Dog trainers & behaviorists


Pia Silvani has been teaching for over 30 years starting with dance, track and field and swimming where her accomplishments and achievements were internationally recognized. But she found her true calling in coaching and teaching dogs, and continues to receive international recognition and accolades in the many programs she has developed.

For 25 years, Pia was Vice President of Training and Behavior as well as Behavior Specialist at St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center in Madison, NJ. Pia developed numerous courses focused on positive, reward-based techniques, which are extremely effective in the enhancement of the bond and relationship of the dog with his/her human companion. The result was an astounding 100+ classes per week, which included 8 levels of pet training classes, and specialty courses designed for dogs with extreme behavioral problems.

Pia continues to train new trainers and has written six training manuals which are used nationally as a resource guide for other trainers. She offers workshops around the world on enrichment, training, and behavior modification for the shelter dog and pet dogs or cats.
