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!

Very clean, and very welcoming environment. When I brought my pups in, they were scruffy. Thank you so much for making my babes comfortable and cute again!

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 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.
19:44 10 Sep 21
Was so impressed. Very happy with my two dogs grooming job. They look great and they were happy. Not left in a cage all day like pet smart. Staff was very nice!

I believe the owner was at the front desk, extremely friendly and professional.When I picked my dog up, I met the groomer. Also extremely friendly and professional.They did a great job with my dog as well. Perfect experience

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! 🥰

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 🥰
21:34 23 Jul 21
Very great customer service the best grooming services I have ever experience very affordable they did a great job with a wash and trimming my puppy I loved the look it was worth the visit . !
20:33 14 Jul 21
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.
05:31 13 Jul 21
I took my 2 year old Golden Retriever, Jax, to get groomed at the Woof Gang Academy of Grooming and it was amazing! Everyone working there is so kind and helpful! I was so impressed with how Jax looked when I picked him up. I will definitely be bringing him back!

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.
13:25 15 Jun 21
My three girls just had their grooming done here for the very first time.😁They look wonderful 😍💕🐾🐾exactly what a Bichon cut should be!Manessa, the other instructors and students did a great job!!Thank you for the opportunity to bring my girls in for a great grooming!!
20:53 08 Jun 21
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!
18:06 24 May 21
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.
13:37 17 May 21
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!
21:09 20 Apr 21
The groomer is amazing and everyone very nice. Wonderful school for grooming, new groomers and present groomers
19:28 18 Mar 21
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.

Definitely the place to go if you want to learn to be the best groomer you can be!
