Placing our dogs is not something we take lightly. We feel strongly about responsible dog ownership, and breeding. We have very few litters and when we place our puppies we do so on contracts that protect breeder, buyer, and especially, the puppy and include a Mandatory Return Policy.
We consider dogs to be family members. You must have the time and commitment to own a dog. We like to get to know families prior to placement and we like to keep a solid relationship with the new owners throughout the dog’s lifetime. We make ourselves available to the new owners and always are there to answer any questions they have.
If you would like to be considered for placement on the waiting list for our puppies/adults please fill out our Wait List Questionnaire and email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please save the file to your computer, edit with your information and save it again, and then email it back to us with the document as an attachment.
We provide those on our wait list with our best estimate of when we will have a puppy for them, however, please understand that many factors can change this estimate including whether a breeding takes and overall litter sizes. Being placed on our wait list does not guarantee that you will receive a puppy. Prior to filling out our Wait List Questionnaire, please completely read the information on the FAQ & Policies page. You will certify that you have read and understand the information on that page when you fill out the application.

WHAT ARE YOUR QUESTIONS/CONCERNS?
Please read thoroughly and print your full name where indicated:
We only breed healthy and conformationally correct Airedales with AKC Registration, OFA and/or PennHIP hip score Certification, and attaining AKC Championship Certification for the purpose of improving the breed. All our puppies are sold with spay/neuter agreements and AKC limited registration. 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. We provide those on our wait list with our best estimate of when we will have a puppy for them, however, please understand that many factors can change this estimate including whether a breeding takes and overall litter sizes. Being placed on our wait list does not guarantee that you will receive a puppy. You understand that one half of the purchase price of the puppy is considered as your non-refundable deposit. You agree to notify us if at any time you obtain an Airedale elsewhere or otherwise desire to be removed from our wait list. By submitting this application you agree that this application and its contents including your answers become the property of Woodcrest Kennel LLC and may be used as such provided that your personal contact information is not included in any public use.
