FOTY BADGE

"Hi I’m Pi and I would like to tell you about my ‘Mum’ (Jane). Before Jane had me, she looked after many different animals, but her first love is definitely for dogs. Anyway, I think this PetStay franchise is a really great idea, I have told all my friends that I meet when I am out for a walk about being able to go on their own holidays too, and they all hope that their ‘Mums and Dads’ will be in touch soon.

I think the idea of going to stay with another person in their home, and having the individual love and attention I am used to, as well as having a house and garden to roam around is much better than those kennels, (well it is certainly more chilled, comfy and civilised than some kennels I have heard about!)

So come on ‘Mum and Dad’ book me a relaxing break, and then find yourself a nice holiday – you know we all deserve it!"

Pi & his Mum Jane Elson

 Do you hate having to put your dog in kennels?… Well there is a better way!

PetStay Leicestershire is THE home-from-home alternative to kennels, they provide a safe, loving and secure home environment for your dog. All of their carers are licensed and insured, so you can relax and enjoy your holiday knowing that your dog is in safe, loving, caring hands. 

 

petstay licensed and insured

  

The PetStay service is ALL about your dog being happy in a safe and comfortable environment. Unlike kennels, your dog will live in the carer's home as one of the family, this means that their normal everyday routines can be maintained and there are plenty of safeguards in place so there is no need for cages.

 

meetbeforeyouholiday

 

Your dog will be matched with a carer best suited to their individual needs and requirements, you will then be invited to visit with the chosen carer for a 'first date' this is done before any bookings are confirmed or payments made. PetStay will only board dog(s) from the same home with a carer.

Dogs really do enjoy their PetStay holidays, and always return home happy and relaxed.

Happy Dog - Peace of Mind

Very good service. Jane is fantastic at matching the correct home for your pet to holiday at. This gives you peace of mind to be able to go away and enjoy yourself knowing your beloved dog is being cared for properly.

Very satisfied customer

PetStay is certainly The home to home stay for my dog Darls; she is my love and I need for us both to be happy when I leave her with the carers. The two carers Debbie and Hilarie have been so lovely and clearly they have loved Darls as much as me, which means a lot and reassures me she is being looked after so so well. Jane at PetStay is very efficient and always gives a exceptional service. Thank you

Home from home holiday stay

We have used petstay before but this was the first time with Angie and her family. Charlie had an amazing stay and was very well looked after. We had updates and photographs showing how much he was enjoying his happy holiday. We will certainly use Petstay in the future.

Ideal holiday home for Millie and Jake

We have used Petstay on a few occasions now for our Shetland Sheepdogs Millie and Jake and must say we are more than happy with the care they received from their carers Hilarie and most recently Sarah. Petstay is a brilliant alternative to kennels as the dogs are less stressed and live in a home environment which is perfect...! Hilarie and Sarah went out of their way to ensure that Millie and Jake were happy and content. We got regular photos and texts to let us know how they were and what they were up to as they knew how we worry. When we picked them up after the holiday they were happy and not stressed in any way which was lovely to see. The service from the initial enquiry, meeting the carer and booking the dates you need was very simple. Jane ensures that all you requirements are met and matches you with the most suitable carer. Give Petstay a try - your dog will thank you for making a brilliant choice...!

Bustas 1st holiday

Pete and I would just like to say that the pet carer Chris was absolutely superb in the way she not only looked after the welfare of our beloved dog Busta the staffy, but the peace of mind of the soppy doggy owners i.e. us lol.

She knew we would be worrying because although in excellent health, he is 12 and an old boy with puppy qualities.

Chris sent texts to us giving updates on him and how he was coping, playing, eating,resting etc.  This made our time away from him so much more enjoyable knowing that not only was he being loved he was giving love back. This is something only happy dogs will do which said everything to us. Plus ,and this was important to us, when we picked him up he was relaxed and happy and bouncy as when we left him which means he did not feel at all stressed whilst under her care.

Chris is a lovely, friendly lady who knows just what it takes to make a dogs time away from its family as idyllic as it can be and as reassuring for the doggy mum & dad . Would we use her again you can bet you last bonio we would.

Great Home from Home

We were really pleased with the service we received from PetStay, from our initial enquiry through to collection of our pet after his stay. Before the stay we visited Maria so that she could meet us and us her. This initial visit also helped us to give details of Bruce's usual routine, which includes having tablets each day. Bruce stayed with Maria for 4 days and seemed to be very relaxed and happy. Maria sent us a couple of images so we could see him whilst we were away. We would definitely use this service again.

Jackie & Lucy

Lucy and Jackie stayed with Yvonne over the New Year Period and came home almost reluctantly. They had a good time and we were so glad to have such good care for them, especially as Jackie is now getting older and in need of care and attention which she received from Yvonne along with a loving environment.
Jane was excellent in her choice for our dogs and made us feel well cared for. She is conscientious and efficient a very good administrator. Thank you Jane and Yvonne.

Happy Eddie

Left our Eddie, our almost 9 year old Labrador with Nick with a peace in my mind. Everything I asked was understood and I felt that my wishes respected. I am sure he had a great time while we were spending Christmas abroad.
It really made a big difference to us that we knew Eddie will have a good time too....
Thank you!

