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

Dominance, pack hierarchy and the concept of being “alpha” have been common ideas thrown about the dog training world for years. On Saturday, February 9th, Green Acres will be hosting a screening of the documentary film Tough Love: A Meditation on Dominance and Dogs which examines how these flawed theories came about and how there has been a resurgence in this approach by some celebrity “Television trainers”, even though it is contraindicated by science. The films maker, Professor Chad Montrie and members of the Green Acres Kennel Shop training staff will be on hand to answer questions at the conclusion of the film. We have limited seating for this event so we suggest you call 945-6841 to preregister.

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