Free-Play Dog Boarding in Metro Detroit

Our facility raises the fun factor for dog boarding in Ferndale, Royal Oak, and surrounding cities. Dogs that board 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.

Dogs that board with us must meet the same requirements as our daycare dogs for the pack’s health and safety. To be eligible for dog boarding at Canine to Five, your dog must:

  • Complete a “First Day” evaluation at least two weeks before your boarding reservation
  • 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 now offer a Private Play Dog Lodging option at our Ferndale location for dogs that either don’t meet our pack-style daycare requirements or simply are more comfortable with one-on-one time spent with human handlers. Visit our Private Play Dog Lodging page to learn more.
