This summer, play the Sniff and Mark Hoboken Scavenger Hunt with your dog. Using the clues that will be announced each week, you can collect the virtual puzzle pieces around the Mile Square City to assemble the City Map of Hoboken from 1881. There will be give-away items and prizes each week, and the players who complete the puzzle will be entered into the drawing for generous prizes.

Check out the actual historical map and lots more, as well as other exhibits at the Hoboken Historical Museum (1301 Hudson Street). In addition to allowing Sniff and Mark to use the map for the scavenger hunt puzzle, the Hoboken Historical Museum contributed one of the great prize packages as well.

    The dogs behind Sniff and Mark

    Sniff and Mark Skippy Vizsla“It started when Skippy was 2 months old. Skippy was born in Connecticut. On our drive home with him, we stopped at the first New York exit on the Merritt Parkway to let Skippy mark NY as his territory. Our next stop was home in New Jersey. We’ve been sniffing and marking states with Skippy ever since. Today, Skippy’s territory is 18 states.

    Soon, the whole family was playing. Eddy (my sister’s hound) built up a nice territory around Ohio and then added a bunch of states (15) as the family moved from Ohio to Texas. George (my brother’s bulldog) enjoyed stopping in all the states (11) on his trip from Florida to Hoboken.

    Soon, our friends – young and old – were playing, too. All of a sudden, trips to visit grandma in Vermont became more exciting. We kept track on an excel spreadsheet, which was OK, but something was missing. That’s when we got the idea for the app. We wanted a nice way of playing our state territory game with neat graphics, badges and stats. We’ve added local play and interaction with neighborhood Sniff and Mark dogs, as well as a few surprises.

    We hope you enjoy playing Sniff and Mark as much as we do. Sniff and Mark is available for the iPhone on the Apple App Store and on
