In fact, Brindle is such a quick study that he's 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, Brindle 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! Brindle 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 Brindle successfully completes all the skills on his training plan, he will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Brindle 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 Brindle after adoption and master all the TOP dog skills together.
