Who we are


We started Five Rings Dog Training a few years ago as a family business. Our goal was to have a part time second job that our family could do together.  After a few years we were able to expand and offer boarding and day care at Five Rings Pet Resort. A few years later we expanded again opening Five Rings Daycare in Hanover. Though we have grown our mission remains the same, offer quality pet care and training ​at a fair price. We treat each animal as an individual. Every dog has there own strengths, weaknesses and needs. When your dog is with us they are treated like family.
