What people say about dog parks around Reading, Pennsylvania
This place is great! Lots of room to roam. Plenty of smells and sounds! Keep in mind it's a working farm and there is equipment in the yard. Thank you for letting us visit, we will be back.
Had a great time! Nice sized yard with a tall fence. Biggest open area is on a slight rolling hill. There are chickens right next to the fence, but they’re well contained. It was really nice being able to drive right into the enclosed area. Will definitely be back!
Happy Paws Farm was perfect for our energetic and curious girls! The instructions to enter were clear and the owner was friendly. The area was clean, there was tons of space for them to run free and sniff around the fence line. Will be back again!
Great place for our dog to run around! We took our shepherd mix there today (our first sniffspot experience) and really enjoyed it. The fence was secure, it was clean, and the area was a really good size for her to get some running in. She also was intrigued by the chickens she could see through the fence!
Wow! This was our first experience with Sniffspot! It did not disappoint! Gregory has an amazing space for my fur babies to run and play! Perfect size space, clean, quiet and Gregory is super nice! Couldn’t ask for anything better! Thank you again Gregory, I can’t wait to bring them back. They slept the ENTIRE way home… and they have never slept in the car!
It was our first time using Sniffspot and this place was perfect. Our very reactive dog got to explore and warm up to the environment at his own time. It was great!
This was my first experience with Sniff Post and with Happy Paws and I am so happy with it. The gentleman from Happy Paws was very patient with me. Since it was my first time I had a million questions and he answered them and explained everything to me. I have an 8 month old Mastishep with alot of energy and an elderly Irish Setter mix with not alot of energy and they both had a great time. We brought a soccer ball for the puppy and she had so much fun. The older dog even played! Happy Paws is a beautiful spot and it was perfect. It was big enough for the dogs to go exploring but we were able to see them at all times. The spot was very clean also. I would recommend this place to anyone with dogs that need to burn some energy or just walk around and take in new scents. We will definitely be going back.
We took our mini Aussie and Pomsky and they absolutely loved it! Great property all together! I can't post a video but these are pictures of the pups when they were taking a cool down break.
This spot is great! There’s a nice hill and plenty of things to sniff around. There are chickens just over the fence but they didn’t seem too bothered by my dogs’ interest in them. Super convenient to the interstate. We will return!

Our very first Sniffspot visit. Super convenient, good signage, perfect host! The dogs really enjoyed being off leash and free after such a long ride.
My lab Pooh was exhausted when we left. Will definitely be going again. Nice fenced in area for her to run and play.
We have two young coonhound pups (1 and 2 years old) who love trips to new places to sniff and explore. We are so happy we gave this spot a try and will definitely be coming back! It is secure and beautiful. The dogs wore themselves out sniffing, running, and enjoying the afternoon. It was even a great opportunity for us to brush up on recall and basic obedience, while in a new exciting place. Our dogs thoroughly enjoyed it and could have stayed longer! They give it 4 paws up!
Will be returning this place is great! Very nice people, very clean area and was very peaceful even though our dog was more interested in the chickens than running around. Will bring his ball next time.
My dog had fun sniffing and exploring this clean place. The host brought out water when we arrived. It was pretty hot, but the barn provided shade for us.
Very clean place, convenient entrance/exit. The owner welcomed us and brought water for the dogs. They had a lot of fun!
Perfect stop for our two pups right off the highway! They had a blast and are fast asleep in the car
Wonderful venue, we had a total of 5 dogs
Plenty of room to run and play safely. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks for a great time.
Nice spot to bring your dogs. Nice fenced in area, lots of toys our dogs (and we) had fun! Water, waste baggies, bug spray, and water bottles for humans to buy! We will definitely be back with our babies!
It’s clean nice place it’s relaxing to let your dogs be able to be free and not have to worry about anything
This is the perfect spot to take your dog to run off some energy. The fencing was secure, there were a ton of balls and frisbees for added entertainment!!
What other types of private dog parks are available?
Dog water parks
Many hosts have added water features like pools and/or are nearby lakes or rivers.
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.
Are 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 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 guests so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog. 0% of reviews on Sniffspot visits in the Reading area are 5 stars.
How do I know if a dog park works for my dog?

If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our 34 off leash areas where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby. 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.
