Camilla Teaching Dogs

Camilla Gray-Nelson is a dog trainer that proudly calls herself a farmer’s daughter. Her “natural” approach to communication, leadership and power has launched her to success not only with dogs—but with a wide and varied human clientele as well. She has taken her farm-girl wisdom to the masses, sharing the secrets of power and influence from the animal world with corporate leaders, women, parents and couples alike. So don’t be fooled. Camilla is not just another dog trainer! She is President of Dairydell Inc. and owner of Dairydell Canine, the fastest growing dog training center in Northern California. She’s an innovator, a powerful communicator and a woman on a mission.

Camilla coaches, cajoles and commands her audience, teaching important life lessons on leadership and personal empowerment in an unlikely way—through the process of dog training. Drawing upon her years of studying animal behavior, Camilla discusses the subtler side of leadership—why bigger and louder isn’t better and how leadership cues can be applied to all of life’s important situations. It’s a powerful but pragmatic approach designed to help audiences better achieve their goals—with their dogs and in their lives.

Camilla’s humor, wit and unique message have led media outlets to her door. Her energy, passion and commitment to teaching “natural leadership” make her one of today’s most in-demand speakers.

Lipstick And The Leash: Dog Training A Woman's Way

Camilla’s book, LIPSTICK AND THE LEASH: Dog Training a Woman’s Way was named Best Book of 2012 by the Dog Writer’s Association of America, and was also awarded the Maxwell Medallion for Best Training Book.

In response to receiving these honors for her book, Camilla said, “I’m thrilled to have received these honors not only because they recognize the very best writing within the industry, but because the spotlight will mean more women will be exposed to the message of empowerment that the book carries. Women need to know that when they really understand their relationship with their dogs, they have a better opportunity to understand themselves and their relationships with the two-legged animals in their lives.”

Although this is the first book from the noted dog trainer, Gray-Nelson is a regular contributor to the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP) “Safe Hands” Journal and is a frequent blogger known by her witty online persona “The Dog Talk Diva.”

Gray-Nelson is quickly becoming the “go-to” dog expert for peers, media outlets and corporate sponsors alike and is already busy working on her follow-up book.

When not working on her writing projects, Gray-Nelson can be found running her Dairydell Doggie Dude Ranch training and boarding facility, speaking at industry and community forums, and conducting one of her many training seminars. For more information visit: or
