PetStay North Manchester Branch
Hello, we are Carol and Russ, and this is our best friend Alfie.
We are delighted to provide a personalised home dog boarding service for the North Manchester area. We all love our holidays and so should our beloved dogs. Our standard for providing home dog boarding is that we would stay at the accommodation our team provides! This standard is validated by our positive feedback from happy customers we have received during this first year of providing the service.
What We Do
We believe that dogs would prefer to spend their holidays in a happy, loving and caring family environment in which their daily routines and needs are met as determined by the people who know them best – YOU.
Finding the right pet sitter or home boarder with experience can be difficult, but it doesn’t need to be. Our team of carers have been hand-selected by us! They provide a home-boarding experience which complies fully with The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) England Regulations 2018 and matches up to our own high standards.
We will work with you to deliver the personal service that your dog(s) deserves, leaving you to enjoy your well-earned break with the peace of mind that your dog or dogs are receiving the best care, attention, and love they deserve.
We believe that dog(s) are individuals like us all so we will get to know you and your dog(s) so we can find the member of our team who is best suited to provide the personalised care unique to your pet. You will meet the chosen team member and their family in the environment that your dog(s) will be staying before booking. This meeting, we believe, will provide you with the reassurance and transparency that leaving your dog(s) in our care is with the right person who understands the very personal requirements that you and your dog(s) want. After all we would not be leaving our children or an elderly relative in establishments we have not personally visited.
PetStay North Manchester meet all the rigorous PetStay national standards and as do our carers. We ensure all our fully compliant and insured Carer team look after your dog(s) like one of their own family to provide your dog(s) with the best possible holiday experience. We never mix dogs from different families and we allow you to choose whether you want your pet to stay in a home with pets or no pets.
It is important to us that we have a range of carers for our customers to choose from, and so keep in contact with each carer to ensure standards remain high at each home.

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?

