Quality Dog Grooming Care


Regular dog grooming is important for the health and well-being of any dog and I believe this should be a positive experience for your pet. Wagtime Dog Parlour in Speeton achieves this by building up a relationship with each dog, getting to know their individual needs and accommodating those needs with particular care and attention.


Reliable and Trustworthy

 Wagtime Dog Parlour is a small dog grooming business based in Speeton village near Filey. The business is based at home and run by me, Teri Kirk and opened in September 2018 following the completion of my City & Guilds Diploma in Dog Grooming. The parlour is fully equipped to meet the needs of various sized dogs offering a calm and professional environment.



Satisfaction Guaranteed

My priority is to take the time needed to give each dog a positive experience whilst in my care. I achieve this by providing a one-to-one personalised dog grooming service where your dog will be the centre of attention; I only ever have one dog at a time in the parlour.  

Your dogs happiness and care is my priority and I strive to provide a service I would want my own dogs to receive.       

Reiki at Wagtime


Reiki for Dogs


Reiki is a hands-on healing method that originated in Japan. It is based on the idea that all living beings have life energy flowing through them. When life energy is high, your dog is healthy and balanced, more relaxed and less likely to get sick. When it is low, they’ll often be more easily affected by stress and less resistant to illness. Reiki can be used whilst grooming a dog to help to promote wellbeing by channeling healing energy through the hands to the dog through a light touch either directly on the body or from a distance.  Animals are naturally receptive to the Reiki energy and tend to gravitate towards it. Some dogs may initially prefer to experience the energy from a slight distance, rather than having hands directly on them.

Benefits of Reiki whilst grooming a dog.

  • Can help with behaviour issues by promoting relaxation and stress reduction.
  • Reiki is extremely beneficial for animals with a history of abuse. The gentle touch and the energy can help restore trust in dogs who have learned to associate touch with being hurt.
  • Provides comfort and relieves pain, anxiety and fear for terminally ill animal.

Puppys First Groom

Preparing your puppy


Many puppy parents make the mistake of waiting until their puppy's are six months of age or older before taking them for their first groom. However, the general rule is just as long as they have had all of their vaccinations they are ready for their first groom.

Wagtime offer a puppy groom which I try and keep short & sweet, which includes:- 

· Bathing

· Light brush out

· Nail trim (I don’t cut the nails fully, just snip the ends off)

· Ear cleaning

· Light trim where needed, such as around the face.

Starting slowly will enable your puppy to see the groom as a pleasant experience rather than a scary place to be with us eventually building up to a full cut and other more elaborate services. 

It normally takes two to three sessions for your puppy to become totally acclimated and comfortable with the grooming process. 


Call 07584 977801 to ask any questions or to book an appointment.

Wagtime Policies


Wagtime will always aim to provide the best dog grooming service/experience for you and your dog. However, to achieve the best possible standards and service of dog grooming and animal care I have a set of policies to which I adhere to. Please see policies below: -

Health Conditions 

Allergies and Sensitivities: Your dog's safety and comfort are my primary concern. Please advise me of any allergies, sensitivities, or pre-existing medical conditions so I can avoid aggravating these situations during the groom. 

Wagtime understands that some dogs are extremely sensitive to certain grooming procedures such as nail trimming and/or ear cleaning. It is not my intent to cause your dog discomfort, so although these are routine procedures normally performed for the well-being of the dog, I will not continue with any grooming procedure that will cause pain or discomfort to your dog. Sometimes, for a more sensitive dog, these procedures are best left to the care of a veterinarian. 

Matt Removal

Dogs with matted coats need extra attention. Matts left in a dog’s coat only grow tighter and in serious cases can cause a lot of harm. In these circumstances to de-matt would cause the animal stress and discomfort and therefore clipping the coat short is quicker and gentler on the dog. Dogs can be traumatised by lengthy and uncomfortable de-matting sessions and it can put them off the grooming process for life.  

Excessive matting requiring the coat to clipped very short does include risks of nicks, cuts or abrasions due to warts, moles or skin folds trapped in the matts. The after effects of matt removal can include itchiness, skin redness, self-inflicted irritations or abrasions. 

Prevention is the best defence against matting by scheduling regular grooming appointments and maintaining your dog’s coat at home between grooms.  Excessive matting can be avoided with regular brushing and grooming please do not hesitate to ask and I will be happy to show you some brushing techniques for mat prevention. 

There is an extra charge for matted dogs as it is a lengthy and risky process which also causes unnecessary stress to your dog. I will not take responsibility for any after effects or injury caused by matting and you will be required to sign our Matted Coat Consent Form prior to the groom taking place.


If you suspect your dog has fleas then please ensure your dog is treated before bringing them in for their groom. If fleas are found during the grooming process, then unfortunately I will have to request that your dog is collected as soon as possible as I will be unable to carry on with the groom. 


Grooming equipment is sharp so, even though I use extreme caution and care, there is always the slight possibility that an accident could happen.  This may include cuts, scratches, over-trimming of nails, etc. In most cases this happens when a dog tries to move around without warning. If you arrive to pick up your dog and they are still being groomed, please do not talk to them or allow them to see you until the grooming session is finished.

In the event of a significant, grooming-related injury I will take your dog to the nearest veterinarian immediately.

Completion Time

A typical dogs groom can be completed in 2-4 hours from the time of your appointment. If your dog has behaviour issues or skin and coat problems, it may take longer. If you need your dog returned by a certain time, please let us know prior to the groom. 

Older Dogs 

I will use extra care and patience for older dogs; however, I will not be held responsible for any reaction due to the mental or physical stress of grooming the geriatric dog. If I feel brushing or clipping is causing too much stress to the dog, I will modify or terminate the groom. Please be sure to notify me of any health conditions that might make your dog uncomfortable during the bathing, drying, or clipping phases. 

Any grooming which takes place on an elderly or frail dog is conducted at your risk.
