Dog Sitting in Christchurch

Our sitters are experienced, police checked and insured so your precious pets are in the best possible hands.

In-Home Care

Have you tried putting your dog in kennels and found they came home stressed, tired and not quite themselves? Or do you have the sort of dog that is uncomfortable out of their own space, or is fearful and timid in a foreign environment?

If your dog doesn’t deal well with conventional dog boarding then perhaps in-home dog sitting would suit them better. Rather than packing everything your dog needs to go to a boarding facility and risking them coming into contact with dogs that may be aggressive or will teach them bad habits, how about having a dog sitter care for them in their own environment? That way they are able to remain in their own space with all the sights and smells that comfort them, and have the care come to them.

Your Doggy Stays at Home

In-home dog boarding is perfect for families with more than one dog, that have dogs that are ill or recovering, families with fearful or skittish dogs or dogs that simply don’t react well to being left in a kennel. It’s also perfect for pet parents who worry their dog is not getting the love, care, attention and exercise they need and are accustomed to.

There are several levels of care you can choose from, from twice daily visits right through to us staying in your home overnight with your pets. Visits are designed to engage your dogs brain and also to get their heart pumping, so as much fun as possible is crammed in the time spent with them. Their sessions are not just spent with a sitter watching TV while your dog lays on the floor. Visits are full of all the love, care, attention and exercise your dog needs.

Our Pet Parents Say…

“Lesley has been walking our puppy Dusty for a few weeks now. He absolutely adores her – almost has a heart attack when she comes through the door! I love the email updates that we get after every walk with photos and a wee story of what went on that day. It’s great peace of mind that our dog is being walked and well looked after by someone who truly loves dogs.”

Lynn and Graeme B

“We’re so pleased with Lesley and VIPets, she’s been a real life saver! Our dog loves his walks (don’t they all) and having Lesley take him out when we can’t or even just spending time with him provides great peace of mind. Professional and friendly service, would highly recommend.”

Kate & Rhett P

“Lesley has been helping me out with daily dog walks during a particularly busy time and I just want to rave about how amazing her service is! For my dog Sam it was love at first and when Lesley arrives to take her for a walk she goes nuts. Each time they complete a walk I receive a “dog log” via email with notes and photos of their adventure. I love coming home to a happy, relaxed dog who has had a great day thanks to her Mary Poppins dog nanny.”
