PetStay provides a home from home dog-boarding service across the UK.

They use hand-picked carers local to you who will provide the best possible care for your dogs whist you are away.




A loving, caring, safe and less stressful alternative to kennels…




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.

PetStay Leicestershire and Rutland - Great Service

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!
