PetStay - Home Dog Boarding Covering Huddersfield, Halifax and Barnsley

Welcome to PetStay Huddersfield and Halifax and Barnsley, my name is Lauren and I’m here to help local dog owners find a loving and caring alternative to kennels, whilst they enjoy their much-deserved holidays. Our carers will provide that home from home for your beloved friend and treat your dog like their own.

Having been a carer for many years prior to running my own team at PetStay, I understand the importance of finding the perfect holiday home for your beloved pets and that you need peace of mind that they are in the safest of hands

We are licensed and insured to take care of your dog while you are away. Our experienced carers are very carefully selected, meeting the strict criteria set out by Defra and the local authority, and only the most suitable people will be approved to become PetStay carers.

At PetStay we know from experience that your dog will be happier and more settled in their own daily routine, it is my job to find the carer that will be able to most suit your dog’s needs. Any stay will be exclusive to your dog, we never mix dogs from different households and our guest dogs are always walked on the lead.

Dog Home Stay in Yorkshire

I will arrange a no obligation meeting for you and your dog to visit your potential carer, so you will see the home and garden your dog will holiday in and you can discuss all elements of the stay.

We will provide a “holiday list” of essentials to be packed to make your dog’s holiday the most comfortable and stress free as possible, such as toys, food, bedding and not forgetting their favourite treats. Our carers will provide the love, the hugs and cuddles.

Please contact me, if you would like to find the perfect holiday home for your precious pet or if you have any questions regarding our service.

I’d also love to hear from you if you would be interested in joining our team of lovely carers where you can take care of dogs in your own home.

“I left my old boy "Chad" (age 12) with Alan and Tina for a week whilst I went on holiday. They were absolutely brilliant with him, he had a lovely time there. He was relaxed and happy when he got home, as usually he gets slightly "doggy depressed" when I leave him, but not this time it was as if I had never been away. I would highly recommend PetStay and will definitely use them again. Kind regards Gill Wearing ”

- Gill Wearing

“Our dog Pepper was looked after by Linda and did a brilliant job. Everything ran smoothly from the initial contact and arrangements with Petstay to picking Pepper up after we returned. Very well done. ”

- Darryl Gill

“Just arrived home to a very happy dog. Jill and Howard have done a fantastic job in looking after my best friend”

- Andrew Jordan

“Millie had a great time staying with Barry and Lynda, I would definitely recommend them. I couldn’t fault them, Barry even slept on sofa when Millie was unsettled, not many people would do that - so a big “Thank You” to Barry and to Lauren at PetStay. It really does put our minds at rest when we are on holiday knowing Millie’s taken care of. Once again thank you xxxx”

- Lauren Slack

“Our elderly Staffie, Lily, stayed with Joanne for a fortnight recently and it was the first time we had left her outside the family. Any worries I had disappeared very quickly and I could see that she was really happy and looked after extremely well. Joanne and her family love dogs and did everything to ensure that Lily was cared for to the highest standard, had a great time and was treated like a princess. It was also very reassuring to receive the regular updates and pictures. I can highly recommend Joanne and would like to thank her and Lauren for making the experience so positive, professional and tailored to Lily's needs. We will definitely be using their service again.”

- Nicola, Halifax

“Tina and Al were very welcoming and attentive to our dogs needs. A professional service that made us feel very relaxed as we went on our summer holiday. We will definitely use PetStay again. ”

- Neil

“I have used Petstay many times over the last 10 years for both of my dogs. Most recently in September 2018, Jingo stayed with Peter and his own dog in Barnsley for 6 days and had a great time. When I went to pick him up Jingo was his usual happy relaxed self so he obviously felt very at home with Peter and Yak. Thanks Sally ”

- Sally

“Charlie and Joanne bonded from the moment they met, which was a great relief as Charlie had never been left with someone he didn’t know. Joanne was great, she looked after Charlie as though he was her own pet. She kept to Charlie’s routine, walking him regularly (despite the awful weather), keeping to his set mealtimes and most importantly treating him as a member of the family. I would definitely recommend Pet Stay as a “home away from home”. It was good to know that Pet Stay only allow one dog (or two if from the same family) to stay with the chosen carer for the duration of the stay. My thanks to Joanne and to Lauren for making my holiday (and Charlie’s) so enjoyable and stress free. One happy dog!!!!! Kinds regards Joyce ”

- Lauren Slack

“Our dog Blossom stayed with Audrey who was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. From first meeting Audrey, you could tell she was a dog lover. Blossom also took to Audrey’s husband and son straightaway as well. I felt very comfortable that Blossom was being well cared for and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Audrey and PetStay 100%. Blossom is holidaying again with Audrey and her family very soon.”

