** 10/20/2022: The rain is coming soon! Your dog WILL get MUDDY - my yard has nowhere near as much grass as it used to. Feel free to spray your dog(s) off with the hose and/or use the towels provided. ** 8/26/2022: I just started offering memberships - please sign up if you're interested and we'll see how this goes. You can choose 2, 4, or 8 hours/month. ** 8/12/2022: I just updated my spot settings to allow a timeslot to be booked no more than 14 days into the future. (Although preferably within a few days/one week is best - my spot's day-to-day accessibility changes often!) So, if it looks like my spot is closed, it's not! It's just no longer showing availability so far into the future. ** Thank you for continuing to leave a review every time you visit and add photos - it helps a lot, and I LOVE seeing the photos of all the cute dogs enjoying the yard! I have quite a big yard for this area. It is fully enclosed by a 6' wooden fence. Between the yard and the patio the total area is roughly 3200 sq feet. I have a rockery that dogs love to run up and down, juniper bushes, a large covered and uncovered patio area, a kiddie pool in the hot weather, 2 water bowls (and a hose for replenishing the water/pool if needed), lots of tennis balls and toys, and a large perimeter to sniff! There is a bench, small table, and some Adirondack chairs in the backyard (and more chairs and a larger table up on the patio) for the humans... feel free to move them around as you wish! There is plenty of space to throw balls and toys; if you have mobility issues and cannot go down into the backyard, you can stay up on the patio and have your dog bring the ball back to you. Most dogs love to run up & down the rockery! Your dog(s) will be very tired and happy by the end of the Sniff! Side note: I do dog-sitting, dog walks, and drop-in visits through Rover, and I always love to meet new doggos if they are friendly! :) Thanks and enjoy the time with your dog(s)!!

Rockery- humans should be careful walking up & down the rockery steps. Will be some muddy areas when it has been raining. Occasional blackberry vines - I try my best to keep them at bay. Very small woodpile next to the house.

    Yard was a little muddy but the host let us know ahead of time so we were prepared, and the overall visit was wonderful and our dog loved it! Very private and safe and everything we needed.

  • Michelle R., Jan 27, 2023

    My two dogs had fun running around in the yard! It was muddy but host very nicely has lots of fresh towels for dirty paws, as well as clean water which they needed after all that running!

    What a wonderful experience!! We have a new rescue who’s a little shy, and having the ability to do this is fantastic!! Great, very secure yard for playing dogs and our pooch enjoyed the rockery. Very quiet, which is good for our nervous, new to the city dog. Plenty of great toys and clean towels, which is great for a Seattle winter. Will definitely book again. Thanks for giving Mr. Marlow a place to play!! ❤️ Definitely a life saver!!

    Securely fenced, nice flat area for play or fetch, and thoughtfully stocked with supplies and toys. Our dog spent her time sniffing a juniper bush but hey, she had a great time!

  • Ashley G., Jan 8, 2023

    Spacious yard with toys. It’s winter, so expect some mud but all in all, really enjoyed this Sniffspot!

  • Rose W., Jan 6, 2023

    It is a dog's world indeed! This is by far our favorite sniff spot in West Seattle. There's plenty of room to run around, tons of toys, nooks and crannies to sniff galore, and a hose with clean towels to spray the pup down on the paved patio before leaving. We will certainly be back, thank you again for letting us use your space!

  • Itamar Z., Jan 4, 2023

    We had great time The yard is well equipped with everything a dog could thing about Very recommended

  • Sarah D., Jan 2, 2023

    Such a perfect spot with everything your dog could want.

  • Jacob M., Dec 29, 2022

    Beautiful backyard! The little hill with boulders was great for my large breed dog to rock hop and zoom. We even saw a hummingbird. Thank you!

  • ROBERT R., Dec 20, 2022

    Pleasant cozy spot with lots of toys and water ready to go for your pups.

Meet your host

Hello! My house in West Seattle has a great dog yard; many dogs have enjoyed it throughout the decades. I dog-sit through Rover.com, so I usually have a dog here but will make sure the dog stays inside, and quiet, when there is a Sniffspot. I hope you enjoy the play time with your pup(s)!
