PetStay - Home Dog Boarding in Dorset and Bournemouth


We are THE Alternative to Kennels, providing a safe, loving and secure environment for your dog.
 
At PetStay - Dorset and Bournemouth is licensed and insured and fully compliant with the Animal Welfare Regulations 2018.  We've carefully selected many caring and affectionate people who will
care for your dog while you’re away on holiday.  All carers have a secure fenced garden and are at home during the day to spend time loving and caring for your dogs.  Safety is also very important to us, so we never mix dogs from different families and all walks will be taken on the lead. 

PetStay - Dorset and Bournemouth

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 you will meet beforehand to ensure that your dog will receive home from home care and won’t miss out on any home comforts they are used to. Our carers will match your dog’s daily routine to ensure they remain as settled as possible.

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
Hello, my name is Isabelle and I am the owner of the Dorset and Bournemouth Branch of PetStay. I live in Dorset with my husband, three daughters and two much loved family dogs – Labradoodles called Chester and Poppy. I am a fully qualified and accredited dog trainer and have been helping dogs and their owners for most of my working life.

I understand the effort and love owners put into the training and care of their dogs and from experience, I know that owners do not want to leave their furry family members in a kennel. This is why I set up the PetStay Dorset and Bournemouth Branch – to offer bespoke home boarding for family dogs.

“Thank you Isabelle for finding Jackie and George to take care of Alfie my Precious Ruby cavalier KC spaniel They were absolutely fantastic as foster mum and dad and the love and attention they gave Alfie meant that he certainly didn’t miss me at all ! This was the first time I’ve ever used a pet sitting service and I can’t rate highly enough The attention and consideration given to me and Alfie from Isabelle, Jackie and George. ”

“Ralph had a super time with Andy, Sarah and Pickle. He was very well looked after and treated as part of the family. Isabelle was extremely accommodating when we had an unexpected change of plans and very swiftly found an alternative sitter. I cannot fault the service and would very much recommend.”

- Nicola

“Very professional service provided from start to finish. My two dogs were well matched with Andy & Sarah who looked after them as if they were their own. I would have no problem recommending them and pet safe to anyone looking to home board their dogs.”

- Sue Breckon

“Isabelle found us Jill and Brian to look after our young Bichon Daisy while we were on holiday. The whole process was very professional with everything covered. We met Jill and Brian ahead of the boarding and they made us feel at ease leaving Daisy with them. Daisy enjoyed her holiday with Jill and Brian. They kept us updated with videos and photos, and we were able to relax ourselves knowing that Daisy was being well looked after. ”

“Thank you Petstay for organizing the little holiday for Lockie! Jenny and the whole company were amazing and with it being our first time away from Lockie, we were completely assured throughout his stay that he was in very good hands. We will definitely be using your services again! ”

- Rachel Flay

“Thank you so much to Isabelle and Stacey for looking after our boy when we were away. It was our first time leaving him and we were nervous! Chewie absolutely adores Stacey and had a fantastic time, he didn't want to leave her when we went to pick him up! Stacey was so wonderful, keeping in touch and sending pictures & videos, she really is a perfect match for us. Chewie was obviously showered with love and attention and very well looked after! Thank you again, Chewie is already looking forward to his next holiday! ”

“Thank you Isabelle for finding Bev for us, who looked after our boisterous puppy, Gibbs had a great time and was well looked after. We will definitely use PetStay again. Thank you.”

“Grace had a lovely weekend with Diane and Ossie. In fact, on collection we found Grace stretched out in the living room with Ossie, very comfy and warm on a cold February day. Diane and Ossie are very caring, kind and responsible. I'm sure Grace will be happy to spend time with them again. Thank you, Isabelle at Pet Stay, for finding good carers. ”

- Jean Baylis

“Thank you for finding us a lovely carer for India, whilst we were away, she appears to have had a brilliant time and made herself at home straight away. Will definitely be using this service again.”

- Sue and Helen

“I was so happy with the entire service. Isabelle was very helpful in finding a carer for my golden retriever Honey at short notice. I could not have been happier with Stacey with whom Honey stayed with. Upon meeting Stacey, she instantly put me at ease, and I was totally confident that Honey would be well cared for. Stacey kept me updated with messages and photos, whilst I was away. Honey looked so happy and relaxed in the photos, so much so I thought she may not want to come home! I would thoroughly recommend Stacey and PetStay. ”

- Joanne

“Billy had a wonderful time with his sitters, he didn't even look back when he left me! He behaved well and came home clearly happy and as mad as usual. I would recommend this service again and again.”

- Debbie Steel

“Our SCWT Lucky has a bad leg and we wanted somwhere special for her to stay. Petstay service was excelent as was the sitter June I cant praise them enough.”

- Peter Jefferies

“Our Cocker Spaniels Rocky & Stephen thoroughly enjoyed their stay with their Petstay family. This was the first time we had to leave the dogs ever so we were nervous but after contacting Isabelle at PetStay we were put in touch and met with the family. The whole process was very easy and to cap it off, as we had never left the dogs before our carer agreed to send us daily updates with photos, basically the dogs had as much of a holiday as we did. We will use PetStay again.”

