Spend a Night in the Doghouse

Looking for a unique place to stay in while on vacation? Well, look no further than the Dog Bark Park Inn in Cottonwood, Idaho. What's so unique about it? Well, for starters, it's a bed and breakfast guesthouse inside the world's largest beagle. Yes, you heard that right.

The structure was created by husband and wife artists Dennis Sullivan and Frances Conklin. The two craft woodne carvings of dogs, the proceeds from which helped them build the massive structure. The two use the Dog Bark Park as their workshop and create wooden sculptures of more than 60 different breeds and poses of dogs. Stay the night and you're likely to see these sculptures throughout the guest house!

A big THANK YOU to everyone who took time out to help us!

I arrived at the red carpet jacket-less, which made me immediately self-conscious (and surprised they didn’t think I was a stagehand), but our resident movie starlet, Katie Sweeny, one of the cast of our series, wore an amazing dress that I just stood behind.

Animal Planet's DOG PARK Web Series Wins a Webby!


Kevin Barnhill, Supervising Video Producer for, Reports on Dog Park's Webby Win.

“Close the f@%#ing gate!”

If you own a dog, and have been to a dog run, chances are you’ve heard that particular phrase before. I don’t know a single person who regularly goes to a dog park and does not have some sort of crazy story to tell.  It’s like high school all over again.  Add tons of cute dogs to the mix and you have Animal Planet written all over it!  Soooo - we decided to create Dog Park!

If you haven’t watched it yet, you should! No, seriously ... watch it RIGHT. NOW:
