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

One of the old myths about training a dog is that a dog should do things for us just because they want to please us. Many popular, but extremely outdated training books have even suggested that you should never reward your dog with food. Now take a minute and think. How many management text books have you read that suggest employees should only work to please us and that we should never compensate workers with money. Right… none, at least none written in this century. The fact is dogs are like us in that they do something because there is something in it for them They also work much cheaper… it’s amazing how far you can get with a few tiny treats.

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