We had a wonderful late morning at Mocha’s play spot! Backyard is big and clean, with gorgeous tree in the middle that provides a lot of shade. Amanda is very sweet and hospitable- there are plenty of toys, pool with fresh water, comfortable seatings at the patio. The fence is tall and no holes in it. I heard Mocha barking inside once but my reactive dog didn’t notice it as it was so many new things to explore. We for sure will be back.
Amanda was the most excellent Sniffspot host I’ve ever had (I’ve tried several)! I was so impressed with and appreciated how much care she put into our visit. She laid out a ton of toys for us to play with, left out a box of treats, had doggie bags available, and filled up a water bowl along with the splash pool! It’s a gorgeous yard with a huge beautiful tree in the middle, who’s shade covers you from the sun nicely. My dog had a blast romping in the splash pool and stretching her long legs while running around. This yard even has a digging area for diggers! Will definitely be back.
Amanda’s beautiful backyard is the perfect playground for my pup and her playmate. We have been here 4 times now and our dogs love running around and playing with all of the toys. Even on the hottest days, there is so much shade. Our pups are completely spoiled coming here. Amanda always checks in and is a gracious host. We will be back next week!
Beautiful space, a good mix of sun and shade. Amanda was a great host, she greeted us from a distance and let me know where to find the side gate. The yard has lots of fun things for dogs: a dig box, plenty of plants and grass, and so many toys!! I have to agree with a previous reviewer that the blue lives matter flag may make some visitors uncomfortable. Overall though this was a fantastic space and Pinky had an amazing time running and sniffing!! The space is absolutely safe and tall fencing was perfectly secure!
We had the most wonderful visit and will be back soon! Lots of space and toys (that Amanda didn't mind if my super chewer destroyed, although she ended up being too busy exploring and sniffing to focus on the toys) and my dog was exhausted from having so much fun!
Thanks, Amanda, Mocha and family!
My pup had a great time running around and playing with the toys provided. It was very spacious and there was lots of shade. Would definitely come back again. Thank you Amanda!
Both of my dogs loved being able to run free in the yard. An added bonus was the small pool of water that they splashed in - helped to keep them cool since the outside temp was warming up. Amanda is a great host and provided the drinking water and doggy bags for our use.
I believe Hunter and Charlee will vote for a return visit soon. 🐶🐶
Great yard to play with your dog in - lots of toys ! The space is fully fenced and secure. The only thing is you could sometimes hear other humans and dogs from inside the house, so it may not be great if your dog is noise reactive ( ours is ).
The hostess was responsive, friendly and helpful. She offered me two foldable tables and a cooler for my dog’s birthday party. She had made a cute sign that had my dog’s name, a drawing of her, and happy birthday” written on it. The dogs had a blast and enjoyed running in circles around the yard. Fences and entry/exit gate are high and secure. I do want to mention that the front yard decor at this spot may be uncomfortable to some people of color or minority groups. There was a blue lives matter flag and a satirical “in this house…” yard sign.
Exactly as advertised! Was SO FUN to have room to run around with my dog. I used all the space to teach him a new trick and we were thrilled to be able to cool our paws in the splash pool. Was also fun to play with new toys and have a pleasant place to sit down when tired.
Great spot for my pup! He’s super dog reactive and I live in an apartment so him being able to play freely in a space is invaluable. Amanda and her family were super welcoming and friendly and made sure Brodie was comfortable and had everything he needed.
Amanda is an amazing host. Sky had everything she could’ve asked for including her absolute favorite , a pool w toys! 10/10 experience & we will definitely be back :)
Excellent host. Very responsive and accommodating! Backyard is spacious and has toys and water easily accessible. Lots of entertainment available and also patio furniture was available for both human and pup to rest. Def. recommend!
Amanda is very kind and accommodating! Our dog Kobe had an amazing time. She also provides water, a pool and toys. We have been twice already and will continue to come back!
Large grassy area that is well shaded. Bobby loved this spot! Plenty of dog toys to play with and the host is very nice. We will be back!
