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
We have been Bay Area groomers for over 20 years and truly love what we 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 us apart is that everything we do, we do from the heart. VIP is not just a business it is my passion. It is important that we are making a difference in the life of every dog that enters our doors.

Loved the atmosphere, loved the environment, loved Vicky. That being said, I was a little disappointed because Gryffin’s cut was not nearly as short as I wanted. My husband picked him up so I wasn’t able to see him until later in the evening or else I would have said something. I told Vicky that I wanted it shorter than what she would usually give a Golden Retriever because we can’t get him groomed very often, but I’m afraid he’s going to look the exact same in just a couple of weeks time. Happy to discuss further if you’d like - firstname.lastname@example.org or 330-247-8288. Thank you! Kristine

Alejandro did a great job so grooming was excellent. However, I was told the appointment was scheduled at the Church Street address. When I arrived there I found the location is closed on Wednesday. I called and talked to someone who told me that they had no record of my appt. this was strange because I received and email earlier in the week asking me to confirm my appt. I was then referred to someone who said indeed there was an appt. scheduled for the Douglas Street address.
So the day started off not so well but ended fine.
Great! Merlyn loves the staff and we love how he looks after!

Alejandro has been grooming Mars for about 3 years now and I have to say that after Mars gets groomed he looks better he feels better and acts like a puppy which is important for a 15 year-old dog. They take very good care of him at VIP

Vicky Blanco is the best groomer ever!!! She took the time to listen to all the concerns I had and style I wanted for my long haired little Shih Tzu, Luna. Now she looks so pretty, exactly the way I wanted.
This place is also clean and very welcoming, the staff are so kind and helpful and Luna seemed very happy after I picked her up. Would totally recommend it.
