Description

It’s always been very safe for off leash woodland adventures...because it feels like you have it all to yourself. You begin down at the lower pond by the castle and rock wall, Following a laidback walk in the shade up to the new off leash park. There is bug spray along the trail in case you forget to use some and want it. Please respect other visitors and make sure to put your doggie bags in the provided trash bins, and PLEASE do not put your doggie bags in the fire pit!!!

Cleanliness

100% of guests said this spot was as clean as expected during their visit.

Hazards

:: Native woodland experience. :: There are squirrels and various wild birds that may be seen or heard during your visit, so if your dog is reactive or has poor recall make sure they are on a leash as not to wander off! 🐾 The single top wire on the fence on the pasture side is electric, so I personally do not recommend touching it, although if you take a blade of grass and lay it on the single top wire you will be able to tell whether it is on or off. Again, I do not recommend doing this however :). 🐾 We are out in the country and people may rarely light off fireworks or shoot guns in the distance. They are not close to the property, but the noise carries. 🐾 We board horses on the property. Although rare, you may encounter one of the boarders riding on the section of trails used for Sniffspot to access other areas. They have been instructed to avoid our Sniffspot guests. We ask that you do not approach or feed treats to their horses without permission from their owners. (As with your puppers, every horse has a unique diet too.) Other sounds that you may hear while visiting a rural Sniffspot property include: chainsaws, lawn mowers, weed whackers, tractors, rented heavy equipment, dump trucks making deliveries, livestock in nearby pastures or roosters in chicken coops … but what you likely *won’t hear* are sounds you and your puppers are familiar with like sirens, trains at railroad crossings, car alarms or loud music. 😊 Happy Sniffing!

    This spot is definitely worth the 1.25 hour drive from West Seattle. Yesterday, even more so... We were all joyously surprised to find snow! The dogs thought they were in heaven. We left tired yet somehow also feeling replenished.

  • Laura D., Feb 25, 2024

    Great location. Everything was well marked - great signage! They have thought of everything from extra balls, dog towels and even had a fire going for us on what was a cold drizzly day. Lots of thoughtful touches.

  • Daniele M., Feb 24, 2024

    Beautiful land with very well maintained trails.

  • Cassandra S., Feb 23, 2024

    Well maintained walking trails, will visit again!

  • Emily A., Feb 22, 2024

    Such a tranquil and beautiful spot. Banjo and I loved our visit and he slept the whole way home 😊

  • Nina H., Feb 22, 2024

    Great spot as always!

  • Sean M., Feb 21, 2024

    Awesome spaces! Very well put together. Lola loved running and exploring! We’ll be back. 5 Star ⭐️

  • Priya A., Feb 18, 2024

    My dog loves various smells and turns in this lovely trail inside the club zoomies. The place was easy to find and it worked because I needed to have my dog on a leash as he is not supposed to run too much.

  • Elizabeth R., Feb 18, 2024

    An already great place always getting better! Love the additional trash can added at the zoomies! Thanks so much :)

  • Ali B., Feb 17, 2024

    A great place for trails, fun and water. Well maintained and great host. Partially fenced so dogs should have good recall.

    Host replied: What a great bunch of dogs! 🐾

We’ve been at Black Pond Farm since 1998, and our son started the Sniffspot to help with college. He is done with school and moved on to his career so we’re now taking care of the Sniffspot. If you can think of anything to improve our Sniffspot or you have any questions let us know!

Hike up the mini forest

Our property is shy of 12 acres, 9+ acres of which we're sharing as a private off leash dog space or Sniffspot. The entrance is over the bridge where the creek is and 'From Creek to Back of Property' is all yours to explore. You may unleash your doggies right after the bridge and chain the gate if you want. Dogs might run down the creek for a splash or drink. Continue on to our family campground, there are picnic tables you could use, enjoy a picnic with your loved ones if you're up for it. Then, up the hill you go to 'hike up the mini forest', free to roam around, listen to the birds, squirrels and other critters and sounds that nature brings you. You'll find seating areas while your dogs are at play, feel free to use them. The back of property behind fence is DNR land, so rest assured you’re on your own private little world with your furry buddies. The mini forest has some large walking paths and smaller trails scattered about, also some open meadows and is at a peaceful wooded setting. This is where I go to unwind and relieve my head of stress and worries. It’s my place of meditation, while my dogs sniff and romp around like crazy, do their zoomies and play hide n seek! *If you want to save a little bit of moolah, I offer membership. Forget about the gym, you'll get your exercise here with your dogs. If you are a member of my sniffspot, or have older dog/s and would like to drive below or up the hill to park so the fur buddy don't get exhausted, message me.* Some of you have asked about the cabins. Sniffspot is unavailable if Cabins are booked or vice versa. Booking is through Hipcamp (www.hipcamp.com). Name of listing: 'Grace E.'s Mini Forest Cabins'. Check it out by copying and pasting link below to browser or search listing through the hipcamp site. https://www.hipcamp.com/en-US/land/washington-grace-e-s-mini-forest-ex9hrrp8?shareid=1ddvuyvr3yh Anyway, hope you too will enjoy your little hike up our mini forest..

Woodland Tranquility Pathways - find solitude!

Off-grid Sniffspot location in rural Snohomish Washington! You will have the entire 5-acre property to yourself to enjoy! This part of our property is only used for Sniffspot guests. Would be perfect for those that don’t want to interact with others (i.e. cars driving by, strangers, the neighbors... ‘chatty hosts/property owners’😉). Safe place for adventurous individuals that prefer to explore alone with their doggo(s), a doggie daycare retreat, a memorable late evening of star-gazing, or a safe place for a highly reactive dog to have fun. Details: 5 acres, off-grid experience (no power or running water) with it’s own private entrance. Two grassy sloping yard areas with “Tranquility Trails” that loop up the hill. Secluded, native woodland with mowed grass. There are (overgrown) cottage style gardens. During your visit, feel free to pick blueberries, wild blackberries, apples or roses — or pull weeds — if that’s fun for you. 😉. This location is very relaxing. Plan for a couple hours or more to enjoy the quiet, rural lifestyle. TIP: if you have any concerns about your pup(s) going down the driveway, feel free to close the gate for added safety. Note: We are raising money to renovate the cottage located on the property by hosting a Sniffspot. Please do not explore inside the house, a roof collapse could happen before we can arrange for it to be replaced.

Alder trails Sniff a Spot

Our property is located off the Burn Road in Arlington and is 5 acres, 1 of which is fully fenced and there are about 3+ acres of woods that have a trails throughout that we are constantly trying to add onto. Access to the backyard will be through the double gates on the south side of the house. Access to the trails can be either gate along the back fence. We just ask that you close whichever gate you use upon entrance and exit. The trails currently are just shy of 1/4 of mile looping back to the gates of the fenced in backyard. We do have a seasonal pond in the woods that we plan on trying to expand access too (it’s a work in progress). The fence is 3.5 feet high split rail with chain link very secure, the back portion of fencing is strictly chain link same height but acts as a natural looking wild fence. Dogs can play ball, sniff around, and run off lease in the fenced yard. Dogs with good recall can be off leash on the trails and run throughout. We do have neighbors where our woods end that are mostly fenced but some do not have fencing (which is why recall is needed). There is no delineation between the neighbor to the north’s huge pasture area which would be off limits. Please enjoy yourself and let us know if you have any ideas to add to the property. The pictures were taken during the winter months, the property and trails are so much prettier during the spring through fall months. Thank you for stopping by.k
