Sniffspot is the Airbnb for dogs. Here is what it is.
When we pulled up to the gate of a wide open grassy field tucked away at the end of a dirt road, I tried to check my phone to make sure we were in the right place. But, since the owner of the space told me it would happen, I had no service. Luckily, I had saved a few screenshots of the list and quickly identified a lone tree stump and some scattered dog balls. I knew I was in the right place.
This place was a gated lot in Montara that I booked on Sniffspot, the Airbnb to find your dog a private space to play. I had spent $20 to let my mini schnauzer be king of this estate near the San Mateo County coast for an hour, sniffing and fetching at his leisure, undistracted by random dogs coming to sniff his butt. . Although Archer, a 22-pound regular SFGATE donorfell under a tree after just 20 minutes, he said his overall experience was positive.
