Tailwaggerz is a small dog groomers owned by myself, Lynsey. My salon is based in Inkpen, West Berkshire. Just a short drive from Hungerford and Newbury. I provide a comfortable and professional grooming experience for your much-loved pet and strive to provide the highest quality service at all times. Rest-assured, your pet's welfare will always come first, alongside my expert grooming service. No matter what size, shape or breed, I believe your pet deserves the very best! Here at Tailwaggerz, I offer everything from a simple bath ‘wash and go’, to a full groom and salon experience with a range of extras (please see ‘services’ for details).
I am a Fully-qualified professional dog groomer, and have a wide cross-breed knowledge base. Whilst it is important to have solid experience of grooming all breed standards, it is also vital to understand dogs. Being able to recognise and address dogs when happy, tired or restless ensures that your dog enjoys the grooming experience as much as possible. From Pugs, Staffies and Rotties who just need a regular bath, or Yorkies, Schnauzers and Poodles who require a specific cut, I cater for all in my new salon designed by a dog lover with safety and comfort in mind.
Dogs have always been a huge part of my life, I absolutely adore all breeds and I love making them look and smell beautiful! I have a very happy Hungarian Vizsla called Pinto who loves to sit and watch other grooms or play at any given opportunity! I encourage using positive reinforcement training to reward your dog during grooming sessions and will strive to ensure your dog has the best positive experience with me. Whilst your dog is in my care they are treated like ‘one of my own’.

Obi had his first visit to TailWaggerz yesterday and he looks and smells fabulous. He was very happy when I picked him up and I knew he had been well looked after and pampered. Thank you so much!
Oscar came to TailWaggerz for the first time today. He isn’t used to being groomed and has issues with his legs but I felt very comfortable leaving him with Lynsey. When we came to collect him, he was super happy and looked fabulous! We will definitely take Oscar back, thank you again Lynsey.
Lynsey had Riley for the first time on Thursday and she did an amazing job with him, I asked for clippers all over and that’s what I got. Riley came back happy and bouncing and looks like a new dog. Would definitely recommend to friends locally.
Lynsey groomed my Westie today for the first time and he looked very smart afterwards. More importantly Lynsey had a kind and quiet approach and he was happy and relaxed when we picked him up. My dog is diabetic and I was pleased to know Lynsey has done doggy first aid training and clearly had an understanding of the condition.
Lynsey has a kind and gentle approach to dogs, she clearly has a wide knowledge on dogs and her enthusiasm shows. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to get their dogs groomed in a calm positive environment.
Lynsey did a fabulous job on Honey. Would definitely use Tailwaggerz again. 10/10.
Grooming your dog starts with a regular regime at home. A weekly brush through and health-check (including nails and ears) will do wonders for bonding with your dog, and will make the grooming experience easier for them. At Tailwaggerz, we are here to give free advice on how to brush and check over your dog. Just ask!
How often should I get my dog washed?
This varies dependent on the individual dog and lifestyle of the dog in question. Aim to leave it no more than twelve weeks, although if you’re ‘up field and down dale’ every weekend, you may want a weekly or fortnightly scrub for your pooch! Grooming can take place at the same time – it’s up to you!
Nails and ears
How often should nails be clipped? Again, this depends on the dog and lifestyle, but most pets benefit from this every four to six weeks. A healthy dog ear will look clean with pink shiny skin in the canal area. Healthy ears do not emit an unpleasant odour and have little dirt or debris trapped in the ear canal.
At Tailwaggerz we offer a puppy pamper package for any puppies between 12 weeks – 6 months of age. It is very important to introduce your dog to the grooming process as early as possible. Your puppy will enjoy a gentle wash, blow dry and brush. We want your puppy’s first groom to be enjoyable and promise a relaxing and positive grooming experience with a lot of love and cuddles!
