Hudson — Service

Location: Glastonbury, Connecticut

Hudson deserves this award because of his ability to work. Though he is a Siberian Husky he has exceeded all expectations from me. From his willingness to learn, his eagerness to work, and his amazing temperament this dog is overall a perfect service animal. Dogs pass by us in public with no problem. People who try to pet Hudson are ignored by him and he only greets when I give him the command. Hudson is able to work off leash if need be and has never left my side. When he was a puppy he was extremely vocal; moreso than he is now! He has surprised me by calming down and refraining from much noise. Pulling was another issue but within a day of rigorous training he was taught to stay by my side and heel nicely. Hudson has saved my life many times over and there will never be another dog like him.
