Whether you have a new puppy or an adult dog, if you’re looking for help from basic training to tackling specific issues such as pulling on the lead to poor recall then book a 1-1 dog training session with Hanne Grice.

1-1 dog training can be booked in one hour slots for either in-person or virtually as a one-off session with Hanne, or depending on your specific needs, you can book a course of sessions which will be tailored to you and your dog. See an example of a remote video conference below.

How do you know if you need 1-1 training rather than behavioural consultancy and what’s the difference? Please checkout my article to help guide you on this. Details for pricing and how to book 1-1 training are below.

Still unsure whether you need training or behaviour?

Consider a 1-1 virtual troubleshooting appointment; this gives you one hour to borrow Hanne’s brain where she can understand your situation more fully, and provide remedial advice to get you going. This is a popular choice where some behaviours could be a breakdown in basic training or more complex factors may be motivating the undesirable behaviours. This way you know the advice you are getting is top-notch, from a registered Clinical Animal Behaviourist and trainer, serving as a hybrid for behaviour consultancy and 1-1 training, priced £80.

Training sessions

Your training sessions will include:

  • Discussing you and your dog’s individual needs 
  • Creating a bespoke session programme to set you and your dog up for success
  • Practical training elements
  • Action plan and handouts to follow between your training sessions

The frequency of your sessions are flexible according to your dog’s progress. 1-1 dog training is suited to all dogs of any age and for the greatest success, we do recommend a minimum of three sessions.

Note: there is a difference between dog training and behaviour services and how we can support you.  To understand these differences, click here.  Hence, if you are experiencing a number of pet problems or extreme behaviours, we recommend you have a look at a programme of behaviour modification with our dog behaviour consultation process. You can find out more about this by visiting our Consults page.  Alternatively, Hanne provides one hour virtual troubleshooting slots to help owners receive remedial advice which they can get going.

Case study: Bailey

Psychotherapist Karen and family welcomed Labradoodle puppy Bailey into their lives in Hertfordshire, and planned to train her as a therapy dog working with children with behavioural disorders. While researching the specific positive reinforcement training she was looking for, Karen came across Hanne’s name, engaging her services because of Hanne had the professional standards, knowledge and experience needed to train both herself and Bailey to prepare them for their accreditation training. Karen describes Hanne as ‘outstanding’ and values her dedication to the job. The following is reported by the client, Karen.

“Hanne is incredibly responsive and organised. You have a full training session and during that hour you’re concentrating hard on Bailey’s behaviour, so it’s very reassuring to immediately receive all the detailed follow up notes and videos. Her methods are current and backed up with all the latest research. Her attention to detail is amazing.

She really does know what she’s talking about. I would love to work professionally with Hanne.”

Interested in 1-1 Training?

Hanne is incredibly knowledgeable and skilled…her 1-1 course has been fantastic for our situation and our puppy is responding to it so well. I honestly don’t know what I would of done without her support. Thank you so much.

Rachael Warner

Had a fantastic session with Hanne today – she really knows her stuff. She had our foster dog – and us – sussed in 5 minutes! So many helpful tips, easy-reference handouts and practical demos. Felt very inspired and highly recommend.

Clare Clarke

Hanne is amazing. Her advice has transformed our relationship with our boisterous Labrador.
