Chubbs is a dog who is in love with life. He adores chasing balls, exploring his world when out for a walk or run, and then settles down for all kinds of cuddling and love. He's not above telling you that you are not nearly finished with the belly rubs should you stop too soon!

Chubbs is a people-pleasing ball full of love. In the shelter, he is getting one-on-one training to learn the finer points of home life. Chubbs is loyal to his family and tries his hardest to do be the best dog he can be! This special boy knows sit and down and shake. And performs them in rapid succession because he knows his favorite thing is coming. TREATS!

Chubbs is such a good training partner that he's now 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, Chubbs 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! Chubbs 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," and coming when called.

Once Chubbs successfully completes all the skills on his training plan, he will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Chubbs 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 Chubbs 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:

If you would like to play and cuddle to your heart's content with an appreciative, happy, goofy, adorable, wonderful dog who would like nothing more than to be yours forever, come meet Chubbs!
