Rescue Copper Wins CGN Certificate!


Rescueboy Copper, an Airedale who spent much of his early life outdoors by himself, passed the CKC Canine Good Neighbour test recently. His current owner is very happy with his results.

In the test, he had to accept a friendly stranger, politely accept petting, walk politely, walking through a crowd, sit/down on command and stay in place, come when called (long line), accept a strange dog, accept a strange object (trolly) being pushed around and passed him, supervised isolation for 3 min., and politely walk through a door. Copper had to pass all these activities to earn the CGN certificate

AirCanada would like to congratulate both Copper and his owner, Teri, for a terrific achievement. This shows what good care and excellent training can accomplish. Our thanks to Copper’s present owner not only for rescuing and choosing to provide a home for Copper but also  for her ability to see the intelligence and potential in this Airedale. We salute you both!

Teddy Receives His Canine Good Neighbour Award!

 Puppy Teddy was surrendered to AireCanada Rescue last January. He was a silly youngster who enjoyed watching TV each evening with Treasurer Jim and who loved attending Doggy Daycare while staying with Webmaster Scott and his wife, Karen.

Teddy was a very lucky boy. The day he was advertised as being available for adoption, Jen and Ian, already owners of young Airedale Molly, happened to inquire about adopting an Airedale from rescue. We offered Teddy and the rest, as they say, is history.

Teddy fell in love with his new Airedale sister, learned to respect the family Border Collie and came quickly to adore all the family members. He was affectionate and minded his manners. Taken for training, he did very well. In fact, Teddy who is barely a year old, has earned his Canine Good Neighbour Badge from the Canadian Kennel Club!

AireCanada would like to congratulate Teddy and his owners for this achievement!
