Hello, I’m Jane and I’d like to welcome you to PetStay Glasgow.

We appreciate how difficult it can be to leave your dog whilst you go on holiday. You just need it all to be right, so you can leave with peace of mind and get on with enjoying your well-earned break. Well you’ve come to the best place! PetStay Glasgow offers customers and their dogs a second to none boarding service. Just take a look at our reviews.

Once we’ve had a chat on the phone and found out all about your dog/s we’ll get on with finding the perfect carer for him/her. We’ll then organise a ‘meet & greet’ for you, your selected carer and of course, your dog/s. Once you are happy with everything you can then confirm your PetStay booking and get packing

Please have a look around the rest of our website for more service information and our news and reviews.

Our service is proving so popular that we are always looking for new, dog-mad carers to join our 5- star team. So if you or anyone you know would be interested, please get in touch with me.

Jane Moyes, PetStay Glasgow.

Are you worried about leaving your dog in kennels? Have you ever considered a dog sitting or home boarding service in Glasgow?

At PetStay Glasgow 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 Glasgow who are all vetted 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.

PetStay Glasgow are licensed and insured to care for your pet.

Here at PetStay Glasgow 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 dog home boarding service second to none, far removed from the experience of dog boarding kennels. Now PetStay Glasgow are becoming known as the local dog sitters.

Our Reviews

Austin & Gladys

We had an excellent experience from start to finish.  Austin and Gladys were treated like part of the family and their individual needs accommodated.  Kelly and Martin and their children were lovely and the dogs relaxed with them almost immediately.

Huge thanks to them.

Yet another successful stay with PetStay’s Alice & Bernard for our dog Bronwyn. Throughout her stay we received regular updates & photos of Bronwyn’s adventures; this helps us to relax in the knowledge our dog is being well cared for. Thanks Alice Bernard & Liam for taking good care of her.   I would highly recommend Jane & PetStay for your dog’s home boarding.

CooperCooper

Our first time using PetStay Glasgow but definitely not the last! We were a wee bit nervous leaving our 18 month old Cavapoo Cooper for a week as he’d only been with family before, but we needn’t have worried at all. Lorraine and her family treated him as their own and he had a home from home in their house. The daily photos & videos were great and very reassuring too! Excellent, professional service and communication also from Jane in sorting out all the arrangements beforehand. Highly recommended and we’ve already booked in for our next holiday.

This was the second time our black lab Cosmo stayed with Laura and Neil and he loved it! Would highly recommend Laura and Neil for dog boarding. Cosmo was extremely well looked after, walked and entertained and remembered his previous visit. Not sure how happy he was to be coming back home after his stay 🙂 Thank you both for looking after him so well.

Milo

We recently used PetStay Glasgow for home dog boarding. We were delighted to find the company very professional and helpful. Our dog is getting old and we hadn’t left him for a few years so we were very anxious for him. Our dog was matched perfectly with a wonderful couple who gave him exactly the care he deserved. They sent regular updates to reassure us, and he came home really happy, content and calm.. Amazing !

Roma

We contacted PetStay to find someone who could take care of our border collie Roma (3 yo) over the Christmas holidays. Jane was great at staying in touch and keeping us updated while she was looking for a carer available over this very busy period. The carer that Jane found turned out to be a perfect match for Roma: Eleanor and her family have been absolutely amazing, they provided Roma with all the attention and love that she needed. We received news with photos every single day during her stay, which was perfect for us to fully relax knowing that everything was going well. This experience has been a 10 out of 10 for us and we cannot recommend PetStay enough!

Rosie

Our first time with PetStay was fantastic. We were so nervous about leaving Rosie with new people as she’s a retired greyhound and has a lot of quirks and some behavioural issues. Pamela really made Rosie feel so at home, and made sure she was cosy and adored constantly! It was also helpful for us,as Rosie is quite reactive with other breeds, that Pamela was open-minded and used her experience to help Rosie on walks and positively reinforce training/continued training (even came up with a couple new hints and tips which is great)!

We would absolutely use PetStay, and Pamela, again.

Rodney had a great stay with Martyn, Kelly and the kids. We couldn’t have asked for better carers to look after our boy. We had regular updates and knew he was in safe hands from the get go. We will definitely be using PetStay again in the future. He had lots of play, great big walks and plenty of space to roam around. If you could extend my thanks to Martyn and Kelly that would be great.

BooBoo

I have been telling everyone about PetStay and how wonderful the whole set up and service is! Our Boo is a 4 year old Staffy who we have put into kennels several times always with tears in our eyes. When I found out about PetStay and had my first call with Jane it was a huge weight off our mind to know this kind of service existed. Our meet up with Dot was great, you could tell she was a huge dog lover, she asked lots of questions about Boo, us and her daily lifestyle as she was keen to ensure Boo would have that ‘home from home’ experience. We only needed 2 nights as we were going to my daughters wedding and in that short time we had messages, photos and even videos of how our girl was doing… and she looked so happy! 5 ⭐️ service from Dot and to PetStay for making the whole process so easy – thank you!

This was the second time this year we have used PetStay to look after our collie Tougal while we went on holiday for five days .

Tougal had a fantastic stay with Marie and Kenny and he was so well looked after and obviously loved being with them both . They sent updates with lovely pictures everyday which is just what you want when you are away from your pet .

