If you're looking for the ultimate playmate, come meet Clyde. This busy boy is eager to play play play all day. He's delighted to play with other dogs, toys, people or whatever's handy. And he loves to play fetch with balls and squeakies, then he's off to do some exploring and sniff everything in sight.

Clyde does have his snuggly side. Once he's got all his playing and exploring out of his system, he'll want to snooze at your feet. He's house-trained, and this smart pup already answers to the 'sit,' 'come,' 'drop' and 'stay' commands. He's also in APA!'s Total Obedience Program. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Clyde has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help him learn the skills to become the best dog he can be! Clyde is learning skills like walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers or other dogs, staying in a sit or down until told "free," coming when called and "Place, which means he will go to a specific place in your home on command.

Once Clyde successfully completes all the skills on his training plan, he will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Clyde is working 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 Clyde 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 fun-loving boy is looking for a home that will take him to wide-open spaces and hopefully one with another dog or two to play with. If that sounds like your family, come meet Clyde!
