55Maria was so nice and so responsive on the app prior to our arrival and so friendly and flexible when we had to modify the reservation timing! Upon arrival, it was so easy to park right in front of the house and easy to see the Sniffspot entrance to the backyard. We were so delighted with the facility. The grass was nice and green and well trimmed. Everything was clean and orderly. The dogs had a blast running around and we used some of the dog toys what a huge selection. Maria provided a cooler with ice cold water and soda for us and it was really appreciated on this hot muggy day. And the dogs had a sparkling clean water bowl. There was an adorable seating area and fire pit, which would be nice on a cooler evening. It was so private we didn’t see any other people, there were no distractions for the dogs. It was such a very nice place. Highly recommended. 
55Very nice yard/set up. The toys were great and the drinks! We’ll be back for another visit.
55Maria’s space was the perfect size for our pup. Very well maintained. The dog toys and refreshments were a perfect complement to the experience! Thank you for giving our little guy a great place to let his energy out!
55The place was so good. The host had a wonderful array of toys and supplies ready for our furry friends, who truly had a fantastic time! Highly recommended!
55Super cute spot ! Max & I enjoyed it! Loved the bowl of water put out and toys (:
55Maria was incredibly accommodating and her yard was also beautifully kept. She kindly offered us drinks and toys for the dogs, which was so thoughtful. We're already looking forward to our next play date! 🥰
55This was a great space for my dachshund puppy. Just the right size. Maria was kind enough to provide toys/treats and also brought out her dogs for few minutes to socialize my puppy. Definitely recommend :)
55very clean yard, love that there is space for all of my 3 dogs to run around. Definitely will be coming back.
55Awesome place for my reactive dog! I have a corgi and GSD! Provided treats/ toys /water for both yourself and pets! Will be coming back here again
55This was our first time using Sniffspot, and I must say we're hooked! Maria and her 2 pups were gracious hosts, and our pup had an absolute blast! There was water, an array of toys, poop bags, and even sanitary wipes. We will be returning, if they'll have us.

(POOL CLOSED FOR REPAIRS-WILL UPDATE WITH OPENING DATE TBD) Come and visit us at Wags & Whiskers Wonderland. Where tails wag fast and wave high, whiskers smile, wet noses sniff, zoomies can zoom and doggie wishes come true! Come alone with your dog, with doggie friends or maybe a doggie birthday "pawty" (pawty packages available). We love being a part of Sniffspot and providing a safe space for dogs to get exercise and explore. I have had reactive dogs and understand the struggles to find fun and safe spaces for them to explore. Come here and enjoy a fully fenced backyard with pool (OPTIONAL EXTRA FEE-POOL IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE YARD BOOKING FEE AND YOU MUST ADD EXTRA). Fence height 4 - 5 feet. Large park like setting with grassy flat area for dogs to romp and play. There are dog bowls available and a hose for water. There is a patio seating area (seasonal) with table and chairs as well as a furnished and seasonally decorated gazebo to sit and enjoy some shade and take some cute photos. We also leave free treats in the gazebo for our furry guests. A large mulberry tree also provides some nice shade with an available hammock (seasonal) to share with your furry friend. There is a heated built in pool, which is separately fenced for safety, and available for use with ADDITIONAL FEE. Dog toys available for in and out of the pool. For pool users we offer several sizes of dog swim vests from XS to XL. I also offer a supply of bug spray and sunscreens. In case of muddy paws there are pet wipes for dogs, hand wipes for human guests and also a first aid kit just in case. There is a large private driveway for parking. Please remember the purpose of Sniffspot...to interact with your dog so please engage with them and supervise them at all times…no dogs should be unattended at any time. My main focus of becoming a host is for the enjoyment, enrichment, benefit and safety of THE DOGS...this is why we have clear rules, boundaries and limitations which we ask that all of our guests respect. Please always ask if you have any questions or need clarification. POOL CLOSED FOR 2023 SEASON - OPENING DATE FOR 2024 SEASON TBD To our pool users...If you have added the pool as an add on, the dogs are all welcome. Their humans (1 adults only per dog) are also allowed to enter with the dog as long as the human is interacting/playing with the dog (if no dog in the pool, then no people in the pool). If your dog has never been in a pool, DO NOT traumatize your dog by just throwing them in and PLEASE USE LIFE VEST (many sizes available) and introduce slowly. I do my best to clean/skim the hair out of the pool between guests IF I am home. Unfortunately, I am not always home and cannot attend to the pool in between, and I apologize in advance if there is hair from a previous guest. I have a robot skimmer which may be floating in the pool to help keep if clean. If it is in the pool, please remove before entering and replace when you are done (there are instructions on how to do that at the pool). If you have a dog that may heavily shed, perhaps brush if possible before attending so that less hair enters the pool. We want to keep it nice and clean for all of our guests so everyone has a positive experience.We also do not want to put extra stress on the pool filter so we can keep it running for everyone to use. I also leave a skimmer net by the pool if needed. FYI...It's NJ so the pool is only open from May until mid September. Please keep this in mind when booking and feel free to message me if you want to check on availability. NOTE: 1) PLEASE DO NOT BRING ANY DOG THAT IS SHOWING ANY SIGNS OF SICKNESS OR ILLESS (DIARRHEA, VOMITING, COUGHING, LETHARGY). ALSO, I KNOW SNIFFSPOT ASKS ABOUT DOGS BEING VACCINATED BUT DOESN'T REQUIRE PROOF. I BEG OF ANY GUEST THAT YOUR DOG PLEASE BE HEALTHY AND FULLY VACCINATED. I HAVE A SPECIAL NEEDS DOG THAT IS IMMUNE COMPROMISED AND I NEED TO PROTECT HIS WELL BEING. 2) Allowed 1-2 adults per dog ONLY. 3) Pool area: Use at your own risk. Pool is 3 - 10ft on the deepest end. No running, diving or food/glass around pool. Please do not leave dogs unattended. 4) Raised deck attached to house not for use by guests. 5) Please return everything to it's proper place where you found it. 6) No alcohol or smoking. 7) Please do not let your dog pee or scratch at the pool equipment (filter/heater) behind the pool. 8) I do have some weekend blocks on the schedule. If you are interested in a specific day/time, please let me know, and I still may be able to accommodate you upon request. 9) I currently have dog limit set to 6 but can accommodate more upon request so please feel free to ask. We can make special accommodations upon request.
