Had a great time with the dogs. Will be back. Will be sure to spend at least two hours next time.
The dogs had a blast!
Our dogs always have an awesome time! Highly recommend this spot
I had a couple of questions and Tim was very responsive! Trails were super well maintained. Dogs had lots of fun!
Exactly as described and expected. My older dog did fine getting to the zoomer area and back.
Wonderful spot, our dog especially loved running the trails to and from club zoomies. I highly recommend this spot.
Wonderful woodland walk with a nice play field and picnic space at the end. Plenty to sniff and explore, peaceful countryside, and an overall lovely afternoon with the pup. Will definitely be back - hopefully often!
Black Pond Farm was so much fun! My dog enjoyed romping here. The signage is super helpful for us humans!
This was our first Sniffspot and we had a great experience! Our dog loved having a new place to explore off leash. You can tell the host really thought about what dogs and their humans might need while exploring their property.
We made a mistake when booking and ended up arriving and departing a half hour late. The host caught up with us when he recognized we were a half hour over our time and helped us realize the mistake. He was very kind and gracious about it, which we appreciated! Luckily, there was no one booked after us so our mistake didn’t affect another Sniffspot client.
My favorite Sniff Spot! The dogs absolutely love all the space to run. We had a fun time picking berries and letting the dogs snack on them while we wandered around this time.
We had a great time!
This spot is beyond a 5 star! Amazing piece of property. So many details around the pond and throughout trails- so stinkin beautiful!! We have reactive pups. We were greeted upon arrival by a herd of bunnies! Definitely need to be on long leash if your pup has poor recall. Later down the trail is a safety off leash area. When we reached the ending area we did off leash completely. Drinking water at trail end also.Our pups haven’t met a horse before so they rushed to the fence barking immediately.So we long leashed until he walked away. Appreciated all the bug spray along the trails. There are multiple areas unfenced but the woods are open & public. For reactives theres always a risk of meeting strangers but I felt it was unlikely . Wish we could have peeked at the farm bcz there was a huge goose patrol! This host is amazing!
We had a great time at Black Pond Farm! Lots of room to run, easy parking, clear signs, and lots of extra effort to make sure both two legged and four legged visitors had fun. We will definitely be back.
Great spot, lots of thoughtful, fun touches, well taken care of and presented very accurately! My dogs love coming here!
We really enjoyed this spot! Especially thankful for all the bug spray placed around the trail because, of course, we forgot ours. Very well maintained trails and plenty of places to sit. We only planned a short visit, but I’d love to come back for a longer visit and have a little picnic out here. We didn’t see any horses while we were here, but our dog appreciated the novel sniffs with the pasture nearby.
This was my first time at this Sniffspot and I will definitely be back. Incredible place. Great signage throughout and so much to explore. My only wish is that it was closer to home, but worth the road-trip!!
Seems like a lovely spot but wasn’t able to use it. Drove an hour to get there and there was another car parked in the sniffspot parking spot and dogs barking in the distance. Per the institutions, I left the pups safely in the car and messaged the host. After 30 minutes (with my dogs whining to get out and play), when I didn’t hear back from the host, I decided to leave and not risk my pups safety. I’m giving 3 stars (vs one) because the next day (after multiple messages by me), the host eventually returned my messages, and apologized by offering me a credit for $13. I appreciate the gesture but it is 1/2 of what I spent for a 2.5 hour drive and no sniffspot adventure for my 2 dogs. So, I likely won’t be returning…too far to travel for an unresponsive host if something goes wrong.
Awesome spot! My pup loved the trails and swimming in the pond. Will definitely be back!
It was a great size for my dogs to roam but still stay close. The grassy area was great for using the chuck-it and chasing tennis balls! Bonus, easy to find exactly where to park and great directive signs.
Our new favorite sniff spot!! Easy to find, plenty of parking, trails clearly marked, tons of room to roam, sniff, swim and run. Towels were helpful for preliminary wipe down but definitely a bath at home required. Bringing friends and going again in a few days. Outstanding place.
I loved all the shade! My dogs saw the horses. I think it was my puppies first time seeing them. They both didn't bark and listened to me when I said come. It was a fun place and will for sure come back even though it's forty minutes away from my house.
Such a beautiful tranquil space. My dog had a great time running and staring at the horses. The host Tim and Brenda are super helpful and quick to answer questions. We will definitely return!
Beautiful shady trails and we loved all the water bowls provided!
Such a fun spot!
We loved this space! The trails are peaceful and endless. Will definitely be back!
We had a wonderful time. So happy with the addition of the access to the upper pond. The dogs enjoyed it as well as racing around club Zoomies. A rather perfect visit.
Sheena had a great time in Club Zoomies and on the trails, and she was even pretty calm with the horse in the pasture.
