PetStay - Home Dog Boarding in East Lincs and Bury

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

At PetStay East Lancs & Bury we’ve carefully selected many caring and affectionate people who will care for your dog while you’re away on holiday. Our dog sitters in East Lancs and Bury who are all fully licensed (if required by the local council) and insured 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 East Lancs & Bury 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.

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. Now PetStay East Lancs & Bury are becoming known as the local dog sitters.


PetStay East Lancs & Bury

About Me
I’m Linda Healey, welcome to PetStay East Lancs & Bury. My two friends are Lex and Zena, who used to be well cared for at Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary but who have now found their forever home. Like Lex and Zena, most dogs would prefer to be in a home rather than a kennel. PetStay East Lancs & Bury has handpicked hosts who are home during the day and have secure, fenced gardens. All our carers are dog lovers who will look after your pet as if it was their own, giving it plenty of playtime and cuddles in a secure, caring environment. You can trust us to look after your pet and keep it safe and happy. If you are going away and need a holiday home for your dog, or if you would like to find out about becoming a carer, please get in touch.

Reviews

“Our lovely dog Rex stayed with Ian & Caron and was extremely well looked after. We received daily updates sometimes several a day and could see from those contacts the love, care and attention they gave our special boy. PetStay immediately set up arrangements and pre meets once we had chosen to use their services We are very grateful to all and it provides us with peace of mind so we can enjoy our holidays to. Thank you ”

“First time with petstay, so was a little bit apprehensive at first as it was the first time I had left my 8 month old puppy lucy for the week. It was like home from home and the couple who was looking after lucy were lovely, lucy appeared to be very relaxed and happy in herself when we came to pick her up. Would be using petstay again and would recommend then to anyone wanting somewhere for their pet.”

- susan

“I can’t speak highly enough of the service, love and care given to our Colin!! Linda and Allan are a lovely caring couple!!

“Same as most people this is the first time I have left the dogs with people other than family members. I contacted petstay and they introduced me to Anne. A meet was arrange at her house where she met Suggs and Mitty and obviously vice versa. Anne and her hubby were lovely people and I felt assured the dogs would be in good hands. Whilst on holiday Anne kept me posted with pictures of the dogs having a good time ! Definitely recommend and would use again ”

- Elaine Leach

“Fantastic care. Joey's carers really looked after him it was a home from home and we were able to enjoy our holiday without worrying. We got regular messages and photos to keep us updated. Will definitely use again. ”

- Eileen Hodder

“Joy looked after our Alfie (German Shepard) and she is just truly amazing. Alfie stays with Joy every holiday we have. Alfie is so happy 😀 when he stays, he eats well, enjoys the most amazing outdoor adventures. He sleeps in The most comfortable places. 🤗 We get pictures and videos which is so heart warming and reassuring when leaving our loved Alfie. I truly can’t recomend Joy enough. Thank you 😊 so much for such outstanding care. ”

- Michelle

“My dogs were appointed a PetStay sitter who was perfect for their needs. Joy was a kind and diligent cater and sent plenty of photos to me whilst they were in her care. The vetting process to ascertain my dogs needs was excellent and I would have no hesitation in using PetStay again. ”

- Kerry Hardman

“My puppy Prince stayed with Judith & her hubby in Bacup. We were so pleased that Judith could take him at short notice because we didn't want to put Prince in Kennels. Linda introduced us via Petstay & from the first few minutes we knew that Judith was the right person to take my boy. Judith was knowledgeable, kind, caring & firm. She made us feel relaxed about going away; up to then I was very nervous. I was so grateful to have Prince stay with such a lovely lady where he could play with her dogs & have fun for a week. I would recommend Petstay & Judith to all dog owners.”

