PetStay - Home Dog Boarding Covering

 Newcastle upon Tyne, North Tyneside & South Northumberland

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

At PetStay - Newcastle upon Tyne, North Tyneside & South Northumberland we’ve carefully selected many caring and affectionate people who will care for your dog while you’re away on holiday. Our dog sitters are all fully insured and 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 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.

About Me

My name is Leigh and I’m here to help North East dog owners find a loving and caring alternative to kennels – ensuring your dogs have a great holiday as well as yourselves!

I live in North Tyneside with my family and our 2 much loved Terriers, Riley the Wire Fox and Aida the Airedale. We’ve owned both our dogs from being puppies and they are a very important part of our family. We want them to be happy, healthy and have fun, especially when we are apart from them. We could never leave our dogs in kennels as it would be too traumatic and distressing for them and us. I know that many dog owners feel the same and so PetStay is the perfect alternative, offering a bespoke home dog boarding service for family dogs - a real home from home for them whilst you’re away.

“My two dogs stayed with carers Julie and John for 9 days whilst I went on a family holiday. It’s the first time I have ever left my dogs in 5 years with anyone other than family. Julie made sure she knew the fine details of their daily routines, she kept me up to date with pictures and texts throughout my holiday and both of my frenchies were right at home! I am over the moon to have found such a great service and have provisionally booked another 3 stays for my dogs. I really struggle to find pet sitters as one of my dogs is very frightened of other dogs but Julie and John made every possible effort to ensure he was happy and settled. Really can not rate this whole service highly enough. Thank you so much :) ”

“My little dog stayed with Julie and John and had a great time, they are caring and thoughtful and he settled straight in away. I got daily updates which were great and I was delighted that he was safe and well cared for. Julie is just lush ”

“COPIED FROM THE WEBSITE: Hi Linda, We just wanted you to know that we collected Upton from Claire yesterday. We are again thrilled that she has taken so much care of him whilst we were away. She kept us updated with emails and photo's which was very reassuring for us. We are so lucky to have found you, and subsequently been directed towards Claire. We will be settled at home for a while, but when we get itchy feet again we will check if Claire is free and book through yourself, if that is okay with you? ”

“COPIED FROM THE WEBSITE: After having a bad experience at a kennel we decided to find some one who would look after Og in their own home as Og suffers with anxiety. I contacted Linda at pet stay who had a very lengthy conversation over the phone with me and put me in touch with a lovely lady called Yvonne. Og and I met Yvonne at her home and we booked for Og to stay. After returning home I collected Og and all I could say was wow. I knew straight away that Og had had a fantastic time with Yvonne and looked very happy. Thank you Linda at pet stay and Thank you Yvonne. We will be recommending and a returning customer. Rachel, August 2017”

“Copied from my website: Thank you so much for looking after Suzy during our wedding. Claire was absolutely lovely and nothing was a problem.

“Copied from my website; I was looking for a place for our boys to stay whilst we were on holiday in June when I came across Petstay North Tyneside. I gave Linda a ring and she asked me a few questions about the boys nature and general day to day routines they have and she placed us with Julie and John Dunn. We visited Julie and John just before the holiday so they could meet Chester and Chico and ask any questions about their care. They were a lovely couple, very approachable and absolutely loved the boys when they met them, so we felt totally at ease that they would be well looked after, with lots of cuddles in a home from home environment, whilst we were on holiday. Julie kept us informed during their stay with updates and photos which was nice and very reassuring. When we picked them up they were totally at ease and it was as if they hadn’t missed us at all!! We have already booked Julie and John for our holiday in August and I’m sure Chester and Chico will be looking forward to seeing them both again! I would highly recommend Petstay to anyone who needs their beloved pooches looked after as the care and attention given by both Linda and her carers is second to none! Thank you Petstay I will definitely be using you for future holidays! Wendy, June 2017”

“Excellent Service We have an elderly GSD X and needed a sitter for a number of dates in June due to family commitments. Linda was wonderful at finding sitters to meet all of our necessary dates when lots of other services couldn't help us. Communication was always prompt clear and friendly and Sharon our sitter was wonderful. On our second visit Bella our dog couldn't wait to get through the door for her holiday, something we had never seen with her before. Very happy to recommend Linda and her services. Thank you Linda (and Sharon!)”

“First of all sorry this is late I went straight back into work form holidays and haven't had a chance untill now! What can I say the whole experience was amazing Linda went out of her way to find the right family to look after my boys we visited two couples and the second were perfect. The dogs fitted right in with her huge garden and lovely friendly atmosphere I knew our worries of leaving them for the first time with non family members had gone! The process was easy and relaxed in the lead up to our holiday which is always very stressful especially when owning your own business time just isn't sonething I have a lot of! I was I totally worried as oscar is a very nervous dog and is scared of other dogs on the lead so was concerned he would be scared of new surroundings and that when he was out he would panic. However he had an amazing no worries at all! Ollie (west highland terrier) and oscar(jack Russel/Westie mix) both had so much fun we had daily updates from Julie of what they had been upto that day with pictures! Which my partner was overjoyed with...they are his first pets so he worries a lot! When we got back from holiday Julie had gone beyond what she had needed to buying another harness as the one we had didn't work which was great to hear. The dogs were so happy and clean when we got them back and I think a little down for days after that they were home they had so much fun on their holiday! Please please if you are nervous about it which I was as they are strangers after all book with Julie her and her husband have spoiled our boys and now whenever we go away we will be booking with her. All I can say is book!! You will not regret it!”

“Gus has had a fantastic stay with Jane while our family went away for a long weekend. Both Jane and her husband really welcomed Gus into their home. We were worried as it was the first time we had left Gus and also worried as he has an excitable nature. Jane's experience with dogs absolutely shone through and we wouldn't hesitate to leave him with this lovely family again. Thank you both xx ”
