My story
Olympia is a member of the Rufftail Runners at APA!, which means she gets to go on walks and runs on the trail at Lady Bird Lake with her volunteer friends at the shelter. This spirited lady struts along, beaming with joy and flashing that adorable smile that melts hearts wherever she goes. She's always ready for an adventure, and she gets really excited about car rides, especially when she gets to ride shotgun! She's also a big fan of fetch and isn't above doing some zoomies when she gets really excited. This highly affectionate lady and will lean against you for butt scratches, gives gentle kisses in return and is more than happy settle down for a nice cuddle session. On top of being a sweetie, she also has excellent manners, is house and crate-trained and quiet when left home alone. She's friendly when meeting new people and gentle when taking treats. Olympia is also a smart pup, and she's thriving in APA!'s Total Obedience Program, so much so that she recently became TOP Dog Ready, which means Olympia has already learned all the skills in her training plan! The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP Dog, Olympia works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help her learn the skills to become the best dog she can be! 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 Olympia will go to a specific place in your home on command. Olympia 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 her 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: When you and Olympia first lay eyes on each other, we think you'll know she's the one, and she can't wait to hop in your car and start your first adventure together.