- Maureen Mahon

“As a first time user of petstay with our cocker Sophie I would like to say how impressed and pleased we are with the entire service. Sophie stayed with Bob and Lyn and they have been exceptionally kind and good with her. Nothing has been too much trouble and they were very friendly and approachable. Sophie is back now and very content - a good sign that all has gone well. Thank you to Linda for booking us in so efficiently and of course to Bob and Lyn - we hope this is the start of a great partnership ! ”

- Trish Coutts

“Stanley’s few days with Pauline from PetStay was very successful from the outset. The initial intro meeting filled me with confidence that Stanley would be happy and made welcome at his PetStay B&B, and so it proved. Loved getting the text & photos updating me of his activities. All in all a very satisfying and stress free experience for all concerned”

- John Sirkett

“Thank you so much. Teddy came home happy and relaxed after a week with Chris in Haslingden and it helped us to have a lovely holiday with no worries about him.”

- Eileen

“Would highly recommend Karen she cared for our dog Ernie impeccably and treated him like her own. ”

- Paul

“Our little girl Poppy loved her mini break at Pauline's. It was plain to see that Pauline and her husband had looked after her so well and had given her lots of affection. I can't praise highly enough 😀”

- Lorraine Myers

“Brodie really enjoyed his stay even though he has a tendency to be overdependent on his family. The second visit was even better as he already recognised a friend and went into the house wagging his tail and making a fuss of both the carers. Bronwen”

- Bronwen Bunting

“Visited our dog carer prior to leaving her for 3 nights, she made herself at home straightaway by going upstairs, then proceeded in making herself comfortable on the rug!! Overall she was no trouble, a little bit stressed during the night. Our dog carer would be happy to have her stay again and we would gladly recommend PetStay.”

- Christine Stansfield

“This is the first time we have used this service and I would highly recommend anyone who wants their dog to be looked after to use Petstay. Billy the border collie loved his little holiday and I can't thank Linda enough for making her home his home. ”

- Nicola leishman

“My two dogs Alfie and Charlie recently stayed with Brian and Ian for 2 weeks. We got to meet them with the dogs prior to making the booking, this put us at ease as we could see where the dogs would be staying and meet the hosts in person. From the moment we met them you could tell that they clearly enjoyed looking after these pets. Througout our holiday we got regular updates and pictures via whatsapp, this put our mind at rest knowing they had settled well. Brian and Ian treated them like their own dogs, I couldn't have asked for better hosts. Linda was very helpful when I first contacted her, she made the process very easy and matched my dogs to hosts that were appropriate for them, there big dogs and need lots of exercise ! Would absolutely use them again and would highly recommend to family and friends. Thank you for taking such good care of our pets x Debbie and Matt ”

“We used Pet Stay for the first time last week and we couldn't be happier. Brent and his family took amazing care of Lola. Thank you. ”

- Lynne

“Linda arranged for our Frenchie, Percy, to spend 24 days with Brian and Ian. They were wonderful carers. When we collected him it was obvious that he had been very well looked after and properly fed and exercised. We were sent almost daily pictures of him with Brian and Ian, often on trips out to parks and doggy friendly cafe's etc. accompanied with their very patient Schnauzer, Lucy. It made a HUGE difference to our own holiday to know that Percy was being so well cared for. We cannot thank Linda, Brian and Ian enough!! We have just booked him back in for 20 days in Autumn. Look out Lucy! :-)”

- Chris Duckworth

“Myla, our Akita has just spent a wonderful week with Gerard. I feel soo lucky to have found him. He kept us updated throughout our holiday with info & pictures. Myla requires lots of medication which Gerard soon mastered the knack of administering. We’re all very much looking forward to her next stay. Thanks so much 5* service. ”

- Janet

“Archie was very well looked after by joy. He came back settled and very happy . So much so he’s already booked in later in the year. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone this service so much better than kennels.”

- Ian Hills

“Will definitely use PetStay again and hopefully Hayley will be free to look after my girls next time. Would definitely recommend Hayley she is a wonderful carer, after initially feeling anxious about leaving my girls (one has lots of special needs) she put me at ease and I felt quite relaxed about leaving my girls with her. Five star service.”

