Location

Seattle, Washington

Description

Our backyard is fully enclosed with a privacy fence; it's where we have a lot of fun with Annie, our German Shepherd. We have a hose for water, under the deck. We have a few chairs out there, and the deck is partially covered, so there's shade and shelter from rain. Toys can be found in the brown bin - feel free to use them! Please take care that your dog doesn't dig any holes, we appreciate it!

Cleanliness

94% of guests said this spot was as clean as expected during their visit.

Hazards

We have a handful of tulips, and some good-sized rhododendron and lilac trees. The flowers of all of these are toxic for dogs - fortunately they have quick blooming seasons. Hopefully not a problem but something you should be aware of.

    Easy to find, straight forward directions. Great spot for my medium and large dog. They had fun running up and down the rocky hill. Thank you to the hosts!

  • Nicole S., Feb 10, 2024

    great space for my super hyper dogs who had lots of room to place chase. Thank you for accepting our last minute reservation.

  • Kaitlynn R., Feb 7, 2024

    Spot was clean and had clear indications where to go. Loved that this spot was mostly quiet. We saw a few pedestrian walking the trail with their dogs but wasn’t for too long. The dogs enjoyed chasing up and down the hill.

  • Brian U., Jan 21, 2024

    Great yard for fetch!

  • Adrian F., Dec 17, 2023

    Perfect space for my two pups. Thanks!

  • Cheyanne C., Dec 17, 2023

    Just what we were looking for. I especially appreciate how easy they made finding the entry gate. Goblin especially loved the Jolly Ball toys and the agility equipment!

  • Nicole G., Dec 13, 2023

    It's a lovely spot that's quiet and well kept. Our dogs loved running in big loops around the yard, up the hill, down the rocks. We look forward to our next visit!

  • Anne G., Dec 8, 2023

    Oooooo

  • Kj H., Dec 6, 2023

    This is a gorgeous yard! The two-level structure is awesome as my dogs loved scrambling up and down the rock wall. I also love that you can play fetch across the top tier for a shorter distance, or from the top tier all the way along the lower level for a long throw. The toys were great, the water bowl and poop trash can were appreciated, and the peaceful location is so lovely. Great spot!

  • Delaney D., Dec 4, 2023

    It was nice that it was local, and there was room to run. The only obstacle was the giant boulders. My dog kept hitting himself on the boulders. He runs fast nonstop for the entire hour, I don’t think he noticed, but it made me cringe. Other than that if your dogs not psychotically chasing after a ball the entire time, it’s a great place!

We have a nice big yard here for our German Shepherd, and we'd like to get the opportunity to share it with others.

A world-class Pacific Northwest natural rainforest adventure awaits you and your best friends on 65-year-old trails, through 2 acres of trails, forest, and open areas for ball throwing. 8 or 9 terraces. Starting with your choice of 2 entrance paths on the far right and left over a bluff that winds around, to The Landing Pad, through other trails forming circles to run around on and play. At the very bottom, the trails lead to a creek, on the left. The property is partially fenced and has natural obstacles. It is bounded by a fence at the top, a fence on one L-shaped side, and a cliff to the creek on the other. The steep hill above the creek and dense brush provide a natural boundary, except for the most adventuresome dogs and their physically fit friends. Bring more than one dog, if possible, because they love to chase each other around the circles. This forest was clear-cut between 65 to 100 years ago and not replanted. So we replanted it with 600+ trees. The ground is wood chips, sand, and Pacific Northwest duff with 160ft tall Hemlock, Douglas Fir, Alder, Big Leaf Maple trees, ferns, and native bushes with views of a 20-acre privately owned forested wetland. We prepared it as a Sniffspot for dogs. The lower part that connects to the creek area is not fenced. Rarely seen are animals in the forest, occasional wild rabbits, moles, squirrels, mountain beavers, mice, raccoons, shrews, voles, and weasels. Many birds may be seen such as starlings, chickadees, woodpeckers, hawks, and American Bald Eagles. There are moles thus mole holes because it is a delightfully rugged private area so you must be careful where you step until you get used to the signs of moles and Mountain beaver underground trails crossing the paths. Especially along Secret Lane, Lover's Lane, and Hidden Lane. We spent 4+ years removing invasive bushes, cutting down dead trees, and creating places for you to pause, sit, and enjoy your dogs in this natural rainforest 1 mile from the South Sound. When you park you can close the entry gate at the top. Garbage is available on the way out under the Bigleaf Maple tree at the driveway in the large green bin marked "Garbage". The Southeast corner of this Sniffspot where the creek is down a steep embankment, also is part of the property, but descending the steep area is not advisable unless you are fit and feel capable of the climb down and up. We feel a lot of delight here. We welcome you to enjoy it! We continue to work with Mayor Jim Ferrell and his Code Compliance team on the problem regarding the trash strewn on the owner/developer's land comprising most of Lakota Creek Basin. The landowner has set the clean-up start date the week of February 19, 2024. 9The developer has a land plat proposal and variance before the city, so cleaning shows good intent even if it took 8 years.) Hope you can visit and enjoy it soon! 2 Starbucks less than 5 minutes away in either direction (bathrooms available there). Bigfoot Java is at 4627 SW 320th St. (no bathroom but open 24x7) Join us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=61556216197208 or search "Wonderlane World Famous Sniffspot" :-) P.S. If your dog is reactive and you want to, you may wish keep your pup leashed until you are safely at the top of the path. When departing, on either side of the trails, at the top you can pause to leash your dog if you wish. The Sniffspot trails do not interact with the house area.

*12/5/23* There is a LARGE amount of standing water (small lake) and puddles in the spot due to current flooding conditions. *fall/winter update* We have mud, please consider bringing a towel for your pup(s). During the month of October we host a pumpkin patch every weekend and must close the Sniffspot for everyone’s safety. If you are a member please contact us if you aren’t available during the week to use your time. Well socialized pups are always welcome at the patch. 🎃 We have various levels of flooding during the winter; the spot has is anticipated to have mud and large puddles. At times we may need to close the spot due to excessive flooding (no dry land!). Please reach out if you have questions about how much water is in the spot. Keep in mind we also have increased migratory waterfowl in the pasture adjacent. We have new neighbors at the west end of the pasture. Please be aware there may be construction during your visit, we apologize for any inconvenience. 1 acre of flat field in a beautiful setting. One large tree in the corner. Fully fenced approx 4.5’ with predator fencing (a very small dog may be able to get out). We have motion lights that come on at night, not super bright but makes the spot visible during early night winters. Boarded by two, large pastures, a private road with limited use and our barn. Occasionally during the wet months flocks of geese/ducks may land in the wetlands adjacent. We have goats and chickens but they are on the other side of the property and should not be seen/heard. We have a dog ‘Veles’ that will be on the other side of the property or in the house. There is a covered bench and trash can in the spot, fresh water is also available. An outdoor bathroom is available for use, see map. When using the bathroom please keep your pup in your car as it is near our goats and free range chickens. We look forward to hosting you and your pup! Please reach out if you have questions. -Jenn & Drew
