Description

Seasonal close in winter. We will reopen in Spring 2024. See you then! Welcome to Maxie pool for private water play time! First pet pool in the area. The pool solar is on automatically during the day time and the water temperature largely depends on the weather conditions. As the weather becomes cooler recently the water temperature decreases. For your reference, on October 28 the water temperature is around 65 degrees F/ 18 degrees C. Based on the dog owners' feedback, the water temperature in October is cold for people but dogs are still having fun. We don’t recommend people swimming in the pool in October. The pool is chlorinated and professionally cleaned weekly. We provide S/M/L size dog life jackets (1 jacket for each size) and some pool toys. 2 guests come free with the 1st dog. Any additional dog includes 1 additional guest at no extra charge. If you have extra guests coming, please select the correct number of additional guests in the EXTRAS. Extra guest is $12/person/hour for the play & swimming session. Total 6 guests max, thank you! POOL RULES (please read) *Please note this is a private swimming session for your pets, please supervise your dog at all times, NO coach/lifeguard on site. *The east side of the pool is up to 9 ft deep. Pet & humans swim at their own risk. Children under 10 years old are not allowed for safety reason. The host is not responsible for any liability. *Dog owner and guests are welcome to enter the pool to help and support your dog swimming, but please note NO BATHROOM is provided. As this is mainly the dog pool, dogs constantly bring oils/dust/dirt to the pool. We clean after each visit and the filter system is on but there is a limit to how much the filter system can handle. Generally, the water is clearer in weekdays compared to weekends. *This is a quiet neighborhood, please respect our neighbors so no screaming/yelling/loud music/pool parties. *Dogs must be leashed when entering and exiting the pool area, only off-leash your dog once the pool gate is locked. *The pool area is fenced. Please make sure the pool fence is locked at all times. *Please note there are plants, trees & flowers, and areas with mulch, rocks & stones in the backyard. Please watch out for your dogs' activities at all times. The host is not liable for any injuries or damages that could happen to dogs and pet owners. *Please bring your own towels.

    Thor had a ton of fun at Maxie Water Park for his birthday!! Although he refused to get in the water (he’s never been to a pool before) he sniffed around and found his fave spot under the beautiful tree and chewed his new toy branch. I appreciated the latched gate surrounding the pool & all the toys available for playing! We will definitely be back!

  • Courtney W., Oct 27, 2023

    Beautiful pool, lots of pool toys and life jackets. The host was super accommodating when we had to reschedule due to illness. I will add that the pool has about a 4 ft ledge above the pool on one side, just something to keep in mind for old or sight challenged doggies like mine but we had no problem. Will come back again.

  • K G., Oct 15, 2023

    Beautiful pool and surrounding area, great for running around and lots of swimming. Includes life jackets and toys, and drinking water for both people and pups. Extraordinarily clean, can't wait to go back. My dog enjoyed every minute! Thank you so much for sharing this spot with us.

  • Lauren P., Sep 26, 2023

    My first time using Sniffspot and it went incredibly well! The experience was "hostess" so I could focus on my pup in a new environment. Several different sizes of dog life vests available as well as toys, poop bags, trash bins, fresh water and a bowl, and brushes. Recommend to all!

  • Trang L., Sep 26, 2023

    It was great for my dog

  • Ariana D., Sep 26, 2023

    Once again we had an amazing time!!! Can’t wait for next time!!!

  • Julia B., Sep 24, 2023

    Very clean and perfect for relaxing by the pool and getting the doggos used to swimming. The stairs were a bit hard for our dogs to transition from standing to swimming but they still had a ton of fun and built a lot of confidence. The toys were a hit!

  • Elaine N., Sep 24, 2023

    My first time using any Sniffspot! The details provided to find and enter the property were clear. The gates made bringing my dogs in and out very secure. I was a little worried because I heard barking as soon as I entered the driveway but luckily nothing that came out. Everything was as pictured, clean pool and supplies out on a table. Highly recommend and will come back in the future.

  • Bridget H., Sep 24, 2023

    We had so much fun here. The pool is a great size and there’s also some space for the dogs to run and sniff outside of the pool. One thing I would warn against is the hot tub that’s elevated from the pool which could be a hazard if you’re not fully watching your dog. Unfortunately our pup is still warming up to bodies of water, but we loved this Sniffspot to give him some space to become more comfortable

  • Callie O., Sep 20, 2023

    The best swimmy afternoon for my girl!!!! Waters, treats, and toys were all an added bonus!
