55Another great visit. Love the peace and quiet of the spot.
45This is a beautiful spot. The dogs had a great run. The field is large which meant I could keep the dogs away from the resident horses. Just didn’t want to bother them. Loved hearing the sheep in the distance. A little issue - one of my dogs is a scavenger…and there are egg shells in the field which my dog was very interested is eating. So I needed to keep an eye on him to keep him away from the shells. I am not sure how successful I was!
55Very nice and large open area. The location is easy to find and the details mentioned in the app were correct. We tried out this Sniffspot with our reactive dog. We knew the area is only partially fenced and there will be distractions. Unfortunately, we can't recommend it for very reactive dogs like ours, just due the animals, kids etc. around and the partial fence. But for any non-reactive dog this is a beautiful and large spot perfect for running and playing.
55Great field to run 💕 Thank you for sharing your property.
55I couldn't think of a better spot for my pup to run and roam in. The hosts are so very kind, and had a big tub of water waiting for a thirsty pup at the end of our playtime! there's a ton of open space and a good mix of shade and open areas. will definitely be coming back :)
55Lovely property! The dogs had a great time running through the grass and playing with eachother.

    Host replied: The egg shells are from the Ravens getting eggs from the chickens next door. I keep picking them up but they are persistent little birds

    Host replied: I’m glad you enjoyed the area. In the future if someone messages me they have a reactivate pup, I will make sure the horses are secure in their paddocks and not in the back field near the dog area. Additionally thank you for your patience, it was dinner time and an unusually busy day on the property during your visit. I will do my best to improve your next visit. Thank You for the feedback.

****IMPORTANT: all prices listed are in USD and guests will be charged in USD so it is around 15 canadian*** This is a mostly open area farm field. Space includes a small wooded area within the fenced area. Bathroom available on site in the smaller barn. SMOKE FREE ZONE. Pick up after dogs, garbage bin provided. There are a few seniors visiting with mobility issues which is taken into consideration when there is poop left behind. You can always message me and let me know a general area and I can try to run out and pick it up between the next visit. There are some small gaps in the fence, so this is a great spot for large and medium sized dogs. Not a spot recommended for small dogs or severely reactive. Please keep dogs leashed until it is your time slot and are in the designated area and keep in mind you may pass another dog owner with their dog on a leash leaving or entering the spot. IF YOU CAN NOT CONTROL YOUR DOG ON A LEASH WHEN PASSING ANOTHER DOG PLEASE DO NOT BOOK THIS SPOT. Lots of seniors visit this spot and they may need some extra time to walk to their cars. For the most part spacing between guests has been good. Please read the essential rules the website has suggested in order to keep this a fun and safe place for dogs. Guests can be blocked from booking again if they do not respect the space or who are rude to me. Please check the spot descriptions for all details regarding animals on the property. Do not book after you read the description if you think it is not a proper fit for your dog. My phone number is 2509208914 and my dad's is 2508962860. Text or call if at anytime you need anything. This number is repeated in multiple places, including the welcome message. SPRING AND SUMMER ANNOUNCEMENTS *We will be adding a doggy splash pad and a kiddie pool with fresh water as an add on option. *shade umbrellas are out of storage and I just have to wash them... so they are coming very soon. *I am in the works of creating a full enclosed cat park. So if you are also a cat person or know a cat person please share my other link to book through the Swimply App. Similar to sniff spot but the insurance coverage is slightly different for cats ahah. "Scratch's Spot - Cat Nature Spot" https://swimply.com/pooldetails/70437?utm_source=pdp_share_button&utm_medium=website&utm_campaign=70437. You can also book that spot for puppy training, as it will be a more controlled smaller space 18 ft long. This will have a little drawing table/play kitchen/play house for kids set up in the corner, and chairs. For people who don't have cats you can still book the space and visit my two friendly orange cats. The orange cats on the property are very people/kid friendly. The black/white cats are loving only to immediate family members. Thank you to all our visitors. It's been wonderful seeing so many happy dogs.
