Meet Josh & Snow
Josh and Snow became an Internet / TV sensation in 2020, after competing for "The Pack" -- a dog travel competition series, hosted by Lindsey Vonn on Amazon Prime Video. Snow, Josh's beloved Poodle, came into his life in a rather unexpected fashion. He had always dreamed about owning a Standard Poodle but never quite had the chance to adopt one. One cold winter night, Josh and his partner Mehdi received a call from a friend, who happened to be a Poodle breeder in San Diego. She mentioned that one of her 10-month-old puppies was too petite to be shown in Kennel pageants and was anxiously awaiting adoption. That same night, Mehdi and Josh drove to San Diego. When they saw Snow: It was love at first sight. They took her home and Snow quickly became part of the family.
Her beauty and vibrant personality started getting noticed the very next day as she made her neighborhood debut. While out for a stroll, Tony Kelly, Plastik Magazine owner, noticed Snow and asked if he could photograph her for his magazine. Snow was a natural in front of the camera. Josh and Snow built a very strong bond over time that started to attract TV News, Hollywood Producers, and Photographers from around the world. You can follow their adventures on Instagram. Many clients drawn to Dogue are celebrities, creatives, and influential personalities from the Fashion, Film/TV, and Music industries.
Meet The Artists
Jaye’s love for dogs started early on when her Dad would bring home stray dogs all the time, which was a huge inspiration in choosing to become a veterinarian -- to help as many animals as she could, just like her father. After two years at Cal Poly pre-veterinary school, she decided to switch her major to fine art while figuring which direction she wanted to go from here. Art school brought out Jaye’s love for sculpture and color, but upon graduating she had absolutely no idea how she could combine both of her loves into a career. In 2012 she saw an ad on Craigslist calling any dog lover to apply -- she answered the ad that would change her life forever.
Her first job working professionally with dogs was at a mom and pop shop -- from there she went on to learn and grow at other salons along the way until ultimately landing with our pack at Dogue. Jaye has since been perfecting her Creative / Coloring Grooming skills.
Already as child, Leslie knew she'd end up working with dogs. She Initially wanted to be a caretaker for rehabilitated animals and started rescuing many dogs over the years that became her pets. In 2014, Leslie started working for Healthy Spot - this is around the time she and Josh started working together.
She learned the ropes first as a bather then quickly became a groomer. Over the years her craft improved as she became fond of Asian fusion. Passionate about acting and modelling, Leslie has had several of her grooming videos go viral on TikTok. Leslie specializes in Japanese Style Grooming at Dogue Spa.
Jocelyn has been working with dogs for over four years now. Her love for dogs goes way back to when she was a child. From bringing stray dogs home to being surprised by her parents with a pup. As a teen, she volunteered at a shelter to help with walking and feeding animals. She eventually found the courage to apply at a professional doggy day care, as a dog handler.
After a while, dog grooming caught her attention - she knew she had to start from the bottom, as a bather. Becoming a bather allowed Jocelyn to build confidence and gain experience. Jocelyn is currently a bather a Dogue Spa - a place she describes as: "I can literally call my second home - a place I’m comfortable enough to be myself and learn new techniques that’ll help me become a groomer one day".
Dogue Spa is always open to consider adding new artists to the team. If you are an experienced groomer and/or bather, email your resume here.
