Behind Durango’s Storefronts:

Diane Wray with Diane’s Clever K9s

Diane Wray is my dog trainer, so getting to know her better through this interview was great fun. You don’t interrupt a class of puppies to ask your instructor where she picked up such a beautiful accent, but in this interview, I discovered Diane is from Scotland.

Fittingly, Diane picked Santa Rita Park for our interview locale, so we discussed the value of outdoor training to experience distractions. Most of Diane’s training classes are held at Creature Comforts in their adjacent ample space. This is where my puppy, Phoenix, and I spent five Tuesday afternoons learning the basics from Diane.

While the space is ample, Diane limits participation numbers in her classes. She also brings in an assistant to help with the human-to-dog ratio. Everything about Diane’s puppy class was very well-balanced. I’ll trust Diane to continue my dog’s training journey.

Diane has a lot to offer dog owners in Durango. From puppy classes to basic obedience, AKC Canine Good Citizen and Rally training, and private classes, Diane offers it all. Be sure to listen to the interview to learn more about each.

Diane practices what she teaches with her own dogs who rank among the masters in competitions. This genuine spirit flows through her teaching and every interaction you’ll have. I hope you get a chance to meet Diane Wray soon!


I recently finished the five-week puppy class with Diane. We had a delightful time. It was a great experience learning basic training commands and exchanges in an environment with other people and other dogs. – Kelly Miller
