Hello, and welcome to PetStay Hull & East Riding.

My name is Ian, and I am the new owner of the Hull and East Riding Branch of PetStay.

I live in Beverley with my wife Nikki and our beautiful dog, Bella.  We are both dog lovers and are passionate about making sure our four-legged friends are as happy as we are when going on holiday.  It is important to have peace of mind knowing your dog is in safe hands, and I will do my very best to find you the perfect career that will ensure this happens.


Why Choose PetStay Hull & East Riding

PetStay Hull and East Riding covers the post codes HU1-HU20, YO14-YO16, YO25, YO42-YO43, and DN14.   We offer a “home from home” dog boarding service, whether you are planning a trip for business, a weekend break, or a fortnight get-away. The benefits of home boarding are being able to tailor make your dog’s “holiday” with PetStay. This means, we are able to follow the routines you already have in place at your own home, be that sleeping, feeding, exercise or companionship. Staying in a home environment means your dog will get lots of love and attention from a carer who will treat your dog as their own and that’s important, to you and to them!


My Host Families

I have handpicked my host families ensuring I only employ the absolute best. All carers are experienced dog owners and most importantly – love dogs! A meeting will be set up so you and your dog(s) can meet their carer and see their holiday home beforehand. Safety is very important to us, so we never mix dogs from different families, and we keep all dogs on leashes whilst walking in public places. Finally, all hosts are fully insured and regularly inspected by myself to make sure they meet the stringent criteria required for the license by the local authority.

PetStay Hull & East Riding

How it Works

I take great care in getting to know you and your dog before they home board with PetStay and take full details of your dog so that I can find the perfect carer for him or her. I will guide you through the booking process and a “holiday list” will be provided of essential items that will need to be packed to make sure your dog(s) have their favourite things with them. So, if you would like to book a holiday with us or find out more about our service, please do get in touch on the numbers or email below. I look forward to hearing from you and providing the absolute best home boarding that Hull and East Riding have to offer.

Become a Carer

We are always on the lookout for quality dog carers so if you would like to apply to become a carer, I would love to hear from you. All that is necessary is that you have experience in looking after dogs, are at home during the day and have a secure garden. You could become part of the PetStay Team by caring for someone else’s family dog in your home.

Our Reviews

This is the fourth time we have used PetStay. Easy to arrange. Lovely couple who Pebbles settled in with straight away. Think the dog enjoyed her holiday as much as we did. Would definitely recommend PetStay as a better option to Kennels. Reasonably Priced as well.



August 2022

Just to say that my dog Penny was very well looked after during her latest break with PetStay and will look forward to her next stay later in the year.



April 2022

I’ve used PetStay a few times now and am so appreciative of the service. Pig is a dog that would really suffer in kennels but her PetStay carers Steve, and most recently Ann & George have cared for her so incredibly well. They really seem to understand (and indulge) her! Knowing that Pig’s happy, settled and well looked after takes away so much anxiety when I’m away. It’s a great service and excellent value for money.

Rita had a fabulous spoilt week, and was looked after at least as we could have, so many compliments, so thank you Natasha and daughter’s you were really great.

Rosie and Ralphies stay went really well.

Thank you so much for putting us in contact Karla and Paul – I’d certainly recommend (and re-book) them in the future.

My dogs came back happy and healthy, and Karla stayed in touch everyday with her ‘pupdates’ 🐶🐶

We’re hoping to book something for next year really soon so I’ll be in touch and hopefully Karla will have availability.

Thanks again

October 2021

Our dog is an anxious boy, but Tasha was absolutely brilliant with him. She gave up time to meet him before his stay so that he got used to her, which made it much easier for him. I got the sense that nothing was too much trouble and I have no hesitation in recommending her whole heartedly. Thank you Tasha!



August 2021


This is the first time I have used PetStay and the service I received throughout has been great. The staff really take the time to get to know you and your dog in order to pair you up with the right carers. Winston thoroughly enjoyed his time with Patricia and Andrew and would have no hesitation in booking his next holiday with them.



July 2021


Karla had Connie a couple of weeks ago.  I would just like to send my thanks to Karla for the great way she and her husband cared for Connie and kept us updated throughout our time away.  Loads of pics etc which was very reassuring.  We will certainly be in touch if we need to leave Connie again, many thanks

Misty & ThunderMisty & Thunder

Just a quick message to say that we are so impressed with the care of Misty and Thunder whilst we where away it was like home from home for them. And will definitely be requesting the same carers when we go on our next holidays.  It was nice to go on holiday knowing our dogs where been well cared for.

