Dont wear your dog!
Why be covered in hair or have your furniture covered in hair? Not a problem with Airedales. Airedale Terriers are considered by some people to be allergy free. The Airedale's double coat is naturally non shedding. If any dog is suited to a person with allergies none would be better than an Airedale (sometimes misspelt Airdale and Ayredale).
The breed's for seniors. Getting ready in life for a less exhuberant dog. The intelligence of the Airedale make them perfect for consideration. Research has shown that owning a dog will reduce chance of heart attack and reduce stress. Recent research has also indicated the value in raising young children with a hairy pet in reducing the set on of some infections and allergies in later life. (DO NOT PUT A CHILD WITH A KNOWN DOG ALLERGY AT RISK BY INTRODUCING A DOG TO THE FAMILY) We believe owning a Tjuringa puppy from us delivered with all our love and experience will boost your quality of life beyond vitamins and additives. A puppy for your later years after the kids have left home can be a lifesaver. And choose a quality boarding kennels as your safe carer when you do the holiday thing your dog will always be with somebody who cares.
Puppies due November 2016 and one three month old male available now.

2009/10 gave Tjuringa great success. By May we had five Tjuringa Airedales in Australia's top ten with Ch.Tjuringa Romper Stomper Number one. (Dogzonline April 2009) His brother Tjuringa Rising High is a regular challenge winner and is to date unbeaten this year by a male Airedale. Beaten however regularly by his stunning sister Tjuringa Razzle Dazzle who is the most regular Best of Bred winner we have had for years. Dispite this her sister Ch Tjuringa Rich List has had the big wins at Group level but as she was rested from shows along with Romper to allow the siblings their turn her best awaits a return to the show scene. But the big one certainly is Romper boasting an All Breeds Runner Up in Show which at the end of 2008 made him the number one Airedale living in Australia. We had great success too with a Welshie seeing Ch Tjuringa Yuletide Angel gain her title very quickly winning at the group level with spectacular success.
BEST IN SHOW. Our star Airedale Australian Champion Tjuringa Firecracker (Bang) won the most prestigious best in show at Hobart Royal Show. This is unprecedented. Bang celebrated Number one Airedale in Australia 2006 year end, and won three Best In Shows in October. also unprecedented by an Airedale! His recent rare appearance in 2007 saw a Best of Breed hatrick at Adelaide International Festival and an applauded group placing. His only outing to date in 2008 saw him win dog challenge at Canberra Royal Show. Bang is retired from the show and stud but his semen is available to approved bitches.
AND 2007 the new young winner is Tjurgina Masterpiece (Retired) is also a major winner at a Royal Show. At the 2007 Royal Geelong Show not only best of breed but BEST TERRIER EXHIBIT. Two years in a row, two Royal Shows, Two Tjuringa Airedales Win Best in Group and both are from the wonderful bitch Ch Tjuringa Queen Bee.
In 2008 Champion Tjuringa Moulten Iron (Retired) is the new star winning Best in Show at Queensland Airedale Specialty and best Dog and Runner Up in Show at the Victorian Airedale Specialty as well as having groups and major in show awards.

Keith Lovell has now judged Airedales in thirteen countries and all Australian states. (Every Airedale Club in the Southern hemisphere) The most significant appointment was for the National Airedale Association of America where he judged 145 Airedales at Montgomery County Championship Show. Perhaps more memorable because England is the home of Airedales Keith became the first Australian judge to judge the Championship show of an Airedale Breed Club in the UK when he judged for the South of England Airedale Terrier Club in 2016. However Argentina, Romania, Finland are included among the exotic countries experienced. There is no question that some of the best Airedales in the world are Australian.
Exciting news is that Airedale, Australian and American Champion Matrasen Zamindar (UK) arrived in Melbourne Quarantine March 2004 and was freed in great condition May 18th. He was shown on May 22 taking best of breed and Runner Up in Group. A great start for a great asset to our breed in Australia. TC has won multiple all breeds BEST IN SHOWS. At the end of 2004 TC remained the Number One Airedale in Australia (OZDOG SYSTEM- all shows) He has puppies from three beautiful Tjuringa litters to boast so far. Four of his puppies are already champions.TC is now back in England in the names of Holbrooks, Dozier and Lovell. However in Australia he is now becoming a grandfather and his son to Australian Champion Tjuringa Queen Bee, Firecracker was the number one Airedale in Australia in 2006 ( Ozdog system) outdoing his father's great successes.
CH. Tjuringa Keepsake gained her title in 2005. "Keeper's" main success was her great win over all Airedale bitches under American Judge Virginia Latham at our Club Show.
Champion Brislines Playboy (Imp USA) is at stud to approved Airedale bitches. "Hughie" is a multiple best in show winning dog. Hughie is sired by American Champion Serendipity Terrydales HK X-F who is the sire of the Montgomery all Terrier Show Best in Show winner 2002. Check Hughie out on the "OUR DOGS" page.
In more recent years we have enhanced the breeds' quality and gene pool in Australia by introducing semen from, in our opinion, the best male of his time in USA and the best male Keith has judged in Europe. Progeny of these two great Airedales are now in all of our current breeding.
As President of the West Gippsland Kennel Club, Keith invites all exhibiters to attend our shows on the Thursday and Friday before the Queen's Birthday weekend in June.
