Bayfield K9

Bayfield County Sheriff Paul Susienka and Deputy Matt Leino are gearing up to welcome a dog for the county’s new K9 unit after fundraising efforts proved successful. The department is now weighing which of two K9 training programs Leino will attend to learn how to handle the dog.

The Bayfield County Sheriff’s Department is finalizing plans to find a company to train the county’s first-ever K9 unit for duty after local businesses and residents have lined up to support the program.

The Sheriff’s Department launched fundraising efforts to add a police dog to the duty roster earlier this year, and its success has accelerated plans to get the dog’s paws on the ground in Bayfield County.
