Top Dog Contest 2017

Each year the City Clerk’s Office hosts a contest for Lebanon’s Top Dog. The contest is open to all dog owners whose dogs are registered in the City of Lebanon. This year marked the City Clerk’s 6th Annual "Top Dog" contest. 

When Is the Winner Announced?

During the first council meeting in May, our Mayor randomly drew the winner for the Top Dog Contest as well as two runners up, from all entry forms which were submitted to our office. The winner and runners up were then publicly announced and prize packages awarded at a special presentation during the Lebanon Police Department’s K9 Awareness Day in May at West Lebanon Feed & Supply. Winners of the Top Dog Contest can be found on our Top Dog Winners page.
