This cutie has a calm side, too. She'll lick your face and gently take treats from you. She'll lean against you for rubs and loves butt scratches. She's eager to learn; she already knows Sit, Down and Stay.
Olivia is seeking a quiet home with a big yard for her to run and play. She does well with kids and dogs who like to play roughly.
Olivia enjoys learning new things and is in the Total Obedience Program. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Olivia as a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help her learn the skills to become the best dog she can be! She 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," as well as 'place' (running-to and staying-in a designated spot) and coming when called.
Once Olivia successfully completes all the skills on her training plan she will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Olivia is working hard to become a wonderful pet and as a part of APA's Total Obedience Program you can work with APA staff to continue to build a training relationship with Olivia 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
