Dog Mountain, home of Stephen Huneck Gallery & The Dog Chapel, is set on 150 acres of a private mountaintop in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. The grounds are open from dawn til dusk for people and their dogs. 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. Several times a year, Dog Mountain hosts unforgettable Dog Parties for hundreds of people and their dogs. These joyous occasions aren't to be missed!
Thousands of people from around the world travel to visit The Dog Chapel each year. The walls are covered from floor to ceiling with photos, drawings, letters and other memorials to beloved departed pets. It’s a unique and moving experience for all animal lovers.
The Stephen Huneck Gallery features a collection of the Vermont folk artist’s original woodcuts, prints, carvings, furniture, gifts, and NY Times best-selling series of children’s books. Visitors experience the enchanting work of Stephen Huneck and can take home a Dog Mountain memento.
Leashes are optional 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.
In 2017, Dog Mountain was transferred to Friends of Dog Mountain, a nonprofit organization established by friends and family of the Huneck’s and whose mission is to both steward Dog Mountain for public use and curate the important artistic contributions of the late Stephen Huneck.