We would thoroughly recommend any beloved pet to stay with Karla and Paul. They could not have looked after our little Lyla better. From the very beginning they put our minds at ease with their kind and confident manner around Lyla. They gave us regular updates with cute photos included throughout our puppy’s stay. We can tell our puppy was happy and comfortable as she ate all her food and looked so relaxed in the photos. We would recommend to anyone and will definitely be using their services again.


June 2021


My lovely dog Pebbles, stayed with Natasha for 3 days and nights, he had a wonderful stay, Natasha kindly sent regular updates, along with photos. I can not recommend PetStay highly enough, will continue using PetStay in the knowledge that my lovely Pebbles was loved and well cared for in a homely setting.

What a wonderful service. We had an emergency situation when a relative was rushed into hospital. With short notice, Tasha at PetStay was able to find us a pet sitter for his large dog AND arrange for pick up. I really don’t know what we would have done without PetStay. Even more remarkable is that I was able to arrange it all from California for a dog in Hull! There is an 8 hour time difference and a lot of trust was involved. The pet sitter sent us a wonderful photo of Rinty settled in his temporary home, which was a great relief to us all. Communication was great.

Thanks for your help with my dog Bluebell. The service has been excellent by both Natasha and Karla. Bluebell was looked after very well, I received numerous pictures of Bluebell while I was away which was amazing and so reassuring. Karla was very friendly and provided 100% peace of mind with Bluebell.

I would definitely recommend Natasha and Karla to my friends.

Bugsy stayed with Karla and Paul whilst we went on a short trip. They did over and above when looking after him and made it home from home for him.

Karla kept in touch regularly which was really important to me, as I hate leaving Bugsy.

She also sent me lots of photos to let me know he was okay.

I will definitely use them again 🙂

Thanks so much! They did a brilliant job.

September 2020


My little 9 month old Isla stayed with Charlotte for 10 days and was looked after with affection and professionalism. Isla was walked at least twice a day either locally or in other interesting locations good for dog walking. I received whatsapp photos everyday and I had no anxiety at all about her staying with Charlotte (and her family). Five stars.

Bailey and Tommy

I was worried as I’ve never left Tommy and Bailey, with anyone before. I go away soon and was hoping to get them in for a few practice stays. With covid 19 happening I didn’t think that would happen. I managed to get them in with Elaine, I needn’t of worried, they looked liked they had a fantastic time, and Elaine is a wonderful lady. Looking forward to my holiday now, knowing Tommy and Bailey are going to be in great hands. Thank you. Xx.

After being very worried at leaving our Frenchie for the first time, we were very happy with the care given by Tasha. I don’t think he wanted to come home, he was having such a great time. We will definitely be using them again

Rascal has visited a few carers now and the costs are the higher end, however, we really have piece of mind and the carers send photos and information over so you really know how they are! I have never had a problem of finding a carer for my holiday dates and Tasha is always helpful and efficient.

Barney & Monty

We picked Barney and Monty up from Karla this afternoon, I just wanted to let you know how pleased we were that Karla looked after them so well.

She kept in touch with us throughout their stay and also contacted the emergency vet when Barney was sneezing and his nose started bleeding. The vet said this was quite common after sniffing grass, Karla also sent us lots of photos.

As this was our first time using PetStay, we were unsure how the dogs were going to be. However, we didn’t need to worry as they were both in very good, caring hands.

We will definitely be using PetStay again for our next holiday, and hopefully Karla will be available to look after them again.   Thank you

Over the past 8 years Alfie has been spending his holidays with Elaine, his PetStay carer. He always enjoys his visits, knows exactly where he is going, settles well and returns home happy and content. Tasha is always very helpful and efficient with the booking process. We don’t book our own holiday until we know that Alfie’s holiday is confirmed! Throughout all the years  the care given to Alfie has been consistent and kind. Much appreciated as always. Thank you.’

Our PetStay people have been wonderful. We sadly lost one of our gorgeous dogs between booking and the date they would have gone to their PetStay home. Both Tasha and our PetStay family were superb in the care and understanding they showed. We couldn’t have asked for more and at some point in the future when we feel ready I’m sure we’ll go back to them. I want to say a big thank you to Tasha and Sheran

Our last dog Cassie loved the care she got and our two dogs Layla & Millie love the home comforts of the carers homes.

