Tiny Town

Tiny Town is Canine to Five's unique dog daycare and boarding option designed for dogs 30 lbs and under. It has its own dedicated indoor/outdoor play areas, and is staffed with team members who know and love the little guys. It’s the perfect community for your small dog.

Why is Tiny Town good for my small dog?

Everything at Tiny Town has been created with the needs of small dogs in mind.

They have their own space! They aren’t sharing with the big guys. They have playmates that are the same size as they are, and the toys and playscape equipment are scaled to their size. This makes it easier for them to play longer and get the most out of their daycare experience

Our staff is trained to know the needs of small dogs. Plus with the smaller space they will be able to get down and do more cuddling and playing , which little dogs love!

Tiny Town also has small dog boarding! All the same consideration has been given to making the Tiny Town boarding experience just as special as the Tiny Town daycare experience.

Private Play Daycare

Group play dog daycare isn’t the best fit for all dogs, but all dogs deserve the benefits of socialization and a safe place to go while their owners are away. That’s why Canine to Five has developed a unique service, available at our Midtown and Ferndale locations, to meet the needs of dogs that need a little more one-on-one time for their comfort, or don’t meet our group play requirements.

So Every Dog Can Enjoy Canine To Five Dog Daycare

Introducing Private Play Daycare. It’s the perfect solution for pet parents that need a little extra help watching their dog during the day or on specific occasions, without exposing their dog to our pack-style group play that may not fit the dog’s comfort level. Our Private Play Dog daycare option brings the best in dog services to every dog and their individual needs.


  • Three potty breaks throughout the day.
  • Plenty of one-on-one time playing and cuddling with one of our Pack Leaders.
  • A comfy-sized enclosure all to themselves for naps and periodic rest.

Senior Lounge

From one of our dog daycare clients...


The best daycare in town! Their staff are highly trained and professional, and their facilities are clean, and the dogs’ well-being is their top priority. It’s great to know she’s in good hands to get some exercise and pack time in while we off at work or on vacation. We refuse to take our dog anywhere else! The staff are kind, friendly and love Marnie as their own!
