At PetStay - York, Harrogate and North Leeds 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 York, Harrogate and North Leeds area are 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 would prefer to have the peace of mind that 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.

About Us

Hi, I’m Tracy and this is our family dog Tilly. Welcome to PetStay York, Harrogate & North Leeds branch which I have the great delight to bring ‘home dog boarding’ to the area of York, Harrogate & North Leeds. Like myself Tilly likes her home comforts and would prefer to be lying on a loving knee rather than alone in a kennel.

I have been a dog carer with PetStay for nearly 4 years now, enjoying every minute of it to the extent that when an opportunity came along to buy the York, Harrogate & North Leeds Branch I could not wait to get started and work closely with other dog lovers like myself as I strongly believe that a dog is better in an home environment rather than a kennel.

If you’re looking for a holiday home for your beloved dog/s then look no further then PetStay I can match her/him to one of our team of lovely carers who are all vetted by me and are fully insured.

“We have used PetStay for Tilley (Wheaton Terrier) about 6 times now and has been fantastic. Both carers have been great and looked after Tilley really well. Arranging and booking time has been very good with quick responses and easy to use booking system. Would fully recommend”

- Andrew Tattersall

“Many thanks to Tracy at PetStay for finding me a new couple to look after Max when his usual PetStay sitters were booked up. I was a little worried about him going somewhere new but as soon as I met Steve and Shirley I felt so much better. Max has just spent 5 days with them and Steve kindly sent me a text to let me know that everything was going well and also sent a photo of Max enjoying the lovely sunny weather laying on Shirley's lap. Tracy really does take into account your pets needs when finding sitters which was especially important for me as Max is a miniature Terrier so a secure garden was particularly important. I would definitely recommend PetStay. ”

“A super big thanks to PetStay York and Katie for looking after our Border Terrier for six days during our holiday abroad. We felt very at ease leaving Bella with you and could relax knowing she was in good hands. Great communications also whilst we were away. We would highly recommend PetStay as we've also left Bella with Brenda/Ken before and also had no issues at all, and know she'll be well cared for. We have Bella booked with them again in August. :)”

- Jane & Steve

“Lottie, my 2-yr old border terrier, stayed with a new carer - Ann. Ann and her family made Lottie very welcome and it was clear on my return she had integrated herself very much so into the family. Thank you for taking great care of her.”

- Chrissy Gilham

“Rosie stayed with Nicole in Selby who is such a lovely person. We felt welcome in her home as did our poodle Rosie. I can say yet again how wonderful Pet Stay is and I never worry about Rosie as she is always well cared for. Thank you Tracy for our booking ”

- Jane Clark

“We have used Petstay theee times now, and each time our beloved Baxter has stayed with different people. Every time I have been impressed with the excellent service and so happy with the loving environments Baxter has stayed in. Baxter has stayed with Brenda and Ray in york these past few weeks, and they were wonderful! Baxter, although happy to be home, is clearly missing his new friends. They’ve obviously looked after him fantastically and we hope that they will be free next time we book a holiday. Thank you Petstay! The Shaw Family”

- Mrs Shaw

“Would like to thank Val and Chris for looking after poppy and Molly. I felt really relaxed leaving them with Val and Chris and would definitely want them to go again.”

- Sue mclean

“We would just like to thank John & Frances for looking after our 6 year old Maltese Terrier Maisy whilst we were away. She seem settled and happy and John kept us up to date by sending us lovely photos of her to reassure us. There was no need really as the care and attention they showed was exceptional. Thank you for having her and we feel that Maisy really enjoyed her stay. One happy doggie!! ”

“We left our little Lhasa, Ozzie, with Helen and Andy and I think he enjoyed his holiday as much as we enjoyed ours. He was well looked after and we had no worries about leaving him. We have used PetStay for the last 2 years and would definitely recommend them.”

- Linda

“My two greyhounds stayed with Katie and were very happy and relaxed when I picked them up; they’d clearly had a great time and were far happier than they are after staying in kennels. The whole booking process was easy and straightforward.”

- Sally

“We recently left our springer spaniel Rosie, to have a holiday with Andy & Helen Pakuza. We enjoyed our holiday all the more knowing that Rosie would still be having her daily walks and treats. We have used Petstay for several years and would never go back to using the Kennels. ”

- Denise Helstrip

“Pip has been staying with Sally and Garrod for four years now whilst we are away and every time she runs up their drive with her tail wagging and we know that she is going to be so well looked after. I would thoroughly recommend them. What a wonderful service, Helen Buckley”

