Celebrating the ADA with a DogFest Walk ’N Roll

As the anniversary of the ADA rolls around DAC NW is busy partnering with a great event in Sandpoint, Idaho. After the success of our “Going to the Dogs” event in 2017, we have joined forces with Canine Companions for Independence in putting on the DogFest, July 28th 10 am to 1pm. Anyone can grab a leash and join the fun at this dog-friendly community fundraiser that raises funds to provide highly trained assistance dogs to people with disabilities free of charge.

There will be music and activities for both dogs and kids. Canine contests like Catch the Treat and Dog Limbo, balloon animals by Merry the Balloon Clown, a silent auction featuring incredible dog houses made by local architects and builders.

DAC NW plans on providing “pup”corn and a wheelchair obstacle course to try out. You will have the opportunity to meet the Honorary Chair Dr. Marty Becker, “America’s Veterinarian who was the resident centenary contributor on “Good Morning America” for 17 years, and hear about Ken, the graduate dog who was matched with Peggy at the Bonner County District Attorneys Office. Ken is clearly popular and provides a calming presence there.  Music provided by Sandpoint DJ Bashful Dan Young. And plenty of Canine Companion Puppies will be there!

Participants are encourage to put together a team of dog walkers or “rollers” and recruit members to join in. Enter in the Best Owner/Dog Look-a-Like contest. Registration is free!
