35Great yard, lots of room to play but not very well maintained. The grass is a bit unkempt. My dogs also found some animal poop and had a great time rolling around in it.
55Nice long, shady yard. Lots of sniffing was had :)
55My dog loves it. Need to bring your own dog water as I'm not sure where communal water was
55Closest spot I’ve found to central DC that isn’t too small for Peaches to really run around!! So much fun.
55Our dog had a great time at Percy's Paradise! Easy access with plenty of space to roam and run, and the space feels private and is quiet. Thank you!
45My Beagle Delia had a great time. She walked around sniffing the whole time we were there, and she even smiled at one point. (I've never seen her smile before.) She's crashed out now, probably dreaming of her adventure.
55We had a fantastic time at our first ever Sniffspot! Good sniffs, great yard to play fetch, and a secure fence. The neighbors were even playing guitar while we were there and it was delightful.
55Easy to find and park. Yard is engaging for dogs who love to sniff and explore. Very clean. Great spot overall.
55The yard was huge and there were some balls and rope toys available. My dog definitely enjoyed himself!
55Great space with a nice long run so the dogs can really get some speed going after balls

Relaxing oasis in Alexandria

After living in a townhome in Old Town for 20 years with no backyard or outdoor space, I decided to buy a new house. My dogs only exercise was walking on a leash or finding empty dog parks at strange hours. Although my dogs were well-behaved, I observed a lot of negative behavior from pets and owners in city dog parks and wasn’t comfortable letting my dogs mingle there. When I bought this house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to create an oasis for my pets. My landscape architect clearcut 75 feet back into the woods, installed retaining walls to help level the steep slope on the side yard and planted lots of grass to create the perfect backyard. The property is on almost an acre, so the back of the fence is very private with a wooded area. Occasionally, you can see deer on their way to the creek and hear fox behind the fence, although that is usually after 11pm. There is a lot of privacy and nature to enjoy from the patio. Since my yard brings so much joy to my dogs, when my friend told me about Sniffspot, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to share this dog friendly space with the community. There is always ample street parking right in front of my house.  The 6 foot fence is reinforced with chicken wire to keep small dogs in and other animals out. The gentle slope is perfect for fetch to wear out high energy dogs faster. Lots of areas to sniff and explore. The entire yard is dog friendly with no pesticides or toxic plants. Water hose, dog bowl, toys, dog bags and trash can are provided. This yard was created for my dogs so all furniture is pet friendly and the dogs go wherever they want. I do try to keep them out of the fenced part of the garden (where the tacky yard art lives 😂) due to beer traps for the slugs but I don’t freak out when they jump the mini-fence. I don’t want any guest to feel any stress while visiting. Dogs will be dogs and normal dog behavior is expected. There is a fan next to the gazebo for warm days. The fan is plugged into a multi-outlet extension cord and you’re welcome to use both! If you’re into grounding, I never wear shoes when I’m in my yard. The entrance from the street is double gated, like a dog park, to prevent accidental escapes. Enjoy the gazebo and patio with dog beds for relaxing and shade. Surrounded by trees, the birds and fountain offer the perfect oasis to get away from high stress city living. Wednesday late mornings and early afternoons are blocked off for my lawn mowing company. Monday mornings, my dog poop pickup company services my yard. On Mondays, they usually come in the morning, but I don’t have a specific time. If you have a people aggressive dog, you may want to avoid this time since I don’t know when they will actually show up. I do pick up daily but have the service for anything missed as it’s a large yard with 3 dogs to track. If interested in hosting a party, I am open to a group of people and more dogs than the limit states. Send a chat to discuss details.
