Need a well-made, well-fitted classic coat for your dog this season?
"Meet - Measure -Mingle" Apparel Event by Bel Bijoux
Bel Bijoux is comprised of a Maribel and Jana Nieves creating one of a kind couture for people and pets. Inspiration stems from classic to modern fashion in all styles. Buying "off the rack" based on standard breed measurements works for many pure bred dogs as well as many others, but it doesn't work for all dogs, especially those that are mixed breeds. Finding a great fit can be daunting! That's why we want to introduce you to these two ladies who are making custom high quality outerwear. Whenever possible, Bel Bijoux creates eco-friendly pieces by redesigning the finest fabrics and Embellishments. Bel Bijoux Couture designs have debuted in a national television spot on NAT GEO WILD show Spoiled Rotten Pets, "The Barking Bride." They have also been featured on local 69 NEWS. These ladies are coming to us from Allentown.
What we like about their work, too, is that while it is stylish, it's not "over the edge." It's classy style at a reasonable price! No matter what style you and your dog prefer, from classic to alternative, Bel Bijoux will make it for you.
Maribel and Jana will be taking key size measurements for your dog and we'll keep those measurements on file here at Godfrey's to help with future needs, like harness fittings. And if you order a custom piece from them on this day, you will receive a special "Fall Fest" price! Orders taken will come back to Godfrey's for pick-up by you in 3 weeks. They'll also be bringing some of their stock inventory for purchase that day!

"LEVEL 3-AROUND TOWN": STARTS TUES, OCT. 22, 7:15pm
Learn skills to work with your dog around distractions when you go out into the world. This class will continue to work on the skills from previous levels with the addition of more distractions. At this level, the goal is to help you and your canine companion prepare to go anywhere together. Six weeks. Prerequisite: Canine Companion 2 or instructor permission.
"JUST GOT HOME" Specialty Class: STARTS WED., OCT. 23, 6PM
Not everyone wants a puppy, and getting an older dog is a great choice; however, these dogs may need to learn or brush up on some skills that will make them pleasures to live with. In this class we’ll cover “pre-training” skills such as name response, orienting to handler, watch me, wait/impulse control, drop it/trade, leave it, crate training and games, and targeting. Six weeks. For newly or recently acquired dogs ages six months or older.
"FLYBALL" STARTS WED., OCT. 23, 7:15PM
Controlled Chaos! Drag racing for dogs! These are phrases that have been used to describe the sport of flyball. Dogs race down over jumps, trigger a spring loaded box to release a ball, and return over the jumps with the ball to their handler along with three other dogs on their team. Lots of fun training your dog to work with you in the midst of lots of distractions. Six weeks. Prerequisites: Dogs MUST be dog and human friendly. A good recall is needed as well.
Keep Your Dog Active in Winter
in Our Conditioning Center!
Can't get your dog to our park because it's raining or too cold for you to be out there for an hour? Or maybe you yourself are recovering from an injury and can't get your dog out for his or her walk? Perhaps you have a need to keep your dog in shape for agility or other dog sports? Or your dog simply is going nuts staying indoors so much?
Then schedule your dog for an indoor exercise session with Nicole here at Godfrey's.
With some time on our canine treadmill and some exercises on our FitPAWs® canine equiment your dog will get the exercise and stimulation needed. Give her at call at Godfrey's at 610-777-5755 to arrange it! She's in Tuesdays, Thursdays, and every other Saturday for appointments to work with you and your dog in the Conditioning Center.
Help Us Spread the Word - Let 'Em Know
"Dog is Family"
Have you spotted a "DIF" sticker on the road? Let us know!
There's a difference in attitude and lifestyle when dog is truly considered family. We don't abandon them in old age...we never abandon them. We want them with us every day and there for all times in our daily lives. We want to do the best we can do for them, each day and in every way.
Let our community around town know how you feel. Spread the word; there's a "DIF"ference when dogs are family. At Godfrey's, we reflect that sentiment and hope you share it with us.
Our stickers sell for $1.99. $1 from each sale is donated to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, the nation's largest sanctuary for abused and neglected animals, where animals can live out their lives in peace and with love.
