DogFest Bay Area is celebrating the community of people and dogs that make it possible for Canine Companions to place assistance dogs with 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.


Join the fun October 27!

Grab your friends, family and dogs and head to Jack London Square in Oakland, CA on October 27 for DogFest Bay Area. Once again, we’ll be partnering with Boo! Bark, Brews + Bites in making this a not-to-be-missed event! 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.

Last year over 2,500 supporters enjoyed a great day at DogFest Bay Area. Attendees had the chance to meet assistance dogs and puppies in training, listen to a graduate speaker, do a little pet shopping from local vendors, enjoy great beer and food, pet caricatures drawings, face painting, a costume contest and much, much more!

We look forward to celebrating with our supporters, graduates, volunteers and friends again in 2018.

Earn an EARLY Fundraising Gift! Anyone who registers and raises $125 or more by September 27 will receive a commemorative DogFest t-shirt on event day!
