Celebrate the community of people and dogs that make it possible for Canine Companions to show that the most advanced technology capable of transforming the lives of people with disabilities has a cold nose and a warm heart.

Join the fun Sunday, September 10, 2017!

DogFest Walk 'n Roll is coming to Washington, DC! So grab your leash and get ready to have a tail-waggin' good time! We’ll change lives, four paws at a time™. 

Grab your leashes and head to Reston Town Center in Reston, VA on Sunday, September 10, 2017 for the 4th annual DogFest Washington DC benefiting Canine Companions for Independence.  Furry friends and their families are invited to join us for a day of fun, festivities, graduate speakers, dog demonstrations, music, food and more.  Admission is free, parking is free and our event is accessible. 

Last year, hundreds joined us from DC, Maryland, Virginia and Delaware to walk and roll in our biggest celebration yet raising nearly $65,000 with an agility course, demonstrations, treats, freebies, raffles, and best of all, stories of real graduate teams who live and work here in the DMV.  Canine Companions for Independence provides highly-trained assistance dogs to adults, children and veterans with disabilities FREE of charge.  Work with us to make this possible!

We look forward to celebrating with our supporters, graduates, volunteers and friends.
