My girl didn’t play much because we didn’t have much time and she wanted to smell everything but I was provided poop bags and was very grateful for that!

The yard was super easy to find and in beautiful neighborhood. The host had two chairs and a water bowl set up for when we arrived. The yard is very well kept and feels very private. The yard also has the perfect amount of shade. My two pups had a fantastic time!! We will definitely be back!

We have a yard for them to play in at home, but sometimes you need a little enrichment for those noses and this was everything my dogs needed! They enjoyed sniffing around and playing in a new dog safe area. Sarah was very kind and provided chairs and water for our dogs upon request. We will definitely be back in the future! ☺️

Shady even in the winter, full of things to smell, different terrain to play on. The hosts set out water and chairs for us before arrival and had great communication. This was the best first experience with Sniffspot. We can’t wait to book again.

The shade the trees provide is perfect. Our dogs had a good time chasing toys and exploring. Both dogs were interested in what was “up the steps”, but listened to us and stayed in the designated area. Thank you for creating a different space for them to “sniff”.

FAQ about our Waco dog parks

Are dog parks good for dogs?
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.
