What our customers think
I have been using VIPPIES for approximately 8 years, my dog is always so excited to go and doesn't want to leave when I pick him up! They are professional, reliable and very knowledgeable when it come to animals. There have been a few occasions I've been stuck at work and worried about my dog, so I have contacted VIPPIES and they've always gone to check on him. In 8 years I've have not trusted anyone else with my dog bar VIPPIES. Excellent Service, I will never use anyone else.
We have now been using VIP's for a year. They saved the day for us just before our daughters wedding. Rosie was looked after really well and didn't seem too stressed! Ever since Sheena has ALWAYS come up trumps when we need her. We know that Rosie is happy and has learnt to socialise with other dogs and humans. Thanks too her parents who love having Rosie almost as much as we do. Here's to many more years and a happy relationship between VIP's, Rosie and us.
I would like to thank Sheena and Rob for looking after my darling boy, Rhuben. I first found VIP around three years ago and each year they have enabled me to take my holidays knowing that Rhuben is being very well cared for in one of the homes Sheena has vetted. I can honestly say I go away with peace of mind. It's probably fair to say without them I would not go anywhere, use with absolute confidence.
Vips has been a brilliant service for me. Everybody is so helpful and friendly and Lotty my dog just loves going to stay. She is so well looked after and when I need help with a dog walk or a home stay at short notice they ALWAYS try and help and find a way to accommodate me. It really is a fab team of people at vips. I am not sure what I would have done without them. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a great value for money service that comes with a smile. Your dog will never be happier !
VIPs have looked after our dogs quite a few times now and I cannot believe how relaxed the dogs are when we collect them - in fact they don't don't seem to want to leave! VIPs treat our dogs sensitively and lovingly and we trust Sheena and her team of carers to make sure our dogs are happy and healthy whilst we are away. Many many thanks.

VIPPIES are brilliant. My dog is a rescue dog and very nervous, but the team were so patient with her. We met beforehand to discuss her needs. It is a huge thing trusting someone with you beloved pets. I know with VIPPIES she is in the best care as she can have solo walks. She loves her staycations with them and I can relax know she is in the best care.
Provided excellent day care for my 4 month old Cavalier puppy at very short notice - really glad I gave VIPS a call! Charlie loved his visits and I believe they genuinely enjoyed having him. Would use again and can thoroughly recommend.And many thanks to Lynn who took such good care of my (now!) three dogs when we went to London for the day. Communication was excellent and I could feel confident that Charlie, Lucy and Freddie were safe and happy and enjoying interaction with her own lovely dogs. Thank you again!
First aid course was excellent and easy to take in, run by instructors who are very passionate about animals. This course has given me the know-how and confidence to go on and become a competent pet first aider.
Vippies came highly recommended to us from a very good friend who is exceptionally particular about who looks after her dog. If our friend says they are good then they must be so we decided to try them with our 6 month old puppy. They arranged for us to go on a meet and greed visit to ensure he would settle in. We were able to go on holiday safe in the knowledge that he would be treated as a member of their family whilst we were away. Vippies sent us regular photos and short videos so we could see how he was doing and he loved it!
What can I say? Totally reliable, friendly, caring and trustworthy, we wouldn't have anyone else care for our cat. We can go away knowing he will be well looked after and is safe and unstressed in his own surroundings. Supported by his individual care plan, visiting carers always leave a written update. But they do so much more. See to our bins, gather up the post, open and close curtains and water plants. Vippies are more than commercial carers - they are customer focussed, part of the local community and highly skilled professionals. Highly, highly recommend.
I love VIPPIES and so does my dog! As soon as we get out the car she knows exactly where she is and gets totally over excited! Every time I send Betty here she has a great time, and I have absolutely no worries about leaving her in their care. VIPPIES go above and beyond to care for your pet, and have such great advice to share. I would recommend them to absolutely everybody.
We were able to leave Alfie (Springer Spaniel) knowing that he would be well looked after for a day. This enabled us to attend a function where we were unable to take him, without the need to worry about his welfare - we knew that he would be fine. Thank you so much for looking after him so well.
