It’s named in memory of our dog Max, who passed away from cancer. He loved this area so much. So, we decided to share with other dogs, who don’t have the luxury of running and sniffing and being a dog. Big pond in the back is drained do to a sand vain.
We have 5 acres north of Homer Lake. It is 15 minutes from Urbana. The yard is not fenced but it is amazing to go off leash and let the dogs run.
Are you ready to get away from the hustle and bustle of the day to day? Then check out Hill Top Farms for a little slice of paradise. This farm sits on 75 acres of beautiful country farm land and includes a large pond as well. The scenic views of trees, water and horses will help you and your pet enjoy a much needed break. See you at the Hill!
Hello! Welcome to K8’s Mo’Tail! Where we offer a “island” to you and your pups! The island is completely surrounded by water and the only entrance on to the island is through a double door covered bridge! We do have goats and ducks but they usually keep to themselves! I have 2 50ft leads available to be used but you must provide your own dog life jacket if you want them to wear one!
Enjoy a fully fenced (mesh livestock style fencing, small enough to keep in little dogs) run through mowed grass, two short wooded trails and access to a large pond with dock. Dogs are welcome to swim—bring towels and be prepared for some mud if it’s been raining or you have a pond monster doggy. Woods have wonderful smells, my dogs sometimes find delightful things to roll in. A hose is available for use on warm days and there is a nearby Tractor Supply if your pup needs a spa treatment after their romp. We do have chickens on site and ask you not allow your dog to harass them as you enter and leave (chickens are in a separate fenced area and in a coop/run). My dogs will be in the house—some barking may happen on your arrival but they will not be loose. Wildlife may be encountered (deer, squirrels, crawfish, muskrats, many birds and snapping turtles). **Note: I didn’t want to claim the site as accessible as it is grass and some uneven ground, but feel free to reach out if you need an accommodation to access the spot and we can discuss what is possible** We welcome all.
(PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY) *we may have limited availability until the end of hunting season.* THIS IS AN ACTIVE FARM. YOU MAY SEE FARM EQUIPMENT NEAR THE BARN, ETC. Come enjoy our little paradise! Sugar Creek runs through the back of our property. You are welcome to enjoy it, just be careful while walking the trails. We do have chickens and turkeys on the front of the property. PLEASE leash your dogs until you are on the trail. It’s also very important to leave on time and not show up early. We have multiple guests a day and we need to let our dogs out as well during the day. If you do arrive early, please sit on the 1/4 mile driveway until your allotted time. If you are late, just send us a message if you would like to stay after your scheduled time to make up for being late. We may be out with our dogs doing chores in between guests. We want to continue to host for SniffSpot but we are having issues with people going over allotted time, allowing their dogs to chase our animals, and wandering around spots that are not for guests. All we ask is that guests are respectful of our animals and our property. Our house is not part of the SniffSpot. Please do not bring your dogs up to the front of our house. Our dogs are inside and will see you & start barking. There’s plenty of land to explore!
Our fenced in dog space is truly a treasure. Large oak trees shade a third of the space offering coverage from the sun for you an your pups. A tree swing and lounge chairs are provided for you to relax and enjoy nature as your dog enjoys the yard space. The area runs next to pasture for our horses, available for viewing and petting. There is a pond and creek on property outside of the fenced space that add to the scenic view. A basket of various dog toys and water bowl will be provided along with a raised dog bed if your pup needs a break during your visit.
Just some extra land we don’t use for you and your pet to enjoy.