The description and signage made it easy to find. We had a great stroll through the woods and would've stayed longer, but one of my dogs gets real tired in the heat quickly. Will for sure be back.
Wonderful spot! Very peaceful and well maintained. Lots of thoughtful details (towels, bug spray and water for dogs). We’ll definitely be back.
Great Sniffspot! Lots of space for the dogs to run & plenty of shade on a hot day.
We had a great time! I love that there was bug spray for us and water and towels available for our dogs. Thank you so much! Beautiful property!
Well kept fairly flat trails lead to a clearing to play or relax “club zoomies”. Probably not a great spot for anyone with no verbal control over their dog, but the boundaries are clear and easy to follow. We loved it. Spot is well equipped with water, poo bags, and seating.
What a dreamy spot!
So fun!! So much to explore and really kind hosts 💕
We will be back for sure
Incredible spot!! Benny loved hiking into the park. Very clear signage, lots of amenities (balls, hoses to squirt off dog, water bowls, bug spray, etc.).
We absolutely love this place! There's plenty of space for roaming and zoomies, and thoughtful touches (such as bug spray and bubbles) throughout.
Been here many times. The owners do an amazing job of taking care of the property and providing the best experience for all of us. This spot is especially great on hot days because the trail portion is completely wooded and stays nice and cool, which is really important for my dog who doesn't do great in the heat. I'll continue to visit Black Pond for as long as they continue to offer their property as a Sniffspot.
Excellent! Well taken care of and peaceful.
Our dogs loved getting to explore here!
We had so much fun! My two dogs loved romping in the pond and exploring the woods. Great signage too, easy to find and to know where the paths were…. Will return for sure!
Beautiful place with well marked entrance & trails. Abuts large public land area, so could easily have stayed more than 2 hours.
This place is awesome! Our dogs had so much fun walking the trails and zooming and wrestling at Club Zoomies.
Absolutely lovely! My dog had so much fun frolicking and exploring. Saw some animal scat (wolf?) in the middle of one of the trails further back which spooked me but other than that a perfect visit. Hosts have many thoughtful touches.
We had a very fun pawty today, thanks a lot!
Nice area to explore. Our dog didn't want to leave the pond on the way out. Very nice and thoughtful of the host to leave mosquito repellents here and there. We will be back
The dogs and I really love this place. You can get a really nice walk in and there’s so much for them to explore. Highest recommendations.
Difficult to find as our GPS system put us in the completely wrong spot. That said, it was very nice once we arrived! It was clean, we got to see some horses in the distance, and there was plenty of room for our dog to run and sniff to his heart’s content.
Delightful visit as always. Very peaceful, relaxing walk. Thanks Preston! ♥
It was our first time visiting this sniffspot- it was well-tended and our dogs really enjoyed the hiking trails!
A happy puppy say thanks!
Great Sniffspot! We loved the trails and there were abundant things to smell. Very well labeled as well.
Another visit to our favorite in the area!
Such a fun spot! We started by exploring the woods and visiting Club Zoomies. This spot is perfectly set up, with tables and chairs in key places so the humans can take a break too. We finished in the pond, and OH MY DOG—the pups had a blast running through the water. Our puppy even swam for the first time 😊. We’ll be back!
Another fantastic visit. The dogs and I love this place.
A great spot that has all the extras you could imagine! The signs made it very easy to navigate and we appreciated the bug spray! Suggest wearing boots and giving at least an hour for exploring!
As always everyone had a blast and felt good to get out in nature and timed it so we had zero rain!!
Another fantastic visit. One of our favorite spots.
Black Pond Farm was a stunning outing. Our pups had an excellent - and very tiring - hike through the forest and rivers. There was so much to explore.
Had a great time here! Lots of space to run around and sniff on the various trails. We’ll be back!
Great spot, beautifully maintained, with detailed instructions and signage.
The location was stunning with tons of different types of landscape for my dog to explore. We've been to a few different spots and this was definitely her favorite. There were lots of toys, a trash can, poop bags, pretty much everything a pet parent could want. The trails were well marked, and the instructions were clear, which is always helpful.
Delhi and Meryl had a blast. Such a beautiful place for the pups to explore!
Great Sniff Spot
My GSD and I had a great time
Very clean! Bleu had a blast
so charming and private! loved this spot
My friend and I took 3 Std. Schnauzers to this site on 5/31. What a wonderful treat! Beautiful entry into a park like setting and a Doggie Disneyland! Plenty of well kept trails leading to a large off leash area. Bonus was meeting the neighbor's horse! We will put Black Pond on our list of places to visit this summer. Delightful!
Nice secluded trails and an open field area that the owners provide balls and bubbles with a seating area. The owner also had a small campfire going at the entrance that had smores kits on one of the chairs. We will definitely be back.
