Broadway Grooming Clinic specializes in stress-free grooming for all dogs, cats and exotic animals by certified pet groomer, Alfonso Rezende. We also offer house calls for senior animals (cats and dogs) who may be unable to self-groom anymore.

Alfonso has been certified by the SPCA in San Francisco as a Professional Pet Groomer, and has studied in animal care schools across the world in Brazil, Germany and the United States.


Established in 2002.

Opened in 2002, Broadway Grooming Clinic has been a part of the beautiful Old Oakland area and has been working closely with other local related businesses in providing local grooming services for the East Bay area. We have even provided grooming and coat detailing for several winners of local dog shows, including the King’s Kennel Club of California in 2005, and the Mensona Kennel Club in 2006.

In 2018 Alfonso established the Broadway Grooming School where you can get hands-on training and earn a professional pet grooming certificate using stress-free grooming techniques.

myselfMeet the Business Owner

 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.
