We bought our first Airedale Hildy in spring 2003 and it was love at first bite. We were fortunate as she was temperamentally and physically an excellent member of the breed. After some success in conformation we later decided to breed her. We have also been fortunate that, as relative newcomers, so many experienced breeders, judges and handlers have shared some of their knowledge with us. In breeding Airedale terriers we strive first and foremost for health and temperament soundness and believe that these qualities do not exclude physical beauty or Airedale terrier instinct.
