Chapter One Dog Training

Only The Best For Your Best Friend

All dogs and puppies require some degree of training so they can stay safe, healthy and form a great relationship with their owners.

At Chapter One Dog Training, we help good dogs become great ones by providing essential training and doggy life skills.

Our teaching is thorough and diverse so that your pet has a number of opportunities to learn. We use reward-based strategies as well as games so your pet isn’t constantly looking for a treat from you.

Start with puppy pre-school or enrol for adult behavioural training to remind your dog how to be its best self.

Your Dog Trainer

Meet Hannah

Training dogs has been my passion for over ten years, ever since my family brought home Cody the Shetland Sheepdog and we formed an incredible bond.

I loved teaching Cody how to sit, stay, come and respond to my commands. After working daily on his skills, I noticed how much more harmonious family life was with a pet who found it easy to understand what we needed from him. Cody and I progressed to dog sports and had a wonderful time mastering new tricks as a team.

Since then, I have added Harper the Border Collie and Saffron, aka ‘Saffy’ the Australian Shepherd to my little pack, furthering my puppy training know-how with each experience. I have always enjoyed training active working dog breeds and puppies although I often train smaller breeds (who doesn’t love a tiny fluff ball after all?).

About Us - Hanna and puppy
Dogs have always been part of my life and my work. I compliment my hands-on experience with seminars and online courses from industry leaders. This helps me to provide a more well-rounded understanding and up-to-date approach of the animals I work with each day.

After applying what I have learned time and time again, and working for other dog training organisations, it made sense to create a business of my own.

The way I see it, you and your dog are a partnership and you work best when you really understand each other. As Founder of Chapter One Dog Training, I am motivated to offer high quality training so that you have a well-mannered family pet who brings you endless joy.

Why ‘Chapter One’?

The name Chapter One is inspired by the fact that it will make a huge difference to your puppy’s life if you begin training as early as possible.

We start with a blank page so bad habits don’t have the chance to form!

However, dog training can start at any age and it’s definitely not true that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks!

Client Testimonials

Chapter One’s private lessons and group classes have been extremely valuable to our dog. Hannah's love for animals and passion for helping owners shines through in her tailored programs and gentle approach to educating. We will continue to use Chapter One for all of our training needs and we highly recommend Chapter One for those with specific behavioural concerns or needing general training for their dogs

Danielle, Drew & Tucker

I would 100% recommend Hannah if you are looking to train up your furry friend. My partner and I came across Hannah’s page on Facebook and were instantly attracted by the content and information she was providing. Her classes have been a dream for our pup Ralph and we’ve learnt things as doggie parents that they just don’t teach anywhere else! Not only was she super helpful and informative but she’s down to earth and genuinely wants the best for your dog! The lessons she’s taught us as doggie parents has made our ability to train our dog with love and trust so special and simple!
