Sit Stay Play Michigan offers basic obedience and manners training for puppies and dogs in Midland, MI.
Laura Ornelas is the owner / trainer of Sit Stay Play Michigan LLC. Laura is originally from New Mexico and has now settled in Midland, Mi after 14 moves as a military wife and a 20 year career as a Special Education teacher. Laura has had dogs in her life since childhood and became interested in training in 2008 when one of her dogs experienced some behavioral challenges. She worked with trainers in Austin, Tx who asked her to come to work with them after a few months of being a client. Laura worked with them and learned from them for the next 4 years before moving to Colorado. Laura decided she needed to go through some formal training to become a certified dog trainer, and attended the Animal Behavioral College and did an internship with Wag Dog Training in Colorado Springs and graduated in 2013. She joined the Association of Professional Dog Trainers and the Pet Professional Guild, and attends their continuing education seminars and conferences yearly to stay informed on the latest science based training techniques and information.
Laura uses positive training methods to teach owners how to train their dogs in a fun and stress free environment. Sit Stay Play Michigan offers group classes and private lessons, as well as in-home consultations for new puppy parents in the Midland area.
