Grab your friends, family and dogs and head to Scottsdale Civic Center Mall in Scottsdale, AZ on February 23, 2019 for the 5th annual DogFest Phoenix benefiting Canine Companions for Independence. Furry friends and families are invited to join us for a day of fun, festivities, graduate speakers, dog demonstrations, music, food and more! Registration is free and will open in September. Follow DogFest Phoenix on Facebook for updates.

Join the fun on February 23, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.!


DogFest Phoenix is celebrating the community of people and dogs that make it possible for Canine Companions to place assistance dogs to children, adults and veterans free of charge. These highly trained assistance dogs make a profound impact through the jobs they do, including opening doors, picking up dropped items, alerting to sounds and much more.
So don’t miss out on DogFest. Join the fun - and Give a Dog a Job!

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

We are excited that Krystle Henderson is returning as our DogFest Phoenix emcee! Krystle is an Emmy award winning meteorologist, anchor and multimedia journalist for 12 News. Krystle became a reporter to make a difference and to give a voice to people who might not otherwise have one.
