Plus, customers will receive a free bag of Woof Gang Bakery dog treats with every appointment booked during the grand opening period for future grooming services.
Boulder residents Flavia Rizzi Rodrigues and Elton Santi are the franchise owners of the new Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming store. They are passionate about providing customers and their pets with wholesome pet foods, quality products and full-service pet grooming in a welcoming, neighborhood setting.
“I’m an animal lover and pet-friendly Boulder was a natural choice for our business. In Boulder, we embrace the outdoors and care for our pets’ quality of life,” said Flavia Rodrigues. “We offer quality products and professional grooming and prioritize the well-being, health and happiness of our furry clientele. We are especially excited to introduce our treat table stocked with tasty goodies, a farmhouse selection of natural chews and bones, and a selection of locally-made products – all guaranteed to make tails wag!”
Flavia brings care and commitment to her woman-owned small business. She knows her customers and their pets by name and provides an experience tailor-made to each client’s individual needs. She is dedicated to being a positive force in the local community, including supporting area rescues and hosting pet adoption events. The couples’ own furry family includes two Shetland Sheepdogs named John Lennon and Jack Bauer.
