After careful consideration and review, we had to make the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 K-9 Trials. The K-9 Trials is one of the favorite community events in Washington County and we know so many of you look forward to this annual event. All of us at the Sheriff’s Office Foundation and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office were looking forward to this year’s event, but due to the COVID-19 crisis and current recommendations from the Oregon Health Authority and Washington County Health and Human Services, along with consideration for the safety of the community and staff, we had to cancel.
Due to the unknown timeline of the COVID-19 crisis and the large coordinated effort it takes to put on this event each year, rescheduling to later in the year was not a feasible option. We will work hard to set a date for the 2021 K-9 Trials and will share that with you as soon as we can.
We appreciate your support for the K-9 units, who are still working to keep us all safe in these trying times. Be well, take care of your loved ones and please follow the guidelines as directed by our local, state and federal officials to combat this pandemic.
Thank you for all your support during this difficult time and we look forward to seeing everyone is 2021.
For the past 16 years, thousands of spectators have experienced the fun of the Washington County K9 Trials, which brings together police k9 teams from around the state to compete in a series of events. Doors open at 10am, kicking off the start of the safety fair and vendor displays. Please leave pets at home (service animals OK).
The safety fair features a variety of local public safety agencies, such as fire departments, 9-1-1 dispatch, Sheriff's Office special teams, and more. There will also be many other local businesses and organizations attending the vendor fair. These activities start at 10am, so stop by before the competition starts at 11am.
Competition begins at 11am and includes area search, agility course, suspect apprehension, handler protection, vehicle extraction and fastest dog. Gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded to the top three dogs of each event, based on the fastest times. "Top Dog" is awarded to the overall winner. Stay for the meet-and-greet on the field!
Our infamous k9 plushies will be for sale at the event, which feature your favorite working dogs from the Washington County Sheriff's Office. These hot items are $20 per dog or five for $80, and are expected to sell out fast. Arrive early to get yours!
