My Wife and I are looking forward to someday Joining you on the road.

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am a retired Police Canine Officer and have a degree in training law enforcement canine teams. During my tenure as a Police Canine Officer, I also ran my own business training Canine Teams for Departments throughout the United States. We operated the training center from our home here at 470 CR 97 Fremont, Ohio for more than 30 years. I am semi-retired and am looking forward to my wife also retiring in the near future as well. At that time we plan on RV'ing full-time. Because of the business, we have done public tours and demonstrations here for several years and as a result have had numerous 45 foot tour buses in and out of here all the time. There will not be any problem getting in and out. We set about 2 miles North Of Fremont, Ohio just off SR 19. Fremont has several sights that might be of interest (Check out Sandusky County Visitor Bureau for a list of all the things to see and visit in the area). Also, Lake Erie , Port Clinton and Put In Bay Island are about 16 miles north and for most of the summer I am sure things are booked up, so this would be close to the festivities. We have water , gray water dump and 50 AMP hookup available . I am not sure what else to add if you need anything else Please let me know.

Like a full service campground!

Brian’s place is visible from the highway (but nighttime traffic quieted down and didn’t bother us at all) . . . Once you arrive, you learn you’ve got 50 amp service, potable water, and even a dump! We made use of the electric hookup and enjoyed a nice break from days of traveling. The next day, we were able to use a dumpster on the property, and even mail something from his mailbox. Thank you, Brian - we will come back when we have time to see the area.

A friendly, flexible, very informative guy. We stayed here

We enjoyed our stay with B and his dog training location. We did sit through one of his events and it kind of put together his beginning history with dog training. We met a couple of other BDW members and enjoyed each conversation we shared. This location is close to a main interstate, has the potential of being noisy . Only a few miles from town so easy access to last minute needs. I do plan on stopping here again when in the area.

Fabulous stop!

Welcoming and friendly host! Perfect wide open place to park and close to interstate, so very convenient!
Would love to stay again! Thank you!!

Very nice guy and super easy experience.

Brian met us at the road and directed us in. We were able to plug-in, fill our water tank, and get some sleep. Great stopover.


September 2020

Enjoyable and quiet

It was lovely to stay here. I enjoyed the bike path and it was a great place to relax.


September 2020

Great host!

Even before our host met us at his driveway, we felt welcomed! He was so kind, friendly, and generous with his space, electric hookup, water, and WiFi. Plenty of space for us to easily turn around in our 20 foot rig. Really convenient off the highway. Perfect location, great host, we will definitely be back!


September 2020

Beautiful spot

The hosts were very helpful in getting my rig situated. I’m a total newbie and backing up is not my strong suit just yet. The area is gorgeous.


September 2020

Great stop, everything you need, terrific host

This is a great stop, the host is very friendly and personable. We had all services for a minimal donation and there is a large field to run the dog. We'll definitely stay again if passing through.


September 2020

Nice Place

Super place to overnight. Our host was great. He met us at the end of his driveway on his bike. He made power, water and sewer available. We have a 41 foot motorhome pulling an F-150. If your rig is longer than ours you will need to unhook in order to make the turn into and out of his property. Other then that Plenty of room. Outstanding stay.

Secluded property convenient to turnpike

This is a wonderful property just off the ohio turnpike, very convenient for our stopover night on a longer trip. Brian was very friendly and hospitable. He met us at the end of the driveway on his tractor and led us through the yard to pull in so we did not have to back into the spot. He even offered full hookups! Though we were more than happy with the electricity to power our AC and keep our pups cool overnight. We also enjoyed an incredible sunset over the vast fields. Highly recommend!

Great experience

Our host was the best. The dog expo is educational and thrilling to the point that half the audience stood up to get a better view of the working police dogs. If I hadn't stayed at this location I truly would have missed out. FYI the expos are scheduled so they aren't all the time but the master trainer was the host and shared his knowledge with us. Thank you host.


August 2020

Great stop especially if you get a demo

We were lucky enough to get the police dog demonstration. Will definitely stop again. Owner was a great host.


August 2020

Great Hosts !

The hosts were very accommodating and kind. The parking area is very large and convenient to navigate and park. Really very nice people and nice experience


August 2020

Great overnight!

Brian was a gracious host. Thx! Our two small dogs enjoyed all the grassy areas to run free. His electrical, water and sewer were very welcomed. There’s a nice rail trail about 3 miles away. Would definitely stay here again.

Easy and Pleasant

Brian is a great host and greeted us at the beginning of the drive onto his property with a local travel magazine! Pleasant and very helpful. All sites are easy in easy out, pretty level. We stayed 3 nights and were able to use all hookups. Plenty of room for our slides and parking for the truck. Location is between Cleveland and Toledo so lots of attractions to visit if you have time. Big thumbs up. Thank you for letting us stay. Sunsets were lovely.


August 2020

Wonderful host and great location

Easy access just off the turnpike. Super accommodating and great friendly host with an amazing property. We will make this a stop next time we are in the area.


August 2020

Great place to stay

Nice place to stay with full hookups. Owner is very laid back and helpful ! Great experience! Thank you

Great Little Stop

One of our best experiences we have had with Boondockers Welcome. The hosts were very accommodating and we had a great time visiting with them. We were extremely fortunate to have been there for one of their Police K-9 demonstrations, and it was the highlight of our trip to the area. We have made a lifelong friend at this stop and will return for a visit in the future.

Great first BW

Brian was a great host for our first BW. Power was perfect for the hot night and the kids and dog loved running in the large field and watching the trucks on the turnpike in the distance. Would definitely recommend!


July 2020

Any size rig here!

We always have to be careful of our height at 13' - 3", no problems here though the turn into the driveway was a bit tight coming from one direction (42' long 5th wheel). Brian and his lovely wife are super nice and very welcoming. With this being our first time with Boondockers Welcome we couldn't have been happier. There is a 2-mi long desolate road that goes by farms great for walking or a quick bike ride. Brian has full hookups (30 amps) and the $10 fee is a bargain. We hope to return at some point in the future.


July 2020

Great spot and a great host

Brian was more than accommodating. We spent a quiet evening before hitting the road early in the AM. Highly recommend! Thanks Brian.


July 2020

Just in time!

Very easy access as everything is flat! Electric, water and DUMP are right where you park. The dump was just in time for us!!! Brian was very accommodating and friendly!


July 2020

Great stop

Nice safe place, good power. Easy to maneuver in parking lot. Good groceries close. He even had a brochure for the area.


June 2020

Great stay!!

We enjoyed our stay very much. The hosts are the best!! Very hospitable and welcoming! I would recommend to other Boondockers traveling through the area.

Thanks for everything!


June 2020

What a great host!

All the fixings! This is a great stop to get re situated, powered up and fresh water bonus.
Super nice couple. Even had a packet of information with local experiences for us.
Can’t go wrong!
Thank you both so much and hope to see you on the road someday!
