The links below are provided to help you understand why we have chosen to
naturally rear our terriers free of chemicals, hormones and byproducts using a
natural meaty bone diet along with minimal vaccinations, conventional and holistic
vet care.  

Airedale Terriers should easily live into their mid teens, but many families lose
these wonderful dogs before their tenth birthday.  Many Airedales are plagued
with cancers, auto-immune disorders, thyroid problems, kidney disease, joint
pain, chronic skin problems, dental disease and allergies.  Why? We feel it is
due to the overuse of vaccinations, chemicals, steroids, antibiotics, year round
poisons being applied or given orally to prevent parasites.  Many owners feed a  
poor protein grain based diet...never adding fresh meat, eggs, vegetables or
fruit.  Would you feed your child the same cereal food everyday and expect
proper growth and health? Children are not vaccinated yearly...yet we are told
to vaccinate our pets yearly. Why?  It is time for pet owners to realize there
are alternatives to keeping dogs healthy, happy and living well into their teens.  

As breeders  we take great pride in producing healthy, sound terriers who
excel in temperment, type and function.  Our wish for each puppy we bring into
this world is a long happy healthy life with a loving family.  Please review the
links below and keep an open mind.

OLEX: our 4 month old German Shepherd "grand-puppy" enjoys fresh
venison meat! Olex was purchased as an 8 week old kibble fed puppy and
went directly on to a raw meaty bone diet.  We do not feed our dogs on
the floor, they normally eat smaller portions (22 oz daily) in a crate.
They eat on a large towel and we simply wipe the crate with diluted
white vinegar daily.
