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] I love seeing people out and about, enjoying the outdoors with their dog. However, it's important to remember that we have a responsibility to pickup after our dog whenever we are off our own property.

Not everyone likes dogs and one of the main reasons why is that some dog owners don't clean up after their dogs. I hate stepping in a mess left behind by an irresponsible dog owner.

Whenever you are out and about with your dog, make sure that you are equipped with something that you can use to cleanup and contain your dog's feces until you can properly dispose of them. Whether it's a commercial made poop bag, an old grocery store bag, or something else, always be prepared. Even a handkerchief can work in an emergency.

If while you are out with your dog and find a pile some other dog owner has left behind… do the right thing and pick that one up to.
