If you would like to share the spot with friends, please select the correct number of additional adults in the EXTRAS. The maximum number of adults at our spot is 8. The maximum number of cars is 1 at this time. Please let me know and I'll clear driveway for the day. Great for large dogs and sectioned for smaller pups too! We currently have no dogs or other pets, nor children. This is our private home. The space is open most of the day between 830am-6pm (Daylight hours). Parking available in the driveway with easy entry into the back garden area. Digging is ok in the small fenced area to the right and water is available. Plenty of seating for humans.

Blossom Hill Farm- closed for the season for updates! ???

Welcome to our little farm! We are currently closed for the season; we're hoping to do some big projects in our garden, and therefore need to minimize foot and paw traffic 😔 I've scheduled to reopen in April, 2024. Check this page because we've got some exciting plans in store! ❣️ Your dog will love the large backyard with the hill that's perfect for loping up and down and sniffing all the exciting smells that come with country living- so many gophers, birds, and even deer make their appearance from time to time. We have goats, chickens and ducks in the pasture that backs up to the fenced yard, so your dog will get a lot of new experiences. You can relax on our deck listening to the fountain while your dog explores. I recommend this space for large dogs as there are some gaps in one of our gates; our Frenchie who crossed the rainbow bridge couldn't get through, but a more wily and writhe canine might be able to. We have a sweet and docile Great Pyrenees named Bosco who is not reactive, but if you prefer your dog to not have company, Bosco can hang out in the house or in his kennel. We're on a well, so we don't water the lawn in the summer to conserve water, so it can get a little dusty, but we do keep things mowed and trimmed. Our garden and yard is a work in progress- I'm currently focusing on adding drought tolerant native plants to work with my favorite blooms. There will be small changes in our retreat every time you visit (at least, that's my goal 😂) We hope your dog loves our Sniffspot!

My Lola enjoyed this spot. I was a bit worried about the cow poo. Lola is a Lab and tends to eat everything but she wasn't phased by the poo. Huge lot, nice bark covered hill for fun climbing. Lola is ball obsessed so plenty of room to fetch. Great place to keep your pup safe during this virus. Will return the first week of January and bring another friend with us. Definitely will return. 🐾🐾

This was our first time visiting this spot, and it was a great experience all the way around! The space was nicely tended and large. My dogs had the best time, and we are going to make this a regular outing! Highly recommend!

My husky had a great time running around this huge sniffspot! The host, Kristie, was so friendly and met us in front of the gate and indicated where to park. There was plenty of fresh water and trees for shade. The area looks just like the pictures, partly flat lot and partly sloping, so good exercise for dogs (and people). Bring a chair if you'd like to sit during the visit, as well as waste bags. There was no trash can. I didn't see any dog waste, but there were numerous "piles" of some sort. My dog didn't pay any attention to them but watch where you step. I recommend this sniffspot!

Very nice fenced in area, so much space for our dogs to run off leash. It is chain link fence so we could see some people and animals but it was no problem for our dogs. They had so much fun we will be back.

Great open spot with an easy slope and flat areas. The owner is very welcoming and gave clear instructions. Neighbor dogs can be heard, but it didn’t bother my dogs. The fence was very secure.

Lovely spot. I will definitely add to our rotation! Lots of sniffing for the old dog, lots of running for the young one. Fully fenced. Can see chickens and a goat from the space, but my dogs aren’t a problem w other animals.

Great spot! My dog loves that he can run far and fast, unlike in our yard at home.

FAQ about our Pacific Grove 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.

You can also filter locations to avoid other domestic animals and people. We also recommend reading reviews and reaching out to the host with any questions.
