Our reliable petsitting service is the answer you've been looking for. Whether a one-off or a regular arrangement, you can rely on us to care for your pets in your own home.

Holiday pet sitting services

Cat infront of fireHolidays can be a real heartache for loving pet owners. Although we have nothing against traditional boarding establishments ourselves, we've simply never considered them an option for our pets. We know that many other pet owners feel the same way. It often falls to friends and family members to look after pets while their owners are on holiday because there is no other reliable alternative...until now!

Using VIP means your pet stays in the comfort of their own home so that all the sights, sounds and smells are familiar. Older pets and those with nervous temperaments benefit the most from this service.
