Police K-9 units throughout the area, took a break from catching bad guys, to take part in a competition, but only one was named, "Top Dog."

The Washington County Sheriff's Office hosted the 14th annual K-9 trials in Hillsboro this afternoon where the dogs were tested on everything from agility and search skills to speed and handler protection.

And this year, Hillsboro Police Officer Schmidt and K-9 blazer won "Top Dog" honors.
