Pawsitively Yours - 5 Acre Private Dog Park In Afton

Hi! 👋 welcome to our spot! Just want to disclaim that we are brand new to this and are trying to navigate what people want most out of a great Sniffspot ☺️ We are making improvements to our spot every day based on guest feedback and making plans for the future as well! We hope you’ll come check us out! Our land is partially wooded, with open spots to run. There is a short roundabout path but the woods you can walk through too (I take my dogs through the woods you just might want to wear tear-resistant clothes). We are working on creating more designated paths now that we’ve seen some interest! **Concerning the cleanliness percentage**: This percentage was brought down due to one review so I want to explain: We have wildlife come through a LOT, coyotes especially, so there might randomly be bones and things to be aware of, and a fair share deer poop! We try to let the wild be wild because we love our wildlife and want a nice spot for them too. Otherwise there is lots of good sniffing and running to do. There is some burdock we are working on eliminating slowly (we do not use chemicals). No other real hazards you wouldn’t find on a normal wilderness hike. We do have some stuff by the house but not out on the actual land. **The property has a ‘fence’ so as you explore you can see where our property ends as you walk with no worry of going off our land, but it is not an appropriate fence for containing dogs that need it.**

What people say about dog fields around Saint Paul, Minnesota

We enjoyed our experience. It felt like a safe and calm space for our rescue pup, who is dealing with reactivity. We were at Angela’s in the afternoon and had no issues. There was space for our pup to run and the fence was tall enough for her. No visibility of other dogs or animals (besides normal squirrels). Unfortunately, we didn’t take pics! We would book again for our pup as it was closer to home :)

Sid is great with dogs! I have a dog that suffered a trauma and she’s aggressively scared of humans. Sid understands how to approach and win over scared doggies.She’s great! Not long after we arrived my dog was comfortable with Sid and her two nice doggos and they teared around the big yard together! It’s a great yard for sniffers! We’ll be back often!

Sid's yard is great for a medium-sized dog to run. My dog Jin had a great time exploring the whole yard and loved playing fetch with one the squeaky toy balls already there. A little precarious in winter conditions in some spots (some small objects frozen into the snow, etc), but a large portion of the yard is a clear area for running and playing. The main street on one side can be busy with traffic and I saw one passing dog walker in my time there, but the yard was large enough that it was fairly easy to ignore. Off street parking is a major plus as well. We will be back to frolic in the snow, and I'm sure the warmer months will be even lovelier.

We had a great time at Sid's! The yard was great for running around and playing. There were lots of fun sights and sounds from wind chimes which my dog enjoyed watching and listening to. I was concerned about it being in a busier street, but we didn't see anyone walk by while we there, let alone any other dogs. We will be visiting again!

Huge backyard with a fun bucket of toys (my pup loved the bone) and a bunch of space to sniff around. You might be able to hear the owners pup but you won’t see it. Also parking that’s not on the street!!! The owner is very nice and has water and poop bags as well.

FAQ about our Saint Paul dog fields

Are dog fields safe?
If you are looking for an adventure, but also looking for safety, Sniffspot dog fields are a great option. While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, distracted dog owners, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks are much safer than public dog parks. With Sniffspot all bookings are private space for just you and doggy friends you bring with you and we require all dogs to be vaccinated (or have equivalent titers). Especially for training, privacy is ideal. Contrary to public dog parks, all Sniffspot locations are vetted and reviewed by guests so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog for off leash exercise or outdoor training. 93% of reviews on Sniffspot visits are 5 stars, while public dog parks often do not even have verified reviews. All payment is done securely online by credit card in a few simple clicks.

How do I know if a dog field works for my dog?
All park rental information is available online. Start by filtering parks by fencing, size and distractions, to find a private spot that works for your dog. If your dog has poor recall, you can visit one of our secure fields. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our dog fields where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby. You can review the details of the listing to make sure it works as your desired activity space, for example, safe dog exercise, dog training, a stress-free adventure with your furry friend or even a puppy event. You can even check the park amenities chart for amenities such as indoor training facilities, agility field, synthetic turf, exercise balls or field parking availability in advance. If inclement weather is an issue or poor field conditions, you can reschedule your visit up to 2 hours in advance.
What are the requirements to bring my dog to a Sniffspot dog field?
We require that all four-legged friends have basic vaccinations or equivalent titers. We do not allow dogs with a bite history. We require that guests sign our waiver and agree to follow our safety rules. Make sure to check host rules before visiting to ensure, for instance, that you are following allowable sports activities rules and any special events rules.
Will there be other dogs at the Sniffspot field at the same time as me?
No. Facility rentals are for private play time and any host dogs are required to be kept away from the area during visits, so this is perfect for a private adventure for you and your doggie friends, and perhaps a human friend. Hosts understand that many guests have dogs in training and are nervous owners. So when you book a Sniffspot dog field you have the entire private spot to yourself. We also enforce 30 min time buffers between time slots so you will not run into other guest dogs or a previous person when coming or leaving in the field parking area. Some hosts may have multiple fields, but there is always a buffer between fields.
