Having a ruff time at the dog park? A trendy new app can give you and your pup a leg up on that.

Why it matters: Sniffspot, dubbed the "Airbnb for dogs," lets people around the country rent out their backyards or private land as "dog parks."

  • There are more than 400 listings across Tampa Bay, with prices ranging from around $9 to $24 per dog per hour.

Zoom in: Some of the "top spots" in the area include…

How it works: Like similar apps, where you can rent pools, boats, and houses, you create an account and book a spot online.

  • The listed features include fence height, acreage, privacy levels, shade availability and seating, and amenities such as toys and playmates.

Point of intrigue: Sniffspot says some of its hosts make more than $3,000 a month renting out their unused land.
