Dogwood Hollow—the new “Storybook Resort for Your Dog” dog-boarding facility—will celebrate its Grand Opening on Sunday, October 26 between 2 and 6 p.m. The facility is within easy driving distance of Nashville, Franklin, and Nolensville, at 9304 Independent Hill Rd, Arrington, TN   37014. The facility will have an enchanted forest/storybook theme.

The Grand Opening—which is free and open to the public—will feature a family-friendly festival atmosphere. Attendees will enjoy light hor d’oeuvres, a fun photo booth, recorded Celtic Music, and the exclusive Dogwood Hollow Boutique.

Also on hand will be several local animal-rescue groups, who will bring adoptable dogs looking for their forever families.

All current customers who come to the Grand Opening will receive a free Dogwood Hollow tote bag, for when Fido comes to stay again. New customers who make a reservation that day also will receive a tote bag for their pooch.

MORE ABOUT DOGWOOD HOLLOW

Dogwood Hollow is a cage-free dog-boarding facility designed like an enchanted forest/storybook world for dogs. Each dog or family of dogs receives his or its own private room. Every loving and caring touch is provided, in order to make a dog’s visit as stress-free and fun as possible. When each “furry baby” arrives, he or she is greeted with a “Faerie Kiss,” a touch of pure lavender essential oil rubbed onto the forehead. This immediately creates a sense of calm through aromatherapy. This is further enhanced by gentle, soothing music, which is piped throughout the facility 24/7.

All of Dogwood Hollow’s rooms are completely indoors. Each dog is personally walked at least three times a day on leash, and also receives playtime in the outdoor play area. Each dog is interacted with and “loved on” frequently, in contrast to many kennels and boarding facilities with indoor/outdoor runs, where contact with humans can be sparse.
