Who doesn’t like amusement parks? Who doesn’t like road trips? Well, if you’re heading to Dollywood and your four-legged canine buddy is accompanying you, don’t worry, you can leave her at Doggywood while you go play.
Doggywood is a day boarding facility where visitors to Dollywood can leave their dog while enjoying the park. The kennel opens 30 minutes before the park and stays open for 30 minutes after the park closes. Space is limited so reservations are highly recommended and ensure that you have a place for your dog to play, stay, and get some loving while you’re away. There is no overnight boarding, it is only for those who are visiting the park.
The kennel runs are 4 ft by 6ft and there are also cottages which are 6 ft by ft for dogs that need some extra wiggle room or require a little more privacy. Owners provide food, can bring some bedding, and a few toys. Pets must have proof of vaccines and be up to date with them. All dogs must be in good visible health, be ok with strangers, and be old enough to have received their rabies vaccine.
Dollywood is open seasonally from early spring through December and is open from 9am or 10am to 8pm or 10pm depending on the day and event planned. There are plenty of rides to go on like roller coasters, water rides, the dollywood express train, and zip line. You can also take in a free concert, have some awesome bbq food, and catch a movie in 4D.
Dollywood is located at 1198 McCarter Hollow Road, Pigeon Forge, TN and is off Interstate 40. To buy tickets, reserve a space at Doggywood, and see what shows and package deals are available, visit Dollywood’s website.
