Full of affection for his people, Nash is also already very well-trained. He knows sit, down, place, has stellar recall, walks well on leash, and it should come as no surprise that he's been thriving 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, Nash 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!
Nash is now TOP Dog Ready, which means he has already learned all the skills in his training plan, including sit and down, walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers, calmly walking past another dog, staying in a sit or down until told "free," and coming when called. Nash also knows "Place, which means he will go to a specific place in your home on command.
Nash has worked 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 Nash 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
Nash hopes for a home with a yard to romp in and people who will continue his training and are comfortable setting boundaries. In return Nash promises to be a loving, loyal and entertaining companion. Come meet him today!
