Assuming that all five houses are in a row and that "to the left of" means "immediately to the left of":
Spoiler:
Start with clues 5, 14, and 18. Follow with 3, 11, 20, and 22. (Fill in fifth name.) Next 1+15, 7+17, 10, and 16. Next 9 and 21. (Fill in fifth car.) Then 12 and 19. (Fill in fifth favorite color.) Now it gets a little tricky, but notice that if Smith were the rabbit owner, 4 would make John the doctor, and 8 would require Paul to be the fish owner while 13 would require him to be a pigeon owner; so Smith is not the rabbit owner and we can apply 2. (Fill in fifth flavor.) Then 6 and 13. (Fill in fifth house color.) Then 4. (Fill in fifth occupation.) Then 4 and 8.

The result, from left to right, is:
1. Paul drives a Ford, owns a dog, likes yellow, lives in an orange house, is an accountant, and likes vanilla.
2. Smith drives a Nissan, owns a cat, likes red, lives in a blue house, is a doctor, and likes strawberry.
3. Alan drives a Toyota, owns a fish, likes green, lives in a yellow house, is a manager, and likes banana.
4. John drives a Hyundai, owns a pigeon, likes blue, lives in a white house, is a teacher, and likes chocolate.
5. Will drives a Honda, owns a rabbit, likes white, lives in a red house, is a shopper, and likes caramel.
