What people say about dog parks around Vancleave, Mississippi
Great spot for the dogs to run free!! There’s plenty of seating for the humans, too!
Bring your own water and water bowl- I might have just missed it, but I don’t think there was anywhere for water for the pups.
Hope to be back soon!
The agility equipment was set up and easy to use . The field was very secure and clean. We enjoyed visiting and will come back when the weather cools off some. Frances was quick to answer a question we had when we first came.
First time using sniffspot. Was a great experience. can't wait to book again! My pup stitch had a blast with his first time seeing agility equipment. Thank you so much.
We had a great time with our Bearded Collie, Zoe. Zoe loved all the agility equipment and the chickens fascinated her. There were plenty of water bowls and I noticed a water hose. There were chairs to sit for a break. This is a great place to exercise you dog and learn agility. We will be back. Thank you, Frances!!
Great, clean, quiet area! Loved that half the yard was shaded with big trees. The agility equipment was super cool but my pup had no idea what to do with it so I’ll come more prepared next time!
Directions overall are simple! If you just follow the “training” signs you’ll be set. I wasn’t sure how to lock the gate to the yard so I just took the chain and put it on a nail outside the fence and it worked just fine! My pup wasn’t super curious about getting out though, if he had ran into it the chain would have easily fallen off. I’m sure that was just user error though!
Perfect place for my wonderful furbabies to run out some energy! The agility was hilarious to see them attempt! Def. Will be back!
Amazing spot! We had so much fun trying out agility and then just throwing the ball for a while. Heidi also enjoyed seeing the chickens. Definitely recommend!!!
Such a good little spot, even if your furry friends don’t do agility things! Frances was so kind and came and brought us some treats for our pups, and we chatted for little. The area is very well kept, and the chickens near by are so pretty!! There’s a water spicket, but no bowl (we brought our own!)
Absolutely will be returning again!
Nice shaded areas, lots of open space, very clean and had a nice time. Queso really liked looking at the chickens.
Loved it! Our dogs had a blast and we had no worries because it is fully fenced. Fishing was fun for our 8 year old. Will definitely be back!
This area was perfect! We're a military family in the middle of a move and living out of a hotel means the pups are cooped up so this was a great spot for them to let loose and burn off some energy. I also love being able to have the spot all to ourselves because our dogs can be a bit reactive.
My dog loved the park and ran her heart out, she was wore out! Very nice and clean dog parks and the little pool is a great edition! We will return.
Secluded with a giant space for the dogs! My two had such a nice time. We got to play fetch and they chomped on some sticks. The area was very well maintained! I am sure we’ll be back
My pup absolutely loved this park! The fence is very sturdy and the park is extremely clean and well cared for. This was our second time and there were even more great additions than last time! Highly recommend!
Great place for the dogs to run and sniff around! Immaculately clean. A few well placed trees will allow for shade on sunny days, but plenty of room to run and play fetch! Easy access parking with a double gate entry for safety. We will be going back again for sure!
Such a nice place to let your pups play. Ours had the best time and the host is super nice!!
This was our first visit and it was great! The hammocks and chairs set up near the water are a great addition! Would highly recommend!
Amanda’s backyard is every dog’s dream! Both of my pups loved everything. From the spacious green grass, trails, the pond and the pool. We had so much fun! She is also so thoughtful and made sure there is water and poo bags and a sprayer of course. I highly recommend!
The area was beautiful. The steps to get in the pool were a littleee slippery so just keep it in mind when trying to help your furbabies into the pool.
The pool did not have water in it, and the pond was low, but that is due to lack of rain. I wasn't there for the pool, although I probably would have gotten in just to get cooled off. The dogs had a BLAST! There was no one else there. I paid for 2 hours, but we only lasted 45 minutes due to the heat. Totally worth it to see how much fun they had. So close to home, we'll definitely go again! This survey will not allow me to include photos. I'll try another way.
What other types of private dog parks are available?
Dog water parks
Many hosts have added water features like pools and/or are nearby lakes or rivers.
It is important for dogs to have off leash exercise to sniff and run. But the free and open nature of public dog parks has drawbacks. There could be aggressive dogs, disease transmission and cleanliness issues. For this reason, many dog behaviorists discourage visiting public dog parks and recommend Sniffspot's private dog parks. Sniffspot private dog parks only allow one guest to book at a time and are not open to the public, which solves many of these issues.
Are dog parks safe?
While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks much safer than public dog parks. With Sniffspot 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. 0% of reviews on Sniffspot visits in the Vancleave area are 5 stars.
How do I know if a dog park works for my dog?
You can filter Sniffspot dog parks by fencing and distractions. If your dog doesn't have good recall, you can visit one of our 28 fully fenced dog parks in the area. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our 10 off leash areas where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby. You can also filter locations to avoid other domestic animals and people. We also recommend reading reviews and reaching out to the host with any questions.
