Known as “the King of all Terriers”, the Airedale Terrier was originally bred to be used as an “all purpose dog” that could not only hunt water vermin, but upland game, and also be a fearless guard dog, loyal family companion and trusted friend.
Airedale Terrier Breed Characteristics:
The largest of the terrier breeds, the Airedale Terrier stands 23″ tall at the shoulder and weighs from 55 to 68 pounds. The Airedale Terrier is the dog of all dogs; whatever you are able to teach them, they will do for you. Loving, clownish, happy and gregarious with a true zest for life, these dogs make extraordinary companions, and are particularly fond of children.
These wonderful dogs excel in obedience training and are relatively easy to house-break. They require plenty of daily exercise and liberal amounts of love, care and attention in order to thrive. A fenced yard is a must.
