I brought in my maltipoo foster dog (who desperately needed a good grooming) to Woof Gang and they did a fantastic job! He went from looking like an elderly street dog to a vibrant, royal pup. He seems happier too without all that extra fur. I can’t say enough good things about Wood Gang.

They did such a wonderful for my 2 Shih Tzu's, they came out wonderfully. I was so shocked and impressed at how well my babies turned out. We were away for a few months and my mom just could not keep up with their coats so they were in real need of some tlc. I highly recommend you give this place a chance, less expensive but great work! Thank you guys so much! 🥰

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!

Love taking my Baby boy Melo here. (1 yr old CavaPoo) He loves it, as soon as we pull in the plaza he knows. The moment we get out the car he starts running to the door. Total opposite when I took him to other groomers :( He gets pampered and he loves and always comes out looking so cute 🥰

What an amazing place! Brought in two large Newfoundlands for grooming and the staff was outstanding, caring, attentive to what the dogs needed and did a superb job. Customer service here is definitely 5 stars. The dogs looked so happy and relaxed when I picked them up. You could tell they were very well taken care of. Give my highest recommendation to anyone in need of grooming for their fur baby.

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 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!

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.

The pet care business is booming and grooming services are needed now more than ever! More pets have been adopted during this pandemic since people are working from home. If you love animals and want a very rewarding career working with them, register now!!

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!
