Local Government

The town operates under a Mayor-Council form of government, a system that provides a clear separation of powers. The Mayor, serving as the chief executive officer, is elected for a four-year term and oversees the town’s day-to-day operations. The Mayor’s responsibilities include enforcing town laws, appointing department heads, and preparing the annual budget. The town’s legislative powers are vested in the Town Council, which consists of eight members. These representatives are elected for a term of four years from the town’s four wards, with two representatives per ward. The Council’s duties encompass enacting ordinances, approving the budget, and shaping the town’s policies. This balanced governance structure ensures a fair representation of all Westfield residents’ interests and fosters a responsible and responsive local government.

School System

Westfield boasts an exemplary public school system that is consistently ranked among the best in the state. Comprising six elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school, the district is recognized for its academic excellence, dedicated faculty, and extensive extracurricular offerings. The elementary schools provide a nurturing learning environment to foster a love of learning and foundational skills in young students. Middle schools focus on helping students transition from elementary school, preparing them for the rigors of high school with a robust curriculum that balances academics, arts, and physical education. Westfield High School is renowned for its rigorous course offerings, including numerous Advanced Placement (AP) and honors classes, and a wide array of activities and athletic programs. The commitment to student success, a supportive community, and an atmosphere that encourages intellectual curiosity make the Westfield School District a cornerstone of the community.


Downtown Westfield, often referred to as ‘the heart of the town’, is a vibrant hub teeming with life and activity. It is renowned for its broad range of businesses, offering a unique mix of over 200 retail stores, restaurants, and service establishments. Patrons from Westfield and beyond are drawn to the downtown area for its charming boutiques, high-end retailers, and an array of dining options varying from cozy cafes to international cuisine. In addition to shopping and dining, Westfield’s downtown is also a cultural center, home to the Westfield Symphony Orchestra and the New Jersey Workshop for the Arts. The downtown district is a hotspot for community events too, including ‘Jazz Fest’, ‘Festifall’, and the popular ‘Westfield in Bloom’ flower show, further fostering a strong sense of community. With its historic architecture, beautifully maintained parks, and pedestrian-friendly streets, downtown Westfield effortlessly blends the charm of yesteryears with modern-day amenities, offering an enriching experience to its visitors.

As a professional dog trainer, I cannot stress enough the importance of professional dog training. Engaging a professional trainer ensures that your pet receives a well-rounded education, thus promoting good behavior and enhancing your bond with your pet. Professionals possess the knowledge and skills to handle all sorts of canine behaviors and can provide personalized training based on your dog’s temperament, breed, and specific needs.

Training a dog isn’t merely about teaching commands; it’s about teaching them manners and appropriate social behavior. This is where professional training shines: we know how to instill these lessons effectively and humanely. Professionally trained dogs tend to be better behaved, less prone to behavioral issues, and more socially adept.

Moreover, we offer off-leash obedience training. This advanced level of training requires a deep bond of trust between the dog and handler and allows your dog to enjoy a greater sense of freedom safely. It also adds an extra layer of convenience for you, the owner, especially during outdoor activities.

Allowing a professional to train your dog can save you valuable time and avoid frustration, ensuring the training process is a positive experience for both you and your pet. Remember, when your dog behaves better, they become an even more integral part of the family. Happy training!

I want to thank John Soares and his staff, for their remarkable training with our 5 year old German Shepherd, Duke. Prior to training with John Soares, my wife found Duke to be unmanageable when walking Duke outside. Duke became Dog Aggressive. Duke's tugging and barking had to be addressed.Having trained with John Soares years ago with success, I had total confidence, John and his excellent experienced staff would correct Dukes behavior. After John evaluated Dukes behavior, John explained to my wife and I in great detail, why Duke behaved in this manner. John designed a custom training plan to aid in Dukes training. Understand, No two dogs are alike.With Johns advice, my wife and I scheduled Duke for a Board and Stay Training. On a frequent basis during Dukes stay, John sent use training videos of Dukes improvement. John always maintain open lines of communication.After completing Dukes stay, John did a series of one on one training sessions with Duke, both my wife and I. The results were positive and enlightening.Both my wife and I applaud John Soares and his excellent and experience training staff with working with Duke. Having worked as a volunteer in a local kennel, I seen to many dogs surrendered for this type of behavior. I knew if anyone could correct this behavior, John Soares could.There are dog trainers and then there is John Soares. The teacher of trainers. Johns knowledge and experience with canines must be recognized as Outstanding. John has a God given Gift with training and communicating with Mans Best Friend.Both my wife and I highly recommend John Soares and no other.John with out doubt is a FIVE STAR TRAINER an a Great Guy!!!

Our 1 year old GSD just finished his board and train. We cannot say enough great things about John and his training. I mean just look at his history! You can immediately tell his passion for this is genuine. We cannot recommend him enough. Our Echo had a tough life before us. We all believe he was not dumped, but he was an escape artist and they forgot to microchip him on time. With that, he did not know proper manners. After the shelter found him as a stray, he was adopted and then surrendered THREE times by THREE different families. All because he lacked obedience, which was never his fault. John has not only trained Echo, but also trains us so that we are setting him up for continued success. We will definitely be continuing training with him. Thank you John and your team for taking great care of our boy.

Highly recommend!!! John is amazing at training. He and the entire staff have gone above and beyond to ensure our dog was properly trained. He provided clear instructions and responded promptly to any of our questions. We are forever grateful to John and his team. Our dog is so much better at walking— no more pulling me or dragging me across neighbors lawns or chasing squirrels!!! . Again I highly recommend this place for any dog training needs. You will not be disappointed! Thank you John!

We highly recommend John as a trainer! After interviewing many trainers in for our 18-month old Rottweiler, and after he evaluated our dog, we though that John was the best at setting our expectations for her training, putting in practical terms what goals we could achieve and how we would get there. Our dog spent 5 weeks with John and we are really happy with her training. John not only trained our dog but the 4 post-board training sessions with us and our dog, trained us how to handle her as well. We found John to be really observant correcting our body language and verbal cues, explaining to us what our dog’s perspective is. This helped us to adjust our routines with her at home and proof his training. We look forward to her next training session with him as we make progress together!
