John Rickard Breeder of Top Quality Airedale Terriers in Northern Virginia

JOVAL Airedales is VERY proud of the Quality of our dogs. That quality is well demonstrated by our success in the show (conformation) ring. Joval Dogs are consistent winners at All Major Airedale Terrier Specialty shows and our dogs have been placed in the Top 10 in the USA for the past 10 years. Over the years we have bred more than 50 Champions in the U.S. as well as numerous other countries. At the same time, we have enriched the lives of many families through placement of our Healthy, Happy and Fun-loving companion puppies as demonstrated by the many emails, letters and pictures we receive featured in our Testimonials and Gallery pages.

Mission: The goal of the JOVAL Airedales breeding program is to develop and continually improve a line of Airedales that will enhance the overall health of the breed while conforming to the AKC breed standard in both temperament and physical characteristics (conformation).

North Oatlands Animal Hospital & Reproduction Center

Dr. Rickard and the NOAH Team welcomed a beautiful litter of 9 Bernese Mountain Dogs into the world via C-section yesterday. The entire breeding and delivery went seamlessly and as “stress free” as possible due to the partnership with her breeder who availed herself of the “full-suite” of available services that NOAH offers throughout the process. We always encourage our clients to help us help them maximize their successes so they can enjoy similar results to those shown in these pictures. Mom, Babies (and breeder) are happy, healthy and doing just fine.

Dominion Valley Animal Hospital

Dominion Valley and North Oatlands Animal hospitals are proud to announce that we added a new type of service to our existing line of minimally invasive and painless surgical procedures. We now offer laser surgery, which allows us to do bloodless procedures, resulting in minimal post-op swelling and significantly less pain due to sealing of the nerve endings in the incision.
Today North Oatlands performed a soft palate resection and nares opening surgery. Immediately upon recovery the dog was able to breathe better, and went home by the end of the day as if he did not have any surgery done at all. It was amazing!
We are so much looking forward to being able to utilize this tool with all of our surgeries and keep all of our patients as comfortable and pain free as we can.

A laser ear crop pup was so much more comfortable after the surgery with minimal bleeding, swelling or head shaking. His ears were standing up immediately post procedure. It was another amazing outcome.
I am so much looking forward to being able to utilize this tool with all of our surgeries and keep all of our patients as comfortable and pain free as we can.

Joval's own Dr. Valeria Rickard wins BEST IN SPECIALTY SHOW at the Garden State All Terrier Club Show. What makes this EXTRA special is that she did it as a Breeder-Owner-Handler and defeated some of the top handlers and names in Terriers! We are VERY proud of our boy BISS GCH JOVAL It's My Time for this AMAZING win, and we are also VERY proud of Drew's sister GCH JOVAL Sweet Time, who earned GCH Select at the same prestigious specialty!
