Providing information on dogs, other domestic animals and people audible/visible 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 Audible/Visible From Spot During Visits" before you start hosting your spot. It's super important to provide complete and comprehensive information about Others Audible/Visible From Spot During Visits, so guests know what to expect before they visit.