Everything just fell in to place and was perfect for us and Tougal . I would recommend anyone looking for their pet to be looked after while away on holidays etc to use PetStay.  Great service !

We were delighted to receive regular updates which gave us peace of mind that Ruby was happy and relaxed and allowed us to enjoy our holiday without any worries. We wouldn’t hesitate to book Ruby another stay with Alice and Bernard for any future holidays as it was very evident when collecting her that she had been loved and cared for, and that she’d had a great holiday too!

Betty is such a lovely person and honestly could not think of anyone more nicer or genuine to look after my little precious Leo. Betty took care of all of Leo’s needs with such care and diligence, and gave her lots of love. Betty is an expert when it comes to little dogs, and Leo felt right at home with all the affection and attention she got whilst at Betty’s house. Whenever we mention Betty’s name, Leo perks up and gets all excited, which is so lovely to see! I have never met such a lovely and humble person like Betty before and I am very honoured she was able to have Leo in her home for a few days. Betty is a brilliant carer and Leo is really looking forward to the next time she gets to stay with Betty and her husband. Thank you so much Betty!

Sadie clearly had a lot of fun, and Pamela and Alex go the extra mile by really engaging with the pets they have boarding, playing interactive games with them and ensuring they are mentally as well as physically exercised and entertained. I’m sure Sadie is already looking forward to her next stay! PetStay more generally are brilliant to deal with, very responsive, with an easy process, thank you Jane at the Glasgow office!

Thanks so much for organising Hamish’s stay with Gillian and her family. He had a good report card when we collected him after his two week holiday.

We really appreciated receiving emails and videos of his outings too. Hamish was especially pleased to have a ten year old boy ( Gillian’s son) for company.

We had a wonderful holiday in Rome and could see almost daily that Hamish was having a lovely time in East Kilbride.

Thank you again for giving us peace of mind when we have to be away from Hamish – and especially for your professional and friendly set up

ZeusZeus

Our experience with PetStay couldn’t have gone any better! This was our first time putting Zeus into any kind of care, and we felt in good hands from the first point of contact with Jane. She was very quick and thorough, and arranged him to stay with the lovely carer Lorraine and her family. They were just a perfect match for our boy. We loved receiving updates daily, seeing how much he was being spoiled and involved in the family’s day to day activities. It was very important to us that Zeus was in an environment where he received a lot of affection and attention, and that is exactly what he got! We could relax and enjoy our holiday completely. I think both Zeus and the family were sad when we came to collect him from his holiday, as they’d built a wee bond! We will 100% recommend and re-use PetStay in the future and would love it if Lorraine was to be his carer again.

From the initial telephone conversation with Jane who took lots of details about Louis to match him with the carer and then organised the meeting with carer Gilly and her dog Nala at Gilly’s home. Gilly was very thorough about finding out as much as possible about Louis and his daily routine. I loved receiving the daily photos and Louis looked very happy and at ease with his holiday home. I really felt he was having a great time which put my mind at ease. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend both PetStay and the carers.

On the first visit with Lorraine we knew Chase would be in safe hands. When dropping him off for the week we felt anxious as this was the first time he had stayed anywhere except family but that settled very quickly when we seen how happy he was to see Lorraine. Every day we received pictures and feedback of what he got upto that day and let’s just say he was definitely on his holidays too. We can’t recommend PetStay enough and will most certainly use them in the future! Thanks again.

I was so pleased Betty was looking after Archie for a few days, she was lovely & welcoming to my boy and had the best/safest garden for him to wander about in. I could tell he was well looked after and he was allowed to sleep in his own bed, positioned within Betty’s bedroom, which is his preferred place at nightime – think he feels comforted by the breathing !! He sadly had one of his “gassy tummies” that weekend so went off his food for short while. But Betty kept in touch, and he eventually started to eat again !!

Thanks again for organising Betty, she was marvellous and, if she will have Archie again, I’m sure there will be other occasions when I will need her services.

Betty

We have a young bouncy Boxer who demands a lot of attention and got in touch with PetStay about getting her watched while we went away for a week. Jane was so helpful and put us in touch with Pamela and Alex who could not have been more lovely. They treated her as if she was their own dog and kept us updated constantly with amazing photos of all her walks. It was so reassuring knowing she was with people who liked her and wanted her to enjoy her week as much as we were.

We used PetStay to look after our collie dog while we went on holiday for 5 days . From the start it was so well organised with Jane from PetStay asking questions regarding our dogs requirements. Jane organised a meeting with Marie and Kenny at their house to meet us and our dog. That went really well and we could see straight away that our dog was going to love his holiday . The day and time were arranged and our dog was so well looked after by Marie, Kenny and their daughter .Everyday of our holiday they sent us a WhatsApp with a picture of our dog and how he was doing . They were so good with our dog and we would have no hesitation in using PetStay again in the future . Brilliant service .

DornieDornie

Eleanor  and her whole family made our PetStay experience amazing. She and all of her family gave our collie Dornie the most amazing care while we were on holiday. We got regular updates as to how he was settling in which was extremely reassuring for us and laid our minds to rest so we could enjoy our holiday. Eleanor took gorgeous photos and sent us loads, we really appreciated this! All in all, I think Eleanor has been our best dog sitter ever, and we would love to have her and her lovely family to look after Dornie again.

We liked the company PetStay too, it was easy to set up our pet care, our sitter was very well matched to our Dornie. All in all, a great service, I would give 6* if I could!

