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.

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

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
