Faraon's intelligence, eagerness to please and his sweet-tooth have made him a joy to train. Not only does Faraon know basic commands such as "Sit," "Down," "Stay," "Relax"; but also "Home," "Heel," "Spin," and "Touch"!
With this smart pup's insatiable appetite for learning, it's no surprise that Faraon has excelled in APA!'s Total Obedience Program (TOP), which is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP Dog, Faraon has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help him learn the skills to become the best dog he can be!
Faraon is now TOP Dog Ready, which means he has already learned all the skills in his training plan, including walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers, calmly walking past another dog, staying in a sit or down until told "free," coming when called and "place, which means he will go to a special spot in your home on command.
Faraon has worked 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 Faraon after adoption and master all the TOP dog skills together. Check out a video on APA's CGC program, on which the TOP was based: https://vimeo.com/89434193
Faraon is a model dog that would love nothing more than to be your one and only. Come meet this amazing pup!
