PetStay West Midlands North & South Staffordshire Branch

Hi, I am ‘Jenny’ and I would like to welcome you to PetStay, West Midlands – North.

In my youth I was the proud owner of a beautiful little West Highland White named ‘Basil’; more recently I have cared for a gorgeous Bedlington named ‘Blue’, who visits when his ‘mum and dad’ go away on their holidays.

During these periods of caring for ‘Blue’, I realised that there needs to be an alternative to kenneling for dog owners and, thus, my journey with PetStay began.

At PetStay, West Midlands – North we offer an alternative to kennels, with selected carers, who are fully licenced and insured. We are committed to ensuring that we find the right carer for you, who will love and pamper your dog/s as you do, in a safe and happy environment, reducing the psychological anxiety whilst you are away.

I look forward to taking some of the stresses out of your holiday by finding your dog/s a ‘home-from-home’ holiday setting that they will enjoy!

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.

Do I need to be licensed?

If you are successful then you would apply to the council for a home boarding licence (if required by the local council), we can help you with this, it is a straight forward process.

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.

How am I paid?

Your fee is paid as the dog is dropped off. This is a self-employed home-based position, is very flexible and fits around your lifestyle.

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.

Beryl and Harvey

Beryl and Harvey

“A big thank you to Jenny at PetStay West Midlands North branch who did a fabulous job looking after my two dogs when I was away. It made the break that much more relaxing as I was reassured about the care and attention my dogs were getting in my absence – just like I would give them at home. I would definitely recommend Jenny to any dog owners out there, and would use the PetStay service again”

Cassie

“I am really impressed with Petstay. I used the West Midlands North branch and our Miniature Schnauzer Cassie had a lovely time with one of their sitters Angela. It was the day of my son’s wedding, so I was delighted to know that Cassie would be looked after so that we could enjoy the day without worrying about her. This was the first time Cassie had spent any length of time away from us, and I know she had lots of attention and a good run around, which is what she loves the most”

Bailey

Thank you so much for looking after Bailey so well for us. What a fantastic service you offer and we would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who worries about the welfare of their dog whilst they are away. You and your family completely put our minds at rest and enabled us to go away without worrying about Bailey and he had such a wonderful time. It meant so much to us, thank you once again.

We were over the moon with the service we had from PetStay. Pam and Bryan were lovely and we know Bonnie was very well looked after. We have since recommended our friends to you, who have also been matched to Pam and Bryan. We will definitely use your service again, knowing Pam and Bryan are stars. We would give 5 paws.

We were very happy with everything. Elaine was lovely and the boys were happy and relaxed when we picked them up. We won’t ever be using kennels again, as this is a much less stressful option for them.

Foster

Hi Jenny, I just wanted to send a quick message to say thank you for having Foster over Christmas. You and your business has helped us a couple of times this year and I can’t fault the service one bit. Not only is it nice knowing Foster is being cared for by a lovely family/home but you even went the extra mile and brought Foster back to us, saving my wife the trip. It’s the little details that make the business so special, such as sending update messages to let you know how they are getting on. Thank you again and I look forward to dealing with you in 2015.

Ted & Lola

Hi Jenny, I just wanted to thank you for arranging the care for Ted and Lola last week. I knew that they would be happy and safe with Elaine and her husband, who not only went out of their way to stick to the dogs’ routines, but also fetched and carried them when transport became a problem! The fact that you made arrangements at short notice was so helpful, and everything went smoothly.

Jenny, I’m so glad that Cassie was okay, and when I first met you I didn’t feel worried at leaving Cassie with you, I knew when we picked her up she had enjoyed herself with you. It’s so nice to meet someone who cares for the dogs like they are your own, if anyone asks me about a dog sitter I will most definitely recommend you.

Home from home for our Blue…we think it is a brilliant idea, we can relax and enjoy our holiday knowing or furry friend is being cared for.

Cleo has had a fantastic stay with Jenny and her family. After the initial meeting, we knew Cleo would be made welcome and feel part of the family! Jenny sent a photo of her to show how well she had settled in and put me at ease. She came back home happy and exhausted after much love and many long walks! Thank you so much! Nicola xx.

Just dropping you an email to let you know how pleased we were with your service. Mo and Tramp were taken care of by Julie and her family very well while we had our holiday for a week and seemed happy and contented when we collected them. Can you thank Julie on our behalf and we shall certainly use you again if we need to and recommend your service to others.

Charlie

Charlie

Thank you for the pictures of his highness, they are his typical poses. He certainly seemed to enjoy being with you and the fact that you had no trouble with his eating was great. Sometimes he can show his annoyance by not eating his dinner.
I know he enjoyed being with you as he was about to come home with Martin when he dropped by. That is a good sign. Tom and I are absolutely thrilled that he has taken to you as this means we have a little more freedom.

I like the fact that you only take one dog at a time, Charlie is ok with others as you found but he is really a people dog. It is nice that he is in the home environment so it is home from home for him and he was very chilled out when we came to pick him up. Thank you all as a family for the love and attention you gave to our Charlie.

We would highly recommend this form of pet residency especially for dogs like Charlie who are used to being part of the family.

He is looking forward to his next stay in October.

Presley

Presley

I would unreservedly recommend Jenny as being the ideal sitter and the service both her and her family provides is to the highest standards. During our first preliminary visit our dog Presley made himself at home and even played football in Jenny’s rear garden with her son. We knew immediately that our dog would be staying in a home from home and left him without hesitation. Jenny is a wonderful ambassador for Pet Stay and Presley is already looking forward to his next holiday with this lovely family.

Many thanks Bill, Jan & Presley!!! – Water Orton

Hi Jenny, just wanted to say thanks for looking after Burt for us. Scott said you loved him. We will definitely be using you again and will be recommending you to everyone. Thanks again.
