Tell us about yourself and your company: The entrepreneurial bug bit early and by 1981, I was on my path.  I started Dairydell in 1989 -- a dog training hobby that soon became my livelihood.

Raised on my family’s Petaluma dairy, I learned the language of animals and that skill was to lead meto my eventual profession.  I now own and operate Dairydell Canine Doggie Dude Ranch & Training Center -- on a family ranch which I converted from cows to canines.

Under my newest Dairydell brand, Dog Talk Diva, I specialize in helping women find their power – starting but not ending with the family dog.  I’ve launched a new line of dog training products for women and am doing more public speaking.   My book, “LIPSTICK AND THE LEASH: Dog Training a Woman’s Way” released in March.

I’m excited for the future and where this path will take me.
