Michael Snedden

Your dogs know him as "Best Friend Mike"

Michael started working at Nirvana when searching for his next career path. He knew it included dogs and found his way home to Nirvana. His passion for dogs in infectious which is why he was chosen as the successor of Nirvana Pet Resort.  

When he's not in the shop you will find Mike spending time with his wife and their dogs, enjoying a concert, or exploring the hidden camping gems BC has to offer.


In-house Groomer Extraordinaire

Shannon is the owner and operator of Paws 4 Grooming, Nirvana's in-house grooming studio.
You can definitely trust your pet's next "fur-do" in her capable hands.  She enjoys spending time with each animal during their grooming session and looks forward to their return.



Groomer Extraordinaire 

My passion from a young age has been spending time with dogs and other animals; I adore nothing more!  I love working with dogs (and cats), and still can't believe that this is my job. Working with dogs is always an adventure, and I find that I'm constantly learning something new every day from our furry friends. 

I couldn't be happier to be part of the Nirvana Pet Resort team!
