Welcome to Maine’s radio show and podcast all about dogs and cats and the people that share their lives. Our goal is to inform and educate you about the needs and wants of your furry friends so that your lives together can be the best that they can be. 

Kate and I discuss the latest news from the pet world covering a wide range of topics such as; basic healthcare, how to choose a good cat or dog food, training, behavior, and management of your pet, resolving problem behavior, serious health issues, and more. Sometimes a show is just the two of us having a conversation, but we also have guests on the shows from our hometown, Bangor, ME and from all throughout the USA. Veterinarians, authors, trainers, behaviorists, filmmakers, shelter managers, and others have all shared their knowledge with us on The Woof Meow Show

Whether you listen to our podcast or to the show as it is broadcast on Saturday at 9 AM on Z62 Retro Radio AM620, WZON, and WKIT HD3, we hope you find the show enjoyable and a valuable resource and that you become a regular listener. If you have a topic you would like us to consider for the show, contact me at

[Click on image for audio] - It's time to celebrate and for many that means it's time for fireworks.

Fireworks, with their loud booms and bright flashes of light can be very frightening to pets especially if they are close by, like in your yard or your neighbor's yard.

Make sure your dog or cat always has somewhere inside to hide and that they have access to this place at all times. This could be their crate, a special room, or under a piece of furniture.

During firework season, walk dogs during daylight hours and keep cats and dogs indoors anytime when fireworks are likely to be set off.

Close your windows and curtains at night and put on music to mask and muffle the sound of fireworks.

If you use fireworks at home, keep your pet inside.

If you go someplace to see the fireworks I would advise you to leave your pet at home in a safe quiet location. They'll be glad you did.
