Rangeaire Airedale Terriers (Vic 1960 - 2000)
Rangeaire 4 GenerationsOwned by myself (Jane Harvey) in partnership with my husband Bob, Rangeaire Airedales was a part of my life for nearly 50 years. During this time they have had had a major influence on Airedales both in Australia and overseas. Rangeaire produced 72 champion Airedales bred in a 10-generation direct line that earned 82 Championship titles, as well as owning another 5 which were shown through to title. 13 Airedale breeders bought their foundation Airedale from us and another 5 kennels bred their first litter using one of our stud dogs.
Always hobby operated in a modest family home with a small backyard and no formal kennel block, the Airedales at Rangeaire were also our family's pets as the thumbnail depicts. This account of our practical breeding record could also provide an inspiration to Airedale enthusiasts as well as those in other breeds as the reasons behind the various matings unfold.
