About Us...


Hi my name is Julie Oss - Owner, Operator of Ruff Spot Dog Day Care and Spa.

I was born and raised in Fort McMurray and lived in Edmonton for my teenage years. I grew up around dogs my whole life and started grooming and showing dogs at the age of 12.  My first job was at Sivam's Poodle Boutique, where I learned how to be a professional groomer. When I was 19 I started working at Whitemud Grooming Salon where I learned to groom cats. At 21 I decided to move back to Fort McMurray to open my own grooming shop, Whiskas & Tails Pet Salon. I successfully owned and operated Whiskas & Tails for 4 years. 

I am a mother of three beautiful children (and 2 dogs) and reside in Sherwood Park. All my children are now in school full time which gives me the opportunity to do what I love again.... Pet Care!

I've spent my entire career in the dog care and grooming business.  I look forward to meeting you and giving you a tour of our beautiful facility. ~


My name is Tammy.  I am a wife and mom/step-mom of 2 beautiful girls named Haley and Jordan who are my pride and joy.  We have 2 dogs, 2 cats, a ball python and a pond full of beautiful koi fish in our family.

I  have an immense love and respect for animals which was instilled in me from the time I was born.  My Gramps (who was my idol) was a veterinarian and I spent as much time as I could with him growing up.  I loved to help him with all the critters that came in to see him.  It was always the place I loved to be.

I am very proud to be working at Ruff Spot.  I take my job of looking after other people's furry friends very seriously.  I treat these dogs as if they were my own and very quickly develop a real bond with all of them.  I find it a very fun and rewarding career and tell everyone I meet that I have the best job in the world! ~



Hey my name is Dayna and I work at Ruff Spot Dog Daycare and Spa for over a year. I grew up on a farm and have always been around animals. I have 3 dogs, 2 sugar gliders and one cat. I have rescued animals that were in need and I have learned so much about myself; I have a heart for animals. I am spunky and fun which makes for an eventful day at Ruff spot. I enjoy singing, dancing, playing fetch and cuddling with the fur babies. I promise that your fur babies will be loved and cared for while they stay at Ruff Spot Dog Daycare and Spa.~
