A group of children are hoping to be top dogs at Crufts.

Five youngsters from the junior group of Corton Agility Training Society will compete against others from across the country in the young kennel club team final at Crufts next month.

One member of the team, Rosie Sawyer, ten, who is a pupil at Broad Town CofE Primary School, will also be competing individually.

Jillian Sawyer, head trainer and secretary of the club, said: “The juniors all run and train either their own dogs or family dogs and put a lot of work in during club time and at home.”

Those taking part are RosieSawyer, Becky Foster, Millie Sawyer and Josh and Emily Belcher.

The team is also trained by Becki Belcher, will be taking part in an agility course with their dogs in the competition on March 9.

A team of juniors from Corton qualified last year and came third overall, and had a semi-finalist in the individual junior event.
