About Us

Owned and operated by husband and wife team Scott & Angela Gilbert Thoughtful Paws Grooming opened its doors in January 2001.
We have been working professionally with dogs for over 25 years.  In addition to our professional experience, we are passionate about training, having competed in a variety of dog sports with our own dogs. Angela is a long standing member of Forbidden Plateau Obedience & Tracking Club, and regularly teaches Obedience classes as a volunteer for the Club. She is also a Canine Good Neighbour Evaluator with the Canadian Kennel Club.  Our interest in training and behavior is definitely a benefit in our work with dogs, particularly in helping dogs to overcome anxiety about grooming.
We lost our dog "Chianti" to heart disease in 2019. Chianti, an American Staffordshire Terrier had performance Titles in Obedience,Tracking, Rally O, Canine Dressage, and DockDogs as well as her Canine Good Neighbour. You canread about Chianti's adventures here. We will someday get another dog, who will have large shoes to fill.
