4.9/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web
Dog Mountain is set on 150 acres on a private mountain top spot in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. The grounds are always open to people and their dogs. Artist, Stephen Huneck and his wife, Gwen, bought the property in 1995. They turned the barn into studio space. After Stephen’s unique visionary experience, the world famous Dog Chapel was built. The unspoiled haven is covered with hiking trails and dog ponds. Wildflowers abound in the summer and snow-shoeing is a favorite activity in the winter. Year after year, the Dog Chapel and the Stephen Huneck Gallery get more and more visitors from all over the world.

There is no leash law on Dog Mountain. Dogs are not just welcome here, they are cherished! Dogs are free to run, play, swim and, best of all, meet other dogs! It's great to hear from tourists and local residents alike how much Dog Mountain means to them and their dogs.

  • They have a Memorial Building where people leave memorial messages for their pets which have past away. 
  • Great views of the valley and surrounding area. Fun off leash area and mowed walking paths. Dog chapel was emotionally moving. 
  • Voted #1 in a USA Today's survey for Best Dog Friendly place. The views are awesome but the Dog Chapel is even more amazing.
