What people say about dog hiking trails around Vista, California

We had a fantastic time at this garden!  There were big trees, a fountain for the dogs to drink from, and a variety of dog toys! The yard was very secure. It was peaceful and lovely, with lots of plants.   As described in the listing, there were dogs in the neighboring yards that were out for short periods f time. My dog loved the friendly dog behind the back fence! We will be returning.

Ileen's Sniffspot was everything I wanted for my 2 large rambunctious puppies! Ileen was an excellent communicator, very friendly, and thoughtful as she had put out dog water bowls for each of my dogs, along with other amenities. The property is large with plenty of space for the dogs to run around. And it's all securely fenced in, I felt safe letting my dogs off leash. There's a nice sitting area as well. The whole visit was easy and smooth. I will definitely be going back. Thanks so much!

This is a big yard with secure fencing. There are a variety of surfaces for the dogs to run on. There are some shaded areas. Ileen is an excellent host with excellent communication. She left us some fresh water and treats and a few other amenities like snacks and water for the humans.

A fun time was had by us and our two dachshunds at Ileen's spot. Comms re: access/parking were smooth and the property was easy to find. The spot had lots of space and interesting nooks and crannies for our dogs to explore. There are multiple animals on property such as birds, cats and dogs but all were kept indoors or in another fenced-in area not accessible by the main sniffspot. There was a good mix of grass, dirt and graveled areas for variety of terrain for the dogs to check out. Ileen was thoughtful of our visit and had snacks & water for us and the doggos, as well as sanitizer and extra dog bags if we needed them. It was a mellow vist and our hour went quickly. The area is spread out nicely and the majority of the space is far enough away from the home so as not to feel like we were infringing on personal space. Looking forward to another visit soon!

Niall had a wonderful time running to his heart’s content in this mown field of several acres. Ian, the host, was prompt, friendly and provided both water and shade. We’ll be back for sure.

FAQ about our Vista dog hiking trails

Are dog hiking trails safe?
While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, inattentive owners, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks are much safer than a city or county park. With a Sniffspot off-leash area 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. 93% of reviews on Sniffspot visits are 5 stars. Our hiking trails tend to be outside the city, which lends to more privacy, but it is also important to follow typical hiking safety precautions, such as potentially having trail maps.

You can also browse by specific amenities, if you are looking for a view or a beach, for instance, or other activities or fun features.
