Connie's Dogtopia

Welcome to Connie's Dogtopia! Nestled in Johnson City, TN on a private lot with a 4 ft. fenced in area surrounded by mature trees, you and your dog(s) will feel like you're in the country but actually within the city. Conveniently located approximately: 1.5 miles from the Johnson City Medical Center 2.2 miles from the Mountain Home VA Hospital 2.3 miles from ETSU 3.1 miles from downtown Johnson City Come relax, unwind, and listen to the birds chirping in my tranquil and peaceful setting while your pup(s) explore all the scents. If your pup is playful, there are plenty of toys to choose from. If your pup isn't and just wants to chill, there is a coolaroo dog bed to rest on. As a pup parent of three myself, I can appreciate the need to just chill and take in the beauty of nature while my pups burn some energy from being cooped up in the house all day :) Hope you enjoy your time at Connie's Dogtopia as much as Fang, Finley, Fergus, and Fallon (on occasion) and I do! Here's to releasing the zoomies!! UPDATE 02.04.2024: every visit the pups have unlimited access to the wading pool(s), The Bazinga ball pit, Digger's Depot sandbox, the basic agility equipment and agility tunnel. And don't forget all of the toys to choose from in the brown deck box! 🙂 UPDATE 11.26.2023: if the local temperature isn't predicted to be at least 45°F or higher, for the health and safety of the dogs, the wading pools will NOT be available. Thank you for your understanding. UPDATE: September 2023, larger wading pool (The Pouncing Pond) approx. 5ft. x 3.5ft. x 1ft., 200 more pit balls added to The Bazinga Ball Pit (total of 400 now), and a Nelson stationary sprinkler added. From 08.23.2023 - TBD, The Pouncing Pond (doggie wading pools) will be available FREE of extra charge to ALL guests. UPDATE 08.11.2023: This August, Digger's depot (digging sand pit) and The Bazinga Ball Pit were added. Connie

FAQ about our Bristol dog parks

Are dog parks good for dogs?
It is important for dogs to have off leash exercise to sniff and run. But the free and open nature of public dog parks has drawbacks. There could be aggressive dogs, disease transmission and cleanliness issues. For this reason, many dog behaviorists discourage visiting public dog parks and recommend Sniffspot's private dog parks. Sniffspot private dog parks only allow one guest to book at a time and are not open to the public, which solves many of these issues.