Gizmo & Jasper

We have been using PetStay (Hull & East Riding) since 2013 for our babies Gizmo & Jasper. We can not fault them in any way at all. We can use them a few times per year and sometimes at quite short notice, Carole, Melanie & Tasha have always done their best to find us lovely suitable people for Gizmo & Jasper. We have never been let down or had a bad experience yet. When we have had new people we have always been reassured which puts our minds at rest. We will always use PetStay and we wish Tasha the best of luck in such a troubled time, she’s quite new to PetStay and doing a great job and then covid happens which is effecting so many businesses, We just hope she gets through this. If you are anxious about leaving your pets well PetStay is for you, I don’t even like my dogs going out I’m so anxious about them getting hurt but we always go away knowing our dogs are ok and that makes a huge difference to our holiday, we know we don’t have to worry about them. The whole process is efficient and organised and we highly recommend PetStay and can’t thank them enough for all the care they’ve given us over the years.

WG just left a new 5-star review of PetStay:

I have used PetStay (Hull and East Riding Branch) many times over the last four years. I have always been extremely satisfied with the service that they offer. I have been able to go away and relax; knowing that my dog will be safe and happy with all his needs catered for. I would highly recommend PetStay.

We have returned from our trip to Portugal, and just wanted to leave a good word regarding Julie and Dudley’s care for Betty. They have always kept us informed regularly of Betty’s settling through Whatsap text and pictures, and were most helpful throughout the full process.

Louis had another fabulous time with Ann and George. Really is a home from home for him. Gets spoiled rotten and gives us peace of mind whilst we’re away knowing he’s getting the love and affection he needs. Thanks again

Karla and Paul looked after Toby very well and she sent me plenty of photos during his stay and he seemed very much at home so would definitely use them again.

PetStay Hull were amazing, the perfect way to look after Jake. He loves being in the home and could not stay in Kennels. So it’s the perfect way to look after a dog. Keith got on really well with Jake and Jake has a good stay. Will use again.

We have used Sara at PetStay several times for Casper and can not recommend it highly enough. He loves going there I get sent pictures and he always comes back content..

Zena just loves going to either Karla and Paul or Roy and Sheila. Very pleased to go into their houses when we arrive.

October 19

Every time we use PetStay, Elaine, Bill and Jenny, and Lesley are all fantastic looking after poppy. Would recommend PetStay %100 and Poppy loves it too.

October 19


Yes they loved having him. We had plenty of contact with them over our holiday, they asked questions and showed concerns, we felt comfortable with the pet sitters and they said they would love to look after him again another time and we will certainly stick with them in the future.

October 19

Both our boys Ted and Maverick have stayed with PetStay on a few occasions. They have felt really at home with Charlotte in East Yorkshire. Charlotte is based in a family home with 2 other dogs, who Ted and Maverick have really taken to and have enjoyed visiting. Charlotte has kept us informed of their holiday as we have been on ours with regular photographs and updates.

I should like to say a huge thank you to Elaine in Beverley for caring for our very spoilt pooch Scooby. He is a small staffy with a lot of energy and a great need to be close to his humans. Elaine was absolutely fantastic with him. He was treated exactly the same as he is at home and there were no issues regarding his separation anxiety. In fact he was so chilled out when I went to collect him I did think he might stay longer. I would definitely use the service again and would be thrilled for Elaine to have him back. To anyone who has had a bad experience when leaving their dog I would say this service is second to none. As previously mentioned he cannot stay in a kennel as his anxiety completely takes over and even a family member who looked after him came nowhere near Elaine’s care. I cannot praise her highly enough. Thank you again

September 19

Want to thank Heather (and Ian) for looking after Poppy while we were on holiday. We had the initial meeting, and then another get together just before we went away. Poppy immediately felt comfortable with Heather and Ian, and this gave us the reassurance she would be fine while we were away. Heather kept us up to date on a daily basis with Poppy’s day with regular photos. It was very clear that Poppy was very much loved and cared for during the whole time she was with Heather. Would recommend PetStay every time. Heather was fantastic and it is clear she loves dogs and treats them as part of her family. Thank you again for everything. Xxx

September 19


Our Scoobs stayed with Karla for a week. We had been anxious about leaving him with anyone but needn’t have worried. Karla sent us pictures and kept us updated. He was very relaxed when we went to pick him up and clearly had made himself at home. Great service and very reassuring.

