PetStay - Home Dog Boarding Covering Derby, Derbyshire

We are THE Alternative to Kennels, providing a safe, loving and secure environment for your dog.

At PetStay Derby we’ve carefully selected many caring and affectionate people who will care for your dog(s) while you’re away on holiday. Our dog sitters in Derby will provide a far better experience for your dogs than kennels because we provide a home from home environment, a real alternative to kennels.

Here at PetStay Derby we offer an outstanding dog sitting service to families who want the peace of mind of knowing their dogs are happy and settled in a loving environment whilst they are away on holiday.

We will pair your dog with a suitable loving carer who will ensure that your dog will receive home from home care and won’t miss out on any home comforts they are used to. Our carer will match your dog’s daily routine to ensure they remain as settled as possible.

PetStay Derby is fully licensed and insured and since 2005 PetStay have gained an excellent reputation for providing a home dog boarding service second to none, far from the experience of dog boarding kennels.

About Me
Hi, I’m Chris and I run Derby’s new branch of PetStay.

Having grown up with dogs all my life, it’s always been my aim to take my love of dogs and turn it into a career and to be actually doing it is a dream come true.

On taking holidays ourselves it always took plenty of planning to ensure our much loved Rottweiler, Bella was well looked after without the need of having to go into a kennel and when our parents started caring for another branch of PetStay and seeing what they had to offer I knew I had to get involved and bring this much loved alternative to Derby.

I know the importance of ensuring you can go on holiday knowing your dog(s) is well cared for and with PetStay you get that peace of mind as well as giving your dog(s) a little holiday too. All our carers go through rigorous checks before they can start caring so we know we only have the best on board.

I’m really looking forward to working with you in giving your dog a home from home holiday as well as building long term relationships with other dog lovers!

“Happy Clarrie I have used Petstay twice. Previously I have put my dog, Clarrie, into kennels which she appears to be happy in but, when it could not take her last year, I thought that I would try Petstay. Although it is more expensive than kennels the service is excellent. We met the carers to make sure we were happy with them and they were happy with Clarrie. She has stayed with them twice and is very happy with them. Similarly, they clearly love having her. They have a comfortable warm house with a big secure garden and are near good country walks. I feel much happier that she is in a normal home and not a kennel cage. I would recommend this service to anyone. ”

- Tim Challans

“Daisy's diary Daisy loved her holiday with Chris and Sue. Really pleased with the care and good fun she had. I am confident with the strong control she received too. The holiday was arranged at short notice but PetStay Chris was quick and very efficient. Many thanks. ”

- Sally Buczkiewicz

“My dog is happy! I have a rescue dog who is extremely sensitive to changes in his environment. He hates being away from us so kennels are not an option. I was so impressed with how well paired we were and the team found the perfect carers for our time away. I can’t rate the service highly enough. Very glad my neighbour with a sensitive spaniel recommended them!”

- Natalie Davenport

“We have really valued the service provided by Petstay... They provided a personalised friendly service allowing us the assurance that our dog was in good hands while we were away. We met our host family and had the chance to see how our dog got on with them. We also exchanged WhatsApp messages while we were away which was fun! Altogether a great service!”

- Chrissy Hill

“Safe and Sound Cannot recommend Phil and Sue highly enough. My dogs Charlie and Holly loved their time with them. Very friendly couple. Would not hesitate using them again. Thank you Sue and Phil for making our time away relaxing and enjoyable knowing they were both in such good hands. Definitely highly recommend”

- David Blackhurst

“A very happy Dog Our Petstay sitter is fantastic, Roo is always happy when we leave her, and content, she is well exercised and has lots of fuss too. Very good communication from the Margaret whilst we are on holiday. We would definitely recommend Pet stay as we were given the perfect sitter for our dogs needs.”

- Kelly Rowell

“Home from home We found Pet stay Derby via a recommendation. After speaking to Chris for information we were more than assured and happy to provide onto the next step which was to meet Phil and Sue who our treasured Harley would be boarding with. A fantastic couple! Harley took to them straight away which made us happy. Harley stayed for five days. He was well loved and looked after. Regular texts and photos too. Would not send Harley anywhere else now. Thank you!”

