ABOUT OLDIRON AIREDALES
You are invited to visit us at Oldiron Park and meet all our Airedales to give them a hug or a ball game.
We do all appropriate health checks and of course our well fed Airedale babies are wormed, vaccinate and microchipped before they leave us. All we can do, we do.
We give our Airedales their first trim free and are always available for help with grooming for showdogs. An Airedale trimmed a couple of times a year will not shed hair and is great for people with allergies
You will be able to board your Airedale where our Airedales board.
We are available to give help and advice for he LIFE of your Airedale pup. Before you even consider an Airedale for your family you must be sure you have TIME to spend with it.
We have had Oldiron Champions in six different countries and every state in Australia so sending healthy pups interstate is not a problem. We have a reputation to protect. American and Australian Champion Oldiron Margaret River became the Breed record holder (Biggest winning Airedale Ever) when she went to America. In Australia she was handled to many of her best wins including Top Victorian Terrier Puppy by 13 year old Claire Tyler. English and Australian Champion Oldiron One in a Million is the first and only Australian Airedale to get her English title.
Dual Champion Oldiron It's Ben is the only Dual champion, winning at shows and obedience in Australia.
A great showdog wants to please it's owner. It is obedient. It tolerates all kinds of other dogs and all kinds of people and kids. It puts up with grooming, travelling and sleeping in strange places. It just wants to enjoy what you enjoy. The perfect temperament for a family pet!
We support Airenet, the tireless team that Rescue and Re-home Airedales in need. We intend that they should never be bothered with an Oldiron Airedale as we are happy to care for any of our dogs while we re-home them, if their owners should be unable to continue to care for them
