About us

Our Club is committed to promoting the purebred Airedale Terrier and responsible dog ownership.

RipleyThe ATA of NSW has been functioning since 1967 and is affiliated with DOGS NSW.

The current Committee comprises members who have proudly owned, shown and trialed Airedales for many years. 

The Club also has a number of members who have been associated with Airedales for many years and are lifetime members:

  • Mr. and Mrs. R Lowe
  • Mrs. G. Lesh (Strongfort Kennels)

The Club provides a number of services and organises events throughout the year suitable for the cross section of our members, whether their interest lies in conformation showing, obedience or purely the joy of having an Airedale as a family member.

We welcome all Airedale owners and friends to join the ATA and hope your involvement with our Club is a positive and satisfying one.