- Lisa

“I’m so happy I found Petstay. Harry had the best time with Lynda & Andy Simms & family. The care & attention Harry received was exceptional. We will definitely be booking Harry in again, next time we go away. I have been recommending Petstay to all my friends, as I think it’s fantastic.”

- T.Speirs

“We were worried about our 13 year old Labrador being away from us for over a week, but our concerns were groundless. Our own dog routines were adopted by Ian and Odette, and our dog was clearly very happy in their care. Regular updates and photographs calmed our nerves while away! The Petstay booking experience/administration was efficient and painless. We will definitely be returning customers”

- N.Carse

“Chris and Sue who had my two dogs are the loveliest people. I felt confident leaving my dogs in their care and they listened carefully to their normal routines etc and tried to replicate these as much as possible. They sent me messages and photos whilst I was away so I felt reassured that all was well. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking for an alternative to kennels.”

- Mrs Last

“Great Dog Boarders Amazing Pet sitters. I do not have to worry about my fur babies when I'm on holiday. A much better service than kennels”

- Tammy

“Highly recommend Brilliant company. My Cody stayed with the owner of the business. Happiest I've ever felt leaving him with a sitter. Highly recommend. Great communication, policies and procedures. Just what you'd expect from a 5* service.”

- Anna Swift

“Our dog Daisy had her first holiday with Paul and Pat and had a great time. They updated me by text that she had settled in really quickly so I felt reassured that Daisy was happy. Paul and Pat were happy to follow Daisy's normal routine. I've used Petstay several times now with some different carers due to availability. All the carers have been excellent. For a few pounds more than kennels Daisy gets one to one, home from home care, so she gets a real holiday as well as me!”

- Ruth Wright

“Louis and Bodie Petstay 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.”

- J Wilders

“Wonderful holiday for Paddy! We were very apprehensive about where our young Puppy would go whilst we were on holiday, he was only 5 months old & Kennels seemed to bleak & austere for such a young dog! Petstay were great, Paddy went to Stay with Liz & Alan- & Sketch - & he had a great time, going on adventures with Sketch! We got photos & updates every couple of days & he looked very happy. We have rebooked already for our next Holiday in July, we can go on holiday assured he is being well looked after. Thank-you ”

- Dainne Frankish

“This could be the death of the traditional kennels. From the initial contact with Chris, to picking Barney up from Odette and Ian, this was a terrific first experience with Petstay. We will NEVER use our local kennels again - it was more like a doggie Colditz. We boarded Barney from March 8th to 15th and, though he cried a little when we left him, he soon settled in. We received text updates from Odette throughout our holiday, and Barney was fast asleep on the sofa when we went to pick him up. We heartily recommend the Petstay experience. The small increase in fees over kennels is more than compensated for by the quality of the service. We will not hesitate to have Barney stay with Odette and Ian again.”

- Ivor Johnstone

“Happy "Ollie" days... Our 9 year old Cavalier Spaniel "Ollie" is a very adaptable dog, but we could tell when we picked him up from kennels he hadn't liked the experience much - he would cry loudly on collection and couldn't get away fast enough. Petstay was recommended to us by another Cavalier owner, so we thought we'd give it a try. It wasn't a lot more than kennels but the difference for Ollie was obvious when we collected him - he was pleased to see us but he was calm and didn't seem so desperate to come home like before. We don't feel guilty about going away without him anymore as we know he's having a lovely time at his home from home with Liz and her family. Highly recommended.”

- Sally Murphy

“Beans stay with PetStay Beans our 2 year old Cockerpoo really enjoyed his stay with Wendy, Robert and their family. Beans loved playing with their two dogs Poppy and Toby. It was a home from home. Wendy was great at keeping me up to date with what Beans had been up to while we were away so I had peace of mind. We would definitely send Beans for a stay with Wendy and Robert again. ”

- E.Frankin

“Thank you Petstay Derby for putting our mind at ease with placing my girls in the care of Gary and Vicki whilst we had a holiday. My girls were looked after 1st class and would certainly recommend this service to anyone wanting there treasured fur babies looked after. Thank you”

