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

Not all pets need to be groomed by a professional, but all pets, no matter the length of their coat, should be groomed at least once a week. A weekly grooming should include checking your pet's nails and trimming them as necessary as well as brushing and thoroughly examining their coat and skin. The more frequently you brush your pet, the less likely they will be to develop matts. A matt can be difficult for you to remove and can cause a great deal of discomfort to your pet.

Long haired pets like Persian cats, Shelties, Poodles and many other breeds should be brushed at least two to three times per week. These are the breeds that will also benefit from having their hair trimmed on a regular basis. A visit to a groomer every four to six weeks can aid greatly in this process.

Bathing your dog, every four to six weeks, with a shampoo made for dogs, will keep Fido smelling nice and will help keep his skin and coat healthy.
