How to find reputable Airedale Terrier breeders?

It is essential to get your dog from a reputable breeder and avoid puppy mills and greedy backyard breeders at all costs. Although very low prices should always be a huge red flag, even the most expensive puppies could come from bad sellers, and price only is not a sign of quality. Breeders registered with a kennel club tend to be more serious, but again, it is not enough to decide whether a breeder is trustworthy or not. Along the same lines, an unregistered breeder could be excellent.

Here are the characteristics of good breeders:

Small scale operations

  • Usually, only sell one or two breeds, don’t have puppies available all the time, and have experience.
  • Raise puppies in their home since birth and show love toward their dogs.
  • Make sure puppies are handled by different people to be comfortable with humans.
  • Knowledgeable about the breed (temperament, health, nutrition, grooming, etc.), answer your questions.

Transparency

  • Encourage you to meet them, visit their kennel (which should be clean and spacious), and see the breeding dogs and puppies (which should be kept clean, warm, and well-fed). Good breeders tend to only sell puppies to people they have met in person.
  • Willing to share information about their breeding process. Good breeders don’t start breeding dogs under 18 months old and usually stop after 3 to 6 litters.
  • Will ask you to pick up the puppy at the kennel or at least to bring it to you themselves (serious breeder will never ship their puppies or refuse access to the kennel).
  • Will make sure you will be a good fit for their dog (usually by making you fill a questionnaire) and will most likely make you sign a contract spelling out your responsibilities (usually to spay/neuter and sometimes train the dog).

Healthcare

  • Screen their breeding dogs for genetic disorders and keep their vaccine and preventive healthcare up to date (should be able to provide proof, like health certificates, test results, etc.).
  • Take puppies to the vet first the first weeks (and can prove it).
  • Don’t let puppies less than eight weeks old leave their mother.

For Airedale Terrier breeding dogs, the AKC national breed club recommends the following health tests: hip evaluation, ophthalmologist evaluation, cardiac exam, and renal disease DNA test. Ask your breeder for test results.

Check the medical section of our Airedale Terrier article to know more about the most common health issues for this breed and the potential cost, according to Dr. Brooks, DVM.

“As a veterinarian, I think it is ideal that Airedale Terrier breeders have their breeding dogs evaluated or tested for the following conditions prior to breeding and throughout the course of their breeding years: hip dysplasia, eye examination by an ophthalmologist, cardiac evaluation by a cardiologist, autoimmune thyroiditis (blood test). Buyers should ask the breeder about health screening tests performed.”

Leslie Brooks, DVM – Licensed Veterinarian

Guarantee

  • Reputable breeders will be able to provide references from previous buyers.
  • Will keep answering your questions and help after the sale if needed.
  • Will take the dog back at any time if needed and provide a guarantee (usually for health and temperament).

Sellers to avoid

Finally, I would strongly advise against buying a puppy on Craigslist, Hoobly, or similar websites, and even in pet stores (unless they have partnered with a shelter and offer dogs for adoption). The likelihood that dogs you will find there are coming from puppy mills is very high. It supports a very inhuman system and increases the chance of your puppy developing expensive health issues and significant behavioral problems in the future.
