This is my first time trying Sniffspot and I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot already! I have been wanting off leash time with my dog Xenon for a while now and this had it all, trails chairs, tables for relaxing and perfect ambiance! The directions were clear and the whole area was well taken care of. So thrilled to have found this spot!
Lovely spot for my two rescues. I was a bit worried at first for my blind dog, but I kept an eye on her and they had a great time. Both were passed out on the ride home. Very quiet, saw some birds.
Follow the instructions and you won’t have any issues (fantastic and detailed). We left a bit early with the bugs after us! One lovely bee seemed to want to go home with us after hanging out on my car for so long! Thanks for making your space available. I’ll continue to take my rescues and fosters here!
Beautiful spot! I appreciate the map, dog treats, WiFi access, trash cans for poop bags. Can't wait to return.
Excellent communication and arrival details, lovely grounds to walk and sniff! There’s a wonderful welcome area with a much appreciated out house for humans :-) There’s lovely chaise lounges in the shade, overlooking an amazing view. We hope to be back, and look forward to seeing how the flora and fauna changes through the seasons.
Great description/ directions to reach the property! My dog and I had a great time on the property. Well kept, clean, everything as described.
So lovely! Will definitely be back. Thanks for being such a thoughtful host!
Instructions were exactly as described so easy to find! We took our two pups early in the morning and it was gorgeous. They loved running around and walking on the path. Thanks so much for opening up your space for this, will definitely be back!
My pup had fun!
This was our first time using Sniffspot and my dog loved exploring the paths. Instructions to get there were very clear and easy to follow. Would come again!
Property was easy to find based on directions given by host and the actual Sniffspot was amazing! Plenty of areas to explore and although not fenced we felt very comfortable going off leash. We will definitely be back soon!
Heads up!!! Follow the map-link in the email sent to you upon booking. My apple maps sent me to Quail Ranch in Simi Valley (wrong one) when I entered it manually, so I was 50mins late! Luckily no one had booked after me so I managed to book an extra hour.
It is a lovely spot. There are a lot of sheer
drops with an almost panoramic view and loads of space. My dog loved it and was exhausted after 30mins. A note for dog-reactive dogs - The owner's dogs barked a lot from the house and you have to pass them to get from parking to the sniff spot.
Had a wonderful time! Great views lots of space for fetch
This is our second time here. Such a great spot!
Wonderful wide open place with views! We went during the heat if the day which was tough on one dogs paws - but that's on us! We had an earlier time but we chose sleep - like idiots. On hot days choose early morning or early evening. Our dogs LOVED being able to roam free and went for a few quick runs down the hills. I am so excited to come back now our rescues know we aren't taking them somewhere to dump them! So they won't be so panicked for the 1st hour! Bring a light picnic, water for the pups, lean back and e joy the view. Letting the pups run free in such a wild place was so great! As my husband said - they also get so many GREAT signals on sniff radio as they gaze out at the view themselves. We brought some high value treats to be sure they would come back when called- juuuuusssttt in case. Our Carolina dog looked like she may have had ideas for just a second 🤣 Love this place and we will be back soon!
SUCH A BEAUTIFUL SPOT. Just enough shade and plenty of privacy for a wonderful afternoon out, the directions were clear and the spot was easy to get to (make sure you bring grippy shoes and drive a car that can handle inclines!). Thank you for a wonderful day on your ranch :)
We had a great time! ☺️
Lots of space and a good little hiking trail
Very clean property, glad we drove truck & went in AM as I can how hot it can quickly get this time of year. Bit steeper terrain than expected, will def wear hiking boots instead of sneakers next time. Great outlet for dogs to get ranch setting off leash experience!
Great spot!! Went on a hot day so I look forward to going back when it is a little cooler!
This place is a dream for reactive dogs and their owners. We’re usually relegated to industrial parks on the weekends. To say we upgraded our view with this spot is an understatement!
Super clear directions upon reservation. Take heed and get your car in low gear for the driveway. Boots with good traction are a good idea, too. I wore trail running shoes and still wished I had more grip at times.
This is a haven. Our first SniffSpot and it’s set a really high bar.
Follow them on social to know when they’re opening spots! Get in quick before I beat you to it!
Super beautiful and peaceful ranch. So many birds and my dog loved running around and smelling everything.
Amazing spot! I forgot my dogs’ hiking booties so sadly we couldn’t stay long because the ground was too hot for them. the place is beautiful, clean, and I just wish we could have stayed longer! Will definitely book again and be prepared. Highly recommend this spot!
