This sweet girl enjoys learning new things and is 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, Nala 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! Nala 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 Nala successfully completes all the skills on her training plan, she will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Nala 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 Nala after adoption and master all the TOP dog skills together.
