The franchise is owned and operated by Danville, East Bay Area resident Kavita Sohal, an entrepreneur who is passionate about animals, her family and community, and always dreamed of starting a family-oriented business. When she became aware of Woofie’s, “It just felt right,” according to Sohal. Woofie’s fits in with her love of pets and the fact that the franchise is a business that serves her local community is a welcomed benefit. Together with her husband Roman, who is a CCO in the Fintech industry, and their two kids, Ram 9, the family athlete, and Jaya 7, who aspires to be a dog walker and groomer when she grows up, the family is excited to work together to grow the new venture.
“Pets bring something happy and healthy to a community – there is nothing better than having a pet. Despite any differences we may have, we all can understand the love of a pet. And because Woofie’s is a mobile business, it enables us to serve more people and their fur babies in the East Bay area with a variety of premium services,” says Sohal.
Sohal and her family also include King Louie who is 10, an Airedale Terrier, and they just welcomed a brother and sister duo of Yorkshire terrier puppies Sir Thor & Lady Bella. King Louie’s picture is placed prominently on the Walnut Creek Woofie’s mobile pet spa, which ensures a luxurious experience for pets and their people.
Woofie’s is currently hiring dog walkers, pet sitters, Bed & Biscuit sitters, groomers and bathers.
