About Airedale Terrier
Country of Origin, History of the breed
The Airedale Terrier was developed for use in the Valley of the Aire in England where much small game flourished. He was originally used as a vermin hunter. Later he was crossed with the Otterhound to make him a better swimmer. Not only has he been a small game hunter, he has been used to hunt bug game in Africa, India, and Canada. He also was used as an army sentry dog in World War II and later as a police dog.
Most of today’s Airedales
are companion dogs, but there are still working
dogs. They are excellent at competitive obedience

parallel to the floor. The Airedale has v-shaped

The head and muzzle are wide and flat like a three-dimensional
The Airedale nose is black and
the eyes are dark. The docked tail of the Airedale

the dog carries it gaily but not curled over the
back. Males have a mustache.
The Airedale Terrier is a very
sturdy-looking dog, strong and muscular with a very
The Airedale Terrier coat is tan

some red or a small white star or patch which is
on the chest. Legs, chest, underside, head and ears
are tan. The back (basically a saddle), brows, and
beard are black or mottled black and tan.
The Airedale Terrier has a harsh
wiry coat all over his body. Its hair is bristly

Temperament of the Dog
Bred for a variety of uses, Airedale
Terrier can hunt, swim and serve as an excellent
watchdog. Although the Airedale is courageous and
protective, he can be friendly with strangers he
meets on the street. He is intelligent and loyal.
Its mind is ever active and needs
stimulation early as a puppy to keep it constructively
directed. They are fun-loving and very playful.
The Airedale Terrier is a lively and loving companion
and can be a “puppy” for at least the
first two years if not longer.
They can show dominance with other
pets so should be introduced early but are seldom
This breed is good with older
children and makes a great companion especially
if obedience or agility is introduced. They often
are too rambunctious for small children or older
Their owner should be one that
enjoys the training process and the rewards it brings
to them both. It is important for the owner(s) to
establish the Alpha dog relationship and keep it
established with the Airedale as he will challenge
that role every chance he gets.
Airedale Terriers need to feel loved and respected.
Chipmunks and rabbits are more
important to an Airedale Terrier than obedience
commands, playing, or even a steak. This attitude
not only leads to disobedience but to stubbornness.
Airedales can be trained to a
very high level, but they get bored easily in the
process. The training must be mixed with fun and
games so that the handler does not get refusals.
Better suited to an indoor
or outdoor lifestyle?
The Airedale Terrier can live
indoors as long as he gets plenty of outdoor play
and work time. He could also live outdoors as long
as the weather is not too hot or too cold and he
gets plenty of time with his family.
Airedale Terriers are not recommended
for apartment living as they are very active indoors
and do not settle down as they age.
At least an average-sized, securely
fenced yard is necessary for the Airedale.
Are they suited to homes
Airedales are not recommended
for homes with small children or older adults; however,
they do fine with older children or with singles
or married-without-children couples.
How Active is the Breed?
This breed was developed to be
active. The Airedale Terrier is a lively and loving
companion and can be a “puppy” for at
least the first two years if not longer. Its mind
is ever active and needs stimulation early as a
puppy to keep it constructively directed.
Swimming, jogging and possibly
biking will make your Airedale happy and healthy.
This is one of the highest energy dogs.
How Much Exercise Does
the Dog Need at every stage of its Life?
Puppies, up to two years old or
a bit older, often are too rambunctious for small
children or older adults. After two years, he settles
down a bit but is still very active even in the
house. He needs both mental and physical stimulation.
Do not take your Airedale running
or jogging until he is at least one year old so
that his bones and muscles are fully developed.
They love competition such as
obedience or agility – and training for it.
A variety of eye problems plague
the Airedale. Because of their size, hip and elbow
dysplasia are always concerns.
A very breed-specific issue is
dry skin and many skin allergies. If this affects
your Airedale, try an adjusted omega-6/omega-3 fatty
acid ratio in the diet.
