Anyone in the Okanagan, British Columbia?

I'm moving from Vancouver to the Okanagan Region of British Columbia this coming weekend. Temporarily staying in Kamloops while searching for a house/property to settle down in, but may end up anywhere from Kamloops, to Vernon, to Kelowna.

If any forum members are from the area, I'd love to get some leads for:

- quality, raw dog food
- good veterinarians
- responsible and reliable dog sitters/boarders, who have significant experience with large breeds and actually care about the well being of the dogs they board
- dog-friendly parks, (not "dog parks," per se) trails, areas, patios, etc.
- groomers

TIA!

We lived in Armstrong (just north of Vernon) for several years, prior to moving to our island off of Newfoundland's north coast. The Okanagan is indeed a beautiful part of BC, but we grew so tired of choking on forest fire smoke every summer. We moved to NL in 2007, and wow, it sure was nice to breath clean fresh air again! We had a great vet right in Armstrong, but I cannot remember his name. (but I think there is just the one vet clinic there)

The Healthy Spot in Vernon and Salmon Arm has best selection of raw food. There is a group on Facebook called Dog Friendly BC that has lists of dog friendly spots all around BC. I will send you a message.