Many thanks once again

Using PetStay has been a great experience, being reassured by Jane and helping us find perfect dog sitters for us.

HamishHamish

Hamish, our nearly three years old Border Terrier had a week’s stay with Pamela and her husband while we went for a short trip to Paris.

What an amazing success!

Pamela had invited us to visit her home previously, so Hamish knew exactly where the toys were. We had supplied his beds and food and a note of his routine. Pamela sent us almost daily photographs and videos of Hamish’s exploits. He was clearly having a wonderful time and we were delighted to see we were not being missed 😂

I cannot speak too highly of the service provided by PetStay. They know how important it is to look after the humans as well as the pooches.

Thanks again Jane,

SadieSadie

Our Spinone Sadie had a trial overnighter with Pamela and Alex in anticipation of two longer holidays we have planned later this year. Sadie can be a wee bit anxious if we are not around, but Pamela’s kind and caring approach meant Sadie had got over her usual wee whine within the first five minutes! She settled so well and Pamela kept in touch with photos and updates which we found so reassuring. Thank you Pamela and Alex. We can look forward to our planned holidays knowing Sadie is in good hands.

This was Ollie’s first stay with PetStay and we’ve had a great experience. Right from our initial enquiry the whole process with Jane was straightforward and she gave us all the info we needed. The opportunity to meet with Lorraine and her family before Ollie’s stay too was ideal, and really put our minds at ease as they were so welcoming. During Ollie’s stay, Lorraine kept in touch regularly with photos and updates which was brilliant. He seemed to have a fab time and settled right in. We’ll definitely be regular PetStay users now and already have another stay booked in!

BellaBella

We found our consultation was thorough, personal and clear and felt our wee Bella’s needs were met, very well. An easy to use service and great timing and wording when communicating with us.

It would appear that Bella had the best time with Sheena and her family, making herself at home and by all accounts became part of their family during her stay. We received photos, updates and very thoughtful well-wishes, for our wedding (the reason Bella was staying). Sheena empathised with our worries and anxieties about leaving Bella and made us feel at ease over the weekend. Thorough updates and beautiful pictures, showing our beautiful Bella enjoying her holiday.

Would 100% recommend, both the service and Sheena. And will be using again ourselves soon.

Dora is now a regular with PetStay as the service and dog boarders they have are superb. We have found the service extremely easy to use and straightforward service. Dora especially loves her stay with her regular dog boarders and comes back to us well looked after and excited about her next stay. We have been using PetStay now for the last 6 months and can’t recommend it enough for the ease of service and taking the worry away leaving our well loved pooch.

Dexter had an overnight stay with Stuart and Joanne. They were fantastic and took such good care of our big bouncy 3yr old Doodle. Dexter has not been left with anyone before, so we were a little nervous. Stuart kept in touch with messages and a lovely video of Dexter having fun. Jane at PetStay Glasgow made the process easy and was very reassuring. Would use PetStay Glasgow again without any hesitation.

LunaLuna

We had originally had Luna booked in to stay in Boarding Kennels but just a few weeks before we were going on holiday Luna became unwell and had to undergo lots of tests to investigate why she was being sick after each meal.

The closer it got to our first holiday in 3 years we knew that Luna needed a more home from home environment.

This encouraged us to investigate online what the alternative could be to allow us to still go on our holiday.

This is when we found PetStay, we immediately contacted Jane, the manager of the Glasgow region.

Jane asked us lots of questions about Luna’s likes and dislikes and obviously wanted to know about Luna’s medical history and her medications.

To our amazement within the hour Jane was back in touch to explain that she had 2 Caring homes that were willing to care for Luna during our time away.

We chose Gillian and her lovely family because they lived in a more similar area that was fairly rural to which Luna was familiar with.

Jane then invited Luna and ourselves to meet with Gillian at her home to speak about Luna’s daily care requirements.

Luna having just being diagnosed with a gastronomical decease which meant she was on a strict H/A diet and medications and was still having a few dispersed sickness bouts.

Nothing phased Gillian and Alistair at all, they welcomed Luna and ourselves with open arms and we knew immediately that Luna was going to receive the best of care in a beautiful family setting including their little boy Theo and the lovely little Chihuahua Chloe.

The day came to drop Luna off before leaving her to go on holiday.

Gillian and her wonderful family were so reassuring, telling us to go and enjoy a lovely holiday and not to worry about Luna,

Each day that followed for the 17 days that we were away, Gillian sent us either a photo or video of Luna with her family, obviously she was enjoying a fabulous stay.

On our return we arrived to pick Luna up and it was so clear to see that she had been made very much part of Gillian’s family

We can never thank Jane at PetStay and Gillian, Alistair, and Theo enough for their amazing loving and caring skills.

We will never again look any further than PetStay and never again dread going on holiday because of leaving our fur baby.

Many, Many Thanks for Everything,

Skye had an amazing holiday at Dot and Paul’s. They sent regular photos, daily text updates which reassured us that she was in good hands. This was her second stay with Dot and Paul which meant that we had no concerns about leaving her. We would thoroughly recommend PetStay to anyone who would rather not use a kennel for their furry family member. Instead, they can stay in a ‘home from home’ and have 1-1 care.

