The Woof Meow Show


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 donh@greenacreskennel.com.

In 2015 the American Animal Hospital Association published their Canine and Feline Behavior Management Guidelines, reporting that "More dogs and cats are affected by behavioral problems than any other condition."

Behavioral problems can be frustrating for you and your pet. Please do not delay in discussing them with your veterinarian. There is no evidence to suggest that pets will outgrow these problems.

The guidelines also recommend 'It is essential that clients ask trainers about specific tools and techniques used. If the tools or techniques include prong collars, shock
Collars, or leash/collar jerks/yanks, or if the trainer explains behavior in terms of ''dominance'' or throws anything at a dog, advise clients to switch trainers."

By addressing your pet's behavior problems in a prompt and kind manner, you can help make sure you and your pet remain best friends for life.
