Olympia is always eager to learn new things and is thriving in APA!'s Total Obedience Program, so much so that she recently became TOP Dog Ready, which means Olympia has already learned all the skills in her training plan! The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP Dog, Olympia has 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!
Dogs in the program learn skills including sit and down, walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers, calmly walking past another dog, staying in a sit or down until told "free," coming when called and "Place", which means Olympia will go to a specific place in your home on command.
Olympia 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 her 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
