Ms. Pia Silvani, CPDT

Pia is Director of Pet Training and Behavior Counseling at St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center, Madison, New Jersey. Through research, continuing education, and enthusiasm she was instrumental in developing a pet training curriculum focusing on positive, reward-based techniques, which are extremely effective in the enhancement of the bond and relationship of the dog and her human companion. The result of her efforts is an astounding 75+ classes per week, which includes 8 levels of pet training classes, specialty courses designed for dogs with extreme behavioral problems and much more. She has written five training manuals, which are being used around the country as a resource guide for other trainers. Pia also developed a behavioral department, which offers a wide range of private consultations in both canine and feline behavior.
