2012 Global Pet Expo Dog Products Launch Targeted To Women

by Camilla Gray-Nelson

Camilla Gray-Nelson, also known by her witty online personae Dog Talk Diva™ announced that she will unveil a new Dog Talk Diva™ product line at Global Pet Expo 2012, February 29-March 2, in Orlando FL (Booth 3272). These dog products are targeted to the unique challenges women face in the training and management of the family dog.

Dog product offerings include the humorously titled “What Did Mama Say” Follow-Through Tab and “Coming Mother” Recall Line among others. Retail prices for the line range from $8.50 to $24.99 per unit and will be available at pet product retailers beginning April, 2012.

They travel with the family, wear designer brands and frequently use high tech and eco-friendly toys. But with these additional privileges often come increased expectations regarding training—the responsibility for which rests primarily with the woman of the house.

“Throughout my career, women have sought my help in getting the family dog under control. Most often it’s well-intended but ineffectual methods of training (relying on physical strength, bravado or endless cookies) that leads them to me. With my new line of Dog Talk Diva products, I feel I can finally provide women with the kind of tools they need to be more successful. These products reflect my core belief in calm power and leadership and continuing commitment to help all women become leaders with their dog.”

~ An instruction guide for women who need help controlling their dogs.

No wonder – since 3 out of 4 households leave dog care to a woman! Author Camilla Gray-Nelson, a.k.a. the Dog Talk Diva™, explains that it’s not about “Sit” when it comes to controlling a canine.  It’s not about manhandling, yelling or cookies, either.

Using her farm-girl wisdom, Camilla shares that “top dogs” in the animal world aren’t the ones doing the barking and fighting; they are cool, calm and collected.  She points out that we are all animals at our core and, because of this, can get what we want from our dog in the same way the top dog achieves what he wants: through quiet focus, feedback and follow-through.

About Camilla Gray-Nelson

When I started training dogs professionally, it was women who sought out my help. Responsibility for the family dog typically falls to them, after all. Their homes were in chaos; they were yelling at their dogs – and their kids – and couldn’t control either one. The life skills of personal power that I learned as a child (and assumed everyone else had, too), turned out to be rare among my clients. Since that time, it has been my personal goal to share Nature’s message of quiet power with women (and men) everywhere to help them become more effective not only with their dogs, but in their greater lives as well.

Thanks for the affirmation. Also check out my new book, being released in just a few weeks! LIPSTICK AND THE LEASH: Dog Training a Woman’s Way. (www.lipstickandtheleash.com) The Dog Talk Diva product line was inspired by the book to help women (and men) put my training advice into practice.

The products are designed to help women with the real issues in their lives: stay where I can see you, don’t jump on me or the kids, please don’t pet my shy dog….that sort of thing. Hope you find them useful! You can also order LIPSTICK AND THE LEASH, my training book, on the dogtalkstore.

Happy Tails,
