A lovely little chapel dedicated to pets. Many people leave prayers for pets that have crossed the rainbow bridge

The dog chapel is a warm, peaceful spot in a stunning setting set aside to remember all our furry loved ones. The chapel itself is quiet and beautiful, enhanced greatly by the colorful memorials covering all the walls. Before enjoying all Dog Mountain has to offer, it's nice to take a few minutes to visit the chapel and celebrate how... More

Dog Mountain is set on 150 acres on a mountain top location in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. The grounds are always open to people and their dogs. This unspoiled haven is covered with hiking trails and dog ponds. Dogs are not just welcome here, they are cherished! Best time to go is during the foliage season. You get to see the... More

Folk art honoring dogs and the important addition they are to human lives. Chapel has lovely handmade wooden pews, dog statues, stained glass windows honoring dogs and millions of messages tacked to the walls. It is fun to sit and watch dogs and owners come to visit and to think of the dogs I have known and appreciated.

Took my dog here on a VT trip and this was probably my favorite part of it since most of the other attractions sucked. We went yesterday and there was some snow there. It was a pretty view from there. The dogs are all off leash and running around the very scenic mountain. The chapel is a little sad to... More

If you are a dog lover, this is the place. Seeing all the pictures and notes and then thinking of all my dogs, just moved me. Bring your dog or if you can't, there's some there to give you a dog fix. Spend some time in the gallery/gift shop. It's out of town and there's a spot to just sit... More

If you are a dog lover and will be within an hour or 2 of the Dog Chapel / Dog Mountain, it is worth the drive. The day we visited was somewhat busy, and we were greeted by multiple dogs when exiting our vehicle. We did not have our dogs with us, so enjoyed playing with some other visitor's dogs... More

The Dog Chapel at Dog Mountain is magical. If you have lost a loved one and want to be close to them, come to the Chapel. The walls are lined with ones that now wait at the Rainbow Bridge. Stephen Huneck's art is everywhere in the Chapel. It is a place to remember and reflect, Also there is the art... More
