Description

Does life feel “ruff” sometimes? Maybe it’s time to run free in an enclosed private backyard with lots of grass. Or are you looking to “make your mark” in this world? Or perhaps you just want to “paws” and relax in the shade. If so, then Shaggy’s Shack Sniffspot is for you....and your awesome human, too! Shaggy’s Shack in Tempe has lots of grass for running, chasing balls, and doing the zoomies! It’s fully enclosed with a 5 to 6-foot block wall and more than 25 trees and bushes to explore. You can play fetch with tons of toys and there’s a designated digging spot, too. Or maybe you just want to cool off in a diving pool that’s professionally cleaned every Wednesday–even during Tempe’s cold months. Oh, and Shaggy’s Shack also has features shaded chairs for your human to relax as they watch you explore, play fetch, swim, and have a pawsitively good time. Shaggy’s Shack’s residents (and their humans) will be home but out of sight. The entire lot is just shy of a half-acre, and it’s conveniently located in Tempe. Many dogs live in the area, they may bark in greeting when they hear you. We offer many pawsome amenities at Shaggy’s Shack, including bags and a trash can for your nature calls and a disposable water dish with lots of fresh water (and water for your human, too). Clean towels for drying off after you’ve doggie-paddled in the pool are also provided. Of course, use of the pool is at your and your human’s own risk. The pool is chlorinated and not heated in the winter months. Your human may use the pool to get a closer look at your pawsome doggie paddling technique. While we provide towels for you, we ask that your human brings their own towels. There is no fence or gate around the pool, and we strongly encourage you to bring your own doggie life vest if you do decide to get your paws wet. Discounts are available for multiple dogs. Visit times can be extended if there is availability. Respecting Sniffspot’s 30-minute transition time between visit times is very important. So that no one gets hurt or gets into something that could be dangerous, glass, alcohol and smoking are prohibited. All pups need to be up-to-date on all vaccinations to keep our resident and visiting doggos healthy. Since Shaggy’s Shack Sniffspot is for dogs, please be mindful of your doggie to human ratio; kids are welcome but must be 100% supervised, especially around the ungated, unfenced pool. Our goal is to make your time at Shaggy’s Shack loads of fun for you and your human so you’ll come back again and again. We’re sure you’ll need a long cat nap after a furbulous visit to Shaggy’s Shack! What are you waiting for? Stop chasing your tail and schedule your time at Shaggy’s Shack Sniffspot today! We’re sure you’ll have a pawesome time!

  • Anne M., Feb 15, 2024

    My dog had a great time. There are plenty of toy's for your dog to play with and room to run. This place had everything you and your dog will need.

  • Dalton R., Feb 9, 2024

    It was wonderful as always! My girlfriend’s parents had a very pawsitive experience and had nothing but great things to say! The pups of course loved it as always!

  • Dede M., Feb 3, 2024

    Love visiting Shaggy’s Shack! Ingrid has a lot of toys that Cooper finally decided to try and had fun with. He is a little shy with new things but was enthusiastic (a bit too much!) with several of the toys.

  • Adrianna L., Feb 1, 2024

    Thank you to Ingrid for always having the best spot! We love Shaggy’s Shack!

  • Scott E., Jan 30, 2024

    A very welcoming and organized experience. The host did an amazing job providing all the necessary supplies and toys for our dogs to have fun and clean them. Host has a dedicated area where you can wash off your dogs dirty paws or body and even provided towels for them! Lovely full grown trees on the property and a quiet and peaceful neighborhood An overall great experience and look forward to coming here again.

  • Lysi N., Jan 15, 2024

    It's a beautiful space! My dog loved the splash pad and rolling in the grass as well as playing with the supply of frisbees and balls. What a great way to celebrate her 10th birthday! There was even a sign welcoming her for her birthday! Easy to find and park at. Would highly recommend this spot.

  • Denise G., Jan 14, 2024

    Another great romp around Ingrid’s immaculate yard!

  • Deirdre S., Dec 31, 2023

    My little girl pup wants to move in with Ingrid. 1.5 hours solid running for both my pups and while the boy was tired she had to be seriously coaxed and cajoled to leave. Everything there is wonderful and Ingrid is so helpful. If you look at the pictures, you can see the water got pretty dirty, but it was crystal clear when we got there.  The kiddie pool is definitely a plus (extra but SO worth it)

We are huge dog lovers and the owners of wonderful dogs over the years. Shaggy, a lab mix, was quite the escape artist frequently found hanging out with the musicians on Mill Avenue until we moved here 25 years ago. He realized how good he had it with a huge backyard, a cool pool and lots of nature to explore. Over the years we’ve been blessed with a Lab, a Golden, Border Collies and Chihuahua mixes. Most of our pups have been rescues and yes, it is true, they did rescue us. Because of all the unknowns at dog parks and the pawsome feeling of seeing dogs run free, we are so happy to share our big backyard with pups and their “furbulous” humans. We hope you enjoy your visit at Shaggy’s Shack!
