Airedale Terrier Puppy

by Drew Sire

The Airedale Terrier IS the King of the Terriers. The Airedale holds this title for several reasons?the first being its size. The Airedale can grow as large as 70 pounds, larger than any other terrier breed. Another reason is the country it originates from?England. The most well known monarchy in the world should have a dog all its own ? and the Airedale is proud to hold that title.


From the time the Airedale is a puppy, its intelligence is very apparent. Its ability to learn and the speed at which it takes to obedience training is almost unequaled. This king of the breed takes to being a guard dog, a watchdog and a playmate with equal abandon. Herding is also a favorite pastime for this odd-looking creature.

Appearance of the Airedale

Like most terriers, the Airedale has a coarse coat on top of a softer undercoat. Shedding is not an issue with this breed though some skin conditions can arise in some lines. Even though shedding is not a major issue, regular clipping is required as the Airedale's wiry coat can get easily tangled.

If you are considering an Airedale Terrier

If you have decided that an Airedale Terrier is on your short list of possible breeds to buy, you should consider a few things first:

If you are an active person and don't mind taking your new buddy out on the road with you for a daily jog, then an Airedale may be a good choice. This majestic breed was not meant to lie around the house.

Are you a fan of Tigger (you know, Winnie's buddy)? You need to be if you are considering an Airedale. They can be rather bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, fun, fun, fun, fun until they are about two years old. As a result, things can go flying around your house like your lamp, your car keys, your glasses, your kid?get the picture?

If you do not want to deal with an independent streak, the Airedale may not be for you. They are a proud breed and will make you prove repeatedly that you are the boss. Even when you show them who the Alpha dog is, they can still be aggressive toward other dogs. Proper socialization will help alleviate this tendency, but you should never be in public with your Airedale without a leash. He is very protective of you and has no problem letting the world know that you are his human.

So beware?when you take your Airedale puppy home on that first day, if you are not careful, he will quickly take over the household. The Airedale is a proud breed and any training should be centered on that notion. They respond better to positive feedback than negative training techniques. They tend to take the word "no" as a challenge instead of an instruction. But when he does realize who is boss, you could not have a more loyal friend.
