About Woofie’s® of West Orlando
Your Local Pet Care Company
Woofie’s® of West Orlando is not just another pet care company. It's a dream brought to life by Tara Sobek, a lifelong educator with a heart full of passion for pets and their families! Through this calling and Woofie's national pet care brand, she has brought her dream of providing the best in-home pet care to life.
A Journey Driven by Passion
Tara's decision to become a Woofie’s franchise owner was driven by her love for animals and a deep understanding of the anxiety pet owners experience when separated from their furry companions.
While seeing and hearing of regular requests in West Orlando for trusted dog walkers and groomers in the area, Tara envisioned a service that would meet these demands and offer comfort to the pet owners – like a friendly neighbor they can trust. And so, Woofie’s of West Orlando was born!
From Classroom to Canine Care
With 23 years in the education sector, including two decades dedicated to elementary teaching and subsequent years in instructional design, Tara has cultivated a set of skills uniquely tailored for excellence in the pet industry.
Her unwavering passion, innate empathy, deep understanding of the bond between pets and their families, leadership prowess, and dedication to exceptional customer service are the pillars supporting her vision of becoming the go-to source for pet care in West Orlando!
Meet the Sobek Family
Tara and Jeremy, married for twenty years, share a life filled with love, commitment, and a beautiful daughter, Ella, who mirrors her mother’s entrepreneurial spirit. And let's not forget the four-legged members, Duncan and Roman, who complete the family portrait.
Whether it's Pilates, Pickleball, petting every dog she encounters, traveling, or family board game nights, Tara ensures she balances work with a dash of leisure and a sprinkle of fun.
A Commitment to Community
Service runs deep in the Sobek family veins. From supporting survivors of sex trafficking with One Purse, aiding young collegiate women via Support Our Scholars, to standing by veterans through Southern Cross Service Dogs, their dedication to giving back is unwavering – and just a part of what Woofie’s® of West Orlando is looking to bring to the community.
