Puppies & Litters

Litters at Woodcrest are whelped and raised entirely within our home where they receive constant care and attention.  We put a great deal of effort into the early development of our puppies including extensive socialization and handling as well as exposure to varied surroundings and experiences. All our puppies are sold with spay/neuter agreements and AKC limited registrations. All Woodcrest litters are bred to conform to the breed standard as closely as possible. We only breed healthy and conformationally correct Airedales with AKC Registration, OFA and/or PennHIP Certification, and attaining AKC Championship Certification for the purpose of improving the breed. We only have litters where we intend to keep at least one puppy (and often times multiple puppies) ourselves for show and to include in our breeding program in the future, which only benefits you and the quality of your pet Airedale. You can learn about our puppies, policies, and find answers to many frequently asked questions in the FAQ & Policies page of our website. If you are interested in a puppy from Woodcrest please fill out our Wait List Questionnaire and email it to us.  The Questionnaire is used as a jumping off point for conversation and the answering of any questions that you have for us and we have for you.  After we receive your Questionnaire we invite you to visit and meet us and our Airedales.

Woodcrest Kennel LLC is a Professional Show Kennel as well as a full service, all breed dog boarding, day care, and grooming facility located on Sawyer Brook Rd off of Rt. 10 in Orford, NH just 0.7 miles south of the Orford/Fairlee bridge. We are breeders of Best in Show winning Airedale Terriers with puppies available occasionally.

We strive to provide the very finest accommodations and services available in the area. We take great pride in providing a loving and expertly staffed environment for your family's companions. Our facility is new construction and was designed by Jay Atwood for the safety and security of all boarded pets. The facility houses 30 indoor/outdoor runs with radiant heated floor and air conditioning, complete with a full wash down system for all runs. Three sizes of runs are available to accommodate any size dog or allow up to two dogs from the same family to stay together.
Regular grooming is essential to a healthy, happy dog. We offer a wide variety of grooming services for all breeds and all sizes of dogs.

Grooming Rates vary by your dog’s size, condition, and cooperation. These services are also available to clients during boarding stays who wish to have grooming before the dog returns home. Professional full service grooming is provided in a variety of clip styles appropriate to each breed of dog. Please note that due to the demand for our expert grooming services you must schedule your appointments well in advance.
Day Care
Does your dog need a place to stay while you are at work or out for the day? Does your dog need a little extra playtime during the week? If you answered yes, then our day care service is the answer!

Dog day care is a great place for your dog when you are away from home just for the day. Your dog spends time socializing, playing, and exercising with other day care dogs instead of staying at home alone. It is a great option for dogs that need a little extra companionship during the day. Day care is also a great option for your puppy (over 12 weeks old).
