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

Electronic shock collars are used on dogs to keep them in the yard, to train them, and to stop barking. Often they are used without the dog's owners fully understanding the huge potential for negative consequences associated with the use of electric shock. In this show Don and Kate will discuss why Green Acres Kennel Shop discourages the use of shock collars for any reason. We'll discuss what shock collars are, how they work and what they're used for as well as alternatives to shock collars. We'll discuss why we discourage their use and some of the dogs we have seen that have been negatively affected by being shocked. We'll also discuss what veterinary behavioral experts say about shock collars as well as an article on the Green Acres website ( which explores this topic in more detail and includes links to research in this area.