- Sharon

“Both Julie and I would like to thank you for such kind and tender care of our dogs Mitsy and Pebbles. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Katherine was the perfect choice to care for the dogs, she was caring, loving and treat our dogs as if they were her own. She regularly messaged with updates as we were on our cruise, so we could enjoy our cruise without worry of the dogs.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Katherine is a credit to your company and would without hesitation recommend Katherine to anyone wanting to have their dog cared for. Well done. Julie and Kevin”

- Julie and Kevin

“Having had previous bad experiences with kennels, we’ve wanted to feel that our dogs have a holiday when we do, rather than a trip to a prison camp! We’ve used PetStay a number of times over the last five years and have always been impressed with the quality of the care our dogs have had. Our latest carer (Jill) really has gone above and beyond in terms of making our dogs feel part of her family and has taken the time to send us photos of the dogs enjoying themselves when they are with her. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend PetStay and outstanding carers!”

- Ian Mackenzie

“This is the second time that our dogs have stayed with Katherine and Jason through Petstay. We would never leave our dogs in a kennel, particularly our toy poodle who usually gets very stressed and distressed if we try and leave him with anyone so we haven't had a foreign holiday for a long time. At Christmas we tried leaving our 2 dogs with Katherine and Jason for a short break. The texts and photos of the dogs very happy and settled meant we could really enjoy our holiday. This time, as soon as we pulled up outside Katherine and Jason's house the dogs started jumping around really excitedly which was so reassuring about how much they enjoyed staying with them. Scooby and Ben have exactly the same routine as they do at home which is lovely. It is wonderful to now be able to go on holiday knowing that the dogs are being so well looked after and having a great time. I highly recommend Petstay who carefully match carers to your dog/s. ”

- Jacqueline Montague

“Cody stayed with Esther and her family while we were on holiday for 10 days. He was very well looked after and seems to have had a wonderful time. Cody came home happy and jolly. It was such a huge relief to meet Esther and her husband before we went away which meant we could relax on holiday knowing Cody was well looked after. We will definitely return to Petstay the next time we need Cody taking care of when we are away.”

- Maxine Scott

“Ned spent 12 days with Lin and Phil whist we went away for our summer holidays. When we returned to pick him up it was clearly obvious that he had been well cared for and had been very happy. Thank you Lin and Phil. I would also like to thank Lauren for the patient and efficient way she dealt with my initial concerns and finding a wonderful holiday home for Ned.”

- Gary Kerr

“Lottie was very well looked after by Mandy and her family, I received regular updates by text which put me at ease, I won’t hesitate to rebook Lottie in with Mandy I again, thank you ”

- Alison

“Really nervous about leaving Riley as it was her first time being away from us. Betty and vince were absolutely brilliant with her they text me to say how she was doing. I would definitely recommend them and Riley will definitely being staying with them again. Thanks ”

- R. Bostwick

“We contacted Lauren who put us in touch with Jackie and Ian, they were amazing and looked after Ozzy like their own. He obviously enjoyed his stay as although was pleased to see us was not in a hurry to leave. They have the most amazing home and garden for their boarders its no wonder they enjoy their stay. I would highly recommend and Ozzy will be going back when we book our next family holiday. ”

- Gina Brookes

“What can we say, we contacted Petstay and Lauren put us in touch with Betty & Vince. They are such a lovely couple who looked after Sydney for the night, as if he was their own dog. We instantly got on with Betty & Vince and we are very greatful to Lauren for dealing with our needs regarding Sydney and his strict diet. Betty & Vince, we are looking forward to seeing you again when you look after Sydney later in the year. (PS tried to put a pic of Sydney, but couldn't using iPad)”

- Bev & Mick

“We used PetStay for the first time in July; our four year old whippet Bluebell stayed with Joanne and her family for two nights whilst we attended our son's wedding. This was Bluebell's first stay away from home - Joanne was great at putting Bluebell at ease, and kept us updated with messages and photos, which was appreciated. Bluebell was very relaxed when we picked her up, and had obviously enjoyed her little holiday! Many thanks to Joanne, and also to Lauren at PetStay for helping us to arrange everything.”

