When we say we are “#1 for Family Fun,” we mean the entire family, even the furry members. Just inside our admission gates is the Holidog Inn, a kennel where even Holidog feels comfortable telling his friends to “Relax, it’s the Holidog Inn.”

Holidog and his buddy PaxHere’s Holidog with his buddy Pax, along with some tips about our Holidog Inn:

  • Please bring proof of current rabies vaccination to Holiday World Services before boarding any pet in a kennel.
  • You have the choice of an air-conditioned indoor ($25) or an outdoor ($15) kennel.
  • Have more than one pet? For an additional $10 per pet, you may keep both pets in the same kennel. We number the kennels so all pets are accounted for; we also take detailed notes about your pet’s needs.
  • Sorry, we don’t take reservations. Kennels are available on a first-come basis.
  • Kennels come in a variety of sizes for large and small pets.
  • Our Holiday World Services staff does not handle the pets out of safety for the pet. They will be happy to:
    • Check on pets throughout the day and make sure they have water;
    • escort and supervise one adult owner per pet during boarding, visits, and removal; and
    • contact owners if pets need care or cleaning
  • You may return throughout the day to provide some TLC and take them on potty breaks as needed. (We provide a small grassy area for this purpose.)
  • Feel free to bring any toys or other special items for your pets to help make them feel more at home during their stay at the Holidog Inn.
  • Don’t forget your pet’s food. We will provide water, dishes, and litter bags for them.
  • Sorry, no overnight Guests. Please pick up pets prior to Holiday World’s closing time.

Outdoor Kennels: Your pets can enjoy the shade of the shelter house along with a nice breeze coming from our outdoor fans. Just ask Bella; she sure enjoyed her visit to our outdoor kennels.

One more thing: Dogs are not the only pets who visit the Holidog Inn. We’ve hosted all types of visitors, even a pot belly pig! Within our indoor kennels, we provide a back room for smaller pets such as cats, hamsters, and rabbits. This room has a sliding door that separates them from dogs to ensure all of our guests enjoy their stay with us! If you would like more information about our Holidog Inn, please visit our website’s Rules & Services page or simply stop by Holiday World Services during your next visit.

    Is a vet bill showing rabies vaccination sufficient for proof? Or what do you need to provide proof.

    Thank you.

    Just checking if the kennel service is still offered this year (2022), planning on visiting you tomorrow and it would be great and easier on us if we can leave our Rocket with you while we have fun

    We live an hour away, and just worried that if we get there to holiday world that there might not be a place for my dog since it’s first come first serve. If I give you a call before I leave, will you know more if there will be availability for my dog? Thank you.

      We normally don’t fill up our kennels entirely, but you may be able to get in touch with our Call Center at 812-937-4401 for more information.

    Is the dog kennel still open? What is the cost? And no reservations needed? Thanks

    Are the kennels open on the Halloween weekends? Oct. 15? And are they big enough for a big dog?
