Our Story

Every business has a beginning, and this is where you talk about yours. People want to know what opportunity you saw or how your passion led to the creation of something new. Talk about your roots–people wanna know you have some.

Meet the team

Sue Oldridge

Founder & CEO


Sue has had a love for dogs her whole life and has owned various breeds over the years.  She recently acquired a German Shepherd puppy after the loss of her long time canine companion Sisqo, to cancer.  Sue purchased Luxe Dog in 2008 and spent every weekend at the shop assisting with bathing, nail trimming, ear cleaning  and basic grooming care. She learned a lot about dog behaviour and body language.  A desire to continue to expand her knowledge of dogs and her ability to train them, led to enrolment at one of only 3 PCTIA registered Canine Trainer schools in BC.  She will be graduating as a Certified Canine Trainer at the end of September 2012 at which time puppy and young dog basic obedience classes will be offered.
