Living and working in New York, I spend a lot of time with headphones on. Whether it be blocking out the groaning of other commuters on the subway or zoning out on a project at work. I’ve just recently starting switching over from music to podcasts and realized there are a TON of interesting and exciting shows specifically about dogs. Check out some of the best dogtastic podcasts below:
1. Can I Pet Your Dog?
A personal favorite of mine, this podcast never fails to make me laugh on my commute or at my desk at work. Every Tuesday, dog owner Allegra Ringo, dog-wanter Renee Colvert, and their producer Travis McElroy chat about dogs in the news and, most importantly, about dogs they’ve met (or pet!) in the past week. Every episode they have a special guest come on their show and they also have a segment called Mutt Minute where they spend a minute telling you everything there is to know about a certain breed. What is there NOT to love?!
2. Dr. Dunbar’s iWoof Podcasts
This podcast is perfect for teaching you all you need to know about dogs. There are five whole seasons of episodes and they cover everything from dogs who eat poop to viral dog videos.
3. Creative Dog Training

4. Canine Nation
This podcast goes a little deeper into the behavioral science in dogs. Posted monthly, the host Eric Brad has covered topics like Mark and Reward training and traveling with your dog. This is a great opportunity to hear exactly how your pup works, while also hearing personal stories about the host’s dog.
