Best Dogs Ever - Positive Reinforcement Dog Training by Hudson Shocl

Hudson is a professional studio dog trainer, a member of the APDT, a Certified Professional Dog Trainer - Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA) and a member of the Pet Professional Guild.

His previous two boxers were both Canine Good Citizens and Certified Therapy Dogs, and worked professionally in feature film and tv.  His current two dogs are benefitting that Hudson is too busy with Best Dogs Ever to have time to put them in movies!  They just get to have fun.  Poor dogs.

Hudson does private, in-home, force-free, reward-based positive dog training methods to create dogs that obey reliably and enthusiastically.

Training your dog never really ends and your dog will be learning throughout its entire life – which is why once you start training with Best Dogs Ever, you get our "Lifetime Tech Support" for your dog: For as long as you own your dog, we will be available through phone, text or email to answer any training or behavior related questions about your dog. (Any medical questions should always go to your vet!) It may take us a day to get back in touch with you, but we will. We'll be happy to talk your ear off on the phone, or write you a lengthy email of information. If it's a problem we need to show up in person for, we'll have to set up a session and charge you, but once you've begun training, our time remotely is free of charge.

Schedule a Phone Conversation

It all starts here. Schedule a FREE 20 minute phone conversation, either to set up a session or just to ask us any questions you may have about our approach, your dog, whatever.

"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!"