Wonderful property for a nice private and secluded hike! We didn't encounter any other people or dogs as expected and got to explore the woods. I didn't let my dog off leash but we still loved it!
Fantastic spot for a rain day, lots of tree cover AND a fire going for s’mores!
Another great trip to Black Pond Farm!
Beautiful property, very quiet and serene
Excellent signage, really fun spot. My dogs ran wild it was perfect. My (Apple Maps) navigation did take me just past the spot but the signage fixed that problem!
Nice, secluded area for your dogs to play. Trail was a short and easy grade to an open space to play fetch with your pups. Will likely visit again.
Awesome nature trails and pathways. Club Zoomies was a great spot for lunch and fetch.
This was a perfect spot for our very scent oriented dog. He was non stop for our 1 1/2 hour visit. The combination of old growth forest and meadow, with a stream and pond thrown in, were dog heaven! We appreciated the setting, toys, and the mosquito repellant! Nice touches everywhere. The signage was the best we've seen.
Lovely property with hiking trails. Not strenuous for unseasoned hikers, but the trails go up/down hills and across a creek. There is a dry path over the creek if your dog will follow and not lead. The zoomie area is big enough to run around but maybe not for the chuck it runners. There were a handful of chairs about too. My pup found all the ponds/wet muck spots so bring a towel. Heard some people voices and saw a horse pup was alert to, but all in all pretty quiet. Fun area to explore! Thank you!
We had another great visit! Last time we came it was pouring rain and this time is was dry and sunny. Really appreciated the bug spray, because they were out today!
Excellent peaceful and private location, good access to national forest trails and cute spot to picnic with dogs as well.
My dogs absolutely loved this place. Truly, they just found pure joy around every corner. Would love to come back!
The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. I appreciated the signage and postings along the property to let you know where to go / not go. As a city gal, I totally passed up the street to turn on the first time. Oops!
The host is really communicative which is always great. I heard a dog bark one time (literally one bark) and I am pretty sure I heard a person say hello - but I called Virgil to me and kept moving.
Lots to smell, and is just like a trail except it’s private :)
We will definitely make the drive up again some time! Virgil had a blast. We were there about 90 minutes and easily could have spent another hour at least. There were tables and chairs throughout the sniffspot.
This was our first time ever using Sniffspot and we were so impressed! The property was so peaceful and perfectly maintained. My dog Milo thoroughly enjoyed every moment.
An amazing stop! Our dogs had a great time and our lab was so excited for the water. The trail was clearly labeled and it was easy to find our way back to parking. Definitely want to come back again!
Such a well-kept, beautiful space to explore trails and play with the pup. We had an awesome time! Everything was well explained. When we first got there and started walking to the Zoomie area 2 German Shepards ran towards us barking, but they were behind a fence, maybe being walked in the adjacent DNR land. Our dog isn't reactive but maybe for those who are, that would have been triggering. Something to keep in mind, there are parts of the property that back up against publicly used land. We would totally come back here any day!
Another fantastic visit. We love this place.
Haven’t been to black pond in ages. Dogs had a muddy good time!
Really pretty, appreciated how well marked it was and all the amenities.
What a beautiful and well maintained spot! Both pups really enjoyed it. We’ll be back!
This place is epic! It took us a bit longer to get there than expected but the drive was beautiful. We went on a sunny Easter Sunday and were met with Easter eggs filled with dog treats - so cute! Nice trail leading up to the open area, felt like we were on a hobbit adventure! Signs are everywhere which helped make the adventure more enjoyable. It was peaceful and just what our pups needed. The zoomie area is great with chairs, balls, water and bubbles! If your dog has recall issues wouldn’t recommend off leash since only partially fenced. Could hear dogs and gunshots in the distance but didn’t bother our reactive dogs much since they were busy exploring! Lovely getaway from city apartment life - Can’t wait to come back again - fun for humans and four leggeds!
Great little trail with a nice off leash area
Such a fun space to run around with the dogs!
Awesome and my Doggo loved the pond!!!!!!! Very spacious and it was fun for us humans also. :)
Great spot to hike. As others have said if your dog likes water at all be prepared with towels and maybe a bath when they get home. The dogs and people loved it.
We went on a perfect spring day! Sun shining and it smelled like fresh cut grass from a distance. We’ll be back for more sniffing!
Secluded spot out in Snohomish. Was surprised to hear a very loud dog barking multiple times and for a good period of time because in the listing it said no to if dogs were visible / audible. We also saw them on the way out but luckily we were able to keep our reactive dog distracted from them. There also seemed to be a possible controlled burn near by because we had ash raining down on us and could smell a fire. Free bug spray was a plus because there was a lot of mosquitos. Good spot if you live close by.