- G. Egginton

“Kathy P. Overall rating    4.3 Peace of mind Alfie our 9 year old poodle/border terrier cross stayed with Lorna and Mike while we went on holiday abroad. Alfie is by nature a very anxious little dog who hates being left alone so understandably we were keen to make sure that he was matched with the right people. Chris understood what we were looking for and we needn't have worried, as soon as we met Lorna and Mike we knew Alfie would be fine. They clearly love dogs and Alfie seemed very comfortable in their home. It was fantastic to be able to go on holiday feeling that he would be looked after in the same way that we do. I would have no hesitation in recommending PetStay Derby and will be using them again”

- K.Probert

“Cassie stayed with Chris, Mark and the fabulous Audrey while we went for a few days abroad. Cassie is an 11month old cocker spaniel and we wanted her to stay somewhere she would be looked after as we look after her at home. Chris let us know exactly what we needed to bring, we met up to make sure Cassie would be comfortable and although I was apprehensive about leaving Cassie for a few days for the first time, I was reassured that she would be well looked after by people who obviously love dogs. Whilst away Chris sent us photos of Cassie - something which became a highlight of our youngest son's holiday! When the time came to collect her we could see she had been well cared for and she obviously felt very comfortable with Chris. I would have no hesitation in recommending PetStay Derby and will be using them again.”

- Catherine W

“My dog Ted (German Pointer) recently stayed with a family at Barrow - I have to say we were thrilled to bits. He was treated like a member of the family, and settled in incredibly well - he got on famously with the owners 2 dogs. We were sent regular text messages and photos of him out on walks and he seemed to be having a wonderful time. I could immediately tell when i picked him that he had a great time, he was almost reluctant to leave! Absolutely no hesitations in recommending.”

- Mrs J Wilson

“Thank you for a happy and safe holiday for Millie.She loved it, and we had peace of mind knowing she was being cared for so kindly. A really wonderful alternative to kennels for all!”

- Diana Smith

“We only had our dog 5months she is a rescue dog, 12months old and had been in kennels for 5 months. We had a family member lined up to look after her but this fell through. We were very anxious about who we could trust to look after her and of course were adamant she not go back into a kennel environment. Petstay to the rescue! Chris was extremely helpful and put us in contact with Diane who looked after our dog just as we do, she was happy, we were happy. We hope we now have solved our dog sitting problem for any future vacations and do hope Chris can help us out again and hopefully Diane will be free to have her. I would not hesitate to recommend petstay to anyone.”

- Kay Turpin

“We found this service to be professional. Our hosts Pat and Paul were 1st class will use again very loving people towards our little boy”

- M. Hans

“The service from PetStay from the first contact to leaving my two small dogs with their host family has been exceptional. Nothing has been too much trouble. Time was taken to match my puppies to the right carers and it was spot on from the outset. Beatrix and Oscar rushed to greet their 'Auntie Viv' on their second stay with huge excitement. Mine are needy and at times overly so but Viv and Mike took it all in their stride despite sleepless nights to start off with. I would never use any other pet care service now I've found them.”

- Ms G Camina

“We found the experience of using PetStay first class. Both Daisy & Lillie really enjoyed their holiday with Terry & Wendy. We think that it was just like a home from home. They were really well cared for. We were so pleased to have found somewhere that we had full confidence in leaving our beloved dogs. We would have no hesitation in using them again, & also in fully recommending them.”

- Mr & Mrs Conley

“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!”

- Alexander Clark

“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.”

- Rachel Tyler

“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 working 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.”

- Liz & Dave Matthews

“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! Chris ensures that the pet and carers are well matched, and from the initial meeting I knew my precious lad would be in good hands. I will definitely be using this service again.”

- Sue Winfield

“My dog Hetty had an excellent stay and enjoyed the company of her two new doggie friends. She was kindly and yet firmly treated. I would recommend PetStay as a first class alternative to kennels.”

- Faith Cook

“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.”

- Michelle Mason

“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! ”

- Michelle Parker

“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.”

- Sue Costello

“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.”

- Simon Lowe

“I would thoroughly recommend Pet stay, Jane who Jack stayed with is a really lovely lady. She text me next day to let me know how Jack was and he was happy and settled with her for all the time I was away. I will use pet stay again when I go away.”

- Sue Danvers

“Mike and Lorna looked after my Westie Max for a week while we went away, and they were wonderful. We meet them before we booked so we new them, which meant we could relax while we were away and enjoy our holiday knowing Max was well looked after. Have booked again.”

