St. Johnsbury Welcomes You… and Your Pets!

The town of St. Johnsbury welcomes all kinds of pets, and there’s a special place in the St. Johnsbury community for dogs. Every dog and dog-lover can revel in the joy of Dog Mountain: 150 unspoiled acres for romping, where dogs are not just welcome, they are cherished.

The St. Johnsbury community cares for families, and they count four-legged members as part of the clan. The St. Johnsbury Chamber of Commerce has developed some guidelines to make sure everyone is safe and comfortable when visiting.

Dogs Welcome Decal:

When you see the Stephen Huneck "Dogs Welcome" decal at a local establishment, here's what the merchant is saying:

  • We are happy you’re traveling with your dog, but please leave your pet outside unless we invite you to come in with your dog.

  • We have a water dish that can be put outside (if it’s not already there).

  • We may have treats for your dog.

  • Ask us to guide you to areas where you can walk with your dog, including Dog Mountain, St. Johnsbury Town Forest, Fred Mold Park, and the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail.
