Frank Hancock originally created the business back in 1971, at this time the kennels was a small boarding kennels which only operated during the peak months of the year (mainly July wakes weeks) and specialised in breeding Yorkshire Terrier puppies.Get in touch
Margaret and Ian Hancock then took over the running of Nutshaw Kennels and invested heavily into the kennel buildings and created an excellent reputation for the breeding and selling of puppies and the boarding of dogs and eventually cats when the new cattery was built in 1998.
Now in the third generation of the family business to run and manage the Nutshaw Kennels, Dale and Nicola Hancock still provide excellent boarding facilities for their visiting guests, but offer a welfare orientated approach to the breeding of pet puppies. With the highest regard to dog and cat welfare standards and exceptional care of the breeding mums and stud dogs, Nutshaw puppies are well adjusted, sociable and healthy.
Nutshaw Kennels philosophy is simple, to ensure that we provide incredible pets –provide the best care possible for our mums and dads and raise our puppies in a loving and caring environment in our purpose built accommodation, surrounded by green fields and reservoirs in Burnley, Lancashire.
We have many happy customers who have recommended us over the years to friends, family and work colleagues with many of the puppies which we sell coming back to join us for holidays in the boarding kennels.
