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 to Listen] Here are some tips you can use to keep your pets safe and happy on Halloween.

Secure your pet in a part of your home where they will be behind a closed door and away from the commotion of a party or the trick-or-treaters coming to your door.

If having people over for Halloween, make sure everyone at the party knows that they are to respect your pets and just "let them be."

If your dog is reactive to your door bell either disconnect it or be waiting at the door so the trick-or-treaters do not need to ring the bell or knock on your door.

Candy is prevalent at Halloween and certain types of candy can be toxic, even deadly, if consumed by our pets. Make sure to keep all candy out of reach of your pets.

If you're taking your children trick-or-treating I'd strongly encourage you to leave your dog at home. They'll be far happier.
