Woof in Boots

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!



Play Staff

I have been working here at woof in boots for over a year now, and I really enjoy it.  Everyone here at Woof in Boots calls me the “the dog whisperer.” This nickname has stuck because all the dogs instantly cling and follow me just about everywhere around the shop.  I love that I can care for and treat all the dogs at Woof in Boots as if they were my own.  


Play Staff

I have been working at Woof in Boots since 2016. I love working with dogs, and I love my co workers, because they have helped me make a positive change in my life. They influence me daily to have a great work ethic, and I’ve been told that I’m very courageous for working with a variety of different pet breeds.  I love it here!