A terrific backyard for our puppy and his friend to run! We live in a condo with no backyard and Amanda's yard is the perfect size with a lot of dog-friendly toys (there's even a kiddie pool). Amanda is a fantastic, super host! She's thoughtful (e.g., will bring out towels if we use the pool, we didn't use it)! We are so thankful for Amanda's Sniffspot!
Loved Amanda’s Sniffspot. Fully fenced. Quiet. Easy parking. No dogs or people to worry about inserting of your dog is reactive. Loved it so much we went back 2 days later!
My dog had such a great experience at Amanda’s Sniffspot! Amanda is an amazing host and made sure we felt at home and had everything we needed. We will definitely be back!
The yard itself is very big and open. There is lots of space to run around. My dog loved hiding under the trampoline haha. There is also a doggy pool and water provided.
My dog Lucy and I loved our time here. She got to run around off leash, and I didn’t have to worry about other dogs being in sight or nearby. She loved laying in the kiddie pool to cool off too! Will definitely be returning.
We had a great time celebrating our dogs birthday at Amanda’s backyard. She was super helpful and accommodating, helping us with some things to close off areas where dogs could sneak off and sniff and was super nice with all our questions. The area is clean and big, super nice for dogs to run around and play.
Amanda and her place are sooo lovely. You won’t regret it!!
Perfect spot for my 🐶!
Great experience for my dogs, fenced all the way in and lots of toys to play with!
My dogs had a blast! There was plenty of space for them to have fun! They slept like babies after this visit.
I really recommend taking them to enjoy themselves and to explore without any interference of other people and/or dogs.
The place was exactly like in the pictures. Nice spacious backyard. My puppy had the time of her life. Amanda was very sweet and prompt. We will definitely book this space again.
Great place for my baby girl to play. We will be coming back again. Best spot we have been to
Cello and Marq thoroughly enjoyed their time here — especially Cello with that big soccer ball 😄. Amanda is an excellent host! She and her son even joined us in the yard. Will definitely book again soon!
Amanda was really responsive and finding her house was easy to find! Her backyard is big and grassy, I would come back ☺️
Amanda was a wonderful host. The yard was spacious, clean and green with a glorious tree shading the yard. Our pups had fun running around the tree and playing with the dog toys. They napped on the way home - a sign of fun! Thank you for providing a safe place for our boys!!
Amanda is a super lovely and gracious host! Really happy we came today. Also, we were late and she was very understanding and kind. Looking forward to coming back soon with extra furry friends!!
Amanda was a perfect host! She met us on arrival, gave us a quick tour of the spacious, fenced yard, and made us feel safe, welcome, and comfortable. Our dog LOVED it!
Amanda's yard is very nice and spacious, especially for San Jose. She was very curteous and always made sure we were comfortable. Our border collie mix had a blast trying to "herd" her kids (who were also courteous and asked permission before stepping outside with our dog). An added bonus, Amanda taught my dog "spin". 10/10, Would recommend.
What a very nice large well kept yard with nice green grass my dogs loved running around and playing ball sniffing around the trampoline and swings. Amanda greeted us and was very accommodating to our needs and very gracious sending me home with chocolate dip strawberries and oranges from her tree. My pups crashed and went to bed as soon as we got home .. sign of a great time for them .will be back again for sure I definitely recommend coming here 2 thumbs up!!
the homeowner is very welcoming to their lovely oversized yard with plenty to interesting places to explore.
Amanda is a super host! She was so welcoming! Before our appointment, I mentioned that my dogs are reactive with other dogs and she sent her dog for a walk during our stay so our dogs played without worrying. Her backyard and home are beautiful, will come back for sure!
Awesome host with great, clean yard! can’t wait to go back again. Thanks for sharing your space!
We have a recently adopted Siberian Husky "Husko" that we are not sure about bringing to a dog park but really want to give him some off-leash time, and Amanda's backyard is perfect! Grass and trees and bushes, lots of places to smell around and run. Amanda is great to talk to and very helpful - awesome experience for us and Husko! We will visit often!
