Godfrey’s–Welcome to Dogdom, located in Mohnton, recently hired trainer Tanya Turgeon, who will be offering Dog Tricks classes for a maximum of three dogs per session. Interested pet parents are invited to contact Godfrey’s Dogdom to be added to the waiting list for an upcoming session.

Turgeon recently moved back to Pennsylvania after a 15-year stint in New York City. For the past 20 years, she worked as a circus artist, both performing and teaching, around the globe. Her love of dogs and tricks finally came together in a professional way a couple years ago when she began apprenticing and working for a top trainer in Manhattan. Turgeon recently completed her certification as a Trick Dog Instructor through Kyra Sundance’s “Do More With Your Dog” program. Together, Turgeon and P. Gracie, her adopted pit bull, love to practice tricks and bring joy to as many people as possible. P. Gracie’s goofy personality, love of training and rescue story of resilience has garnered more than 100,000 followers on Instagram @iheartpgracie.

“It’s important to keep your dog’s mind exercised as well as the body, giving him or her new and different things to do with you,” says Pat Emmett, certified professional dog trainer and Godfrey’s training manager.

Cost: $240 for six, one-hour classes. Location: 4267 New Holland Rd., Mohnton. To register, call Godfrey’s Dogdom at 610-777-5755. For more information about the class and what will be included, email Tanya Turgeon at [email protected].