- Kathleen Allsop

“I have used Chris at PetStay twice and both times I have recieved excellent service. Chris is very helpful and is passionate about getting the right carers that suit your dogs needs. I will always think of Chris at Petstay anytime I am looking for a short stay home for my dog. Excellent. ”

- Ed Hale

“Petstay Derby are amazing! They found the perfect hosts for my ageing pampered Rottie Tilly x Wendy and Terry were amazing with her and spoilt her as much as I do x having used other companies who provide a similar service in the past, Petstay Derby are by far the best I have ever used and shall definitely be booking Tilly in for another holiday with them.”

- Krissy

“Usually family member looks after our 9 year old Black Lab Bert but this time the family member was coming on holiday with us so we needed an alternative carer for Bert and we are so happy that Derby Petsay popped up on our Facebook page. Chris responded to my initial contact extremely quickly and I felt very reassured after speaking to him that he would be able to find the perfect holiday home for Bert. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the family that Bert was due to stay with had to cancel the day before our holiday but Chris had already found an alternative holiday home for Bert when he let us know. Carol was a gem taking Bert in at the last minute and made us feel completely reassured as soon as we met her. Bert can be a little lively when out on walks (even at age 9) but Carol was not put off. When we picked Bert up the following week he was in great condition, he was happy to see us but didn't seem in a hurry to leave Carol's house. Carol also didn't seem desperate to get rid of him either (LOL). Carol filled us in on what Bert had been up to while we had been away and he had even behaved himself while out on walks!! Chris went above and beyond the call of duty and visited Carol and Bert during the week to make sure they were both ok as they hadn't had a chance to meet before we dropped him off. Chris even took Bert out for a walk and sent us a photo. We are extremely impressed with the service we have received from Chris at Petstay and delighted with the way Carol looked after Bert. We would recommend them both wholeheartedly and will definitely be using them again. I have been telling everyone about Petty. Thank you Chris and Carol.”

- Teresa & Phil Breedon

“Finding the right care for our boy Duke is so very important to us, and one of the reasons we dont actually go away without him very much. I stumbled accross 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 doesnt 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 wouldnt leave my boy anywhere else, their knowledge of dogs and the carers is just perfect. Thank you!”

- Sharon Stevens-cash

“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.”

- Jacqueline Dakin

“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. ”

- Kate Wilkinson

“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.”

- Nicola Neale

“Well where do I start we have never left our dog Charlie so when I was told about petstay I didn't hesitate but contact Chris &his partner the owners of the company he found us a lovely carer for our 3 legged jack Russell with a lady an her husband (Diane & Andrew Charlie and I went for a meeting with the carer a week before we went on holiday to Greece the minute I met her I new that this was where I wanted Charlie to stay with piece of mind that he was going to be well looked after with lots of love and affection would not hesitate in the future to have petstay look after our precious little dog would definitely recommend thanks to petstay an his carers”

- Debbie Gaskill

“I was so worried about leaving my 7 year old dog with someone else, as I normally have a family member to care for him when I'm way. But I couldn't be more please with the care he got. Firstly I got in contact with Chris via a web site I found. He was so helpful and lessoned to me regarding Alfie's needs and put me in touch with a lady, who I visited with my dog before my hols. She was so caring and was happy to help with any needs Alfie as. When I went on my hols she texted me to confirm that Alfie had had a good first night and part way though the hols texted me again to let me know he had settled in really well. I was so please that she contacted me, as it put my mind to rest and I could enjoy my hols. Thank you Pet Stay for all your help and to Jane for the care that Alfie received, I will be using you again. One happy customer”

- Amanda Wilders

“Have a elderly Collie Dillon who has never stayed in kennels so this is the perfect answer for anyone worried about leaving thier pet while on Holiday. Laura & Mick looked after him really well and kept us informed about how Dillion was doing and that he had settled in. Meet them before we went away so they were fully aware of his needs and little foilbles. He was very happy and well cared for and would not hesitate to use this service again”