- Suzanne

“Our 4 year old Bichon cross spent a week with Keith and Sue in Bolton. Sue kept me updated and on our return when picking lily up, after greeting me she then ran back to Sue! We could see how much they loved having her and looked after her so well, I think Lily was a bit fed up when we got her home!”

- Rita Boardall

“Another great stay experience for our dogs. Thank you Linda for organising.”

- Mr Beecham

“Highly recommended. My chocolate Labrador is looked after like a family member.”

- Adele Walton

“Have used Pet Stay twice now for our Siberian Husky and would highly recommend. Both homes have been perfect for our dog (who is now too old for kennels). In particular we like how we get to go and visit the home with our dog first. Booking is really easy and communication with the carer is great whilst we were away. Would highly recommend. ”

- Ruth Cull

“We never hesitate to use Petstay for Truffles when we go on holiday. We can relax knowing that our lovely dog is well cared for and spoiled by her holiday parents just as we do at home.”

“We were really happy with Petstay and would highly recommend! Linda put us in contact with Joy really quickly and everything was sorted out without any hassle.Our black Labrador Freddy had a great time, I don't think he wanted to come home. Joy kept us updated with photos, messages and videos and we didn't worry about him at all whilst we were away as we could see he was being taken great care of. Joy was absolutely brilliant and we'll definitely be booking him in again next time we go away. Thanks! ”

- Mel and Stephen

“Max has had his third stay with Caroline in Darwen, when we arrived he was so happy and excited to see Caroline again he settled in straight away. We know Max is in safe hands with Caroline and he is well cared for and had lots of walks and cuddles. Max enjoys his holiday just as much as we do and Caroline sent us some lovely photos and updates. Thank you Caroline and Petstay , we will definitely be booking Max a holiday again. ”

- Cath and Jeff

“Petstay have been great. We contacted them to have our 12 year old dog pip looked after whilst we got married we had been let down by another service.Linda sorted us out a sitter for Pip who is nervous with new people. The first careers fell through due to a tragic event in their lives. Linda rearranged for us to do another meet up visit with new carers which was successful. Pip stayed with Judith and John and their two staffi girls she was so settled and calm when we collected her. Judith messaged me during the stay as she knew how worried I was letting me know that pip was ok. It was such a success that we have already booked pip back in with Judith and John. Thank you to you all. Sue Andy and Pip xx x🐶”

- Sue and Andy

- Chris

“A big thank you to Keith and Anne for taking such wonderful care of our very much loved dog Matilda. This was the first time we have left her in 7 years with anyone other than family so we were understandably a little nervous but we need not have worried. The love and affection Keith and Anne showed Matilda was much appreciated by both us and Matilda. We couldn't have asked for anything more and are really greatful to them and would thoroughly recommend both them and the PetStay service.”

- Noel Sharpe

“Many thanks to janet & colin for looking after our Jax.I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone as a very caring couple as he certainly appears to have enjoyed his stay with them.Thanks Maria & Graham”

- graham bancroft

“We used PetStay for the first time recently and have booked in for another week, we will be able to go on holiday and feel at ease leaving our Border Collie Ben with Judith one of Linda's carers. On the initial meeting it was great to see Judith with her own dogs, they were very friendly and welcomed Ben into their home, even sharing their toys with him! I would recommend PetStay to all dog owners as a kinder alternative to kennels. ”

- Alex & Hannah Smith

“Bella the black Labrador always comes back from a Pet Stay visit happy and looking well groomed and cared for. Linda goes the extra mile to find suitable carers for her and we have been very happy with Pet Stay over the last few years. ”

- Kate Willis

“I can thoroughly recommend this service. It was the first time we had left our dogs with somebody who wasn't a family member. It was obvious that my two dogs had been well cared for and they showed no signs of distress when we picked them up It is so reassuring to know that they are being looked after in someone's home rather than being kennelled. What a wonderful service. I won't hesitate to use it again Marilyn Hedges ”

- Marilyn Hedges

“Third visit for our 2 dogs to Ian and Caron and I can't praise them highly enough. They are determined to follow the dogs normal routine to the extent of having their crates in their bedroom as we do at home. The dogs were so pleased to see them again and ran straight in. They were not at all bothered when we left and we could tell that they had very well cared for when we picked them up. Ian and Caron clearly love welcoming dogs into their home and it makes us feel that we can enjoy our holidays without worrying about their wellbeing. Already booked twice for 2017!”

