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

Most of us realize that our dog needs a nail trim when our legs get scratched or our nylons ruined, but the reality is that dogs need their nails kept short to avoid possible pain and discomfort, infections and in severe cases problems with their paws and joints. A dog walking with overlong nails is much like us walking with a pebble in our shoes. A very easy check to determine if your dog’s nails are too long is to visually inspect each foot or simply listen as your dog crosses the kitchen floor. If you hear that Click, Click, Click that means your dog needs a nail trim. We can trim your dog's nails at Green Acres or we can show you how to do it yourself at home.

You can find more information on dogs and cats at our website,  or at the Green Acres Kennel Shop FaceBook page.