- Tracey & Andy Laughton

“We used Petstay for the first time in July 2018 and our Golden Retriever, Monty stayed wtih Peter. We immediately felt comfortable leaving Monty with someone other than family for the first time and knew that he was going to be well looked after. On our return Monty was happy and relaxed, had been well looked after and had been on some lovely walks. Lauren was excellent to deal with from our initial enquiry and was extremely efficient throughout the whole process. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending Petstay. ”

- Julie Howard

“First time using using petstay, would recommend them, Ellie had a lovely time with Linda, who looked after her, will definitely be using her again. ”


“We have used Pet Stay twice now for our daft Cockapoo Sophie. The first time she stayed with Karen who Sophie settled in with lovely. This last stay unfortunately Karen couldn't have her so we were told about Dawn and her family. We took Sophie there twice before we left her and she was great. She can be quite warey of strangers but she made herself at home straight away. She had a lovely time being spoilt by the two girls and dad. Can highly recommend Pet Stay and I will definately use again.”

- Mary Fox

“Asked plenty of questions to find the best sitter for Oscar. Lauren was friendly and she kept going until she found Katherine. Good that we all met Katherine before Oscar's stay. Katherine was fantastic again asking lots of questions about Oscar including eating and exercise. All in all a great experience.”

- Jacqueline Hague

“I had never used petstay before and as with all new things you tend to be a bit careful but I can say with confidence that the service was very good, I was given a lot of information and then went to see the home boarder at her home, I left with no concerns Mandy clearly understood my dogs behaviour which if you didn’t understand them could look like difficult behaviour. They appeared to have a really good stay and Mandy told us they had been trouble at all and in fact joked that she would not give them back! I’m sure I will feel very confident when using this service again.”

- Gail

“My cavalier stayed with Gina and he was really well looked after. I dont like to leave him when we go away but I would not worry about him next time. Would highly recommend petstay. ”

- Debra

“My husband and I took Kody to meet Peter and his dog Yak, we were immediately impressed with his friendly caring nature and had no hesitation in leaving Kody with him while we were on holiday. We were highly delighted with the care given and could tell on our return he had been well looked after. I’m sure Kody will be happy to go for his next stay and we can have piece of mind , knowing we are leaving him in good hands. We would recommend Pet Stay with no hesitation..”

- Lynn Bence

“Excellent service from Lauren, in arranging a nine day stay for our Cocker Spaniel Woody, with Betty & Vince. They did a marvellous job of looking after Woody whilst we were away, and he came back to us completely unstressed. I wouldn't hesitate to use their services again, next time we go away on holiday.”

- Duncan Whitworth

“Jack and Sasha were spoiled rotten by Zoe and Rob while we were away and will be happy to stay with them again, perfect solution to what to do with our fur babies while we're away, thank you.”

- Lauree

“My 8 year old Yorkie Peppa stayed Zoe one of Petstay's lovely boarders whilst we were away for almost two weeks. Peppa is very set in her ways and has fear aggression with other dogs and people so I was worried about her staying with someone new in an area that was also new to her. I needn't have worried one bit! Peppa was treat like a princess by Zoe. Walked three times per day in the local park, at times picked by Zoe when she knew it wouldn't be very busy so that Peppa didn't feel threatened by other dogs. Whilst Zoe was at work (short shifts so dog is never left for long) her elderly mum would pop over the road and sit in the garden with Peppa and give her treats. Peppa soon figured this out and started sitting by the gate watching for her! I got regular updates through WhatsApp with lovely pictures so I could see her enjoying herself. I would not hesitate to book with Zoe again.”

