Doggone good

Woofer's whips up wholesome treats for dogs


This year, Judy will be setting up during Atlanta Days for the first time, as well as at various church bazaars, craft shows and other events. Woofer’s doggie treats are also available at Zinszer’s, and through a shop in Shipshewana.

Dobie often attends the events where Judy sells her cookies. “People like him. They think he’s cute, and he can schmooze with the other dogs.” She also noted, “Dobie is VP of quality control.”

That’s evident on a recent morning when Judy’s got her apron on in the kitchen making up a batch of Peanut Mutters.

“With the cross-hatching just like grandma used to do,” said Judy. Dobie happily snatches up a treat, and hides under a chair with it.

“He’s definitely a very spoiled dog who eats these things daily,” said Phil.

Mutt-n-honey is another one of Judy’s very popular cookies. It includes peanut butter, applesauce, oats and honey.

“I even make “muttins.” She said they’re like little muffins for dogs.

Husband Phil is an integral part of the Woofer’s operation, helping out especially on the marketing end of things. Not only does Judy call him VP of marketing, she said Phil pitches in to help out in the kitchen from time to time.

“At first, he thought I was nuts,” said Judy. Once things got rolling, however, Phil totally supported Judy in her undertaking. “He became a true believer.”

Woofer’s gives Judy an opportunity to do something she loves.

“I may be tired at the end of the day, but I really enjoy it,” said Judy. “I just always liked to bake. My mom used to bake apple pies every summer because we had apple trees.”

She even earned the nickname “Judy Pie” from the fire station to which she used to bring fruit pies.
