May is quite the athlete and loves fetching and water - and especially loves when these two are combined. She's been known to stick her whole head underwater to retrieve a ball. As much fun as she is to play with, she is also very well-behaved in a home. She is housebroken, calm, and respectful of human items and food. She is content to snuggle with you or lay by your feet as you watch TV.
May walks well on leash and would make a great hiking partner. She also seems to learn quickly, so we've put her in our TOP Dog program. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, May 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! May 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 May successfully completes all the skills on her training plan she will be considered TOP Dog Ready! May 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 May 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
Aside from her always increasing skills, May's just a doll and a delight to be around. She has the biggest, brightest smile and is so much fun! Come visit her at APA today.