September 19


Just picked my baby Tommy up after his 3 week holiday with Karla. He’s a very boisterous mischievous little man who’s also very nervous with new people so I was worried about leaving him Tommy had a great time and Karla looked after him brilliantly sending lots of reassuring messages and pictures. If she can cope with my Tommy she came cope with any dog!! Thanks for looking after my baby. X

Lenny & Mabel

I just want to write a quick review of our recent experience of using the service you provide.

Our two dogs, Lenny & Mabel stayed with Karla at Brough from 3rd > 12th June.

We were more than delighted with the service Karla & her family provided. Our dogs were very, very happy under her care, and it s plainly obvious they felt at home there and enjoyed their stay.

She issued photographs to us (at our request) during our holiday, to reassure us our dogs were having fun. Which really made it a lot easier for us to enjoy ourselves.

You can tell meeting Karla, she loves dogs and has a natural ability to make them feel at ease in her presence. And our two really took a shine to her.

She provides a first class service, where the dogs needs are catered to, and we would not hesitate in recommending your service or Karla to any of our friend’s.

We are very grateful, and will be using your service on an annual basis, should you have the availability to meet with our dates.

Thank you so much, and a special thank you to Karla and her family for treating our dogs as though they were her own and taking wonderful care of them.

Hi would just like to say a big thank you to Karla and Paul (from Brough) Who looked after our boy Chaz, it was the first time he had been left as he is quite a nervous Whippet but they were great with him . He’s come back happy and no problems. Well when I say no problem sorry for the pinched chicken and pizza!. We have them booked for November again.

June 2019



We have been booking with PetStay in Hull and we could not be happier with the service and the pet sitters.
Like all pet moms, I was very concerned on leaving Mae with strangers but… no…. Not anymore. Mae had a great time, was treated like family and made new friends.
I strongly recommend PetStay in Hull.
Thank you for the great service.

Massive thank you for sorting Home boarding for our 2 dogs (Bella and Bez) I felt I could actually enjoy my holiday for the first time 😀
I want to mention your new lady in your group Trish who provide absolutely amazing service.
In fact our dogs weren’t impressed they were coming back home 😱
If I could rate Trish job and your involvement I would definitely give both of you 5 star ⭐️ Once again thank you and we will be in touch 🐶😀

So pleased with the care given to Rocky. Karla was so nice, having a bowl of water out ready and a squeaky toy for him ☺
We would certainly leave him with her again.
When we collected him she had washed all his towels ( apart from the one in use ) and fleecy blanket.
Having had lots of exercise and attention, some treats !! he came home a very happy dog.

Thank you Karla

Annette was amazing with Lollie, it really was home from home for her. She sent us daily updates and pictures while we were away. We will definately use Petstay again.

Abby & Jake

Not having used this type of service before I was a little apprehensive but did not want to kennel our elderly labs. I need not have worried, Karla and her family are lovely and the two settled down almost immediately even on our prestay visit. In fact I barely saw Jake as he had taken himself off into the kitchen with a bone. So, when the day came drop them off my only worry was that they would behave themselves. Thankfully they did. Having only used kennels before I was expecting my ‘shadows’ post stay as they were usually really clingy for a week. Not so this time, they instantly settled back in to home routine as if we had all just come in from a walk. Many thanks to Karla and her family for looking after our furbabies, we would not hesitate to come to her again or recommend to a friend.

Hull- Freddie


I used PetStay for the first time at Christmas 2017. Melanie and Austen (Hull and East Riding PetStay) were extremely helpful.
After my initial meeting with Paul, the carer, I was confident that all would be OK.
Paul sent me reassuring emails whilst I was away and Freddie, my Welsh Springer Spaniel, settled in straight away and had a great time.  This is a wonderful service, which I would highly recommend.

January 2018



We were really happy once again with PetStay who found us Roy and Sheila who really enjoyed looking after our German Shepard Mya. We had no problems what so ever and will use them again in the future.

I just wanted to provide some feedback. We are extremely satisfied with how Jeanette looked after Pippa and would definitely use her again.

We are delighted with how well she has treated our dog and her understanding of her individual needs as a nervous dog.

Can give PetStay a five star rating we left our dog Hetti with Lisa who made her one of the family straight away this was the first time we have left Hetti with anyone other than family and it was the best thing we could do for her. Lisa kept us updated for the 4 days that she was there and we came home to a happy dog. We will definitely use pet stay again and leave her with Lisa as she now knows her and Hetti would be happy. And we as her owners will be happy in the knowledge she is happy and loved the time she is there. I would recommend PetStay to all my dog owner friends.

