55Gorgeous space. My pups had a blast exploring, sniffing and running about. One of our local faves for sure!
55We loved our first Sniffspot experience at Karinโ€™s! We have a very anxious German Shepard (trauma from his past life), and he cannot handle being approached by other dogs. We are on alert during every walk and canโ€™t go to dog parks. It was SO nice for all of us to get to relax, go off leash, and watch him get to explore and run around while we enjoyed the sunshine and our feet in the grass. The property was absolutely beautiful and serene.
55Such a special place for the dogs and us. ๐Ÿ˜œ. So much room to roam and it is also very clean, well kept and peaceful. Thank you for letting us use it!
55What a great spot! Spacious, beautiful and quiet yard with sun and shade areas to play in. Plenty of toys and sticks for my pup to choose from. A water bowl was provided and filled prior to our arrival. Weโ€™ll be back!
55Wonderful yard. Perfect for my 2 terriers to play ball. !!!! Super soft green grass. This is their favorite place to escape to from the City!!! Water hose for water. They are worn out after 1 hour ๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ’Ÿ
55Beautiful spot, great for the dog to run and play. Water available. Just a perfect spot.
55Host was communicative and friendly and the yard was beautiful! Our dog had a great time! Highly recommend.
55What an amazing Sniffspot! Well maintained property, neat and organized dog toys, water, etc., and so much for the dogs to explore! Howie and the wolf had a blast :)
55Best Sniffspot!
55We couldnโ€™t ask for more! Beautiful garden and tons of toys to play with - our dog was SO happy here and we enjoyed sitting out in the sunshine while she played. Thank you Karin!

Location

San Rafael, California

Description

Pups of all sizes enjoy this spot. Half acre property, fully fenced and gated, good privacy, lawn, pool, lounge chairs, small table and chairs, flower gardens, redwood trees, olive trees, persimmon trees, meditation garden, hummingbirds, and even a red fire hydrant. Optional pool access for people can be purchased as an Extra, by the hour and by the person. The pool is below 70 degrees right now. We love all dogs and welcome dogs of all shapes and sizes and hair types to visit; however we can only offer pool access for non-shedding pups, as long hair and fur was unfortunately causing damage to the pool equipment; If you are booking for more than one non-shedding dog swimming or for longer than an hour, please message us with info about your dog(s) and we will create an extra for you for the number of dogs you have swimming . Most visitors find the lawn size ample for running around and throwing a ball a bit, but if you are looking for a field to throw a tennis ball as far as you possibly can with a Chuck-it, the yard is not really the right size and shape for that, sorry! Hours right now are 7:30am to 7:30pm. We look forward to your visit!

Cleanliness

100% of guests said this spot was as clean as expected during their visit.

The pool is about 3 feet deep in the shallow end and about 8 feet deep in the deep end. The pool is uncovered. Please no dogs in the pool unless we have communicated and arranged this in advance. Thanks.

Welcome and enjoy! Please no smoking or alcohol. Please clean up and leave the area as you found it. Please double-bag your poos before placing in the trash can--this helps reduce odors in the trash can area (bags are available for your use.)

No more than 6 people visiting at a time. I'm sorry, we don't allow kids under 9 for liability reasons. Swimming for people can be booked as an Extra, by the person, by the hour. Swimming for non-shedding dogs can also be purchased as an extra. Please brush out your dog before coming if they are going in the pool. For the moment we are not taking bookings for dog swimming for shedding dogs, due to issues with dog hair in the pool equipment. Thanks and enjoy.
