Sami's Shangri-La In Lakewood

Our spot is named after our rescue chihuahua, Sami! (Formerly Claire's Oasis) I have a small fully fenced backyard, that will have everything you and your dog will need for a fun & relaxing visit. It's a private oasis for both dogs and humans. There's a good mix of sun and shade from the large mature trees and the patio umbrella. Our yard has many raised beds full of flowers and veggies along with a pollinator garden in the back part of the yard. We are a pesticide free/ organic yard, and I spray Wondercide cedar oil for flea and tick control once a month. Squirrels like to visit our yard, and your dog is welcome to chase them away if they're into that! 🐿️ For the dogs, we will have: a water bowl, waste bags, an elevated cooling dog bed, and a splash pad that connects to the hose available for you to use. You can also use our sprayer hose attachment if "spray me directly in the mouth" is more of your dog's vibe. (Just please turn the water off at the spigot when not using it) For the humans: There are two rattan seats available along with a 6 seater patio set with umbrella. I'll have bug spray, sunblock, hand sanitizer, snacks, and bottled water available. And two towels for drying off. Please feel free to use the bluetooth speaker on the table to play music! We do have a blackberry & raspberry bush in the back of the yard if you'd like to pick a berry treat for your dog. (but please don't pick anything else without asking me first). Please don't let your dog dig in the gardens or the yard, and please throw any garbage and bagged dog waste into the large black trash bin near the garage. There is a chimenea and wood pile available for you to use weather permitting. Used dog water bowls go through our dishwasher in-between guests and I try to keep my yard and the toys as clean as possible. I will be inside but available, if you need anything during your visit!

Clean, well-maintained backyard with plenty of leaves in one corner for our dog to romp around in! Towels and doggy bags were provided, which was kind, and there was a big tub of clean water for the dog. It was a pleasant place to sit and listen to the birds, and Maxx enjoyed himself immensely. Nancy was very communicative, which I deeply appreciate. We will definitely be coming to this Sniffspot again!

William (Brindle Retriever Mix) and Karla (Rhodesian Ridgeback-Shar Pei Mix) had a blast! They ran around chasing each other and played fetch the ball in the large yard. Plus, they had the space to play tug-of war, which is their favorite game. I had never seen William and Karla this happy. It was a pleasure to be able to use this Sniffspot.

The yard size was perfect for my dog to run and play. We liked the shaded area spot in the back. The location is perfect. It was easy to find and quickly access. We recommend for anyone who needs a fenced in yard or outside area for their dogs in a nice friendly neighborhood.

FAQ about our Parma dog parks

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.

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.
