PetStay home boarding provides a less stressful environment for your dog. They will live in a comfortable and happy home environment, their normal everyday routines will be kept with lots of safeguards in place but without the need of kennels or cages.  PetStay will give you peace of mind and your dog will be able to relax, play, eat and enjoy their holiday too!

 

  

Your dog is carefully matched to one of PetStay's trusted dog carers who have been hand-picked, interviewed, referenced, licensed and insured to provide dog sitting services. They will try to find a carer who lives close to you but more importantly they will choose one who will be most suitable for your dog/s.

You are then invited to a no obligation meeting to visit the carer to make sure you, and your dog, are happy with the carer that they have chosen.

All we'd hope for

After being unable to leave our puppy with our by usual carer we had to find an alternative home-from-home within a week! Petstay were brilliant, very quick and caring. They matched my puppy with a lovely carer who was available to meet with us at very short notice and took on board all his needs. We returned after our holiday to a happy puppy and a career who genuinely loved having him to stay. Us and our puppy are looking forward to using their services again.

The only real option for our dog - PetStay Leicestershire and Rutland

The only real option for our dog

To our dog "Kai", Petstay is like staying at the house of a friend or family with a garden , room to play, potter about, have a tea time stroll and relax in a sunny spot and is a real home from home.

To us Petstay is well organised , with a website that's easy to use , good communication , and a good system in place to provide the best service for our pet.
to us It's a comforting thought , but not something our dog will ever need to know.....

Petstay.......The only real option for our dog.

My Dog - PetStay Leicestershire and Rutland

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.

Frisby-Towers! - PetStay Leicestershire and Rutland

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!?

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.

Excellent stay! - PetStay Glasgow

I have never left Jake before, he went to board with Gloria and little Maggie, I took Jake along to met Gloria and Maggie before his stay. Gloria made me feel happy to leave Jake, she listened to all Jakes likes and dislikes. Jake then boarded with Gloria and her dog Maggie, I dropped Jake off and Gloria was brilliant with him, she provided me with updates on how he was getting on while I was away. When I returned from holiday to pick Jake up he was happy with Gloria and was happy running about with little Maggie. I can not recommend Gloria enough, Jake will defo be returning for a stay with Gloria and Maggie.

Excellent Service - PetStay - Newcastle, North Tyneside & South Northumberland

We have an elderly GSD X and needed a sitter for a number of dates in June due to family commitments. Linda was wonderful at finding sitters to meet all of our necessary dates when lots of other services couldn't help us. Communication was always prompt clear and friendly and Sharon our sitter was wonderful. On our second visit Bella our dog couldn't wait to get through the door for her holiday, something we had never seen with her before. Very happy to recommend Linda and her services. Thank you Linda (and Sharon!)

June holiday - PetStay Leicestershire and Rutland

Kaye and family have wholeheartedly welcomed Willow, our Cockerpoo, into their home and nothing is too much trouble for them to make her stay comfortable. Willow is happy and confident in their care which is testament to the relationship Kaye and family have developed with her. Great full thanks to Kaye that we can go away on holiday with no worries or concerns.

Happy doggy - PetStay Leicestershire and Rutland

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.

Would just like to thank Bev and Alan for looking after our two small yorkies Maisie and Lilly so well.
Really pleased we found Pet Stay.
We have only left the girls with family before but this is the next best thing in some ways it’s better.
Bev and Alan were lovely they let us know how the girls were getting on they had a lovely time.
Looking forward to our next holiday abroad.

Petstay South Essex Loki's holiday

Jo was incredible from start to finish. Our boy is a big dog, and we were initially apprehensive about leaving him with strangers. He is a rescue that has only been with us for a few months, and we wanted to ensure he did not feel abandoned again. Jo and her family put our fears to rest immediately, really making an effort to get to know Loki and all his rescue dog quirks. Being such a large dog, they knew how to handle him brilliantly. Jo took notes throughout the whole of the first meeting to ensure all our training efforts continued over the weekend. He had an amazing big garden to play in all weekend, and was not left a second without a bit of attention. Jo and family are the best dog sitters by far, and we look forward to using them again in the near future.

PetStay Gloucestershire - Dog Holiday

Went to Poland for a short 4 day break. Left my Scottish Terrier Mollie with one of Emma's foster families. Initial meeting went well and Mollie visited where she was going to stay and the Carer took information about Mollie and her habits/routines. Dropped her off Thursday evening on way to airport and collected her on Monday afternoon on way home. She appears to have been well looked after and was happy to see me. Emma always answers her phone if you have any problems/queries. There are several Foster families that Emma uses and she does her best to match the dog to the best family for that dog. Would recommend her services and will use them again myself on my next holiday.

