One to One Dog Training Classes in London - Very Important Pets

    • One-to-one dog training

  • Our one-to-one dog training teaches you everything you need to know to ensure your dog is always well behaved and happy

    • Why not book individual training on a one to one basis to help you with anything from basic puppy training to recall and loose lead walking?

      Training takes place at your home where your dog is most able to concentrate and then continue outdoors to the park if required as training progresses.

      To enjoy a happy, rewarding relationship with your dog it’s important he’s well trained, well-behaved and knows what you want from him.

      Our experienced dog trainers give you all the tips, advice and guidelines you need to help you understand how your dog learns, what makes him tick and what he needs from you. And what’s more we ensure our one on one dog training sessions are great fun for you and your dog.

      Our experienced and professional dog trainers only use up-to-date training methods – positive reward based training – which are kind and fair to dogs.

      Our One to One Dog Training is carried out with one of our trainers in your own home. We will visit you at a prearranged time for each session.

      Usually for one to one dog training we advise you book a block of 4 sessions to get the most out of the training. Each session is carried out with you and your dog approximately once per week for a 4 week period. Each session we will build on the training and progress the exercises. The first 3 sessions would be at your home and the last one in a local park to put everything into practice.

      • Basic sit, stay, down, come, heel, and leave it for beginners or puppies.
      • For the more advanced dogs, walking off-lead using heelwork, proofing the basic commands and working at a distance.
      • Or help in dealing with unwanted behaviours such as barking, chewing, digging and jumping up.
      • Or why not try some fun trick training with your dog to help build your relationship grow stronger!

    • Bea was absolutely fantastic, a wonderful lady, and our dogs took to her straight away. She took very great care of our dogs, and also of me as I was going for a medical procedure and was home alone, she ensured I was on before leaving. We would be delighted to have Bea take care of our dogs again. Many thanks, as we edge close to our 10 years with VIP, I want to thank you for your continued great service.

    • This was our first time using a pet sitter and naturally I was anxious. However, Janey completely put my mind at rest, the cats warmed to her quickly and kept to their normal routine under her care. I cannot recommend Janey highly enough – both our cats and home were perfectly looked after in our absence. Five Stars, Janey! Five Stars, Very Important Pets!

    • Kieran is extremely professional and cares about making sure my cat is happy and safe. I have had Kieran take care of my cat several times, and now I trust him to the extent that I am willing to plan my travel around his availability!

    • We have never been away feeling so relaxed and confident our dog was in good hands. Mark and his family were so welcoming and reassuring. We had regular updates on Sunday’s adventures and she was returned absolutely exhausted from all the fun. Couldn’t recommend Mark more highly.

    • I couldn’t have felt more reassured and at ease leaving my miniature dachshund with Lucy and her little boy, Rafe, for my first holiday without him! I was having trouble finding anywhere to board my dog as he’s not yet neutered and doesn’t always get along with other dogs so coming across VIPs finally gave me a solution as they offer individual dog boarding with experienced pet sitters. We were matched with Lucy whose home & lifestyle was absolutely perfect for my dog. She kept me updated whilst I was away and he clearly felt right at home as he was in no rush to come with me when I arrived to pick him up! We had a great first experience with Lucy & VIPs and have already booked in for next time we go away!
