ABOUT VIP GROOMING and VIP SCRUB CLUB
Looking for dog groomers in Noe Valley? Look no further. Same great service now in 2 locations!
At VIP it is our mission to provide the best and most thorough dog grooming and bathing services available in San Francisco in a fun and loving environment.
VIP Grooming has been providing quality dog grooming in San Francisco for over two decades! With it’s second location, VIP Scrub Club, in Lower Noe we will be continuing this legacy and are able to add self-serve dog bathing as well. In addition to our Grooming we now offer 3 bathing options: The Works: truly top to bottom pampering and care, The Quicky: when time is of the essence and you just need them clean, and The Selfie: when you want to do it yourself, perfect for in-between full service bathing or grooming (note: The Selfie is only available at our Church Street location)
From the owner Lancy Woo:
What differentiates us
Dog grooming is an art form. This really is a business where you have to love the animals and love the work because it is so physically demanding and emotionally challenging. To be effective and connect with the animal you must come from your heart, always keep your cool and never lose your sense of aesthetic.
We often joke about what has come to be known as “The Way of the Woo” but I truly believe that what sets me and my shop apart is that I always try to come from a zen-like place of love and connection when I work and I train my staff to do the same. It is not just about the work done but the space that we are creating with the animals and each other as we work.
At VIP staff training is not just about procedure and technique, but also about understanding animal behavior and mastering dog handling and control. I personally train all of my staff and we are constantly learning and growing, perfecting our skills and techniques.
At VIP we operate as a family and I consider VIP to be a family business. I treat my employees with respect and kindness and generosity and expect hard work and dedication in exchange. Over the years many of our clients and their dogs have become like family as well. We strive to quickly know each animal, their tendencies, needs, likes, dislikes etc. We treat each animal with the love and respect that we afford our own pets and enjoy watching them grow and develop throughout the years.
Why we love what we do
I have been a Bay Area groomer for over 20 years and truly love what I do. It is a privilege to work with animals in such an intimate and loving manner. I have lots of training and skill but I think what sets me apart is that everything I do, I do from the heart. VIP is not just my job it is my passion. It is important for me to know that I am making a difference in the life of every dog that enters my doors.
