I met Wendie Patrick in a Facebook group for pet businesses where she was looking for retailers to sell her products. I liked the sound of what she had to offer, and had our head office take a peek at her products. Long story short – the products were approved and are now available in both our Legacy and Copperfield Tail Blazers locations!

Wendie was one of the first sponsors to step up to sponsor the Yamnuska 2022 calendar. I must admit – I get all the feels when businesses work together like that!!


About Finnessiam Health and Dogs of Pride

Dogs of Pride was founded in 2010 by Wendie Patrick I.C.M.G., C.C.M.S. after she relocated to Nova Scotia from Alberta. Upon her arrival, Wendie discovered a huge lack of suppliers, distributors and education about pet grooming, safe grooming products and safe grooming practice.

Wendie prides herself on keeping informed of the ever changing developments, research and science relating to safe ingredients in pet shampoo etc. in order to ensure the health and safety of both the groomers’ and the pets’ health. Further education is also a passion and Wendie is always eager to share knowledge, skills and experiences to help develop and empower pet parents and professionals alike.
