*** Sherri Glass • Stillwaters Airedales - Clyde, OH
At Stillwaters we believe in good temperaments, working abilities, and the AKC standard. Our breedings are carefully planned and selected to maintain and improve the Airedale breed. All parents are OFA hip or Penn Hip x-rayed. Our puppies are raised in our home and extensively socialized. We perform personality tests, and selectively place puppies according to their individual personalities to match their new family's lifestyle. All of our pups are vet-checked, microchipped, and have all the appropriate shots & de-worming before going to their new homes. Puppies are sent home with a contract, a "puppy-pack", and AKC registration.

Our first litter was in 1974. After hunting our Airedales on our farms through the years, we entered our first hunt test in Illiniois in 1998 and our first Conformation Champion in 2002. Our goal is to breed versatile AKC Airedales that can perform in any venue – in the ring, in the field... and on the couch!

Since the mid 1980’s, Quantum Airedales have excelled as intelligent, fun and protective family companions. In 1991, they successfully entered the conformation ring, obedience and hunting events, depending on their owners’ interests. In order to facilitate motivational training, clicker training is started with weaning, and crate training is started upon leaving the whelping box. Puppies are loved, exposed to professionally created noise recordings, music, a variety of play environments and car travel. Medical care is provided by veterinarians, and all AKC and ATCA guidelines/rules are followed.

The Airedale came to America shortly after its development in England (1860's–1879).
In the early 20th century, Americans' appreciation of the Airedale's hunting heritage was summarized in 1916
by Warren H. Miller (longtime editor of Field and Stream) in his classic book The American Hunting Dog.
"On the borderline between the bird dog and the fur dog stands the Airedale", Miller wrote,
"...the dog that can hunt both ... and the one who can and is being
successfully trained to hunt everything alive that can be hunted."

** Rhae & Cary Drijber • Fyrebrick Airedales - Raymond, NE
My husband Cary and I have been involved with Airedales for over 20 years. We have participated in all Airedale activities – conformation, obedience, hunting, tracking and agility, and, in our opinion, they are all around great dogs! Several have titles in these events. Our dogs are American and/or Canadian Champions and thus conform to breed standard. Parents are cleared for hip dysplasia by OFA or Pennhip. Temperament is very important to us & all of our dogs are housedogs and must get along with each other – and with other dogs. Our puppies are raised in our family room and we spend considerable time exposing them to new situations. Puppies are vaccinated, microchipped and AKC registered before going to their new homes.
