PetStay Bromley & South East London Branch

Hi we are Ian and Claire and together with Harry, our bulldog cross (Old Tyme and Frenchie), we are thrilled to run the 1st branch of PetStay in South East London

Being huge dog lovers, ensuring Harry is happy and well cared for when we are away is of the utmost importance to us. We wanted to be able to give others the reassurance of knowing their dogs are well cared for and enjoying their holiday as much as they are.

All our carers go through rigorous checks and must comply with local council regulations, in addition all carers are fully insured via PetStay. We are only happy to take a carer on who we would happily leave Harry with, and we are very fussy, so we know we only have the best on board!

Why Choose PetStay?

From our own experience and many conversations within our local doggy community, we know how difficult it can be to find good, consistent and reliable care for your dog when you go away. We know Harry would never be happy in kennels or placed with a sitter who didn’t fully understand his very personal doggy ways, and neither would we. Caring for your beloved family member is about so much more than just food and board.

We will match your dog to an appropriate carer based on where you live and the needs of your own dog. A carer is exclusive to you for the duration of your booking, up to three dogs from one household can stay at any one time.

We will arrange for you and your dog to meet your carer in their home so you can talk through your dog’s routine, discussing for example where they sleep, how many walks they have each day plus food and treats. If you want daily pics and videos of your pooch enjoying themselves ( we do ! ) your carer will send these to you. This visit means your dog will be familiar with the carer, their home surroundings and provides you with complete peace of mind. We confirm your booking after you meet the carer and once you are completely happy.

Are you worried about leaving your dog in kennels? Have you ever considered a dog sitting service in Bromley?

If you are worried about leaving your dog in kennels and would prefer a more personal touch, then why not consider a dog sitting service in Bromley, Greenwich, Lewisham, Swanley and the surrounding areas.

At PetStay Bromley & South East London we have many caring and affectionate pet sitters that are insured and have been carefully chosen to provide a better experience than dog kennels for dogs whilst their owners are away on holiday.

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 £16 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.
