!! Thank you for making your yard available!
I think someone must have done a treat scatter here because the dogs were just grazing the whole time! Which is also unfortunate because my dog has food allergies, so hopefully she doesn’t have a reaction. Nicely kept up yard though.
Great space for our dog to explore! Would definitely recommend to others looking for a spot to take their pup not far outside the city.
Cooper and I love coming here. It's just enough space for my Puggle to run around and get some of his crazy out. :-) He also loves to eat grass and there is plenty of that!
Great spot for our dog to run around and play he had a great time! Will be back for sure.
The gate can be a little tricky to open, but that means that it makes it difficult for dogs to escape! My girls had a lot of fun, definitely will be back again.
Perfect place for our dog to run away and bask in the sun.
We enjoyed playing fetch here with our active pup! Nice, secure, and quiet yard.
Fully-fenced, clean, quiet, and super friendly owner. Our little dog sniffed to her heart's content and there are plenty of seats for humans. Would definitely come back!
It's a beautiful backyard. Lots of open grassy space. There are 2-3 rabbit holes towards the back fence, which our prey-driven dog was very interested in. If your dog gets thirsty, I recommend bringing your own bowl and water. Otherwise, the space is beautiful and pleasant, and our dog left very happy.
We had a blast at the oasis- no other pups or animals around and easy parking:)
Exactly as advertised, great safe fully enclosed spot for your furry friend to explore and get out some energy
Great small space for our two dogs to run, play and she even had a sprinkler available for a hot day!
Added a couple of pics. Can park in driveway and entry is right in front of parking spot!
Really nice and spacious. Lots to sniff and plenty of space to run.
Easy parking and access to the yard. Quiet neighborhood where my nervous dog was able to relax and play.
The space was great and SO close to my house we could walk there! Cooper loved being able to run free and chase balls. We'll be back again soon!
Leo had a ball!! I just couldn’t figure out how to fully shut the gate and he did run out of it so we had to leave 20 minutes early.
Big selection of toys and a perfect yard, bring your pups here! So convenient and secure
Perfect as always! No other dogs in sight, secure fencing, well maintained grass, even a hose with a sprinkler head!
Perfect! It is a nice tranquil spot and my pooch had a blast running around. It is clean, and exactly as advertised. I will be booking again for sure.
Fenced in, green grass, thank you!
Great spot. Enough room for the dogs to run. Ran the Aussie shepherd mix ragged in 20 minutes. Great host too!
Scenic and peaceful backyard space. Plenty of room for our dog to run and relax. Lawn is well maintained and the fence is in good condition. There are also chairs to lounge in while your dog takes a break from playing. The owner, Alicia, is also super nice and friendly. She has a bucket of toys for dogs to play with, offered to turn on the sprinkler on a hot day, or even the fire pit on a cooler day. We will definitely return! :)
Wonderful space that's very quiet, peaceful, and safe for an easily distracted and/or reactive pup to play and sniff around. Also super convenient from Boston. We'll be back!
Great spot! We will absolutely be back.
Smaller than expected. There was a hose for fresh water
We always have fun here and it’s so close to our new apartment!
Overall we had a nice time. The grass was fairly long, but we did book pretty last minute to be fair. The space is safe and secured, and my pup had a great time!
Fantastic spot as always! Some new toys that our dog loved to zoom with!
Its exactly as she describes. A small yard surrounded by a large open space. (No access to surrounding open space). Felt secure. Clean, neat. Some lawn chair seating. Quiet area. Some dog toys. Mostly a grassy yard. My dogs enjoyed it very much.
so great! we had a fabulous time. Goober ran himself out! the host was very kind and helpful, and the yard was lovely and very secure!
Space was OK, gate on right was sticky. Dog toys were old and grungy, didn't see any place to get water.
This spot is great! Nice yard, shade and green space. Very secure. Its really nice to be able to park in the driveway. We will be coming back!
Great quiet spot with some room to run around! We had fun practicing recalls and go-get-it. My dog did intently watch the neighbors, so keep that mind if yours is reactive to strangers. We were there in late afternoon on a weekday so we did hear and see several folks including kids. The fence is secure but on the shorter side; I followed my dog around and kept a vigilant eye on him because he's hopped 5 ft fences before to greet people. Overall it's probably a better spot for smaller dogs, but we still had a lovely time!
It doesn't get better than this! Perfect amount of space for my 40lb reactive dog to run around. There are some toys available, flowers to sniff, and chairs for humans to sit in. No water is provided but we brought our own. No dogs in sight, sound, or smell. My dog LOVED it and we can't wait to come back soon!!
We pretty much go to Alicia’s every week now—the yard is perfect, our dog loves to run around and play with the toys, and we have always felt at ease and secure that our reactive girl will have a stress-free time! Can’t recommend highly enough.
This was an excellent spot! Very clean and and tiny. The fence is very secure.
We had an amazing time and will definitely be back! Alicia is so nice and welcoming, and the yard is perfect. Our reactive dog had so much fun running around and exploring the yard (and the toys)!
This was our third visit and we had a blast again ! It is SO nice having a private, well-fenced Sniffspot nearby for my two energetic pups !
This was our third visit. It was lovely as always. My dog really appreciates having this space to play.
This was our first time using sniff spot. This location amazed us! My dog suffers from severe anxiety and thus is not friendly with other dogs. We have struggled to find a place where she can run and play without disruptance of another dog. The yard is of perfect size and fully fenced. We had a great time and will definitely be coming back!
The dogs had a blast!! It’s been so cold the last few days so they had a lot of pent up energy. Great location and nice midday stop for them to get some sprints in!
