A lot of folks use hide glue with the idea that they might have to take the joint apart. That is one of the advantages of hide glue. As for dovetails with no glue, I suppose you could pin them  to help hold them together and then drill the pin out. If you already know you will be disassembling the joint then maybe you should just use knockdown furniture hardware  or wedged joints instead.

Have fun