Boarding

My dog had a wonderful time with Kaye. She messaged with any questions and kept me informed of his stay with regular messages and photos- he was perfectly happy to be left with her, and I felt absolutely happy that he was having a great time and being really well looked after as part of her family!! So important to know that they are in safe hands when you are away....

Pheobe & Lottie stay with Jacqui & John

Pheobe & Lottie enjoyed there stay with Jacqui & John so much they weren't to bothered about coming home, We took them back for a visit the week after because Lottie had left her toy behind (on purpose I think) and they just ran in as if the place was there own. Will definitely use them again for our next holiday.

Monty our black lab is so well cared for by Sally and family he sulks for 2 days after his visits, because he wants to go back. We have no doubt that Sally really is a good carer, she quickly got to know Monty and his habits. She updates us whilst we are away.

Perfect Stay with Peter

What can a say! What a sigh of relief..... finally found the perfect person to look after our doggies!

A huge Thankyou to Peter (and beth the lab) for letting both bouncy poppy and roxy to stay for a weekend!

We had constant updates from Peter and the dogs came back chilled and relaxed! I don't think they wanted to come home!

They had walks with lots of ball throwing and were aloud to treat peters as if it was there own home!

Thanks again Peter!

Tilly's recent stay

Tilly (my dog) has now stayed with Kaye twice. I know Kaye treats Tilly like her own dog while she is with her. She is well exercised loved and spoilt rotten, which i love as well. Kaye is great at keeping me up to date with what Tilly's doing and how she is. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a good dog sitter. My only reservation is that i don't want Kaye so booked up that i can't get Tilly in with her when i need someone.

FANTASTIC

We have used Petstay 4 times now, our French Bulldog always stays with Mick & Sue. We couldn't wish for a more caring couple to look after our dog while we're away. Nothing is too much trouble and he's made to feel at home, it really is a second home for him. If we couldn't leave Ron with Mick & Sue we wouldn't leave him at all. 5 stars !!

PetStay Boarding

I was anxious the first time I left Tyler & Bailey but I was updated regularly to ease my mind. I've used PetStay for almost 2 years now and wouldn't use any other company. My dogs are always well looked after and rarely want to leave the carers they've stayed with, which is always a good sign. Thank you :)

Bernie with Kath and Tony

This was the first time that Bernie, 21 month old Cocker Spaniel, has been away from family and we were a little worked how he would settle. He can be yappy so we were concerned if this would worsen in kennels. However, although Kath and Tony met up with him prior to the booked dates to check that he and they would bond. I left him with them for an hour because he was initially anxious, but when I returned he was ok. So when I took him, along with his familiar bedding etc., on his first day, he still wanted me to stop around, but they knew exactly how to comfort him, which was to take him for a good old "sniffy" walk. Apparently after that, he settled in fine and even slept through each night peacefully. When I collected him three days later, he was his usual happy self and had clearly grown very fond of his new friends.

Harry's Holiday

My first time using PetStay. I went away at short notice and thanks to Jane she found Harry the perfect place to stay. Peter made Harry and I feel very welcome. I felt very reassured that he was going to have a fabulous time with Peter and his beloved Bethany. He made sure that Harry's daily routine was followed and Harry soon settled in so much so when I left I don't think Harry batted an eyelid!!! At the end of my holiday when I collected Harry, he was very happy and contented and the handover was efficient and smooth. I know that Harry enjoyed his time with Peter and Bethany and I would not hesitate in requesting Harry to stay there again. He was cared for above and beyond. Thank you Peter and Jane at Petstay. I was able to enjoy my holiday knowing that Harry was being cared for in an excellent environment by Peter.

I have been using PetStay now for quite a few years and it is an amazing service. My Golden Retriever either stays with Maria or Nick and I am thrilled with how wonderfully they look after Belle who, unfortunately has pancreatitis, which is not a big problem as long as her diet is followed and her medications are given. Belle is very relaxed and happy with both careers and I can therefore leave her with absolutely no worries whatsoever. Thank you so much PetStay !,

The usual carer for my dog Daisy wasn't available but luckily another carer was. Daisy had a lovely holiday with Andy and Ella while we enjoyed ours. She settled at their home very quickly and was quite relaxed when we collected her. It was obvious that she had enjoyed her stay and been well looked after. Andy kept me informed by text to put me at ease. Thank you Andy and Ella. Daisy is looking forward to staying with you again very soon.

Frisby-Towers!

Our boy Wilf spent a week with John and carol, and absolutely loved it.
It was the perfect home from home for him.
Wilfred has Epilepsy, so finding a settled environment for him was so important, as well as carers who were willing to give him his meds and deal with him possibly having a seizure.
Thankfully Wilfred didn't, probably because he was so happy and relaxed with John and carol.
I received daily updates and photos, which was so reassuring.
I can't thank them enough and Wilf can't wait to go back!?

I cannot fault Pet stay the organisation was fantastic. But most importantly our dog Harry was really happy with his carers Mick and Sue who looked after him really well. A nice touch was regular texts from Sue while we were away letting us know how Harry was getting on. Would definitely recommend Pet Stay.