Had a great time! Lots of dirt!
We had a great visit. My pup was very happy being able to sniff and roam as she pleased. For dog mom and dad, the place was beautiful to be in. It was also nice not to have to worry about running into any other dogs. Instructions to get to the property were super helpful. We really appreciated the opportunity to spend time here.
Beautiful property and great amenities!
Great off the beaten path spot! My pup (a Husky/German Shepherd mix) thoroughly enjoyed himself. Highly recommend that you drive there in a Jeep or truck as the drive can get a lil bumpy. Also, you should most definitely wear a tennis shoe with good tread as some areas of the property can be a lil steep and you may slide while walking down in som dirt areas.
Thank you again for allowing our blue heeler and Maltese to visit your beautiful land
my dogs love this spot...and it's a testament to how long they sleep when we get home. ample shade, ample room to run, just a great spot for reactive dogs!
So thankful to have this piece of nature shared with us and our pup! Thank you so much for opening up your property for the community - there is nowhere we'd rather take our corgi!
Absolutely amazing, we had just the most wonderful time. It’s so gorgeous, there’s so much space and Sadie had the best time chasing lizards :) thank you!!
Love love love this place!! Seriously perfect, my pup had an amazing time and the view was to die for!! Best Sniffspot experience ever, thank you so so much!
This is a beautiful place with an even better view. The driveway is steep as she clearly states, my volt almost didn't make it but mustered up enough power to get up. Follow the directions, and you'll have no problem and a very nice time. There is a nice welcome table set up, with unexpected extras for you and your dog.
Once we got to the off leash area, it was like my dog knew he was okay to relax and be free. My old, reactive dog got to experience off-leash freedom for the first time! For that I am so grateful. He mostly sniffed and meandered, and was ready to leave before our time was up. But he made the best out if it in his own way and that's what it's all about.
I will definitely be back with my dogs!
First time doing this and visiting. Absolutely loved this spot! Our dogs enjoyed running around and exploring off leash which they can't normally do! This location was very clean and the directions were great. This is our new favorite spot. So peaceful too.
Was easy to find, and property is easy to navigate once you get the lay of the land. I arrived early, so I waited at the bottom of the driveway so as to not disrupt someone else's appointment/experience.
For owners of dogs who are very sensitive/high arousal/reactive, there are chickens in a coop in the shade next to the house, but they are pretty inconspicuous. It's a calm and quiet environment. I was leaving just as someone arrived on the property and there was a dog indoors that barked once, for anyone who needs to manage their sound sensitive dogs. They were not visible.
I am so thrilled I was able to give my sweet, shy dog this private experience on a beautiful and tranquil ranch. It was a wonderful reprieve to be able to let him roam and explore off leash without having to constantly anticipate other folks and their dogs. Thank you Jen for opening up your beautiful haven to other people to enjoy. It was amazing to watch my dog blossom and be so carefree and happy.
This place is heaven! We had so much fun and the ranch is even more beautiful than we could have imagined. An absolutely perfect morning. We can’t wait to come back!
The directions say keep gong until you reach a sign that reads “Private Property”- they aren’t kidding! Once there, all was well. The area is be and quiet. My dog loved it. After a while, he was venturing into the safe. Having him in a safe natural setting was my wish! Thank you!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful land on SniffSpot. My dog started crying like I’ve never seen him once he realized we were at Quail View. He had such a great time
Loved it! It’s very nice being able to let the dogs sniff and run around freely 🥰
Gorgeous location. My pups and I had a great time & would love to go back!
Great location. Clean and easy to navigate for dogs and humans
Very well thought out instructions and gorgeous area! We really appreciated the map and many spots to sit and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Can't wait to come back again soon!
Such a beautiful and serene location. We definitely plan on coming back. The pups had a blast!
Great sniffspot. My dog turbo loves being off leash here. Crisp air, quiet and clean. Thank you guys.
Beautiful and peaceful spot. Enjoyed the view and quietness of the wind blowing through the trees. Oh and the dogs enjoyed the open trail. Brisk walk but work bringing a lunch on the table and enjoy the views.
We love coming here! Beau runs around sniffing all the bushes, we throw a ball for him, play chase, and hike around the property. We live in an apartment and go for several long walk a day, but nothing compares to Beau being able to run free! Numerous lounge chairs and tables with chairs dot the property so you can relax and take in this idealic property. Today was hot, and we were glad we brought water and a water bowl for Beau. Our host had sunscreen on the Welcome Table...Thank you!!!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful property!!!!