- Helen Buckley

“I first contacted Petstay a couple of years ago when we needed someone to look after our dog Poppy while we went on holiday as we would not be happy to put her in kennels. My son had always looked after her but he was about to move to America. I searched the internet for alternatives to kennels and found Petstay, I contacted Sally who was very efficient, getting back to me straight away and after asking a few questions about Poppy's needs she put us in touch with John and Frances and we haven't looked back since. At our initial meeting it was obvious that John and Frances loved dogs and Poppy seemed very happy and comfortable with them. Even though we knew they would look after her well we were still very apprehensive about leaving her, but we needn't have worried she thoroughly enjoyed her time with them and John emailed photos of Poppy to put our minds at rest. Poppy requires medication and it is never an inconvenience to John and Frances to administer her tablets. Poppy has now stayed with John and Frances five times and she bounds happily into their home, always pleased to see them again, when we drop her off. It is obvious to us that John and Frances love having Poppy to stay (even though she is a demon with their mail!!) We can rest assured that when Poppy stays with John and Frances that she is happy and content and she will be back to stay in the summer. A big thank you to Sally at Petstay and John and Frances, we don't know where we would be without them. Barbara and John (Knaresborough) ”

“Just to say how wonderful Sally and Gerrod at Petstay are and how happy I am with the service they offer. From the email support Sally has given me through to finding a suitable holiday home for my two dogs I have no complaints at all. Cat was a wonderful carer and her attention to detail finding out everything my two needed for their stay through to the lovely family atmosphere in her home seemed to put my two at ease immediately. I received text messages to put my mind at ease while away and beautiful photo's of my dogs asleep and relaxed with their holiday family. I would recommend Petstay to anyone and thanks again. Julie”

“We wanted a home from home environment for our dog as we were embarking on an epic journey for over three weeks on a family holiday to China! Wow what a great service we got from PetStay right from the start - from my first enquiry to finding a suitable potential home very quickly and then setting up a meeting with Liz and then smooth payment and clear instructions. The form to complete about Pippy's daily routine and preferences was very comprehensive and made discussions when I met Liz really useful so we were both clear about what Pippy needed. This is our first family dog and the first time we had left him for any time. But we need not have worried - he was already starting to settle in and becoming part of the gang with Toby and Squib! We need not have worried in the slightest. Liz and Malcolm had got things all planned and sorted and Pippy was already having a good time. A phone call when I got home really reassured me and put my mind at rest. Also texts whilst we were away were very reassuring. Meeting up with Pippy again when we got back went really well - he was so pleased to see us ( we were so relieved he had not forgotten who we were) - lots of yelps, licks and jumping about when he caught sight of us! At the same time Pippy was obviously happy and settled and looked really good. Groomed daily and with sparkling teeth after daily cleans too! And an added and unexpected lovely touch was to be given a few snapshot photos taken during his stay showing him clearly having a great time! So overall - delighted. Would we use PetStay again? - definitely, would we recommend Liz and Malcolm - most definitely and will we tell our friends how happy we were with the service - Definitely YES! ”

“I would just like to thank you for all your help in securing Bertie a 'home from home' experience whilst we were on holiday for two weeks. Bertie is a very gentle and loving dog who doesn't suit kennels, so when we were unable to find someone to care for him, you came to our rescue. From the outset you were diligent in finding the right carer for our Pointer and arranged a meeting so that we felt comfortable in where he would be staying. The carer was perfect and Bertie was happy and relaxed when we went to collect him. He had had such a brilliant time I think he wanted to stay! Thank you so much and I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending PetStay.”

- Fiona Pulsford

“Finding a safe and loving temporary holiday home for my 13 year old blind poodle was such a relief and meant we could fully enjoy our adventures in Australia for three weeks. Diane, based in Boroughbridge and her family provided Penny with the love and attention she needed and knowing she would be happy, warm, comfortable and given lots of attention was so important to us. We would be very happy to use Petstay again.”

- Jennifer Noble

“It’s always a worry leaving your family pet when you go away so I was delighted when we found a “Home from Home” for Bruno, our 10 year old Italian Spinone. Sally & Garrod were keen to understand what he enjoyed and clearly had a lot of experience of caring for dogs. They requested relevant contact numbers, including our vet, and made me feel confident that he was in good hands. Bruno really took to them and has now been to stay on several occasions. He is always pleased to see them - and happy for me to go! When I collect him he is calm and relaxed and I can tell by the tales Garrod tells that he has had a great time.I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Sally & Garrod Cooper to care for your dog! Penny Harrison”

“We found the thought of leaving Maggie, our Border Terrier, really difficult when going on holiday. We looked at kennels but didn't feel comfortable in leaving her in such a different environment. We decided to look at Petstay and that's where we met Sally and Garrod. Sally and Garrod have been exceptional. They have made sure Maggie's every whim is catered for: from giving her porridge in the morning, to ensuring that she has at least an hours exercise each day. Not only that, they have sent us regular e-mails and pictures to keep us up to date with how she's getting on. I now no longer worry about leaving her when we're away. I know she is happy - the tell-tale sign is her tail wagging as she arrives, which makes the whole process easy for us. They are fantastic! Paula North”

“Going away knowing that Sally & Garrod provide a second home to Rolo is so much easier. By maintaining his routine and welcoming Rolo in to their home I know I will return to a very happy and contented dog. Penny & Andrew Chipp”
