Our pet boarding services are a great alternative to kennels and catteries and are a home away from home for your pets.
Unfortunately, many pets find kennels and catteries extremely stressful. Often they’re left in cages for long periods of time and they miss the love and cuddles they’re used to at home. And, of course, it’s upsetting for you to leave your beloved pet when he’s distressed.
Our pet boarding services offer a relaxed, cost effective alternative to kennels and catteries, and ensure all members of the family are kept happy.
Your pet will live in the home of an experienced and professional Very Important Pets’ pet sitter who will provide love and care for your pet and treat them as if they were one of their own.
Your pet’s stay will be fun, exciting and, most importantly, your pet will be in a safe and happy environment.
VIPs has been operating in our neighbourhood for a number of years. Having been recommended to countless numbers of clients, never have I heard a bad word against them. The staff are ever-professional (having been recruited even from our own flock!), the services they offer are all encompassing and they really have an ‘animal sense’ about them; meaning pets are at home under their care.

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.

Wendy is wonderful! This was new for us as we have never left our two boys for a week or used a pet sitter before but it could not have been easier. She looked after them beautifully and they were so relaxed and happy when we came home. She kept us updated everyday and we came home to a spotless house. Would love to use her again in the future and will be recommending VIP to our doggy friends!

Carol is an amazing sitter, very committed with her work and she’s is really fond of dogs. She was sending me updates, photos and videos, and at the same time answering my questions almost immediately.
I really recommend her.

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!

I loved the “report card” from my sitter on my cats!I remain very pleased with the service from VIPs. It gives me peace of mind when I am away. Thank you!

Tracey was great! We felt at ease leaving out kitten with her. She came prepared when visited us first and even brought a string to play and connect with your pet. She sent regular updates on the time that we agreed. We had bad experience with the cat sitters from other services, but this time we were 100% satisfied

I feel very blessed to have found Vanessa to look after Boo and Lyla when I was away. I came home to two cats who were very pleased to see me, but not at all distressed. In fact were so unbothered by my absence that there was no additional clingy-ness, no night-time shouting (well, no more than usual), and no colds – all of which have happened when I used a different sitting company and been away in the past. Boo and Lyla are Bengals, with high separation issues, and so this was a real win. They were both marginally plumper, relaxed, more playful with each other, and had clearly been very loved and cared for when I was away. Thank you again!
