Why Choose Canine to Five for Overnight Dog Boarding?



Going out of town and need a place for your dog to stay overnight? Canine To Five offers overnight dog boarding in Detroit, Ferndale, and Commerce Township, MI. Whether you’re just heading out for the weekend, or planning a holiday getaway, our dog boarding facilities are much more fun than a traditional dog kennel!

Dogs who stay overnight with Canine To Five are placed in doggy daycare during the day! Whether they are approved for Group Play in our pack-style environment, or Pawsitive Enrichment receiving individualized care, they’ll be spending their days getting exercise, enrichment, and companionship, before settling into their spacious, private enclosures at night. Unlike other boarding facilities, Canine To Five does not use metal crates for overnight boarding.


Pricing & Reservations

If you know what dates you’ll need care, we recommend booking your reservations a month in advance to ensure your pup will have a clean, safe, and fun place to stay while you’re away. Canine To Five requires a 50% deposit to hold your reservation during Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. Reservations canceled with less than 48 hours notice will not be eligible to have their deposit refunded. We also charge peak rates during busy boarding times to accommodate the extra staff needed to care for extra pups.

Two of our core beliefs at Canine To Five are that we care and we are flexible, so if you do have a last minute boarding emergency, give us a call and we will do our best to accommodate your needs!

Our Pack Leaders Are Onsite Overnight

Each guest enclosure has its own raised bed, water available at all times, and enough room to walk around. Our boarding facility is ventilated and climate controlled to provide a comfortable temperature for sleeping. Relaxing music is played to create a peaceful environment for our furry guests. Our overnight Pack Leader monitors each guest to ensure a good night’s sleep.

High Standard of Care

We have a very high level of monitoring throughout your dog’s stay. Each meal is tracked as appetite is sometimes a challenge for pups being away from home. If your dog takes prescribed medication and is cleared by your veterinarian to stay in a dog boarding facility, our trained team will happily administer your pup’s medication at no additional cost, and will track each administration daily. Please note, we do not accept life sustaining medications. If your dog has a special diet, let us know and we can accommodate any reasonable request. Let us know how we can prepare food the same way you do at home!



Activities, Games, and Play

Our Pawsitive Enrichment Boarding guests get ample rest in their enclosures and will be taken outside three times a day as a standard, plus given three enrichment sessions during each day! Enrichment activities may include treadmill sessions, food puzzles, playing in the pool, or even playdates with other four-legged friends.

Dogs that have passed their daycare evaluation are able to be part of our Group Play Boarding. During the day they get to play, socialize, and make new friends in our indoor and outdoor play yards! Dogs are separated into groups based on their age, size, personality, and play style. This full day of play ensures a restful night sleep in a private enclosure.

Keeping in Touch

While your dog is boarding with us, you can view photos of them in our Pet Parents Facebook Group and watch them on our complimentary live webcams. If our team notices anything abnormal during your pup’s stay, we’ll shoot you a text message and keep you in the loop. Pet parents who add on the VIP Overnight Package can take advantage of text message pupdates where our team will send photos and updates via text each day you’re signed up to receive them. You are welcome to call any of our open hours for an update on your pup!