- Sharon Haigh

“Our little dog Scruffles has stayed with Deb on a couple of occasions now. We were abit worried the first time we left her as she’s a rescue dog but it was clear on picking up that she had been well looked after and she was happy. Scruffles has recently stayed again and we knew she would be fine, again upon picking up she was her happy usual self. It’s a great alternative to kennels and we will continue to use.”

- Beth Hunter

“Betty an vince are a lovely caring couple would deffo recommend millie loved them too great service top marks thank you”

- D haigh

“Well what a find on google. Amazing Lauren who from first contact last year we have found her professional and very caring. She introduced us to Jackie and Ian who are absolutely fabulous we cannot praise and Thank them enough. Tobi loves going to stay with them and they love him as much as we do. He has stayed quite a lot now and for one holiday it was over 5 weeks and we came home to a very chilled and happy boy. So very happy with the entire set up and long may it continue. Thankyou.”

- Steve Fox

“Maxwell went to stay with a lovely family on the estate where we live. Booking him in was very thorough and I was confident he would be looked after. He came home smelling lovely - Dawn had kindly bathed him after he rolled in something smelly. I would not hesitate to book with pet stay in the future as it is a home from home experience. Thank you.”

- Alison Senior

“I couldn't have asked for a better experience leaving my young dog Bo with Jill, Howard & Carl for almost 2 weeks. They clearly pulled out all the stops to make his holiday feel like a home from home. And went out of their way to keep me reassured and treat him like their own He has come back to me happy, healthy and well loved. Thank you! ”

- Louise P.

“I have recently used Petstay for the first time and I would highly recommend them. From everything from first contact to the care my dog received was exceptional. My dog can be nervous in some situations and I was worried about leaving her with someone I didn’t know but as soon as I met the carer she was matched with I knew she would be in safe hands. All Communication was clear and it was lovely to go and meet the carer in advance. My dog was treated like their own dog for the duration of her stay and she was happy and relaxed when I went to colllect her so I couldn’t have asked for more. ”

- Sarah Gerrard

“Hi Lauren, Just a quick note to say thanks for sorting a carer for Coco at such short notice. I have never seen her so settled in such a short space of time, she was very much at home. Best regards, Martin ”

- Martin Wydell

“I adopted my beautiful rescue greyhound, Amber, in July of 2017. Very soon after that I had two occasions where I needed pet sitting services, one for a long weekend in Scotland and one, unexpectedly, for two weeks when my mother in Canada had an accident. Lauren found Gina from Bradford straight away and as soon as Amber and I visited I had enormous confidence that Amber would be well cared for. I came back on both occasions to a happy dog and knew for certain that she had all the care and affection she needed while I was gone. More recently I had another two weeks abroad and Amber stayed with Rachel, a new dogsitter in the Halifax area. She settled in very well and Rachel sent me loads of photos while I was away to keep me in the loop which was made me smile to see Amber so happy. A new dogsitter is in the offing for an unexpected two day trip to Amsterdam and I look forward to another great experience. One thing that has been brilliant about Lauren and PetStay is that she has been able to accommodate my last-minute requirements with terrific dogsitters which takes away a great deal of the anxiety I feel when I have to leave Amber. I definitely recommend PetStay's services and my dogsitters in particular.”

- Leigh-Anne

“We have used PetStay on numerous occassions now for our fur baby Eddie, Audrey and her family who he stays with are ‘simply the best’, I couldn’t ask for anyone better to look after him while we are away. Eddie is always happy to see them when we drop him off and Audrey and family always make a good fuss of him, they send us photos while we are away and texts too to let us know how he is and it is lovely to see how settled he is on the pictures, usually cuddled up with them on the settee asleep. Thank you PetStay for finding us such a wonderful family to look after our precious boy !!”

- Paul and Zoe

“Brillant service, contacted them with very short notice about our need for a sitter after being let down by another sitter. Completely took the stress out of finding someone that met our requirements and was available in the local area. Whilst we were away, Daisy was really well looked after and it was lovely to return to a very happy dog. Can’t recommended this service highly enough, will definitely use them again.”

- Kim

“This was our fifth time using PetStay & as always everything was fine. Our four year old Lurcher Coco stayed with Joanne Wright who made her very welcome & kept our minds at rest over the holiday with regular updates. PetStay always offer a first class service.”

