PetStay is a flexible, high quality franchise opportunity, allowing you to run your business from home, providing pet owners with an alternative to dog kennels - you match their pets with a local dog carer.

A PetStay franchise is an exclusive opportunity for you to join an industry leader in arranging five-star quality home boarding dog care.

PetStay – A Loving and Caring Alternative to Kennels

PetStay is an award winning 5-star dog boarding franchise, leading the way in providing high quality dog care across England, Wales and Scotland. We are an established and reputable brand with 43 branches throughout the UK and an industry leader in ‘Home Dog Boarding’.

Our exciting opportunity allows you to work from home with flexible hours, running your own home dog boarding service that is well-known and recommended by vets. As a PetStay franchisee, you will be providing a safe alternative to kennels and matching customers to a suitable home pet sitter within your network of local dog carers, all from the comfort of your own home. With a low franchise fee of just £9,995 + VAT, there has never been a better time for you to open your own PetStay branch.

PetStay is an industry-leader in professional dog care, being the first home dog boarding company to be licensed in many areas.

We have provided licensed and insured home boarding dog care since 2005, when Managing Director Carole discovered no suitable alternatives to kennels in her area for her own dogs. Since opening the first branch in Hull and East Riding, Carole’s alternative to kennels thrived and soon began covering the Lincolnshire areas. The branch exceeded her expectations and demand continually increased year upon year. Carole then took the decision to franchise her business in 2012, to offer her professional and high-quality home-from-home dog care service to owners across the UK.

PetStay has successfully established itself as the No. 1 UK pet sitter* with 43 branches and a thriving network of over 500 vetted and insured home dog boarders.


With an estimated 8.5 million dogs living in the UK and an annual spend of £4.6 billion on our four-legged friends, the dog care market is thriving, proving to be viable and profitable even in a poor economic climate.

The PetStay business model allows you to establish your own successful service in a large, exclusive territory with low overheads, flexibility and great rewards that can increase year on year as your branch grows. Your earning potential depends on you and the work you put in to your branch. The more dog carers you recruit, the higher your capacity for guest dogs and the more income you can generate!
