Since the mid 1980’s, Quantum Airedales have excelled as intelligent, fun and protective family companions. In 1991, they successfully entered the conformation ring, obedience and hunting events, depending on their owners’ interests. In order to facilitate motivational training, clicker training is started with weaning, and crate training is started upon leaving the whelping box. Puppies are loved, exposed to professionally created noise recordings, music, a variety of play environments and car travel. Medical care is provided by veterinarians, and all AKC and ATCA guidelines/rules are followed.

My husband Cary and I have been involved with Airedales for over 22 years. We have participated in all Airedale activities: conformation, obedience, hunting, tracking and agility.  In our opinion, they are all around great dogs! Several have titles in these events. Our dogs are American and/or Canadian Champions and thus conform to breed standard. Parents are cleared for hip dysplasia by OFA or Pennhip. Temperament is very important to us & all of our dogs are house dogs and must get along with each other – and with other dogs. Our puppies are raised in our family room and we spend considerable time exposing them to new situations. Puppies are vaccinated, microchipped and AKC registered before going to their new homes.

Our first litter was in 1974. After hunting our Airedales on our farms through the years, we entered our first hunt test in Illinois in 1998 and our first Conformation Champion in 2002. Our goal is to breed versatile AKC Airedales that can perform in any venue; in the ring, in the field... and on the couch!

At Stillwaters we believe in good temperaments, working abilities, and the AKC standard. Our breedings are carefully planned and selected to maintain and improve the Airedale breed. All parents are OFA hip or Penn Hip x-rayed. Our puppies are raised in our home and extensively socialized. We perform personality tests, and selectively place puppies according to their individual personalities to match their new family's lifestyle. All of our pups are vet-checked, micro-chipped, and have all the appropriate shots & de-worming before going to their new homes. Puppies are sent home with a contract, a "puppy-pack", and AKC registration.

We have a forty year history with the Airedale Terrier, and 20 years as a breeder.  Our dogs tend to run in the 65-85 pound range. Our line of dogs has good innate hunting instincts. We’ve started dogs as young as seven months out hunting late season pheasants, and they only get better with training and experience. We have heard from customers many times:  “That dog you sold us twelve years ago was the best dog we’ve ever had”. Airedales want to be part of the family, and we believe they really are happier with some task like hunting to perform.

I breed from imported, German lines derived from over 20 generations of high-drive working Airedales. Titling in bird work on land and water, raccoon tracking, and achieving Masters Agility Champion, Utility Dog Excellent, Tracking Dog and Rally Dog Excellent titles Eclipse Airedales are bred for working ability, drive, athleticism... and sweetness.

Each of these fine Airedale breeders have many years (some, many decades!) of knowledge and experience with Airedale Terriers, and in hunting and field work.

They breed only occasionally, and produce lovely, hearty, well-balanced and delightful puppies as companion dogs, or those that may be trained for hunting and field work.