- Martin Wydell

“We placed our puppy with Lin and Phil who were brilliant with her. She is an 8 month old spaniel so I was apprehensive, but I need not have worried she was looked after perfectly. I would recommend PetStay to anyone. Thank you Lauren for looking after us so well and also to Lin and Phil for doing such a good job in looking after Rini. ”

- Collette Bone

“We have used Pet Stay a few times with Honey we cannot recommend their services enough, but the last time we needed to find someone we could trust to look after her for a extended period, the care she received from Lauren and Jeremy was totally amazing, they gave her a real home from home, Lauren kept in touch while we were away to let us know how Honey was doing, but we need not have bothered as she was completely at home in her surroundings. Since she has come back to us she has settled back in without any problems proving that she had being cared for in exactly same as would have.”

- John Hodgson

“Lauren found the perfect homestay for our dog Nifty. Gina was absolutely great, Nifty loved her, she was calm and happy while we were away. What a relief to find such a perfect match. Very happy.”

- julie harries

“We were very worried about leaving our 2 dogs for an extended period while we visited our daughter in New Zealand. My eldest dog is 13, blind and diabetic and the youngest had never been left except with close family. Lauren at Pet Stay arranged for us to meet Joanne and Darren who were absolutely amazing. Joanne even gave Jack his insulin injections twice a day and seemed genuinely sad to see the dogs go home. I couldn't recommend them enough to anyone who wants their dogs to be looked after as if they were family. I received regular updates and photographs which made being away from them so much easier.Thank you so much Lauren, Joanne and Darren.”

- Jacquie

“We would highly recommend Lauren and the services Petstay have to offer. We were let down by our original homeboarder a few weeks before our holiday. I rang Lauren in a panic and she assured me she could help and came back to me straight away with a variety of homeboarders who could look after our dog. We are so pleased we used PetStay as our homeboarder Amanda was absolutely brilliant. We got to do a meet and greet Amanda and her dogs before our holiday so that we knew our dog, Trent would be in safe hands - in fact when we got back I don't think he wanted to come home as he got to spend time with two wonderful greyhounds at Amanda's home. We would highly recommend PetStay to anyone looking for home boarding. Thank you again Lauren. ”

- Amanda Gibbon

“Having to board 4 dogs was a big ask, especially over Christmas, but Petstay found us two lovely carers who looked after them really well. I couldn't have asked for more from both ladies and the dogs were very happy. I wouldn't hesitate to use Petstay again.”

- Angela Howard

“We left our very bouncy and spoilt boxer Lola with Joanne for 12 days She was well cared For and spoilt by Joanne and her husband, I would be very happy to leave her again. ”

- Beverley farnsworth

“Joanne and Darren treated Oscar as if he was their own. Oscar felt totally at peace, I got regular updates and was pleased to hear he would be missed when the week was over, it just proved joanne and Darren are completely devoted. I have no hestitation in recommending joanne and Darren. Thank you for taking the worry out of him being away from home. ”

- Lara Betts

“Just wanted to send you a quick e-mail to say that Russ absolutely loved staying with Audrey. I would highly recommend Audrey to anyone looking for someone to care for their dog. As soon as we arrived we knew that Russ would be very happy with his new surroundings - he settled in straight away (and this is not normal for him at all). Audrey is a lovely lady (and her family too!) who is very personable, kind and a great carer. We will definitely be recommending Audrey to others and we are hoping to book Russ in to stay with her next year. Audrey you were amazing and gave us peace of mind as soon as we met you - thank you. Thank you Lauren for recommending us to this lovely family. Kindest regards Dee and Mark ”

- Dee and Mark

“Just wanted to say thank you for finding us the most perfect carer for Nala we have been absolutely overjoyed with the care given. Geraldine's looked after her like we do and they are the most loveliest family. The updates and photos meant the world to me. You've one excellent carer in Geraldine and her family. We will certainly be booking with you for Geraldine and family from here forth. Thank you for a fabulous service. ”

- Heather

“Just wanted to drop a quick email to say thanks for finding Peter to look after Pepper. He has done a great job, Pepper was well taken care of and had a great stay at Peters, was also good for us as Peter kept us up to date with photo's so we didn't miss her as much. I'd recommend Peter and would most certainly use him again. Many Thanks ”

- Frank

“We have used Petstay on 3 occasions now, the latest carer being Zoe in the Barnsley branch. We have a very large stubborn Labrador, Bailey, who has very particular routines and habits. Zoe absolutely kept to Bailey's routine throughout the two weeks we left him with her and more importantly, she was very loving towards him. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Petstay, they are extremely well organised, professional and worth every penny for the peace of mind I get when I'm away.”

