***Our Sniffspot is open most weekdays and limited weekends. Members get personal notifications about open weekends and up to 25% off our rates!*** Our Spot was on TV! https://www.nbclosangeles.com/investigations/randy-responds/homeowner-rents-out-backyards-to-dog-owners/2900489/ We joined SniffSpot because we have four rescue dogs of our own and we have seen how much they love running from smell to smell on our ranch. We love seeing pictures of other dogs enjoying our ranch as much as our dogs do. We are located in a quiet canyon and only 5 miles from Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks, and the 101 freeway. We offer: • individual reserved appointments for a private visit with your dog • a super-sized rustic dog park to enjoy on or off-leash (we do not have fences) • contact-less visits; you'll receive detailed instructions to our spot prior to arrival • approximately 4-acres of rolling hills, dirt paths, native plants, oak trees, and sniffing spots on our 10-acre ranch reserved just for you and your dog(s) during your visit • an outhouse restroom for your use • multiple benches, chairs, tables, shaded areas, and even chaise lounges • 360-degree views of the Santa Monica Mountains • quiet interrupted by the sounds of quail and numerous other birds chirping • dog waste bags, pooper scooper, and trashcans so you don't have to haul waste home with you • access to our weather station to help you plan your visit www.wunderground.com/dashboard/pws/KCAWESTL52 Our guests have: • enjoyed a leisurely stroll with their dogs while enjoying the views • played with their reactive pup without the worry of other people or other dogs • snapped and shared great photos of their pups • packed a picnic and dined at a table under a large oak tree • played fetch and did some zoomies in the open area • relaxed on a chaise lounge while enjoying the quiet • sniffed, sniffed again, and sniffed some more!

    Second time. Lovely spot and good workout with the hills. My pups did great off leash once again and loved the water running down the mountain.

    First time visiting and we loved it! A little tricky to find (for me) but I was able to turn around down the road and then found the gate quickly after that. Lots of hills. Bring good shoes. I let my dogs off leash once we got to the flat patio part and they did great with recall. I kept the harnesses on just incase though since it was our first time. There was water running through the hill which the dogs loved 🥰. We had fun. Highly recommend this spot and the host is a great communicator.

    Great place for pups to run free, they enjoyed all the sniffs!

  • Cynthia F., Jan 24, 2023

    Good directions, clear layout upon arrival greatly appreciated. We walked all over, my dog had a good sniff and then enjoyed chasing her ball. Flawless first experience with SniffSpot and this location. We will be back, having purchased a membership!

    This was our second visit here and it is one of our favorites! Beautiful area for our boys to run around. Great communication with questions I had as well!

    Such a beautiful area! Our boys had so much fun exploring and playing. Can’t wait to come back!

    Host replied: Look at those two!! Looks like two smiles to me! Thanks so much for visiting and sharing your picture! ❤️

    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!

    Host replied: Happy Happy adorable face! Thank you for visiting us Melody and Xenon! And for sharing your pictures! ❤️

    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!

My family and I love the mountains and we are blessed to live in them with our three rescue dogs, tortoise, and chicken flock.
