If you want a goofy snuggler, Thor is going to fill that bill. When you meet him at the shelter he will seem on high alert, but once away from the shelter environment, snuggler deluxe and best friend are his M.O. And he loves his treats, so is quite motivated for lessons and to learn.
Thor seems to listen totally, with his ears showing he is paying attention. They will move to the top of his head when he's listening.
In addition to all of Thor's wonderful natural qualities, he has been working hard to be a dog you can take anywhere with pride. Thor has been working on his Canine Good Citizen skills with APA staff and volunteers. To pass the American Kennel Club's CGC test (and be considered CGC-ready by APA), a dog must demonstrate obedience and general reliability in real world situations.
An APA CGC-ready dog knows sit and down, walks nicely on leash, will sit calmly when you are approached by strangers or another dog, won't approach people or dogs without permission, stays in sit or down until told "free," and comes when called. This training is very connected to your dog's relationship with you, so regardless of where Thor is in this training program at the time of adoption, APA will work with you to help you establish this relationship and keep the training going.
