If you're looking to take your furry friend somewhere to play that's not a public dog park or your personal yard, you're in luck.

The big picture: Sniffspot, the Seattle-based Airbnb-style service for private dog parks, shared with Axios Richmond's top local spots.

Why it matters: For as little as $4 an hour, your pooch can tear up someone else's yard so you can keep yours intact.

Zoom in: But the best of the best — the top three spots based on five-star reviews and number of bookings this year — offer something more.

🔥 Country Hideaway

  • A one-acre private pasture in Beaverdam, this spot offers shaded structure for the warmer months and a "burn barrel" for when it's chilly.

ğŸžï¸ Kasey's Private Dog Park

  • This Moseley home boasts 10 acres of fully fenced-in exploring, romping and sniffing.

🍻 Figgy's Private Sniff

  • A large fenced-in yard in suburban Henrico, Figgy's shines when it comes to amenities.
  • $10 an hour gets you the spot — along with a drawing of your beloved Fido. For an extra $5, Sniffspotters can add on doggie treats or a cooler full of sodas. For $15, that cooler can be filled with wine or beer instead.
