We're pet people. We love our dogs and we're always looking for tips and products for caring for and pampering our fur families, plus events and destinations that not only tolerate our best friends, but welcome them
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 12, 2008
For Bay Area dog lovers tired of wading through a variety of websites, magazines and emails to find the best products, dog-friendly spots, events, and more, the frustration is over - Woof Report has arrived. A free, daily email newsletter and interactive online community, Woof Report delivers a litter of pup-perfect tips, products, and services to care for and pamper our four-legged friends.
According to the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association, more than 44 percent of households own a dog. In the past decade, the niche has exploded, with an estimated $43 billion to be spent on pets in 2008 -- everything from collars and fashion couture to travel and health care. With so many products and services on the market, many owners are overwhelmed by the choices. Woof Report was created to be the top dog on all things canine-friendly in the Bay Area and beyond. Its pack of editors personally handpick all of the items they recommend. By sniffing out the top dog blogs, websites, newsletters, magazines and pet stores, Woof Report aims to save its readers time by providing them with pooch-pleasing practical and relevant information.
"We're pet people. We love our dogs and we're always looking for tips and products for caring for and pampering our fur families, plus events and destinations that not only tolerate our best friends, but welcome them," said Stacey Sachs, founder and pack leader of Woof Report. "Dog magazines aren't published frequently enough, traditional email newsletters always seem to be selling us something, and there are simply too many websites and blogs to scour for the dog-related information we're seeking."
Beyond simply offering tips and advice, woofreport.com is an interactive community where readers upload photos of their pets, share information and seek advice. Sachs and the pack are also passionately committed to promoting awareness of animal welfare causes, pet adoption initiatives and charities.
Daily emails feature a tip from one of the categories below and all information is then added to the Tip Archives on the website for easy access.
- Tails of the City - Dog-friendly venues, from restaurants to local events and hiking spots
- Dog People's Choice - The best in dog-themed gifts

Each daily email features a "Best in Show" dog chosen from reader submissions, and the website spotlights a new "Top Dog of the Week" every Monday. The site also features a Woof Report Friends page with dog photos submitted by readers. Woof Report recently launched a blog and plans to roll out a widget, an iPhone application and a Facebook application in the near future.
Launched in the San Francisco Bay Area, the company plans to expand to other major cities soon and offer a national version by the end of 2008. In the meantime, dog owners outside of the Bay Area can currently find great tips for caring for their dogs - plus, products and services accessible online and inspiration to seek out dog-friendly events, services and more in their own cities.
