Providing information on dogs, other domestic animals and people near your spot

Many dogs that use Sniffspot are reactive - which means that they react (barking, anxiety, over excitement, etc) to various stimuli (dogs, people, other domestic animals, etc.). In fact, 75% of all dogs are in some way reactive - have you ever heard a dog barking or seen one pulling on a leash? That dog is likely reacting. 

Folks that have reactive dogs use Sniffspot to find safe, private, worry-free places for their pup to play, so they want to find spots that avoid the stimuli that their dog reacts to. You can read more about providing a safe space for visiting dogs here

This is why it is required to provide information about "Others Near Spot" before you start hosting your spot. It's super important to provide complete and comprehensive information about Others Near Spot, so guests know what to expect before they visit.
