This spot really is a perfect size! Our Jack Russell Terrier loved running around the yard and was very stimulated by all the flower pots and different terrain (grass, dirt, rocks, and pavers) to sniff. There's many places to sit and the fence is very secure and tall. We loved it and will be back!!

My 6 month old Labrador/cocker spaniel pup enjoyed his play session here! The yard is the perfect size for a small dog. This was our first time using SniffSpot.  The app itself was a little glitchy, as I had some trouble messaging the host, but it all worked out in the end. The hosts were very friendly. Thank you for letting us borrow your yard!

How do I know if a small dog park works for my dog?
Start by applying basic filters, such as fencing and distractions, to find a dog park that works for your furry friends.

We also recommend reading reviews to check for park maintenance issues and reaching out to the host with any questions. And lastly, of course, check park hours. Many of our parks are open from dawn until dusk.
