In February 2001, I opened Clippendales, a full service pet grooming salon, on Ridge Avenue in Roxborough. Early on I realized that not crating my little clients offered a much more pleasant grooming experience, not just for the client, but myself, as well. For most, a visit to the groomer was not an unpleasant experience; but a day to play with their pals. We gradually evolved from just grooming to grooming and daycare. And now, we've finally found the perfect place to do both.
