A local authority in Leicestershire has granted five-star awards to home dog boarding service, PetStay.
The Leicestershire branch of the national dog boarding company, PetStay, has just been awarded the top rating by local authorities after strict new regulations were introduced last year.
Since launching in 2005, PetStay has arranged dog boarding with local carers, offering an alternative to kennels and multi-dog pet sitters across the country.
Jane Elson, who owns PetStay Leicestershire & Rutland, says: “Following the introduction of new Animal Welfare Regulations in October 2018, PetStay Leicestershire & Rutland are honoured to be awarded the maximum from NWLDC.
“We are looking forward to welcoming old and new customers. We have always known that we offer 5 star service and accommodation for your dogs, this had been proved by customers reviews and the icing on the cake is to receive the from the body responsible for regulating us.”
New laws, which came into force in October 2018, amended previously outdated regulations regarding animal welfare and now mean that businesses involved in animal activities must be licensed by the local Council.
Carole Davy, managing director of PetStay said: “This is a fantastic result for Jane. It is a testament to the care and attention each individual guest dog receives by her PetStay branch.
“It has always been important to us that PetStay be licensed and insured to care for pets, and these new licensing laws and regulations are an excellent step to reassure our customers that their pet’s welfare is our top priority.”
