Location

Kingsport, Tennessee

Description

We offer a sloped half acre in Sullivan County, Tennessee - a mix of green grass, gravel, and woods. We are located in a quiet cul-de-sac. You may park at the bottom of the cul-de-sac, or in the driveway. All dogs must be up to date on all vaccines, flea and tick medication and heart worm preventative. We have multiple cameras on our property for our protection and yours. We require a 6 hour heads up before booking- however - feel free to reach out via messages and we may be able to get you on the schedule on shorter notice. We will do our best to set atleast one bowl of water out for your pets, however, if we are not home we will not be able to do this. Please keep this in mind when planning your visit. In the winter months, we will have 2 firepits available for use for an add on cost - however please reach out via messages to confirm this is available before booking. As the time starts to change and it is getting darker earlier in the evening, we will be happy to turn on the patio lights for you if we are home. We do not have any outdoor outlets so we cannot do this while we are away. We would be happy to give you a wifi code upon booking for use during your time. Absolutely NO digging.

Hazards

This lot is on a slope. We have two gates that lead into the fenced in area. One gate into the lot includes steps while the other gate includes a slight incline. There is a wooden area of the lot that includes some small wildlife. You may encounter briars or poison ivy if you venture into the wooded area.

Extras

Canopy Rental$5

If selected, we will set up a 10x10 canopy for you in a flatter area of the grass- typically right off the porch. We ask that it stay in the place that we put it and not be relocated anywhere else on the property. Canopy stays on property at the end of your rental. Subject to availability- reach out to host prior to booking.

Cornhole Boards w/ bags Rental$5

We have some DIY cornhole boards that we made last year that we would love to set out for you. These are not perfect by any means, but they are functional and fun. Bags included. We will set them up, if it is not raining or calling for rain, and ask that they remain where we place them. We have a specific spot that is level enough for them. Subject to availability- reach out to host prior to booking.

Patio Lights Turned On$3

If selected, we will turn on the patio lights for you to use. These surround the porch and firepit, as well as emit light into our yard for you and your pets to see. Only available after dark. We do have a porch light that comes on every night at a certain time, free of charge. Subject to availability- reach out to host prior to booking.

Paw Print Ornament$14

These are NOT available same day. I customize these myself thru my side gig. Message me the name of the pet and the year. Typical turn around is 1 week or less. I offer porch pickup for these. They make perfect gifts and will display on your tree beautifully.


Propane Firepit Rental$5

In the fall and winter months, we offer propane firepit rental. We must be home at the time of your reservation for you to use the firepit. This is a safety concern and we need to be home in the case of an emergency. Please contact host before adding this extra to your reservation. Subject to availability.

    This place was a great place to let the dog explore

  • Holli F., Oct 7, 2023

    Awesome first visit here! Host was excellent at communicating, I’m new to the area and she even answered a few non-spot related questions. Spot was nice, our bloodhound LOVED going through the woods. The fire pit and patio are were very nice. Neighborhood was very quiet and relaxing. Fence was secure!

    Host replied: I’m so glad you enjoyed your visit! You were our first guest so we are excited to learn from your experience and do even better next time. We hope you return again! 🐾🐶

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
