Canine To Five, a Detroit-based dog boarding, grooming, and daycare company, will open the expansion of its 10,000-square-foot, $1.3-million location on Monday, March 25 at 3443 Cass in Detroit’s Midtown neighborhood. The company has two locations.
The new facility will use 7,000 square feet, and 3,000 square feet will be leased to other tenants. It will be able to house 175 dogs a day, up from 120, and will include rooms for senior dogs, private play, and small dogs. The grooming section will have its own entrance.
Canine To Five was founded in 2005. Its Ferndale location is 22,000 square feet.
“I am so grateful to my clients who trust us to take care of their beloved pets every day,” says Liz Blondy, owner. “As a small-business owner, it is really important to me to listen to my customers. We have grown with their needs over the past 14 years. It’s important to build a community of dog lovers in Detroit. That’s why we launched Drinking with Dogs and our weekly Pack Walks. We don’t make any money off these activities, but our clients love getting to know one another.”
The new season of Drinking with Dogs kicks off May 28 at The Skip, and the Pack Walks leave at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday from Cullen Park.
Public tours of the new space are available 6-9 p.m. Tuesday, March 26 and Thursday, March 28, as well as 10 a.m.-noon Saturday, March 30.
Canine To Five’s temporary Detroit location at 892 W. Baltimore will close now that the renovation is complete.
Detroit’s D MET was the architect, and The Monahan Co. in Eastpointe managed the construction.
Canine To Five also offers training classes through K-9 Turbo Training.
