For over a decade, Penticton Pet Resort has been trusted as the premier pet resort of the South Okanagan. Penticton Pet Resort is a family owned business. Lindsey, the owner, is extremely passionate about animals. A lifelong dog lover and owner, Lindsey knows what pet owners expect and what their beloved pets need.
Penticton Pet Resort’s staff is knowledgeable, friendly, caring, and trustworthy. Our goal is to offer you all the conveniences and elite service you and your beloved pets need.
Lindsey was born and raised in the Penticton area. Being around animals has always been a way of life for Lindsey. Growing up she had dogs and cats at home and volunteered at local ranches in exchange for riding.
After college, Lindsey worked in the education field during the week while spending weekends walking dogs and house-sitting for people with many types of pets including everything from dogs, cats, birds, and lizards to horses and other farm animals.
In 2006, Lindsey decided to work full time in pet care and started walking dogs and boarding dogs at her home. She soon realized that she had found her true calling and opened Penticton Pet Resort in 2007, a business devoted to professional dog care.
Lindsey knows how important it is to continue to learn and to keep up with the latest advancements in pet care. Lindsey continues to take numerous courses in dog training and behaviour. She has also been certified in Pet first Aid by St. John Ambulance and by Walks and Wags.
Giving back to the community is important to Lindsey. She volunteers as a guest speaker at SPCA kids camps. She also holds classes at local dog parks for elementary schools, educating kids on how to care for and respect dogs.
Lindsey’s favourite part of every day is leading mountain hikes for her pack of regulars, with her own dog, Olive leading the way.
When it comes to animals, Lindsey has endless energy! She puts this towards her goal of providing the absolute best care for all her furry clients.
Meet Natasha, a born and raised local. She has always been an animal lover, from her childhood cats and husky, to the various lovables that followed. She now has one wildly loved mutt of her own that keeps her on her toes. She enjoys helping all our furry four legged friends wiggle-butt their way through our door everyday. Natasha is glad to have found a place she is passionate about that also provides opportunities to work hard with great reward.
We are happy to have Caroline on our team!
Bio coming soon.
Paige has grown up around dogs and has loved them from an early age. She learned to care for dogs by first volunteering at the Penticton Pet Resort, and then working for us. Paige is now studying science at UBC but works for us in the summer. Paige loves all our client pets and hopes to one day run a pet resort of her own.
Caitlin has had a love for dogs for as long as she can remember! From dog sitting and dog walking as a kid, to spending years working at a groomers and now part of our team... she always seems to find a way to be with animals and couldn’t be happier. Caitlin would have as many pets as she could handle if possible, but for now being around her doggy friends at the resort and spending time with her two pups and two cats at home will do!
Katrina is a longtime local who aspires to work in the veterinary industry caring for all kinds of critters. A self described nerd who spends lots of her free time watching tv and playing video games with her family and two black cats. She also has a love for caffeine and anything/everything sweet. Katrina is very excited and eager to learn and care for the multitude of dogs that come through our doors (and have some fun along the way!)
Payton is a full time student and works for us during the summer and on weekends and evenings during the school year. She has lots of experience with horses, dogs, and other animals. We are happy to have Payton on our team!