We had a fantastic time! It was so wonderful to see both dogs completely free of worry, running and prancing around! Hadn’t seen that in awhile. Both our dogs have been attacked in the past and are pretty reactive as a result. But they were SO HAPPY! I really can’t say enough about this wonderful woman (whom we met at the end of the visit) and her back yard. Will definitely come back—-again and again!
wonderful space to let my dog run around, she loved every minute of it! the fence is short in some areas so if you have an escape artist be aware of that. otherwise, yard was large and clean and was everything we needed! I will definitely be back.
An unassuming backyard for Newton, its easy ro find and my dog had a wonderful time. Major bonus points for the fact that the yard and parking is wheelchair acessible. You might need help with the gate, but it its vert secure. We had a great time and I think this will become one of our regular spots. We saw a distant neighbor Enjoying aome sunshine from his garage and we heard some chickens and a dog bark far off a couple times, but it wasnt anything major. Unless your dog is super reactive you wont have an issue.
Great, quiet place for doggo to run around. He loved it! feEasy parking and
This is an awesome spot ! It’s only a 6 minute walk from my place—so convenient. The backyard is spacious and well fenced, I felt very safe letting my dogs bounce around off leash. My dogs had an absolute blast ! Thank you, we will definitely come back !
Beautiful day, lovely yard, Nice touch to have some doggie toys Thank you
We’ve been back many times and loved it! Always a great time 😊
Great spot, second time here and will definitely be a frequent visitor!
First time using Sniff Spot and first time coming here! We loved it- Callie had so much fun bouncing and playing fetch in the snow. We will definitely be back since it’s super close and convenient for us!
Terrific, this was our second visit this week!!
Fabulous first-time visit here, but definitely not the last!! My Goldendoodle had a blast playing keep-away with tennis balls and Alicia's yard is a good size since I was chasing him half of the time to try and get the ball away from him. We went at 2PM and the yard was nice and sunny, I parked right on the street in front with no problem. Thank you, woof and we will see you again soon!
Great spot! I hope to go back here again.
The driveway was full when I got there (holiday, so totally understandable), but I was able to find safe street parking just around the corner. The area is fully-fenced with two gates, one on either side of the house. I was concerned that the owner might come out to say 'hi' and startle my sometimes-reactive dog, but they gave us our space and privacy. Only hiccups came from some noisy movers a couple doors down and a neighbor child that was running around in a nearby yard, but both instances gave me the opportunity to work on some of our reactivity training without too much drama. :) It was great for me to see my girl getting relaxed enough to run and play in a safe environment.
It was a great, fully fenced yard with a nice bucket of toys! My dog loved it and we had a blast. I'm sure I'll be back soon.
This location is awesome! A perfect place to run around w your pooch in a big city like Boston. We will definitely be back!
Great space! Grassy, fully fenced. Easy to access. We’ve been back several times now!
Amazing place!. my dog was exhausted after all the running and playing she was able to do.
Great place in the city!
Great large yard with a lot of space to play fetch! The owner was extremely nice and welcoming, and provided a water bowl and plenty of toys!
Had a great time! Host greeted us and then left us to play! Will definitely be back 😊
Everything was as lovely as promised! Large fenced-in space for a pup to run around. We also appreciated the chairs for the humans. Thank you again we really appreciate it!
We unfortunately did not get to make it to this spot due to a scheduling issue on our end, but we plan to rebook ASAP and Alicia was wonderful and responsive to questions! Can’t wait to visit sometime soon!
2nd time here, we love it!
The yard was exactly as pictured! Fully fenced and quiet it was a great place to run our greyhound around for an hour. Parking was easy and so was getting in and out. Would go back!
This was a great spot to let my two new greyhounds run around and play for a bit without the worry of other dogs at a dog park. The yard was clean, uncluttered, and grassy. Neighbor yards overlook on all sides, but all was quiet and peaceful. Host was lovely and stepped outside to greet us to say hello, but left us to it which was perfect.
Quiet backyard surrounded by other backyards (there was no one around when we were there). Dogs had a lovely time!
Great place, plenty of space for my two bigger dogs. Host is very friendly and overall it’s a very easy and comfortable back yard for my pups to use.
We had a great time! The yard is very open with plenty of space to play fetch. There were some neighbors outside that you could see, but they were far enough away that it didn't bother our dog. Our dog is very reactive but was relaxed the entire time we were there.
We loved the yard, it was very clean and quite.
We had a great time here! It is a perfect open space for playing tug and fetch.
The backyard was perfect for us! Coming from an apartment building in Boston, it was an easy 20 min drive out to the yard. It was exactly what our hyper dog needed to let loose and run around off leash as she can be reactive around other dogs. I will definitely be returning!
My dog loved it and she was exhausted when we got home. Everything I had wanted. She ran and played frisbee and catch. It was a wonderful hour. Also host was so lovely and kind.
I loved this yard for my under 20lb dogs. It was clean, safe, and there were toys. A couple cautions - 1. The fence is on the shorter side so climbers or jumpers may be able to escape. And 2. There’s a small shed up on blocks. There’s about a 6 inch gap under the shed. It’s blocked off on some sides but open in the back. A small dog might be interested in crawling under.
I loved this spot for my dogs! It was big enough for my 2, under 20lb dogs to run. It was clean, safe, and had toys for them to play with.
A few cautions for others - low fence so may not be great for a climber or jumper. There’s also a small shed securely up on blocks but elevated from the ground, maybe about 6 inches. If I had a hunter, especially a rodent hunter, I’d be nervous about them sneaking under.
