What people say about dog parks around Wichita, Kansas
Great spot, shady in the back so it was comfortable even on a hot day. Thoughtful host brought my dogs some water. Will be back! Thanks again.
Had the best time! It was very clean. Water for the dogs was left out. There were chairs for us to sit in. And the fences were tall enough to keep in our escape artist! We will definitely be visiting again.
Excellent spot! Perfect size for older dogs that want to be outside but don’t have the stamina to do a large area.
My dogs loved it. Water was set out for my pups and they had plenty of sniffs here. Perfect & peaceful view off the road.
This place is truly magical. Rebecca and I drove up to the farmstead flanked by horse pastures and met Jennifer. She pointed us the way to go. We kept our pups on leash as we walked between the horse pastures and got to a large hedge. Once we passed the hedge we were in a huge field surrounded by inpenetrable blackberry bush hedges. The field has great grass and is very peaceful. Walking through the field there is a grassy pathway to the woods that border the river. Our dogs had an amazing time running and sniffing around the woods and playing the river. I found the river to be very slow and placid, so I felt good about the dogs playing in it. Also, Jennifer said there are nesting bald eagles in some of the trees, but we didn't see any this time around. It is truly an amazing place to visit!
This sniff spot was a dream come true for my pupper. Since I moved to the Seattle area 8 months ago she has not been able to run free at all, because she is not good around other dogs. To see her zoom around and prance through the flowers was such a gift! The yard is a nice size, with large areas of both sun and shade, including a covered area beneath the raised deck. As promised, no other dogs were present and entry/exit was private and easy. She especially enjoyed bouncing through the tall grass and flowers in the back and sides. The host was very friendly, and even brought out a gallon of water for the two of us and offered the wi-if password. He was very happy to be able to provide the service, and was genuinely happy that we were there. There were no complications, and I will definitely be returning on a regular basis.
Soba and I loved this spot! The yard is enormous, full of thick grass and fully fenced with a 6 ft fence. It is definitely large enough to throw a tennis ball, but Soba ended up playing with Micaela's dog instead, who is an adorable Cocker Spaniel who is super friendly. I didn't see this, but Micaela let me know that they have a renter who lives in their basement who sometimes comes and goes through the yard, so the yard is not guaranteed to be completely free of humans.
My dogs had a good time scavenging around on the field. They had lots of smells coming from the air because of the horses Nextdoor. We will be back!

Love how open it is! My fur kiddos loved walking the fence line and running with their balls.
There isn’t shade so make sure to bring supplies to cool your babies down. There is a water tank available as well.
We will definitely be back and highly recommend to anyone in the newton/Wichita area to check it out
For anyone wondering if it’s worth driving from Wichita- this is a fantastic spot. Just large enough that your dog(s) get some exercise & explore. Unlike other Sniffspots in Wichita Karen does a good job especially with communication.
AMAZING spot to let the dogs run free and have an awesome time. Even a picnic table in the shade to relax in and I always bring some bones for them to cool down and chew on, so this was absolutely amazing for a break today for us all. Peaceful, birds chirping, and we had a blast and now they're exhausted Thank You for opening up your property for people like us! We travel the country and look for spots just like this to play in, in between our long road trips! My dogs give it a Jumping for Joy, Four Paws Way Up review!
Peaceful country space. My dogs love sniffing in the natural “prairie patch” portion of the park. This is a nice addition to overall enrichment activities for our pet pals.
Ideal if you need an off leash space for a dog that doesn’t thrive in an overcrowded dog park.
Located out near Newton City Airport. Weather was extra windy today - glad I wore a wind jacket and sunglasses. (It is Kansas, after all!) Great communication from owner. Will return.
It worth the effort to come out to this spot because Karen does a fantastic job with communication & keeping the spot clean/well maintained.
Absolutely wonderful! There was SO MUCH SPACE for my pups to sniff and explore. I absolutely will be back sometime in the future, this was a great way to enrich my dogs mind. Now they’re all tuckered out and ready for a great nap!!! The gate is a little hard to find, and kinda hard to put back up, but otherwise I loved this place!!
Lexias backyard is a little oasis and made me forget I was in Kansas! The pups had the FUNNEST time & so did we being able to swim and play with them! Having a dog that’s reactive makes it hard to go to the lake or public dog swimming days so this was perfect for us! Lexia left out dog life vests, towels, and water for the babies and there was even a bathroom for the humans! This was cheaper than a day at a public pool and we had SO MUCH more fun being by ourselves and being able to have the fur children with us. 100/5, this backyard is SO GREAT!! We will def be back!
Was blown away with how nice this property was! Me and my pups really enjoyed swimming and running around the yard! Fence is fully secured and they provide lots of nice accommodations! I cant recommend this place enough!
The dogs and I loved spending time here! It’s a beautiful backyard. Lexia leaves anything you need out for you and the pups ahead of time. It was out first time using Sniffspot but we will definitely visit again! 😊
This place is amazing! Super clean, sturdy fencing, and they offer anything you may need! Will be visiting again ❤️❤️
Really nice spot with toys, a big water bucket, and plenty of shade from some trees. My dog loved it!
A beautiful back yard very open! Sarah was very accommodating and she provided a water hose and big Tupperware for water! We will definitely book again!
What other types of private dog parks are available?
Dog water parks
Many hosts have added water features like pools and/or are nearby lakes or rivers.
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. There could be aggressive dogs, disease transmission and cleanliness issues. 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.
Are dog parks safe?
While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks much safer than public dog parks. With Sniffspot 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. 0% of reviews on Sniffspot visits in the Wichita area are 5 stars.
How do I know if a dog park works for my dog?
You can filter Sniffspot dog parks by fencing and distractions. If your dog doesn't have good recall, you can visit one of our 9 fully fenced dog parks in the area. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our 2 off leash areas where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby. You can also filter locations to avoid other domestic animals and people. We also recommend reading reviews and reaching out to the host with any questions.
