Airedale Terrier - Care and Grooming

The Airedale is the king of the Terriers, being the greatest member of the group. Originally it cases out well-known Like Waterside Terrier and some times also like Bingley Terrier, took the name from the Air valley in Yorkshire, England. Probably cruzado with a Otterhound was the lineage of a working Terrier. It was classified separately for the first time for the exhibitions, in 1879, but one did not settle down definitively for the exhibitions until years 30, the Airedales were introduced in the volume USA to 1910. “Expert and hunting Shoplifter” of ducks, also can be trained to hunt it with gun and is a splendid guardian. From his beginnings it has realised multitude of tasks that go from working as much in the British army as in the Russian, to act like messenger and collector of money for the Red Cross and like dog patrols for the railway police. It seems that there is lost his niche like guardian from the emergencia of the German Shepherd.

The Airedale multitasks are a good election for the great fans to the Terriers who love a greater dog. Like company animal, it is good with the children, extremely loyal and, in spite of his size, it seems to adapt well to the space reduced enough (whenever it realises much exercise). It will need, nevertheless, that fixes the hair by hand to him twice to the year, if the intention is had to exhibit it.

Airedale Terrier Temperament

The Airedale Terrier is a dog that has plenty of courage and confidence, and is a protective and loyal pet as well as an intelligent and fun loving entertainer. This breed is fine for families with children, but can be a little rough in terms of play and therefore may not be the best choice for families with smaller children. He has a high prey drive and this means that socialization with other household pets must be done early on - this is not the best choice of dog for those with smaller pets such as rabbits and guinea pigs.

This breed can be aggressive with other dogs, but will usually be either friendly or simply polite with strangers. His protective instincts makes him a good watchdog, bit he can also be stubborn, headstrong, and very independent. The Airedale Terrier is very agile and energetic, and it is important to keep him occupied and dedicate plenty of time to play and exercise - a bored Airedale Terrier can become very destructive in finding ways to burn off his energy. This is a dog that may me best for those with experience in obedience training as failure to be assertive, firm, yet positive with this breed can result in the owner becoming the owned!

Airedale Terrier Grooming

The good news is that this is a breed that is a very light shedder providing that he is properly groomed on a regular basis. Of course, this means that you will need to dedicate some time to grooming your Airedale Terrier. You should make sure that his beard is combed on a daily basis to keep it clean and hygienic, and his bottom will need to be kept trimmed. For show dogs, stripping of the dead coat may be required every few months. For pet Airedales owners can opt for clipping. A stiff bristle brush should be used a few times a week in order to keep the dog's coat in good condition, and bathing is only required when necessary.