We were recommended to Vippies by a friend as I have two dogs one of which is of a very timid nature. We had a meet and greet with Carol who was going to be fostering Holly and Riona and lots of questions were asked about their needs, care and also personalities which I found reassuring. When I left them on the morning of my holiday I was very worried but within a couple of hours Carol had sent me a video of both dogs playing in her garden and obviously happy. She continued to do this periodically throughout the time that they were with her and when they came home they were still happy and I would use Vippies again without hesitation.
Vippees provide a wonderful dog walking service that gives owners absolute piece of mind. The service is great value for money and our regular walker Denise and back up walker Mike are fantastic. I cannot rate the service high enough and from an administrative point of view, the company are so organised and professional, I would highly recommend the company.
I've used Vippies for several years and they always give me exceptional peace of mind that my cats are in good hands while I'm away. Would recommend to anyone with pets!
Although an ad hoc user of walks and day care, vippies have never let me down. They clearly love their job and the dogs love them. I would not hesitate in recommending them.
Thank you for looking after my rabbit and my two budgies I didn't have to worry because they was very very well looked after by Jade. I strongly recommend Vippies pet care service because they do a excellent job they go on the call of duty.
Leaving Tyler with someone was a massive step for me but within minutes of meeting Barry I knew he was the right person. Tyler stays with Barry at his home and is treated like one of the family. I get regular updates "from Tyler" which is so sweet and reassuring. Tyler gets lots of love and affection and I know he is spoiled rotten. I cannot recommend enough.
Rhubarb has been attending VIPPIES since not settling at another Day Care. the level of care and contact is honestly second to none. He loves his time there and trots off without a backward glance. All of the team are amazing and clearly love what they do. Exactly as it say on the tin....A home from home service where you know you furbaby will be exceptionally well looked after and adored. Would highly recommend.
Took great care of our pointer. He had a great holiday. Would recommend anytime.
We have a very old dog and don't trust many people with his care, but we always trust VIPPIES. We have used them for short walks for Hamish, an overnight stay in our home with him, to bring him to the church on our wedding day and also last minute bookings. VIPPIES are always able to accommodate Hamish and we know he is always in safe hands. The notes we are left to let us know what he has been up to are lovely. Thank you for your fantastic care, we would recommend you to anyone who wants their pet to be in safe hands.
Maggie has been fantastic once again with my very nervous rescue dog Diego's day care. Although we don't use the service very often, Diego is always incredibly happy to spend time with Maggie. It's clear that Maggie does this work for her love of dogs. Great service also from the team at Vippies.
Once again Luna has been well looked after by Maggie. I wouldn't leave her with anyone else. Maggie is aware of Luna, s health issues and takes very good care of her.
My dog loved her first visit and seems to be friendlier to other dogs since. She is due back this week and confident she will be loved and cared for and of course have fun!
We discovered VIPPIES when our young Jack Russell was recovering from a very serious RTA. She had to be kept on cage rest for about 6-8 wks and then only allowed limited activity for anther 4 wks. She is a rescue with separation anxiety syndrome to further add to the complications. We were just about housebound when a friend recommended VIPPIES. We can honestly say they are very professional, well organised ensuring the pets needs come first, our little pooch just loves going for day care and foster care, She has been very well looked after and it has also been very helpful with her anxiety issues as VIPPIES know how to manage these very well. We can definitely say - Yippie for Vippies. .
We have used vippies now for nearly 2 years, they have been amazing from start to finish, supporting with last minute changes especially when as a youngster our dog struggled with builders in the house, doing extra visits. Without them I can honestly say our boy would not be the same, to his favourite walker dee, thank you for everything, the advice and patience in dealing with first time dog owners! Sheena, jade and Jake have all helped to settle him into doggy day care and get over his anxiety, a dog that hated being touched loves his fun with jade and he now runs in to them all. 100% recommend them to anyone, thank you vippies x.
