    A great safe space for my pupper. My dog, Amber, is a small dog and we don't get many opportunities to go to the park. I get nervous around other peoples' dogs so it felt great to have the whole place to ourselves. It was fun playing ball on their court and she loved sniffing around the fence. She's still a young puppy and we are still working on her obedience and recall, so knowing that they had a fully fenced yard made me comfortable letting her off leash. They also provide a bunch of amenities like toys, sticks, water bowls, and even had a Porta Potty. I am so happy with my visit and I will definitely be going back in the future.

    It was nice and the owners were fast responders and very kind. We forgot poop bags, but they had a pooper scooper and a little garbage and provided lots of toys and water. The only thing is that there is no grass to play on, but we still managed to play on the gravel.

    I was a little disappointed. I was expecting to at least be able to throw her Chukka ball. The backyard is a substantial size, but it is covered with a huge slab of (?) concrete. There is only a very small piece of grass in the yard. The rest is large gravel. The fencing is secure though. I guess if you just want to sit and let your dog sniff the yard, and stretch it’s an appropriate spot for you. First time using a Sniff Spot, hopefully get to experience something a little more usable. Thank you

    Host replied: Yes, we have a pickleball/basketball court in the back of our yard. Our yard is mostly gravel to cut down on mud, especially in rainy seasons. I hope the pictures on our site help show that. I hope you find the yard that works best for you and your puppy.

    My dogs had so much fun exploring this space. We played fetch on the tennis court which they loved. Be aware that there is some sharp gravel. Not a deal breaker, but my dogs did walk gingerly on it.

    My dog and I had a great time!

  • Mark K., Aug 6, 2023

    Very cute backyard- dogs had fun running and sniffing around!

    Host replied: Thank you for the review. We appreciate it. I'm glad you had a great time.

  • Rachel G., Aug 6, 2023

    I really like this spot. I will continue to use it as a safe place to train my dog. There’s at least two pairs of neighboring dogs. One pair on each side. They were quite loud, but they didn’t stick around long. If you have a dog who is a compulsive fence runner, know that in advance. The other dogs caused me no problem. I am very pleased to have a Sniffspot so close.

    Host replied: Yes, our neighbors dogs can be barky. They are sweet and do love to run the fence with any doggie friends wanting to race. I'm glad you found us and loved our spot being close by.

Hello I am Mookie, a Golden Doodle who loves to play ball and my Human is Grace. She got me this place with a long yard, perfect for playing with a chuck it! I begged for a pug and she let me have Frankie. We are happy to share our yards which have different areas for different Dog needs. Human needs can be taken care of too. We are starting out, but expect to make it a lot more fun as the weather improves. Frankie and I will not be coming out to visit your dogs, but once you leave we will enjoy learning about them on our scent hunt. We believe this will create a lot of interest and fun for us and for your special family members too. We now have a place for your humans to wash you when you leave the sniffspot area. It is currently set up with kiddie pool, shower head and hose, with lavender wipes as well. Hand sanitizer now available for humans to use. In the summer, there will be lots of water and hoses available for getting water and there will be bowls too! This is a place for fun , everything is not perfect yet, but the yard is a lot of fun for Frankie and also for me! We love to explore and sometimes we see deer here and other wild animals! Come VIsit us at Mookie's Magic Meadows for a Magically fun time! UPDATE: Storm damage has been repaired. All fences are secure. There is a shade canopy which will protect from the rain and some chairs to relax in. You may encounter holes because dogs love to dig in the soft turf and the hill of dirt, please let me know if you find some that I have not gotten filled between visits and I will fix that! The vehicle on the site is a Continental Rocket trailer that is going to be refurbished. I have been asked if someone lives in it and the answer is NO! It is not ready for that yet! With so many trees, there are piles of branches that were picked up after the storm that have not been burned yet. Debris will be disappearing as time permits. None of the debris is dangerous to your dogs, or you! PLEASE NOTE: If your ball or other toys go over the fence, they now belong to my neighbor! PLEASE You must not go over the fence to get them!! I have other balls and will be happy for you to use them while here, if they go over, I can deal with him later! Thank you for your consideration of my neighbors. Please take pictures of your beautiful happy dogs and share here! Let's make other dogs and humans know there is a safe place to play! Thank you and we look forward to making dogs happy so that they can live their best lives! Additional note. WE have two safe yards (Never booked at the same time) completely fenced. The entry is also securely fenced. Your action of closing the gate upon entry and exit keep all dogs safe. Thank you all for your consideration!