- Claudine McSorlet

“Very impressed with the service and care provided for our dog George whilst we were away. We enjoyed our holiday so much more knowing that he was being wonderfully cared for. Thank you Linda for your help in arranging everything at such short notice, and a big thank you to Susan for looking after George.”

- Susan Fulton

“Our dog Ruby stayed with Chris in Haslingden . It is the first time she has been left with someone who is not family and obviously had a good time. Chris was very good with her and we were able to enjoy our holiday without worrying.”

- Karen Mealor

- Judith Newsham (Tobi)

“My cairn terrier, Murphy, had a wonderful time with Kris and Steve while we were away. We had some updates sent over and when we picked him up he barely realised we had arrived he was enjoying himself so much. I am so happy with how well he was treated and how relaxed Murphy was the whole way through. I will definitely be using them again.”

- Nicole Burnett

“I can't recommend pet stay enough.. my beautiful fur baby Ruby went to stay with the lovely Isabel from Clitheroe. I had to leave her for 2 whole weeks for the very first time. She was spoilt and had an amazing time.. Isabel was just lovely..a massive 10/10! ”

- mandy

“we have just been on holiday and our dog stayed with Anne & Keith, they are amazing carers and Coco was more than at home, they treated him just like there own which is what you want when leaving your beloved pet with someone, we had a wonderful holiday knowing that Coco was safe, happy and being well looked after. Would highly recommend using Petstay the best decision we have made - I have booked my next years holidays in to make sure he can be cared for by Anne & Keith again. thanks again Jackie& Paul”

- Jackie Travis

“Rolo is an elderly dog and was so ill with stress after his last kennel stay we needed an alternative. Pet stay proved a brilliant solution. Rolo stayed 2 weeks with Maureen in Blackburn and was spoiled rotten. He came home relaxed and happy. I wish we had discovered this service earlier.”

- Lesley Kennedy

“Miah had all home comforts during her stay with Olwen and Rochelle. I had peace of mind, and on my return, could see Miah was happy with her stay.”

- Eileen Webster

“This is the first time I have left my pooch with anyone other than family or friends. I have to say that Joy was absolutely fantastic and really looked after Ozzi, so much so I have had a sulky dog since she came home. I was a little worried due to my dog being blind and having lots of allergies but this didn't phase Joy at all and there were no problems. The whole booking process was straight forward and the meet and greet appointment does put your mind at ease. I will definitely use this Petsyay again.”

- Anne

“Would definitely recommend PetStay. Our Ludo isn't happy in kennels so we tried PetStay (Debi) for a recent weekend stay. Had a pre-meet to make sure everything would be fine. After the weekend you could tell Ludo had a great time and felt really at home with Debi. We so felt so much better leaving him this time and would definitely have Ludo stay there again.”

- Kitty Millard

“We highly recommend Pet Stay who put us in touch with Caroline from Darwen. She had our girls Dizzy and Jazz for a week, and we can honestly say she was brilliant with them and made us feel at ease when we saw how she interacted with them. She gave us daily updates and sent photos of them enjoying their holiday, which gave us peace of mind and enabled us to enjoy ours. We would like to say a big THANK YOU to Caroline and Linda at Pet Stay for their great service.”

- Pam and Darren Mills

“This is the best service ever! I would highly recommend Pet Stay. Our carers, Ian and Caron, are absolutely amazing; they are so loving with our dogs and our dogs adore them. Our dogs truly had a holiday and even had holiday blues for a couple of days after we collected them! We will definitely be using Pet Stay from now on and in fact, have booked two further sets of dates this year and two more in 2017. Linda at Pet Stay is fantastic - she can't do enough for you. This is the first time we have ever felt totally at ease leaving our dogs. Thank you all so much x”

- Anna and Keith

“My dog Ellie is an old lady and I have been reticent about leaving her with anyone whilst we are away. However, Ellie has stayed with Isabel twice and once with Joy and Lance. Both carers have been brilliant and Ellie has come back rejuvenated. Thanks to all. I would most definitely recommend Petstay as you can "vet" the carers before you commit to letting them look after your dog.”

