Cool and shady, what a relaxing environment! The dogs loved the room to just run and play. My Houdini dog checked out the full fence line for gaps and had no luck! My other pup chased her ball and I just got some peaceful time in a lovely yard to read and play with the girls off leash. Lovely! I highly recommend Cindy’s oasis.

This was our first ever SniffSpot. Great space with lots of toys, water, chairs, and a nice high fence! My dog gets so few opportunities to be off-leash and this is a great addition to the neighborhood.

My golden retriever and I had a great time here! Very private as the fence is tall and secure, and plenty of shade from trees to keep cool. Would definitely visit again.

Our pup had so much fun! We brought a lot of our own toys, but he was very interested in the squeaky balls she had in the yard already. Host had bug spray, poop bags and water for the pup. Very nice!

Great yard and location! The yard has lots of shade which is definitely a must during the hot NC summer - we will definitely be back!

Shady, clean, and safe! We were a group of 6 with three goldens and this was just the right size. That is, we could easily keep an eye on the dogs while playing. There was plenty of fresh water available and places to sit.

Erika took the time to ensure our visit was nothing short of our expectations! The spot was clean, well secured, and spacious.

My dogs had a lot of fun chasing each other and playing with the abundance of sticks. I love finding sniff spots like this one. They feel more natural with trees and wood stumps to jump over making it more enriching for the dogs.

Erika’s yard was perfect! It was easy to find, completely fenced in, so I felt very safe letting my dogs roam, and it was super engaging for them! They loved running all over sniffing and exploring- the hosts were very nice and very quick to communicate about any questions I had! We would love to come visit again!

There is a dog indoors that barked a few times but my dog didn't care and had a blast running around this spacious yard and playing with the toys available

Maya had a great time here. Even though we had some sprinkles, she was able to get her running out. Plenty of places for her to sniff and play. Will definitely go again.

What a great Sniffspot! Raleigh had lots of fun! Plenty of room to stretch out his legs- and a bonus- he got to meet the hosts dogs!

This is a great Sniffspot! Large yard with plenty of room for running, playing fetch and frisbee. Tyson and Lilly had a great morning and made good use out of every inch of space in the yard.

Beautiful yard for Maya to play in. She was able to get a good run in while chasing her ball and her frisbee. Fence is secure, yard is well maintained and table/chairs are offered for humans. Would definitely go back! Thanks for offering your yard!
