Mizuki enjoys learning new things and is in APA!'s Total Obedience Program (TOP), which is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, she has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help her learn skills like walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers or other dogs, staying in a sit or down until told "free," coming when called and "place, which means she will go to a specific place in your home on command.

As part of APA's Total Obedience Program you can work with APA staff to continue to build a training relationship with Mizuki 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
