About Woof! Orlando:
As a well-known groomer, dog walker, and resident in College Park, Michelle Philbrick-Olds saw a huge need for an all-inclusive pet resort in the community. Inspired by her four dogs, she opened Woof! Orlando in College Park in 2008 as Orlando’s premier indoor/outdoor urban oasis for the pampered pooch.
Woof! Orlando provides overnight slumber parties, doggie play care, award-winning grooming salon, and a healthy pet market. It has everything a pup needs to be happy, healthy, and loved.
Michelle enjoys working in College Park for its amazing people. She also loves watching her children grow up alongside classmates in a community that has supported our family for so many years.
Her favorite College Park businesses include New Moon Market, Tornatore’s, The Outpost, Armandos, Infusion Tea, Yaya + Lou, Mercedes Nails, and Apenberrys.
Her advice to people starting a business: Get out in the community, build relationships with your customers, and most importantly lift each other up as business owners. We all need each other to survive as small business owners. Healthy competition is good but playing nice and being respectful will reap the rewards tenfold over the years.
