Florida native Dr. Barry Wander is the franchise owner and head veterinarian of Woof Gang Bakery, Grooming and Vet Clinic Boca Raton. Dr. Wander attended the University of Florida where he earned his bachelor’s degree in animal science and a master’s degree in animal nutrition. In 1987, he opened Wander Animal Hospital, and has practiced veterinary medicine for 27 years with a special interest in dermatological diseases, pediatric and geriatric medicine.

Dr. Wander is dedicated to the local community and to providing unparalleled service and quality products for customers and their four-legged friends. He is eager to become a local resource for overall pet wellness, including proper nutrition, healthy lifestyle and community involvement. Being the proud parent of Schnapps, a miniature schnauzer and two cats, he has become attuned to the unique nutritional needs of pets.

“My desire to be a Woof Gang Bakery franchisee was born from the desire to meld a unique, owner and animal-friendly pet boutique with a highly respected veterinary care center together in a warm, friendly, nurturing atmosphere,” said Dr. Wander. “Together, with sound advice, good nutrition, and routine veterinary care, we can help to provide long and happy lives for our pets.”

Woof Gang Bakery is the leading retailer in raw frozen diets, kibble, canned and dehydrated dog and cat food. In addition to meeting pets’ nutritional needs, Woof Gang Bakery carries stylish essentials, fashionable accessories, a variety of toys and a wide range of doggie spa products. Head-to-tail grooming also is offered for complete pet pampering.

A remarkably high demand exists for pet products and services. According to the American Pet Products Association, approximately 82 million homes in the U.S. own a pet. Americans will spend more than $55 billion this year on pet supplies, care and grooming, including an estimated $4.5 billion in spending just on services such as grooming.
