Owner of Twickenton (Dog &Cat Grooming) in Dedham, MA since 1/1/78, I continue to enjoy working closely with my staff of 8-plus talented groomers and auxiliary help. My salon is one of the larger grooming shops in the Boston area. Most of my stylists have been with me for over 10 years and some for over 30 years. I also breed and show miniature poodles – black. We have produced several Champions and Grand Champions over the years and will have 2 girls on the show circuit this year.
