DogFest DFW 2019


The Jelen Boys

Welcome to our team page for DogFest


Life is more fun with friends… and dogs! Spencer, Jomar, Cal, Jesper, Darren, Baylor, Houston, Arch, Simba, Nelson, Arrow and Reuben welcome you to our team (some have gone to the rainbow bridge but they are still in our hearts)!

That’s why Reuben and I putting together a team to participate in Canine Companions DogFest Walk ‘n Roll. Together we’ve set a fundraising goal to help fund the work of Canine Companions for Independence. October 5, 2019 is the day of FUN at the Texas Canine Companions for Independence training facility. This fundraiser will help us with their mission to provide highly-trained assistance dogs to adults, children and veterans with disabilities FREE of charge.

I will join other dogs and their owners for a day of fun, festivities, graduate speakers, dog demonstrations, and more. The 6th region for Canine Companions is open and already fulfilling its mission of providing dogs to Texas residents is fully operational! We're proud to show you the training rooms, cabins for graduates and the kennels currently housing over 24 dogs in professional training!

I have been retired for a year now and I’m raising my 12th puppy for the organization, Reuben.  He is a black lab full of spunk and very smart!  He’s mastering all of his commands before he heads to doggy college in November.

Leading up to the event, we’re raising money to support Canine Companions. The impact they make on the lives of people with disabilities is incredible. The changes to the lives of the recipients of our dogs is simply amazing. Help me get to my fundraising goal by donating online.

If you do the giving, I’ll do the walking so we can get more of these amazing Canine Companions assistance dogs into the lives of those who need them.
