Second to playing, Ozzie loves being pet by his human friends and getting scritches on his neck and behind his ears. And he'll flip your hand with his nose and stand or sit on your feet to remind you it's time for pets. He loves to go for walks and look up at you with his happy face to show what a great time he's having!
Smart and obedient, Ozzie knows an amazing list of commands: Sit, Wait, Heal, Place, Down, Free, Up, Off, Leave It, Here, Catch. And he's crate, house and leash-trained! In fact Ozzie's such a smart pup, he's thriving 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, Ozzie 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!
Ozzie 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," and coming when called. Ozzie 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 Ozzie 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
Ozzie is eager to please and wants a sidekick who can give him lots of playtime and affection. Come meet this sweet pup!