Great sniff spot. Beautiful woods and our pup zoomed around in club zoomies. We also practiced recall on the DNR trail. If your pup is an escape artist, beware that the area is not fully fenced.
One of our favorite spots! The campfire was a special treat as were the smore kits left by the thoughtful hosts
Always a wonderful visit. We enjoy exploring at "Club zoomies" and the walk up and back is always nice. There were gunshots in the area this time so we headed down to enjoy s'mores at the firepit instead of exploring more and it was the perfect spring day. Can't wait to visit again.
Great property with hiking trails, a grassy area, and thoughtful additions like tennis balls, throw toys, and even doggy bubbles. Horses on the property, but very easy to avoid if they'd trigger your pups.
Amazing property. We’ll taken care of. Loved every part of the hike.
This place is doggie HEAVEN, my pups had a blast! Every part of the property was cleaned and you can see how much thought was put in by the hosts. Each area is an adventure, my pups didn’t know which area to sniff first!
The trails are very easy to access and navigate, the signs made it so much easier to know which way you’re going. They also provided toys, insect repellent, chairs, etc. Me and my pups will definitely come back!!!
I was blown away by this place, it was absolutely breathtaking and so peaceful! We haven’t had many opportunities to explore wooded areas due to off leash dogs being around so this was perfect! It also provided a great space for us to do some clicker trainer and recall work. I can’t say enough great things about this place, I will definitely be booking again!
This spot was cool had a little bit of everything with a pond/trail/stream. The kids had fun eventhoughit was very wet. First half of the property isn't off leash and it's good to have some recall since it's not fully fenced. Even so the kids and dogs had a blast.
Probably my favorite Sniffspot that I’ve been to so far! So much room to walk around and the trails are perfect. I loved seeing the horse. My dog is pretty reactive but there is a fence. He had so much fun and we’ll be back soon!
One of the best Sniff Spots! Incredible hosts with great hospitality - will definitely be going back!
Great place to let the dogs romp. Lots of pond, stream, puddles, and mud to get dirty in!
We LUV this Sniffspot amd will be back again & again! Stopped and sat by the fire at the end, had a s’more while the dogs frolicked in the pond! Thank you for sharing your property!
Beautiful property with lots of trails to explore, creeks and open spaces too. We had a great time, thank you!
The pictures and description match the location. We had a great time. There was a some mud, which was 100% expected considering recent weather. It was great that they have a towel available to help clean paws before they get back in the car. 🐾
Beautiful my dog had a blast
Dogs had a great time. Our border collie was in sensory overload :-) Lots of trails to wander around….especially the neighboring DNR land. Everything is well marked and appreciate the water/bowl up near the pasture. Will be back again.
What a charming location ! Well marked which was reassuring as we hiked ! The dogs slept the rest of day so our mission was successful !
Wonderful place to visit with the pup. We had lots of fun, and the place was nice and clean. The host set a fireplace so we could warm up since the day was chilly.
Can’t wait to come back!
We loved this Sniffspot. The dogs had a blast tearing along the trails and through the woods. So many awesome touches by the host, like bubbles, a fire and smores, lots of balls and great signage, made this a new favorite.
Love this spot! It is one of our favorites. Love being able to expand our walk onto the DNR land behind it. The campfire and s’more kit was such a cute touch!
Super cute place. Our dog had a lot of fun.
Such a fun location!
Really beautiful walk today! I thought the light campfire was the sweetest little touch! Very clean. Easy directions to follow. I have ATT and had reception the entire time. My pup and I had a wonderful time. Will be back again!
Amazing! My girl is going through a reaction phase and needs some time out of the city as we work on helping her control her emotions while she is "grounded" at our home in Seattle. She absolutely loved this property. It's a bit of a drive but we will be regulars! Also, they have EVERYTHING you need. Even bubbles :-)
Such a good day!!!!
It was a lovely walk for my dogs. We appreciated the water station for the dogs too. The signs were so helpful. A great spot that we hope to return to.
Beautiful place! Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
Spacious and 10min trails!!! I was able to clock in some cardio for me too! My pup had so much fun running around! He was confused about a horse but we didn’t approach them, just saw it in a distance. Great trail and enough space for fetch but we didnt have to!
Always a nice peaceful time for both of us. Thanks!
Such a fun spot! Parking/trails were clearly labeled and easy to find. We had a great time exploring!
Such a lovely space. Dogs had a blast! Will be back
Amazing place! The pups had so much fun and will be back!!!
This place has it all. Signs everywhere and were SO helpful! Toys and even a place to sit and relax. We LOVE it!
Such a beautiful spot!!
Easy to find, fun trails!
A great walk and a really wonderful/ thoughtful sniffspot! Thanks for sharing your property!!
