Revolutionary “Airbnb For Dogs” Options Explode in Hudson Valley
The internet remains undefeated. A new business aimed at dog owners has recently took off online, and it's finding enormous success in the Hudson Valley.
Sniffspot in the Hudson Valley, NY
The business model for the new company is simple. While Airbnb allows you to rent a someone's home, and the site Swimply lets you specifically rent their pool, Sniffspot let's you use someone else's yard to exercise your dog. There are now Sniffspots in every Mid-Hudson Valley county.
Sniffspot in Ulster County, NY
Sniffspot is a relatively new business, but it has been quickly adopted in the Hudson Valley. There are currently 10 Sniffspot locations in Ulster County, including beautiful (and rentable) yards in Rosendale, Accord, and this 2-acre property in New Paltz, NY (below).
Sniffspot Prices in Ulster County, NY
Just like Airbnb, prices are on a wide spectrum, but since they're hourly, every spot is affordable. The above property in New Paltz, NY is listed at $25 per-hour, and on the higher end of property prices. Another 2-acre property in Kerhonkson, NY (below), however, is half the price, at $12 per-hour. The good news is, they both have five-star ratings.
Sniffspot in Dutchess County, NY
While still limited, there are also yards to rent for you and your dog in Dutchess County. This yard in Lagrangeville, NY (below) was just the spot for one five-star reviewer: "My puppy Pedro had a good time and got some grass exercise that it is hard for us as we live in an apartment. We will come back in the future."
Sniffspot in Orange County, NY
Orange County, NY seems to be the current epicenter of Hudson Valley Sniffspot locations. From Middletown to Newburgh and from Wallkill to Monroe, NY, there seems to be a Sniffspot to fit everyone's needs.
