JOVAL Airedales is VERY proud of the Quality and Versatility of our dogs.
That quality is well demonstrated by our success in the show (conformation) ring
as Joval Dogs are consistent winners at All Major Airedale Terrier Specialty shows
exhibiting unsurpassed consistency and type and have been placed in the Top 10 in the USA for the past 12 years.
Over the years we have bred more than 75 Conformation Show Champions
in the U.S. as well as numerous other countries.

Joval Dogs are not only pretty to look at - they aslo excel in a variety of specialties such as
Agility, Protection, Search & Rescue
, Bomb/Drug Detection, as well as Medical Assistance & Support.

Our Dogs 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.

Breeding Program Participation & Placement
Please understand...  WE ARE NOT JUST GIVING AWAY DOGS...

The GOAL of this program is to allow Adult dogs to enjoy life sooner within a "forever home" where they can be individually spoiled - while remaining a part of the JOVAL Breeding program. Most JOVAL Dogs within this program are finished Champions in the conformation ring. These are well-behaved adult dogs that have been raised by us from birth and have always lived on our premises. If you are interested in buying one of our well behaved and fully trained adults as part of this program, please read on for requirements and qualifications.

To qualify for this program you MUST:

1) Live close enough to our Northern Virginia Address such that you can easily bring the dog back to us to perform their breeding duties - Generally speaking, that would be within a 2 hour driving distance.

2) Understand that while in the program, females will need to stay with us during the time periods when they give birth and nurse puppies. While Males would not have that length of time away from home, they may be needed for collection or breeding more often and with less prior notice.

3) The Airedale MUST stay on the feeding plan JOVAL uses in-house and remain in excellent body condition to maximize the quality of their health as well as fertility. Further they must be kept current with all routine examinations, vaccinations and medical care/testing as coordinated with the breeding efforts' timing(s).

4) Since the airedale is "in-tact" while in the program, they MUST be "protected" from inappropriate breeding(s) as well as not be rendered incapable of breeding due to illness or surgery. This includes their home having a fenced yard to keep others out as much as keep them in and safe.

All of the breeding activities will be done at our cost and the only commitment from you is to make the dog available for us to do the work. Once their breeding duties are completed, the Airedale will be spayed/neutered and then live out the rest of their life with you - permanently residing in your home.

If you are interested in this opportunity and would like to discuss this further,
please don't hesitate to complete a Questionnaire and contact us at joval@jovalairedales.com.

"Allie & Benjamin"


Valeria, I know I've told you how much I love my aires I purchased from you but I just want to tell you again. Sometimes I look at Allie and Benjamin and find myself so thrilled and happy to own them. They are such a BIG part of our lives and bring so much happiness and joy.


We get so many compliments about them and I am so proud to talk about them. I can't imagine my life without them. These two pictures are them on a camping trip with us.


Again, you do such a good job with the breed and I'm glad I found you
to purchase a breed I absolutely love.


Forever thankful,
