The ATCA’s constitutional objectives are:

  • To encourage and promote quality in the breeding of pure-bred Airedale Terriers and to do all possible to bring their natural qualities to perfection.
  • To urge members and breeders to accept the standard of the breed as approved by the American Kennel Club as the only standard of excellence by which the breed shall be judged.
  • To educate judges about the standard of the breed as approved by the American Kennel Club.
  • To do all in its power to protect and advance the interests of the breed and to encourage sportsmanlike competition at dog shows, obedience and agility trials, field and hunting events, and other types of performance competitions; and to support rescue/adoption activities.