- Mark Corlick

“Our previous pet sitter retired so I needed to find a new one to look after our Border Terrier and I am so glad that we found PetStay. Isabelle carefully listened to what was needed and matched us up with a lovely couple who live a few miles from us. We met them a few months before our dog was to go to them so they could decide if she would fit in with them and for us to see their home and get to know them. All worked well and we made the booking. Our fur baby stayed with them for two weeks recently and was obviously very happy with them as they were with her. We were so pleased with the way they looked after our girl and we have booked in two more stays for next year. I would highly recommend this company. ”

- Patricia Heseltine

“Thank you so much for finding a dog sitter for my Charlie Boy. Dianne was such a lovely lady and Charlie settled in fast :-). Very happy and atleast I know when I go away again Charlie will be in safe hands :-)”

- Sarah Whitbourn

“We are so pleased we found Petstay. Isabelle was amazing at finding us the perfect carer for our 1year old lab x staff, Blue. Caroline and her lovely family were absolutely AMAZING with her. Blue is a very energetic, bouncy ball of crazy at times and Caroline coped with and met her needs perfectly. Blue loved it...Lots of long walks, games, training, cuddles, treats and lots of love. Caroline even celebrated our pups birthday with a birthday treat as she noticed Blue turned one while we were away. We didn't worry one bit, knowing Blue was in the best hands. Plus daily updates with great photos... I couldn't of wished for more. Highly recommend. Thank you”

“We used PetStay for the first time this weekend & will definitely be coming back. Isabelle did a great job of organising everything & Kelly had the 'pleasure' of sitting our 2 Miniature Schnauzers Dylan & Dexter. Despite them being lords of the manner at home & getting away with everything & anything, they apparently behaved themselves & she loved having them. It was great to go away for a weekend knowing they were in good hands. ”

- Ian T

“Thank you so much to Isabelle and Beverley for looking after our still crazy and middle aged Jack Russell,Pipi. Isabelle's organisation is excellent and we met Beverley with Pipi a few months before we went away. Isabelle was very efficient and kept in touch with us and Beverley is clearly a dog lover. Pipi was very content when we collected her after our holiday and it seems that she and Beverley had had a whale of a time! Beverley took Pipi out with her during the day, including 3 walks a day, which was lovely for Pipi to be so occupied. Thank you so much to both of you for looking after her, and us so well.”

- Liz T

“Thank you very much Isabelle for pairing up our dog Tilly with Jackie and her family. Tilly loves to be made a fuss over, which she is in Jackie's care! She loves going back there and I know she is in very good hands. ”

- Linda

“My little boy Louis, 14 months old had a fantastic stay with his friend Tilly with Kelly from PetStay, I was worried about leaving him as he had not been away from me since I had him last year. But all my fears were put out of my mind after I up met with Kelly, who had a lovely clean home and you could see loved dogs. When I collect Louis I was so happy to see he was relaxed and I think wanted to stay with Kelly and her 2 girls who fussed after Louis and Tilly,and took them for so many walks. I will certainly being using Kelly and PetStay again. Thank you for taking such good care of my little prince. Si and Louis ”

- Si Hedger-Cooper

“Thank you soso much for pairing us up with Kelly and her lovely family. We can tell Marley's had an amazing time and he appears even more relaxed and playful after his little holiday. He is definitely looking forward to his next stay and will be telling all his friends about it in the meantime. ”

- Anke Collington

“Our 1 year old cockerpoo Tinker had a lovely time on her weekend away with petstay. Kelly looked after her so well and the whole process was very easy. Will definitely use again :) ”

- Nat Jolley

“I also wanted to let you know personally how delighted I was with your service and especially Nicky who looked after Rosie superbly. I felt 100% confident in her and am sure that Rosie was very much part of their family and that she had a very enjoyable stay there. We would certainly use Nicky again in the future and I would be grateful if you could pass on our thanks to her too.”

“My 7 month old dog stayed with the carers for a week introduced by Isabelle through PetStay. The carers had their own dog that was carefully matched to the character of my dog Bella. I was impressed with the organisational side of PetStay, all aspects of the care and my preferences were discussed and taken care of. Bella was looked after very well and I had daily updates from the carers through email. I was very happy that my dog stayed with a family and not in a kennel. I will definitely use PetStay again! Thank you!”

“Thank you so very much Isabelle for finding Kelly and her family to look after my much loved and treasured Bailey. Kelly and her children made Bailey, a 20 month old Cocker Spaniel and myself feel very welcome in her home. Bailey enjoyed his stay and was totally spoilt on his first trip away. I feel more than happy to leave him with Kelly again. ”

- Suzanne Parry

“Thank you very much Isabelle for finding a dog sitter for Pepper. I am very happy with Jackie and Pepper also seems very happy when I pick her up. Pepper is 10 years old but things she is still a puppy and full of mischief. Pepper also likes lots of cuddles and Jackie is happy to provide them. Thanks Becky and Pepper. ”
