What a good weekend of Obedience!
A Pedigree indicates what a dog should be.
Conformation indicates what a dog appears to be.
But PERFORMANCE indicates what a dog actually is.

Happy 9th Birthday to Cait!
On her birthday, August 9th 2015, we enjoyed a few runs at a local agility trial. Cait placed first in Preferred 20 inch class! She earned 25 PACH points that day. Exactly 7 years prior, on her second birthday, Cait and I earned her first MACH points! It was fun to think back over our wonderful journey together. As you can see from the video, the fun and the journey continue!
I love you Cait!

Our thoughts on Working Airedales...
"Working ability" in Airedales is a complex trait that can be enhanced in a breeding program, if given priority.
To demonstrate that high standards are maintained, working ability of individual dogs must be rigorously proven generation after generation.
We believe that a lineage with consistent Masters-level achievement in competitive dog sports will produce dogs that can excel in any task from a young age.
Our goal at Eclipse Airedales is to continue this tradition.
Eclipse Airedales are from imported German bloodlines bred for over 20 generations to enhance working ability. The photos at the left show our dogs competing in Agility, Obedience, Rally, Hunt Tests and Barn Hunt. You can see their happy attitudes. Playing training games are what our dogs live for!
