Nine of the 18 obedience teams fielded by Connie Cleveland’s Dog Trainers Workshop from Simpsonville earned ribbons in the AKC Obedience Classic in Orlando, Fla.

 

Two Greer residents saw their dogs place in the American Kennel Club Obedience Classic in Orlando, Fla.

Nancy Godbey’s Irish Setter, “Geisha”, placed seventh in the novice division and took highest scoring Irish Setter.

Annette Sizemore’s Golden Retriever, “Circus”, placed fourth in the masters division.

Nine of the 18 obedience teams fielded by Connie Cleveland’s Dog Trainers Workshop from Simpsonville earned ribbons.

Other ribbons awarded:

• Barb Mina, Golden Retriever, “Brody”, winner in the Novice division,

• Spencer Pardee, Standard Poodle, “Teddy”, third place in the Junior Division, Preferred Novice Class,

• Connie Cleveland, Labrador Retriever, “Nate”, fourth in the Open division,

• Pam Ambuhl, Golden Retriever, “Emmy”, seventh in the Utility division,

• Kay Canaan, English Cocker, “Ellie”, ninth in the novice division, highest scoring dog in breed,

• Cat Perry, Labrador Retriever, “Wyatt”, 10th in the Masters Division,

• Lou Ann McGahey, “Brittany Lulu”, 10th in Utility, highest scoring dog in breed,

• Ellen Pfann, German Shepherd, “Brie”, 10th in Novice.

“Barb (Mina) and ‘Brody’s’ first place in Novice was fantastic,” said Cleveland, CEO and founder of Dog Trainers Workshop.

“To have Spencer, a sixth grader, and his poodle, “Teddy”, place in Junior Division, which includes juniors to the age of 18, is very special. And then, DTW’s teams took nine of forty available ribbons at the Classic this year – that is a great achievement. But I’m proudest that we had eighteen teams actually competing in the Classic.”
