About Laura

Hi there, my name is Laura Vigar and I am the Founder and Owner of Watson's Hound Lounge Corp. My passion has always been dogs; whether it is rescuing a Weimaraner in need, helping re-home dogs in need, or volunteering with rescue organizations and the dog pound, it is my personal mission to help make a difference in the lives of dogs.  It has been amazing to see my dream of providing a unique first class dog facility here in Kelowna come alive.  I am so honoured to have a fabulous team at Watson's to help care for your dog.  Our team brings years of experience in, nutrition, dog behaviour, grooming and of course playing and snuggling!  

Since we opened our doors on November 25, 2013 we have been honoured to welcome so many wonderful new friends.


Watson is an Eight year old Weimeraner.  Through, Vancouver based, Dogwood Rescue,  Watson was adopted into the Vigar family in 2012 from Salt Lake City.  Watson loves coming to “work” and meeting and playing with new and returning friends!

As working professionals, we understand that people are working harder longer days and it is increasingly difficult for owners to spend time with their dog during the day and before or after work; this can result in a very unhappy and destructive dog for the owner to come home to.  So if you are looking for a place for your pup to go while you are at work or play, come down for a tour and see how our facility is like no other in Kelowna!
