Mark's Funny Farm Dog Park In Longmont

This is a private 10 Acre Ranch called “The Funny Farm” here on the outskirts of Boulder County. I keep my front yard as a parking area and my backyard as a sanctuary!!! I’m from Annapolis, Maryland originally and so is my girlfriend. We’ve been together for 4 years here in Colorado. She has a 5 year old lil girl so we are kid friendly!!! Lost of toys for dogs and humans. My house is a tiny house… there is a bathroom you can use but we prefer to keep everyone outside, especially for the first visit. Our deck is amazing for sunrise/sunsets and it provides a nice view of the Rocky Mountain 🏔️ National Park. There’s a huge willow tree on my property so there’s plenty of shade in the back yard area… I used to have a swimming pond but it was too much trouble so I’m currently working on filling that in and making it a sitting patio. I’m a carpenter by trade… so I enjoy working outside. My family ran a nursery called Evergreen 🌲 Genes back in Maryland… so I grew up working with my family for 20 years. These days I mostly chill with my husky and family so I’ve been looking into alternative methods to make money during the week. I also play music for a living so my schedule is flexible and late at night/weekends. I haven’t been playing many gigs lately just working in the studio in downtown Longmont. So I’m around the farm pretty much most of the day. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I have a million dog bowls for water and tons of cool dog related activities. My dog is super friendly but if you just want privacy that’s fine too… we can discuss arrangements…. But if you have a pack animal and want a play mate…. Zelda Princess 👑 Bear is the best. Currently I have a small dog staying for a week and she has been living it up!!! I have two different dog pools… one for small dogs and one for large animals that the small ones can’t even get into if they tried 😆 All and all… I’m a huge animal lover. All I ask is that you respect my space and my privacy. Thank you!!! Let’s chat and see if it’s the right fit!!!

Lots of grass and shade. They left fresh water and a tub of toys. My boys had a great time just sniffing and running around. The neighbors did have a dog that was in their front law without a leash, but the dog went inside and did not approach my dogs while we left. We would definitely come here again!

Great place to take your dogs for some fun. The yard is a nice size and the hosts are very kind…they had two water bowls full and a basket of toys for my fur babies to enjoy. Definitely recommend!

FAQ about our Thornton dog hiking trails

Are dog hiking trails safe?
While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, inattentive owners, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks are much safer than a city or county park. With a Sniffspot off-leash area all bookings are private for just you and dogs you bring with you and we require all dogs to be vaccinated (or have equivalent titers). All Sniffspot locations are vetted and reviewed by guests so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog. 93% of reviews on Sniffspot visits are 5 stars. Our hiking trails tend to be outside the city, which lends to more privacy, but it is also important to follow typical hiking safety precautions, such as potentially having trail maps.