Our dog just loves Pamela and Alex, even though it was over six months since she last stayed, she happily bounded straight up to Pamela & Alex’s front door and into their house! This is because they make her feel like part of their family. Also, Pamela’s great photos and videos sent via WhatsApp whilst we were in the States eased all needless worries. When we are next away, we will not hesitate in booking our dog in with PetStay.

We had our first holiday since getting our Scottie 2 years ago and we couldn’t have had a more relaxed time knowing how well Andy was being looked after. We met Sheena in March and Andy has stayed with her occasionally for one or two nights, he’s always rushed in to see her and would have been happy to stay longer. This time we went for 9 nights and we arrived back to a very happy Scottie who had been incredibly well looked after by Sheena and her family. Sheena sent us photos or videos everyday and it’s so reassuring to see your dog looking relaxed and happy. I couldn’t recommend Sheena and her family highly enough.

We have used the PetStay service before and knew that our dog would be well looked after. However, his previous carers weren’t available, so he boarded with Pamela and her husband Alex. Seamus was very happy and well looked after so much so I wasn’t sure if he would want to come home.

Our Italian Spinone, Sadie, had her second stay with Alice and Bernard. Whilst Sadie clearly didn’t want me to leave when I dropped her off, the carers’ kind approach meant Sadie had soon forgotten about me and was enjoying lots of love and cuddles from Alice, Bernard and the family. I got photos of Sadie every day, together with an update on what she’d been up to. This was so reassuring for me and meant I could really enjoy my holiday knowing Sadie was in safe hands. When I went to collect Sadie she looked right at home with the family and I’m sure a bit of her didn’t want to leave! Thank you so much to Alice and Bernard and their son, and to PetStay.

Placed by PetStay with a wonderful dog carer who made sure my dog had a great holiday (just like us). A great and much better alternative to kennels where the carer actually looks after your dog and welcomes them to their family. The only place I’ll ever use if needed again. Highly recommended.

Holly had a wonderful time, evident through the pictures and videos we were sent daily by Pamela, which included Holly doing a number of activities, hide and seek, walks, being played with and general lazing about. We didn’t have to chase for an update at all and that helped keep our minds at ease while we were away. Pamela was also very organised, having a checklist of stuff for Holly’s stay to ensure she was left with everything she needed. Holly seemed to get on really well with Pamela and her husband and we will be more than happy to have them look after her again. Thanks,

ZiggyZiggy

We have used PetStay and highly rate the service and level of care the sitters provide. That said, we were nervous as always about leaving Ziggy with someone who was essentially a stranger to him. We were put at ease almost instantly as we received regular pupdates from Pamela and her partner and we knew that Ziggy was being well cared for and pampered. He was taken on lots of adventures each day and was very relaxed in his new surroundings as could be seen from the photos of him sprawled on the sofa. We genuinely cannot rate Pamela or the service any higher and they will continue to be our first port of call should we need someone to look after our boy in the future.

Thanks again

Very happy with this service. Jane was professional and efficient. She tried to meet the needs of my cockapoo Lily who I asked to be placed with no other dogs. Avril, the boarder, was reassuring and sensible. I was apprehensive about leaving Lily but felt comfortable with Avril. I received daily photos and communication throughout the week which helped me relax and enjoy my holiday. Lily seemed comfortable and happy with Avril. I have no hesitation in booking again. Great service.

This is our first time using PetStay. It was such a positive experience for both ourselves and our Golden Retriever, Jasper. Lorraine and her family welcomed him into their home and treated him like a member of their family. They sent daily photo and text updates which helped reassure us that Jasper was having a happy time with them and was being treated very well indeed. In fact, they went above and beyond when they found out it was Jasper’s birthday, they made a point of celebrating with him. Very kind and thoughtful of them.

Our Spinone Sadie had an overnight stay with Alice and Bernard. I wanted to make sure Sadie would be ok before we went on a slightly longer break as she can be an anxious dog sometimes. Well, I don’t think she wanted to come home! Alice and Bernard and their son Liam were just perfect with Sadie. After about a minute and a half whining after I left her, there was no looking back! Sadie had lovely walks and cuddles from the family. Alice kindly sent on photos at regular intervals so I could be reassured Sadie was ok, and this was really appreciated. Now I can look forward to my holiday next month knowing Sadie will look forward to her trip to stay with Alice, Bernard and Liam. Thank you all so much.

More broadly, PetStay and Jane has been great to deal with. Really friendly and a super-efficient process, thank you!

This was the first time we had used PetStay and I was very happy with the service. We went on holiday feeling comfortable that our elderly dog was in good hands. Hazel, Robin, and Andrew looked after our dog Sparky very well and he looked very contented in the pictures they sent us. He really enjoyed playing in the garden and although he can’t go very long walks, he enjoyed what he did do. I really liked the fact that we had a meet and greet beforehand as it allowed me to feel confident Sparky would settle well.

WOW! What can I say, we had the most amazing experience with PetStay. From start to finish the process was slick and professional. I felt totally confident that Jane understood our needs and matched us with the most perfect carer for our boy Rocky. What can I say about Sheena…she was just wonderful. Rocky had the best holiday with her, fantastic long walks which he loved and lots of love and cuddles. Sheena sent us daily pictures, videos and updates. He had a ball!! We worried he might not want to come back to us:) I will definitely use PetStay and Sheena again as she is just amazing! Thank you for making our holiday so stress free and for loving our boy as much as we do.

