Welcome and Thanks for Visiting!
Woof Report was created way back in 2008 as a daily email newsletter delivering handpicked dog care tips, news, products and more. Near the end of 2009, after sending hundreds of daily tips via email and gaining a loyal (and much appreciated) following, our budget was stretched to the limit. The daily emails came to an end, and the Woof Report team went their separate ways.
As the Woof Report founder, I couldn’t leave my beloved ‘pet project’ behind. I continued to find useful dog care and training tips, practical dog products, interesting dog news, and ideas for having fun with my own dog, Larry – things that I wanted to share….so in October 2010, Woof Report returned for about a year.
As of 2018, our family now includes three new dog lovers, my daughters, and a cat, and Woof Report is back! While you’ll notice some changes from the old Woof, the goal remains the same — to bring you the very best for your fur family and to improve the lives of our best friends.
And since dogs (and cats) give so much to me personally and to all of the people in their lives, I’m committed to returning the favor. That’s why Woof Report works to promote awareness of animal welfare causes, pet adoption initiatives, and charities.
I hope you enjoy Woof Report as much as I enjoy creating it for you!
Please spread the word at the dog park. Contact me to tell me what you like best, could do without, or want to see more of on the site. I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks again for visiting!
The Former Woof Report Team & Advisors
Many thanks to the former Woof Reporters, Sue, Nina, and Manolo, for working with me to create and grow Woof Report. And thank you to Woof Report advisors Adam Behrens, VMD and expert dog trainer, Michael Wombacher, who lent their expertise for earlier tips.
Woof Report Consultants
The inspiration for Woof Report came from a lifelong love of animals and my own fur family, which includes the very spoiled Larry, whose photos you’ll see throughout the site and also Ted the tabby cat, whom we sadly said goodbye to in 2015 at age 15. We welcomed George the cat to our family in November 2018 and you can see him on Instagram.
Larry was adopted from Pound Puppy Rescue in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he was one of a litter of seven Black Lab/Border Collie pups. Larry is the greatest dog (even though I know your dog is the greatest dog too!). Larry is loving, ball- and food-obsessed, and thinks he’s a lap dog, often sitting entirely on my lap blocking my view of the computer screen. Larry and I are obsessed with each other and I wouldn’t have it any other way. With Larry, I’m doing my best to teach my girls how to appreciate, love, and care for dogs and all animals. I reside just north of San Francisco with my so-called Woof Report Consultants, my husband Mike, two daughters, and George.