- Annabel Smith

“Our fur baby Bella stayed with Sue and Eddie in July / August - I was worried as this was the first time she wasn't staying with family and didn't know how she'd get on - but I needn't have worried - from our first meeting Sue and Eddie put our worries to rest and I think everyone (dog and humans) had a lovely time - if we go away again Sue and Eddie would be my first call to see if Bella could stay again - thank you so much ”

- Louise Rotchell

“Heidi stayed with Marie Bond and her family in August. It was the first time we had left her with anyone. Setting it up with Pet Stay was easy, Lauren is very helpful. We were apprehensive about leaving Heidi with a carer at first, however, Marie put our minds at ease during our initial look-see visit. It was obvious to us that Heidi would be well looked after during her stay. When we went back to collect her, it was clear to us that Heidi had had a great time and we would not hesitate to have Heidi stay with Marie again in the future. Thank you to Marie and her family.”

- Eric McMillan

“I was very anxious at the thought of leaving Pippi (our beloved Sproodle) with people she didn't know as she is quite the fuss pot and very energetic . Lauren was very careful to find out as much as she could about Pippi before hand and matched her with Jackie and Ian. We went to meet them before our holiday which was very important to me and made me feel more comfortable about leaving her. I have just booked Pippi's 3rd stay with Jackie and Ian so can very happily say that all went very well indeed. Jackie and Ian have been brilliant with Pippi giving her the run of their house and putting up with her obsession with sitting in the window watching rabbits and the long walks.... I feel very confident leaving her in their excellent care. Thank you Petstay. ”

- Rachael Briody

“Our little man Elliot usually stays with family or a friend when we go away but as a Pet Stay carer knowing the high standards we have to meet I was more than happy to use a fellow colleague Dawn when we needed some one to care for him. Elliot loved his stay and had lots of care, attention and long walks from Dawn and her girls, our little man came home a very happy chappy!!”

- Lorraine Whitworth

“Our adorable 9 year old black Labrador Bess has stayed with Marie and her family 3 times this year. Bess became part of the family and seemed very relaxed when we left her and picked her up.The first meeting with carer and thorough form filling to explain your pets preferences and needs are beneficial. I would thoroughly recommend using petstay. For us it made our holidays more enjoyable knowing Bess was enjoying herself and being cared for in a family as she loves being with people. ”

- Jo

“I booked for my dog through Lauren at petstay to stay with Joanne. Lauren was very helpful and matched our dog to stay with Joanne. The whole process was very smooth and easy. I met Joanne and Darren before our holiday, I was very happy to leave my dog, I had no worries at all, we were made very welcome and I could tell they were excited to be taking care of her. Joanne is an amazing carer, we had photos and messages showing what a lovely time she was having. I knew she was in the best hands and we were able to relax and enjoy our holiday. I would definitely use Petstay again and would hope Joanne and a Darren would have Jessie again”

- Elizabeth Longden

“After worrying about placing my 4 furbabies in a strangers care for the first time ever after contacting Lauren I was really put at ease. I met each of my girls carers (had to go to 2 different homes due to council regulations) and I was happy. They both contacted me throughout my holiday to let me know my girls were ok. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Would defo recommend and will defo use them again. ”

- Cass Bowman

“My dog jess had a lovely time with mike her career while I was away for a week - she settled in really well - mike showed me photos on his phone of jess when I came back she was sooo relaxed !!!! Thankyou Lauren and mike ”

- Amanda Coleman

“Maggie has stayed with her carers Sue and Eddie twice now and will be going on her holiday again at Sue & Eddies in August. The 2nd time she stayed she ran into their house which goes to show how happy and settled she was. We really worried about leaving her the first time but never again. Couldn't recommend this Service more. Thanks Sue & Eddie and of course Laren.”

