If you or any member of your household have:

  • COVID-19
  • suspected COVID-19

then please

  • DO NOT visit the salon.
  • DO NOT get anyone else to bring your dog as the virus can live on the dogs coat for up to 72 hours.

This is both for my safety and that of my other customers.

About Wagtails

Hello and welcome to Wagtails Dog Grooming website. Wagtails was established in 2014 and quickly became a successful business. My name is Tracey, I am a fully qualified and insured one to one dog groomer specialising in small to medium breed dogs.

I work from my home on Highwoods Colchester.

I make sure that every individual dog gets the utmost time, care and attention during their grooming process. Your special friend will get a relaxing, pleasant and stress free experience. It is important to me that both my clients and their dog are happy with the service I provide and listen to the requirements of each individual.



  •  One to one service, personal and individual grooming sessions.
  •  No customer overlap, only ever one dog in at a time (unless from the same household).
  •  No cage dryers, hand dryers only.
  •  We use cruelty free, all natural shampoo and conditioners.
