Puppy Paradise in Salado

My name is Jonnie. Puppy Paradise is in many ways a puppy! We have lots of potential! Right now renting our space means getting access to ALL 30 acres of this beautiful space. Puppy Paradise will eventually be a complex of 5-7 dog parks/boarding kennel/daycare pack/on-site self-service or by appointment dog grooming and much more. @puppyparadisesalado on instagram is a great place to learn about our dog care philosophy. Right now we are still sharing this vision with new friends every week and hope to see several new friends everyday. When you visit, expect to see myself, often for just a quick hello, expect that my dogs will be either in my home or a small enclosed pump house area at the very entrance to the property. Signs are being made. ☺️ I am eager to accommodate dog parents of reactive or aggressive dogs. Your dogs deserve to be outdoors and in a place where they can be protected from the unexpected off leash dog! Or even the expected on leash debacle! I can’t promise an always distraction free experience but if I can meet the need, I’ll move lots of things to make it happen. #reactivedogsmatter Expect to see me working around the property, potentially with a tractor. If I am working, I’ll try and give you a heads up and it’s usually easy to avoid me in such a large space. I’m happy to accommodate the needs of any guest dog while still being eager to get more building done everyday. I’m building portable water stations to place all around the property, giving more dogs access to fresh water on hot days. The 30 acre perimeter has been fenced with a strong hog-wire. It does a great job of keeping wildlife out and dogs safely inside. I am building 7 smaller spaces, within the 30 acres, ranging from 1.2 to 6 acre fully enclosed parks. Please communicate needs if your dogs are boundary sensitive to hearing dogs without being able to see them. I want every guest dog and emotional support human to feel delighted and uplifted for having visited Puppy Paradise. 🐶🤍

We loved this Sniffspot! Plenty of room for our mastiff to run and explore. Hammys Hollow was well kept and we loved hearing the horses from their stable. Host provided water, dog toys & chairs for us :) Will definitely make the trip up here again.

HUGE fenced in area with some farm animals. I think my dogs would have been able to get through the fence but the place was so large they never got close to the fence line. We had a fun time and will be back again!

Great time had by all! We had no issues at all. One beagle sniffed the whole seven acres looking for a rabbit. The other three had the freedom to roam and stayed close to us. We practiced recalls from a long distance. A very secure area and we had no issues at all.

This is an amazing spot to let the dogs off leash! I wasn't at all worried about them getting out, even with my smaller 30 pound dog. There are some neighboring animals (a couple of dogs, cows, horses, and goats), but they are all friendly. Tucker loved to run around, and there is plenty of room to throw his frisbee. The owner is super nice and gives so much helpful info before your reservation!

Wonderful spot for the dogs to enjoy! We walked around the perimeter on the mowed trail and then spent some time playing fetch. It was a very fun and relaxing afternoon for us all.

Coming to this place was worth the hour drive from Austin! The dogs were able to run their tails off, play fetch, and walk around with us. The dogs got the best exercise ❤️

My first time using Sniffspot & I was not disappointed! My dogs absolutely enjoyed running around and exploring here! The area was well fenced so I had no worries of them getting out. We had a great time and will definitely come here again!

What a fun day! Host has created a very secure fence line that kept our boys (small 12 lbs and big 70 lbs) safe while exploring and smelling all the smells. We enjoyed playing ball and walking around. It truly is an adventure for them and we can’t wait to visit again.

Sarah gave great information that assured a smooth and safe arrival and visit to her property. We loved the big amount of space and that our pup was able to safely sniff off-leash.

A lovely countryside retreat where our dogs got to stretch their legs after a long couple of days at a dog show.

This was our first time using Sniffspot and this was a fantastic choice! My three had so much fun running through the field and on the perimeter trail. Will absolutely be booking again.

Great place to let your dogs run off lead safely. Great set up. I brought my pack of four Malinois. You can see some sheep and a cow from the area but that side of the fence is very secure. My adults know not to bother livestock but I have a puppy that barked and the stock didn’t care and the fence was secure enough I could just work on recalling her away from them.

This was our first time ever using a sniff spot and we are impressed! The walking area was mowed nicely, there were two water bowls available, and the instructions were clear. Communication was great and my three dogs are going to sleep well today after multiple laps of this area! Will visit again!

Very good spot to let your dogs roam! Fence was fully secured, grass was mowed into a nice path. The profile says “sometimes” you may encounter neighboring animals at the fence but we did NOT encounter any neighboring animals which was nice! We came in the morning. It was very very peaceful!!

This spot is a country side, flower filled, doggy heaven! The secure fencing, peaceful environment and large space makes this spot a must for our dogs.

This was was my first sniff spot to visit. It was exactly what the description says and was a very good place to let my very reactive dog get some free time. Thanks to Sarah! Will definitely be back.

Loved taking my dog here! We met with a friend and took our dogs here where there was plenty of room for them to run around. My dog is highly reactive but did amazing off-leash here. The LGDs nextdoor were so friendly and my pup went right up to the fence with them without reacting at all! We had a good experience and will be back!

FAQ about our Temple dog parks

Are dog parks good for dogs?
It is important for dogs to have off leash exercise to sniff and run. But the free and open nature of public dog parks has drawbacks. There could be aggressive dogs, disease transmission and cleanliness issues. For this reason, many dog behaviorists discourage visiting public dog parks and recommend Sniffspot's private dog parks. Sniffspot private dog parks only allow one guest to book at a time and are not open to the public, which solves many of these issues.
