Poppy Seed's two favorite things are food and toys. She likes to carry a toy around on her walks at the shelter - as if she needed to be any more adorable! She's also learning that when she sits or gives eye contact, she gets more treats, so she now does them without being asked. It's hard to say no to that face, so we keep the treats coming.
Poppy Seed has spent some time in a home and seems to be housebroken. She's a happy girl who just needs some toys to play with, and she'll stay entertained.
Poppy is also 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, Poppy Seed 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! 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," and coming when called.
Once Poppy Seed successfully completes all the skills on her training plan she will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Poppy Seed 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 Poppy Seed 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
