    Thank you for allowing us the use of your yard! DaVinci and Einstein had lots of fun!

  • Jennifer L., Feb 19, 2023

    Wonderful as usual!

  • Ayana G., Jan 27, 2023

    My pup had a wonderful time at shepherd shire. Host was very thoughtful and had water and extra balls for my dog to play with. We will definitely return. Thanks so much Steph for hosting a sniffspot

    Wonderful spot! Fencing wasn't quite as secure as I'd hoped--some small gaps where an ambitious dog could get through--but we had a great time and it was so perfect for dog training.

    My dogs and I love it here! They enjoy exploring the trees and sniffing in the leaves. There’s also a nice size grassy area to run in. It’s also a nice sanctuary for humans. I always feel so calm and peaceful here.

    My dogs had a blast running around! The host left toys, treats, and water bowls out for the dogs and chairs for the humans. The only downside was that the water to the hose is set up on a timer and it was turned off so I couldn’t get water for my dogs. Otherwise, a great spot and we’ll definitely be back.

    Juno had the best time. It was nice and quiet, water and toys were supplied for us, and we would definitely return.

    Lovely yard and house. Grass was green and lush. Shorter grass would have been better, especially for small dogs.

  • Cheyenne D., Aug 24, 2022

    Exactly as described! Host responds to messages quickly. Would visit again!!

    Great spot! Very clean and well kept. They left out water, toys, treats and hand sanitizer!!

Meet your host

Proud parent to four rescues- two dogs and two cats. I know the importance of a private fenced space for your dogs and want to share mine.
