PetStay Liverpool and Knowsley Branch
Hi! My name is Lisa and I am the owner of the Liverpool and Knowsley PetStay branch. I have 2 dogs, Ben – who is a pug and Dash the jackrussell-sheltie – they are older dogs but are both as playful as ever and still act like pups! I’ve had dogs my whole life and do think they are a man’s best friend!
Dogs are an amazing addition to the family and every dog has its own adorable personality. Ben will bark at the most random things on the TV and Dash likes to play hide and seek! My dogs are the best company and I decided to set up the PetStay branch because the carers I have will enjoy the company of your dogs while you fly off on your holidays! The Liverpool and Knowsley PetStay branch will offer safe, professional, and enjoyable home boarding for your furry friends. You can relax and have the best holiday knowing that your dog/s are in safe hands and are having a fun time!
Why Choose PetStay Liverpool & Knowsley?
This PetStay branch covers all areas of Liverpool and Knowsley, offering a comfortable home environment tailored to your dog’s needs. Every dog has their own needs and routines, which is why we offer a home from home caring environment and every day home comforts.
You can relax and enjoy your holiday, knowing that your dog/s are being cared for and also having a great time! If you are going away on holiday for a few days or a few weeks, whatever the occasion, we are here for you!
My Dog Carers
All dog carers are chosen by myself and meet the requirements that PetStay have in place to deliver the best service possible! Here at PetStay, our carers have experience with dogs and a passion looking after them!
You can choose a carer that doesn’t have a dog, or if your dog/s love the company of other furry friends, you can choose a carer who has one! When you get in touch with me, I’ll then set up a meeting with a carer so you can visit their home, making sure you are happy with your dog’s holiday home! You can discuss any requirements your dog/s may have, giving you peace of mind that your companion has the best care possible. If you choose a carer with a dog, the home visit will give both a chance to get acquainted.
Safety comes first, so we will never mix dog’s from different families. We keep dog’s on leads at all times when they go for a walk. All of our carers here at PetStay are fully insured and regularly checked to make sure they meet the criteria for licensing issued by the local council.
Your dog/s will get lots of love and attention from a carer who will treat them as one of their own in their comfy home environment.
How it Works
I will discuss with you any requirements you may have and anything you want put in place to make your dog/s stay as comfortable as possible! The information you give me will allow me the opportunity to pick the perfect carer for you. I will talk you through the whole booking process and will give you all of the information you need to ensure you that your dog/s will be safe and happy! I will give you a checklist of essential items you will need to bring with you when you bring your dog/s to their holiday home.
If you want to chat with me to find out more information about our service or make a booking, feel free to get in touch! My contact phone and email are below. I will be looking forward to hearing from you and I’m confident you can place your trust in us. PetStay offers the very best service!

If you want to be a carer yourself, feel free to contact me! All that’s required is that you have experience looking after dogs, have a safe and secure garden and you are home most of the day. You could be joining the best team of dog carers in Liverpool & Knowsley.

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.