This place was an absolute dream. The entire trail was very well marked and let you know exactly where you needed to go. You start off at the little bridge that takes you by a beautiful little pond. We were glad that we wore our rain boots as it was a bit muddy in places. There was balls and toys for Bixby to play with which was awesome. He has bloodhound in him so he usually just loves smelling all the smells but he did play fetch a little today and he also was very interested in the bubbles which was a cute touch. And we LOVED club zoomies. We are working on Bixbys recall and this was the perfect place to do it. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to check this Sniffspot out and we are hoping to be back very soon 🐾 We had a little mishap and we had left our sunglasses in the driveway but Preston was super quick to answer my message and that speedy response and help with our problem was really very kind.
Such a beautiful place to drive and spot to let your pup romp. Despite there still being a little snow left from the recent storm, the trails were clear, and hosts even had a little fire going in the fire pit by the creek when I arrived. Very peaceful, and easy to find as a result of the signs placed in great locations. My dog loved the creek and designated “zoomies “ field to plat fetch in.
The trail was amazing and my dog had so much fun running in the off leash area! I really appreciate all of the effort that was put into this amazing spot to make it so enjoyable.
Beautiful and what feels like endless trails! Made more perfect by the snow!
Beautiful area and kind/friendly host.
Such a wonderful spot. Our pup loves it here! The owners even had a fire with s’mores set out for us. Unfortunately the rain got to the fire before we could indulge in the s’mores, but it still was such a sweet offer
Lovely place we enjoyed our walk!
A delightful spot. So glad to have visit. Wonderful winding trails through enchanted old growth woods. Well marked so even a directionally challenged person like me cannot get lost. Very well thought out to the finest detail. Will be excited to keep this in our rotation for my reactive boy. We did see some horses that belonged to the neighbor. It always make me so happy when my fearful boy is so accepting. Looking forward to next time.
Roman had a wonderful time exploring this property! He learned what an electric fence was, that’s pretty much a life skill for a dog. He ran the whole time and really enjoyed being able to cool off in the water. We live an hr+ away but we’ll be back.
This was our first visit & we will definitely be back. We didn't plan our time very well since it gets dark so early but the hosts were very kind & made sure that we knew we were safe on their property. Our sweet pup Roxi loved sniffing around the edge of the ponds & got a little too close at one point & took a little unintended dip. Looking forward to exploring more in the daylight some day.
We spent 1.5 hours with our 5 pups today. We got wet but the trails weren’t terribly muddy which was great and they all got cleaned off in the pond. They all had a blast running free through the woods and a nice little grassy meadow area to get their zoomies out!
Lovely spot. Feels Like you’re out in the woods alone!
Great open area with a micro hike to club zoomies! My dogs and I loved it even in the rain. Many thoughtful amenities- we will be back.
Beautiful and private spot! We'll be back for sure.
Great site, dogs love walking the trails
It’s been a long time since I’ve visited - I like the changes they’ve made. The club zoomies area is a good size, fended off. There’s plenty of interesting things to sniff, plus a table and some chairs. My dog had a good time exploring and running around.
A favorite time to visit!
Another great experience here. My pups love it and I love feeling safe to let them run and explore.
Beautiful space and can’t wait to return. Highly recommended!
Such a beautiful property. Lots of places for the hounds to sniff and a fantastic place for a nice long walk. The hosts take great care of the property and even had a fire going for us with s’mores at the end of our visit! (C’mon, how nice is that?!) The dogs had a blast and crashed out almost the entire drive home. Highly recommended and can’t wait to visit again.
Had such a beautiful time - got to watch the morning dew and fog lift off the horse pasture as the sun came streaming in! It was something out of a fairytale!
We've been here a number of times recently and it's been wonderful! The hosts are so thoughtful and have provided everything you might need during your visit....fresh water, poop bags & trash can, toys, towels, a hose....it's just amazing. The private trails are so peaceful and beautiful and, if you decide to check out the DNR trails, they go as far as you can imagine. "Club Zoomies" is fantastic...a really great fenced area which is where we end up spending most of our time. Cooper, who doesn't care for balls much at all, is addicted the the 2 tennis balls and runs over to the toy rack to get them the moment we get close. We just love it here. Thank you guys so much for creating such a safe, fun spot! ♥
This Sniffspot is fantastic. The owner has clearly spent a lot of time thinking about how to welcome visitors. From the clear signage in the driveway and parking area, to the well-marked trails, to the chairs and tables set up for humans, to the hose and water dish way out in the Zoomies pasture, everything shows an attention to detail. Piper was very happy alternating between sniffing along wooded trails and playing frisbee and soccer in the clearing. She also saw her first horse (through a fence). We booked for two hours, which gave us enough time to play, eat lunch, and play some more. We'll be back!
