Pet Boarding Services in London, Surrey & Kent - Very Important Pets

    • Pet Boarding

  • 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. Why not try our VIP Pet Boarding services!

      Our pet boarding services offer a relaxed, cost effective alternative to kennels and catteries.

      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.

      We’ll find the most suitable pet sitter based on your pet’s needs and arrange a time for you to meet them.

      Furthermore you can talk to your pet sitter about your pet’s normal daily routine such as feeding, medication and playtime, and whether you’re happy or not for your pet to board with other pets, Children etc.

      After you’ve talked to our pet sitter you can decide whether you want to go ahead with the booking.

      Rest assured your pet will receive the very best care and attention possible whilst living with your pet sitter.

      OUR PET BOARDING SERVICES INCLUDE:
      • Dog boarding
      • Small mammal boarding (caged pets)
      • Parrot and bird boarding
      • Cat boarding

      We also offer Live in Pet Sitting services, where a pet sitter would live in your home.

    • 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!

    • 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!

    • 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.

    • 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!

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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!

    • Tracy is the best and my two cats (who are generally difficult with almost everyone) just love her – thank you!
