***Please make sure hose is turned off before you leave! Thank you! ❤️**** A huge backyard with a 6ft privacy fence, Murphy’s playspot is the perfect location for you and your dog! Your dog can enjoy playing fetch, getting zoomies, and sniffing all .35 acres of the backyard. There is also a hose that has been pulled back there for easy access! The on/off tap for the hose is located on the side of the house in the driveway. Getting into the backyard is easy as the latch is on the outside of the fence. However, as mentioned before it is a 6 foot fence, so closing it might be more difficult. A step stool will be provided, and if you’re still worried about not being able to latch it let me know ahead of time. We will make sure you and your dog are safe and secure! The fence has 0 holes, so dogs of any size are welcome. Water bowl, toys, treats, and doggie bags will be provided. We also have a hand built disc golf basket at the back of the yard if you feel like bringing some discs to throw! There is a picnic table with an umbrella for you to relax on, as well as a covered back porch. Please be mindful of the garden! Accidents happen though, so please let me know of any damage so I can tend to it quickly 😊 The wifi information is on the frame on top of the picnic table. We hope you enjoy your play!

If your time overlaps with our landscapers I’ll let you know. They usually come 7:15 am every other Friday and are gone by 7:45/8 am. If you are under 5’9 you may have trouble closing it. A step stool will be provided, but if you’re still worried about not being able to close it let me know. We will 100% make sure your dog is safe from escape! We also have bamboo that we periodically chop down, so there might be pieces of bamboo around. It is non toxic to dogs, but just as an FYI if your dog likes to chew things.
