My husband asked..."and why are we going out of our way to Saint Johnsbury?"...I replied...we are not leaving Vermont until we have been to Dog Mountain. If you are a dog lover it is so worth the stop. Number it is beautiful up on the mountain. The testimonies on the wall will bring you to tears. Be sure and have... More

Go at Sunset - great photos! Even in winter months there is so much to see and do. You do not have to bring your dog to like it. Easy directions with your iPhone. Spend at least 15 minutes just taking photos outside! Lots of fun things just around the grounds.

This is a wonderful place to take your dog for some outdoor social activity. The play area sits on top of a hill with amazing views! So something for the owner to enjoy as well. Everyone I met was very friendly and had playful well behaved animals. Dogs are allowed to run free over the entire area, including the gift... More

If you like dogs and you go to Saint Johnsbury, do not miss Dog Mountain. The chapel, the gift shop and the grounds and pond setup for dogs to party and play is fun.

The Dog Chapel is an incredible place to honor your four footed friends. It is truly spiritual and there is a feeling of connection when entering. Seeing all the photos and messages touched my heart. We put our sweet dog's photo there with the others. It's a wonderful place to sit and reflect on the beauty and love of our... More

I couldn't believe how nice of a place this is!!! We planned on just visiting briefly but ended up staying a coupe of hours because we (especially our dog) were having a great time! This is such a scenic location: on the side of a mountain in a rural farm area. Dogs are allowed EVERYWHERE, and NO leashes needed, even... More

lots of land and water and dogs freedom for canines to be canines and owners get to relax. sad endings for the founders but locals have stepped in to keep it afloat so please spend your souvenier money here. bring photos of dear departed dogs to put up in dog chapel.

I moved down the street from Dog Mountain several years ago (before Stephen and Gwen passed away). It is a magical place that brings back so many memories of our past and current 4 legged friends. They have great hiking trails , open for free to anyone and always open for our dogs to run free. There is no other... More
