1-2-1 Masterclass – Learn How To Groom Your Dog In 1 Day


For all of those “hands-on parents” of dogs, we provide 1 to 2-, or small groups, lessons in our state of the art salon, where we teach you best practice on how to look after, maintain, and groom your dog’s coat.

We start off by teaching you how to bathe your dog – this is the foundation of what makes the groom look great but also makes it gentle for your dog during the grooming process – minimising tugging, pulling and hurting your dogs skin due to matts & tangles.

We use organic shampoos and conditioners, if your dog has sensitive skin or has allergies we have a special organic range of hypo allergenic treatments.

The next stage is to blow dry your dog’s coat; we will show you how to do it efficiently and effectively, without a fully dry coat, tangles and mats will live on under the coat making it impossible to clip and painful for your dog.

The “brushing out” stage follows from here – this is where the coat is brushed out ensuring there are no mats or tangles left – seeing the hair go from curly to straight leaving a beautiful knot-free coat for the grooming to take place.

From here the grooming process begins – this includes full body clipping, scissoring, nail trimming, ears cleaned, hygiene area trimmed and under the pads cleaned & clipped.

By the end of the day spent with us you will be fully competent to groom your dog – you will leave our salon confident with using clippers and scissors and will know how to brush and bathe your dog regularly.

1-2-1 Masterclass Follow-Up Session


If after having attended our “Learn How to Groom Your Dog” Masterclass you would like to perfect certain aspects of the grooming process, we provide a follow up session. You may need help with brushing, de-matting, or extra time spent on body clipping getting the cut just how you want it to look.

Whatever your need, we use this follow up session to focus on specific points based on your confidence and what area you would like to improve on. We can provide this follow up session on a 1-2-1 basis or as a small group.

Hand Strip Masterclass


Hand stripping is a skill that is required for wire haired dogs, it is a speciality that is not always easily found so being able to hand strip your own dog will help you save time and money in the long run and will help keep your dogs coat trim throughout the year.

This session will show you the techniques used to hand strip, you will learn the whole process of how to bathe and groom your dog – which includes nail clipping, ear cleaning and hygiene area.

Testimonials from some of our happy customers

After a horrific experience at a previous groomer Louisa was recommend to me! She is FABULOUS!
I’d never go Anywhere else, I cannot recommend her highly enough. So much time and effort perfecting the groom, my Maltese Betsy comes home smelling incredible and looking glorious! I often ask advice on how to prevent matting etc and Louisa is so willing to help and so reassuring. Betsy is an extremely nervous dog but Louisa is so loving and caring that she’s put at ease, so much time and effort is put into her haircut every time I go and it shows!
I recommend Wagtails of Weybridge all the time as people comment on how lovely Betsy looks after her groom. Wouldn’t trust anyone else!!

Daisie and Lillie are my 2 adorable cockapoos.They have just had the most wonderful grooming experience at Wagtails. Louisa was absolutely wonderful with them and she had such a lovely manner and caring way about her. It was our first experience with Louisa and we couldn’t have been happier. The dogs looked absolutely gorgeous when I collected them with the nicest haircut they have ever had, cute little bows on their collars and smelling divine. They seemed so happy with Louisa. I would highly recommend her and we will definitely be booking in again for their next haircut.

Thank you so much for the fabulous job you did today grooming Mason.

He still smells amazing even after a long walk, better still there are no stray hairs falling all over the house like dead pine needles from a Christmas tree on Boxing Day! He seems very chilled out since I collected him, it must have been the massage you gave him as you washed him, either that or the fragrance he came home wearing has calming properties.

He will now be a monthly regular at Wagtails for sure, I cant fault the service.

Amazing! Never been happier with the results and how lovely our Bugsy looks after being to the groomer. Louisa listened to any concerns I had and any specific requirements such as shape of head and cut of ears, as Poochons can be hard to groom. Thanks Louisa, already booked for next visit! Couldn’t recommend enough!

Hi Louisa, I am so pleased with the grooming you did on Herbie, he lloked and smelt gorgeous after and still does! Definately a lot less hair coming off him. Will be back for sure.


Hi Louisa, you have made one of the members at the golf club I work at so happy!! You groomed Scarlett for her and she says she has never looked as good or smelt as good as she did and she says she was so calm and not traumatised! I recommended you to her last year! Thank you.

If you are looking for a groomer where your dog is not treated as just one of many…Wagtails of Weybridge is the place!  The  ‘Mutt Hut’ is clean and quiet, and  Louisa treats your beloved pet like her own. She did a great job on my cocker spaniel, who came back looking very smart, and smelling divine after a happy and stress free experience.


“Fantastic groomers, Louise is super friendly and always makes Rupert smell and look amazing!”

Hi Louisa, just a quick text to say thank you so much for looking after Freddie yeaterday. He looked so smart and was so happy when he came home – thank you again and we will definately be booking him in again with you!


Ruby is a Cavachon (King Charles & Bichon), our previous groomers made her look like a poodle but Louisa listened to my requests and retained her character with a wonderful cut and groom. Again for Amber, Cockerpoos are very lively but Louisa’s calm and gentle touch encouraged her to behave and resulted in her second only groom, being a happy experience and a very pretty result.


“Thank you very very much for grooming Doug (Labradoodle puppy) so wonderfully and also for obviously looking after him so well. He was very content so a big thank you for making his first grooming experience really positive.”