I was let down badly by a previous dog walker/border who managed to lose my darling Luna for 33 hours. I needs to find someone who would look after her in their own home and I was delighted to come across PetStay. Jane took the time to listen to my concerns and explained how her service matched dogs to people who would treat my pampered pooch like their own. I was matched with Lorraine, who lives not far from me, Jane arranged for me to meet Lorraine and her lovely family, and I was immediately put at ease Luna would be very well looked after during my holiday. I arranged a trial overnight just to ensure Luna was not stressed and when I picked her up, she obviously enjoyed all the attention she had received from Lorraine and her lovely family. We were able to enjoy our holiday and Lorraine set us regular updates on Luna which was another big plus for us. I could not recommend Pet Stay any more, their service is fabulous. Thank You

I needed a boarder for my Shar Pei, Willow. I contacted Jane who then matched me with Pamela and her family. I couldn’t of asked for a better boarder for her. I am prone to worrying about my dog when I leave her with strangers but Pamela put me at ease with regular photos and videos of their day and it looked like Willow was having just the best time. Judging from the photos of her sprawled out having a snooze on the sofa I could tell she was totally comfortable and happy there, Willow is well behaved but the breed definitely isn’t for the novice handler, however Pamela and her family knew exactly how to handle her and when I went to pick her up she was shattered from the days activities and Pamela and her partner could not have praised my dog more. It’s hard to find a boarder whom you feel you can trust so I will definitely be asking for her to stay again (if they’ll have her) I would absolutely recommend PetStay. The full process was easy and quick as well. Thankyou very much!

PetStay Glasgow was the best find ever. Jane arranged the most fantastic boarder for me – Pamela. Pamela was amazing, she cared for my little chihuahua for just under 3 weeks and sent me regular updates. My whole family really enjoyed our holiday knowing my little dog was in the very best hands. Some dogs are just not meant for kennels and need that loving home from home. Pamela provided that home from home experience and more for my chi, the pictures and videos Pamela sent made me feel so comfortable and I could tell my pooch was being very spoilt and having an amazing time. I can’t thank Pamela and Jane enough.

Jane takes a note of all your fur babies details, likes, dislikes etc. Everyday while we were away, our carer kept us updated with pictures and details of how they spent the day etc. This definitely allowed me to relax more on our holiday knowing our baby was in safe hands. I am so happy I came across PetStay and will definitely be contacting Jane again for any needs we have for carers. Thank you Jane.

Summer 2022

Wow!  It’s been a busy one so far!  The ‘phone hasn’t stopped ringing.  I have been kept busy booking in all our regular customers and getting to know lots of lovely new ones over the last 2- 3 months. It has been so good to get back to what feels like normal business and my carers are really enjoying having their doggy guests back to stay again

Since my last news post (too long ago) I have a new recruit of my own.  We welcomed our new dog Daisy last July❤️.

She’s an adorable black Labrador and such a good girl.  I must say, I was dreading the puppy stage again, but I needn’t have worried.  She’s been such a well behaved and biddable puppy.  She turned one at the end of May and enjoyed her home made, dog friendly birthday cake.  I posted the video on our Facebook page, and it got a few likes and laughs.  Sadly, Daisy developed a limp at around 4 months old which didn’t improve with any amount of rest.

Eventually she had it diagnosed as Osteochondritis Dessicans of her left shoulder.  Thankfully surgery was an option, so she had it operated on at the end of March and after a month of strict crate rest, I’m pleased to say she got back to full health. Phew!

As I write this, it certainly doesn’t feel or look like Summer yet.  It’s absolutely chucking it down out there.  We had a very soggy dog walk this morning but now Daisy is all cosy and drying off (in her doggy dressing gown😂) beside me in the PetStay office.  At least a lot of us can look forward to getting away on holiday this year. 😎

Unfortunately, I lost a few of my carers during the pandemic with change of circumstances etc.  So, I’ve spent some time recruiting some new dog-mad carers over the last few months.  Recruitment is an ongoing job, so I am always looking for new carers to join the team.  I was lucky enough to interview Pamela in February and knew right away that she would prove popular with customers and their dogs……………

“I found myself out of work post pandemic, and with my husband retiring soon I was looking for something I could do from home which would bring in a bit of money. Meanwhile I was dog sitting several days a week for a friend just for fun because I have always enjoyed the company of dogs.

A neighbour suggested I get in touch with Jane at PetStay Glasgow. I had a look at the website, and it seemed perfect for me. I filled in the online form, then Jane contacted me by phone for a chat and then did a home visit to provide me with all the forms and information I needed to get started.

Before you take on a booking you have a meeting with the owners and their dog in your home so they can get to know you and you can meet their dog and get all the information you need about the dog’s routine, likes and dislikes. If everyone is happy the booking is confirmed with Jane.

I’ve been a carer now for 4 months now and I’ve loved it. Jane is very conscientious about matching dogs with the right carer, so everything goes smoothly. I’ve been pretty much fully booked and have met wonderful dogs and owners. It’s a great opportunity to spend time with different breeds; so far, I’ve had a chocolate Labrador, a Staffy cross, a Cocker Spaniel, a Whippet and a Portuguese Water Dog! And I have a Cavapoo, Chihuahua and Cockapoo booked in.

It’s been so much fun! For anyone who loves dogs, likes being outdoors, would like a little income and wants to do something truly rewarding it’s perfect.”

