Wayside Kennels & Cattery

Chapel Rd, Shefford SG17 5NQ, UK – 01462 813261

Our Angel just had a weeks holiday with Glyn and staff. It was our 1st time leaving her in kennels and could not recommend them highly enough! She was so happy and we could tell she loved her stay. Thanks again to all of you at Wayside and we will see you next year

Glynn and his team at Wayside have been an absolute god send to us and our dogs. As much as we love them to bits, we are the first to admit they're not the easiest of dogs to manage and we spent 4 years of no holidays avoiding having to kennel them. I fully expected a no interaction situation with whatever kennels we used (Bronson suffers from fear aggression towards strangers.) Upon speaking to glynn initially on the phone I immediately felt at ease with his confident can-do attitude and he kindly sent me picture updates on their first overnight stay to reassure me. Nearly 2 years on and we still use Wayside a few times a year and are finally able to have a little dog free time! Bronson has improved dramatically thanks to the dedication and care the team show towards the dogs staying. I couldn't get over on arrival finding my dogs out in the exercise pen with Bronson behaving very well. I fully recommend Wayside kennels and a huge thanks to everyone for their help and their patience with my 2 very difficult and misunderstood but loving boxer dogs Jodie & Greg Arlesey

Henlow Veterinary Centre

22 Bedford Rd, Lower Stondon, Henlow SG16 6EA, UK – 01462 416416

This Vets practise is amazing. They care for the animals like they are their own pets, nothing is too much trouble for them. Our cat Bambi needed an X-ray n everything was explained clearly, even the cost. I can’t thank them enough for everything that they did for us, they were all brilliant n even phoned the next day to make sure that Bambi was doing ok. They are lovely thoughtful people. Bring all your pets here cos they will be looked after superbly. Many many thanks to all the staff who looked after Bambi so well. Xx

Would recommend henlow veterinary centre to everybody near and far, they went the extra mile yesterday to make sure a family dog was okay, after her temperature dropping dramatically and closing at half 6 they all stayed till half 10 to make sure she was better, they are all 5* and brilliant service. Thankyou henlow vets!

Perfect Aquatics Ltd

8 Hitchin Rd, Henlow SG16 6BB, UK – 01462 850822

It would be fair to say this is a work in progress and vast improvement has been made. When they first opened they never had the water I needed which is pretty important for keeping fish, plus their other stock was very low. Happily the shelves are now being stocked and I got both salt and r/o water last time I visited

A very well stocked Aquarium, with living Coral, Tropical Fish, Koi, Shubunkins and other large pond fish. Oh, keep your eyes open for the giant white Koi in one of the tanks, he's a monster. They also store Rabbits, Rats, various Birds, Chinchillas, Guinea Pigs, Dormice and then the more exotic pets from Skinks to Bearded Dragons and Axolotls. They also sell some pretty spectacular crystals as well.

This has got much more humane. The Pet Travel Scheme allows pet animals from certain countries to enter the UK without quarantine, as long as they meet certain conditions. The Scheme also means that people in the UK can, having taken their pets to these countries, bring them back without the need for quarantine