- Janet

“Really pleased with Jennie who has looked after our dog Chester twice recently, a weekend and then for two weeks while we were on holiday. Had no worries at all leaving him as could tell she loved dogs and would look after him well, maybe even having more attention than he does at home. Jennie is a very friendly person who gave Chester lots of loving care and I think he was sorry to leave her. Linda was very helpful arranging our stay and I would be pleased to use the service again.”

- Anne

“Missy experienced a true home from home for the four weeks she was away on her holiday with Ian and Caron. We received regular messages, updates and photos which ensured we could relax on our holiday knowing an important part of our family was having a great time. The moment I saw her after such an extended separation I knew she was very happy, healthy and relaxed and content to be home again. Thank you for taking such great care of her.”

- Sarah Drake

“Thank you both very much Yvonne and Gerard, for taking such good care of me whilst my mum and dad took a short break. I really enjoyed myself with constant cuddles and lots of love. I enjoyed meeting your daughter and her family too. It really was a home from home and if my mum and dad ever leave me again, I know I will be in very good hands! Missing you. Thank you, Brenda B X ”

- Brenda Beagle

“Would recommend without a shadow of doubt first class George loved it and i am sure he will be back, many thanks Paul and George xx”

- Paul

“Max was a very lucky puppy when Linda matched us with Caroline in Darwen she looked after him as if he were her own. She sent us updates and pictures whilst we were away which was very reassuring that he had settled in . When we picked Max up he had been well cared for he was happy and he had grown in the two weeks we were away. We have already booked Max in to stay with Caroline again. We would highly recommend Caroline and PetStay .”

- Cath and Jeff

“We've used PetStay several times now for Maddie and have always been very happy with the service provided. Maddie is always well cared for and has now stayed a few times with a carer very local to us. Maddie is a very boisterous, energetic dog (due to breed and age) but the carer manages very well. Maddie is always happy and excited and enjoys the company of the carer's own dogs. We have no hesitation in making arrangements again in the future through PetStay.”

- Louise Witts

“Got the best service once again! My dog was ill while I was away. Linda and her cares treated my dog like their own. She took her to hospital and looked after her in the best way possible.I really appreciate all ur help! Many thanks! ”

- Olga

“Absolutely delighted with Milly and Molly's stay at pet stay.went on holiday for 11 days and Milly and Molly went to stay with Ryan Bennett_coupe of Rawtenstall.Not only did Ryan look after my 2 little borders but mum Michelle,dad Richard and Grandma also played a part in their care. It really was home from home for them and really had been taken care of . Was a bit apprehensive about leaving them as never had before but needn't have worried.while away got regular txt and photos off Ryan. Went to collect them on my arrival home and my dogs weren't bothered about coming home. I think that the care that Ryan and his family provided to my dogs while I was away was second to non.Well done to Ryan and family for a job well done we think your all brilliant and would not hesitate to leave Molly and Milly again.”

- Rachael farrelly

“We contacted Linda at Pet stay after a recommendation by a friend who was regularly using this service and was most pleased with the care his dogs had received whilst he was on holiday. Linda quickly found a carer who was willing to look after my dog and arranged a meeting. The carers were lovely, most welcoming and keen to provide my pet with a happy experience whilst we enjoyed our holiday. We returned from holiday and collected our dog, he seemed very at home and relaxed and thoroughly looked like he had really enjoyed his stay. His coat was soft and shiny and he had not lost any weight - a far cry from the usual state he comes home from the kennels. So very pleased with the service received cannot recommend enough will definitely be using Pet Stay every time we go away. Thank you ”
