Crafty Canine is a terrific facility - clean, nicely equipped with agility equipment, shady areas, astro turf, seating for we humans. My focus was off-leash training and the size of the main area was perfect - large enough to separate but stay safe. We’ll be back!
Such an amazing sniff spot! Highly recommend!
Large space with turf, plenty of space with some shade from a pergola. There was water and bowls available, all fencing was secure, and the agility equipment was a fun bonus
Great place to take your dogs if you need somewhere quiet with no other dogs around. Don was super helpful. He showed me around and filled up the water bowls before we went in. I had to cancel once because of the rain and he was super understanding. My dogs had a great time sniffing in the dirt yard and generally running around in the turf yard. He offered us toys as well. My dogs are reactive to other dogs so they don’t get to run off leash normally and this was such a nice alternative for them. It was quiet with no one else around to stress them out. Also it was really secure, one of my dogs climbs fences but there was no way for him to get out. I will definitely be booking again!
I wouldn’t recommend to come here unless your dogs aren’t the type to bark while playing. The host should have mentioned a rule specifying excessive barking not allowed prior to the visit. There were also flower bushes near the entrance with tons of bees—my younger pup is deathly allergic so that was one thing that gave me anxiety while going in.
Honestly, my opinion about paying $20/hr for an area that offered little amenities, is no different than going to a regular dog park. Reviewers mentioned there were dog toys provided but unfortunately we weren’t offered some. Well, my fault for initially thinking that and I should have brought some toys regardless, because my dogs were extremely bored.
Every dog’s needs are different and while this Sniffspot didn’t meet my expectations, I hope that the host could provide better support and/or clarification in the near future for prospective visitors.
Don's spot is amazing! Very clean, well-kept and set up specifically for our canine family members! There is a separate yard where the dogs can go to the bathroom before going to the nice turf side of the property. I really love this because it helps the dogs to have so much to sniff and go faster and also keeps the play side of the yard even cleaner! There are plenty of space and shade covers. I could not be happier and can't wait to visit again!
In the pictures, there are sectioned-off areas that are all accessible through gated doors. The fencing is sturdy and these little areas made fetch a little more fun and challenging for the dogs which was a plus in my book! We could throw the ball in the wide open yard or throw them into these little sections and the dogs would have to figure out where the door was to get in and out. I like to keep things interesting if I can and Don's spot was perfect for that!
Incredibly clean. Water bowls filled, hose available if more water needed. Host greeted us and asked if we needed anything, and kindly provided a tug toy. We loved the agility jumps and weave. Two yards, one dirt, one turf. Spent most of our time in the turf yard but the dirt was nice for sniffs. We'll be back!
This is an amazing spot! Super clean, well fenced, and easy to find. Don was friendly and very accommodating. He took us in through another entrance while a class ended to help my reactive dog and offered toys once we were inside. This will definitely be a spot we return to. Thanks for everything!
Cool, clean and awesome place! We will definitely come back! Host was easy to communicate with. Overall experience was great!
Everything was very clean and it met my expectations
My dogs had a blast here! We were so impressed with the space - plenty of room for the dogs to run and play, agility course, and seated areas in the shade. Don the host is great, very friendly and even provided dog toys for my pups to play with during their time! We will definitely be back!
Don communicated with me throughout the whole process and was very accommodating! The space itself was very clean and didnt have any holes or gaps in the fencing. My dog had a blast and we’ll definitely be back :)
What an awesome spot! The turf play area is super clean and my dogs LOVED all the smells!
We will be back!
My dog LOVED this play area and Don was a great communicator when I arrived. We will definitely be coming and are so happy to find this little GEM in Poway!
