This pretty pup is in APA!'s Total Obedience Program. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Josie has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help her learn the skills to become the best dog she can be! Josie is learning skills like sit and down, walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers or other dogs, staying in a sit or down until told "free," coming when called and "Place, which means she will go to a specific place in your home on command.

Once Josie successfully completes all the skills on her training plan, she will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Josie is working hard to become a wonderful companion, and as a part of APA's Total Obedience Program you can work with APA staff to continue to build a training relationship with Josie after adoption and master all the TOP dog skills together.
