About Us


John Comandari

Owner | Managing Partner

Born in Sicily and raised in Central America, I have lived in Colorado with my family for over 30 years.   I have always had a passion for dogs of all types, and my wife and I have three beautiful Shih Tzu’s of our own at home.  I have been an entrepreneur as long as I can remember, operating different types of businesses across several industries, but I have found my true passion in creating Woof in Boots!  This has been amazing experience, where I am proud to be surrounded by a fantastic team of play staff, groomers and trainers.  Let me know how I can help!


Vincent Palazzotto

Owner | Managing Partner

Vincent moved to the Denver area in 1998, where he has lived and worked for the past 10 years.  He is a former Army veteran and Rutgers College and University of Denver alumni.   He loves working within the downtown business community and getting to work alongside so many wonderful people and their pets!  When not working on something related to Woof in Boots or Biscuits and Brews, he can be found traveling to far off places or simply enjoying all Colorado has to offer with family, friends and his two dogs, Saatchi and Cooper.    



General Manager

I joined the Woof in Boots team in 2016, where I started off as play staff and have since worked my way up to General Manager.

My passions are playing basketball and working with dogs, so I was very glad I found Woof in Boots when I did. One thing that stood out to me when I began, and especially now, is that the staff here are not like any other staff.  We aren’t just co-workers, but a small family, and I love that! It definitely is recognized by our customers that we are different from many places due to our close connections to one another and to the pups. I genuinely look forward to coming to work every day and seeing all of our regular pups and new pets alike. There is never a day that is the same, and working here is the best!


Vi Pham

Play Staff

Hi, my name is Vi Pham!  I am a proud Colorado native, and I currently have two dogs; one a stray American Bulldog mix I found as a puppy wondering the streets, and the other a rat terrier I also found as a puppy.  I joined the Woof in Boots team in December 2012, and I absolutely love the vibe within our shop.  My goal is to create a great atmosphere for our clients’ dogs, while maintaining a safe and clean environment for them to play in.   I love animals of all types, and I am happy to call the Woof in Boots family home.  Let me know how I can be of service to you and your faithful companion!

I love coming into work and seeing new furry faces as well as ones I know. All the dogs I’ve met have a unique personality, and it’s a joy getting to know each and every one of them!




Stephany Gant

Play Staff

Stephany is one of several play-staff members, and she just loves getting to play with pets on a daily basis.  She is a great asset to the Woof in Boots team, and she is both knowledgeable and intuitive when it comes to ensuring our pets are safe and sound when playing.  Have her show you around the shop and the play areas the next time you and your pets stop in for a visit.

Cheyenne is a Colorado native, and he has been with the Woof in Boots team since day one!  His energetic spirit and calm demeanor around the dogs and kitties ensures they are in the best of hands when being picked-up or dropped-off around Denver-metro area.  When not transporting our furry friends, he can often be found working any number of our special events, from Paw Prints and Cocktails to the Furry Scurry held annually here in Washington Park.

Tevin was born and raised, right here in Colorado!  His warm spirit and love for pets are a perfect fit for the Woof in Boots team, where he works playing with our four legged friends during the day and assisting our grooming staff during his time here.  Be sure to say hello the next time you stop in, and ask him to tell you all about a few of  his favorite pups at home and around the shop.
