Thank you so much for contacting me!  Please take a few minutes to answer the following questions below so that I can better assist you.  Once I have received and reviewed it, I will respond via the method(s) you have provided.  IF you have difficulties with the form please email sheila@hudsonshounds.com or call/text 403 304 4987. 

I am a certified Dog Trainer and accredited Professional Canine Behavior Consultant, I hold a diploma in Canine Behavior Science and Technology, I am a licensed and certified Family Paws Parent Educator and a member of the Alberta Force Free Alliance.  For more information about me or my education, please visit the “About Us / Certifications” section, to the left of this page.

My education is science based and my methods are FORCE FREE.  I will not be offering suggestions which include any form of pain, fear or intimidation.  What I will offer, are suggestions based on peer reviewed, scientific methods that reinforce good choices and wanted behaviors rather than punishing the ones that we don’t want.  I will help you to understand the myths and dangers behind “pack” or “dominance” theory and encourage building a strong bond rather than a relationship built on intimidation or fear.

Your dog is my passion and I will do all I can to help you with your furry family member!  If scheduling or any other conflicts arise, I am happy to forward your information on to another Force Free professional, with your consent.

Classes are held year round in Red Deer and in the summer in Rimbey when the demand is there. Seminars will be held periodically throughout the year. Please contact me via email for more information at sheila@hudsonshounds.com .