Great location, plenty of space for my dog to run around and sniff safely. So grateful for the owners to share their property with us. Hope to be back again soon ! We did a 1.5 hour time slot which gave us plenty of time to explore and sit/relax. Directions were exactly as described and easy to follow.
A nice place to allow the pups off leash. A short little hike and well maintained area in the middle of picturesque nature. Dogs got tuckered out.
Directions to the site were excellent, thank you.
We had an amazing time. It’s a magical place that our dogs loved! So much to explore.
Such a gorgeous spot and my dogs loved it!
This was such a peaceful spot to visit. We planned to hike, but my pup wasn't in the mood for it, so we just relaxed on the chaise on the patio and enjoyed the silence and the views.
Such a beautiful space for my 2 dogs to roam about. It's exactly as described in the listing/pictures and my family and I enjoyed my visit so much! Since it's the summer, it was quite hot until 5PM but there is some shade here and there!
Awesome spot! The detailed directions made it easy to locate, and all the thought out extras around the spot were great. We made the mistake of coming in the afternoon on a warm day, so the ground was a little too toasty for our pups' paws. We will definitely be back on a cooler day though!
My two dogs loved the area! I was very impressed with the view and openness. if you have an active dog, they will love this sniff spot! It was private, had shade, and multiple picnic areas. I will definitely be coming back soon!
Beau and Cocoa had SO MUCH fun being able to run free and explore!! The kids enjoyed it also and we will definitely be back to visit again! Highly recommended!
Gorgeous views, plenty of room to run, and all the necessities in case we forgot anything at home. That hill driving in was a little treacherous, but this place is worth it! Our dog will be sleeping well tonight.
My dogs enjoyed exploring the area! Very beautiful!
We had a great time! The spot was spacious and all the amenities (sunscreen, poop bags, wifi, etc) were there as described. No issues reaching the spot with our Toyota Corolla. It was in the 90s when we went so a bit hot for the dogs, but we will be back especially in cooler weather!
Such a great space! Our dogs had a blast and there were so many nice places to sit and relax. Will definitely come again. Thank you!
Thank you, Kash and I always enjoy visiting!
Serene open space to let your dog(s) run and play.
Todays adventure at Quail View Ranch was great! Me and my dog had an amazing time connecting with the nature, and we didn't have to worry about running into any other dogs or any kind of troubles, of course! This is an excellent playground for any type of dog, everything was super convenient, plenty of space to run and sniff. We had fun! I did not want to leave.
Great spot, our two dogs loved this place. Very clean, nice table and chairs with shade. We will definitely make this a regular routine.
just lovely! i have an elderly dog who likes exploring on his own and a younger reactionary dog that enjoys running and exploring but we cant take her hiking because we always fear her reaction to off leash dogs. this place was a godsend. both our pups and my husband and i has a fabulous time. the hubby’s first comment after we got in the car: “so when are we coming back?” love this place and love them for opening up their land to us. THANK YOU for your generosity. also great instructions and tips for making it an A+ experience.
My foster dog and I had a lovely time visiting! It is such a peaceful setting to explore, and my dog quite enjoyed all the smells (and chasing the occasional lizard!). This was a fantastic option for a nice long-line meander without needing to be vigilant about running into other dogs or people. We will definitely be back!
Thank you for opening up this amazing spot, Jen! Our dog thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful and peaceful space. We’ve already discussed coming back with my brother’s family and their dog. Can’t wait to return!
Awesome, safe environment
Loved this place will be back
We took our 2 boxers and it was a great spot for the dogs. It was like a mini hike with beautiful scenery!
Loved taking our dog here. Thanks so much, we’ll be back!
Jen was great to be in contact with once I reserved my spot. Everything was as stated on the site and app. It's amazed me and my wife that Jen and her family would be so generous and kind to open up their home for Sniffspot. Our dogs had a blast running around the property and we had a lovely time just enjoying the breathtaking view. I must be honest, I was hesitant to leave a review because I don't want this place to become crowded! But we thought of Jen and her family and wanted to let them know how grateful we are for such a place. It's truly a gem. Thank you guys!
Great place to take my leash reactive dog. Beautiful setting.
What a great spot to let your dog roam! Lots of room to run, sniff and play, with great views for the humans. Super clean with no smell at all. Jen’s directions are perfect. Lucas had a great time and so did we! Thanks Jen. We’ll be back.
I can't say enough good things about this wonderful place. Serenity is a good word to describe how I feel when I am here, and the dog loves it!
