Dog lovers and their dogs love getting together with other dog lovers, don't we?

That's why we here at Godfrey's enjoy planning fun events for you and your dog!

 

 

We love the positive energy flow, the stories, the lessons learned, laughs, the puppy kisses, hugs, and the antics of our four-legged customers.

We have a real commitment to the ultimate health and wellness of dogs, so you'll see events focused on learning more about just that. And dogs, please remember to keep your humans on a leash when visiting us. We want everyone to be safe here at Godfrey's!

Keystone Pet Enhanced Therapy Services (KPETS), a 501C-3 organization originating in Lancaster, PA, is

expanding their volunteer canine therapy services program by bringing it to Berks County and Godfrey's is hosting them! This is a statement that defines their mission: "Promoting the Healing and Rehabilitation Benefits of the Animal/Human Bond." Sounds pretty powerful to me!

We held the first KPETS classes for Berks County here in April and May 2012. Charlie and Lake, Barb Emmett's two golden retrievers, have gone through the KPETS program and are now certified KPETS therapy dogs, so ask her about the program if you are interested.

     Charlie and Lake, ready for a KPETS visit!

First Step: Attend KPETS ORIENTATION session This is a "People Only" session (no dogs).

An application fee of $35 per handler is charged to cover administrative costs, including handouts and other expenses.  However, after completing  the registration process, this fee is applied to the current year’s dues.

The orientation session is approximately three hours long and provides information about KPETS’ mission, services, what the expectations are for the pet and handlers, and what to expect when you go on visits. Also provided is information about the many opportunities available and how you and your dog can get involved.

Second Step:  Attend KPETS Group Evaluation session This session is to assess your dog for future therapy visits. Basic obedience is needed. Socialization, response to loud noises, interaction with strangers, rough petting, reactions to other dogs, etc. will all be assessed. Prerequisite: attendance at a KETS Orientation session. The Group Evaluation is held in our Canine Learning Center, the separate building on the left, when going up to the shop entrance.

Third  Step: Two separate on-site evaluations

On-site evaluations are scheduled directly with each evaluator for convenience.

This will give you some “on-the-job” training as well as allow the KPETS evaluator see how your dog handles actual real life situations. Pat Emmett, Training Manager and Certified Dog Trainer at Godfrey's, is a KPETS on-site evaluator. He can be contacted at training@difk9.com.

Their volunteer opportunities for you and your dog include:

Visiting Opportunities
Long term care facilities
Reading to Dogs Programs
Rehab – with physical, occupational, speech, cognitive therapies, etc.
Special needs children
At-risk teens
Fun doggie parties and presentations
Community outreach booths to promote animal assisted therapy
Canine Disaster Relief connections / assistance

"Therapy Dog" Assessment Prep/Training Class

 Think your dog might have the right stuff to be a therapy dog but need to work on a few things first?

Attend this class at Godfrey's!

Start Date: Classes are running throughout the year on a regular basis. Contact Pat Emmett at training@difk9.com to sign up for this class.

Time:         Saturdays from 1:45pm-2:45pm in Godfrey's Learning Center

Instructor: Pat Emmett, KPA Certified Instructor, KPETS Group Evaluation Leader and KPETS On-Site Evaluator

Class Description: In this class, we will work on the behaviors needed to successfully complete the KPETS assessment for dog and handler.  Your dog should have received some basic manners and behaviors in order to take the class.  Those would include: sit, down, stay, leave it, and wait for 30 seconds at the end of the leash.  Also, good walking skills by handler and dog are imperative in order to succeed.

Cost: $100   $10 is donated to KPETS

Please note:  Completion of this class does not guarantee that you and your dog will pass the evaluation.  In addition, Pat will not be able to evaluate your dog in the "Group Evaluation" step towards KPETS certification since he will be involved in your dog's training via this class.

 

            

                                                HELP LOCAL PETS IN NEED

Godfrey's is a collection point for gently used, unused, no longer needed canine items. We also donate out of code foods and treats. We peridocally send these items to local rescues that are grateful for the items;organizations include Leo's Helping Paws, Wolf Sanctuary of PA, Hillside SPCA, and more. We have a wooden box on our porch for your items. Let's fill it up!
