    Kirby loved roaming around. Perfect for her. Thanks again

  • Kylie T., Jul 6, 2023

    Had a great time at our first sniff spot!

  • Brooke S., May 27, 2023

    This is a great spot! It had lots of room for my dog to sniff around and explore. We loved it!

  • Stephanie T., Apr 28, 2023

    I used to live 2 houses away from this property years ago, so when I got to it I was skeptical but the pics online looked great, so didn't think much about it. Got in the first gate fine. Next gate (if you can call it that) was a total hassle to deal with, luckily I brought my daughter so she could hang on to our dog and other stuff while I dealt with securing the gate back up. Pics to me, definitely looked different (much larger) and less cluttered. I had to get our dog's ball from numerous places because there was just too much going on in the backyard. And maybe it's just me, but I prefer a spot where I can't see the homeowner and hear them having dinner right inside while we're sitting on their porch, very weird feeling. Again, maybe just me. Also, if your dog is reactive to other dogs, be prepared for 2 beautiful pitties to greet them when you get there. Not for me.

  • Shannon O., Apr 18, 2023

    The backyard was very crowded and I feel like the front fences weren’t secured enough. There were other dogs in the neighborhood and I didn’t feel safe.

  • Donna Z., Apr 3, 2023

    Great place for dogs to play. The covered patio sure came in handy when it started hailing during our visit!

  • Franki T., Apr 1, 2023

    Clean and a good size for our two pups to run around. A lot of smells including resident dogs I'm sure which was a mild distraction. The double glass doors to the back had my anxious pup preoccupied looking for the resident dog(s), but the space is large and clean and good for a romp!

  • Melanie H., Mar 5, 2023

    Clean and comfortable. Enjoyed the ample parking and double gates.

  • Lilah B., Feb 19, 2023

    Visited this spot for the first time today. A really great size, double gates to get through, good parking, places to sit and ample area to explore. Big enough to throw a Chuck-it. Fence very secure around the whole perimeter and no dogs visible once you’re inside. Side note: if you own a reactive dog, there are two dogs in the yard across from where you park. Fully visible when you come and go but not visible once you’re in the actual yard. You can hear them barking once inside but that’s it. My dog is very reactive and we had no issues getting to and from the car just something to keep in mind. We will definitely be back! Thank you!!

  • Victoria S., Feb 11, 2023

    Great place and clean. Loved that water was available. There was a cat that Lady just couldn’t take her eyes off and vice versa lol! But overall it was a great first visit!

A world-class Pacific Northwest natural rainforest adventure awaits you and your best friends on 65-year-old trails, through 2 acres of trails, forest, and open areas for ball throwing and chasing sticks on 8 or 9 terraces. Starting with your choice of 2 entrance paths on the far right and left over a bluff that winds around, to The Landing Pad, through other trails forming circles to run around on and play. At the very bottom, the trails lead to a creek, on the left. The property is partially fenced and has natural barriers. It is bounded by a fence at the top, a fence on one L-shaped side, and a cliff to the creek on the other. The steep hill above the creek and dense brush provide a natural boundary, except for the most adventuresome dogs and their physically fit friends. Bring more than one dog, if possible, because they love to chase each other around the switchback trails. This forest was clear-cut between 65 to 100 years ago and not replanted. So we replanted our forest with 600+ trees. The ground is wood chips, sand, and Pacific Northwest duff with 160ft tall Hemlock, Douglas Fir, Alder, Big Leaf Maple trees, ferns, and native bushes with views of a 20-acre privately owned forested wetland. We prepared it as a Sniffspot for dogs. The lower part that connects to the creek area is not fenced. Rarely seen are animals in the forest, occasional wild rabbits, moles, squirrels, mountain beavers, mice, raccoons, shrews, voles, and weasels. Many birds are here, starlings, chickadees, woodpeckers, hawks, and American Bald Eagles. There are moles thus mole holes because it is a delightfully rugged private area so you must be careful where you step until you get used to the signs of moles and Mountain beaver underground trails crossing the paths, especially along Secret Lane, Lover's Lane, and Hidden Lane. We spent 4+ years removing invasive bushes, cutting down dead trees, and creating places for you to pause, sit, and enjoy your dogs in this natural rainforest 1 mile from the South Sound. When you park you can close the entry gate at the top. Garbage is available on the way out under the Big Leaf Maple tree at the driveway in the large green bin marked "Garbage". The Southeast corner of this Sniffspot where the creek is down a steep embankment, also is part of the property, but descending the steep area is not advisable unless you are fit and feel capable of the climb down and up. We feel a lot of delight here. We welcome you to enjoy it! We continue to work with Mayor Jim Ferrell and his Code Compliance team on the problem regarding the trash strewn on the owner/developer's land comprising most of Lakota Creek Basin. The landowner has set the clean-up start date the week of February 19, 2024 (hasn't started as of 2/27/24). Hope you can visit and enjoy it soon! 2 Starbucks less than 5 minutes away in either direction (bathrooms available there).

If your dog is reactive and you want to, you may wish keep your pup leashed until you are safely at the top of the path. When departing, on either side of the trails, at the top you can pause to leash your dog if you wish. The Sniffspot trails do not interact with the house area.

The arena can be fully enclosed for those rainy days or open the slider to the fully fenced 1/4 acre grass dog Zoomy Pen🐶 The fully enclosed grass “Zoomie Pen”is perfect for zoomie time, puppies and dogs in training, some toy fun, or for dogs without good recall. Just outside the Zoomy Pen is our large play field giving lots of room for Chuckit tossing, parkour on the logs or some nose work fun and mind stimulation.