- Marie Boul

“We have two dogs Sparky and Molly. Sparky is an old chap now so needs a little extra care, they have just been to stay with Lauren and I can not recommend them highly enough. Their service is brilliant, it's really like a home from home. Lauren and husband Jez work like a team and I would recommend them to anyone going on holiday, feeling your dogs are in safe hands is priceless, many thanks.”

- Barry havison

“Daisy our sheltiepoo had a lovely time with Joanne and her family, wouldn't hesitate to recommend petstay. We are on holiday again in July and know we will have confidence and peace of mind while away. ”

- Mac McKechnie

“We're usually fortunate to be able to leave Molly with family or friends, but as it was our wedding all our usual helpers were with us. I wasn't keen on the idea of leaving her in a kennels as she's a very socialble dog and loves being with people, so thankfully i came across Petstay. Lauren was fantastic at explaining the process and we went to meet with Shirley. I couldn't have wished for a more caring person to look after my Molly. Shirley was so friendly and Molly (who can be a bit nervous of new people) was instantly relaxed with her. Her house and garden were totally secure and it was great to know that my dog was in great hands. when we collected Molly she was very relaxed and happy - something I doubt we'd have seen if she's been in a kennels. I'd 100% recommend this service and especially Shirley. ”

- Vicki Swift

“Our Cav (Alfie) and cava poo (Ted) stayed with Ian and Jackie recently. all I can say is that their home and garden is fantastic for the dogs. They really enjoyed their stay. How do we know you might ask. well when we went to pick them up, Alfie said a very quick hello and then ran out into the garden to explore. They are staying again in Sept and we go on our holidays in the knowledge that our dogs will be spoilt and well looked after. thanks”

- Mark Brookes

“We were quite nervous about leaving Penn as she has never been left alone, or with anyone else in the six years we have had her. However, as soon as we spoke with Lauren, her knowledge and professionalism gave us the confidence to use Petstay. We were introduced to Joanne and her partner and the first visit to their home went well. Joanne and Darren really are friendly, accommodating and genuinely passionate and caring about all things canine, they did far more than we expected to ensure that Penn would be happy and content during her stay. The reception we received from Joanne and her family meant that we were able to go away and relax, confident in the knowledge that Penn would be well looked after. When we picked her up on our return we weren't even sure that she wanted to come home with us she seemed to have enjoyed herself so much!

“A friend recommend Petstay when I was looking for someone to care for my two young dogs when I was going on a three week holiday . My girls are quite spoilt and was apprehensive about putting them in Kennels .I contacted Lauren at Petstay and she was exceptionally helpfull and put me in touch with one of her ' home carers ' Joanne . We visited her prior to our holiday and was put at ease straight away , I had no more worries about leaving them and went on holiday feeling so relaxed. She updated me every week with a report on how well they where doing . I highly recommend the service I received and Joanne and her family for the love and care they gave to my girls .”

“We left our 3 year old Welsh Springer Spaniel in the loving care of Joanne, Darren and their family for a week in January 2017. We were quite apprehensive about it but we could not have been more delighted with how happy and well Spencer looked when we picked him up. He was made to feel completely at home and was even allowed to sleep on the bedroom floor, as he does at home. Joanne bent over backwards to accommodate all of his needs and we would highly recommend her to anyone. We will definitely be using Petstay and Joanne again in the future.......”

“Tazley had been to the best kennels but always came home fretful and thin, I then found Petstay (thank the lord) Tazley stayed with Lauren and Jeremy over the festive season and by the looks of her was treated like a queen, in fact next holiday she can go with her Dad and I'll stay there ;-) Thank you so much for taking excellent care of her, would recommend Petstay without a doubt. ”

“I have used Petstay twice now and both times I've been super pleased with how well my lovely Bruno has been looked after. He is a typical daft choc lab but is such a special boy to me that only the very best will do. I will definitely use again when required. ”

“What can I say absolutely fantastic. Gizmo went to stay at the most welcoming home & I can honestly say he was treated like a king. Lauren & Jeremy couldn't have done enough to make it as easy as possible. I would highly recommend Petstay & Gizmo can't wait to go back. ”
