Dog Art & Lodging inside a Giant Beagle-shaped building

A popular Idaho roadside attraction offers guests the opportunity to spend a night in a giant dog-shaped building.  Also at Dog Bark Park is a free visitor center housed in a quaint artist studio where husband & wife artists create wooden carvings using chainsaws.  And naturally their specialty is dog sculptures.  Many breeds are available at the gift shop or from their online store.  Visitors are welcome to walk the grounds, take photos of the big dogs and other whimsical unusual scaled-up art installations, such as a giant red fire hydrant and a walk-in oversize retro coffee maker.  During the 2003-2006 Lewis & Clark Bicentennial the artists carved a large exhibit illustrating the Expedition’s travels by depicting experiences recorded in the journals about the Expedition dog, Seaman.  This exhibit was on display in Charlottesville Virginia in Jan. 2003.
