PetStay Norfolk Branch
Hello my name is Sophia and I am very excited about welcoming you to PetStay Norfolk.We offer five-star pet sitting, giving your dog a home-from-home stay and providing you with peace of mind while you’re away.
Ever since watching James Herriot on the tv and reading all his books, I have wanted to be a vet. After graduating as a veterinary surgeon and working as a vet for a few years I started a family with my husband and found I couldn’t really combine being a vet with family life.
I started teaching Animal Management at the local college and achieved my teaching degree after 2 years. This was a great combination, I still had a job where I could take my dog to work (Seamus, on the picture, still loves coming to every lesson and the students love him) but when the children were off school, I was home as well. After teaching for about 7 years, it was time for a change. I was looking for a job where I could combine my love for dogs with my organisational skills and when I saw that PetStay Norfolk was available, I jumped at the chance to take it on and I haven’t looked back!
Why home boarding?
Having fostered dogs for a few years, I know how dogs change when they are in kennels and how they improve when they come out of kennels into a loving family home. Having always had rescue dogs, I have never put any of them in kennels when I went on holiday, but at times it was hard to find alternatives. We usually book Seamus’ holiday before we book our own! Home boarding is the perfect solution to make sure that both dog(s) and owner are happy and at PetStay we make sure that all our carers are perfectly suited to the dog’s needs.
Why PetStay Norfolk?
With PetStay Norfolk you can be assured that your dog will be in the most comfortable environment and well looked after by one of our carefully considered and handpicked carers. It is very important to me that I match your dog and the carer accordingly to ensure they are both right for each other. Most importantly I make sure that the carer can adapt to the dog’s daily routine, rather than the other way around. My carers are the most reliable and trustworthy in the area and meet stringent criteria in line with local council home boarding licence requirements, they are all insured and interviewed in their own homes.
So if you are looking for a caring holiday home for your four-legged family member with people that adore dogs, are fully vetted and insured, are matched to the requirements of your dog, who will give them all their usual home comforts and routine whilst you are away and are with a company that is licensed by the local council, then phone me using the numbers below for a warm and friendly chat or write to me using the email address.
Before you then choose to book with PetStay, I will take great care to get to know you and your dog(s), taking full details of your dog(s) so that I can match them with the perfect carer. I will then arrange a ‘meet and greet’ for you, your dog and the carer in the carer’s home, with no obligation. After meeting the carer, and when you are completely happy with the match, I will organise the booking.
