Alena LaSoya always knew she wanted to work with dogs, but wasn’t sure in what capacity.
She found an answer two years ago, shortly after moving to Odessa from Houston, when she decided to open her own mobile dog grooming business.
Since then, her business, called “Woofers Mobile Dog Grooming” has since taken off as her list of clients has continued to grow.
“Back in 2014, I was a dog trainer, but I wasn’t sure what field I wanted to be in,” LaSoya said. “I knew I wanted something to do with animals. So then I started moving towards grooming. I worked in a salon and then found that I liked the one-on-one time with the animals. It just makes it so much easier for them. It’s so much more calm for the animals and peaceful.”
Not many people may know that mobile dog grooming businesses exist, let alone in Odessa but it’s a concept that LaSoya says appears to be catching on.
