55Great spot! Easy to find, clear signs for where to park and where the spot is on the property. Very clean, too! We had a great time and will be back!
55Dexter’s Bark Park is a fantastic sniff spot! We were impressed with the fencing around the large grassy field. The surrounding areas are vey clean and well maintained. At the entrance gate you will find lots of toys to play with, aplastic baggies dispenser, a trash can and a first aid kit. Also access to water. There are benches to sit on at several different locations in the field. Which is great because the views of the farm, the goats, horse in the next field, and mountains behind the farm are awesome! We will definitely be back to visit Dexter’s Bark Park again!
55Always a great stop. Lots of space, clean, and toys available if you forgot your own, and fresh water. Thank you Misspits for a great SniffSpot.
55 Reasonably priced, easy to find, clean, fenced in, farm animals fenced in other areas but did not pay any attention to us so our dogs did not even notice them. Pool for when its hot which I loved, plenty of water available for the dogs to drink, extra poop bags and garbage can available. We will definitely be returning.
55Perfect spot for the pups to have fun away from home 🐾
55We had so much fun today! Our dogs had no issues with the very friendly and calm livestock in the adjacent field. We loved the play house with wool to sniff and the space was fantastic! We will be back!
55We took 6 dogs and they all had a great time. So much to explore! Goats and sheep came out, toys and activities! They’re all worn out after an hour. Great option!!
55Amazing visit as always! We got to meet the big farm pig in the pasture next to this one this time and oh my goodness, what an absolute sweetheart! Dogs were tired for two days straight 🤣
55Visted with my friends two young full of energy rottie girls and they had a blast. The double secure gates were very much appreciated, huge tub of fresh clean water that the girls loved and the toys were a big hit. We booked for 2 hrs and it flew by, the girls had the best time. We will definitely be back. Thank you Melissa for providing such a safe, clean, secure and enriching place for all to enjoy
55Great as always! Every dog I bring here enjoys spending the time exploring and running and goes home happy and enriched.

Description

Welcome! We offer a 1 acre, fenced spot for your dog(s) to run, play, dog, sniff and bark! >> Please note! Perimeter fence was replaced and spot now includes additional space! There are more trees and brush included for your dogs sniffing pleasure. Please use caution, there are some new trip hazards and holes. We have walked this multiple times but things may continue to work their way out of the newly exposed earth. We think dogs will enjoy even more but be aware, it’s a little more wild than before! << Beautiful views and farm animal neighbors add to the fun. Shade, seating and a covered area make this spot fun for all! Long and short grass, slight hills, a sand pile and dirt to dig in too! We are a farm animal sanctuary and wildlife friendly. There may be long grass, insects, farm animal poo and other farmy stuff. Fun smell things such as feathers, wool, horse hair etc is added for dogs to sniff. All is cruelty free. Seasonal pond takes up the lower portion of the spot. It may grow and shrink throughout the season. Dogs love it! Ground will likely be soggy but we will close if entrance becomes unsafe. >>Pool is empty for the season<< During warm weather there is a 9’ stock tank pool (not filtered) for dogs. One person may accompany a dog but please no children. Private parking for one or two vehicles available. If additional needed, please message host. Clean porta potty available for guest use. This is also used by others, please keep dogs leashed in this area. This park is dedicated to Dexter, the King of Bork. He was a loud, happy guy that lived to bark! He inspired Misspits Rescue who has saved hundreds of dogs and other animals. All proceeds from this rental support Misspits and the animals in our care.

Cleanliness

Hazards

**currently we have a huge puddle please see pics and be aware there is a seasonal lake** Uneven ground, watch your step. One side borders 2 large pigs. They are friendly but watch anything poking through to them! One side borders a horse, friendly. Electric fence to horse is not on. Although not a hazard really, there may be old farm poo (horse/goat/sheep) it’s old and dry but dogs may find fun! *For very small dogs, please be cautious of eagles and hawks *Highway borders one side so there is road noise *during some seasons the grass is maintained by goats/sheep/horse (not during visits!) poop may be found *fireworks can sometimes be heard May-July I will try to message guests if they are happening *during hunting season, shots may be heard **DURING FLOOD SEASON (NOW) there may be a seasonal pond/huge puddle. See pictures!**

Enjoy this private area that you can let your dog off leash without having to worry about anyone interrupting your time with your dog. Picnic table with cover. Water dish, poop bags, waste bin, sticks and balls with a chuck it at entrance. Coordinate with a friend and meet here to let your dogs play together while you catch up.

A large cedar provides shade on half of the property while the other half is in the sunshine. This is a fun spot for dogs to exercise their legs and noses. Please check back for future upgrades.
