K9grammy's off leash fun spot

DEEP SNOW HERE! AT LEAST A FOOT OUT BY THE GATE. WOULD SUGGEST WAIT UNTIL WE GET SOME WARMER WEATHER AND RAIN. WEATHER ALERT: If you are checking the weather online check the Ferndale (98248) weather. The Bellingham weather stops at the Smith Road. My prevailing wind is from the South BUT I do get the cold NE wind from Canada. NOTE: I have a new young dog who is still learning about socialization and is a bit on the vocal side. I apologize if this is a problem for your dogs. I will try to keep her under control. This is an acreage area which formerly held dog events; barn hunt, earth dog, carting, rally, obedience, tracking and nose work. The off leash area was set up for the dogs to have a place to run and play safely away from the other dogs when not working. This is all sandy loam so no standing water even when it rains. There is a water faucet down by the smaller barn (west side). You are welcome to fill your dogs bowls. Just be sure you turn the water off after. I have put some folding chairs just inside the big door of the barn. You are welcome to use them. I have also put a shovel out there so you can fill in any holes your dog digs. It is important you put balls back in the crate, they do not do well under the mower (the mower doesn't like it either. Please fill in any large holes your dog digs, so my mower doesn't bog down in one. The garden is done for this year so if you want a bit more room to run your dogs, you may close the 2 big gates and let your dog run in the "parking area". It is all fully fenced. Be aware, the big gate into the back pasture does have a gap under it. THE BACK PASTURE IS OFF LIMITS THERE IS LIVESTOCK BACK THERE! PLEASE PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOG EVEN IN THE BIG AREA. THANK YOU!!!

Natural wonderland for exploration!

The fencing is very secure here. This spot is over 1+ acres. The middle area is mostly wooded with some semblance of a trail throughout, though its mostly just left in its natural state so you may have to step over some fallen logs while wandering about. It is long and narrow shaped. Each end has a grassy more open area. The whole area stays reletively dry year round due to the tree cover. Not a ton of open grass space for far throwing fetch, but lots of space for dogs to run and explore in a narutal feeling setting, and fetch could be played in the grassy area closest to where you enter as there is a 50+ throwing distance or so there. All of our fencing is 5+ feet tall, just installed this last year so very sturdy. It runs pretty close to the ground so even small dogs should be safe. There is a double wide gate to enter. Please try to do your best to pick up after your own dogs waste. None of our own animals use this space to it remains nice for all who visit. There is no water access here so also please bring your own water and dish for your dog to stay hydrated while they play. There are not usually other dogs visible from this space. A neighbor a few houses down has 2 dogs that are sometimes out but can only be seen through the trees in one 10' linear span of fence along my space. If anyone is walking a dog along the road, they would be visible through the trees from that side of fencing, but again from a distance, and rarely a dog may be out in another fenced area of my property as a couple of my renters who also live here have dogs in other fenced yards so when they are home they may be out. But they dont share a direct fenceline so would never be nose to nose with your dogs. And I will always have my dogs inside if you have booked a day in advance, and will try my best to have them inside if im able during a same day reservation. If you are worried about other dogs because yours are reactive to possibly seeing other dogs nearby and its a same day reservation, please message me ahead of time so I can either make sure there wont be any other dogs around at that time on my property for sure, or let you know a time when that could be the case if its not possible during the time you reserved origionally. Thanks!

It's a Dog's World! Room to Run and Have Fun!

** 2/10/2023: Your dog WILL get MUDDY - my yard has nowhere near as much grass as it used to. Feel free to spray your dog(s) off with the hose and/or use the towels provided. ** 8/26/2022: I just started offering memberships - please sign up if you're interested and we'll see how this goes. You can choose 2, 4, or 8 hours/month. ** 8/12/2022: I just updated my spot settings to allow a timeslot to be booked no more than 14 days into the future. (Although preferably within a few days/one week is best - my spot's day-to-day accessibility changes often!) So, if it looks like my spot is closed, it's not! It's just no longer showing availability so far into the future. ** Thank you for continuing to leave a review every time you visit and add photos - it helps a lot, and I LOVE seeing the photos of all the cute dogs enjoying the yard! I have quite a big yard for this area. It is fully enclosed by a 6' wooden fence. Between the yard and the patio the total area is roughly 3200 sq feet. I have a rockery that dogs love to run up and down, juniper bushes, a large covered and uncovered patio area, a kiddie pool in the hot weather, 2 water bowls (and a hose for replenishing the water/pool if needed), lots of tennis balls and toys, and a large perimeter to sniff! There is a bench, small table, and some Adirondack chairs in the backyard (and more chairs and a larger table up on the patio) for the humans... feel free to move them around as you wish! There is plenty of space to throw balls and toys; if you have mobility issues and cannot go down into the backyard, you can stay up on the patio and have your dog bring the ball back to you. Most dogs love to run up & down the rockery! Your dog(s) will be very tired and happy by the end of the Sniff! Side note: I do dog-sitting, dog walks, and drop-in visits through Rover, and I always love to meet new doggos if they are friendly! :) Thanks and enjoy the time with your dog(s)!!

