Would you go on vacation and spend all your time cooped up in your hotel room? Of course not. Where’s the fun in that? So why make your dog do it?
Dog Boarding at Canine to Five in Detroit is like a vacation for your dog! Every dog that boards with us has access to our dog daycare during the day, so they romp around our indoor and outdoor play areas completely with playscapes, pools, and a bunch of dog friends.
It’s part of what makes dog boarding at Canine to Five so unique, and a fantastic alternative to traditional kennel boarding where dogs are let out a few times a day for bathroom breaks and a possibly a little exercise. After a day in our daycare playing with other dogs and our professional handlers, every dog is ready for a good night’s sleep.
But don’t take our word for it. Just ask Izzy! Izzy came to stay recently and volunteered to share her experience. Check it out below, and then learn more about our dog boarding services.
I’m an old pro at this, so I sit patiently waiting to be invited in. I always board at Canine to Five Detroit when my humans… … you know what? I have no clue what they do while I’m at Canine to Five. They must be really board without me.
There are a bunch of very nice spots to lounge and catch some rays in the huge play yard. We get to run around this thing all day. It’s a blast!
I gotta remember to flip so I sun evenly. Besides… this gives me a great view of all my dog friends playing. The only thing I’m missing is a water bowl with a little umbrella.
There’s a bunch of cool stuff for us to climb and play on. Easy does it… carefully…
I love that I can sleep in the bed when I board at Canine to Five. Kennels aren’t my thing. Some dogs like it, so every dog gets their pick. The bed is a popular one, so I claim my spot early.

Our Canine to Five Handlers do treat circles with us throughout the day to work on our balance as a group, but meal time is MY time!
I DID IT!
Shhhh… I’m going to surprise my Canine to Five human.
