In most areas of the country, breeders are difficult to locate. Many breeders are responsible, knowledgeable enthusiasts who will help educate you about the breed and get your puppy off to a happy, healthy start. In recent years, however, the number of Airedale Breeders breeding for pet stores or breeding purely for profit has grown. Breeders who breed irresponsibly may try to sell you an Airedale puppy whose parents were not full-blooded Airedales or that will develop serious medical or behavioral issues, not covered by a health guarantee, after purchase. This type of Airedale Breeder should be avoided. Browse our articles on choosing a puppy and a puppy breeder to help ensure that the you will have the knowledge to choose an Airedale breeder with happy healthy puppies who will come with “technical support” through the puppy phase and beyond. We support both rescues and careful, ethical breeding that upholds this breed’s health and characteristic energy and spirit.
