Five Rings Dog Training, a family business, began almost a decade ago. 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 after that, we expanded again, opening Five Rings Daycare in Hanover. Though we have grown in size, our mission remains the same: To offer quality pet care and training at a fair price. We treat each animal as an individual. Every dog has their own strengths, weaknesses and needs. When your dog is with us they are treated like family. That's what we'd want for our dogs and we believe it's what your dog deserves, as well.

'When the world around me is going crazy, and I'm losing faith in humanity, I just have to take one look at my dog to know that
GOOD STILL EXISTS.'
" HE IS YOUR FRIEND, YOUR PARTNER, YOUR DEFENDER, YOUR DOG. YOU ARE HIS LIFE, HIS LOVE, HIS LEADER. HE WILL BE YOURS, FAITHFUL AND TRUE, TO THE LAST BEAT OF HIS HEART. YOU OWE IT TO HIM, TO BE WORTHY OF THE DEVOTION."
