Alfonso R.
Business Owner

Born in Belem, Brazil, Alfonso has studied pet grooming in Germany for two years before studying further in New York City. In addition to being multi-lingual, he often jokes that he also speaks “dog” and “cat”. After completing his upper education, he moved to California where he finished his grooming certification with the San Francisco SPCA. Enamored with the Bay Area, Alfonso then opened Broadway Grooming Clinic in the Old Oakland neighborhood, where he continues to provide local grooming services for all animals to this day.
