Overview
A very pleasant breed, the Airedale Terrier is protective, brave, and affectionate. Demands love and attention. A rowdy breed, the Airedale Terrier should start obedience training at a young age to avoid dominance issues and to ensure the dog will be well mannered.
Character
Spunky, protective, yet sweet, this breed is not recommended for the average family. Dominance issues can arise if proper training is not started at and early age. The Airedale Terrier can be somewhat stubborn so firm handling is best.
Temperament
The Airedale Terrier is very loyal, and can be a joy to own, but can be difficult at times. Proper training is a must. An intelligent breed, the Airedale Terrier should have an experienced owner. This dog loves to chase small animals, but can do exceptionally well with cats and other dogs, given the dog has had proper socialization.
Care
The hair of this breed is hard and crisp making it rather hard to groom. Dead hair should be plucked at least twice a year. The Airedale Terrier can shed heavily or not at all depending on the cut of the coat. Washing the beard regularly is a must to keep it free from caking.
Coat
The coat of the Airedale Terrier should be wiry, crisp, hard and straight lying close to the body of the dog. Slightly wavy hair is acceptable with a distinctive beard around muzzle.
Training
This breed can be very willful and stubborn at times, but with variety can do very well in sporting events. This dog is very lively and requires an experienced handler. Firm but gentle training is required.
Activity
The Airedale Terrier should have at least an average sized yard available. A very active breed, this dog loves to swim, jog, run, and play so this breed does require extensive exercise. Not recommended for apartment life as they are very active indoors and can become a tyrant if not sufficiently exercised.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Airedale Terrier puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

No. That is not an Airedale Terrier at all. That is the magnificent Irish Wolfhound. A very different breed of dog. Finding a qualified and reputable breeder is key to having one of these dogs live a long, healthy and happy life. They are an amazing breed of dog, I can't imagine living without one in my life.

Would an airedale and a weimaraner be a good mix?

The problem with mixing breed's of dogs is that you can get the best of both breeds, the worst of both breeds or a mixture in-between. The best thing to do is to find several breeds of dogs that meet your expectations and lifestyle and contact local rescues. No matter the mix, always read up on both breeds to find out how the dog will be with your lifestyle.

Age At what age should a Airedale Terrier puppy be before leaving the litter?

1 Comment

All puppies should never leave their mother's until they are at LEAST 8 weeks old. But getting your puppy anytime between 8 weeks - 14 weeks is good. Having the puppy stay with it's litter mates and mother longer gives the puppy time to learn all the things that puppies learn from their siblings and mother such as bite inhibition, how to play nicely, how to greet nicely, when barking/growling is acceptable, ect.

As with any larger breed dog, you should wait to breed the female until she is about two years old (this may be the 3rd heat cycle). Then you should only breed one heat cycle per year. If the female is bred too early and too often, she can end up with health esp. hip problems, potentially not be a good mother, or have a much shortened life span. Please breed responsibly.....

Does the Airedale Terrier breed do well when obtained from a dog pound and into a home with teenage children who have never had a dog? And, does the age of Airdale Terrier become a concern for this situation

When getting a dog from a shelter or rescue situation, you must understand that the dog can be confused, scared, upset when he/she first comes into your home. Allow the dog to adjust to the home for at least 1 - 2 weeks before allowing non-family member's to come and meet the dog. Taking the dog to an obedience class with your teenage children is the best thing to do to solidify a great relationship between your family and your new dog. Make sure that your Airedale Terrier gets the exercise he/she needs on a daily basis. A tired dog is a good dog. The Airedale Terrier needs an average of 1 - 2 hours of hard exercise a day.

SO EASY TO BLAME THE DOG, WHAT WAS YOUR GRAND DAUGHTER DOING TO THE DOG. CHILDREN TEASE AND THINK ITS FUN, BUT A DOG CAN NOT SAY STOP THAT "I DON'T LIKE THAT" A CHILD THAT IS NOT WATCHED IS MORE LIKELY TO ATTEMPT TO GET AWAY WITH DOING SOMETHING IT HAS BEEN TOLD TO STOP AT OTHER TIMES BY ITS PARENTS OR YOU. CHILDREN OF TEN ARE STILL CHILDREN

thx, I think you are right. I am sure something caused the unusual reaction. I am watching him closely and don't see any changes in behavior.

Airdales and all canines are social animals and should be a part of the human family. If you cannot offer this get a bowl and buy some fish.

Both of our female Airedales were close to 2 years before the first cycle then about every 9 months until the next.
