I was recommended to Lynette by a friend and I couldn't be happier with the service that PetStay has provided. Timby had a lovely holiday with Peter and Katy who looked after him brilliantly and sent me regular updates which is always reassuring. I would highly recommend PetStay.

Michelle and Dolly

I first came across Lynette and Pet Stay when I found her online. I had previously done something similar and really wasn’t happy when I used the service as it felt too much like a money making scheme, and much less like a service where someone who loves animals is paid to look after yours as you would like them to be looked after. So I had pretty much given up on the idea, but was really concerned as I do need to go away with work from time to time.
From the minute I saw Lynette’s photo on the website of her cuddling a gorgeous golden retriever, I knew that this was the type of company that I had been searching for. I contacted her and explained that I had a very large, very bouncy labradoodle and could I meet some of her pet carers. Lynette is friendly, helpful and incredibly accommodating. She immediately sent me a list of some carers, suitable for Dolly Doodle, and suggested I picked a couple out so I could go and meet them, with Dolly….and see what we all thought. That was nearly a year ago, and Pet Stay and Lynette are like my right hand (or should that be ‘paw’) for when I go away. In fact I plan around their availability. I met two sets of amazing carers, and so far have used….and stayed using….Jean. She is a true diamond. On our interview in Jean’s garden, Dolly’s collar got attached to a garden pot sculpture and Dolly panicked and tore across the beautiful green lawn upending the mud everywhere and causing chaos, the type of chaos only previously seen on Marley and Me. I held my breath…and Jean laughed, and wasn’t at all put off!! I didn’t know people like this existed!! And oddly, Dolly is pretty much a model pup in her company – and I get told off for calling her a yobbo It’s absolutely perfect. I have found someone who loves Dolly for who she is, doesn’t judge, and as a result is a fantastic influence on Dolly. Dolly behaves well with Jean, or so she tells me, which leads me to believe that Dolly is very clever as she wants to be invited back. Being matched so well with the amazing Jean, also means that you have a really positive experience as the carer already knows what your dog is like…and not only accepts it, but embraces it! It means that pick up time is not about telling me that Dolly was naughty, but just a lovely chat about what great times they have had together. And what great times indeed! Dolly now views Jean as her second home…..possibly even prefers it to her actual home! She totally adores Jean with endless loyalty, as do I, and Jean is in turn so positive about Dolly, and really resilient with Dolly’s rather exuberant greetings. Jean takes everything in her stride. She pops socks on Dolly so that her punching paws on greeting people in her home get softened somewhat….and she just thinks she is a lovely character, and I am so grateful for that. I get sent lovely update texts about their fantastic walks and the lovely companionship they are enjoying when they are together. Dolly enjoys their long walks by the canal, she accompanies her to family barbeques, out to see her friends, helps her in the garden, she enjoys meeting her grandchildren….and watching Strictly Come Dancing together by the fire. When I drop her off next week, I know she is accompanying Jean to the hairdressers on a day out which they are going on together. Dolly may possibly decide to have her hair done as well….she fancies a perm. I have been able to do so much more work trips this December as a result of this incredible care, and can be more flexible with my free time, as it is such a relief to know that Dolly is so happy with Jean, and as much as possible I try and book my calendar around her availability. If Dolly could, she would drive herself over to Jean’s and book herself in for a long weekend of quality time. Dolly is just happy to be wherever Jean is. In fact, my next suggestion to Lynette is that she offers a similar service for the humans too…..so we can go and have some overnights stays away, on a par with the level of care that Dolly gets! Lynette runs a fantastic service, and she has some truly wonderful carers on her books, all chosen by Lynette, a fellow dog owner who totally understands what it is we are looking for. On our initial meetings we also met and really loved Dave and Trina. Dolly and I have a big, big soft spot for Jean. When I pick Dolly up from Jean’s following her Pet Stay, I always feel like I am breaking up the party and Dolly comes home with a bit of a cross face that her holiday is over. Which sounds odd, but it is just what you want when you really want your pet to be happy on their stay. Jean and I stay in touch when Dolly isn’t there also, as it is a really lovely bond they have. What other business would offer such service? Use it or lose it – it’s an incredible service…..and long may it continue. Many thanks to Lynette for offering a service that feels like you have a supportive extended family that truly loves the pets they are caring for. Thank you.
