On Saturday, May 20, 2023, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with the Sheriff’s Office Foundation, will hold the 16th Annual Washington County K9 Trials at Hillsboro Stadium. During this event, law enforcement K9 teams from throughout the region compete for the coveted title of “Top Dog.”
This free, family event is an excellent opportunity for the public to connect with local public safety agencies and learn about the talented K9 units protecting our communities.
Competition events include area search, agility course, suspect apprehension, fastest dog, and handler protection. Gold, silver, and bronze medals are awarded to the top three dogs of each event based on the fastest times. The “Top Dog” designation will be awarded to the overall winner based on a point system for each event.
In addition to the entertaining and fast-paced competition, spectators will enjoy a safety fair consisting of local public safety agencies, a vendor fair, food and drinks available for purchase, and a meet-and-greet with the K9s after the competition.
Bring the whole family, but please leave pets at home (service animals are welcome).
The safety fair and vendor fair open at 10 a.m., and the K9 competition begins at 11 a.m.
