  Welcome to Sit 'n' Stay Petminding

We are delighted to announce that we are now taking bookings for our comprehensive dog grooming service operating from a fully-equipped home-based studio in Font-y-Gary, Rhoose.

With separate direct access we can observe social distancing and hygiene measures during the pandemic and provide a safe, secure 1-to-1 environment for your dog, and one that's particularly suited to those who are elderly or of a nervous dosposition.

We provide bathing, clipping and nail trimming and also offer a pick-up and drop-off service for owners without their own transport or who may be self-isolating.

Home visits for clipping and/or nail trimming also still available (subject to Covid-19 restrictions and guidelines).


No one yet knows for certain how or when life will return to normal or, as it's now being branded the 'new normal'. But when it does, and in whatever form it takes, Sit 'n' Stay will be ready and waiting to fulfil all your petcare needs.


So, to help you begin to make tentative plans we are now taking

for dog boarding, doggy daycare and home visiting service for cats

and small domestic pets (including chickens), as well as dog walking!


We won't hold you to anything in these uncertain times. But for so many of us who have had to cancel holiday plans, visits to events, or special family occasions, the prospect of sooner or later being able to reschedule these provides a glimmer of hope and something positive to look forward to.


Even if your plans are not, or cannot yet be finalised, but you're starting to think ahead about petcare requirements, we are happy to discuss these with you and take provisional no deposit bookings on a first-come-first-serve basis.


Please note: For home boarding and doggy daycare services we will

re-commence obligatory meet-and-greet sessions once lockdown and social distancing restrictions have been eased or lifted and it is deemed safe to do so.


Similarly, our home visiting service will resume once restrictions allow, so you won't need to rely on the goodwill of friends and neighbours, or worry about booking a place at your local cattery!


Cats, as well as any other small domestic pets, can stay in their own familiar surroundings, safe in the knowledge they will receive regular visits for feeding and fuss. Plus, we'll keep in touch to let you know that all is well back home!


Please contact us for availability and to discuss your requirements. Provisional bookings will be taken in good faith and no deposits will be required until such time as you know for certain your holiday or event plans can and will go ahead.




For more than 20 years Sit ’n’ Stay Petminding has provided a professional, ethical and dependable service for pet owners.


Even in these unprecedented times we will continue to do what we can for you should you need us.


While many well-meaning and public-spirited members of the community have come forward to offer help to pet owners, it is unlikely that their services, such as emergency transportation to vets or doggy daycare, are covered by appropriate insurance, licensed by local authorities, or conducted under the strict care and safety guidelines to which registered, professional petminders must adhere.


Please think carefully, even in times of crisis or emergency, before entrusting your beloved pet to anyone not equipped or experienced in transporting animals or providing a safe and secure environment in which to board them - even for short periods of time.


When the Covid-19 pandemic is over Sit ’n’ Stay Petminding will still be here, committed to providing the standards of service and care you rightfully expect for your pets.


For emergency support only (home boarding, doggy daycare or transportation to and from vets only) while the current restrictions are in place please call 07749 660738.
We will resume our dog walking service once the relevant restrictions are lifted.

It has come to my attention that since January 2020 a start-up dog boarding and walking service based in Llanbradach, Caerphilly has been operating under a name almost identical to the one I have traded as for more than 20 years.


In an attempt to avoid any confusion (particularly among former clients and those from the Caerphilly and north Cardiff areas to whom I continue to provide a range of petminding services), I would like to make it clear that the person(s) running this new enterprise is unknown to me and that there is no association or affiliation between my business, Sit 'n' Stay Petminding, based in the

Vale of Glamorgan (but previously in Caerphilly) and the one of similar name now trading from Llanbradach.


Please be aware of this when making enquiries, bookings and on-line searches.

Thank you.

We are taking (tentative) bookings for the summer holiday period, the remainder of 2020 and in 2021, despite the uncertainty surrounding long-term travel plans in light of the current Coronavirus pandemic.


Also, if you live outside the area but are planning to fly from Cardiff Airport, then why not drop your dog(s) off on the way?

I am less than 10 minutes from the airport terminal and even closer to some of the long-stay parking facilities, and you could also be reunited with your best friend soon after landing and before heading home!


Please don't hesitate to get in touch to discuss all your petcare requirements.


You may have noticed it's been a bit wet just lately … and that means mud!



If you want to keep your dog looking (and smelling) its best but could do with a bit of help, why not book a bath and groom and a clip? I can presently visit you in your own home. Small/medium-sized breeds and elderly or nervous dogs a speciality. Call to request a home visit.

Have you ever wanted to be able to cut your own dogs nails, but were unsure how to go about it?

I can come and show you how to go about it in the comfort and convenience of your own home. Learn to cut nails with confidence. Ideal for nervous or elderly dogs for whom a trip to the groomers may prove too stressful.
