Doggywood at Dollywood

Doggywood is a kennel where Fido can rest and relax while you explore Dollywood. Although dogs are not allowed in the amusement park in Pigeon Forge, TN, visitors traveling to the Smoky Mountains with their dogs can leave Fido at Dollywood's very own kennel. The kennel even has a few individual cottages for dogs needing a little extra privacy. Due to space limitations, it is extremely important that you call in advance for reservations on the day you plan to visit the park. Dogs cannot be accommodated overnight. Visit Website

    Wonderful amenity!

    I think this is a wonderful idea. I stayed at Dollywood much longer than I thought I would because I wasnt worried about my dog being alone all day. The facility was nice, clean, quiet, and well air conditioned. My dog had water every time I checked on her. A nice little perk is that I was able to spend a few minutes with my dog while also cooling down in the AC.

    Completely worth it!

    Doggywood was an exceptional experience. We were staying at an airbnb about 40 minutes away, so the piece of mind of having the dogs close by was amazing. We used preferred parking (which is so worth it) so the pups would not have to walk far on the hot pavement. The staff was so welcoming and kind.

    I have a 9 month old, 70 pound rescue pup and my roommate has a 14 month old, 60 pound mix. I originally booked for 2 kennels but we ended up putting them in the same kennel since we knew they would be better together. They ended up refunding what i paid for the second kennel, which was so nice. We came at lunch time to see them. We had such a great time at Dollywood without a worry. I could not recommend it enough!

    Great Doggy Day Care

    Doggywood is perfect for you and your dog. We dropped our 2 sheltie boys off at doggywood when we arrive at the park. We used the preferred parking so the dogs wouldn't have to walk too far on the hot blacktop. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The building was clean and cool for the boys. The nice lady supplied blankets for our dogs and a big bowl of water. We felt comfortable leaving them here as the staff was very professional and attentive. We spent the day in Dollywood without a worry. We returned to pick them up, They were very happy and cared for. I give doggywood 5stars. Thank You Doggywood!⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    I literally could not love it more

    the staff was so nice and our boy had the time of his life smelling everything and talking to other doggys. I was a little weirded out about leaving him anywhere since he is only 1 year old and this trip to Pigeon Forge was his birthday trip, so I wanted him to have fun, but he didn’t want to leave. I’ll definitely be utilizing Doggywood again

    Doggywood Cottages

    We took our two miniature schnauzers to Doggywood while we spent the day riding coasters at Dollywood. The best part about this was the fact that we could check on & love on our fur babies as much as we wanted! The check-in process was easy & everyone was extremely nice & helpful. I definitely recommend the cottages over the kennels as they are a little more private & quiet for your dogs (there is a weight limit however).

    Amazing Place Perfect for my husky

    I went to Dollywood for the first time a few weeks ago and needed to leave my 5 year old husky at Doggywood. I was a bit nervous but the people there showed me around the doggywood facility and let me take my dog to her kennel. you do need to come back during the day to walk your pup however they do provide water for the dogs. If i ever go back to Dollywood i will be using doggywood again as our experience was amazing

    Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful!

    I had concerns about leaving my toy poodle at first. She has seperation anxiety and to make matters worse she is 12 yrs old. I always have to sedate her, but most of the time she still cries, no, screams until I pick her up. Not this time. The staff was so nice and considerate of my concerns and catered to my dogs every need. I will use them again and do recommend them to others!

    Underwhelming and a bit depressing

    We went to Dollywood largely because of Doggywood. It is nice the have kennels but really this is all it is -- kennels, aka large cages, in the back of the building. They are air-conditioned and they give your dog a bed and water. You have to go back during the day to walk your dog and given the size of the park that can be hard to do. The other dogs in at the same time were barking a lot and he didn't like it, I ended up just walking him once and leaving early because he was so resistant to going back in the cage after his walk. I couldn't take having to shove him in there a third time in one day. The staff was friendly but really all they do is check your dog in and out.

    great place for pets

    The staff at Doggywood was super nice. The area for pets was very clean. It was great that we could go out of the park whenever we wanted to check on or walk out 2 Aussies. The price was very reasonable. And the kennel run was a decent size for 2 dogs to share. We will definitely trust them to keep our girls again.

    Not exactly what I expected

    I would first like to say I am very thankful for what doggywood does provide. Doggywood was clean and kennel'so we're clean and there were bowls for food and water and a pillow bed. The only thing I was disappointed about was you have to come back and walk your dog. They do nothat let your dog out to use the bathroom. So you have to trek across the park as often as your dog needs to go out. Now I have a big dog so during our 9 hour visit we went once but I imagine if your do is small, old, or just has to go out alot this would be a good reason to rethink bringing them. I was unaware of this before I booked her spot. Also if your dog has a accident you are told your responsible for cleaning it up. Again thank know God my dog doesn't have a problem in this area but some dogs might. Doggywood is reasonably priced and all but maybe 1 staff was super sweet. If I needed to use there services again I would but at least I'm more informed and prepare.

    Abbie Loves it Here!

    Our Shih Tzu loves Doggywood. We do not leave her anywhere else. It allows us to come and walk her throughout the day while we still play and we don't have to worry about her. The staff are wonderful to her. We love this kennel. Wish there was more space because it does book up fast though. Thanks for watching our baby.

    Love Love Love Doggywood

    We are season passholders to Dollywood and visit many times a year with our Chihuahua Elvis and our Mini Pin Sammy in tow. Doggywood is a safe amazingly clean and friendly caring staffed place for your pet while you enjoy your day. The staff has always went above and beyond our needs and their establishment is exceptionally equipped and up to date as well as cleaner than some people keep their home. I will recommend this facility again and again.

    Doggywood: Excellent in Every Way!

    We have never left our Bichon Frise anywhere except for DOGGYWOOD. Isabel is 5 years old, and we have implicit trust that she will always be under the supervision of an excellent and loving staff. This "home away from home" is clean, friendly, and safe. We know that she will be checked on frequently. The staff members have helped us in numerous ways, such as allowing us to store canned food in their refrigerator, requesting a specific area for our pet, and bringing along her own crate and toys, etc. They go out of their way for the precious pets in their care, and we have peace of mind each and every time our Bichon is boarded there!

    We visit Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg area several time a year, we always take our yorkie Trixi to Doggywood. The facility is very clean and safe. Staff is very pleasant and efficient in the check in/out of pets.
