 Airedale Terrier Club of Victoria Inc.

 (Dedicated to the welfare and promotion of Airedale Terriers)

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.

3. The current cost of an Airedale baby is between $2,400 and $3,000 on limited register.  Limited register is used for puppies sold as family pets, not for showing or breeding.  Remember, that this does not in any way mean you would be getting an inferior puppy but one that has the same genes, has had the same feeding and upbringing as puppies who are retained for showing.  We do not control what breeders charge, it is up to each breeder to set their costs.

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.
