Pet friendly things to do in Pigeon Forge for people staying in pet friendly cabins in Pigeon Forge.

If you want to save money and have more fun on your next vacation in the Smokies, bring your dog! Avoiding the expense of hiring a pet-sitter or a kennel will give you more money to spend on your trip, and your dog’s presence is guaranteed to brighten everyone’s mood. Planning a getaway with your dog in Pigeon Forge is easy when you follow these four steps:

1. Pick Out Your Pet Friendly Cabin

Timber Tops offers a wide variety of pet friendly cabins in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. With everything from one bedroom to eight bedroom vacation rentals, we are guaranteed to have the perfect accommodations for your group. If you’re looking for a two bedroom cabin, you might like Hole in the Wall, which has amenities such as a game room, a pool table, a Jacuzzi tub, a gas grill, and a relaxing fireplace. Like all of our cabins, it also provides amazing views of the Great Smoky Mountain region to enjoy.

2. Prepare Yourself and Your Dog for the Journey

Before leaving for Pigeon Forge, you will want to make sure you have everything you need. While you should always have a packing checklist when going on a trip, there are some additional considerations when you’re bringing a pet. If you haven’t brought your dog to see the vet lately, this would be a good time for a checkup. Also make sure you bring accessories such as a good leash, dog treats, toys, and a flea/tick collar. A familiar blanket can also make your dog feel more at home while traveling. If it’s practical, you might want to bring enough dog food with you for the trip. That way you won’t have to risk changing your dog’s diet while on vacation.

3. Stress Free Traveling With Your Pet

Do everything possible to make the trip to Pigeon Forge as comfortable as possible for your dog. If you are driving, make sure you make frequent stops where you can walk your dog. It can be safer to crate your dog while on a long drive. Bring plenty of food and dog snacks, as well as water for the trip. If you will be flying, make sure you check the airline’s policy regarding pets when you book the trip. No matter how you travel, it’s best that your dog not have a full stomach prior to leaving.

4. Plan Some Fun Outdoor Activities

Pigeon Forge is a great vacation spot for dog owners because there is so much to do with your four-legged friend! Your pooch will love playing fetch in your cabin’s yard, relaxing on the porch, and going for walks in the area.
