"What I love about Hudson's teaching is that he gets inside the dogs brain and almost rewires it by rewarding good behavior."

Worth absolutely every penny! Hudson is amazing and will have your dog behaving liked you always hoped they would."

I'm often complimented by passersby who say, "Wow! What an amazingly well behaved dog! Who trained him?" HUDSON SHOCK!"

"I would strongly urge anyone with a rescue or new dog to train with Hudson. You won't be disappointed!"

"A lady asked me on my hike today if I was a professional dog trainer! LOL!! NO! but... I learned the techniques I'm using from Hudson Shock at Best Dogs Ever and highly recommend him!"