Would like to say thank you for our recent stay for our dog Rodney with Pauline and Steve. They were absolutely fantastic and we can tell Rodney was very well looked after and had a great time.
We hopefully will book with yourselves again for next year, we are hoping for 2 weeks in July we are just waiting for dates from work and will be in touch as soon as we can. Fingers crossed Pauline and Steve will be available as Rodney seemed to love them and it puts us at ease knowing they treated him so well. Thanks again, I shall certainly recommend you to friends and family.

I wanted to write this review to say a huge thanks you to Sara Elvi- Rawe and her family for taking such great care of our pooch Millie, Millie has complex needs and has recently been diagnosed with an illness that’s left her blind in one eye. Sara and her family didn’t hesitate about caring for Millie instead they made me feel relaxed about leaving her in their care. She thoroughly enjoyed her stay and Sara sent photos of Millie to put my mind at ease that she was well. I’d highly recommend this service it’s excellent value for money plus it’s peace of mind for any nervous pet like Millie to stay in a loving home rather than being stressed in kennels. Once again thank you and hopefully she will be allowed back.

This was the first holiday I have had in 25 years without one of my pets. I was apprehensive. Binny went to stay with Keith and Elaine. We visited the week before and were greeted with warmth and a quiet reassuring atmosphere. Keith is the most laid back person, Elaine too it is so obvious that they love their work. They were thorough in understanding Binny’s needs. Nothing seemed too much trouble. They kept in touch whilst I was away. Can’t thank them enough for making Binny part of their family.
If she could speak-she would probably say the same.
I will certainly use PetStay again Thank you all.

Hull- Coco


I was worried about leaving Coco, my cocker spaniel, as he is 6 and has always had family members staying with him when we went away. This time is was a family holiday so I needed an alternative. Coco stayed with Sarah Cook and her lovely family. He was happy on the first visit and was very well looked after during his 2 week stay. Sarah kept me updated with messages and photos which was very reassuring as Coco had been ill before we went away. I will have no hesitation about using Sarah again. She and her family are amazing and the cost was no more than putting him in kennels. Thank you to Petstay and a massive thank you to Sarah Elise and Cooky ?

Dear Melanie and Austin, Very pleased with the care Tracey and her family gave to Milo, thanks for putting us in touch with them at such short notice. Would definitely use them again and so local too.




Meg, our black labrador has stayed with her carer Sarah and her family several times now and is so happy to go and has settled really well. It’s great for us to know that Meg is treated as part of the family and gets lots of attention and long walks in the country. Sarah keeps us updated via WhatsApp with photos and reports of Meg. We could not be happier with Sarah and Pet Stay who deal with all our enquiries courteously and efficiently.

I’ve been using pet stay for 8 years and they find you suitable carers while you go and enjoy your holiday knowing that your dogs are well looked after.

Excellent! I was concerned about leaving Woody as he is a rescue dog and I didn’t want him to think he had gone back into care but leaving him with Karla was the best thing ever. He was treat like a part of the family and was so well looked after I am sure he wouldn’t have minded staying. Karla kept me informed about how he was doing with texts which really put my mind at rest, I will definitely be using them again. I can’t thank Karla enough for looking after my boy so well, thank you.

Louise, Hull, January 2016



Jonathan (and Sarka) provided an excellent service. Very caring and followed all requests. First time Joe has been left anywhere since acquiring him from RSPCA and I will certainly be asking for further stays as I have complete confidence in how he will be looked after. Many thanks

Karen, Hull, November 2015



1st time of using petstay, very good service frm start to finish. Dedicated carer for my dog made his holiday fun and enjoyable. Will definately use them again.

Charlie, Beverley, September 2015



I cannot praise this service enough. Tilda stayed with an absolutely amazing family of carers, who were kind enough to keep me updated whilst I was away, and she was even sent home with her own holiday pictures! She was cared for exactly as she would have been at home, and we were very secure in the knowledge that she was being looked after. Trish and her family did a wonderful job, and we picked up a very happy little dog! I wouldn’t hesitate to use this service again and would recommend it to anyone. The peace of mind that you get is worth every penny.

Charlotte, Hull, June 2015



Just wanted to give Julie A a very special mention as she’s gone the extra mile for Morgan this time and sewn him a very smart new cover for his bed (which he tore whilst digging it up!). Morgan always comes back to us in fantastic condition after he’s been to Julie’s and se seems to have a special touch. In fact I worry that he’s missing being there with her dog Betty!

