It was a nice break for my dog to get out of the car and run. After reading all the reviews, I thought it would be much more spectacular than it was. It's free though, and not far off the beaten path, so it's worth a stop. The town is cute and fun to drive through as well, so that... More

Dog Mountain and Dog Chapel is a beautiful location. Represents the deep connection between humans and dogs. Dog Chapel is very touching and emotional for dog lovers. Definitely worth the trip. I'll be back whenever I am able to be in the area.

It's been at least 8 to 10 years since I was here last, and while many aspects of Dog Mountain have change, the mountain "concept" itself has not. This is a dog-friendly wonderland for our canine friends. When you arrive, you and your dog/s are able to freely wander around the entire area with no restrictions. Our four legged companions...

The Dog Chapel on Dog Mountain is a real treat for people who love dogs. It is a true New England church, with only a few carved pews, and stain glass windows. Magnificent carvings of man's best friend fill the corners of this beautiful chapel. Dogs are encouraged to run off-leash around the ponds, barns and fields. It is the... More

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

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.
