Margaret and Ian Hancock then took over the running of the business 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 to run and manage the business, 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 welfare standards and exceptional care of the breeding mums and stud dogs, Nutshaw puppies are well adjusted, sociable and healthy.

Our philosophy is simple to ensure that we provide incredible pets –provide the best care possible for our mums and dads, raise our puppies in a loving and caring environment.
