About Shenley & Radlett Pet Services
Hello and welcome - I'm Janet Nicholls. As proprietor of Shenley & Radlett Pet Services, I believe that my customers' needs are of the utmost importance. I am totally committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of my work is from repeat business, my "regulars" and referrals.
I am in my 50's and understand the need for absolute reliability when it comes to petcare. I love all animals and have lifelong experience owning and caring for many domestic pets, equines and smallholding animals. I ran my own national housesitting company, HouseMinders Limited, from 1998 to 2010, when I decided to retire from this and concentrate solely on being the local dog walker and offer dog home boarding, dog daycare, cat visiting service and small animal boarding. I have also run/managed my own professional livery yard responsible for the care and wellbeing of 24 horses.
Totally reliable, professional and experienced; I will always turn up whatever the weather in my 4WD and can be totally relied upon to look after my clients' pets in the loving and caring manner they are used to. Through my experience, I can quickly recognise and deal with any sickness, injuries or problems whilst pets are in my care and can make an accurate assessment should an animal require veterinary attention. I have experience of medicating and injecting and have excellent family back-up should the need ever arise, but I am healthy and this rarely occurs - must be the fresh air! I am of course fully insured for public liability, care custody and control, and key cover and carry a Licence to Keep a Boarding Establishment under the Animal Boarding Establishments Act 1963 which can be viewed upon request.
Along with my partner Spencer, also a huge animal lover, we have our beautiful rescue dog Bella, three rescue chickens Grace, Purdy and Harriet, who roam freely most of the time in the back garden; I also own a Welsh Section D Pony who I rescued from a home where she was misunderstood, terrified and hence quite dangerous. After much patience, retraining and time, I now have a rare and wonderful lifelong bond with her - she developed into a loving well mannered pony with huge personality - but horses have fantastic memory so she will never completely forget her past! She is safe for her lifetime now. Previously I have owned numerous dogs, cats, birds, small furries, fish, horses, pigs, sheep plus many others.
You don't have to own a pet for me to call - I am happy to carry out house security checks and plant watering as well.
And don't forget you have the option of bringing your pet (except cats) to me for boarding if a better option for you. I am the only licenced dog home boarder in the Shenley and Radlett area approved by Hertsmere Borough Council.
Have you been let down? I am happy to offer emergency cover where possible - give me a call.
I would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.
With very kind regards,
