My pup was reunited with her sister here and they had the best time running all around the yard. Especially enjoyed the treats :)

3 out of 3 boxers give this spot 5 stars! Yard was clean and secure for my dogs with plenty of grass, trees, and shrubs to explore. The host left a fresh tennis ball as well as towels to clean feet when we were done.

This is a huge yard for having such a central location. It’s big and open with a slight hill, so good for fetch. The yard is fully fenced and generally felt very private but I heard a bit of radio noise when I was close to one side of the yard and once I heard a dog bark in the distance like maybe from inside a neighboring house. There are chairs, a large open covered patio, a water bowl and some toys! Soba loved exploring and playing here!

Clover and I had a great romp and enjoyed getting out of our apartment! The yard had great shade. There was a fair amount of traffic noise, as expected for a yard in the city, but something to keep in mind for your pup. If you have a small dog who likes to either hide or escape, be sure to supervise them well. The yard is secure, but there's a gap of about 4 inches below the gate. There are also gaps of 4-6 inches to get under the shed and the deck, and one area in the wood fence that's again about 4 inches. It wasn't a problem for us, but again, something to keep in mind for your dog. As for us, we had a great time and will certainly be visiting again!

Just what we needed for my reactive pup who is recovering from knee surgery!! Not too big, no distractions and tons of good sniffs!

The site is exactly what is advertised and there’s a nice deck that you can sit on and a nice sized yard. The fences are a good height as well, so I wasn’t worried about my dog trying to escape or getting riled up by something

Convenient sniff spot with plenty of space for my pup to roam. She really enjoyed chasing after some of the toys in the yard.

We frequent this spot and love it. Ample room, clean, free of hazards. Ben is an exceptional host and this spot is our favorite

Ben's spot is a nice cozy, large enough yard to make any pup happy. Nice and shady! You feel nice and secluded. Yard is super secure! Just bring an extra ball in case it goes under the deck. It's perfect, I'll definitely be a regular. 10*

Such a cute backyard and perfect size, even for my three dogs. I could keep an eye on all of them while they explored. Thankful to Ben for providing a water bowl because it was warmer than I thought it was going to be. Overall, would visit again for sure!

A perfect little backyard with a basketball hoop (hence the name Air Bud 🥰). It is fully fenced, has water access with a bowl provided, and a garbage can to toss the poop in, but make sure to BRING YOUR OWN BAGS! Free wifi is also provided, which is so sweet of the host to offer 🥹 The fence is old so there are some gaps at the bottom where it has rotted out, but they’re blocked with rocks - my dog is 60lbs, so it wasn’t an issue for us, but if you have a smaller dog, maybe do a walk-around before letting your pup off leash. All in all, this is a great spot that we will definitely be returning to!

Nice little spot, exactly as described and perfect for its intended purpose. Our pup had a good time :)

Private space with no other animals present. There are a few small holes in the fence that are covered up with rocks, but large dogs would not be able to escape.

Quiet area and great spot to run around. We got caught in a bit of a downpour so I look forward to returning for a longer visit!

Great place for our pup to run around a lot! Fence is sturdy and gate is easy to get into the yard. The Wifi password is posted on a window and there is plenty of seating on the deck. Safe, tidy and we will return!

This spot was just what we needed! We wanted to find a neutral place for our 2 year old Rottweiler to meet a new pup friend for the first time. It was easy to find, very secure, and quiet. The pups had a great time!

We visited this spot today and LOVED it. Perfect sized yard and I have a Belgian Malinois. Full fenced, very secure. Quiet neighborhood. There’s a place to get water for your bowl, lots of seating and wifi. We will be making this a weekly visit. Thanks Ben!! We had a blast!

Great yard! Fully fenced and very much appreciated the bright light that illuminated the area as the winter daylight faded. Dogs had a great time. Will definitely return.

FAQ about our Tacoma dog parks
