I am so happy to have find this service! With an 8 month old puppy I was worried about going away and leaving him anywhere but right from the very start Chris put my mind at ease and answered all my questions. Straight away we were introduced to the brilliant couple, Ian & Odette, who were more than happy to maintain all aspects of our dog's routine (even making room in their freezer for his food!) He had such a brilliant time (literally running off to play as soon as we dropped him off) that I've already booked him in again. I wouldn't dream of using anywhere else now and most definitely would recommend to any one who doesn't like the idea of kennels. Brill service and great value for money to keep your dog happy so you can actually enjoy yourself while you're away!

I have used Petstay twice. Previously i have put my dog, Clarrie, into kennels which she appears to be happy in but, when it could not take her last year, I thought that I would try Petstay. Although it is more expensive than kennels the service is excellent. We met the carers to make sure we were happy with them and they were happy with Clarrie. She has stayed with them twice and is very happy with them. Similarly they clearly love having her. They have a comfortable warm house with a big secure garden and are near good country walks. I feel much happier that she is in a normal home and not a kennel cage. I would recommend this service to anyone.

Daisy loved her holiday with Chris and Sue. Really pleased with the care and good fun she had. I am confident with the strong control she received too. The holiday was arranged at short notice but PetStay Chris was quick and very efficient. Many thanks.

I have a rescue dog who is extremely sensitive to changes in his environment. He hates being away from us so kennels are not an option. I was so impressed with how well paired we were and the team found the perfect pet sitters for our time away. I can’t rate the service highly enough. Very glad my neighbour with a sensitive spaniel recommended them!

We have really valued the service provided by petstay... They provided a personalised friendly service allowing us the assurance that our puppy was in good hands while we were away. We met our host family and had the chance to see how our dog got on with them. We also exchanged WhatsApp messages while we were away which was fun!
Altogether a great service!

Cannot recommend Phil and Sue highly enough. My dogs Charlie and Holly loved their time with them. Very friendly couple. Would not hesitate using them again. Thank you Sue and Phil for making our time away relaxing and enjoyable knowing they were both in such good hands. Definitely highly recommend

Our petstay sitter is fantastic, Roo is always happy when we leave her, and content, she is well exercised and has lots of fuss too.
Very good communication from the Margaret whilst we are on holiday.
We would definitely recommend Pet stay as we were given the perfect sitter for our dogs needs.

We found Pet stay Derby via a recommendation. After speaking to chris for information we were more than assured and happy to procide onto the next step which was to meet Phil and Sue who our treasured Harley would be boarding with. A fantastic couple! Harley took to them straight away which made us happy. Harley stayed for five days. He was well loved aand looked after. Regular texts and photos too. Would not send harley anywhere else now. Thank you!

We were worried about our 13 year old labrador being away from us for over a week, but our concerns were groundless. Our own dog routines were adopted by Ian and Odette, and our dog was clearly very happy in their care. Regular updates and photographs calmed our nerves while away! The Petstay booking experience/administration was efficient and painless. We will definitely be returning customers.

Chris and Sue who had my two dogs are the loveliest people. I felt confident leaving my dogs in their care and they listened carefully to their normal routines etc and tried to replicate these as much as possible. They sent me messages and photos whilst I was away so I felt reassured that all was well. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking for an alternative to kennels.

Our dog Daisy had her first holiday with Paul and Pat and had a great time. They updated me by text that she had settled in really quickly so I felt reassured that Daisy was happy. Paul and Pat were happy to follow Daisy's normal routine.
I've used Petstay several times now with some different carers due to availability. All the carers have been excellent. For a few pounds more than kennels Daisy gets one to one, home from home care, so she gets a real holiday as well as me!

We left our dogs for the week knowing they were in a lovely home. Our dogs are still young and it was important to us that their boundaries remained in our absence. We will definitely use petstay again a much better option for our dogs than the kennels.

We were very apprehensive about where our young Puppy would go whilst we were on holiday, he was only 5 months old & Kennels seemed to bleak & austere for such a young dog!
Petstay were great, Paddy went to Stay with Liz & Alan- & Sketch - & he had a great time, going on adventures with Sketch!
We got photos & updates every couple of days & he looked very happy.
We have rebooked already for our next Holiday in July, we can go on holiday assured he is being well looked after. Thankyou

From the initial contact with Chris, to picking Barney up from Odette and Ian, this was a terrific first experience with Petstay. We will NEVER use our local kennels again - it was more like a doggie Colditz.
We boarded Barney from March 8th to 15th and, though he cried a little when we left him, he soon settled in. We received text updates from Odette throughout our holiday, and Barney was fast asleep on the sofa when we went to pick him up.
We heartily recommend the Petstay experience. The small increase in fees over kennels is more than compensated for by the quality of the service. We will not hesitate to have Barney stay with Odette and Ian again.

Our 9 year old Cavalier Spaniel "Ollie" is a very adaptable dog, but we could tell when we picked him up from kennels he hadn't liked the experience much - he would cry loudly on collection and couldn't get away fast enough. Petstay was recommended to us by another Cavalier owner, so we thought we'd give it a try. It wasn't a lot more than kennels but the difference for Ollie was obvious when we collected him - he was pleased to see us but he was calm and didn't seem so desperate to come home like before. We don't feel guilty about going away without him anymore as we know he's having a lovely time at his home from home with Liz and her family. Highly recommended.

Beans our 2 year old Cockerpoo really enjoyed his stay with Wendy, Robert and their family. Beans loved playing with their two dogs Poppy and Toby. It was a home from home. Wendy was great at keeping me up to date with what Beans had been up to while we were away so I had peace of mind. We would definitely send Beans for a stay with Wendy and Robert again.

We are both so grateful to Margaret and Phil for looking after Kenzo so well. We had complete peace of mind while we were away and could see that both Margaret and Phil adore our pup as much as we love him. Margaret and Phil were both professional, helpful and very caring towards us and Kenzo - we would definitely be happy to have them look after our little fur ball again. :)

Alfie our 9 year old poodle/border terrier cross stayed with Lorna and Mike while we went on holiday abroad. Alfie is by nature a very anxious little dog who hates being left alone so understandably we were keen to make sure that he was matched with the right people. Chris seemed to understand what we were looking for and we needn't have worried, as soon as we met Lorna and Mike we knew Alfie would be fine. They clearly love dogs and Alfie seemed very comfortable in their home. It was fantastic to be able to go on holiday feeling that he would be looked after in the same way that we do. I would have no hesitation in recommending PetStay Derby and will be using them again.

Cassie stayed with Chris, Mark and the fabulous Audrey while we went for a few days abroad. Cassie is an 11month old cocker spaniel and we wanted her to stay somewhere she would be looked after as we look after her at home. Chris let us know exactly what we needed to bring, we met up to make sure Cassie would be comfortable and although I was apprehensive about leaving Cassie for a few days for the first time, I was reassured that she would be well looked after by people who obviously love dogs. Whilst away Chris sent us photos of Cassie - something which became a highlight of our youngest son's holiday! When the time came to collect her we could see she had been well cared for and she obviously felt very comfortable with Chris. I would have no hesitation in recommending PetStay Derby and will be using them again.

My dog Ted (German Pointer) recently stayed with a family at Barrow - I have to say we were thrilled to bits. He was treated like a member of the family, and settled in incredibly well - he got on famously with the owners 2 dogs. We were sent regular text messages and photos of him out on walks and he seemed to be having a wonderful time. I could immediately tell when i picked him that he had a great time, he was almost reluctant to leave! Absolutely no hesitations in reccommending.
