Canine to Five will move to a bigger Ferndale location


Have you noticed a Canine to Five sign in front of an old brick building on Nine Mile Road? We've spied the bright orange marquee on our travels down the road and wondered what new things were in the works for the doggy daycare.

Well, it turns out the popular local business is expanding, moving from their old digs on Hilton Road. Just two years after opening their first Ferndale location, owner Liz Blondy says the new building will offer more services, like a special lounge for senior dogs and dogs with special needs.

The new location will have four indoor playrooms and a larger outdoor play area, according to a release. 

While Canine to Five focuses on "pack-style all-day play," the new facility will also be able to cater to dogs that don't thrive in that environment.

Also, look at these cute dogs.
