Maple Ridge Farms-100 Acre Woods

Our 100 acre farm has been in the family for over 30 years. We have put a lot of time and effort into the property. And we would love to share it with you and your fur family to. The trails are all very well maintained. You will likely see birds, deer and plenty of wildlife throughout the trials. We hope to see you out and about enjoying it just as much as we do with all of our animals. ****Notes It’s that time of the year again…Hunting Season for a little bit longer. PLEASE WEAR ORANGE(we have vest for you and your pets) Our spot is all in the woods we are not hunting but you never know with the surrounding areas. Happy WINTER❄️❄️ Please keep the weather in mind. All of our trails are in the woods. We HIGHLY recommend if the wind is above 15 mph to reschedule. (You can cancel and get your money back-we understand) We just don’t want you or your pet getting hurt if anything were to happen in the winter woods. One other thing. Don’t forget bring those Boots. All of our trails are usually dry. But if you do come after it rains/snows it could be a little muddy. Last but not least the Porter John is gone for the Winter. 🥶 Thank you for checking out our spot!! We look forward to meeting you and your furfriends. 🐕☺️ Maple Ridge Farms ❤️ **

Private Park at Black Sheep Heritage Farm

Welcome to our farm! We raise endangered heritage breed chickens and geese, produce farm fresh free range eggs and ship organic bare root plants globally! We have 2 acres which we don't currently use, but keep mowed. The street side is completely fenced with a 4 foot fence. All other sides are densely tree lined, except a gap at the east side of the property for water access to the clean seasonal stream. There is a large fire pit and groups of up to 10 humans and 6 dogs are welcome. Host's son is in college for animal behavior, has 3 years of experience working professionally with dogs, and 2 with farm animals. He is available to provide dog sitting if guest needs separately. To access the area, park at the detached garage and walk to a break in the fence to the southeast. As you move east past the entrance, you will be in the field. Please ensure dogs stay leashed until they are in the field.

Our fence is 4 foot tall and keeps both our energetic boys within its perimeters! Our yard boarders a densely wooded area. You cannot see any other homes through it. Maybe you’ll spot a deer in the yard or just outside of it. They’re not strangers to our dogs! Book with us today and you’ll definitely come back again! See you soon 🙂

FAQ about our Portage small dog parks

Are small 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 are 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 park users so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog. 93% of reviews on Sniffspot visits are 5 stars.

How do I know if a small dog park works for my dog?
Start by applying basic filters, such as fencing and distractions, to find a dog park that works for your furry friends. If your dog doesn't respond to owner commands, you can visit one of our enclosed dog park areas. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our small dog park sites where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby. You can see any park amenities provided, including a park bench, water for dogs or water features such as kiddie pool or water hose. If your dog loves water, you can go to a park with water features, but if they don't love water, you can avoid them. We also recommend reading reviews to check for park maintenance issues and reaching out to the host with any questions. And lastly, of course, check park hours. Many of our parks are open from dawn until dusk.
What are the requirements to bring my dog to a Sniffspot park?
We require that all dogs have basic vaccinations or equivalent titers. We do not allow dogs with a bite history. We require that owners sign our waiver and agree to follow our safety rules. We also require that pet owners follow safety protocols around water features.
Will there be other dogs at the Sniffspot park at the same time as me?
Sniffspot only allows one booking at a time and any host dogs are required to be kept away from the spot during visits. We also enforce 30 min time buffers between bookings.
How much do Sniffspot small dog parks cost?
Small dog parks in the Portage area range from $14.0 and $14.0. The least expensive small dog park is Dale's 68 Acre Unfenced Private Dog Park In Paw Paw.

Can I have an event or party at a small dog park?
If you are planning an amazing small dog park party, each Sniffspot park has their own rules regarding special events. Many parks allow doggie birthday parties, training, water parties and other event types. Event organizers need to be responsible for their guests and event organizers should coordinate with the host regarding their fun party. Make sure the park has amenities you need for your party, such as a park with lots of picnic tables with park benches.
