About Me
First Name: 
Last Name: 

Estella Meraz is the owner of Pup Academy and the Behavior Coordinator at Companion Animal Hospital, both in Wichita, Kansas. She is proud to be Wichita's first Karen Pryor Academy (KPA) Certified Training Partner (CTP).

Pup Academy is located on the west side of Wichita and offers Puppy Start Right classes, Behavior Management classes, Private In-home classes, and Behavior Modification appointments.


In 2002, my family moved to Wichita, Kansas, from Colorado. In Colorado, I joined Companion Animal Hospital, beginning as a kennel technician. Eventually I started working in the Doggy Daycare, which has fueled my interest in canine behavior. I'm currently the Behavior Coordinator, the Head of Daycare, and a puppy preschool instructor. As Behavior Coordinator, I train all employees on low-stress handling techniques that ensure that all dogs and cats have a low-stress experience during a vet visit.

I am enrolled in the Colby distance learning Veterinary Technology Program. On completion of the program, I intend to work toward Veterinary Behavior Technician certification. I also plan to continue to help pet owners with any behavior issues, working together to improve their pets’ quality of life.
