About Laura and Watson
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 and am so honoured to have a fabulous team at Watson's to help care for your dog.  Our team includes a dedicated Groomer and Pack Leaders that bring over 20 years of experience in grooming, nutrition, training, dog behaviour and of course playing and snuggling!  

Since a young age, I always knew I wanted to one day own my own dog related business. Sixteen years ago, I came up with the concept of a dog daycare business and developed it through my university studies while studying Business Administration.  During that time I had the opportunity to work for an amazing company that instilled the importance of exceptional customer service into their business and their employees.  After graduating with degrees in Business Administration and Political Science, I put my dreams of owning my own business on hold in order to go and work in the corporate world to get a better understanding of how large, small, private and public companies operate.  When my husband and I returned to Kelowna to start a family, we rescued Watson when I was seven months pregnant.  When Watson joined our family I knew it was the right time and the right place to finally take the leap and pursue my dream!

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

Watson is loving 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 and for a tour and see how our facility is like no other in Kelowna!
