PetStay began in 2005 when MD Carole Davy struggled to find care for her two beloved Cocker Spaniels, whilst she went on holiday. She knew a boarding kennel would make her pooches anxious and wanted a stress-free environment they could relax in.

Carole recognised having home from home surroundings for Cassie and Lucy, would mean she could relax on holiday safe in the knowledge that they were being well looked after. With their daily routines unchanged, in a caring home that wasn’t too dissimilar to their own, she knew they would be happy.

PetStay provide a home-from-home dog boarding service where no dogs from different households are mixed, and our customers get to meet their carer before their dog/s stay.

Our booking process enables us to select the perfect carer for the customers dog, giving them complete peace of mind when they are on holiday. Our Carers follow all of the dogs routines, and and the dog/s are given all of the love and attention they would receive at home.

Carole grew her business across Hull, the East Riding of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire before making the decision to franchise in 2012.