The kids are back to school now and I always associate this with Summer drawing to a close, but you never know, we may get a few more warm and sunny days yet. It’s been a right old mix of weather lately. Lots of quite hot and then very wet dogs in that monsoon-like rain☔.

If you boarded your dog with PetStay Glasgow this year – thankyou for choosing PetStay. We hope you and your dog had a great holiday. It was a busy Summer for us and we’re looking forward to helping lots more lovely dogs find their home from home over the coming months. We’ve already got some very organised owners and their dogs all booked up for Summer 2020.
We have, as always, got a great team of experienced dog carers doing a fab job caring for their guest dogs. But, as always, we need more! I’ll be spending the next few months recruiting some more dog-mad people to join our 5-star team to provide a loving home-from-home for our doggy guests. If you or anyone you know would like to find out more about becoming a PetStay Glasgow Dog Carer, please have a look at https://bit.ly/2wrbnap or get in touch with Jane on 07500787643.

Our customer reviews have been amazing over the years and it’s this great feedback that makes mine and my carer’s jobs so rewarding. We’re so proud to be providing safe, quality home from home care for all the lovely dogs that come our way. Here’s a few of our recent reviews. The rest can be found in our reviews section on this webpage.

Joanna and Rafa
August 2019

This is the second time we have used PetStay organised through Jane in Glasgow. Both experiences have been excellent. This time Jane organised our labradoodle to stay with Catriona and her dog Rubble- as usual we had a meetup before confirmation of booking. Great as it adds to the peace of mind for you and your dog- and the PetStay person. We loved our WhatsApp updates – photos and wee films. Can’t recommend Jane and PetStay contacts enough. We will definitely be using again.

Joan and Gordon
June 2019


Jean and Pat were excellent carers for our Cavaliers. Who enjoyed the fortnight most was difficult to tell? Our two came home with specially crocheted blankets so it might be Lola and Penny. Thanks, guys, for your care and kindness.

Fiona
June 2019

I cannot recommend Billy and June and yourself highly enough. Ollie was again very happy being dropped off which allowed us to go and enjoy our special occasion without worrying about our fur baby back home. They are a lovely couple who clearly love dogs and more importantly dogs love them. When I first contacted you, I didn’t think Ollie would settle in another house but felt I had to give it a try as I really didn’t want to use kennels. I am so glad that I contacted PetStay, your questions to identify the correct people to have Ollie were very thorough and thankfully Billy and June were available. I would have no hesitation booking Ollie in again and I am sure we will use you often in the future. Thanks for everything.

October 2018

I think it’s fair to say that Autumn has now arrived in Glasgow☔.  Those wet and muddy walks won’t be far away Towels at the ready!!

We can’t really complain after such a fabulous Summer.  If we looked after your dog this Summer, thank you very much for booking with PetStay Glasgow and we hope to see you and your dog/s again very soon.  Speaking of which, we are now busy taking bookings for the October holidays ( nearly full up ) and for Christmas and 2019.  Some of our regulars have already booked their favourite carer for next year so don’t leave it too late!

PetStay Glasgow has a fab team of lovely, dog-mad carers all doing an amazing job of looking after their guest dogs.  We do, however, need more to ensure we can manage the demand for bookings.  So, we will be advertising again for some more lovely, 5-star carers to join our team.

If you or anyone you know would like to find out more about becoming a PetStay Glasgow Dog Carer, please get in touch with Jane 07500787643 jane.moyes@petstay.net

February 2018

It’s been another busy January at PetStay Glasgow with our regular customers and dogs getting their holidays sorted and lots of lovely new customers and their dogs finding out about our great service!

At this time of year everyone is looking forward to some sun and relaxation and so we expect to be kept quite busy in the office dealing with customer enquiries.  So, if you’re planning a holiday and need to consider one for your four-legged friend too, don’t delay as we are getting quite busy for the Summer months already.

As always, we are aiming to increase our team of fabby dog carers, so we have enough to go around.

Would you or someone you know be interested in Joining our Five Star Team of Dog Carers?

What the job involves:

You can have a dog of your own at home already.  Perhaps they would enjoy the company of another dog?

Our PetStay Carers welcome dogs into their own homes whilst their owners go on holiday.  You always meet the customer and their dog before any booking are confirmed.  You would care for the dogs as if they were your own; they would be a member of the family, enjoying all the love and attention that you could give to make sure they had a wonderful, stress-free time in a home environment.

Requirements:

You must be a genuine dog lover with experience of owning or caring for dogs, be at home for a good proportion of your day, have a secure and unshared garden and be fit for walkies!

The Benefits:

 As we live in the South West of Scotland not all your walks would be in sunshine, but the benefits of getting out there with a dog far outweigh the inclement weather!

  • Keeping fit and healthy through regular walking.
    • Meeting other similar minded dog walkers and their dogs.
    • Dog companionship without the ownership.
    • Knowing that you are providing a 5-star service to dog owners and their beloved four-legged friends – giving peace of mind to them when they go away.
    • Earning a little extra for doing something that you love.

To Find Out More:

If you live in a G postcode area, are retired or at home during the day, have a secure and unshared garden and would enjoy looking after other people’s dogs then please get in touch.  We are recruiting now.  Have a look at our website for more information on becoming a carer https://www.petstay.net/become-a-carer/  You can complete an application form for the Glasgow Branch on this page.

