In addition to toys, Cricket loves being pet and getting belly rubs and going on walks where she gives great eye contract to keep those treats coming. She also loves training. In fact, Cricket is such a good training buddy that she's in APA's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program, and she excels in her training sessions. She works with a volunteer trainer several times a week toward the goal of passing the American Kennel Club's CGC test. Cricket's a quick study and is already excelling at loose leash walks, working walks, "roll over", "come", "sit" and "down".
To pass the CGC test, a dog must demonstrate obedience and general reliability in real world situations. Dogs in the CGC program learn to walk nicely on leash, sit calmly when approached by strangers or another dog, won't approach people or dogs without permission, greet people appropriately, stay in a sit or down until told, and come when called. As part of APA's CGC program you can work with APA to continue to build a training relationship with Cricket after adoption and get officially CGC certified for free!
