PetStay - Dog Home Boarding Covering Leicestershire and Rutland Area

Petstay - Leicestershire and Rutland offer licensed home boarding for dogs is an alternative to kennels, providing a less stressful environment for your dog and peace of mind for you whilst you are away on holiday. Home boarding is about your dog being in a comfortable, happy environment in a home with lots of safeguards in place, but without kennels or cages.

When we receive an enquiry we take details about your dog(s) and then carefully match them to one of our trusted dog carers who have been hand-picked by us, interviewed, vetted and insured. We try to find a carer who lives close to you, but more importantly we choose one who will be most suitable for your dog(s). Next, we organise a no-obligation meeting for you to visit the carer to make sure you and your dog are happy with the carer we have chosen.

While staying with one of our carers, your dog will be treated as one of the family, and all your dog’s normal routines will be kept. Only dogs from the same household are boarded together.

About Me
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 off them as they don’t fit in my suit case! 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.

pet care


“Rolo our 1.5yr old Cockapoo has been staying with Penny & Steve for just over a year now and he absolutely loves it. He has had two lengthy stays and an overnight and every time, he races to the front door, knowing where he is going, so I guess he likes going! Penny takes such good care of Rolo and I can go on holiday, relaxed, knowing he is in the safest of hands. She takes him on long walks, rides in the car and he loves exploring her garden (and house) and finding things that had been forgotten. Penny calls it 'being busy'. I call it being mischievious! Penny send me regular updates and photos of his adventures which my Daughter loves receiving. Recently he stayed and needed some medication giving and a wound keeping an eye on and Penny took excellent care of him and the vet was really pleased when we returned for a check up. Thanks Penny. ”

“I have been using Petstay for just under 3 years. My two dogs recently stayed with Amy in Mid July and she was brilliant. She kept me up to date with photos and texts and my dogs had a great time. I would 100% recommend Petstay to anyone thinking of using them. The service is more personal and gives me peace of mind knowing my dog is being cared for and kept in their own routine rather than sending them to a kennel. ”

“Our two Jack Russell dogs, Harry and Rosie love going to stay with their carer Helen whilst we go on holiday. They are thoroughly spoilt and nothing is too much trouble. We are so grateful that we have a loving holiday home for them to stay on their holiday.”

- Elizabeth Sandilands

“We used PetStay for the first time a couple of weeks ago. We were very anxious leaving macy with a stranger in a strange place but we were able to arrange a visit prior to leaving her for the full week. Chris was amazing and she spoilt macy! We were sent updates which put us as ease which was great particularly as we had gone away to get married. Knowing macy was happy and settled allowed us not to worry. When we returned, Chris gave us an update on how macy had been and it was clear she had looked after her. We will definitely be using Chris again and would highly recommend this service to our friends and family! ”

“My dog Alfie had a lovely time staying with Maria and her family for 2 weeks in October. He was given lots of cuddles and attention and was taken for some good long walks which he enjoys. Maria sent me regular updates and photos so I could see how much he was enjoying his "holiday". He is going to have another holiday with her again in March, which I am sure he will really enjoy.”

- Alex Burgess

“October 12th -20th 2018, Spike our chocolate Labrador stayed with Sarah and her family for the first time. From the photos we received whilst away we saw he was having a fantastic time. This made our holiday even better as we had no concerns whatsoever about him, because we knew that he was safe, secure and well cared for. Great service! ”

“Our Bedlington has stayed again with Chris and John. He treats their home like his second home and he loves them both. He rushes in to greet them when we arrive. When we come to collect Bertie, he is always happy , healthy and busy with his toys. We can go away without worries because we know that Chris and John will provide all the care that Bertie needs - and they can cope with his stubborn ways too! We hope we can always use Chris and John,s services in the future, ”

- Jenny Wintle

“We have been using Petstay for several years now. Every time we leave Lotti and Willa, our two German Short Haired Pointers, with Peter we can tell that they are very happy to stay with him and his own labrador Beth. They always settle in very well and we know that they are very well looked after. Peter takes them for long walks and we are more than happy that he keeps them on their leads as they are strong hunting dogs. Peter even buys them tennis balls to play with in his garden. Its a real home from home for them and we can relax on holiday knowing they are safe and happy. ”

- Diane Whiting

“Molly loved her stay with Yvonne and Peter while we were on our holiday, we had no worries what so ever as we received updates and pictures throughout the week. It felt like she was being cared for by a member of our family. Already booked with Yvonne for 2 more stays, we would highly recommend both Yvonne and Peter for the great care and love they show and also Jane for arranging it all. ”

- Chris Murray

“Arnold had another lovely stay with Barry and his family. They are such nice people and really look after Arnold like he’s there own dog. They have a lovely garden for Arnold to use and take him in lovely walks. I have bo worries at all leaving Arnold with Barry while we go away. Arnold loves staying there and could not get out of the car quick enough when he knew where he was!! Thank you Barry, family and Petstay x”

- Rachel Dillon

“We found Petstay online, from the very start from our initial online enquiry followed by a phone call from Jane we were very happy that our 5 month puppy would be looked after as if she was at home. We didn’t want to try kennels so this was the perfect alternative, Yvonne and her husband we found to be perfect carers and we have booked already for 2 further stays and we would have no hesitation to recommend Petstay to anybody ”

- Chris Murray

“Louie our Labradoodle had a wonderful time with his Petty carer.... She and her lovely family ensured that he had a very special time as part of their household. We went on holiday without any concerns whatsoever about him, knowing that he was safe, secure and would be well cared for. Great service!”
