Dog Getting Groomed

Our Story

The Paw Spa was established by Jennifer in 2014. Angela (the current owner) was an unlicensed veterinary technician at the South Valley Veterinary Hospital in Osoyoos during the same time period. Angela and Jennifer met on Angela's fourth day of employment with the South Valley Vet.

 

On top of being the owner of a grooming salon, Jennifer also bred Pomeranian dogs. One morning Jennifer's dog was struggling to birth her puppies. Jennifer knew she needed to act fast to ensure the safety of both the babies and mom; she rushed her pregnant dog to the vet for an emergency c-section. At this point Angela was extremely gentle with the small fragile pups - maybe even too gentle. Jennifer blurted out "You can't hurt a dead puppy" and that was the moment Angela became more comfortable around new born puppies. Jennifer left the clinic with a fully live litter that day. Angela always remembered that experience in every future c-section she's done, giving her heart to the beautiful animals that she works with.

Once Jennifer had decided she was going to sell the Paw Spa, she knew there was no one more capable to fill her shoes than Angela. She worked alongside Jennifer for several months learning the grooming side of animal care. She took ownership of the Paw Spa as of July 1st, 2021. In November 2021, she was nominated for 'The Best of the South Okanagan' award. We cannot wait to see the incredible things Angela does with this business!
