ype your paragraph here.
Bear came to Five Rings an out of control one and half year old stealing objects and tearing apart the house. Bear went through our board and train program and did well but when he went back to his family he proved to much to handle. Bear came back to Five Rings for more training and was set to go to Skyllers Dog and Cat Rescue for re homing. Bear worked hard and won us over becoming a permenant member of our pack. Bear has since gone on to earn his A.K.C Rally Novice title, his A.K.C good citizen title and passed his odor recognition test with the national association of k-9 scent work. Bear helps out in obiedence classes and is in charge of the excerise program for our day care.
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.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.
Our staff is made up of K-9 professionals. All of our managers are professional dog trainers and certified in pet c.p.r and first aide.
