45It has very pretty grass and there’s lots of shade. The open park behind the yard made it special too. My dog loves kids so watches them play for a while My pretty girl also enjoyed the (bay) breeze. The seating wasn’t good by any means. There was only one seat that wasn’t under the patio. The patio space was small and I felt uncomfortable sitting there. Also has there’s a trampoline that takes up space in the patio area. I think they need more stuff for the dogs. There was one hard to find bowl of water. I didn’t see any kind of toy bucket. Etc. I’m comparing my experience to other sniff spots I’ve been to. I didn’t seem like much love was put into this spot. Just a backyard. We brought our own frisbees for picture reference.
55Our older pup was more interesting in sniffing about and watching some birds over all his toys we brought tp play with but he is an old man and it was still so nice to be able to let him explore freely. They kindly left out water and the yard was nicely kept. :)
55We had a great time! Easy to find, great location, and Sonia is SUPER responsive. We will be back verrrry soon :)
45It’s hard to find a ‘green’ grass area in San Diego where it’s safe for pups to off-leash play. This yard was very green, with sufficient room and fence-height for a rottweiler and husky to play. The adjacent park was not an issue; in fact, it provided an additional ‘sense of space’ (even though inaccessible) which is better for the pups than feeling closed-in. However, I would have given 5 stars but for the following two issues; (1) there were four (yes, four) separate piles of old dried-up poop in the yard (two were large) which we cleaned up ourselves (rather than step in them)… and (2) my dog stepped on a pig wad of gum in the yard, which ended up being embedded deep into her toes/hair/and such. Try having a rottwieler with a big wad of gum stuck ‘in’ in foot - then try getting it out. Yeah, not good. This could absolitrly be a five-star location, if the yard is regularly amd consistenly maintained.
55Sonia’s yard was fantastic and the family was so lovely and welcoming! Bear had the best time romping around and lounging in the shade. The yard was a great size and so clean. I didn’t have to worry about Bear getting into anything or messing anything up lol. I will definitely become a regular at Sonia’s :)
55Awesome space!! My dogs loved it. Only thing to be aware of is the kids in the adjacent park. My dogs are reactive so they barked quite a bit but the fencing is secure so it was all good. 10/10
55Decent sized yard, with lush green grass and plenty of shade to relax in while your dog plays! We don’t have any grass on our small patio, so my dog loved just relaxing outside on a warm day. We will definitely come back with a dog friend to encourage more play, but it was great to have a yard to hang out in for awhile.
55Nice spot. All grass. Dog water dishes, water hose, outdoor chair and shady trees. Lovely little children’s park next door. Fully fenced. Street parking available. I will definitely return with my doggy.

    Host replied: So sorry the yard wasn’t up to snuff this time around! The demand for the spot has been high this past week and a bummer that we haven’t been able to rely on pet owners to follow the rules of scooping their poops! But thanks for the detailed review Franke!

Welcome to your pup's private paradise! Our exclusive backyard dog park offers the ultimate retreat for your furry friend to play, romp, and socialize in a safe and controlled environment. With lush greenery, designated play areas, and secure fencing, your dog can enjoy off-leash freedom while you relax knowing they're in a secure space.

Book your spot today and treat your pup to the luxury they deserve! 1. **Supervision is Key**: Always supervise your dog while they are in the backyard, especially if they are on the hill. Keep an eye on their behavior to ensure their safety and well-being at all times. 2. **No Food Sharing**: Avoid bringing food into the backyard to prevent potential conflicts or food-related incidents. This helps maintain a peaceful environment for you and your dog to enjoy. 3. **Report Hazards Immediately**: If you notice any hazards in the backyard, such as sharp objects, toxic plants, or holes in the fence, please report them immediately. Your prompt action helps ensure a safe environment for all. 4. **Mind the Gate**: Always ensure that the gate is securely closed behind you to prevent your dog from escaping and ensure their security within the enclosed space. 5. **Know Your Dog's Limits**: Understand your dog's abilities and limitations, especially when it comes to navigating the hill. Take extra caution if your dog is not accustomed to steep terrain or has any physical limitations. 6. **Clean Up After Your Dog**: Always clean up after your dog by promptly disposing of their waste.
