Whether you’re a neighbor looking for a quiet place to play with your dog or a traveler exploring the area, this private dog park offers a tranquil retreat amidst the vibrant urban environment. This spot is woman owned and operated. I have worked for many years to make my neighborhood and my community a better place to live. When I learned recently of SniffSpot, I fully embraced that dogs need a private place to play. So, for the first time ever, what was a private sanctuary is available to rent for a modest fee.
Gorgeous lot at the base of Mt. Humphreys and Snowbowl! Just 15 mins from downtown Flagstaff and 3 minutes off route 180. Stop here for daily play, or pull off on your long road trip on the way to the Grand Canyon!
Almost an acre of pastureland overlooking Jacoby Creek Valley for dogs to sniff, roam, play, and most of all be off leash and in nature. Bring your dog alone for training or bring some dog pals (up to 6 total) to romp and chase and play while you relax. There are balls and sticks, some obstacles, water, and lots to dig. There may be cattle in the adjoining field below, occasionally deer though rarely in the daytime. Chairs are set for a pastoral view, particularly lovely at sunset. We have had a recently installed septic system that has left a largely bald uneven, rocky area that will improve with winter rains. People and cars may go by on the driveway. The spot is all yours when you are there and with respect to reactive dogs, I won't greet you unless we set that up in advance. I want the dogs to feel that this is their space and we won't intrude. Please no smoking or using while visiting. Enjoy!
****IMPORTANT: all prices listed are in USD and guests will be charged in USD*** Available for use is approximately one acre of grass (short and long) with a small section of young native trees. The property is well fenced with 1.5m deer fencing all round. After heavy rains there is sometimes a large pond at the lowest point which is great fun for the dogs. There is a hose and water bowl for you to use. When parking, please don’t block the shared driveway, and be careful not to park too close to the gate so you don’t get stuck. There are some older aerial photos, the blue indicates the property boundaries and the red is where to park. Rules - Please pick up any dog poop - Please keep your dogs on lead until inside the fenced area - Please be respectful to neighbours and their stock - Please turn off the hose at the tap when finished
Have fun in this fully fenced, flat, partially mowed, partially shaded, quiet Sniffspot! Your pup can enjoy the parkour equipment or run around sniffing to their heart's content in our all-natural setting. Perhaps your pup would like to play with toys? We've got that too! A whole toy box of all kinds of toys and treats are on hand. Take advantage of the photo booth and other photo opportunities because we can never have enough photos of our pups. And when your pup is tired, there is a cooling mat and elevated bed to rest. You too can sit and enjoy watching your pup live his/her life to the fullest!

Pleasant Valley Creekside Ranch https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=61550228295246&mibextid=b06tZ0 *Just a couple things to note: There is not a “hiking trail” on our property. Our spot is meant for those who are looking to have a fun safe place to swim and play as well as those who want to enjoy some or all of the amenities we provide. Additionally our creek is not shared with any public access. The strip of land across the creek which is mainly covered in overgrowth of blackberries and trees is privately owned and fully fenced. No public access is granted there. Additionally although we are in rattlesnake season and it is always good to be aware of your surroundings no matter where you go, we have not encountered any snakes on our property. Our creek as well as many other play areas on our property is used safely daily by our 2 labs, frenchie, kitty, family, friends and Sniffspot reservations*
6 acres with openspace/ bushland and a freshwater creek for swimming 3/4 of the year. Can be muddy in winter. Suggested walk path in yellow. Orange flags mark some paths and creek crossing. One neighbours dog (marked on map) is occasionally visible/audible but is contained by electronic fence 20 metres inside boundary.
A luscious and green space, with fruit trees and lots of room to run and play, surrounded by a 6 foot block wall. No children under ten years old allowed.
My house and yard is at the end of a dead-end street that borders a vineyard. There are a couple chairs under the covered patio on the backside of the house that you are welcome to use and move around wherever you'd like. There's also a water dish and water under the patio.
It is important for most dogs to have off-leash exercise and plenty of opportunities to explore. Engaging in natural behaviors like sniffing and running is valuable for your pet's mental health! Since letting dogs off leash in city parks can be dangerous for the surrounding community and wildlife — not to mention can lead to issues with animal control or park authority departments — public dog parks are a legal way to let dogs have off leash exercise.
But the free and open nature of public dog parks can have drawbacks. While the popularity of dog parks has been skyrocketing in the United States, so has the number of professional trainers who caution against their use. The top risks associated with public off-leash dog parks are that:
Many dog behaviorists discourage visiting public dog parks and recommend Sniffspot's private dog parks. With Sniffspot, dogs can get their exercise safely — without worrying about other dogs, people, or potential disease transmission — because our private dog parks only allow one guest to book at a time and are not open to the public. This solves the above issues!
Many owners are drawn to dog parks because they want to socialize their pets. We're inundated with messages of the “perfect” friendly dog. Our social media feeds feature viral videos of animal best friends that echo the cutesy movies we loved as children — but they often show a false reality.
