About our training center
Obedience training may be the most valuable gift you can ever give your canine companion. Proper training will enable your dog to become a well-behaved family member, participating in daily activities both at home and in public. Training also strengthens the special bond you share with your best friend.
Established in 1983, St. Hubert's acclaimed school offers one of the most comprehensive and respected dog training and behavior counseling programs in the nation.
Classes are conducted in St. Hubert's brand new training facility now located at our 575 Woodland Avenue Campus in Madison, New Jersey. Fully air-conditioned for year-round comfort, our school features three large, fully matted and cushioned training rings. Outdoor classes are offered seasonally in a spacious yet secure area on site.
Through humane methods such as reward-based training, fair leadership and simple kindness, more than 4,000 canine diplomas are awarded annually.
"Training goes beyond the pleasures of a well-behaved dog. It strengthens the bond we share with our canine companions by teaching owner and dog how to effectively communicate with one another."
Pia Silvani, Assistant Vice President & Behavior Specialist
The St. Hubert’s Scholarship Fund was created to help animals that are adopted adjust to their new home and bond with their new family. We all know that the more time we spend with our pets, the stronger our connection and the better our communication with them is. For an adopted animal, it also increases the odds that they will not be returned to the shelter for behavior issues.
For every $100 collected, we will grant a full scholarship to one of our training classes (for our canine companions) or a private, in home session (for our feline friends). Our goal is to collect enough donations to offer this to every animal available for adoption at any St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center location.
Please consider donating to this amazing fund and help us give the gift of learning to homeless animals in need. Whether you choose to give a one-time gift or choose to make it a recurring, monthly donation, your help is greatly appreciated by all of us.
