About the Print Cover

Illustrator, designer, and dog lover Gillian Dreher created this month’s cover image based on a proud golden retriever mix she used to know. She lives in Oakland where she frequents dog parks and pines for a pooch of her own. View more of her work at Gill-D.com.

Bay Woof is a free monthly newspaper for San Francisco Bay Area dog lovers.

Our mission is to be the voice of the local dog community and an essential resource for people who love their pets—the wonderfully dense and diverse population of the San Francisco Bay Area. It is available at vet clinics, pet stores, and other dog-friendly locations near you. We’ll be sharing our love of dogs as we bring you the best of the Bay’s canine news and views, each and every month. Readers will find engaging articles by local dog people, including the best and brightest of Bay Area pet professionals. Great graphic design makes the paper a visual feast, and you’ll find wonderful photos, drawings, and cartoons in every issue. Articles cover a wide range of topics, including dog training and health, dog-friendly travel, dog sports, and all things canine.

Thanks and best wishes from the staff of Bay Woof!