Alternatively, please call or email Jane 07500787643 janemoyes@petstay.net

As always, you can keep up to date with PetStay Glasgow on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/PetStay-Glasgow/1620143784868133?ref=hl

Things have been a bit quieter at PetStay Glasgow as everyone’s minds turn towards planning their festive activities. So it’s given me a chance to get out in the PetStay mobile and revisit some of the many vets, groomers and other dog-friendly businesses in and around Glasgow. We have been continuing to recruit some lovely new carers all ready for 2017 but we always need plenty more! So if you or anyone you know would like to join our 5 star team, please get in touch. We are looking for people with plenty of doggie experience, a secure and unshared, dog-friendly garden, time at home during the day and no little ones under the age of 7 years. Just give Jane a call on 07500787643 for a chat or drop me an email at janemoyes@petstay.net

Well I’d better get on. I’ve had a few IT issues over the last week so I’m way behind with our FaceBook page!

But before I go I’d just like to wish all of our lovely customers and doggies a Very Merry Christmas ??and a Wooftastic New Year!??

P.S. Don’t leave it too late into the New Year for your Easter and Summer bookings as it gets very busy. So if you are hoping to book a certain carer, it’s never too early to get in touch!

Autumn 2016

Well it feels like Autumn has arrived again in Glasgow. Summer passed in a flash for me – so much so that I didn’t get round to posting any Summer News – Whoops !

We had so many lovely dogs boarding with us over the Summer, keeping our carers out of mischief! Thank you to all our customers for sending on such great reviews. It is so nice to get such good feedback, particularly for our carers, who really do a brilliant job.

Things have been busy at PetStay Towers over the last 2-3 weeks with bookings for October and November and some customers getting their bookings in with their favourite carer for next Summer already! So organised!

So, in between taking bookings, I will be out there looking for some more 5 star carers to join our team. It would seem you doggy folk can’t get enough of PetStay Glasgow and so we need more!

If you or anyone you know would like to find out more about becoming a carer for PetStay Glasgow, please get in touch with Jane, email janemoyes@petstay.net Tel 07500787643

In the meantime, enjoy the Autumn but remember Beware of Kicking those Autumn Leaves! There are still some dog owners who don’t pick up.

Spring 2016

Spring is here!!

I can’t believe that PetStay Glasgow has been trading for a whole year now. And it’s been a great year. We’ve made a really good start providing quality home-from-home care for the lovely dogs in and around Glasgow. We have carers in many parts of Glasgow including Bearsden, Milngavie, Killearn, Baillieston, Easterhouse, Bishopbriggs, Mearnskirk, Giffnock & Cumbernauld. I’m really proud of the team of carers I have recruited over the last year and our owners are really happy too. This is evident by the great reviews from owners and by the repeat business over the last year and into this year, with bookings made as far as January 2017.

I have been busy with on-going marketing – visiting vets and doggy related businesses and some of my carers are really active in spreading the PetStay word in their areas. Our Facebook page is quite busy and it’s great to see our followers growing steadily.

I attended the first of this year’s doggy events on April 16th and what a great one to start with – The Glasgow Vet School Rodeo. We met lots of lovely dogs and their owners and I have since recruited a great carer who approached me on the day. My team is growing steadily but based on the doggy demand out there for home boarding, I need a lot more and few more without a resident dog would be great. So if you would like to find out more about being a PetStay carer, please get in touch – Jane 07500787643 janemoyes@petstay.net

Autumn 2015

Autumn is here! It’s my favourite time of the year (until Spring comes along !)

PetStay Glasgow is half way through it’s first year. We had a good Summer with lots of enquiries from customers and their dogs and we have already have returning customers and some bookings for Easter and Summer next year.

Our team of carers is continuing to grow. I am pleased to say that we now have 14 fab carers across Glasgow with really varied dog breed experience between them. They are all such lovely, doggie people and will do a great job of looking after your dog/s whilst you enjoy your holiday.

I really enjoyed getting to some doggie events around Glasgow over the Summer. The first outdoor event of next year will be the Vet School Rodeo in April. So, until then, I will be on the road visiting some more vets and doggie related businesses to tell them all about PetStay Glasgow.
I always welcome new carer enquiries, so if you would like to find out more about being a PetStay carer, please get in touch – Jane 0750787643 janemoyes@petstay.net

Summer 2015

PetStay Glasgow has been trading for just over 3 months now and things have got off to a brilliant start.

My team of fabulous PetStay carers is shaping up nicely. Between them they have lots of varied doggie experience. From Boxers to Bichons, Labs to Lhasas, PetStay can cover them all. Bookings are increasing steadily as the PetStay word spreads. One of the best parts of this job is talking to the owners about their beloved doggie. I have had a number of owners who have not used home dog boarding before or have never left their dog at all. Their thanks and relief at finding a great carer for their dog is what this job is all about. It’s great! And there are already some repeat bookings in the diary.

I’ve been out and about at some dog events over the last month. It was a busy day at the Dog’s Trust Fun Day at the start of June and I have a few more dates in the diary over the next 2-3 months:

July 25th – The Doggy Day Out – Calderglen Country Park – 10am-3pm. There will be the have-a-go dog dash and agility trail with prize categories including cutest puppy, best 6 legs and most handsome dog and much more. There will also be stalls and activities from various dog charities and organisations on the day.

August 8th – Family Fun Day – Cambuslang Park – 1-5 pm, Cairns Road Entrance – More information to follow on my Facebook page nearer the time.

