Hunting Working Airedales (HWA; huntingworkingairedales.com) is proudly showing off the June/July issue of GUN DOG magazine with its cover photo and feature article on Airedale terriers in the field.
This is a big deal. GUN DOG magazine is a well-respected and widely-read publication for all sporting dog enthusiasts. Though the magazine has run articles on hunting Airedales in the past, this is the first time an Airedale has been on the cover.
We'd like to think the good exposure will help move our breed from the "non-traditional" category to a choice more often considered by those who favor strong and versatile hunting companions. Our thanks to editor Rick Van Etten for featuring Airedales and to writer M.J. Nelson for putting together the informative article.

Thanks, Chris. We'll admit we were a little nervous about putting a "non-traditional" Airedale on the cover, but the response has been positive and we're happy to help showcase the abilities of those big rascals.--The Editors
