Dog at Cheekwood

Celebrate the blooming of Cheekwood’s nationally certified dogwood collection with your best four-legged friend! Cheekwood’s spring dog-friendly weekend will feature food trucks, local vendors, special performances, and more.⁠


Please keep all pet friends on leash at Cheekwood and do not bring them into any of the buildings.

We will have water refill and doggie bag stations on the property. Please BYOBowl to fill and refill with water for your dog. If you don’t have a collapsible bowl and want something that’s easy to carry around, try making one out of materials you could already have at home. Like this one from a dog food bag or this one from a cereal box and bag.

For more information on why we no longer provide communal bowls, check out this article from the AKC and this article from Preventative Vet.
