Ann Wolfe Combee

Ann Wolfe Combee

Owner & Groomer

Little Wolfe's Pet Resort opened the door thirty-three years ago on October 1, 1986. Ann E. Wolfe received her bachelor's degree in Interior Design from the University of Alabama in 1980, after working in the field for 6 years, she decided to change professions. She wanted something to do with pets so she could keep her Labrador Retriever puppy with her all day — hating the idea of leaving her home alone.

Based on the advice of a trusted friend, she attended a strenuous program at New York School of Dog Grooming in New York City to learn what she needed to handle in order to be a successful groomer.

Once completing the program, she returned to the place where she was born and raised: Winter Haven. Starting the business was rocky, it took her 2 and a half years of persistent flyer dropping to get to a place where she needed to really expand. The risk presented itself: she would have to buckle down and build the facility she knew she needed for her business.

Believing in herself paid off, she had two employees to take care of and the trust of an entire town to earn, but she earned it. Within a year she had trained the two employees to handle each other's workloads, doubling their productivity, and found a need to hire a third employee. She now employees fifteen wonderful people and built the current location in 1986.

The expansion continues; in just the last five years, she's added Camp Little Wolfe's Doggy Daycare. She's created two separate large breed play area as well as a small breed play area. She's also brought in an abundance of great people making up a solid team that's more like family than a hired staff.

Ann credits her success with the realization that the best way to build a business is to treat people the way she would want to be treated, and to always go out of her way to make people happy.

Ann is a mother of one daughter, one son, and two dogs Jerry Lee and Wilson whom all love her dearly.
