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

Here at Green Acres Kennel Shop we're making May Dog Bite Prevention month. Why? Because fifty percent of all children will be bitten by a dog during their childhood. That's a statistic we want to help change.

Whenever you leave your children with a babysitter or caregiver, make sure that they know how to supervise the children and the dog. Things babysitters MUST know:

NEVER leave the children and dog alone together, not for even a second.

The children and dog should not be interacting when the parents are not home.

The children should not be allowed to bother the dog when it is eating, sleeping, or chewing on something in its special place.

How to get the dog safely into their crate or other location, using food rewards, NOT force, where the dog can be separated from the children.

Basic dog body language so that they can tell if the dog is becoming stressed or anxious.
