Airedale Terrier Club of Victoria Inc.

 (Dedicated to the welfare and promotion of Airedale Terriers)




The Airedale Terrier Club of Victoria Inc. was established in 1929 and is believed to be the second oldest pure breed dog club in Victoria. A Club Centenary celebration is planned for 2029. The Airedale Terrier Club is "Dedicated to the Welfare and Promotion of Airedale Terriers". The Airedale Terrier Club of Victoria is an affilliate of Dogs Victoria, the peak canine body in this state, and therefore The Australian National Kennel Council which is formally associated with International Kennel Administrations. The club and its members are bound by a code of ethics, incorporation law and by our club's constitution and by laws. 

Each year the Airedale Terrier Club of Victoria will offer several Airedale Terrier experiences. These may include an annual dog show, grooming training, a memorabillia (Airedale specific) event in the Dog Museum, a Beach Picnic, A Bush Walk, a River Walk, Christmas Party with the Airedales and much more.

Persons who have an interest in The Airedale Terrier are welcome to join. Details and forms can be downloaded CLICK HERE. One of the many benefits of membership is our breed club magazine, The Airedaler, which is published four times a year.

Airedale Terriers are one of the healthiest of breeds. They are highly regarded as family friendly and while being a capable protector are known to be wonderful with children. Airedales do not shed like most breeds and their marvelous coat is about as anti allergenic as a dog coat can be.  ATCV breeders on our register, breed from hip surveyed stock and in everyway are attemping to improve this wonderful quality breed.

Club Trivia. 

Our largest ever Airedale Show was 1976 when Arthur Lodge of England was brought to Australia to judge 174 Airedales. This at the time was the world record number of Airedale Terriers at any one show.



As a Club charged with upholding the reputation of our breed and breeders, we sought advice from our breeders regarding the what they feel is the safest way to ensure that you get a pure bred, registered puppy.  Here is the result.

Say no to puppy scams by following the guide below

1.  When looking for your new family member, check the club webpage for a list of approved breeders.  This list will also show who currently has puppies and all breeders listed are happy to discuss their future plans and give you some guidelines on when they could be expecting their next litter.  To be on this list breeders must be able to assist you with things like grooming, training and if you are purchasing for show they have committed to guide you through the process involved.

2. We do not recommend payment of a reasonable deposit until the puppies are born.  You may not get to ‘pick’ your puppy until 8 weeks when the breeder will have assessed the litter and decided which puppies are staying for showing and to continue the high quality of the breed.