PetStay Gloucestershire - Fab Service !

Emma was great for my last minute Christmas panic - quick to respond, great communication and very understanding and open - it was all sort rout in just a couple of hours, even as someone who hadn't used the service before.
Tilly's actual foster family were brilliant - kept in touch throughout the stay and got a comprehensive overview of her needs beforehand so I didn't worry for a minute! She also came back better groomed than she had been for yonks... made me feel like a bad parent ! Many thanks - would 100% recommend

PetStay Derby - Fantastic Company!

I cannot recommend PetStay Derby enough! I think it’s wonderful that not only do you meet the carer, you can see their home and you don’t feel you have to say yes to anything you’re not comfortable with.

My dog Holly is 13 years old and has never been to stay anywhere without me. I was extremely nervous about it.

I can clearly see from Holly coming home today that she’s happy and healthy. She clearly has been walked and taken care of well as she’s settled and happy.

I would recommend Pet Stay 100% and I know I would be happy going away in the future in the knowledge that my little girl is safe and happy.

I cannot thank Chris enough for the peace of mind!

PetStay in Gloucestershire - Amazing Service - already booked again!

From start to finish the level of service received was out-standing. So much care and attention was given to place our pooch with the right family which is so very important when you are leaving them behind. The family our dog Strudel was placed with was so lovely, i had no worries whatsoever whilst on holiday that he was not only being well cared for but also probably have as much fun as we were! We have already booked the same family again for our summer holiday this year and will continue to do so for any future trips. I can thoroughly recommend Emma and Petstay Glos.

Petstay South Essex - Peace Of Mind Guaranteed

I've used Petstay a couple of times last year, and already have booked for my two dogs to stay with carers three times this year!
We would never put our girls into Kennels and was apprehensive about home boarding - however PetStay matched us with a perfect couple who we met before we finalised the girls first stay, and it's been an absolute success. We know they are well cared for, loved and safe while we are away.
PetStay have made it easy to organise, and we know that the carers have been checked, their house checked and that everything is safe.
I highly recommend if you need to leave your pets behind - knowing they will be safe in a loving home. 5 Stars! Thank you PetStay

Petstay South Essex - jazz and indys holiday

We was looking for someone to look after our 2 springer spaniels whilst we went on our summer holiday and got in contact with Katie and Steve who were very professional and helpful and understood how anxious I was about leaving them for the first time. We was put in contact with one of the carers and had a very successful meeting and things were put into place for our dogs stay. Whilst we were on holiday we were sent emails and pictures which was a very nice touch and left us feeling very relieved knowing they were happy and being very well cared for. I would definitely recommend Petstay they are so helpful and offer a fantastic service we are using them again next month and hopefully later on in the year ,fingers crossed they will have a carer avaliable .

PetStay - Harrogate and North Leeds -

I first contacted Petstay a couple of years ago when we needed someone to look after our dog Poppy while we went on holiday as we would not be happy to put her in kennels. My son had always looked after her but he was about to move to America. I searched the internet for alternatives to kennels and found Petstay, I contacted Sally who was very efficient, getting back to me straight away and after asking a few questions about Poppy's needs she put us in touch with John and Frances and we haven't looked back since.

At our initial meeting it was obvious that John and Frances loved dogs and Poppy seemed very happy and comfortable with them. Even though we knew they would look after her well we were still very apprehensive about leaving her, but we needn't have worried she thoroughly enjoyed her time with them and John emailed photos of Poppy to put our minds at rest. Poppy requires medication and it is never an inconvenience to John and Frances to administer her tablets.

Poppy has now stayed with John and Frances five times and she bounds happily into their home, always pleased to see them again, when we drop her off. It is obvious to us that John and Frances love having Poppy to stay (even though she is a demon with their mail!!) We can rest assured that when Poppy stays with John and Frances that she is happy and content and she will be back to stay in the summer.

A big thank you to Sally at Petstay and John and Frances, we don't know where we would be without them.

