Woof's Dog Bakery marks 10-year anniversary


The popular pet business recently relocated to the Northgate Center in Brookings.

Woof’s Dog Bakery, with stores in Brookings and Gold Beach, is celebrating its 10th year in business.

“Time flies when you love going to work each day,” said Buck Rosendahl who, with his wife Tracie, owns the stores. 

The couple recently relocated their store from the Brookings-Harbor Shopping Center in Harbor to 1031 Chetco Ave. in the Northgate Center. The Gold Beach store is located at 29525 Ellensburg Ave.

The new Brookings location offers more than doubled the floor space as the previous store and it is more convenient for shoppers, Rosendahl said.

To celebrate their 10th anniversary, the couple will offer a 25 percent discount on everything in both stores — except dog baths, food and flea medicine — on June 27 and 28.

During the last decade, the Rosendahls said they have given away more than $134,000 in free dog and cat food to its customers, as well as donating countless items to local animal shelters. People who adopt a dog or cat from either the South Coast Humane Society or the Curry County Animal Shelter receive a 10 percent coupon for supplies at Woof’s Dog Bakery.

 In 2006, Woof’s received “The Business of the Year” award in Gold Beach. From 2008 through 2014, the business received the “Reader’s Choice Award” by Curry Coastal Pilot readers.

“It is an honor and we appreciate the recognition,” Rosendahl said. 

“Over the past years Woof’s has been responsible for curing untold numbers of pet health problems based solely upon proper nutrition and the pet’s needs,” he said.

Rosendahl said he loves working with owners and their dogs, not only in the area of great health but in  teaching new puppy owners how to train their pets.

The Rosendahls said they are extremely proud of their staff — Calley Gertsch, Melinda Riddle and Breanna Sorbello — who “do everything possible to assure every customer and pet receives their undivided attention. They take personal pride in seeing that each pet receives only the finest in nutritional and other needs and are always available to answer your questions.”

  • Focus turns to U.S. data as China slowdown looms
    After a dizzying two weeks that saw a rapid plunge and rebound in equity prices, investors are looking forward to a week of economic data that may provide clarity on the likelihood of a near-term U.S. interest rate hike and help tamp down the market's recent wild swings. The economic figures will culminate in Friday?s jobs report that should reveal more about the strength of the U.S. economy. Car sales, construction spending, the Federal Reserve's "beige book" and jobs growth may show the economy is strong enough to withstand the first rate hike in nearly a decade from the Federal Reserve, despite worries about a hard landing for China?s economy.
  • Fed says rate hike next month hinges on market volatility
    The Federal Reserve on Friday left the door open to a September interest rate hike even while several U.S. central bank officials acknowledged that turmoil in financial markets, if prolonged, could delay the first policy tightening in nearly a decade. Some top policymakers, including Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer, said recent volatility in global markets could quickly ease and possibly pave the way for the U.S. rate hike, for which investors, governments and central banks around the world are bracing. With a key policy meeting set for Sept. 16-17, at least five Fed officials spoke publicly in what amounted to a jockeying for position on whether increasing the Fed's benchmark overnight lending rate was too risky amid an economic slowdown in China, a rising U.S. dollar (.DXY) and falling commodity prices (XAU=) (CMCU3).
  • Unions set sights on e-commerce and manufacturing firms after NLRB ruling
    On Thursday the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled the owner of a California recycling plant was a "joint employer" with the contractor that hired workers at the plant, essentially forcing both to bargain with the union together or risk violating U.S. labor law. Business groups, arguing that the ruling could lead to higher costs and hurt the economy, are pushing the Republican-led Congress to overturn it, in part it because the company named in the decision - Browning-Ferris - cannot challenge it in a federal court without overcoming a number of procedural hurdles. Unions see the decision as a breakthrough not just in efforts to help employees organizes at franchisees of McDonald's Corp (MCD.N) and other chains but also as a tool to counter the proliferation of subcontracting in other industries in which workers are one or two steps removed from the companies indirectly controlling them.
