We would like to thank Penske Automotive Group for their sponsorship AGAIN this year. They have numerous dealerships and vehicle rental facilities throughout the valley. Please keep them in mind when looking for a new or used vehicle or you need to rent a truck. They are great to us. Let's return the favor.




The Arizona Law Enforcement Canine Association in conjunction with the City of Mesa and the Mesa Police Department K-9 unit, are happy to announce that the dates have been set for the The Desert Dog Police K-9 Trials 2017. We would like to invite you to attend the DESERT DOG POLICE K-9 TRIALS, that will be held at the Sloan Park, on May 5th & 6th, 2018. Click here for more information on the stadium.

During the weekend events, you will be able to observe many active Police, Military, and Government canine teams from around the nation competing in various field exercises. Most of the events will be timed for the purpose of a tiebreaker. Many of these teams will also be competing in various building exercises. Because the building, narcotics and explosives searches must take place in a controlled environment, we are unable to showcase this part of the competition. However, demonstrations will be performed during some of the intermissions. Vendors will be on site selling shirts, hats and other canine and police related products. Canine, SWAT and Fire Vehicles will be on display, as well as a Police Helicopter.

The events that the teams will be competing in include, Handler Protection, Tactical Building Search, Building Search, Agility / Obstacle course, Area Search, Narcotics and Explosives Search. Click here for more information on these events.

The annual Desert Dog Police K-9 Trials are not funded by any public funds. All costs associated with this event must be raised through donations, sales of program ad space or vendor booth fees. If you or your business would like to become involved in supporting or sponsoring these trials, setting up a vendor booth, advertising in the program, K-9 Team entry, or assisting your local K-9 unit, contact Scott Callender at scott@desertdogk9trials.com, or sign up for our K-9 Team mailing list, vendor list or program ad and we will send you the information as soon as it becomes available.

We hope that you have a wonderful time and learn a little about the K-9 teams that are working the streets on a regular basis.

Contact Scott Callender at scott@desertdogk9trials.com for any questions.
