PetStay Stockport & East Cheshire Branch
Hi, I’m Hannah and this is Rocco, welcome to PetStay, Stockport and East Cheshire, we are your friendly local pet sitting service. Our gorgeous, though slightly stubborn French Bulldog Rocco completed our family when we brought him home 3 years ago. Having grown up with dogs throughout my life and working in the dog industry for many years, I fully understand the importance of finding the right care for your dog when you take those much-needed holidays.
All of our carers are carefully selected, fully insured and comply with regulations as set out by DEFRA. This ensures your dog is in a safe and loving environment, just as they would be with you at your home. We understand that not all dogs are the same and have different needs, therefore some of our carers do have their own dog(s) who would love to share their home whilst you are away. Rest assured we never mix any dogs from any other households.
How it works
Once I have collected all your dog’s information including everything from its dietary requirements, habits, sleeping arrangements and general day to day routines I will get to work in finding you a carer that best suits your dog. I will then arrange a meeting for you and your dog to meet your carer in their home, so you can see where your dog will enjoy their holiday. If everybody is happy, I will guide you through the easy booking process and give you a list of holiday essentials to pack for your dog’s stay.
Become a carer
If you would like to be part of our special team of carers, then please don’t hesitate to contact me. Our main criteria is obviously being a genuine dog lover, having a safe and secure garden, no children under the age of 7 and being home most of the day to look after your 4-legged friend for its 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.

This is the second time I’ve used Petstay for Lottie, our 4 year old Large Munsterlander, I must say I have total peace of mind every time I use the service, John who looks after Lottie treats her as his own and takes amazing care of her whilst we are away. She gets plenty of walks and soon settles into a new temporary home environment, I think John really loves looking after Lottie and I think Lottie even misses him, When its time to pick her up, obviously we have missed her and we are all exited to see her again, she is in very good, clean, healthy condition with no signs of stress at all. We are so pleased that we have found Petstay, we wouldn’t consider any other alternative, Many Thanks.
Great service from Hannah of PetStay Stockport, Very conscientious and efficient, and has some wonderful people working for her who are fantastic with our dog Tommy; I would recommend this service every time. George Baines in Manchester
I was very cautious initially as I had never left my dog before. However Hannah made me feel so comfortable throughout the process. Max stayed with Chelsea, she was amazing. I had regular updates and pictures of Max throughout his stay. Max came home absolutely shattered after playing constantly for 2 days but he obviously loved it.
I cannot recommend Chelsea and Hannah enough. I will definitely be using pet stay again. Thank you ladies xx.
Flexible and helpful. We have used PetStay for a few years to board our collie x. Hannah and , before her, Tracey, were responsive to queries and our dog has always been well looked after. Hannah even helped me to rectify things when I booked the wrong week in error.
I was initially worried about leaving my dog, Lola with someone outside the family as this was a first time for her. However Hannah, the lady in charge of the Stockport area and Jackie, whose house Lola stayed in both made me feel completely at ease and Lola had a great time staying with Jackie. Would happily use the PetStay service again should the need arise in the future.
Trina and Phil looked after our 12 year old yorkie Penny when we went on a 2 week cruise, and we were quite stressed beforehand, as she had just lost her sight through cataracts only 3 weeks before we went away. But Trina and Phil were superb, allowing us to have a few pre-visits with Penny to get her used to her new surroundings. They were kind, attentive and patient with her, and kept her to her familiar routines as much as possible. They also sent us daily photos and videos of her walking and having cuddles, and that really reassured us whilst we were away. We would recommend PetStay and Trina and Phil any time, they are excellent.
Skipper had a whale of a time with Chelsea and her Border terrier, Floki. I don’t think they stopped playing the entire time apart from when they fell asleep exhausted! We will definitely be using Chelsea again so thank you for finding us such a good match.
Firstly thank you for a great service. It was very thorough so I felt like I could trust your decisions. I was a bit nervous about leaving with Lenny with someone he didn’t know, and because he can be a handful at times, but I needn’t of worried. Sheila is lovely and I could tell when I picked Lenny up that he had been very well looked after. He must of had some great walks as he was very tired but happy! Thank you once again.
Krissy and Lenny
Just wanted to say how happy we were with Jackie’s care of Paddy. He was very happy and really well looked after. It’s a great service that PetStay offer and you made sure that everything went smoothly from start to finish. We’ll definitely use you again
Definitely worth paying if you don’t want to put your dog in kennels and want them to be in a home based environment. We have 3 different careers that have looked after our dog. We have always met the carer before confirming the booking and our dog has always come home happy and well looked after.
I wanted to drop you a line to say how lovely one of your home boarders Jackie Bacon is as she looked after our Jack Russell Terrier ‘Manx’ whilst we were away on holiday for 11 days last month. We went to pick ‘Manx’ up yesterday from Jackie and he’d clearly had a wonderful time in her care. It was lovely for myself and hubby Steve to know our boy was very well looked after, Jackie is a lovely lady and we’d have no hesitation in ‘Manx’ staying with her again when if and when required.
I recently had to find a carer for my dog “Wilma”, this is always a hard thing to do for me as she is more than a dog she’s my family. I wanted her to be well cared for so I got in touch with Hannah at PetStay as we have used them before and they were amazing. Hannah got us in touch with a lovely couple called Gina and James who honestly were the closest thing to perfect. The love and care they provided were amazing and we still keep in touch. Thanks Hannah and PetStay truly amazing.