Dora & Marci
We left our two dogs Dora and Marcelo with Carol and Russell from PetStay North. We can not recommend them highly enough. From start to finish Carol and Russell reassured us that both our dogs would be looked after as if they were with their own family. Before their stay, we met with Carol and Russel at their home with both dogs. As expected Dora ran off to explore but Marci stayed close, which made me nervous. Carol and Russell put our minds at ease and reassured us they would follow all our routines at home. We were sent videos and photos of two happy content dogs. We have one very confident little dachshund and recently got a very timid rescue puppy from Hungary, who we were very nervous about choosing to leave with. Carol and Russell allowed us to enjoy a holiday knowing in our heart or hearts that our fur babies were being taken good care of. Thanks, Carol and Russell. We will most definitely be recommending you and the PetStay North Manchester branch. Both Dora and Marci can’t wait to see you both again. I just wish more dogs could experience the love and care Marci and Dora received with you.
Meg & Bob
Meg and Bob are two lively but rather anxious Patterdales. So we needed somebody calm, confident and capable to love and look after them. Sue has all of that in abundance. From the lovely messages, we received it was clear they had the time of their lives whilst we were away. I can wholeheartedly recommend Petstay North Manchester who were extremely prompt and diligent in finding the right carer for my dogs. I am very grateful to have found someone who my rascals adore.
It was Barneys first stay away from home and it was for a period of 5 weeks so we were quite anxious that the care was exceptional. We took Barney to meet Ann at her home and we all got on straightaway. Ann was amazing caring for Barney along with her son Gary. We were given regular text updates and photos while we were on holiday and Barney has come home to us safe and happy. From the bottom of our hearts we thank Ann and Gary for their care and attention to our precious little boy Barney and Petstay for their amazing service in supplying outstanding carers.
This is the first time we have used PetStay and the whole experience has been positive. We were matched with Sue who cared for a lady so well and catered for all her dietary needs. We received daily updates on Lady’s progress and was clear she and settled well, we also got daily photos which was so reassuring.
I cannot recommend the device enough, from the booking process with Carol and Russel to the excellent match they found for us.
Will definitely use the service again.
Our dog has just spent 10 days with Trish via PetStay and we never had a moment’s worry despite it being the longest period we have been away since getting him. Trish sent us daily emails with photos and while he was glad to see us when we returned he was clearly well looked after and happy while we were away. As with all PetStay ‘families’ Alfie stayed in their house and was looked after just like he would have been at home. Plus we had the added advantage that Trish has a dog so Alfie has company on walks etc. Really good service and very good communication before and during the stay
Extremely happy with the service received from pet stay. Prompt service and carer Identified quickly. Our carer Geraldine was amazing with Max our 11yr old Labrador. He was really well looked after, we received lot of messages and pictures whilst we were away, couldn’t have wished for a better carer. We definitely would use pet saty again and hopefully same carer.
What a result – Going on holiday knowing full well that your dog is getting the love and attention she deserves – and not stuck in a cage !
Thanks to Chris and Jenny for the lodgings and love for Noodle and to Russel and Carol for finding them for us.
Would recommend to all.
First of all I would like to start with thank you to Carol and Russel. This was my first time leaving my pooch with someone other than close friends/family and I have to admit I was a little nervous! I did a bit of research and Petstay popped up numerous times… long story short I had a lovely phone conversation with Carol who asked me all about my dogs needs and Home comforts. I automatically felt at ease and sent a email across with a few pictures of likes and dislikes and within 24 hours I had a response with a placement! After a visit to their home, a good chat about my worries and what smokey needed I came away feeling happy and confident in the place he was staying. Smokey isn’t good with other dogs and can be quite arrogant with his size but even that didn’t put them off!The drop off was completely stress free for me and him and once again I came away feeling relaxed about leaving him for 9 days. Whilst away I received updates and pictures and it was clear to see he was more than happy on his holiday! He was walked, cuddled, fussed over and came home a happy boy! There is now no where else I would consider leaving him! I can’t thank pet stay and their services enough! Would highly recommend for any dog of any size or breed they are made to feel part of the family! Thank you again! !
I didn’t want to kennel my dog whilst I was on holiday, therefore, I searched online for boarding and PetStay were the best I could see online. I applied and quickly received a response from a friendly gentleman called Russell. We spoke about my collie and all his likes/dislikes and quirks( our collie has many quirks ). I was put in touch with a lovely lady called Sue. Myself, husband and dog met Sue in her home environment and I could tell within minutes that my Collie would be in good hands. In fact, I think my dog would have happily stayed there and then! All, Sue’s family made a fuss of our dog at the initial meeting and he loved being the centre of attention.
Whilst we were away, Sue sent What’s App messages and pictures regarding our Collie. Upon picking our Collie up from our travels, Sue had kept a little mini diary about his week boarding there and he had a ball of a time, so much so, that PetStay and Sue have been rebooked for when we next holiday.
So, for anyone thinking of using PetStay, I’d say go for it and give them a try, be reassured that your dog will be in capable hands.
Before I sign off , I’d love me to say thank you to Russell for putting us in touch with Sue and a big thank you to Sue and her family for looking after Lennie, you all exceeded my expectations!
Thanks so much Carol and Russel for letting our little baby Bertie stay at your house while we went away … from our first meeting we were very impressed and you put us both at ease knowing Bertie would be looked after … the daily updates ensured us that Bertie was enjoying his stay. Would not hesitate in recommending your services to friends and would definitely let Bertie stay with you again …
We were delighted with the service provided by PetStay North Manchester. From our first conversation with Russell, we were sure that he could find us a carer suitable for Cookie. As Cookie is a rescue dog who has been with us for less than 6 months, we had a list of concerns as long as our arm but Russell immediately put our minds at rest.
Upon meeting Cookie’s carers, Jenny and Chris, any remaining concerns we had disappeared. We could not have wished for anyone better to care for Cookie and we know that she was really well cared for and loved whilst we were away. We enjoyed receiving the updates and pictures of Cookie during our holiday and know that she had a fantastic time staying with Jenny and Chris.
We were so happy with the service provided, we immediately booked Cookie in for another weeks holiday later in the year upon our return. We really cannot praise PetStay North Manchester enough.
My family and myself cannot praise Carol and Russell enough for looking after our Ronnie recently whilst we went on holiday. We met with Carol and Russell at their home to introduce them to Ronnie and also discuss his daily routine so that this could be maintained whilst in their care. They went the extra mile to ensure that we had no concerns about leaving Ronnie in their care and sent us daily updates and photos of Ronnie which we really appreciated. We could see that he was enjoying his holidays too. We could also see the relationship that they had built with Ronnie and would recommend the high level of service that Carol and Russell provide to anyone looking for someone to care for their dog. Thank you so much.
Our two year old Labrador has just had his second stay with Chris and Jenny and really enjoyed himself. I was very nervous about the prospect of a dog boarder but the whole process from initial phone consultation to meetings with selected boarders was very professional and put my mind at ease. Leo can be a bit of a handful at times but PetStay took the time to find suitable boarders and they are great with him.
Rocky is our 14 year old Jack Russell and although he has been in kennels for many years we feel in his older years he needed to be looked after in a home environment. I searched on the internet as I was not sure if this service was available but quickly found PetStay’s website. We live in Stockport but as all the local carers were booked up we were provided with the contact details for PetStay North Manchester.
Russ and Carol from PetStay had avaibliity and after our first visit all our questions were answered. After dropping Rocky off we were able to enjoy our weekend away and upon our return was happy to find Rocky happily asleep next to Carol.
I would urge you to use PetStay North Manchester as we are extremely happy with the personal service supplied.
Dora & Snoopy
“Thank you for a very client based approach towards finding the right match for both myself and the dogs. They were looked after exceptionally and I would highly recommend your services again. Many Thanks
PetStay and carer Trish – absolute angels of mercy! Taking such good care of 2 of my Sheltie Bitches at such very short notice, when I was suddenly taken so ill, just as my other bitch was about to whelp a litter! I would be happy to strongly recommend PetStay’s service to any other dog owner who needs them to be loved and cared for away from home!
Our End of Year Review
Having now completed our first year we are pleased with the progress we have made and are looking forward to developing further on the encouraging start we have made. We decided initially to advertise widely around our particular patch using local newspapers and journals and supporting this with associating our brand with community activities and events such as our Grandson’s school calendar a local dog walk for charity and a residential care home’s annual fundraising lunch to name a few. We also selected certain well-established shops where we are known to leave leaflets feeling that the selected shops would be the right type of place for our business to reach the right people.
During the course of the year, we have recruited 15 carers into our team which we aim to add too during 2019. We have booked over 100 happy guest dogs with many of their owners making a second booking for their pet! It just goes to show that we and our amazing carers are providing a service people in North Manchester want to use.
PetStay North Manchester are open to take bookings and are looking for new dog carers for the 2018 season

Russ and I are delighted to be in our first year of being part of the PetStay family and are really looking forward to operating a fantastic dog boarding service to ensure our pet dogs have as wonderful holidays as our customers do!
