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

If you have a dog that is fearful, aggressive or reactive it is very unlikely that they will do well in a group dog training class. While private training could be a successful way of teaching them behaviors like sit, down, and heeling, it is doubtful that learning those behaviors will stop them from being fearful, aggressive, or reactive. Behaviors of this nature typically come from an emotional response and cannot be simply trained away. However, there is help for you if you have a dog of this nature. A Certified Dog Behavior Consultant not only works with dogs on basic training issues but also works with people that have dogs with more serious behavioral problems. You can find such a consultant at the website for the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants at

You can find more information on training your dog at our website,  or at the Green Acres Kennel Shop FaceBook page.
