I am Rebekah Hudson. I am a Fear Free CVT, a founding member of Force Free Oregon, Admin of Canine Research Studies Facebook group, and moderator of Do No Harm Dog Training Facebook group. I have a B.Sc. in Biology and am currently working on a masters in Biostatistics (basically doing math for scientists). I love training animals, but training people not so much, so I adopt reactive dogs and help them transform into good canine citizens. My work experience has lead to skills in finding, reading, and understanding scientific papers.
I never thought of myself as a writer, but a few authors and several friends gave me a push to start this blog including Linda Michaels who asked me to write about the practice of taking dogs to the back of veterinary hospitals. Before publishing an post I typically seek a respected trainer to edit and provide feedback. My goal with this blog is to help address important topics related to dogs and include any supporting scientific evidence when possible.
