 Update 3
Posted 12th May 2020

I'm pleased to announce that Wagtails will reopen from Wednesday, 13th May 2020.

Based on information released by the government on "Monday, 11th May 2020" Wagtails is now open and following Social Distancing guidelines to keep us all safe.

Wagtails is now offering appointments on a first come first served basis to my current client base only.

  • Only one dog in at a time (even from the same household).
  • Collection and drop off service not available at this time.

As you know I have been shut for some time and there are many dogs in need of grooming. I can only accommodate up to 4 dogs a day due to sanitisation procedures so it may take a while to get your dog in for an appointment. Please be patient I will do my very best to work with you.

Thank you for your continued understanding.

 Before attending your appointment please read and ensure you follow the process as detailed on the appointiment procedures page.

Posted 11th May 2020

At present Wagtails Dog Grooming remains closed.

Also, due to the Covid-19 pandemic Wagtails Dog Grooming is cancelling all bookings you already have in place in 2020. I will be restarting the bookings calendar from scratch as and when I'm able to reopen and welcome you and your special friend back.

Based on the announcement from the government on Sunday 10th May I am looking at the options for gradual reopening of wagtails which I will post here in the next week or so.

 Update 1
Posted 29th April 2020

As you are aware, I am currently still closed and will be until the government lift the lock down, this is to keep you my valued customer safe, also myself and my family.

I am currently putting procedures into place for when the time comes to reopen, these will be as follows:

  • Large pen with hook for your dogs lead will be outside the salon (to maintain social distancing).
  • I will put my own slip lead onto the dog (yours will be sanitised with anti bac spray).
  • Your dog will be groomed as usual (I will be wearing gloves, apron and mask at all times).
  • On pick up you dog will be placed back in the pen (freshly sanitised) you can then retrieve your dog (maintaining social distancing).

Payment will have to be made by either bank transfer the day before grooming or alternatively by contactless payment on pick up. Until further notice cash payments will not be accepted, this is to minimise contact in line with current government advice.

I look forward to welcoming you all back as soon as lockdown is lifted, I will be in touch.
Keep well

Posted 24th March 2020

In light of the announcement by the Government on Monday 23rd March to protect us all from COVID-19, it is with regret that Wagtails is temporarily closing its doors until such time as it is safe to re-open.

I have taken this action to protect the health and wellbeing of both myself, my family and my loyal customers.

If you have an appointment scheduled for within the current lockdown period (up to 14th April 2020), it is now unfortunately cancelled. Appointments beyond that date may also be cancelled, but that will depend on future Government advice. I look forward to welcoming you all back as soon as possible.

As further information on the restrictions is published by the Government details i of Wagtails re-opening will be published here.

Please come back and re-visit the site to keep up to date developments.

Stay safe
