Woof Gang Bakery, a leader in specialty pet retail and grooming with 130 locations across the U.S., will celebrate the opening of the company’s first Alabama store with a grand opening event from Feb. 29 through March 14.
The new Woof Gang Bakery location is a locally-owned franchise, offering professional pet grooming and a wide selection of healthy pet foods, gourmet baked treats, toys, accessories and pet supplies. The store is located at 104 Apple Avenue, Dothan, Alabama.
The grand opening celebration will take place from Feb. 29 through March 14.

Customers will also receive a spa upgrade on all pet grooming appointments booked during the grand opening period.
Local residents Chad and Jennifer Carico are the franchise owners of the new Woof Gang Bakery store. They are eager to provide customers and their pets with wholesome pet foods, quality products and full-service pet grooming in a welcoming, neighborhood setting.
With extensive experience in the pet and retail sectors, the Caricos bring expertise and commitment to the well-being of their furry clientele. Jennifer is a professional pet groomer and a former veterinary technician. It’s all in the family as Jennifer’s grandmother was a pet groomer and her mother, Karen Shirah, is a groomer at the new Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming Dothan location. Both Chad and Jennifer consider personalized customer service a top priority.
“We love our customers! We appreciate their loyalty and trust in us to help them do what’s best for their pets,” said Jennifer. “We are eager to teach them how good nutrition equates to healthy, happy pets. Plus, we’re excited to introduce our customers to new pet products and treats, some of which will be baked fresh right here in our store.”
The Caricos share a customer-focused business approach and enjoy meeting neighbors and their pets. The couple is committed to being a positive force in the local animal rescue community. Their own furry and feathered family includes a Doberman Pinscher named Max, a poodle named Boomer, cats, horses and chickens.
