In this episode of The Woof Meow Show from March 28th, 2020, Kate and Don have a conversation with Jennifer Shryock about keeping children and dogs safe. We believe this podcast will be especially useful to anyone called upon to supervise the interactions between a child and a dog. This podcast is not just for people with kids and dogs. Any professional that works with parents, children, and dogs can benefit from this information.

Jennifer Shryock is the founder of Family Paws Parent Education and is an excellent resource for helping parents manage a home with a little human and a canine. As a mother, pet parent, teacher, and Certified Dog Behavior Consultant, Jennifer knows how to help mom, dad, a child, and the dog live in harmony.

In this show, we discuss the behaviors dogs need to learn to perform reliably and the fact that training a dog takes time. Prepping the dog and your home for the arrival of the baby should begin many months ahead of time. If the dog has anxiety or fear issues, working with a veterinary behaviorist may be essential and should start even earlier than training. Jennifer discusses the importance of parents learning how to familiarize themselves with carrying an infant while interacting with the dog and recommends that be done before the child ever comes home.

You can hear The Woof Meow Show on Z62 Retro Radio, AM620, and WKIT HD3 at 9 AM on Saturday. If you are not near a radio, listen on your computer at http://bit.ly/AM620-WZON or your smartphone or tablet with the free WZON 620 AM app. A podcast of the show is typically posted immediately after the show.

In this episode of The Woof Meow Show from March 14th, 2020, Kate and Don discuss several recent articles in the news about dogs and cats. The topics they discuss include; cats and some of the things we do that cause our feline friend’s undue stress. Directly related to that is an article that discusses the best way to pet a cat, so it is an enjoyable experience for both you and the cat. Then we divert to dogs, answering the question, why does my dog kick when I scratch him a certain place? Next, we look at seasonal allergies, an issue for both people and pets, and how climate change is likely to make the suffering from seasonal allergies worse. We address two common training questions; the puppy that doesn’t like to go for a walk and the dog that bites at his leash. Also, we discuss an article that explains why some foods make better training rewards than others. You can find links to all of the articles we discussed below.

In this episode of The Woof Meow Show from August 24th, 2019,  – Don and Kate speak with Suzan Prendergast & Stacey Coventry from the Bangor Humane Society about their capital campaign; Building4Tomorrow and the 26th annual Paws on Parade celebration and fundraiser.

Listen, and you will learn how BHS’s success in reducing the number of homeless pets in the Bangor region is driving the move to provide an even better environment for pets in need of a loving home. This capital campaign will fund a major renovation of the BHS building http://www.BHSbuilding4Tomorrow.org. The project focuses on reducing stress for the animals awaiting a new home at BHS while providing a space that allows for a supportive and compassionate environment for those surrendering or adopting a pet. The redesigned environment will also enable staff to be more efficient.

Paws on Parade is the annual fundraiser and celebration for BHS that funds approximately 8% of their annual costs for animal care while allowing the community to celebrate this vital work. You can learn how you can join in the fun at https://www.bangorhumane.org/programs-events/paws-on-parade/

Podcast – DCM, the FDA, and Dog Food-the Science and the Hype with Canine Nutritionist Linda Case

< short link to this page – http://bit.ly/Blog-DCM-FDA-8AUG19 >

< Click to Listen to Podcast >

If you are concerned about heart disease in your pets and grain-free pet foods using non-standard proteins, you will not want to miss this show.

In this episode of The Woof Meow Show from August 10th, 2019 Kate and Don speak with canine nutritionist Linda Case, author of Dog Food Logic. Our topic is the June 29th, 2019 press release from the FDA addressing their current investigation into a reported increase in cases of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in dogs and an alleged connection to what a few veterinarians are calling ‘BEG’ (Boutique, Exotic ingredient, Grain-free) pet foods.  We will discuss:

  • Is there a proven correlation between DCM and ‘BEG’ foods?
  • Has the investigation by the FDA been designed to meet the criteria for peer-reviewed scientific research?
  • Has the FDA withheld information on some of the foods fed to dogs reported with DCM?
  • Big pet food and how a few companies control what we feed our pets.

Podcast – What’s Shocking About Shock – What Science Tells Us About the Use of Shock in Dog Training

< A short link to this post – http://bit.ly/WfMw-WhatShock-27JUL19 >

< Click to Listen to Podcast >

In this episode of The Woof Meow Show from July 27th, 2019 Kate interviews Don, asking him about his article, What’s Shocking About Shock – What Science Tells Us About the Use of Shock in Dog Training, published in the July 2019 issue of BARKS from The Guild, the journal of the Pet Professional Guild (PPG).

The use of electric shock for training, containing, and caring for dogs is extremely controversial. In this podcast we examine and discuss what peer-reviewed scientific studies report about the use of shock and answer four common questions; Does electric shock hurt?, Is electric shock more efficient for training dogs than reward-based training?, Is electric shock necessary for training behaviors like snake aversion?, and Does electric shock save dogs lives? Additionally, we review the formal positions taken on the use of shock by several organizations of pet care professionals from around the globe, and also examine the countries where the use of shock has already been banned.

If you are using shock or contemplating using shock you will want to hear what science says by listening to this show/podcast; your dog’s health and welfare may depend on you understanding this controversial tool and its harmful side effects. We also recommend you also read Don’s article and all of the scientific studies that he cites in the article, all of which you can link to at Don’s blog at http://bit.ly/ShockBARK-JUL2019.

Podcast – Pet’s in the News–No. 4 Pet Food, DCM and The FDA

< A short link to this post –  http://bit.ly/WfMw-DCM-FDA-20JUL19 >

< Click to Listen to Podcast >

In this episode of The Woof Meow Show from July 20th, 2019 Kate and Don discuss one of the hottest topics in the news and social media; pet food and dilated cardiomyopathy in pets, and the FDA’s June press release. There has been an incredible amount of “news” on this topic, much of it more conjecture and misinformation than useful facts. Kate and Don review four new articles on this subject that add clarity to the information missing from the nightly news.

If you are worried about what you are feeding your pet, you will want to listen to this show and podcast.

You can hear The Woof Meow Show on Z62 Retro Radio, AM620, and WKIT HD3 at 9 AM on Saturday. If you are not near a radio, listen on your computer at http://bit.ly/AM620-WZON or your smartphone or tablet with the free WZON 620 AM app. A podcast of the show is typically posted immediately after the show. You can download this show and others at http://woofmeowshow.libsyn.com/, at Don’s blog http://bit.ly/Words-Woofs-Meows and the Apple iTunes store.
