DogFest Dallas -Everyone Welcome!

The Sound at Cypress Waters

Gather your friends, family and dogs for a day of fun! The human-canine bond is truly unique. On our happiest and hardest of days, our dogs love us endlessly. They are our everyday heroes in so many ways. Whether as service dogs, working dogs or pet dogs, there are countless tales of man's best friend doing amazing things.

Join the fun at your local DogFest Texas event or participate virtually as we celebrate the joy dogs bring to our lives. Registration is free. Fundraising is encouraged and highly appreciated. There are sponsorship, volunteer and vendor opportunities too!

When registering, be sure to indicate if you are bringing a dog to get your free DogFest dog bandana. Then fundraise to qualify for some fun DogFest swag!

DogFest supports the mission of Canine Companions to enhance the lives of people with disabilities by providing expertly trained service dogs free of charge. These dogs make a profound impact through the jobs they do like opening doors, picking up dropped items, alerting to sounds and much more.
