Button is the perfect combination of couch potato and playmate and is down for whatever you are. But when he senses that it's playtime, Button quickly shifts into clown mode and loves to bounce around and have fun. Then when playtime is up, he's ready to snuggle again.
Button is house-broken and does well in a crate, but is also fine when left free to roam the house. He's very eager to please and proving how trainable he is in APA!'s Total Obedience Program, so much so that he recently became TOP Dog Ready, which means Button has already learned all the skills in his training plan!
The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test.
Dogs in the program learn skills 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," coming when called and "Place", which means Button will go to a specific place in your home on command.
Button 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 him 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
Button would love a home with older kids to play with and a family that's comfortable setting boundaries. In return, he promises to be the best boy he can be. Come meet him!
