Erewash Borough Council in Nottinghamshire has granted a five-star award to home dog boarding service, PetStay.
The Nottingham 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.
Mark Skorupa, who owns PetStay Nottingham, says: “We’ve always worked very closely with Erewash Borough Council since we started our PetStay branch in October 2015, so it was great news when they granted us a 5-star licence.
“We’ve always operated to the highest standards in providing home boarding for dogs so feel the 5 stars reflects this and lets the customer know what a professional company we are. It’s also been thanks to PetStay HQ in the support they’ve provided us in applying for our licenses”.
New laws, which came into force in October 2018, amended previously outdated regulations regarding animal welfare and now mean that businesses involved in animal activities must be licensed by the local Council.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 Mark and Chris. It is a testament to the care and attention each individual guest dog receives by their 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.”
