Living Magazines Hanne Grice and Dylan

The Best Businesswomen Awards have announced their finalists for 2023, all fantastic examples of exemplary female entrepreneurs.

The business climate has continued to test the resilience of entrepreneurs, and these determined women have continued to drive their businesses forwards.

The judging panel was impressed by the creativity, tenacity and excellent business acumen demonstrated in the selected finalists. The Best Businesswomen Awards are designed to recognise the achievement of female entrepreneurs from a wide range of industries. All of whom are excelling in their chosen field.

Local businesswoman Hanne Grice from Hanne Grice Pet Behaviour & Training has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Best Customer Service, and Best Animal Services categories. Hanne Grice is a Clinical Animal Behaviourist, Training Instructor, published author, educationalist and founder of the award-winning pet behaviour company Hanne Grice Pet Training & Behaviour.

Hanne launched the business in 2006, and has since helped several thousand furry clients and has worked with famous faces from the world of sport, film and entertainment. Hanne has won a number of awards over the years for her work and has represented female entrepreneurs presenting in front of Ministers and government bodies. She is the author of Playing With Your Dog, and contributes to a number of printed and online publications sharing advice on canine, feline and small animal behaviour. Hanne works with all breeds of dogs, cats and other small animals, helping with all sorts of problem behaviours with a calm, positive training approach. She runs a Puppy & Dog School in Hertfordshire, and provides both in-person and virtual training and behaviour services, as well as lecturing for educational organisations. Hanne sits on the Board of Trustees for the Animal Behaviour and Training Council (ABTC), and is a full member and assessor for the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC).

Hanne Grice said: ‘I am thrilled to have been selected as a Finalist. It has been a particularly challenging few years, what with the pandemic puppy boom, and the general rise in pet ownership across species, which has led to a significant rise in problem pet behaviours overall. To be recognised for service excellence in general, as well as in the field of animal services, is simply awesome.’

The Gala Final will be held at the Hilton Wembley on 22 September 2023, where the Gold Winners of each category will be announced.