This place is so peaceful and beautiful, the dogs loved sniffing all the sniffs and exploring the grounds. Very good directions on how to get there and where to go once you arrive. It was our first time trying something like this and will definitely be back.
our dogs love this place
Such a beautiful location. Our dogs enjoyed exploring off-leash!
Beautiful property! Such a peaceful and magical place. The dogs loved every minute of it. There were clear signs around the property and very organized. We will definitely be back. Thank you Jen 🙏🏽
Getting there is part of the adventure. We took 3 dogs and they all had great fun exploring. The initial climb is steep but the rest is a super easy short hike with 2 flat areas. Plenty shade, plenty places to sit.
Great spot, easy to follow directions, would highly recommend! Will be back soon again!
What a great spot! Our dogs loved it, they had a blast running around and 'investigating' everything. The views were lovely, and there were places for us to sit and relax. We can't wait to go back!
Such a fun place to bring Kash! He isn’t so great with other people or Dog friends so it’s nice to have the privacy to let him roam and play. Recommend to any and everyone whenever I get the chance!
I have a leash reactive dog and coming to Quail Ranch has been great for her! I can work on recall with her and also enjoy a lovely environment as well.
Lovely place. Very peaceful. Enjoyed the various seating areas placed around the property.
Love this place and so do my dogs!
Another beautiful day at Sniffspot! It’s a great place to train your dog and also enjoy nature...
It was a clean and well-kept property. Easy to find using the directions provided by the host. The area was slightly small for our four large dogs for a two hour visit. Overall, it was a good experience for the dogs. We are not sure if there’s a restroom available for guests.
Nice location and surroundings. The property may have the acreage but I have to agree that the walking area was very, very small and was completed rather quickly with plenty of time to spare. It would be okay if you were in the area and wanted your dog to walk off leash and wanted to take a scenic route to bet ther but $18 an hour is way too much. I'd consider going to the park off Camarillo Springs and let dog go off leash for $3 instead. But hey, I had to check it out the reviews were great.
I so much enjoyed this beautiful natural spot with my two dogs. I have already made another reservation. The road is steep going up with your car and walking down (a very short walk) to the designated area for your dog you need good shoes especially with my dogs who tend to pull. We loved it and could work on training and playing ball etc. I would definitely recommend Jen's dog paradise (enjoyable for people too)!
great fun and beautiful space for the dogos to sniff around and expel some energy. You’ll definitely love it.
Really nice afternoon spent thanks to this beautiful green land. The landscape is breathtaking. We appreciated the little attention when starting the trail with the dog treats disposed on the table! Easy to find the spot thanks to the detailled direction!
Always great to visit!
First time in a long time our two dogs have been off leash chasing a ball -- it was good to see them having fun !
A lovely, peaceful spot . We will be back :)
Absolutely lovely spot 🧡 Our pups had fun!
Great spot to let the dogs run. Thank you.
I was late getting there, couldn’t access the directions went I got there. spent the rest of the time driving around looking for the place, no signs or anything.
Amazing and beautiful sniffspot! This was my first sniffspot ever and Jen made it great. Directions were extremely clear and the place is beautiful. We’ll be back!
Jen’s spot was absolutely lovely. My puppy had an amazing time. It was great to see her being able to roam free and explore. We live in a city apartment and wanted to be around nature and have an open space for her to enjoy. Jen’s spot was great because we were able to be safe during these times when also having a lot of fun. I definitely would come back because we all had a blast!
Wonderful, peaceful spot for dogs and humans. We reserved only 1/2 hour but I plan to reserve full hour next time and have a picnic too!
This place is great! Nice flat area for playing fetch with your dogs and plenty of seating areas throughout the property. Small trail to hike along as well! Will be coming back again very soon!
Such a fun little spot to just let your dog free and roam around! Definitely will come back again!
Beautiful spot with plenty of room for pups to run free. Beautiful views. Chaise lounge chairs for humans while the dogs run. I look forward to returning.
Great Location! My two dogs (and family) loved exploring all 5 acres. Already booked for next week!
The location was a bit hard to find and smaller than I expected, but it is the perfect place for us to train our pups for off leash activities. It was clean, quiet, and secluded. We look forward to coming back soon.
My dog loved it! There were lots of smells for her and a nice table for us to rest in the shade.
My dogs enjoyed running around and sniffing. Will visit again!
We LOVE Quail View Ranch!
It was such a wonderful experience for a reactive pup! We loved not having to worry about seeing other dogs or people on our walk and this was a huge property to explore! We are looking forward to coming back soon!
