The passion Sam has for wanting owners to get the best out of their dogs, means she has a thriving portfolio of clients who have achieved their goals and more. Life long friendships have come out of training with Sam, who has helped clients from all backgrounds, be it working dogs, competition or beloved pets.
Sam is based in Cheltenham but travels to her home county of Hampshire every Tuesday and Wednesday to enable new and regular clients to be able to get lessons with Sam and her The Strigidae Team. There is also the opportunity of organised group sessions at weekends if prebooked and deposits confirms booking.
During the days of Friday, Saturday and Sunday Sam will be providing lessons in Cheltenham.
Sam provides a wide range of opportunities regarding training. Please find below what is offered and if you have any queries, do get in touch using the contact page.
Private Sessions: If you feel a private lesson is needed for you and your dog then Sam can organise this with you. These lessons normally last about an hour dependent on dog age and ability. If needed Sam can use her own dogs in the lesson, whether it be for pet basics or trial level work. Most clients come weekly to fortnightly dependent on how home training is doing and the speed of progression.
Price: £45 a session
Group Sessions: Currently available if you have a group ready for class. The minimum group size 4 and maximum 8. Sam already has groups in Hampshire and is more than happy to provide the same in Cheltenham if you have a group ready, whether it be a friendly pet team or a group wanting to work or compete.
Time varies on size and ability of the class.
Price: £15 a handler
Home Visit: If you feel a home visit is required then Sam is happy to travel. Training for behavioural problems to high level training can both benefit from home visits. Another reason for a home visit is if you wish to use your own ground and Sam can accommodate to these requests.
