Daren Hamlin, Owner and Certified Dog Trainer
He started schooling in 1996 at the New England K-9 Academy. With two and a half years of schooling Daren graduated with honors in search and rescue, obedience, tracking and personal protection.
Daren worked at this facility for 2 years furthering his education and hands on experience.
Daren proceeded to establish a kennel in Vermont-New England Kingston K-9 Academy. There he bred and trained a number of dogs, specializing in Dobermans, Mastiffs, German Shepherds, Rottweilers, Labradors and Jack Russell Terriers.
Daren moved to Atlanta in 2003 and started a mobile training business, 911 K-9 Academy. Daren specialized in problem dogs and training people how to properly handle their dogs. The mobile training business was very successful, but it was not until 2008 that Daren’s dream was finally realized, that being the owner of a boarding, training, and grooming facility.
This dream became the Five Star Dog Resort!