PetStay Derby - Billy and Oscar away for the weekend

It's the first time that I have left my 2 Shetland sheep dogs. Billy is 5 and Oscar is nearly 10 months. Petstay has allowed me the peace of mind to leave my dogs as I would never put them in kennels. The carers were fantastic and allowed my boys to do exactly what they would do at home. They came back all brushed and happy and looked better than when I dropped them off! I would definitely use this service again as it is very good value for money and allowed me to leave without worrying. Thank you Petstay - Chris, Mike and Lorna for looking after my dogs.

Petstay South Essex - Home from Home

I used Pet Stay Essex for the first time last September. From the time i spoke to Kate things fell into place very quickly. I met Jo who would be looking after our dog Kye. She was lovely and made Kye and myself feel very much at home. From the time i left Kye with Jo i had no worries as i knew he would be looked after like a king. He was happy for me to leave him which helped me. I was offered to have photos sent to me of Kye while we were away. I had peace of mind that Kye would be well looked after. I could not fault Jo and her family they were excellant in looking after Kye. When i picked him up he was a very happy dog and i could tell he had enjoyed his stay. I have booked to use Pet Stay Essex this May. Kye and his new brother are going to stay with \jo and family again. Thank you Jo and Pet Stay Essex for helping put my mind at ease when leaving my dogs for us to have a holiday as its like home from

PetStay Derby - Chloe's happy holiday home!

Chloe stayed with Chris for 12 days. She had never been in kennels before and we didn't want to start when she was 15 years old when none of our friends were available to have her this time. Petstay was therefore an excellent option for us. She was welcomed warmly and all the arrangements worked well and without hitch. Chris even texted us a photo to show us how well she was settling. She obviously had a relaxing holiday as she was very calm when we collected her, and had obviously been well looked after and enjoyed her stay. She is getting on a bit and quite lively for her age, but does have the odd accident as the back end isn't woking as well as it used to! We were honest with Chris about this, and he dealt with it straightforwardly and without fuss. All in all this was a great service for us and we would definitely use it again if needed.

I didn't like the thought of my 12 yr old Rottie cross staying in kennels and was happy to find this excellent alternative . Taz stayed with Mike and Lorna for a fortnight, was very well cared for, and came home relaxed and happy, so no guilt trip for me!

PetStay in Gloucestershire - Mist and Ruby's stay

I have a 10 year old and a 5 year old German Shepherds, Mist the oldest is very stuck in her ways and Ruby loves to be around people so leaving them with someone filled me worry, but i didn't need to. Pete was fantastic and put me at complete ease. They had already had a 2 night stay first so when they got there they knew they were staying for a holiday. After unloading the car of beds, toys and food Mist went and got on her bed, I knew then she had made herself at home. On our return they were both so relaxed it was like we had not left them at all. I have no problem in recommending Pet Stay at all and will be using them every time I need to leave Mist and Ruby again. Thanks again till next time.

Pet Stay is a great solution for dog care when going away. Knowing your special friend is in good caring hands in a fellow dog lovers home is a comfort. Much better idea than simple kennels where it is uncertain whether your dog will get individual attention.

PetStay Derby -Bruno's Stay

PetStay was the perfect solution for us to go on holiday worry free and Bruno to have loads of attention in our absence.
We got Bruno when he was about ten months old and he didn't have a nice beginning. He was living outside on a roof top, tied up and was very undernourished.
It took him a few months to relax with us and to go out in the garden on his own for fear of being left out in the cold on his own again, so kennels wasn't an option, we didn't want to cause him any stress and he loves a bit of fuss now and then.
Bruno stayed with Chris and Mark, communications were great and they even sent us a few pics of Bruno chilling out. When we collected Bruno he was his normal relaxed self.
We will definitely be using PetStay again, thank you.

Thank you so much to Petstay helping us out with Oreo's care at short notice! Since Oreo developed epilepsy a year ago, we have been reluctant to leave her in kennels and wanted a more personal environment where we could be confident she would be well looked after. Oreo is also a very energetic & social dog so it was much better to know she had someone around most of the time & had plenty of exercise. We will definitely hope to use Petstay again!

PetStay Derby - Isla and Obi

We decided to try petstay as our dogs were not completely happy in kennels, they came home subdued and all you could hear was dogs barking which in turn made our dogs bark and gave them a bad throat. With Petstay we had Diane, she went through everything with us and made sure it would be a home from home stay. On collecting the dogs they ran up to us pleased to see us and I could tell they we happy, hadn't been barking and had enjoyed the company which they're used to. They'd had plenty of walks which ours need. I know we can enjoy a holiday and not worry about the dogs.

