Sniffspot is the #1 app to rent safe and private dog parks. Bring pure joy to your dog’s face by letting them run free without a worry in a Sniffspot dog park.

With thousands of dog parks across the US and around the world, Sniffspot makes off leash play easy for dog guardians and their canine companions. Sniffspot dog parks are hosted by locals on private land enabling easy access to all kinds of locations - fenced dog parks, indoor dog parks, dog water parks, dog beaches, small dog parks, hiking trails for dogs, yards and backyards, dog fields, dog agility parks and more.

The reason people are flocking to Sniffspot is that cities were not built for dogs. But now people are moving to the city and adopting dogs - the pandemic has exacerbated this trend. It’s hard to be a dog in the city, with loud noises, cars flying by and concrete everywhere. Dog parks are crowded and dangerous. And it shows in dog health - over 50% of dogs are obese, dog depression is on the rise and the majority of dogs have behavioral issues. Dogs were designed for a time before cities when they ran free in the wild all day. Sniffspot gives dogs a whiff of the old times when they were free.

Existing off leash options for dog owners in cities can be lacking to say the least. Even if someone is lucky enough to have a public dog park, there is no control over which dogs are there or enforcement of clean up requirements. And cities are already rife with owners letting dogs off leash in public parks that can cause a nuisance and be a danger for the dogs themselves. Many dog owners resort to visiting dog parks early in the morning or going to unused tennis courts. With Sniffspot people can take their dog to a beautiful location that is only available for them and let their dog just be a dog.

Great for my reactive dog

I love this idea and I’m glad it exists! Tried it for the first time this week. I was a bit nervous walking into someone’s yard, but my dog loved it! Thank you to the founders and folks who keep this app going. I wish there were more local owners offering up their yard as it’s a bit of a drive for us to the available spots, but I don’t mind it! Yards are so decently priced. It hurts my heart that I can’t own property with a yard for my dog, but I’m glad this option exists now where he can explore so many more yards!
The app is a bit slow to load and sometimes pictures take awhile, but I don’t mind. As a reactive dog owner, the angst of not being able to walk my dog at normal hours and not being able to go to parks or dog parks has affected our quality of life.
I hope to see this app and service continue to
grow. Thank you Sniffspot team and thank you to the many owners who offer up their yards to us pet parents!

Dangerous! Proceed with caution.

Sniffspot does absolutely nothing to verify that the host to list properties actually on the property, have authority to list the property, or even legally allowed to give people permission to enter the property. I went to a 34 acre tract of land in Chico Texas last week. It was listed as Alvord Texas. I did notice that there was a deer feeder but it’s not deer season so I wasn’t too worried. We went back this week and due to some concerns I felt suspicious. I requested that the sheriffs office go and check and make sure that the landowner actually was giving me permission to enter the property. Deputy Florez of Wise county sheriffs office in Texas had the wonderful courtesy of going to the homeowner and asking them if they were a member of Sniffspot and if they knew I was going to be on the property for two hours today. The homeowner knew absolutely nothing! She had chickens, and if my dog had attacked the chickens, she could’ve legally shot my dog, because this is Texas. She might have even shot me whether it’s legal or not is beside the point I would’ve been dead! And I certainly could’ve been arrested for trespassing. Be afraid. If the land, owner or property owner does not meet you, I would be I just simply wouldn’t go on the property. Sniff spot is more concerned with valid reviews. Then they are with valid listings which means peoples lives are at risk.

I am very sorry to hear about this situation! Safety is our top priority and we have implemented over 100 features specifically designed to make Sniffspot safe. Over 97% of guest reviews are 5 stars. I am personally investigating this situation and will make sure that it is thoroughly resolved and that the root issue that enabled this situation to happen is also resolved.

I cannot stress this enough… this app is incredibly unsafe and the owner of this app has no set rules, boundaries or standard operating procedures when it comes to the user’s safety and banning people misusing the app. I had THE WORST app experience ever in less than 2 weeks of using this app. The host “Robin Roads Sniff Spot” located in Dallas, cyber stalked me and sniff spots never banned them. Sniff spots gave them 3 warnings even after I had to file a police report against them personally. The “host” cyber stalked me by monitoring my internet activity, publicly slandering my business in a review on the app, and repeatedly contacting me after I asked them to stop. I even had this “host” served by my attorney with a letter of intent to sue and press charges for cyber bullying and stalking and I can’t even block this “host” from harassing me on the app. I have contacted Sniffspots several times concerning this same issue and they did nothing to solve the issue but give this criminal several warnings. Sniffspots is incredibly unsafe as we all live or work in very close proximity and they do nothing to protect their consumers. This “host went so far as to figure out what parks I rent at and made it clear that he could find me if he wanted to. How terrifying! DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP. I wish I could give them zero stars.

I am so very very sorry to hear about your experience. We take harrassment seriously and it has no place in our community. We have been in touch extensively on this issue and that was the first time we had seen a case of harrassment on Sniffspot. Since that time we have introduced a feature that allows users to block other users. This will prevent a user from contacting or seeing any other content from another user.
