If you're looking for Fairfield County dog training that is convenient to your busy schedule, we highly recommend that you check out our Private Training Lessons. We bring the training to your doorstep at a time that is convenient for you. Weeknights or weekends, we're flexible and will find a time that works best. In these lessons, we will take the time to carefully evaluate your dog and devise a plan that is custom to your situation. This plan will be shared with you and updated after each lesson so that you can follow along, as well as track your dog's progress from week to week.
*Price does not include the cost of a Herm Sprenger Prong Collar ($30) & Mini Educator E-Collar ($180-$220 depending on your dog's size). We can order these on your behalf and add to an invoice.
Board and Train
Board and Trains differ from Private Training Lessons in that they are a true lifestyle change for your dog. In a nutshell, a Board and Train program tackles some of the most extreme dog behavior issues head on, providing to you reliable, long-lasting results for years to come. Your dog boards with us and we train them consistently each day. Not to mention, we treat them like kings and queens while they stay with us. They are constantly monitored and attended to. This includes routine daily exercise and maintenance of hygiene such as grooming, bathing and nail cutting.
If you're looking for a Fairfield County dog trainer that can take your dog in, this is the training service for you.
For those of you not in the Fairfield County area, we routinely do Online Training courses to help any dog owner, near and far. These dog training lessons can be done via an online video conferencing provider that you're most comfortable with or even FaceTime! Once you sign up to one of these lessons, we make ourselves available to you each step of the way and you're given access to a custom plan that we build specific to the goals that you have for your dog.
"Nick has been a huge help with my Bernese Mountain who had become territorial with people coming into our yard or house. Nick came to do training at our house and was always patient and clear in his explanations. He also followed up every lesson with emails detailing what we had gone over that day, which was incredibly helpful. In between lessons, he followed up on my questions in a professional and timely basis. Nick obviously knows dogs and their behavior very well but also has the ability to communicate well with human beings... I highly recommend!"

"Working with Nick has been such a wonderful experience. I had been working with another trainer before finding Hope Gables and was not thrilled with the results I was seeing - my Golden still pulled like a sled dog, didn't come when called, and jumped on everyone who walked through the door. After just a few months of working with Nick, she has stopped pulling completely, comes whenever she is called, and rarely jumps up. Now we are working on solidifying these skills in high distraction situations - something I honestly never thought I could get her to do."
