Get to know Canine to Five

A love for Detroit, entrepreneurship and dogs inspired Liz Blondy to found Canine to Five Detroit back in 2005. Now, years later, Canine to Five has become a staple in Detroit Culture and, through its commitment to dogs and their owners, has grown to include a second location in Ferndale. It’s where dogs go to have fun, but also learn socialization skills that will last them their entire life and burn energy through play and engagement.

Canine to Five is Metro Detroit’s finest dog daycare, boarding and grooming facility, located in the heart of Detroit’s Historic Midtown Neighborhood. Our close proximity to downtown, Wayne State University, the Detroit Medical Center, and several major expressways makes us an easy and convenient place for people to visit.

Dogs are welcome to play in the safe and secure facilities including 4500 sq. ft. of cage-free, indoor climate-controlled play space and 16,000 sq. ft. of secured, fenced-in, well-lit outdoor play space complete with agility obstacles and a small pool in warmer months. We also have a separate play area for puppies, small dogs and quiet time.

The safety and well-being of every dog is of the utmost importance at Canine to Five, that’s why our well-trained staff of Pack Leaders and enthusiasts adhere to strict cleaning standards helping to provide a safe and sanitary environment. And in order to provide the most socially centered indoor/outdoor environment for dogs, Canine to Five provides each dog the time and attention it deserves. The high employee-to-dog ratio and Canine to Five’s trained staff is knowledgeable in canine first aid, CPR and animal behavior.

Canine to Five helps pet owners and their dogs live a more balanced life together. Pay us a visit and see how Canine to Five can help your dog live a happier, healthier, and more balanced life.
