Jane PetStay Leicester

 

Hi I’m Mr Welby and I became part of the PetStay team in December 2014 – My ‘mum’ (Jane) has now been running PetStay since May 2014 and she has been telling me how popular she is, I do get a little jealous when she is talking to all these other ‘mum’s & dad’s’, about their dogs going on such wonderful holidays to their PetStay carers. When we are out walking I tell all my friends about PetStay and suggest that they get themselves booked in.

It is a great idea going to stay in someone home, they always make me so welcome giving my lots of love and attention but so I don’t get homesick I get to take my own bed and some toys – not all of them as they don’t fit in my suitcase! I also get the use of their garden and it’s so much fun exploring a new garden. Some of the carers have their own dog, so not only do I get my own holiday I have a playmate whilst I am there! I think I am lucky as I have never been in these ‘kennels’ my friends tell me about but this Home Boarding certainly sounds a much nicer idea!

The carers I have met have been so kind caring and loving, some have a little stock of dog biscuits for me, they always check if I am allowed one first though, and ‘mum’ says yes but I must sit first – because of this I only give carers 9/10, ‘mum’ thinks it is good that they follow all her instructions so gives 10/10, I think it would be better if ‘rules’ did not have to go on holiday with me!

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

Because us doggies love going on our holidays to PetStay so much we are always looking out for new carers, I say we because this is the best part of my job – other than an actual holiday! once ‘mum’ has talked to the carers, that is when I become involved, as we have to go out and interview the carers, because I can be such a cheeky little chap I think ‘mum’ feels if they can cope with me then they will be fine as a carer – so if you think you would like to look after me or my friends in your own home, please give us a call and we can arrange a meeting – I look forward to meeting you.

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

grey dog icon

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.

Your dog will be matched with a carer who is best suited to their individual needs and requirements, for example, if your dog prefers their own company you can choose to board your dog alone or if your dog is a social butterfly they can stay with a carer who already has a dog.  

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.

Jane has placed Pie with various carers over the last few years and all have been a very good match for her. Most recently Pie stayed with Yvonne and Peter for nearly 2 weeks. Yvonne kept me up to date with messages and photos of Pie enjoying her holiday. Yvonne was also very insightful to pick up on Pie's many characteristics. When it came to the end of her holiday, Pie was happy to see me but also appeared comfortable where she was, relaxing on the couch while we chatted and got all her things together. She came home a relaxed, well exercised, happy dog.

Guinness thoroughly enjoyed his holiday with Linda and Ron in Thurmaston and made himself very much at home! As he’s a rescued greyhound I don’t want to put him in kennels so a caring home environment is perfect.

Muzzie has just spent 2 weeks being very well cared for by Steve and Diana. He previously has only been cared for by family. We received regular updates from them with photos and I know from the comments they made that they understood him really well. It was lovely to go on holiday confident that our dog was being well looked after. I think he might have stayed with them forever given the opportunity!

Splash and Marley had their first experience of a week with Petstay. The first time not being cared for by family or good friends, having never been in kennels. Both dogs had the best time.
They feel that they had a wonderful weeks holiday/treat in the caring home of Jean.
We had text and photos sharing their daily activities to ease our worries. All their needs were catered for and on collection the dogs thought it had been so good that they weren't that fussed about coming home!!
They have already booked themselves in for another stay!!

We used two different wonderful doggy sitters. Our Newfoundland stayed with Iain and Denise in March and with Maria and Family in May. Due to our circumstances we are unable to book too far in advance and we found that both carers are wonderful. We used Maria in May as Iain and Denise we’re booked. Ozzy was very well looked after in both homes. We wouldn’t hesitate to leave our hungry, food orientated huge boy with either of these lovely people again. Ozzy was in an excellent condition when we picked him up both times and we are so grateful that we have found such lovely people to leave our big boy with.

We recently found ourselves in a situation when our elderly relative could no longer care for our 7 year old chocolate labrador whilst we on holiday, we were desperate to find a solution as we were concerned Bracken wouldnt be suited to staying in Kennels.
We stumbled across Petstay on the internet and after reading the information website and speaking to Jane we knew Petstay was the perfect solution.
We visited Amanda and her family with Bracken prior to her first stay
and immediately knew that Jane had found a perfect match and Bracken would love her "holiday home".
Bracken has just returned from her second stay with Amanda and her family and we couldnt be happier with the way they have welcomed Bracken into their home and cared for her as if she were their own.
They are a lovely family and its nice to see they enjoy looking after her.
The service to find a suitable carer by Jane is second to none and Little touches like text messages and pics sent during her stay are really reassuring to us. On a whole the service is excellent , value for money and highly recommended.

As ever Amy proved reliable and caring. It's not easy looking after Jasper as he is so stubborn but she happily accepts return visits. We wish her luck when she gets her own puppy and hope Jasper will be compatible if she decides to continue with Pet Stay.

I have used Petstay for around 3 years now. Having moved from the North East to Leicester i have no family to rely on when it comes to looking after my dogs. I have always found the process easy to book and feel at ease leaving my boys with their carers be it one night or a few weeks. I am always kept up to date with texts and pictures which provides comfort and my dogs come home (reluctantly) with happy faces and wagging tails. Thanks again to Diana & Steve for caring for the boys again x

I have used Petstay a few times now and Charlie our Cocker Spaniel always loves being looked after by Yvonne and Peter. I cannot praise them enough, they are so kind, caring, attentive and know how Charlie ticks. Jane got us the perfect match, she listened to my requirements and he now has a second home from home.
Its such a huge relief to know he is being looked after so well whilst we away and all the legal bits and bobs are totally covered giving 100% piece of mind. thank you

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

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...!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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 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.
