March 2023: We've limited hours while the snow melts because the yard is VERY wet! We'll open up more hours once things dry out a little bit. *NOTE! Sniffspot currently lists all prices in US dollars*. There are no taxes or fees. Welcome! Sniffspot is for private rentals. When you book a Sniffspot, you and your dog(s) are the only ones in the space (plus anyone you invite). Playdates and get togethers that you organize are welcome! Our Sniffspot has two areas: 1. The main Sniffspot is our backyard (attached to the house), which is about 1.5 acres of mostly open lawn... great for playing fetch or running at top speed! It is securely fenced with 5' fencing. In this area, you will find a gazebo seating area, dog toys, and (seasonally) agility equipment and a kiddie pool. In the winter there are plowed paths. **CLOSED UNTIL SPRING**2. A separate, fenced, 8 acre field is also available. The field has a large cleared section in the middle surrounded by walking paths. Note that the field passes close to two neighbouring properties **seeing and hearing the neighbour's dog on their nearby property IS possible**. The field is fully fenced with a 4 foot fence. All breeds are welcome. Reactive dogs welcome. VACCINES: All visiting dogs MUST be up to date on core vaccines (DHPP) or titer tested. DISCOUNTS: Dog walkers and those with lots of dogs - message me to chat about discounts. FOSTER DOGS: Foster dogs in rescue visit for free! Send me a message to find out how. THINKING ABOUT HOSTING? Send me a message, I'm happy to chat.

FAQ about our Ottawa dog parks

Are dog parks good for dogs?
It is important for dogs to have off leash exercise to sniff and run. But the free and open nature of public dog parks has drawbacks. There could be aggressive dogs, disease transmission and cleanliness issues. For this reason, many dog behaviorists discourage visiting public dog parks and recommend Sniffspot's private dog parks. Sniffspot private dog parks only allow one guest to book at a time and are not open to the public, which solves many of these issues.
Are dog parks safe?
While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks much safer than public dog parks. With Sniffspot all bookings are private for just you and dogs you bring with you and we require all dogs to be vaccinated (or have equivalent titers). All Sniffspot locations are vetted and reviewed by guests so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog.
How do I know if a dog park works for my dog?
You can filter Sniffspot dog parks by fencing and distractions. If your dog doesn't have good recall, you can visit one of our 4 fully fenced dog parks in the area.
