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 for Audio] I firmly believe that good nutrition is the foundation to good health. Carefully evaluating what we feed our pets is essential to their having a long and healthy life.

Being in the business for 19 years, we know that not all pet foods are equal. From the day our Golden Retriever Tikken entered our home we were very particular about what we fed her.

By carefully reviewing ingredient labels, reading and researching pet foods and pet food companies, we always fed Tikken the best food that we were able to afford. As a result we had a happy healthy Golden Retriever for sixteen wonderful years.

The ingredients that go into a bag or can of pet food really do make a difference. Both cats and dogs are carnivores and the first ingredient of any pet food should be a clearly identified meat source such as chicken, turkey, beef, duck, or even bison or venison.
