Update: our boy has been going her for over a year every 5 weeks. The salon continues you give him a great experience. They do well putting him at ease and giving him good care. I like that they take $5 off my next appointment when we book well in advance.1st time at the Academy, but not the first time our boy, a standard poodle, was groomed by a student. He gets a close cut with a number 5 guard and is prone to sensitive skin and hot spots. After 5 years of grooming, this was his best result and he did not itch or chew on himself afterwards. I will be going back.

This place is great! I inherited 2 badly matted maltipoos. They were a mess. I found Woof Gang Academy on google and I am glad I did. They did a bit of maneuvering around my schedule. the service was awesome!!! My pups were clean and happy when I arrived for pick up- I think they wanted to stay longer! I would give 10 stars if it were possible!! Thank you to the team at Woof Gang Academy of Grooming!

We brought our 2 golden doodle retrievers to this school for grooming by their students. The instructors and students were all caring and professional. They did a fantastic job at a great price. They were better than some of the previous groomers we've tried. We will be going back . Try them. These students are learning onhands by qualified teachers who make sure your pets are safe and attractive after their visit to this quality grooming school.

In May of 2022 I decided to completely change my career. After 18 years as a truck driver I chose to sell my truck and go to school to become a groomer! There wasn't an overabundance of options for grooming schools in the area and location was the major deciding factor in my choice to attend Woofgang Academy. I came to the school, met Woody (the owner), toured the school and got the registration packet. Initially I decided to take the 300 hour course but as I neared the end of my course time I decided to extend to the 600 hours. Our instructors Marla and Veronica bring many years of diverse experience to the classroom and they are both very creative and offer a veritable plethora of options to give us students the best education possible before we're off on our own in the real world. We're never on our own. They'll always be there for us helping whenever we need!

Our golden doodle has been going here for quite a while now. She bounces right in when we arrive and seems very happy to see her "friends". They always ask how we liked what was done at the last visit and if there is anything different we want at this grooming. We keep her cost shorter in the summer and longer in the cooler months. Everyone there is very caring for the pets. We are very very happy with the services here!

My dog Elmo has tremendous stress while being groomed and will sometimes bite- groomers in my area will no longer accept him to return. He was left with long nails, and an incomplete groom . At woof gang he looked beautiful where a calm groomer took her time and I couldn't be happier. Very impressed !

BOOK IT! We have two goldendoodles who are NOT a fan of the groomer. We have tried so many places and they both come home just not themselves. We took them both here for the first time a few months ago, and it was PHENOMENAL! Booking the appointment was super easy. The girls met us at the door when we arrived for our appointment, asked us TONS of questions about what we wanted/needed. They were so attentive to us AND the doggos. I have never seen our girls happier than the moment we picked them up -- you could tell that they had been VERY well taken care of, and I know the groomers took their time and let the dogs be dogs. I'm SO thankful for this team for finally giving us a place to call home. We just booked our 2nd appointment and can't wait to see y'all again! Thank you SO much for taking care of our doggos.

BEST GROOMERS EVER! We’ve brought our mini golden doodle here twice now and both times we’ve been blown away. After both appointments, multiple people have commented on his cut stating he has “the best doodle cut” they’ve seen, and it’s definitely the best grooming he’s ever had. In addition to their grooming, their service and care for our pup is also exceptional. From the moment you walk in, you know that you’re going to be leaving your pet in the best care. All of the staff and students have been so warm and personable. They take time to ask questions upon your arrival to ensure all of your pets needs will be met. Franklin has been so calm and content when I come to pick him up, and of course as handsome as ever! We now have a second puppy and cannot wait to bring him in for his first puppy cut! Thank you so much for being so thorough and caring with our fur baby. We’re so thankful we discovered WoofGang Academy of Grooming!

This was the second time i have used Woof Gang Academy. It is conveniently located on Rt 50 across from West Oaks Mall. They are very reasonably priced and it is fairly easy to get an appointment. The first time we had an incident with a split nail-my dog chews his nails so it could have been something he did prior but they took full responsibility, did not charge me and offered to pay the vet bill if there was one. Fortunately he didn't need it and healed quickly. This time he voiced his opinion about having his nails done so they were able to cut but not file them. He is a fairly large dog with lots of hair but they finished in less than 2 hours and he looks so handsome. I will use them again and often.

I brought my 12 year old Yorkie to Woof Gang Academy of Grooming based on a recommendation from a friend. My Yorkie had 2 massive seizures during his last grooming appointment and I was so reluctant to put him through the stress of another session. My friend assured me that Manessa had the experience of working with senior dogs and that she would make the grooming session as stress-free as possible.When we arrived, right away I noticed how clean and calm the facility was. There were several dogs there and you could hear the hum of the dryer but it wasn’t anything that frightened my dog. Manessa was so patient as she listened to me and cuddled with my dog to make him feel comfortable. She allowed me to stay close by to watch her work and give my dog some reassurance. We made it through his grooming session, complete with shampoo and blow dry, without a seizure and he looks better than ever! Thank you to the staff at Woof Gang Academy of Grooming for making this a positive experience and showing such compassion to my beloved pet.

We had a wonderful experience having our small Yorkie groomed here. Staff was friendly and cared for the dog. His cut was perfect and he also had his nails trimmed. I recommend this groomer and will go to them again!

We have two female Spinoni Italiano. They must be hand stripped to maintain the proper harsh coat. Over the years I have tried so many groomers. Some try to hand strip and do okay, but it’s rare to find someone who can hand strip my girls correctly. Manessa and her team did a PERFECT job on her first try. She is by far the best groomer I have ever used. I would 1000% recommend and encourage anyone looking for a true grooming expert to visit Manessa at Woof gang academy of grooming.

I brought our shih tzu Waffles here today for grooming along with our two foster dogs- a Senior Poodle who is getting ready for surgery next week and a paralyzed Cocker pup. Manessa did a great job with all three of them and they look so cute! I can tell they had a relaxing and enjoyable time! My sweet and happy pups!

A truly professional grooming experience. We bring our shih tzu here and she is treated with the utmost care. She looks beautiful when we pick her up. We drive 50 miles to get here and it is well worth the drive.

I traveled from the Villages an hour away so Manissa could work her magic on Clancy my Springer. I brought his 70 lb Boxer Sammy along since he also enjoys getting buffed and puffed. I highly recommend Manissa and Woof Gang Academy.

Woof Gang Academy and Grooming has sooo much to offer; world class seminars, state of the art facility and training and an award winning Certified Grooming Director who I’ve had the pleasure and honor of receiving instruction from. I learned morefrom Manessa than I had in my previous 13 years of grooming. This school offers a full grooming curriculum plus drop in classes for anything from continued education to perfect or brush up on techniques to getting ready for serious competition.Woof Gang Academy is the right choice to start a successful grooming career. I only wish it would have been available to me 14 years ago!

Pet Grooming School FAQ

There are two ways you can become a dog groomer in Florida:
  1. Complete an official dog grooming program with a comprehensive curriculum to show your dedication and knowledge. This is the recommended option!
  2. Get on the job training from an experienced dog groomer, but those without a certification will have a harder time finding a job.
Our Pro Grooming course takes 4 months to complete attending full-time. Our Stylist Program takes 8 months to complete attending full-time.
Dog grooming courses for tuition range from $7,658.93 for the Pro Groomer Program to $11,618.93 for the Pet Stylist Program; the program cost includes a grooming tool kit, registration fee, and applicable state taxes.

All students must be at least 18 years of age, and show proof of high school graduation or GED. Prior to enrollment the school requires an interview at the school campus with the director, tour of the facilities, and observing a class in operation.
