we are a woman centric dog training company

We are a woman-centric company, so our training reflects a mother-like teaching style – firm, fair and friendly. We rely on rules and boundaries -- quietly but consistently enforced – to earn your dog’s respect, admiration and obedience.

We will teach you how to control and get willing cooperation from your dog through simple enforcement and follow-through techniques – no yelling, punishment or bribery. Our famous Quiet Control is nature-based, patterned after dogs themselves and specifically how the mother dog teaches her young the rules and order of the “family.”

Our Board and Train Service is the
Gold Standard of the Industry.

For 25 years, Dairydell has been helping Marin and Sonoma County dogs and owners reach their full relationship potential. Led by trainer and award-winning author, Camilla Gray-Nelson, the Dairydell training team brings over 40 years of dog training experience to your special dog. You name it, we’ve seen it and we know how to approach and deal with it.

If you are shopping around for trainers, here are some reasons to choose Dairydell:

  • We are the ONLY Board and Train featuring dog training for women
  • We are the ONLY Board and Train offering an affordable, modular program with entry level options as short as 1 week, with additional modules which can be added a week or more at a time at any future date.
  • We are the ONLY Board and Train which focuses as much on service “after the sale” as we do on making the sale. When your dog “graduates”, it is just the beginning of our relationship. Owner training classes at our Petaluma Training Facility are included in every training package and ongoing Maintenance Classes are held on Saturdays for all our graduates, all year long!
  • We’ve never had an advertising budget. Instead, we invest in your success so you will send your friends. Our amazing business has been honestly built on sincere referrals from grateful clients and there’s no better marketing plan we can think of.

We look forward to serving you and your dog soon!

Our standard weekly rate for Board and Train is $1250., including owner classes & maintenance.
With our Introductory Special, however, your first week is just $999.

Meeting Your Dog's Needs.... and Yours!

Professional Dog Training in Marin and Sonoma Counties
Your dog will learn basic obedience at an accelerated rate under the guidance of a professional trainer. Your dog's personality and happiness is foremost.

Manners
Does your dog jump up, bolt out the door, steal food, get on the furniture, or anything else that is dangerous or annoying? Let us help!

Daily Playtime
While he is here, your dog can enjoy romping with other canines in a large play yard or run, complete with things to climb on, run through or play with. FUN! FUN! FUN!  If he would rather play with humans, we can provide that, too.

Temperature-Controlled Sleeping Quarters
Cool or cozy - Summer or Winter.

Boarding Fee Discounts
Our 3 and 4-Week courses entitle your dog to discounted boarding fees when he returns to Dairydell for boarding while you are away.

Options for Special Needs
Personalize your dog's program with options like crate training, weight loss / conditioning, car and vet-manners - even sheep herding.. Let us customize a training program that's just right for you both!

All training packages include maintenance classes and tutorial with your dog's new commands and how to give them. Dairydell's Owner-Training program is the most complete in the industry. Really!
