"I was planning a traditional career, but sometimes life takes us to some unexpected places.” When she branched out from hobby to charging others for her services, she started with house calls on the weekends. Gray-Nelson laughs, “Have truck, will train — you know? "

Among the many ranches and farms that adorn the rolling hills of Petaluma is a place called Dairydell Canine; it’s what some might consider heaven on earth for dogs.

Owner Camilla Gray-Nelson, otherwise known as the “Dog Talk Diva,” is a professional dog trainer, born and raised on a dairy farm in Petaluma, who’s been working with animals her whole life.

Gray-Nelson, who began training dogs and owners in 1989, started as a dog breeder, exhibitor and competitor in AKC competitions. “Dairydell” was her breeding kennel name. Gray-Nelson never planned on being a dog trainer. Rather, it was a hobby while she worked for the government and then in the wine industry. Gray-Nelson says, “I was planning a traditional career, but sometimes life takes us to some unexpected places.” When she branched out from hobby to charging others for her services, she started with house calls on the weekends. Gray-Nelson laughs, “Have truck, will train — you know?”

Camilla Gray-Nelson

Camilla has over 50 years experience with animals (she grew up on the farm!). She has trained, bred and shown dogs since 1989 and brings this broad background and knowledge of dog behavior to her clients and her business. Her life-long understanding of the animal mind helped her develop what has become her signature style of natural dog training and voice control, now simply referred to as the “Dairydell Method”. Camilla and her Dairydell Method have been featured in numerous newspaper and magazine articles, as well as on San Francisco TV’s Evening Magazine and View From the Bay. Camilla loves teaching – whether it’s dogs, their owners, or the horses you see her riding in Dairydell’s beautiful arena. When she’s not training, teaching or riding, Camilla is writing about her favorite subject: dogs and their people! Camilla holds professional memberships in both the National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors (NADOI) and the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP).
