This is heaven on earth for dogs and dog lovers! Well worth the 6 hour trip we made with 7 dogs just to come see this special place! The dog chapel is truly a touching place to see all the loved dogs that have passed on left notes by their friends. The stained glass and hand crafted "pews" are a... More

We recently got a puppy. She's coming along very well but can always use more time to learn her manners with other dogs. Dog Mountain has become a great place to socialize with other dogs for her. The people are so nice and extremely inviting. There is a peaceful feeling at Dog Mountain that one doesn't find just anywhere. I... More

Stephen Huneck is my most favorite artist. Great humor, color, and design, delight everyone who walks into your house, or receives a gift you bought. They have... More

This is a great place to visit with your dog. I walked out of the dog chapel being able to finally accept the passing of my pup Petey. Read the postings on the walls and you will understand.

Go here if you like dogs. Go here if you love dogs. Go here if you've ever loved a dog. Go here if you don't like dogs. Go here with your dog. Go here without your dogs (only if for some reason they can't join you). Just go here because this place is magical whether you want to sleigh in... More

Plenty of space for dogs to run, a chapel with a wall full of stick up notes in memory of all the visitor's dogs that have gone to dog heaven. A pond for dog swimming and a lovely gift shop

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.
