Julia is so amazing! She can work wonders! I usually groom my Lil Yorkie and have only went to a Groomer once and after decided to just buy good clippers and do it myself for the past 10 years but haven't had time lately so I went on Google and searched The Best Groomer in my area and found her... she definitely is! He is prancing around so Happy it's unreal!! If your looking for a Groomer that will treat your dog like their own then VIP Grooms with Julia is the One for you too! 😉 I will definitely tell everyone that has a dog to go to VIP Grooms!! Thank you Julia for making my baby so Happy! YOU ARE THE BEST!!

Very glad that our Havachon can be a customer of Julia's. We have been told by past groomer's that he is a challenge to groom, but with Julia knowing the trick's of the trade is able to get the job done and with less stress on him, which makes me very happy. Karen

Julia is so awesome and takes the time to truly make sure she does what you want. My dog is difficult and doesn't like people much but he loves her and she is so good with him and truly cares about him. She is the only one that has ever groomed him since he was a new puppy and is now 2 1/2 years old. Highly recommend!!

Welcome to VIP Grooms

Grooming services are provided for small to medium dogs in the low stress environment of my home. Pets feel more relaxed in a home and even the most anxious dogs do much better with grooming. If you have young dogs that you want groomed with care, I help coach pets to handle grooming with an experienced hand.

About Me 
I have been providing dog grooming services since 2000, and have run several high volume shops where I also trained other groomers in breed standard cuts. I have also worked in several private shops including boarding kennels. I’ve seen a lot of dogs in my time and I can honestly say, dogs that are groomed in my home are far happier and less stressed than in any other setting. I get to know my clients and work very hard to accommodate you. I do provide services at my home, so booking is by appointment only (same-day appointments sometimes available). I love to spoil my clients’ pets; they leave looking and smelling great, and if moms and dads approve, sporting a new accessory of some sort. I’m not here to up-sell you on additional products. I’m here to give you and your pet a great grooming experience. Be sure to ask how to get discounts!

What to Expect
  • Dogs get groomed in an hour or two depending on size and condition of coat.
  • I will explain pricing and appropriate haircut at check-in.
  • Consultations at check-in and check-out that you can understand and feel comfortable knowing what you’re getting.
  • Security in knowledge that my 20 years of experience in dog grooming mean I know what I'm doing.
  • Pets will only be kenneled for short periods of time if necessary.
  • Owners will be called 20 minutes prior to grooming completion or schedule a specific pick-up time in order to eliminate or minimize the need for kenneling.
  • You will leave with a happy dog with a professional hair cut, and in most cases, another appointment 🙂
  • I also do reminder calls.

What NOT to Expect
  • A bunch of stressed and barking dogs.
  • Miss-handled pets by inexperienced groomers.
  • Pressure to spend extra money.
  • Price surprises at pick-up time.

VIP Grooms Policies
  • Pets must have Rabies and Distemper shots.
  • Small to medium pets less than 60 pounds (except poodles / doodles).

  • In the event of a bite resulting in emergency medical care, the cost of care will be added to the services rendered.
  • We reserve the right to turn away any pet that we feel should not be groomed for any reason.
