We have visited this spot 3 times now and will continue to keep coming back. My dog is old and reactive and this gives her a space to explore miles of trails, mostly shaded (depending how far you go) and a little elevation to give her a good workout. Today we saw a huge frog and a deer on trail! We saw no people or other dogs on the DNR land. The new club zoomies area is a lot of fun as well, nice work Preston.
love the open trails, the ponds, and open field! first time coming and it was very very fun and peaceful for sure! thank you for your spot! cant wait to come again!
My dog and I thoroughly enjoyed our time today at Black Pond Farm! My dog, Prince Larry, gets along with other dogs, but he barks non stop when he sees another dog, which is why you we chose to use SniffSpot. Not a single bark the whole time we were at Black Pond Farm!
It's also a beautiful location!
Great spot for a reactive dog, it was nice to take a walk without stressing about seeing someone or another dog.
Nice trail to walk in the woods which ends at a little meadow. There's a garbage can at the entrance which is always appreciated and bug spray too. We could hear a dog barking near the trail entrance but we didn't see it. And the meadow is next to a horse pasture. These things could potentiality be problematic for reactive dogs but we used it as a training opportunity. We would like to come back!
Happy to be back at Black Pond Farm. The dogs enjoyed the new primitive trails and playing on the new flat, open area.
Wow..what a great location. Our dogs absolutely loved all the trails and woods to run in. We will definitely be back😊
This is such a cute sniffspot! My foster dog had a great time walking the trails and playing soccer in the big open space in front of the cottage (brought our own soccer ball). And this spot lives up to it’s name—tranquil, calm, and relaxing! Definitely recommend!
Very tranquil. Didnt see or hear any humans or animals. Great use of space with trails. The trails arent long but they intersect so you can weave through them repeatedly to get more of a walk without feeling too much like you are going in circles. Grass area for fetch which my dog isnt into but I enjoyed the tranquil spot toward the end of our visit and she sniffed around. I plan to come back and see if water is running in the creek. My dog will like that. Nice spots to sit with chairs provided. Thoughtful sniffspot owners.
This is one of my favorite Sniff Spots. I especially love the trails through the woods that allow me to get some exercise along with my dogs
Amazing spot!!! It has something unique to offer because it has trails! If your dog loves exploring, sniffing and off leash freedom, this is the place. Sure, it's also a great place for fetch and seek, but the trails for exploring and sniffing....! My Ringo would love to come back in a heartbeat. No worrying about being blindsided by bikers or other dogs. It's private and secured with brush and fencing. I recommend maybe having your small pup wear footwear or if the doggo has sensitive paws because it's a forest with brush but it has pathways. My big doggo had no issues though and just LOVED it.
SUCH a good spot! Host thought of everything, from sunscreen to berry picking buckets! My dog had the best time romping the meadows and the trails.
Super cool spot with a blend of wooded trails and a slipped yard for fetch. There are thoughtful sitting spots set out by the hosts throughout. We will be back. Thank you
Secluded, woodsy spot with lots of easy-to-navigate trails. Unfortunately, the creek was completely dry - I had hoped it would have a little water remaining for my water-loving retriever, but it has just been too dry. The shade from the trees was welcome though!
Another great visit in preparation of July 4th. Wore the dogs out and made the evening much better for them. Seasonal creek is over for the season but still love this place. Highly recommended.
Great spot. The loop trail was well marked and our dog had fun sniffing about. We played fetch in the yard area. We had a great time.
Truly awesome Sniffspot! Trails through the lush woods and tons of room for my pup to run. Everything you might need provided by the host. A great getaway.
Little piece of heaven for the pups. So many trails to run and woods to enjoy. The creek even during summer has a bit of water for the pups to play with.
Wonderful Sniffspot! My dog Teddy absolutely loves it and it also recharges me. He leaves tired & I leave rejuvenated from walking in the woods. Thank you again for sharing this place.
Wow! An absolutely wonderful Sniffspot! So many trees & trails. My dog Teddy loved running rampant in the forest , and I soaked up the nature (birdsong, green everywhere). The water and rest station was set up nicely. All the posted notes for finding trails, a digging spot & drinking water were clear & welcoming. This is a perfect place for a dog and his/her human. We will return! Thank you for sharing a lovely piece of property.