Beautiful property and such a joy to explore!
This was a beautiful sniffspot out in the country I just wish my pup had better recall so I could have actually trusted her to run free out on the trails. I wanted to trust her but there are several areas that have trails that go onto dnr land next to the property. The off leash area is nice but I misunderstood thinking it was a fully fenced smaller area as it is NOT! It is almost all the way fenced but if your dog is a stinker like mine they will find the one area that's not fenced.... it was a nice little retreat I just should have booked more than an hr spot and not gotten lost on the way. I may try coming again with more time. I did hear dogs barking like crazy upon arrival but it stopped once I started up the trail. The owners did do a great job with directions on the property while I really appreciated as I have a terrible sense of direction
Magical! Beautiful, well-marked trails with open areas for fetch. Host is very considerate and has placed mosquito repellent, chairs, tennis balls, and more for guests. Absolutely loved our visit!
Beautiful trails, tons of space and a fun place to run
We love this Sniffspot! The path was well made and easy to navigate and my puppy loves the off leash area. Even though it was sprinkling, all the trees covered us and we hardly got wet. We had a lot of fun roaming around and exploring!
Amazing amazing spot! We have visited Black Pond Farm in the past but, after the recent updates, I am completely blown away. We had a blast! As you drive up to the property, you'll see parking on the left. There you will find some supplies in a plastic tub, poop bags, a trash can and water for your pup. ♥ Across the driveway toward the pond is the trail to "Club Zoomies". The hike is so enjoyable...lovely, groomed trail with some smaller more primitive trails off to the side here and there. Very fun to wander through and there are signs everywhere, it would be nearly impossible to get lost. The DNR public land is off to the right and clearly marked should you choose to venture that way. We never felt the need to leave the private property...we scheduled an hour and a half and I felt like we barely had enough time to explore. At the end of the nice relaxing hike you arrive to "Club Zoomies" which is a nice combination of open space and woods. There is a table with chairs, toys (which Cooper found right away) and even a working hose at the far end! These guys really thought of everything. It is obvious the folks at Black Pond Farm have put a lot of love into this spot and we are so grateful. ♥ Cooper was absolutely ecstatic to be here and me too...we just had so much fun and can't wait for our next visit!
Beautiful, well-maintained spot. My pups wore themselves out running on the trails.
Easily the most well-thought-out Sniffspot that we’ve been to!
My favorite sniff spot in the whole wide world!!
Black pond farms is such a nice spot! Everything is well-labeled and so cute! Trails lead you to a wooded field filled with lots of wonderful things to sniff and jump over. They even had a fire with smore kits for the humans! Such a great space!
Really nice Sniffspot! Quiet and pretty, lots to explore in the woods but some open area for running, too. Really appreciated the towels since our dog decided to jump in the pond just before we left.
Such a beautiful and clean Sniffspot!
A lovely spot for hiking and swimming privately. Our adolescent Labrador puppy has trouble on normal walks in the city because of all the people and dogs he is learning to be okay with. Here, he was able to have so much fun and become more comfortable away from home.
This place is amazing. The trails are beautiful and well maintained and the hosts have thought of everything. They really make you feel welcome. We will be back!
This is one of our favorite sniff spots! Always a great time, the dogs love it.
One of our dogs is reactive to other dogs and some people. We utilize sniff spot so she can have a safe private space to relax and burn off some steam. I am really disappointed that we had 3 separate run ins with someone with a horse on the actual trail and space designated for Sniff spot during the hour we were there. Fortunately no contact was made with our dogs and the horse because are very vigilant about owning a reactive dog and very aware of our surroundings so we could quickly grab her but it did not create a relaxing environment to be in and I am shocked the property owner would put themselves at risk for such a liability. If we truly had the trail to ourselves I would rate 5 stars, but with what we experienced this is not a safe space for reactive dogs.
This place is amazing! So peaceful. We had a great time walking the trails and playing with some toys in the open space zoomie area! My dog really enjoyed playing in the ponds as well, along with the climbing wall! I think that was her favorite :)
Signage was great and very clear throughout the whole area. Highly recommend!
Amazing spot, love coming here! Thank you for allowing for a perfect end to a weekend 😊
Improvements have been made so that signage is a lot more clear. Thanks!!!!
Beautiful site in a forest with ponds. A bit out of town but easy to find. Water and toys were provided. Excellent signage. There chairs setup at a couple locations for us to sit and relax. Our dog had a great time!
Very fun Sniffspot! The land is expansive and there are a lot of trails on the DNR land that is adjacent to the property. The "Zoomie Zone" is nicely laid out and a good place to take a break and sit for a bit. Our dogs loved it and we plan to visit again for sure. Maybe our favorite Sniffspot yet!
