The Airedale Terrier Club of Victoria Inc. was established in 1929 and is believed to be the second oldest pure breed dog club in Victoria. The Airedale Terrier Club is "Dedicated to the Welfare and Promotion of Airedale Terriers". The Airedale Terrier Club of Victoria is an affilliate of Dogs Victoria, the peak canine body in this state, and therefore The Australian National Kennel Council. As an incorporated association and member of Dogs Victoria the club collectively and members individually are bound by a code of ethics, incorporation law and our constitution and by laws. The finances are independently audited annually.

 The club has had a number of focuses over the years including Conformation Shows, Obedience training and trials, Rescue and Rehoming, Education, Social events for members and Airedales. Each year the Airedale Terrier Club of Victoria will offer several Airedale Terrier experiences. These may include an annual dog show, grooming training, a memorabillia (Airedale specific) event in the Dog Museum, a Beach Picnic, A Bush Walk, a River Walk, Christmas Party with the Airedales and much more.

Persons who have an interest in The Airedale Terrier are welcome to join. Details and forms can be downloaded here as well as the "What is on page" on this web site. One of the many benefits of membership is our breed club magazine, The Airedaler, which is published four times a year.

Apart from the annual championship show all club events are for members only, however, membership forms are available at all events and new members welcomed and encouraged at point of entry.

Airedale Terriers are one of the healthiest of breeds. They are highly regarded as family suitable and while being a capable protector are known to be wonderful with children. Their marvelous coat is about as anti allergenic as a dog coat can be and accordingly requires more grooming care than the coats that spoil your clothes and furniture by shedding. Airedales do not shed. ATCV member breeders breed from hip surveyed stock and in everyway are attemping to improve this wonderful quality breed.

In 1986 there were 534 Airedale puppies bred in Australia in 2005 that figure had dropped to 191. In 2005 10146 pure bred terriers were registered as bred in Australia. The Airedale Terrier while the KING of TERRIERS (and often also the Court Jester) is certainly the best of breeds and now, more often being judged as rare. Consider joining this elite fraternity by being an Airedale owner and Airedale Terrier Club member.

Check "What's On" page for coming events as well as up to date news.

Club History: The Airedale Terrier Club of Victoria commenced in 1929. Our largest ever Airedale Show was 1976 when Arthur Lodge of England was brought to Australia to judge 174 Airedales. This at the time was the world record number of Airedale Terriers at any one show.
