  • Most Unique Dog - We know all dogs are beautiful and special, but does yours stand out from the crowd?

Obedience: Handlers will compete in a Beginner Novice AKC format competition. Winner will receive the Golden Bone Award and a chance to compete in Best in Show.

Agility: Handlers will guide dogs through an obstacle course complete with jumps, a tunnel, weave poles and more in a race for both time and accuracy. Winner will receive the Golden Bone Award and a chance to compete in Best in Show.

Walk for the Animals - Animal Welfare League of Arlington

It's that time of year once again - time to Walk for the Animals! On Saturday, May 12, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., AWLA will once again host its annual Walk for the Animals. A yearly favorite, this event brings together more than 600 local animal lovers and their canine companions for a walk to benefit AWLA shelter animals and support the services and programs that the League provides to the community.

Frolick Dogs is pleased to host the agility course at this year's event!

The Walk and related festivities at the shelter allow AWLA to showcase the work we do, where we do it, and, most importantly, the animals in our care. Walkers will have their choice of two routes: a three-mile walk or a one-mile stroll. Both will begin and end at AWLA. Participants can enjoy tours of the shelter, meeting adoptable animals, amusements including a balloon artist, a face painter, dog training and trick demonstrations, a doggy costume contest, music, a photo booth, food trucks, vendors, and more!