September 6th – Bark in the Park – Cambuslang Park – 1.30pm, Cairns Road Entrance – More information to follow on my Facebook page nearer the time.

March 2015

Just starting out…
August 2014 and life in our house changed a lot! Enter Jess, our bouncy new puppy and a totally new routine for the family, especially for me!

Jess is almost 9 months old now and I can’t believe how much my life at home has changed. It is hard work bringing up a puppy, no matter how well prepared you think you are. But it is so rewarding. They are so very good for you. I love getting out in the fresh air, no matter what the weather and I have met a lot of lovely, like-minded people on my many walks. Jess is the greediest Labrador I have ever met (and I’ve known a few ). She is a total opportunist and despite my trying hard with her training, she will still steal food of any shape or form when she can. But we all love her to bits and she loves us back – unconditionally – which is what is so great about dogs.

I left my job as a physio after 24 years in the NHS in October 2013. I had always enjoyed my career and put my heart and soul into it. However, after having my daughter, something changed and gradually I became more unsettled with my career. Making the decision to leave was not easy but I know now that it was the right one for me. After a bit of a break I started looking for a change of direction. I wanted to work but I wanted flexibility and if I could do, work at home. When I came across the Petstay franchise opportunity it sounded ideal.
Everything feels like its falling into place now. I feel like I’m where I’m supposed to be. I have my long-awaited doggy, and a job which combines a couple of my favourite things – dogs and people. All I need now is success!

So I’m looking forward to establishing a great team of dedicated carers across Glasgow to provide happy holiday homes for dogs and much peace of mind for their owners. If you’d like to be part of that team, please give me a call.

Frequently Asked Questions about becoming a PetStay Carer

What are the requirements of becoming a carer?

You must be a genuine dog lover, have experience of looking after dogs and you need to be home during the day so you have plenty of time to give to the dogs you are caring for. You must have a secure garden and agree to abide by PetStay guidelines. You are allowed to have a dog of your own as long as your dog gets on with other dogs.

How are your carers vetted?

If you meet all the requirements listed above, we will come and visit you at your home. We will check the security of the garden, explain PetStay procedures and show you the guidelines each carer needs to follow. If you are happy with everything and we feel you would make a suitable PetStay carer, we would follow up a reference and arrange public liability insurance for you.

How many dogs can I look after?

Our service is on a one-to-one basis, so only dogs from the same household will stay with you. You are allowed to take up to three dogs from the same household, BUT you choose what you are happy with. We will ask you how many dogs you would like to look after and what sized dog/s you would be happy to care for.

Do I have to provide the food?

No, the owner will bring any food or treats for the duration of the stay. Any toys, bedding, medication and leads will also be brought.

Does the dog/s have to be vaccinated?

Yes each dog MUST have up to date vaccinations, have been wormed and treated for fleas. Proof of the vaccinations will be brought to the meeting and shown to you.

What about walking the dogs?

All dogs should be taken out each day for walks. When you have your meeting with the owners all routines, including the number and length of walks, will be discussed. The dog is only ever walked on a lead.

What if the dog becomes ill?

We/you would endeavour to contact the owner or the emergency contact. The owner or the emergency contact would be liable for any expenses incurred in taking the dog to the vet.

Will I be paid?

You will receive a daily allowance, starting from £18.00 per day.

What happens next?

If you are interested in becoming a carer, please ring us for an informal chat and ask any questions or email us with your details and we will come back to you. You can also use the contact form on the ‘contact us’ tab. If we feel you are suitable we would then arrange to visit you at home.

Who has access to your information?

We do not sell or rent your personal data or information to any third party or share your information with third parties for their marketing purposes.

We will disclose your data or information if required by law, for example by a court order or for the prevention of fraud or other crime.

We may pass your information on to our third-party service providers, agents or subcontractors for the purposes of completing a task or providing services to you on our behalf (for example commercial accountants who manage our accounts).  However, we disclose only the personal information necessary to deliver that service and have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own marketing purposes.

Transfers outside of the European Economic Area

Personal information in the European Union is protected by data protection laws but other countries do not necessarily protect your personal information in the same way.  The European Economic Area (EEA) covers all countries in the EU plus, Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland.  Some of the third-party providers we use to help us manage our business and services may involve data transferring to the United States or other countries outside of the EEA.

Your Choices and Rights

We understand that you trust us with your personal information and we are committed to ensuring you can manage the privacy and security of your personal information yourself.

  • You can always feel free to update us on your details at any point by sending an email to janemoyes@petstay.net .

You also have the right to lodge a complaint about our processing with the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (hyperlink https://ico.org.uk/).

Keeping your data secure

When you give us personal information we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely and strive to protect it on our internal systems.  We ensure that:

 

  • Up to date antivirus and antimalware is installed on all endpoints across the PetStay franchise and franchisee network.
  • Security updates and patches are regularly applied to all components of the PetStay system.
  • Access to physical and digital systems within PetStay are restricted to only personal who explicitly need these rights to do their job.

Emailing us

We use Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt and protect email traffic in line with government standards. If your email service does not support TLS, you should be aware that any emails we send or receive may not be protected in transit.

 

We will also monitor any emails sent to us, including file attachments, for viruses or malicious software. Please be aware that you have a responsibility to ensure that any email you send is within the bounds of the law.
