We are expecting Airedale Terrier puppies in week 13!

Wayosi Isidore Isolde ~ Nani is confirmed pregnant with the German male Yoda von der Laubenhaid ~ Yoda. We are very much looking forward to seeing what this combination will give us. The puppies are expected during week 13 and will be ready to leave for their new homes during week 21. We hope that this combination will give us some loyal and friendly family dogs with strong nerves, who are playful and active, and who, in addition, would make a great all-around working dog.

Please note that we breed working-line Airedale Terriers, and thus, we are looking for active owners who preferably want to do dog sports with their dogs. Active and loving family homes that are looking for a puppy with a healthy mentality and a sound exterior are also very welcome. In every litter, we will find puppies with different kinds of temperament and mentality, and by getting to know our pups and by doing puppy tests on them we will match the puppies with the right owners.

It is very important to us that we know that our puppies will have a good, active, and permanent home in their new families. We believe that an active dog is a happy dog, so we expect that our puppy buyers understand that the dog will need mental and physical stimulation throughout its life. We expect you to understand that you have to put time and work into your puppy and young dog to get a well-behaved and balanced adult dog and understand that the dog needs rules as well as positive learning. Our puppies could by many be perceived as very active in the first years, but with the right training, the puppies will be easy dogs with humor and great attitude even in adulthood. 

We want to ensure that our puppies come to a caring and loving home and who will keep in touch with us on a regular basis throughout the dog’s life. We expect our puppy buyers to use time and energy to follow up on their dog’s versatility and strength, take care of them, and give them everything they need such as time and love, veterinary care, quality food, physical and mental training, attend puppy courses and further training. It is very important that our buyers have thought long and well about the responsibility it is to own and care for a dog. We expect that you set aside time for your puppy in the beginning. Before being left home alone for long periods, the puppy should become known in its new home, be houseclean, and feel safe. You must have the opportunity to take a holiday or to have the opportunity to have your puppy with you at work (in the office, in the car, etc) in the beginning. For the next few months, the puppy should not be alone for a long time and you need to find solutions for this if you can’t stay home or bring the puppy to work.

The puppy must be socialized and trained so that it will learn to work as a family dog, and the owners must learn to handle the working capacity and self-assuredness in the dog. We demand that the new owners attend puppy classes and preferably advanced courses with the dog. This is the most important investment one can do when having a puppy and young dog and it will give socialization with other dogs and people. It gives an excellent and important starting point for a good working relationship and happy everyday life.

You must be able to give your dog quality food, veterinary care when needed, vaccination, and insurance. We require that you give your dog a good and loving home, where it becomes a part of the family. We do not sell puppies to homes where they need to stay outside or in kennels. We also require your dog to bee HD and ED x-rayed between 12 and 20 months. We also require that you attend a dog mentality assessment when the dog is 16-24 months old.


  • Who are you? Where do you live, what is your life situation, what do you do for a living, etc?
  • What is your experience with dogs in the past? Have you had a dog before, do you have a dog now, have you practiced any kind of dog sports before, etc?
  • What is the reason you want an Airedale Terrier/Rhodesian Ridgeback and what ambitions do you have with the dog? Do you want to train and compete in some dog sports? Going to confirmation shows? Or do you mainly want a companion dog?
  • How do you solve the puppy period in regard to the puppy should not be left home alone for longer periods the first half year or more? Do you have the opportunity to take the dog to work or in a car, family or friends who look after it, etc.?
  • Do you have any experience with trimming coats from the past (Airedale Terrier), and how do you plan to solve this? Do you want to trim the dog yourself, or do you have a plan for sending it to trim with others?


Our breeding plans are planned based on long-term goals and thoughts, and we only breed combinations and individuals we believe would give the types of dog we will own ourselves.  Mentality and health is our main concern, and we would never compromise. We believe that a dog with good nerves who could handle every situation being presented to it during working, hunting, or everyday life, also would be the perfect companion and family dog. They should be their family’s pride and joy, the protector of the house, and the best friend of their owners and family.

Different quality assessments are used as a base for our breeding program: mentality assessments, working trials, exterior judgments (shows), and health controls recommended within the breeds. We want to preserve and strengthen the good qualities and improve what could be better. We don’t strive after breeding show champions, but our main focus is on mentality and health. We put the bar high concerning what qualities we feel fit for breeding. We want to see “Wayosies” happy and with loads of self-esteem, dignity, and attitude, unafraid and playful, moderate guarding instincts, and with a willingness to cooperate and please their leader. 

Our puppies are raised in the family. The puppies are raised inside our house and are disposed of all the sounds, smells, and impressions from a normal home. We also take our puppies in the car daily when they turn 6 weeks old, visit other places, and let them get to know other environments than our home. We have many visitors as the puppies grow up so that the puppies are social and comfortable around people. They are handled a lot by us and learn that it’s OK to be turned on their back, picked up, have their claws cut, etc. They will also meet children and other dogs. We play a lot with the puppies, giving them an interest in playing, grabbing, and fetching. This would give the new owners a good start regarding obedience training, and also in a hunting situation where the dog has learned at an early stage that it is fun to retrieve. So many important lessons are learned at this age, and we do our utmost to give the puppy the best start in life before going to their new homes. The work the breeder does in this period is extremely important for your puppy and its further life. We do our best to give your puppy the very best start in life before it arrives at its new home.

We do our utmost to make sure the combination of parent dogs is a good one, and that the parent dogs are found to be as healthy as can be at the time of mating. We have searched the pedigrees and found the combination to be a good choice and we are doing the combination because we have high hopes it would give us healthy dogs, wrapped in a healthy body structure and with a healthy mentality on top. However, as we, unfortunately, have no control over the many genes that are involved in the process of building every single individual, we can not make guarantees that the dog will live a long and healthy life. Off course it is our goal, but everyone with knowledge of how nature works knows that making a new life always will have some risks, whether it is with animals or humans. As with humans, dogs can be affected by several health issues such as different types of cancer, allergies, locomotive disorders, immune disorders, disorders in the heart, different kinds of eye disorders, etc. Some issues are genetic, some are environmental, and some are a combination of both. Before planning a litter we make sure the parents are tested for whatever is possible to test for within the breed, and our puppy buyers could trust us when we say we are doing the mating with a clear conscience and a belief it will be a success. Still, in the end, only nature can tell what the result will be. We are glad to say that we have been quite lucky with our offspring, and even though some individuals have encountered health issues, the vast majority are living long and healthy lives. 

We breed carefully and always follow the Norwegian Kennel Club’s ethical ground rules for breeding.

When you buy a puppy from us you always get:

  • Pedigree and registration papers from the Norwegian Kennel Club (FCI member club)
  • Purchase contract
  • Wayosi puppy pamphlet (in Norwegian) with information and valuable tips for caring for your puppy and grown-up dog.
  • The puppy has been dewormed and vaccinated according to the recommendations, has gotten an identification mark with a chip, and has a valid health certificate.
  • Food for the first few days at home and a blanket with the smell of the mother and litter siblings
  • Life-long support from us with access to our closed kennel group on Facebook.

We write in our purchase contract that we require the dog to have HD and ED-x-rays when it is between 12-24 months, and that you set aside time when the dog is 16-24 months old to attend dog mentality assessment (MH) or behavior and personality test (BPH). It is important for us as breeders that you follow the requirements, as this is a measure of how the combination has turned out and it gives us a view to further breeding plans. In addition, you as an owner will have great value to see how your dog handles different situations presented to it and learn more about the mentality that your dog possesses.
