Our families have always been dog fanciers and always owned dogs. Shirley's father had Dalmatians running with the horses in his Ontario, Canada livery business. Susan's grandfather began three generations of Airedales in New England, bring a pregnant bitch with him to Boston 100 years ago.
We are now in our 30th year of showing and breeding our Airedales under the Stirling prefix, which is Susan's family name of Scottish descent. Ten years ago, we acquired two special Airedales,
In these past 30 years, we have owned and bred 30 Champions, many are American, Canadian, and 2 International Champions, often owner handled. All have been specialty winners. Airedales from our breeding program have also been successful in Obedience and Agility often earning top awards.
