Here at Companion Animal Hospital, we understand that bringing in a new puppy is an exciting time, but can also bring on some new stressors. Our instructor, Estella Meraz KPA-CTP, offers a wide range of classes.

Estella has been with our clinic for over 12 years. She is a registered veterinary technician and certified dog behaviorist. Estella uses force-free training methods and Karen Pryor clicker-training techniques. Below is a list of the classes available. If you would like more information please call either of our locations.
