ABOUT ME

My name is Sarah Frohock. I've been a dog lover my entire life. As a young child my first thought was to be a Veterinarian, but that was because I had no idea the job as Dog Trainer existed.  

My first involvement with training started over 15 years ago when my dog Nacoma showed some major behavior issues.  I worked with a trainer to help him become a better dog and for me to become a MUCH better owner! 

From there my love of dog training evolved. I read every book I could and was certified as a Dog Trainer by Mike Robertson of Plymouth, NH.  I continue my experience and growth by attending seminars and working with my students.  

My love for training had evolved even farther with the love of Dog Sports. I love competition and I love the teamwork and relationship you build with working with your best friend.

AKC CANINE GOOD CITIZEN

The CGC Program teaches good manners to dogs and responsible dog ownership to their owners. The 10-step Canine Good Citizen test is a non-competitive test for all dogs, including purebreds and mixed breeds. The CGC award is a prerequisite for many therapy dog groups. Some homeowner’s insurance companies are encouraging CGC testing, and an increasing number of apartments and condos require that resident dogs pass the CGC test. The CGC Program also includes the AKC CGC℠ Responsible Dog Owner Pledge.

During the Spring, Summer and Fall I offer E Collar class. During the winter Private lessons are offered.  E collar creates a clear communication between you and the dog, creating the BEST recall and even an OFF LEASH heeling dog.

COMPETITION RALLY CLASS

AKC Rally® is all about teamwork. You and your dog navigate a course together, side-by-side, at your own brisk pace. You move him through a course with signs where he performs different exercises. The courses are designed by the Rally judge (10-20 signs per course, depending on the class level) that include various turns and commands such as sit, down, stay, etc.

Unlimited communication from the handler to the dog is to be encouraged and not penalized. While touching isn’t allowed, you can use verbal commands, clap your hands, pat your legs and use hand signals to praise and encourage your dog.

Scoring in Rally is less rigorous than in other competitions like traditional obedience or agility. You begin with a perfect score of 100, with points deducted along with way. If you retain a score of at least 70 points, you will qualify toward earning a title. As you qualify the required number of times, you will move onto the next level.

Space is limited in these classes.

CONFORMATION CLASS

The official term for dog shows is conformation — as in, the act of conforming or producing conformity. While a dog show may look like a beauty pageant, it’s not. Dogs are not being compared to each other; they’re being measured by how closely they conform to the standard of their particular breed. Why? Because the closer a dog’s appearance is to the breed’s standard, the better that dog’s ability will be to produce puppies that meet the standard. It’s also the reason why mixed breeds and spayed or neutered purebreds are ineligible to compete in conformation.

As one of the most popular AKC events, conformation events range from large all-breedshows, with over 3,000 dogs entered, to small local specialty club shows that feature only one breed.

Abby Benner is our instructor on Wednesday nights.  Abby's knowledge and experience gets you RING READY!!

TESTIMONIALS

"I enrolled in my 1st class at Sarah’s Courteous Canines when Bella was four months old. Her class was so much fun! Sarah clearly loves what she does and is truly a ‘dog whisperer’. She explained the different dog behaviors exhibited in the class and how best to correct them…techniques I still use today.

Bella passed her CGC certification later the following year. We continue to work on the ‘drills’ Sarah taught us. I enthusiastically recommend her class to my friends with dogs (old or new) and look forward to the day that I have another dog to train."

Today Bella is three years old and I never have to worry about having her out in public or having her off-leash. I credit her behavior to the excellent training she received at Sarah’s Courteous Canines.

"Good morning, I want you to know that the work we did last weekend was successful. Ryan and I have just gotten back from an hour and a half walk. We took our regular road route, but then were adventurous and headed down to the conservation trails along the Ossipee River. He was the best! A couple of times he ran off after a squirrel or something, but within 50 ft would slow down, I'd whistle, and back he'd come. Once he went down and put his feet in the river and I'll allow more of that this summer. We got back about 7 minutes ago. He went to the water bowl, took a long drink and then took himself to the crate for a nap. Thank you!"

My husband and I rescued our corgi mix, Nessie, just over a year ago. She had already been adopted and returned once because she had anxiety issues, so we were determined to make this match work. We are so in love with our little pup, but we definitely needed some help. Through a friend we were put in touch with Sarah, and it’s been the best step we’ve made since getting Nessie. Sarah came over to our house and met our dog, my husband, and I. We wanted to sign up for classes, but were nervous how Nessie would react with other dogs, so she walked us through what classes would be like and prepared us. We are currently in our third round of classes now, and in every one Sarah has tailored the class to meet Nessie’s specific needs. She empowers us to work with our dog outside of class to become a better partnership, and she helps us to understand Our dog. Since we’ve been working with Sarah, Nessie has become more obedient and confident in herself and in us.

We highly recommend Sarah Frohock and Sarah’s Courteous Canine, to anyone and everyone. There is always something to work on, whether your dog is well behaved or not, and our dog loves coming to class every week.

~Kristen Soule~

As a dog lover that adopted a dog that was deemed “vicious and dangerous” I can say that having Sarah guide me through training of said dog was a game-changer. We took two-back to back group classes with Sarah and had her to our home for a personal session. Her advice, guidance, and positivity helped guide our adopted dog into society after being at a shelter for eighteen months. It was hard work but persistence paid off. Sarah was available via messaging and email for quick consultations as well.

It is apparent that Sarah loves dogs and has a passion for her client’s dogs because she wants them to excel in training and life skills. Sarah’s commitment in her own dogs is so clearly obvious as I see post after social media post of her hiking and playing with them.

Having Sarah as a dog trainer for an “easy” dog or a more challenging dog is a good choice. She really cares, and dogs listen to her!

~Julie Fergus~

"Sarah is a professional, knowledgeable and very caring dog trainer. She understands that the needs of each dog and their owner are very individual. I have worked with Sarah in both private and group lessons with my very shy, fearful and reactive 11 month old pup Gracie. Through her guidance and training she has given both Gracie and I the skills and "tools" to help Gracie become more confident and relaxed in many different environments and situations. I can now take Gracie for walks in town and people will comment on how well behaved she is! Sarah's methods of training demonstrate enthusiasm, encouragement and patience. I am truly grateful for all her help and would highly recommend her as a trainer. Thank you Sarah!"

~Heather Boucher~

I am excited to recommend Sarah Frohock, owner of Sarah's Courteous Canines, to all dog owners who would like to have a well-behaved canine companion. The first time I took my Oscar was when Sarah first started doing training. He loved going to school, learning and meeting other dogs. He was engaged and so happy to be in "school". We began to repeat the course as it became such fun for us together. Eventually Sarah suggested we ramp it up a notch and take the Canine Good Citizen course. My deaf dog succeeded and is now a good citizen-all due to Sarah. We now go at least once a year for fun and as a refresher. I've seen such good progress in dogs who have attended classes. Solutions to behavior problems are found and implemented. Happy dogs and happy owners. Such a blessing for us all."