FAQ about our Washington dog parks

Are public dog parks good for dogs?

It is important for dogs to have off leash exercise to sniff and run. Letting dogs off leash in city parks is dangerous and can lead to issues with Animal Control. So public dog parks are a legal way to let dogs have off leash exercise. But the free and open nature of public dog parks has drawbacks. There could be aggressive dogs, disease transmission and cleanliness issues, since any given public dog park facility may not be cleaned regularly. And other adult dog owners are often inattentive of their dogs. 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.

How do I know if a dog park works for my dog?

Dogs enjoy Sniffspot dog parks for all kinds of different reasons and goals, spanning from exercise to training or even training classes and much more. Whatever your primary goals, there is a Sniffspot dog park for you. There are many different types of spots, anything from a training yard to a field to a beautiful two-acre, fenced, off-leash park, or, for instance, a 1-acre, lighted facility. Some even have niche amenities, such as a park splash pad and dog-friendly potable water fountains.
You can filter Sniffspot dog parks by square foot size, fencing and distractions. If your dog doesn't have a good recall, you can visit one of our fully fenced dog parks. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our off leash areas where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby. You can also filter locations to avoid other domestic animals and people. Each listing also includes the park hours of operation. By reading reviews you can understand the status of condition, for example, if a section of the fence is in poor condition or there are any park maintenance issues.

Are Sniffspot dog parks safe?

While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, disease transmission and general cleanliness - often as much an issue with the person in charge as with their dog - Sniffspot dog parks are much safer than public dog parks. With Sniffspot all bookings are private where the only park users are the dog owners and dogs they bring with them. Additionally, 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 and many spots have been reviewed hundreds of times. Make sure to check weather conditions before visiting.

Is a Sniffspot dog park an off leash area?

Yes. Many Sniffspot dog parks are designed to be a designated off-leash area. However, all dogs are different and we expect our guests to be safe and responsible, especially if their dogs do not have good voice control or if their dogs do not always listen to owner commands. Off leash dogs should always stay within the designated, fenced, off-leash dog area. This is important to have an enjoyable time.

Will there be other dogs at the Sniffspot dog park at the same time as me?

Sniffspot only allows one booking at a time and any host dogs are required to be kept away from the spot during visits. We also enforce 30 min time buffers between bookings.

How can I find Sniffspot dog parks near me?

You can browse all of our dog parks here. You can easily view information about the spots, including open times, park entrance details and current conditions.

How much do Sniffspot dog parks cost?

Each host sets their own price, so you can check the price on the specific Sniffspot dog park listing. Most are between $5 - $15 per dog per hour. Prices vary based on size, fencing and amenities, such as water for dogs, park benches, etc.

What are the requirements to bring my dog to a Sniffspot dog park?

We require that all dogs have basic vaccinations or equivalent titers. We require rabies vaccination, the equivalent of current rabies tags. We do not allow dogs with a bite history. We require that guests sign our waiver and agree to follow park rules and policies before visiting park sites. Adult supervision is required at all times. We do not have limits for dogs per owner or dogs per adult handler. Some hosts set person per visit limits. Dog owners are responsible for picking up pet waste (many dog parks provide pet waste stations).

How can I offer my land as a private dog park?

You can learn more about how you can earn up to $3,000 per month sharing your land here. It is just as lucrative as dog boarding or other dog services, with less work.

What are the requirements for Sniffspot dog park hosts?

Our basic requirements are that the spot be private land that is free of hazards, park clean and park waste is removed regularly. We do not allow unfenced spots that are smaller than 0.5 acres. We do not have requirements for host experience, although many hosts have experience with pet care facility services or pet boarding experience. You can learn more about our requirements here.