While dogs are social mammals, it's typically not natural for them to regularly engage in play with strangers. Dog sociability can be viewed as a sliding scale:
Ultimately: It's perfectly normal for our dogs to not want to play with other pets outside of our families. Sniffspot was actually inspired by a dog-selective rescue who wasn't able to get any time off leash in a city environment, making it difficult to meet his basic needs amongst the hustle and bustle.
Even a previously social dog might develop a behavior issue (like fear reactivity) due to a negative interaction with another dog at a public dog park. Perhaps they get subtly bullied, feel overwhelmed, or are even bit — and they decide to preemptively try to keep other dogs away from them. Now your social dog is selective or even aggressive toward others.
While some dogs seem to let those negative interactions roll off their back (especially if they've been well socialized since puppyhood) others are affected in lasting ways. Each dog and situation is different.
Public dog parks also increase the chances of pets sustaining injury or developing infection.
While many dog-dog injuries at dog parks are accidental — canines can be mismatched in size, inadvertently break skin while wrestling with untrimmed nails, or simply come on too strong without realizing — others are overtly aggressive.
Even friendly dogs can start fights by failing to recognize another pet's signals of discomfort. Resource guarding over food and toys can turn into a dangerous scuffle. Sometimes heightened arousal from being in a large social group elevates even a typically clear-headed dog's prey drive.
No matter how hard a city works to keep their parks clean, it's impossible to fully eliminate all infection risk. This is especially true in dog-designated spaces that see dozens, or perhaps hundreds, of different canines each week.
There's no way to confirm that every dog entering an off-leash space has been fully vaccinated — and bacterial diseases like leptospirosis often thrive in wet, muddy terrain that's been torn up by paws.
Young puppies and elderly dogs have the greatest chance of getting sick.
While dog parks certainly come with their risks, it would be unfair to claim they're always a bad idea. Public dog parks do serve an important community service in cities.
Some areas lend themselves to safe interactions better than others — large plots of land with acres to maneuver are less dangerous than fenced-in city runs, for example — and responsible owner involvement can make a world of difference.
Dogs enjoy Sniffspot dog parks for all kinds of different reasons — spanning from physical exercise to behavior modification training to agility or other dog sports practice and more. Whatever your primary goals, there is a Sniffspot dog park for you!
There are many different types of private dog parks available. Sniffspot hosts offer locations like designated training yards; expansive fields; large, fully-fenced off-leash dog parks; indoor facilities with lights and other amenities; dog sports courses complete with agility equipment; pools and natural water features; and more. Some even have niche amenities, such as a park splash pad and dog-friendly potable water fountains.
You can filter Sniffspot dog parks by size, fencing, and distractions that might be present via our dog park locator. 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 includes the park hours of operation — and 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.
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 environments to let your dog express their natural behaviors.
With Sniffspot, all bookings are private — the only park users at a given time are the dog owners who signed up and dogs they bring with them in their own group. Additionally, we require all dogs to be vaccinated (or have equivalent titers). Hosts are in charge of keeping their park areas clean, and many go out of their way to provide visitors with exceptional experiences. It's a win-win for everyone in the community!
Perhaps most helpful to know exactly what you're getting into: Sniffspot dog park locations are vetted and reviewed by guests, so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog — whether they have behavioral struggles, special needs, or any other specific considerations. 93% of reviews on Sniffspot visits are 5 stars and many spots have been reviewed hundreds of times.
As always, make sure to check weather conditions before visiting.
Yes. Many Sniffspot dog parks are designed to be a designated off-leash area! That said: Not every Sniffspot private dog park location is completely fenced in.
All dogs are different, and we expect our guests to be safe and responsible — especially if their dogs do not have strong recall to be able to remain under voice control. Off leash dogs should always stay within the designated off-leash dog park property. This is important to have an enjoyable time and be respectful to the hosts, neighbors, and community as a whole!
No, there will not. 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 buffers between bookings to ensure you aren't arriving or leaving at the same time another park user is present.
You can browse all of our Sniffspots here using our dog park locator. You can easily view information about the spots, including open times, park entrance details, and current conditions.
Each host sets their own price, so you can check the cost per hour 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 or drinking fountains for dogs, park benches, WiFi accessibility, and so on.
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 do not have limits for dogs per owner or dogs per adult handler, though some individual park hosts set person per visit limits.
Adult supervision is required at all times.
Dog owners are responsible for picking up pet waste to keep park areas clean (many Sniffspot private dog parks provide pet waste stations).
We require that guests sign our waiver and agree to follow park rules and policies before visiting park sites.
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 for you! Park planning can be as simple as opening up your existing yard.
Being a Sniffspot host can be incredibly rewarding both financially and personally.
We love dogs — but our modern world is built for us humans, not for our canine companions. Tightly packed cities, small public dog parks, and less time in nature have increased the rates of problem behaviors like leash reactivity, fear aggression, and anxiety in our pets. Sniffspot is a way to combat this mental and physical health crisis! By providing a safe environment, you can enable local dogs and owners to breathe a collective sigh of relief as they get to engage in natural behaviors (like sniffing, running, and playing) in a private space free of potential dangers they can't escape at city parks or on the sidewalk.
