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.


Puppy Groom

Introduce your puppy to the grooming process, for puppies up to 6 months or 26 weeks of age. Prices from £20 depending on breed

A session to acclimatise your puppy to the sights, sounds and smells of the grooming process so that they become comfortable with being groomed, and find a visit to the grooming salon a happy and enjoyable experience.
