SafeK9 Sniffspot Private Dog Park & Trail


Looking for a peaceful place to play and explore with your pup privately? Have a dog that needs space? Traveling to our area from out of town? Want a playdate with your dog’s pals without running into others? Do you own a dog business and need a safe place to walk or train your dog clients?


SafeK9’s forested private dog park & trail is located on over 40 acres of land nestled between the two beautiful Georgian Bayside towns of Midland and Penetanguishene. 


Here your dog will get all the intriguing sniffs they desire! Regularly hiked by our SafeK9 daycare clientele, there's plenty of scents and nature on our trail to keep your dog’s nose, and in turn, their mind busy getting much needed mental stimulation. After all, it's just as important as the physical for a happy and healthy dog!


Hot day? Dog need a dip? They can splish, splash and meet the frogs in one of the 2 ponds located trailside. 


We believe every dog deserves a time to run and frolic without the restriction of a leash. We are blessed to be able to provide that opportunity to you and your dog to bond without the stress of running into other pooches and people.
