It is a place to celebrate the life of your dog when there gone. When you go bring a picture of your dog and pin it up in the chapel with a note about your dog.

The Dog Chapel is just one part of Dog Mountain. (See the full review of Dog Mtn. for more info) Everything is doggy-themed! All dogs are welcome inside, no leashes required. Beautiful stain-glass windows. Feel free to leave a note or photo in memory of your past pup; the walls are covered in loving messages. Also check out the art... More

We always look for our old dog Howie's picture there, beneath all the levels of pets who "went over the rainbow bridge".

This was a nice stop on our way from VT to NH. Depending on if you have your dog with you, will determine the amount of time you can/want to spend there. The chapel is beautiful with all the notes to passed dogs. It has a beautiful view of the country. We spent less than 30 minutes there, but enjoyed... More