We contacted Chris as we had a last minute requirement to find a place for Holly our Jack Russell to stay for a week while we were away (first time we had contacted him) . Chris understood Holly's needs as she is not the easiest of dogs to look after! He quickly found a match and we went to meet the couple with Holly who she bonded with straight away. The whole process was very simple with a few forms to complete. Holly had a great week and we were able to have a week away confident that Holly was in safe hands and was happy. Nice touch also to get a call on our return to ensure we and Holly were both happy with her stay and the service. We would definitely recommend Chris and PetStay to others.

If you want excellent care for your dog whilst away look no further. From the professional way your dog is matched to the carers to the caring text message whilst you are on holiday to reassure you that everything is fine , you simply will not find better ANYWHERE ! Also the reasonable fees and close proximity to where you live is icing on the cake.

PetStay Glasgow - Excellent wee break

Bailey , my beautiful boy, has been very poorly since the booking to stay with Carol & Douglas was made and I wondered if I should leave him at all. He was only staying a couple of nights this being his first visit .
We had already been to meet them and could see immediately that Bailey would be very well looked after and loved on his wee break.
Carol was so kind and helpful to Bailey and especially to me and was happy to take him even although he wasn't feeling great. I was very reticent to leave him but Carol insisted and kept me advised of how he was doing over the three days.
I am totally against kennels and this is a marvelous alternative. I can't speak highly enough of Carol & Douglas and Jane who runs the franchise. It is so good to be able to leave knowing that your precious dog is in great hands.
Baileys photograph now hangs proudly beside the other doggies that visit Carol and Douglas in the rouges gallery. I have two more bookings in the diary with them and he is looking forward to going back again to be spoilt.
Thank you Carol & Douglas for everything. x

PetStay Derby - Perfect Match

Finding the right care for our boy Duke is so very important to us, and one of the reasons we don't actually go away without him very much.
I stumbled across PetStay on Facebook and then after looking at the website decided to make that call. From the moment I spoke to Chris - who was just as big a dog lover as us - his approach and questions were just what I wanted to hear. Duke is a lovely boy and an important part of our family, but as a rescue and a Weimerarner Cross he is very high maintenance and he is nervous of change. Plus he loves to be around people and get lots of fuss.
Chris wanted to know every detail about what he likes and what he doesn't and he matched us with Sue, Steve and Otto who were the perfect carers for Duke. I got text messages everyday with pictures of him looking very content playing with their dog Otto in their fabulous garden! This helped put us at ease from the very start.
Sue and Steve were so understanding of Dukes specific needs and really went out of their way to make him feel at ease, we actually think he would have been happy to stay there!!
PetStay is such a well organised and trusted organisation I wouldn't leave my boy anywhere else, their knowledge of dogs and the carers is just perfect. Thank you!

PetStay Derby - Poppy's vacation

I can not speak too highly about the service we have received from Chris from Petstay and the host couple John and June. It made our holiday knowing that Poppy was being cared for within a loving house. She is used to lots of human company so the two seperate nights she had previously spent in a very good kennel were not what she was familiar with. The match was perfect and we had the opportunity to meet, with Poppy, the host family twice before we left her. They were so understanding and made us very welcome. June sent us "a whats app" complete with photo of Poppy and an update of how she was settling in. The personalised care and good walks were just what we were looking for.This made our holiday and was so thoughtful. This will now be a regular booking and one to recomend.

Sammy & Ruby have had 2 breaks with Petstay to date - 1 of which was at very short notice but the level of care and commitment is the same regardless. Both hosts (Karen & Sheila) have taken the girls into their homes and made them part of their families from the off - pictures and messages sent regularly letting us know what fun (and mischief) they're up to so we have no worries when we're away from them. Can not recommend these guys highly enough - will definitely be booking with them again.

PetStay Derby - Fantastic Experience

From start to finish Pet Stay Derby offered a high standard of professionalism and customer care. They found a convenient and lovely holiday home for our five year old Labrador and we are delighted we have somewhere for her to go when we are on our holidays

PetStay Derby - Bailey and Bellas Holiday

Having booked a last minute week away we contacted Chris at Pet Stay Derby who was fantastic from start to finish in finding a lovely home with lovely people (Chris and Sue) to look after Bailey and Bella. Nothing was too much trouble. A lovely feeling knowing we can go away knowing our babies are being loved and cared for as if they were with us, a home from home. Thank you Pet Stay Derby.