Lovely, quiet spot with several trails and ponds. Both the humans and the dog very much enjoyed it!
A note on fencing - the fencing is secure enough to prevent the dogs from interacting with the horses, but the side facing the DNR land is not fenced (although it is marked well so you don't go off trail!).
This was my first time back since the updates and it was a great experience. Clearly marked trail and "Club Zoomies" was really fun. A few blackberry vines so make sure your footwear is appropriate.
This is a beautiful, wooded area. A long trail leads to a small meadow, the zoom area. Dogs really appreciated the hose and bucket on the fence. Thank you. My vocal girl had issues with the horses behind the fence. She showed them, and me, by rolling in several horse poop piles...she needed a bath anyway. But be prepared. The dogs loved chasing each other around all the side trails. Black Pond is a wonderful adventure for both two and four pawed creatures.
Wonderful place for the pups as always! Went for a swim in the pond then ran around the trails. Happy's tails all around!
Great place, areas are well marked and grounds are carefully maintained. There was water for dogs, towels, doggie bags and trash container. Chairs for hoomans too! We chose this because of ponds.. there is only one they let you use, it was small but big enough to train our hunting dogs on. Would be nice if we could have used the bigger pond - it was in the area marked private.
This has to be our favorite sniff spot EVER!! The pond the trails the field the rock to climb the hose for fresh water. Seriuosly had the best time! Thank you so much for all the signs. We will be back for sure!!
Dog and humans had a great time! Tables and seats for humans at start of trail and at club zoomies area. Really nice trail with signage, our dog isn’t the greatest with recall so we had her mostly on a long lead but the club zoomies area was still lots of fun for us.
This was a very nice spot to walk around and play off leash, the dogs had fun!
We had an amazing time at the ranch. Signage was great and we had no problem getting oriented. Ziggy had a blast we will definitely be back :)
My dogs accidentally got to say hi to the nice gray horse because I got confused and immediately went the wrong way. Turns out, I just needed to turn around to see the well marked trailhead (and pond), which leads to a beautiful forested area. Abi and Diego got to roam to their heart's content. Thank you for opening up your space!
Great site, lots of good sniffing for the dogs!
We had such a wonderful visit and loved getting to bask in the beauty of the horses! The doggos and the kiddos had such a great time exploring and even better - now they’re all tired! Looking forward to coming back to explore some more.
Such a fun place, they thought of all the details! Our labradoodle had a blast and so did our kids!
Beautiful spot, our dogs absolutely loved their visit! Nice and shaded for a hot summer’s day!
Max loved it!
Very nice quiet spot with trails and an open field. We did walk on the DNR land next door and did not run into anyone.
It took us a few moments to get oriented to the changes since the last time we were here, but the signage is helpful and the updates are lovely. We had a great time! We will definitely be back.
Our first SniffSpot ever! We had a great time. We have 2 foster dogs from Texas and this was such a fun outing for them! Thank you for offering such a wonderful little spot!
Kai and I are regular visitors to Black Pond Farm but we always find it and interesting and fun visit. The addition of Club Zoomies is wonderful, so now we play fetch in the field, then walk some of the trails and come back and play more fetch. Then we end up with a wade in the pond back at the parking spot! The place is spotless and everything is well marked. I love to see things through the changing seasons. We look forward to many more visits!
Amazing and peaceful
A wonderful spot to visit! We will definitely be back to enjoy the trails and “Club Zoomies” area! The bug spray, water hose, ball, chairs, all were very much appreciated! You have thought of everything and it was so well organized and clean! Thank you for a very enjoyable visit!!
Amazing amazing spot! Perfect for our pups to run around it. Definitely one of our favorite Sniffspots!
amazing location, very clean and very clearly marked paths. they are so gracious and helpful with a water bowl on site and other thibgs you might need.
This sniffspot was great, my boy loved the trail! Lots of water, bowls, towels provided for convenience as well. Will return !
We had a great time! Thank you so much!
this was our 3rd visit, but 1st time booking it myself, as we are usually with another pair of dogs, and Bubba's last foster mom. Bubba loves the smells from the parking lot to Club Zoomies. Unfortunately, Bubba is always a ground critter away from disappearing into the woods, so he gets a long line instead of being off leash, but he doesn't mind. Next time I'll book 90 minutes so he can explore a bit more. The place is always so clean and well maintained, and the hose at Club Zoomies is a nice addition. it's certainly our favorite sniff spot.
Wonderful location! Our reactive puppy had the best time on the trails and took a splash in the pond.. we will absolutely visit here again! You've got privacy and plenty of trails to venture on, along with a lovely setup when you arrive with a number of complementary necessities like bug spray and towels!
this was a great spot to allow the dogs to run and explore!
