Glad I made the stop last summer. We had no dogs with us but enjoyed this place. Took a nice walk on the property. Took lots of pictures of the outdoor art. Checked out the dog chapel. Even has a gift shop of the artists work. If you are lucky you will meet Sally. Do not forget to use the... More

This place was amazing. Dog park, dog chapel, gallery of art work and gift shop. The history in and of itself is interesting, but people's response is fantastic. It's amazing to see how people value their dogs (and other pets!).\ Lots of pictures, beautiful grounds, terrific staff in the gallery, and really nice dogs in the park and on the... 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

Our 7 year old granddaughter, a dog lover, was the reason for our stop here on a trip from Massachusetts to Montreal. She loved it! There was only one other person there with a dog. We wrote a tribute to all of our dogs long gone and she posted it on the wall. A fun stop if you are driving... More

The artist and his wife created a loving tribute to our four-legged friends in the form of a chapel in which the walls are covered with pictures and messages from people who have lost a beloved dog. It's very moving to read people's tributes to the dogs they loved so much. You can take your dog inside the chapel and... More

While road tripping through Vermont we came across this amazing place. Dog Mountain and especially the Dog Chapel are wonderful places to visit. The actual mountain place for dogs to run free is already a joy to visit and observe dogs at play. But the Dog Chapel is truly a special place to see and leave a prayer for your... More

Dog lovers should visit! What a happy creative place. I happen to be a lab lover so this was right up my alley. Cant even begin to recall the many things we saw there... The Chapel itself is full of prayers for dogs. Enjoy this place there arent any others like it that I ever saw and I try to... More
