“We are very pleased to have become a Paws & Stay owner. We’ve found the communication, advice and support from their team invaluable. Our property is filling up with bookings, undoubtedly due to Paws & Stay’s commitment, skills and ethos.
This calendar year, especially ‘the quieter months’, has seen a huge increase in bookings from Paws & Stay compared to Airbnb - short breaks as well as long. At present, our bookings are 90-95% via Paws & Stay.
With Paws & Stay, managing our property is far easier than with any other platform or agent. Things like enquiries, changing dates and cancellations can take a lot of time to manage but Paws & Stay takes care of it for us, making it a lot less stressful!
We couldn’t recommend any place more than Paws & Stay.”
Chris, Paws & Stay owner
What are you looking for?
To be on Paws & Stay, a place needs to have much more than the grudging dog-tolerance that passes for dog-friendly in some places. Sometimes a few rooms and pieces of furniture will be off limits, but a place on Paws & Stay will be truly dog-friendly and have a lovely spot for your dog to sleep in and never make them feel excluded or unwelcome. For humans, we look for places that have been created with passion and personality, because you shouldn’t have to settle for somewhere bland and boring just to bring your dog.
What does the inspect and select process involve?
The inspection consists of a team member and a dog (of course!) visiting your place for a couple of hours, giving us the opportunity to meet you, experience the place, offer feedback and see if it’s right for our audience.
What are your fees?
We work as marketing partners and agents, taking a commission on each booking. There are no other set up fees or charges at any stage.
Can I take my own bookings too?
Yes, you can list elsewhere and take your own bookings, and we have a calendar sync to enable this.
