Knighten would make a great match for an active family looking for an exercise partner. He'll join you on any walk, and isn't opposed to a run. In fact, he enjoys running around playing chase with his volunteer friends.

Did we mention he is friendly? He assists to our daily playgroup where he has doggie friends that he romps around with. As for his people, he's been a real loverboy with everyone he meets - he loves being around all kinds of people and can't wait to share some affection!

Knighten enjoys learning new things and is in the Total Obedience Program. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modelled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Knighten has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help him/her learn the skills to become the best dog he can be! He 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 Knighten successfully completes all the skills on his training plan he will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Knighten 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 Knighten 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:

This wonderful boy will bring smiles to his new family for years to come!
