Amber-Aire FAQs

1) Breeder Biography

Hello! My name is Carol Stull. I grew up in a small town in N.E. Pennsylvania. I had Beagles until my early 20's; my Dad and I trained and bred  them for hunting and Field Trials. In 1973  I was given a  Miniature Poodle,  'Bijou', that launched my grooming career. I then  adopted a three-year-old Doberman 'Bruja' when I lived in New Mexico and had eight wonderful years with her. It is still a breed that is close to my heart. When Bruja passed away  in 1987, I was without a dog for the first time in my life. But that only lasted two weeks. Then I bought my first Airedale from White House Kennel;  Amber-Lace of White House.

'Lacey' was a wonderful dog and hooked me on the breed. I competed in obedience with her and got my first AKC title, a CD (companion dog). I bred Lacey and produced my first champion,  Ch.Amber-Aire's Leading Man, 'Beaker'.  I used a professional handler to show my dogs for a few years , then decided to show my own dogs. I finished Ch. Amber-Aire's Rasinette, 'Raisin'; Ch. Stone Ridge Amber-Aire's Ember, 'Emmie';  Ch. Amber-Aire's Leap of Faith, 'Lola' and pointed Amber-Aire's Unforgettable 'Bindi' and Ch. Amber-Aire's Cover Girl, 'Nina'.

I also showed and finished several Smooth Fox Terriers and  now own Briar, 'Sweetmont's Briar Rose of Amber -Aire', she is a wonderful companion.

The Smooths are a breeze  to groom compared to the hand stripping involved with an Airedales.  Grooming an Airedale for show is time consuming; from start to finish, it takes approximately 12 weeks, then a few hours a week to keep  them in show condition.  It is truly an artistic endeavor and a huge commitment; but a labor of love.

I cannot imagine my life without an Airedale, they are truly the 'King' of the terriers. Producing puppies that are not only bred to the 'AKC' standard but have supurb temperments has always been my goal.
