Hi, my name is Linda and I am very happy to bring the first branch of PetStay to the north east of England. PetStay are a national home boarding service that provide a loving and caring alternative to kennels for when you are away on holiday or business. I live in North Shields with my husband, Mel, our daughter, Andrea, and our much loved Weimaraner, Tess, who we've had since she was 8 weeks old. I decided to set up a PetStay branch as I know that I could never put Tess into kennels when I am away, it would be far too traumatic and distressing for her. I know that many dog owners feel the same way and PetStay offers the perfect alternative – bespoke home boarding for family dogs. PetStay is fully licensed and insured.
Your dog would be carefully matched to one of our fully vetted and insured carers and we would arrange a meeting between you and the carer prior to your booking, to ensure that you are happy with the environment your dog would be staying in. Only when you are 100% happy, would we take your booking.
During your meeting with the carer, you would discuss your dog's routines and these would be followed during your dog's stay with us. This would include walks, sleeping arrangements, mealtimes and anything else that you think we should be aware of.
Health & Hygiene:
Dog's vaccination records are checked prior to their stay and, if our carer has their own dog, their vaccination records are also checked. If your dog is on medication, full details would be taken at the initial meeting. We do not mix dogs from different households, only dogs which usually live together would be boarded together.
Home Boarding Prices
Our prices are: for 1 dog - £20 per day for 2 dogs - £30 per day for 3 dogs - £40 per day

Thank you so much for looking after Suzy during our wedding. Claire was absolutely lovely and nothing was a problem. I would highly recommend pet stay and will definitely use the company again. Donâ€™t ever consider kennels- book pet stay you will not be disappointed and the peace of mind is priceless.

Gus has had a fantastic stay with Jane while our family went away for a long weekend. Both Jane and her husband really welcomed Gus into their home. We were worried as it was the first time we had left Gus and also worried as he has an excitable nature. Janeâ€™s experience with dogs absolutely shone through and we wouldnâ€™t hesitate to leave him with this lovely family again. Thank you both.

â€œFirst of all sorry this is late I went straight back into work form holidays and havenâ€™t had a chance untill now! What can I say the whole experience was amazing Linda went out of her way to find the right family to look after my boys we visited two couples and the second were perfect. The dogs fitted right in with her huge garden and lovely friendly atmosphere I knew our worries of leaving them for the first time with non family members had gone! The process was easy and relaxed in the lead up to our holiday which is always very stressful especially when owning your own business time just isnâ€™t sonething I have a lot of! I was I totally worried as oscar is a very nervous dog and is scared of other dogs on the lead so was concerned he would be scared of new surroundings and that when he was out he would panic. However he had an amazing no worries at all! Ollie (west highland terrier) and oscar(jack Russel/Westie mix) both had so much fun we had daily updates from Julie of what they had been upto that day with pictures! Which my partner was overjoyed withâ€¦they are his first pets so he worries a lot! When we got back from holiday Julie had gone beyond what she had needed to buying another harness as the one we had didnâ€™t work which was great to hear. The dogs were so happy and clean when we got them back and I think a little down for days after that they were home they had so much fun on their holiday! Please please if you are nervous about it which I