Brilliant facility, home from home service.
Our two dogs have recently spent two weeks with their PetStay family whilst we went away on holiday, think they had more fun than we did! The couple who looked after them were wonderful and treat out dogs as their own.
I cannot recommend this company highly enough, we went away feeling happy and confident that our dogs would be loved and well looked after and they definitely were so much so the couple wanted to keep them longer

Kaye, Hull, May 2015



Having picked up our dog Stanley last night, my fiancé and I could see how much he’d been loved by his carers for the week, Pam and Stuart. I genuinely think Stan is missing his new friends. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these dog loving, caring and generous doggy carers.

Sally, Hull, April 2015



Pippa first stayed with PetStay in 2007 and as we had never left her we were very anxious owners. After speaking to PetStay with a promise that Pippa would be fine and well loved we went ahead and met Pippa’s carer. We must say we were amazed how wonderful the carers were and really inpressed with the care and attention that has gone into making a safe place for a dog to stay. We went on our holiday with complete peace of mind. We would highly recommend PetStay to anyone.

Molly & Cocoa

Molly & Cocoa are two Golden Retrievers who need lots of exercise and love. After visiting Lesley one of PetStay carers we had no hesitation on booking with PetStay. The garden was secure and very large. Their carer took lots of pictures of them and wrote a diary of their stay. I had been recommended PetStay by a friend at work and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this service to any dog owners who want a real alternative to kennels.

Kerry, East Riding



Just a brief note to say that our and Alfie’s first experience of PetStay has been a resounding success!We enjoyed our break after leaving him very happy with his arrival at Elaine’s. He has clearly had a very happy time and did not want to leave, showing this by his squeaky bark when being removed from somewhere and somebody he likes.It’s not so long until his next visit to stay with Elaine and I get the feeling that they are both looking forward to his longer stay!Thanks so much for your encouragement and patience in helping us with all the arrangements and thanks to Elaine for the excellent and loving care she has so obviously given. He’s home and well settled and without a doubt will be very pleased to see her again next time.

Jane, Hull



I have to say that he and his family were lovely and really welcomed us and Henry into their home. They made the meeting so friendly, Henry practically ate them all alive and they were very tolerant of him and us.I came with a typed list of information and they did not make me feel like an over anxious owner, although I know that I am.We are more than happy to leave Henry in their care and know that their whole family will love him as much as we do, particularly their son, who even took Henry out for a short walk whilst we were there! We have only left Henry in 3 places since we got him just over a year ago so for us to leave him with Keith means that we trust him and his family implicitly.Please pass this feedback onto them, I will definitely recommend your service, which I already do, but will in particular mention Keith and his family.

Sarah, Hull



We have now used Petstay on a couple of occasions to organise petsitting for our little dog Louie while we were on holiday, and must say that Carole Davy was a great help in finding someone who we could trust and we would be happy for them to look after our dog. We find Petstay a very friendly and customer focussed business

Mr & Mrs Caruk



I would just like to thank PetStay and Debbie in Cleethorpes who looked after Rudi for me for two weeks when we was on holiday. It is the first time we have left Rudi(a German shepherd) with anybody but family and he was very well looked after and he could not have been looked after any better,I would not hesitate to leave him with Debbie again and I’m sure Rudi would love to stay with Debbie and her family again. Debbie kept in touch with me in Turkey by text to let me know he was ok and having fun. I would never put my dog in kennels and this is a great alternative. Although we missed Rudi we knew he was being well cared for and happy so it made our holiday a lot more enjoyable. Thanks Debbie your a star.

Mrs Lawton, Grimsby



I just wanted to email you to say how pleased I was with your service and the carer you arranged for Heidi last weekend. June was lovely and I felt really comfortable leaving Heidi with her. Heidi seemed to really enjoy staying with June and June really looked after her. We felt at ease knowing that Heidi had been looked after in a welcoming caring home. I will be using PetStay again and will recommend you to my friends.

Jasper & Gizmo

Gizmo & Jasper

The service you have provided so far is excellent. You took the time to ask the right questions regarding Jasper & Gizmo which put me at ease and gave me faith that you would find the right people for them. I have met the family who will be taking care of Jasper & Gizmo and feel positive that you have chose the right place for them. With Thanks

Cassie & Lucy

Cassie & Lucy had never stayed in kennels before but we had been lucky enough to have family members to look after them but when all this changed we were lost until we found PetStay. We found a home-from-home for our dogs. When we drop them off their tails are going mad as they are so happy and excited. I do think they are a little spoilt whilst they are with their carers but we wouldn’t leave them anywhere else.