- Clive & Ruth New

“From first meeting Kate and her family and of course Archie,I just knew the high standard of care and love Zippy would encounter.Knowing that he would be with another dog to help with his social skills and and a family that would help with his separation anxiety, allowed us to go away with no concerns. The communication and daily updates from Kate really were appreciated and the photos of Zip just looking relaxed and happy. I would highly recommend the is service to anyone who wants their dog to adjust easily to you not being there-very professional and grounded people put your mind at ease”

- Mairead Whitty

“Having used PetStay twice whilst away on short breaks, I have the peace of mind that my dog, Teddy, will be well cared for on my next break which is for two weeks. Teddy was just a puppy when he first had a PetStay holiday so I was obviously apprehensive about leaving him…I shouldn’t have been, as he seemed to have the time of his life!! He was well cared for and the regular updates Odette sent completely put me at ease and allowed me to relax. Living so close to Odette, he now gets excited every time he sees her or Ian and their dogs Henry and Lennox. I couldn’t imagine using an alternative or kennels for him now as there’s nothing better than coming home to a happy little face and wagging tail.”

- Lindsay Smith

“I used this service for the first time, I thought it was well organised, friendly, easy to communicate and a fantastic service. Will definitely be using again without a doubt. Fully recommended!”

- Cara Mc Fadyen

“How can we thank you enough, Chris you couldn't have chosen a better couple than Wendy and Terry for Blue. He was so happy with them , well looked after and spoilt, he came home well behaved on the lead from the walks they had taken him on. Wendy and Terry kept us informed while we were away , and sent messages and photographs, so I had no worries at all , only praise for them and yourself. Look forward to booking again, and would recommend you to anyone . Many thanks once again.”

- Sue & Mike CarMicheal

“Pat and Paul were amazing, they really took the time to get to know Lottie our 7 month old Border Collie puppy. We were concerned about leaving such a young dog while we were away but we did not need to worry. Lottie was looked after fantastically, Pat and Paul were brilliant. We would definitely use Petstay Derby again. Thanks Chris for taking the time to find the right home for Lottie, we had a great holiday knowing she was staying with people who really cared for her.”

- Tracey Perry

“This was the first time I have ever used this type of service and Chris was so helpful and understanding seeking a home for Daisy and Maisie at very short notice during this busy holiday season. I was very nervous about the whole thing as our usual dogsitter was unavailable. Thankfully he found a lovely couple not far away. We took both the girls to meet them and they settled in their home and garden instantly. They clearly love dogs and had plenty of time to walk and love my babies. I was delighted that they had no other animals as my girls are not used to sharing their space, which is something I mentioned to Chris in our first conversation. We were so pleased with the match that we extended the stay as the girls were going to be with a friend for the first half of our holiday, however I felt much happier with them staying for the whole duration even though it would cost us more. It was just the right thing to do. There were further complications in the run up to the due day but Chris went beyond the call of duty to help out and reassure me everything would be fine. When we got home and collected the girls, I could instantly see how much they had enjoyed their little doggy holiday. They have been home for a day now and show no signs of being insecure and clingy which for me is a really good sign. If I need to I would happily use this service again, preferably with the same couple. Please be reassured I would not use this service if I was not happy with it. I am extremely fussy about who looks after my girls. Chris was professional, patient and understanding even when I got in a fluster.”

- Sophie Tee

“ We are completely happy with the care Bella received at Jane and Jeff's via Pet Stay As our pet is a rescue we were concerned about putting her back in kennels and so chose Pet stay and had friendly support from Chris to match her with the correct carer . They made us all very welcome when we visited and asked for relevant information to ensure Bella had a home from home and usual routine. Jane kept us informed, by email ,how she was doing and even a picture showing how relaxed Bella was ,which reassured us we had made the correct decision as it was the first time she had been left with strangers . On return, Bella was happy to see us but her body language with Janet and Jeff showed how she had become attached to them also (Jane and Jeff's did too ). We will have no hesitation to return to use the service in the future .”

- Mark Duffield

“We have recently come back from a wonderful 3 week holiday. It was made more wonderful by the reassurance that our crazy 3 year old Hungarian Viszla, Huxley was being well cared for. We got texts throughout our holiday to say how he was settling in which was very important to us. When we picked him up he looked fantastic. We could tell he was happy as, although he was pleased to see us, he was in no hurry to leave. We will definitely be using Derby Petstay again as it gives us the peace of mind that our furry family member is having as good a time as us.”
