Sarah Saddoris, a student at Riverside High School and Greer resident, won the Novice Trainer Division and placed fourth in the Rally Novice class at the AKC Juniors Classic obedience championship in Orlando, Fla.

Other award winners representing the Dog Trainers Workshop in Fountain Inn, ages 8-17, were Palmer Cross, Open Handler Division, Morgan Gardner, second and third place in the Open Trainer Division, Elise Jerozal, third place in the Novice Trainer Division, and Spencer Pardee, second place in Beginner Novice.

"Training and learning to compete with a dog is such a valuable life experience," Connie Cleveland, of the Dog Trainers Workshop, said. "Dog training develops problem-solving skills, discipline, effort, teamwork, and confidence. It's an activity that's a bit different from typical extracurricular activities for children – but it's also a sport that can last a lifetime, and offers so much variety and challenge."
