Litters produced by Joval are done with the goal of improving the overall health of the breed.
We strictly conform to the
AKC Airedale Breed Standard in both temperament and physical characteristics.
Since all of our placed puppies are done so as companions, we need to make sure they will live long, happy & healthy lives
as members of their new homes through binding spay/neuter placement agreements.

If you are interested in a puppy complete our Prospective Owner Questionnaire.
You may also visit our Puppy Info Page to read about the process we follow,
and also If you have ANY questions along the way, feel free to email us.

JOVAL Airedales is VERY proud of the Quality of our dogs. That quality is well demonstrated by our success in the show (conformation) ring. Joval Dogs are consistent winners at All Major Airedale Terrier Specialty shows and our dogs have been placed in the Top 10 in the USA for the past 10 years. Over the years we have bred more than 50 Champions in the U.S. as well as numerous other countries.

At the same time, we have enriched the lives of many families through placement of our Healthy, Happy and Fun-loving companion puppies as demonstrated by the many emails, letters and pictures we receive featured in our Testimonials and Gallery pages.

We welcome you to our website and hope it allows you to celebrate and enjoy our Airedales as much as we do.






He's still just so amazing!!! Everyone that has met him comments on his wonderful temperament! We can take him anywhere and he is well behaved! He still loves being carried around but he's growing like a weed so I'm not sure how much longer I will be able too!

We started puppy kindergarten. We are actually doing private lessons .... The trainer was impressed on his first day with all that he could do and said we were already half way done! Of course after this we are going to continue with the obedience training.

This week we switched up his day care and he goes to ... He loves it and gets to play all day!! All of the care givers are so excited to see him in the morning and said he has such a great personality! I can't imagine life without that boy! He is sure exhausted after day care and has to take evening naps! I've attached a picture of him snuggling up last night.
