Stonecellar started as a small breeding operation for Shetland ponies in the mid-90s, founded by the late Mrs Carol Shaw and her partner. The name was adopted from the partner’s dad’s old farm in Washington, which was eventually taken over by the New Town development. The couple’s passion for animals led them to have numerous adventures with their ponies and create lasting friendships.
In the early 2000s, they became some of the first breeders of Labradoodles, and even sent 32 of the pups as assistance dogs to Herpine in The Netherlands. They continued to use the prefix of Stonecellar for the pups they bred. Sadly, Mrs Shaw passed away in 2018, but her legacy lives on through the new business venture started by her partner in her memory.
The love for dogs has always been a driving force for the couple. They owned three beautiful Skye Terriers who earned 2nd place awards at Crufts in both 2018 and 2019, a testament to their dedication and care for their animals.
The new Stonecellar Doggy Day Care & Hotel venture will continue the couple’s legacy and passion for animals. The team is excited to welcome new furry friends and their owners, and to create new memories and lasting friendships.
