Dog Boarding

Our facility raises the fun factor for dog boarding in the Detroit and Ferndale areas. Dogs that stay with us play in our dog daycare all day, so it’s like they get a vacation of their own! At night, your dog is kept company by an on-site, trained dog handler so your dog is never left alone. It’s just one of the many ways we care for your dog so you can enjoy your time away even more.

Group Play Dog Boarding

Dogs that board in our group play environment must meet the same requirements as our daycare dogs for the pack’s health and safety.

To be eligible for group play dog boarding at Canine to Five, your dog must:

  • Complete a “First Day” evaluation at least two weeks prior to your boarding reservation.
  • Have attended daycare or boarding at Canine to Five within the past 6 months.
  • Have a reservation – boarding space is limited.

This ensures the safety and comfort of your dog, along with our handlers, while you are traveling. Once you’re home, your dog will be ecstatic to see you and completely exhausted from all the playing. It’s dog boarding, without your dog being “bored.”

We offer three levels of Dog Boarding at Canine to Five to allow you to choose a lodging experience for your dog that is as close to home as possible.

Private-Play Dog Boarding

At Canine to Five, we strive to offer quality services that are uniquely tailored to your dog's individual needs and comfort. That’s why we’ve developed our Private Play Dog Boarding service, available to dogs that either don’t meet the requirements of our pack-style open play Dog Daycare or are simply more comfortable with one-on-one play and socialization with humans.

Our Private Play Dog Lodging option brings the best in dog services to every dog and their individual needs.

We didn't think boarding would ever be an option for our dog, as pack play is too much for him. Called Canine to Five to see if limiting playtime would be an option. Turns out, they have several different areas for dogs of different sizes and activity levels, including a special lounge for senior/special needs dogs! We just did a first day evaluation, and the staff were so caring and accommodating. They really know their stuff—they placed our pup where he would do best, and he had a great first day. He clearly loved it there! When it was time to go home, he didn't want to leave. Any concerns we had about boarding are gone, and we are excited to take him back.
