Welcome to the ultimate doggie destination:
Dairydell's Doggie Dude Ranch & Training Center!
On a historic dairy farm in California's Sonoma County, Kurt and Camilla Gray/Nelson have transformed their working ranch into a dog-lover's dreamland. Dairydell, as the ranch is called, has been noted as a premier dog training establishment since 1989, featuring Camilla's unique style of natural dog training under her familiar motto: "Wild to Wonderful." The cows are still there, but now canines rule!
Dairydell training classes provide practical tips for women on stopping common household behaviors like jumping, barking, digging, counter-surfing and more. Women learn quiet control to change their dog's behavior (no yelling or bravado). They will take away valuable lessons for becoming more effective in other areas of their life as well.
Providing a good foundation for your new puppy is essential. In fact, learning to choose the right puppy from the get-go is even more important!
Dairydell offers Puppy "Good Start" Consultations as well as "Matchmaker" Advice and "Baby-Ready" Training for puppies or older dogs of families expecting a new "addition" into their household. See classes here....
