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.
