Councils in Norfolk have granted five-star awards to home dog boarding service, PetStay. Sophia - PetStay Norfolk

The Norfolk 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.

So far, PetStay Norfolk has been awarded 5-stars by Great Yarmouth Council, Breckland Council and North Norfolk Council.

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.

Sophia Guymer, who owns PetStay Norfolk: “I am proud as punch that we have achieved 5-star licences in all of these local authorities. We work hard to make sure we offer a very high standard of care both to our boarding dogs and their owners.

“My carers are lovely and you only have to look at the feedback they receive to feel rest assured that both owners and dogs feel exactly the same.”

New laws, which came into force in October 2018, amended previously outdated regulations regarding animal welfare and now mean that businesses involved in animal activities must be licensed by the local Council.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 Sophia. 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 is 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.”