My pups and fam had so much fun!! Places to sit, multiple places to explore off the pathways. Definitely going again and this time with some lunch! Our dogs have never gone on a hiking trail as one of them can be very reactive with other animals/people so this was the best alternative.
We have 2 dogs with mobility issues who nonetheless LOVE hikes. This was perfect. The loop takes about 30 minutes to do, and with dogs who stop every 10 steps to sniff, rest and drink water, the whole thing took about 40 minutes. Beautiful views, lots of resting places, and very do-able. We all had a great time!
Jen was very thoughtful to let us know that the rates had changed after we booked. That was very helpful.
Jane has very good instructions - a little bit scare going up the hill but it was not an issue :) . I thought the walk will be longer . The trails are not that long but Minnie loved it. we did many rounds she did as many zoomies and she could! She is a rescue, dog reactive so she really enjoyed having the place for herself and I didn’t have to worry about dogs either so it was nice stress free time - I will definitively go back ! Thanks !
Beautiful place! The directions were very helpful. It's like a private hiking trail. The dogs very much enjoyed sniffing around. It's quite dusty so be prepared for dirty dogs (that is, if your dog is like mine and runs around like a crazy person after her ball). Great adventure, thank you!
This place has been a dream come true. Our dog is dog aggressive but is very well trained. So even though she can be off leash we can never risk it because we don’t want to encounter other dogs. But Jen’s sniff spot is perfect. It gives our apartment pitbull a place she can run an explore safely. And it was such a beautiful place and a breath of fresh air. Thank you for having us! We can’t wait to be regulars!
Directions were thorough and made it a very easy and seamless
This was our first time using sniff spot and it was a great experience! Directions and instructions from Jen were all very clear, thoughtful and helpful. We had three dogs between me and my friend and they had a blast! The location has trees and bushes for the dogs to sniff around and play in. They loved running in circles around the area and chasing each other. The bigger dogs were around 30lbs and they had enough space to get going fast as they chased each other. Definitely recommend Quail View Ranch if you are thinking about booking a sniff spot.
A great place to bring our German Shepherd. She loved the big open flat space to run for her ball, where she could run at full tilt. Short hiking loop which we did a couple of times but she was more interested in running for her ball. Lovely, quiet place in nature - so nice to be out of the city in an area where she can be off-leash with no other dogs. Nice set-up with picnic tables. A long drive for us to get there but will come again. Thank you!
Again a lovely experience. Be back soon!
This was SUCH a fun experience! Thank you so much for having us. We'd love to return! :)
Happy DOG, happy LIFE! The smile on our dog says it all. The spot is indeed a "sniff spot" and our pup ran around with glee trying to experience it all. It was quiet, peaceful and beautiful. We sat in the shade and had a sandwich. It's a short little hike but so wonderful to be the solitary folks there. Thank you!!! We'll be back.
Ollie had so much fun exploring this area and running around. The directions to the sniff spot were clear and the map at the location was helpful. Thank you so much.
This was my second visit to this wonderful place. I can't say enough good things about it. I love it and so does my dog.
We loved coming to Quail View Ranch! This place is so peaceful, well kept and clean. There are a few picnic tables under trees along the trail and we felt very welcomed by our host. Our dog had the best time and her tail was wagging like crazy. Great place for off-leash fun!!
This is a lovely spot where our dog could run around and play, and we could enjoy the scenery. I would definitely recommend this if you have a dog with good recall who needs exercise! It was good for our mental health to visit such a peaceful and quiet place. We will be back.
We enjoyed our visit to sniffspot. We didn't have to worry about running into other dogs. That alone was priceless since our dog is reactive. The directions were very clear which made the ranch easy to find. We will be back.
Our family had a great time walking and playing on your property. The dogs loved sniffing everything. We can’t wait to come back.
Beautiful, private location! My Pitbull pup had so much space to roam around freely, she was surprisingly tired within 15-20 min. The views were a plus!
Beautiful views. I loved how private it was. Signs and directions clearly marked. I was puzzled by “ park by orange tree” direction, and was looking for a orange colored tree, but then I realized it is orange as in fruit tree :)
Good location to walk around off leash. Graded trails and lots of things to sniff and mark. Multiple seating areas along the way to take a break and let them roam while you soak in the Mountain View’s. Not as big as I expected and gate at the bottom allows for an easy escape. Definitely recommend you give it a try just be mindful of the gate.
