Done fast and with the cut asked for. I would definitely recommend VIP grooming. Also she had the best price for both my dogs.

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 and cat 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.
