Professor Hudson Inurlap
Hudson is a “person whisperer” with a profound sensitivity and responsiveness to the full range of human emotions — skills he developed after a stubbornly prolonged period of housebreaking. He provides “paws-on” support by absorbing boundless anxiety to help regulate emotions in the moment and promote mindfulness for others simply by touch and petting.
Hudson keeps irregular office hours, but is generally available upon request and offers his services for free.
Professor Inurlap splits his time between Nyack and a weekend place, where his principal activities include sleeping, eating, chasing and losing lots of tennis balls in a nearby swimming hole, and combating the herding instincts of his bossy sister, a German Shepherd.
Hudson was home-schooled by a military K-9 specialist and his family members.
