ABOUT OLDIRON AIREDALES
Our current group of champion breeding dogs are all best or runner up in show winners at both airedale and all breeds shows. Oprah, Torch, Millie, Blanche and Boomer have also spent time at shows winning in Junior handler classes where the kids are judged rather than the dogs. The Airedales learn kids are much more fun and can handle them at important shows including Melbourne Royal Show
We do all appropriate health checks and of course our well fed Airedale babies are wormed, vaccinate and microchipped before they leave us. We give our Airedales their first trim free and are always available for help with grooming for showdogs. 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.
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
