Stephen Huneck was an incredible artist/dog lover and built a lasting tribute to mans best friend (and cats) by the construction of this remarkable and unique chapel. I guess it is not too strange, but clearly it brings out emotion and feeling for those that visit. The chapel is nicely constructed and visitors participate by writing notes on favorite pets...

While the occasional town or city may have an individual statue or memorial for special heroic dogs this is the place where all other dogs may be remembered and honored. The entire interior of the chapel's walls are festooned with photographs, poems, post-it notes celebrating our "special" ordinary canine friends. We, who are lucky enough to live with dogs, know...

Dogs are welcom on Dog MOuntain to explore the fields, creeks, ponds as well as the Art Gallery and tiny church. This is a true New England style chapel, built by a noted artist a few years ago, to honor the souls of dogs we have loved. There is a sweet little doggie door, beautiful stain glass windows, incredible artwork,... More

It was a very touching monument to our furry friends. The studio and store also have wonderful pictures. It seems like it's out in the middle of almost no where, but it's worth the trip

Beautiful , special place for dog lovers and their best friends. The stained glass windows and handcrafted pews are a sight to see. The loving notes left for dogs that have passed on by their owners is touching and beautiful.

I came across the information on this place by accident, and decided to make The Dog Chapel my destination along the way from Quebec to New York. What a wonderful place to realize once again, what wonderful creatures dogs are, and how important are they in a man's life.
