Hound Hill Rustic 1 Acre Fenced Private Dog Park in West Avon

Hound Hill is a fully fenced one acre wooded doggy paradise. We have our own pack of four dogs and created this space for them. They use the large yard daily but will always be secured inside the house for the entirety of your visit. Hound hill is an unimproved wooded area, but we have cleared brush, leaves and sticks for easier walking and playing with your dog. Our fence is mesh critter fence which is wildlife friendly for the deer, bears, bobcats and other animals that travel through our property. If you are looking for a large space for fetch or just to let your dog explore then this is the place! Please note that the dog park is on a hill and there are no paved or flat areas within the park. It is recommended that you wear good shoes with traction and are comfortable walking through an unimproved wooded area. There are rocks, sticks, leaves and uneven terrain. If you have physical limitations this park may be very difficult for you to use. When you arrive please take time to walk the fence line with your dog on leash first to ensure the fence is intact. Due to the nature of critter fencing and the abundance of wildlife, we have had occasional breaks caused by deer and bear as well as branches that have fallen. If you spot any issue please message the host and they will immediately address the issue. We love this fence because it does not entangle the wild animals and is very easy to repair. This means we have to inspect it often, and we do, but for the safety of all we encourage each doggie chaperone to do their own visual inspection before allowing dogs free rein. We do treat the area with cedar oil for ticks. We do not use any herbicides or pesticides or fertilizer. Please pull all the way into the drive and park in the gravel spot to the left of the garage. There is marked parking for one vehicle. If you have additional vehicles please park the second vehicle in the culdesac and walk in. Do not block the garage doors. Enter and exit through the gate directly in front of the parking spot. Please do not use the gate on the other side of the lot for any reason. Please do not use the smaller fenced area directly off the back of the house. Please pick up after your dog. Removal of dog waste is imperative in order for us to continue to offer this spot. Thank you so much for visiting, I love seeing our clients and their dogs enjoy themselves so much while playing freely!

I can’t say enough good things about this place! I have two big reactive dogs, and unfortunately a small backyard, and to have this kind of opportunity to let them run in a safe fenced in space is just priceless. Thank you Elizabeth for providing this wonderful space❤️

Love the spot! The dogs love the lil water, the lovely hills and we loved all the shade! Lovely and clean!

Beautiful, peaceful spot for a walk. We saw turkeys when we first arrived and cows on the hill on the neighboring property, but otherwise didn’t see anyone. Dogs loved sniffing around outside the barn once inside the gate. Appreciate the provision of chairs in a shady spot on a hot afternoon!

Beautiful spot! I thought my dogs had found a way out of the fence when they went down to the creek but rest assured, it was inside the fence and there’s even fencing over the pipe so they can’t go in there either. We’re from VA, visiting relatives in Candler, and it was wonderful to have such a big, quiet space where the dogs could run and play freely all to ourselves!

Absolutely gorgeous. My dog had the time of her life! If only I could post the videos of her running about!

My dogs absolutely love this spot! So much space for them to run around and perfect for reactive dogs like mine who find it difficult to get quality off leash exercise in Asheville.

Had a great time here. The field is nice and big with plenty of space to run around. There is some horse poop to watch out for and the ground is a little uneven for walking, but it’s a really nice quiet spot.

Great space with lots of room to run! Big hills to tie them out. My dogs did manage to get outside the fence somewhere near the creek but it's remote and I didn't have to worry about cars. They did come back after about 10 minutes of looking. Still a great place though.

This is a HUGE fenced field! It's right next to a cow pasture which for some might not be ideal but for me and my dog it was pretty neat! She's never seen an animal that big before. They didn't mind her initial barking and ignored her excited zoomies. This would be a great place to practice off leash recall with some distractions.

This spot was great for our two dogs - there was a good mixture of shade and sun and plenty of space for them to run. The land is on a bit of a hill so dogs can go out of sight but the fence is secure. There wasn’t a ton of water in the creek the day we went but I’m sure that depends on timing.

This is my second time at this spot and I will go back. The land is gorgeous and the dogs have a blast exploring. There are chairs, a hammock and bug spray (nice touch!), but no water so bring your own. The listing states grass will be long and it was pretty long…ideally the grass would be a bit shorter so the dogs can run a little easier but the host is clear about this on the listing and that is appreciated.

The space is huge with varying hills/flatness, great for exploring, there’s a little water hole that my dog loved with a hammock nearby for me!
