First Prize (See Photo)
This wonderful 'bronze' Airedale Head study by the late Canine Specialist artist, Terrence Wilcox* is one of very few produced. *Terry has several works in the Australian Dog Museum and has been extensively successful selling various breeds overseas.
As this art piece weighs almost three kilograms it may be necessary for the winner to pay postage and because of its value, insurance. However club members will make every effort to deliver it at their convenience.
Almost three kilograms and almost 18cm tall, the base being about 8cm. While great art it is also an exceptionally good example of a groomed head study of the Airedale.
2nd Prize
Beswick Porcelain Airedale (High quality and condition and very collectable being well known to connoisseurs everywhere.)
3rd Prize
Sitting 'sand cast' Airedale 11cm high (Black and Tan)
4th Prize
"Airedale" puppy with slipper in its mouth. 10cm high, 'sand cast' and labelled "Country Artists Stafford Upon Avon England"
Be Quick, act fast and be a very lucky winner.




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. A Club Centenary celebration is planned for 2029. 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 which is formally associated with International Kennel Administrations. The club and its members are bound by a code of ethics, incorporation law and by our club's constitution and by laws. 

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 CLICK HERE. One of the many benefits of membership is our breed club magazine, The Airedaler, which is published four times a year.

Airedale Terriers are one of the healthiest of breeds. They are highly regarded as family friendly and while being a capable protector are known to be wonderful with children. Airedales do not shed like most breeds and their marvelous coat is about as anti allergenic as a dog coat can be.  ATCV breeders on our register, breed from hip surveyed stock and in everyway are attemping to improve this wonderful quality breed.

Club Trivia. 

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.
