Dog Bark Park

World's Largest Beagle: Dog Bark Park

This is a small park, with the star attraction being a large beagle that is a bed and breakfast. We spent quite a lot of time talking to Dennis, the owner, and looking around at the various carvings, buildings, and of course the real life golden retriever Sprocket.

Dog Bark Park

When I traveled past Dog Bark Park on hwy 95 near Cottonwood Idaho a couple of weeks ago I was tickled to notice a new addition to the park. They have built a giant red fire hydrant, and it surrounds the portable outhouse so now visitors can now go to the fire hydrant to relieve themselves!

Photo added May 2009. The big dog is known as "Sweet Willy" and sleeps four.

World's Largest Beagle

When I drove past the beagles in August 2004, the smaller of the two had been moved from his perch on the top of the hill, to a spot more cozy near the feet of the larger beagle (the one that has the motel room inside). The park has been refurbished with new picnic tables and other smaller sculptures.

35-foot-tall dog

According to an article in the Tuesday, June 1, 2004, Idaho Statesman, the world's biggest beagle (30 feet tall) is completed and open for business as a bed and breakfast. The dog rents for $88 per night, and is booked well into the summer. A stairway leads to the bedroom and bathroom in the dog's belly, and a ladder leads to a loft in the dog's nose.

It took woodcarver Dennis Sullivan seven years to build his big dog B&B.