I would first like to say the location was beautiful and the directions were very clear. The description of the trail was misleading though. It stated this property is on 10 acres of land but the trail it’s self took only 20min to complete (that’s hiking slowly). A lot of the trail was steep and had lose gravel which makes it really unsafe for most families with children and elderly parents. It was helpful a map was provided as we weren’t sure if we really covered the entire trail, but we soon did after re confirming with the map. There is a part of a trail that leads to a pole gate which has access to the main road. This is a concern for your dogs that are off leash and may wonder onto to the small road. There was a neighbor that was curious as to why we were coming from the gate and thought we were tresspassing and wanted to call their neighbor to be sure since he was unfamiliar with snif spot. It wasn’t a great experience, not relaxing and not long enough to fill the hour we paid. My mom ending up falling ad scraping her knee on the lose gravel. I would say if you’re a city person looking for a quick off leash experience then go for it but if you’re a local looking for a new trail for your dogs, then I don’t think this is it.
Our dogs Bella and Sunny had the best time at Quail View Ranch! Bella tends to get distracted while walking on public trails, Jen's Ranch is truly an oasis. We were able to unleash Bella without her running away from us. I appreciated the cleanliness and privacy. I highly recommend Quail View Ranch!
Quail View Ranch was a great Sniffspot — quiet, scenic, beautifully located, and full of interesting smells for our dog. She enjoyed sniffing around while we enjoyed the views and some birdwatching. The hills were fairly steep and gravelly, so I'd keep that in mind if you have a dog who sometimes pulls on leash (ours does).
Reactive Dogs: Our dog is dog reactive and can be sensitive to pretty much anything dog sized (big or small) that moves too fast, so she got excited when a rabbit bounded across the trail and into a bush at one point. She was fine with all the quail, though. Just something to beware of.
Everything about this Sniffspot is a well done! The directions are accurate and helpful. The spot itself is well maintained and peaceful. My dog loved walking the trails off leash and getting some fetch in flat area of the spot.
We had such an amazing time on this gorgeous property. We packed a lunch and eat after we did some of the grounds with our pups, 2-year-old Husky/Shepherd mix siblings. Our pups absolutely loved running up and down the hills and through the grassy land, they tired out pretty quickly, which is the main objective. It is so quiet and serene out there. Jen is a great host, very sweet. The directions were perfect and we found the place easily. We will definitely be returning soon.
Fresh water for the dogs, and plenty of beautiful spots to picnic and enjoy the views. We will definitely be returning. It would be hard to find a place better than this when you seek open space with isolation from other people and dogs.
This is a great property with different levels. Below the house is a nice big area with a picnic table and large water bowl. If you are adventurous, you can wander among lots of hills and books and crannies and give yourself a workout too!
This property is everything I want in a sniffspot and thought didn't exist in the LA area. It's a wide open area with its own trail system along the hillside, and so there are tons of places to walk, let your dog explore and, when you get tired, just sit and read or just chill while your dog sniffs. The hosts were super lovely and easy to communicate with.
I took my dog here for her two year adoption anniversary and she had literally the best day of her life. I will be coming back again and often as it's not only a fun place for me and my dog but also the perfect place to train off-leash skills.
Note that the owners have dogs and a chicken coop, but they were put away and their house is on top of a hill and generally set off from the area we were. As a courtesy I kept my dog on a long leash when we were near the house, so you might want to do the same if your dog is reactive to dogs/chickens.
Serenity was such a wonderful place for Watson to visit on a beautiful morning. The trails were great and the views were stunning!! Watson had so many things to see and smell! Next time we will take horizontal pictures to post!
My dog and I very much enjoyed our first time at Enjoy Serenity Sniffspot. It is nestled in the beautiful Santa Monica Mountains, and is quiet and peaceful. To get there, you have to travel a little ways on a dirt road and up a steep driveway but it was no problem, even in my minivan. Our host, Jen, greeted us and oriented us to the property and off we went. My dog loved exploring and sniffing around off leash. There are plenty of places to sit on benches and enjoy the surroundings. There is also a picnic table and Jen provided water for the dog. There are a few trails that aren’t super long but we had fun just roaming around. There are lots of boulders and logs, perfect for dogs who like to “climb”. The property is not fenced in so may not be suitable for adventurous dogs who like to run off, but it’s perfect for dogs that have a good recall or don’t run away. The host has chickens that are put away in a coop, and the coop is far enough away from the area where I had my dog off-leash that she wasn’t tempted to check out the chickens. It was a perfect outing for us, and we will definitely be back.
My dogs are so happy! It is a lovely property and Jen is very cordial. Will def be back!
