Pet Goats in the City

Episode 13

For the Love of Goats

Pet Goats in the City



If you live in the city and wonder if goats would make a good pet, then listen to this episode. I’m talking to Matt Roben who has two pet goats in the city of Chicago. We’re talking about

  • choosing does (female goats) or wethers (castrated males)
  • dealing with noise and being a good neighbor
  • legalities of having goats in the city
  • dealing with poop
  • buying and storing hay
  • challenges of finding a goat vet
  • and more!

To see Matt’s goats, you can visit them on Instagram.