Rob and Wilma
Suzy was well looked after by Claire and her family, I wouldn’t hesitate in leaving her with them again. She’s an old dog and I was a bit concerned about leaving her with a young family, however I needn’t have worried, she came back fit and well and I think she enjoyed her holiday, as did I!
Honey had a great time with Judy , she was spoiled rotten , Honey used all her charm and had Judy smitten, great service and communication throughout our holiday.
John & Debbie
I just wanted to thank you for your services and putting me in touch with Jackie. She has been absolutely fantastic and I’m so happy Oscar has been looked after so well. I was able to enjoy my holiday with peace of mind knowing he was okay. I would love for him to stay with Jackie in the future and am so happy I’ve found her! Thanks to you both again.
Thank you PetStay for finding our lovely carer for Eddie. He was so well cared for and John really understood Eddie. Our first introduction to PetStay and it was all so easy. We will certainly use them again.
Excellent service even prior to my dogs holiday. Hannah was trying really hard to find the best suitable temporary home for my 3 year old Staffordshire bull terrier Chloe even though I contacted her only three weeks before my holiday. And she did. Janet and Michael were so lovely and took a great care of Chloe. We got lots of pictures and videos as well so we could see how much is chloe enjoying herself. I would highly recommend and will use PetStay again.
I just wanted to send you a message to say thank you for finding Maureen and Rocky for our Manx to stay with over the Bank Holiday weekend. He had a lovely time by the sound of what Maureen told us playing with Rocky lots.
Maureen was so nice and we couldn’t have wished for a better home for Manx to go to whilst we were on our short break away.
Thank you once again. I will be contacting you soon with regards to further home boarding for Manx next June if that is ok.
Mel & Steve, Stockport
Just to say how thrilled we have been with Jackie’s care of Rosie
Just want to say a big thank you for putting me in touch with janet & michael
They were brilliant petstay carers. Janet put me at ease from the first introduction.
I loved getting updates from them about Ronnie and what he was up to. He was happy and very well look after when I came to collect him.
I will definitely use them next time.
Natalie & Ronnie dog, Stockport
Max & Pickles
Just to let you know that Christine & Bob were fantastic. The dogs were clearly fond of them and very content in their home. They kept me up to date with photographs and we felt reassured that they were in safe hands.
My 2 year old beagle Max stayed with Liz for 10 days whilst we were on holiday – and what a massive help she was. This was Max’s first time away from home and does tend to struggled settling in new environemnts, he is also your typical mischievous beagle! But Liz was great – kept me informed whilst I was away which put my mind at rest and he soon settled in with the family. I will definitley be using Petstay again if needed! Thanks so much, it really is piece of mind for whilst your on holiday 🙂
I’ve been using Petstay for the last 1 1/2 years. It is a fantastic service which always provides reassurance about how William is doing. I have a regular carer called Maureen and she walks William four times a day with her dog rocky. Both of the dogs have a fantastic time and Maureen keeps me updated as much as I require. The service is always spot on and it’s fantastic to know that William is so well looked after when I am away.
The service is always efficient and easy to use online. All-round an excellent service for those pets are known as which I would recommend to anyone who is interested.
Just a quick thanks for allowing me to have a fantastic holiday knowing my gorgeous boy was looked after and given the same love and attention he gets at home. I was able to relax knowing he was in safe hands and will defiantly be using your services again. Thanks to you and Neeran, lovely family.
Absolutely amazing service from someone who loves dogs as much as I do, Tracey is one the most professional, responsible people I’ve worked with and I trust her implicitly to pick only the best carers. Brilliant. It’s changed our lives as we can go away with complete peace of mind. There is nothing she could do to improve the service – it’s perfect
Susie & Tillie
Holly & Evie
Just to say thank you for sorting out the accommodation for our dogs! They
were all really well looked after and very happy! Think Maddy would stay at
Hilary’s! She loves people around and usually she is home alone because Mel
is at work! Holly and Evie were really settled and Evie found a new friend
in one of Anna’s collies!
Thanks again and should we need any stays in the future we shall definitely
be in touch! And will recommend your service to others!
Just a quick email to say how pleased I was with Lily’s stay with Beryl. She seemed so happy when I collected her last week. I’ll definitely use Petstay again. I could just do with finding someone that would have our other dog who is a bit stressy as seeing her in kennels was not a nice experience.
Thanks again, Emma
We had a wonderful holiday and so did Winston!… Simon & Victoria are absolutely lovely and their children are very sweet. We have a subdued Winston at the minute so that’s how I know he has had a wonderful time which actually is nice as I know he has been extremely well looked after. I would highly recommend simon & Victoria and we will definitely use PetStay again.
Many many thanks for all your help
Best Wishes, Sarah & Winston
Amy & Cookie
I collected the dogs today from Christine’s house, she had just returned from a dog-walk to Woodbank Park:) I thought you might like some feedback as Christine is a new carer on your books.
I just wanted to let you know that she’s done a fantastic job of looking after both dogs, they both looked really settled and not at all bothered about coming home with me. Christine really knows dogs (as you said!) and is really observant of their little quirks and mannerisms, she summed up my two dogs’ characters really well and seemed really fond of them. I’m really pleased with the warm care that she gave to them both. She’s obviously a real animal lover, I would definitely recommend her as a carer and would be more than happy to board with her again:) Many thanks for all your help sorting out care for my doggles!
Best wishes Julie
Hi Tracy, just to say thanks for fixing molly and i up with Maureen she looked after her very well and i think molly enjoyed playing with Rocky Maureen’s dog. I would not hesitate using Maureen again, in fact we are going away for a few days in December and will need a dog sitter then.
Thanks again Karen White
