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.

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

Anonymous

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?

1 Comment

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.

they would be if the airedale were raised with these animals as a puppy so that it learns not to harm them. otherwise, yes, they do make fine guard dogs.

Airedale's are an awesome family pet that requires a disciplined owner. Once the ground rules are established, well, it's almost like having another child! My Airedale got along with anyone but if he sensed ill will at the door that person was not getting any where near my family. I have a Wheaton terrier now but would get another Airedale again and a Wheaton. A little more guard dog in the Airedale.

If you get the airedale terrior as a very young pup you will not have any problems. It will require exercise and firm training. In the beginning you need to let it know that you and your child are the boss. After firm training they are fantastic. They play hard, so you need to watch, but they are great at agility, and are loyal. Airedale terrior's love kids, and love to be part of the family. Funny dogs just remember to train firmly, but they respond best with positive reinforcement.

Can't comment about the kitten, but our Airedale was outstanding with our grandchildren, starting from infancy. They crawled over her, poked her in the fact and pulled her tail without once provoking her. She was very protective of them all and even paced in front of the stairs, thereby preventing one of them (still just crawling) from starting up the stairs. I doubt there's a better dog for children.

Airedales usually lose the black mask early in puppyhood. Mine lost his around 4 months. The breed standard is to have no black on the face. However, my parents' dog is older and has never lost the black along the top of his nose.

Grooming: It depends if you decide to get her clipped or hand stripped. Clipping is much quicker and cheaper but the finish isn't as nice. Hand stripping can take hours but i think it looks much better. It also depends on your local groomers available, you can do it your self but the result can look untidy (and it takes hours and hours!!). As for being good with other dogs ours gets on with many different dogs. She is very friendly (bouncy and very playful!) so this can put some dogs off but they always get on in the end.

What we do is take ours to the groomer to get groomed because it can be very difficult. Or you can just leave their fluffy hair long and keep it brused and cleaned, thats cute too. As far as good with other dogs, ours is very well behaved with ours but we have raised them together since birth.
