    I was there was a way to note that this Sniffspot is definitely more than 5 stars. Really nice, big yard. Lots of room for my large breed German Shepherd dog to run around and play ball. The grass is really well maintained too so she had nice good traction as she was running around the yard. There is an special area behind a small wooden fence that was designated for dogs to dig. Elli is not much of a digger so we didn't use that area, but it was nice and clearly other dogs have made use of the digging area. The host also provided us with a sanitized water bowl, along with a clean (and folded) towel, and hand sanitizer. There is a water hose as well, which was really nice and thoughtful. There is also a labeled bin for disposing of the poop, which really came in handy for us (Elli always poops when she gets really excited and plays ball for a prolonged period of time). This Sniffspot is super easy to find and easy to park, and the host was quick to respond to my messages. Elli and I had a really good time here. We will definitely be back again soon.

    We tried Marie's place for a playdate. The dogs absolutely loved it and had a great time. The place is calm and nicely located in Almaden. The dogs wandered off curiously picking up smells they liked. There is ample space for throw and fetch and allows the dogs to run around. Thanks to Marie, who had placed hand sanitizers and towels for clean up. Clean bowl w/ fresh water was frequently enjoyed by the dogs as they took breaks in between. Guests can relax in comfortable chairs as they watch their dogs play around :) Seems like a great place to host your dogs' birthday parties as well! Definitely would try the place again in future ...

    Great backyard with a big backyard for my dog to really hit his full stride. Dig zone is bigger then expected as well!

  • Amy P., Feb 13, 2024

    This is a great Snifspot. It was a lot of fun for my pups who had a lot of yard with green grass to run and play. They enjoyed the dig zone as well. Very relaxing for us to sit and enjoy the space. We plan a return visit already!!!

  • Anne R., Feb 11, 2024

    This place is WONDERFUL! It’s a very spacious yard and my dog sprinted from one end to the other with the Chuck It. My dog was so happy! The space is very clean and well maintained. Marie is an excellent and considerate host, leaving outside a garbage bin for poop, and sanitized water bowls. Highly recommend this SniffSpot; I’ll be a regular here.

  • Tabitha D., Feb 11, 2024

    Fabulous spot to run around and play fetch! Host provides wonderful fruit from her trees which we appreciate!

  • Mutt L., Feb 10, 2024

    Absolutely love Marie’s backyard space. My German shepherd was able to run and fetch and get all of her energy out. The dog bowls and towels were so thoughtful and such a bonus! We are going back tomorrow because we love it so much!

  • Desiree T., Feb 4, 2024

    Loved all the open clear space to run with my dog! Backyard is very clean and well taken care of. Plenty of seating options and a nice big tree with shade to sit under. Definitely coming back!

  • Tabitha D., Feb 3, 2024

    This was an amazing spot for our golden! Everything was well maintained and the host provided us with wonderful amenities! We will be back again!

  • Laura H., Feb 3, 2024

    This is a beautiful spot! My doggo enjoyed zooming around, laying on the grass and there were plenty of great smells that kept him busy! This spot is always wonderfully neat and clean. We will be back!

Hi- My back garden area is mostly unused and very quiet and peaceful. No other dogs, no children. There is plenty of space to run and have fun for your dogs. Also a perfect spot for training. There is also seating areas for humans. :-) There are also very few other dogs in neighboring homes to cause a distraction. At a suggestion of a friend and dog trainer, I decided to list the space for a little extra revenue.