First time visit, with my two pups. We had a great time, enjoyed the trail and the sun with a bit of play by the pond. Loved the care package box filled with water, towels and other possible necessities. We will will be back for sure.
Terrific spot, especially for our water-loving retrievers! Thanks for the plentiful signage and the bucket for poo bags!
Such a great place! Everything needed is there! It is our favorite spot!
Super unique and fun spot! Nice and shady for hot summer days. The hosts were very lovely and accommodating and there are multiple dog water stations and bug spray. Really thoughtful setup. Our pup had a great time exploring the trails. The signage was very useful, we never worried about getting lost. We could hear a couple of dogs barking and roosters in the distance (she is dog reactive) but it was far enough away that she wasn’t too bothered so it was a nice training opportunity :) We will definitely come back!
A great getaway after all the heat! The walk up to Club Zoomie is shaded and there is water up there! On the way back Kai took a dip in the pond and explored the ramparts. Always a wonderful place to visit!
So much fun. Room to roam. Fantastic amenities. We will certainly be back.￼
Beautiful spot with lots to sniff and room to run around. Feels like you have an entire forest to yourself! I appreciated the good signage, water, and bug spray.
The host wasn’t expecting us, so when we drove up 3 (very cute) dogs ran up to out car to greet us which caused my reactive dog to freak out and be stressed for the next hour. In the future I would confirm with the host that their dogs won’t greet us before driving up to the spot.
We could see horses from the spot, and they sometimes walked up to the fence. Great training opportunity!
We have visited this spot 3 times now and will continue to keep coming back. My dog is old and reactive and this gives her a space to explore miles of trails, mostly shaded (depending how far you go) and a little elevation to give her a good workout. Today we saw a huge frog and a deer on trail! We saw no people or other dogs on the DNR land. The new club zoomies area is a lot of fun as well, nice work Preston.
Great place. Out pups really enjoyed it. The provided bug spray was much appreciated!
Just gorgeous, gravel trails are peaceful and pristine, well kept and easy to navigate. The zoomie spot is SUPER fun for the doggies and we ventured off into DNR land for a bit which the dogs enjoyed exploring too. I didn’t want to leave!
love the open trails, the ponds, and open field! first time coming and it was very very fun and peaceful for sure! thank you for your spot! cant wait to come again!
I’ve thought about booking this spot several times but always hesitated since the host previously stated there is a chance of encountering other people due to the type of land it backs up to (we have reactive dogs). I’ve been following their renovation updates on Facebook and decided to book now that it’s partially fenced. Oh boy, it did not disappoint! First you pull up through these awesome castle like walls, a super cute sitting area and little pond. There are leashes, water, balls, trash and other items provided as you enter. As you walk through the well maintained trails you are met with multiple bug sprays and open area for dogs to explore. At the end we found chairs for us to sit in the sun while the dogs played in the “zoomies club”. It was such a tranquil area! We did hear voices and the dogs did investigate but it was on the other side of the fence so no stress on our end. Excellent spot and a must book, especially in the summer time!
Truly a lovely escape into the woods. Lovely private lands that my dog loved exploring. The owners put a lot of care into marking everything and putting up signage so the way back to the parking lot was super clear. Even so, I did get confused a few times. I'd go into gravel off-trails and somehow end up coming out of a private or restricted area I wasn't supposed to go into. Probably just due to my shoddy sense of direction :)
My dog and I thoroughly enjoyed our time today at Black Pond Farm! My dog, Prince Larry, gets along with other dogs, but he barks non stop when he sees another dog, which is why you we chose to use SniffSpot. Not a single bark the whole time we were at Black Pond Farm!
It's also a beautiful location!
Great time for a couple of boston terrier puppies! Thanks so much!
Great spot for a reactive dog, it was nice to take a walk without stressing about seeing someone or another dog.
Nice trail to walk in the woods which ends at a little meadow. There's a garbage can at the entrance which is always appreciated and bug spray too. We could hear a dog barking near the trail entrance but we didn't see it. And the meadow is next to a horse pasture. These things could potentiality be problematic for reactive dogs but we used it as a training opportunity. We would like to come back!
We really liked this "new" spot! Dog really liked doing his zoomies on the new trails in the forest.
Happy to be back at Black Pond Farm. The dogs enjoyed the new primitive trails and playing on the new flat, open area.
Today Kai and I visited the newly reopened Black Pond Farms and had a lovely 2 hour visit. We played fetch in the off leash area; walked the trails and enjoyed climbing on obstacles; and cooled off in the pond at the end. This is a great spot with a bit of everything to offer. Bugs aren't out yet but will be soon so bring some bug spray (the hosts have provided some). We return to this spot over and over as there is always something new to see and explore.
Wow..what a great location. Our dogs absolutely loved all the trails and woods to run in. We will definitely be back😊
