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!

A safe place where reactive/anxious dogs can exist

My dog Luca and I used Sniffspot for the first time today. It is a total game changer in our lives. Recently, two dogs attacked us and we have been in a constant state of anxiety around new people and dogs. We live in an apartment so it’s been just quick potty walks for us. There isn’t anywhere I can just let him “be a dog” anymore. I just want to tell you thank you, Sniffspot, from the bottom of our hearts for having these services for souls like us. Luca was able to just “be a dog” today and we could just simply exist together. Sitting in a beautiful yard and watching him roll around joyfully brought tears to my eyes. This will absolutely increase the quality of our lives and bring very much needed peace and serenity to us. -Thank you- All the love in the universe, Luca and Alexis 🕉💗🦋

So Grateful for this App!

My husband and I adopted our dog Nala in the summer of 2021. We found out she had reactivity issues after a couple months and after learning more about it and working with a trainer, we really wished we had a nice big area to take her off leash so she could decompress and explore safely. We felt guilty for not having a big yard yet (we live in a duplex with a partially fenced yard). After finding Sniffspot via a post in a Canine Enrichment Ideas Facebook group, we were so excited to try it out. The app is easy to use—it’s exactly like Airbnb but for renting your own private space to bring your dog off leash. So incredibly grateful for this and so happy it exists. We have been hoping something like this was out there!! Looking forward to using it when we travel too!
