Super nice host, left out water and bug spray and goodies! Lots of space to run, pups can get a lot of zooms and sniffs in. Buggy but the host leaves bug spray out for you. Overall a fun spot and we’ll be back! If your dog doesn’t have recall, get a long leash— the space is open so it won’t get tangled in trees.

This place was amazing! It was very private, I felt very comfortable letting my dog run around. There was a box of toys, rags, treat, and water containers. I loved the agility equipment that was set out. Will definitely be coming back

Great area for our pup. We are still training her and it was nice to have new smells and items to use for distraction training and to show her her first pieces of agility equipment.

Dawn’s dog park (Sniffspot) in Summerville is absolutely the best kept area for your pups to run and play! The owner has everything you could need or want for your pups to play, train on the obstacle course or just be a dog. Well kept and safe fenced in area. My dog loves the wide open space to run. Definitely recommend!

Very open, safe and clean play area for your fur baby! Large variety of toys, doggy treats and fresh water 😀. Dawn even thought of the humans with a sitting area along with a large fan for your comfort during the hot summer months. We will definitely be back!

My dogs love to play here! They recognize the gate and start to whine to get out the car lol. My boy Leo loves the noise ball and begs me to get it out the second we get there. Dawn is so sweet and has a pool they can play in on a hot day, but the poods were too scared of the sprinklers on it to jump in 😆. Best place to let them run and play. Dawn even brought out fresh bowls of water. She goes above and beyond, such a great host😊

Great spot, well maintained, lots of different toys and activities. Our dog had an amazing. Highly recommend. Can’t give enough stars. Can hear dogs barking and rooster crowing far in the distance, but you can’t see either. (My low triggered dog didn’t have any issues with the noises)

This location is set up perfectly for your dog to be able to run around and get out some energy. The table location for human sits right between two tree to provide shade. They have every utensil needed for the perfect day.

Such an amazing spot! It was a great place for our dog-reactive pup to run around stress free. Fun toys and the treats were a plus! We will be back :)

Our dogs just love Dawn’s playground!! When we pull up in the truck and stop they start screaming and almost drag us to the gate! It is always so clean, shade and good fencing….. and the dog’s toy box is the big hit! We will never switch from this place. Just love it and the 2 acres is the best!
