All about the Airedale Terrier

The Airedale Terrier is a lively and very energetic breed. It is great with kids; as well as small pets, but can sometimes display a dominant tendency towards other dogs.

Socializing at an early age is important for this dog in order to bring out its best behaviour. It is a protective and a loyal breed towards its owners; which makes for a good guard dog, but it can be friendly with strangers.

Grooming an Airedale Terrier

Hair type: The double coat of an Airedale Terrier has a hard, dense and wiry outer coat with a soft undercoat. Coat colours include: tan with black, and tan with grizzle. The hardest coats are crinkling or just slightly waved.

Daily coat care: Airedales have a hard, short-haired, double coat. The hair should be plucked about twice a year. If you keep the coat stripped it will shed very little or even no hair. However, if you do not strip the coat you will most likely find fur piles lying around; even with trimming and brushing every day. A slicker crush and a fine toothed comb should be used to groom this breed. Burrs stick in the coat and beard; and in addition, the beard should be washed daily because of food residue.

Recommended groom frequency: This breed should receive a professional groom every 6-8 weeks.

At Petmania Grooming Studios we have a full range of treatments available for your Airedale Terrier. If you get puppy, we recommend our Puppy’s First Visit at around four months; once your puppy has received all his vaccinations.

Diet

Depending on the size and age of your Airedale Terrier; you will need to feed between 274g and 361g of high-quality dry food a day, divided into two meals. Keep your Airedale Terrier trim by measuring their food and feeding them twice a day rather than leaving food out all the time.

Our pet advisors in-store can help you find the most appropriate food for your dog; while you can find out more about the different dog food brands we stock here.

Activity Level

Airedales were bred for active work; and so need lots of exercise so they need to be taken for long and exercising daily walks. Most of them love to play with a ball, swim or run after and retrieve objects; and once fully grown will happily run alongside a bicycle. Without enough attention and exercise; the Airedale Terrier will become agitated, bored and will usually get itself into trouble.

Their exercise requirements can go down somewhat after the first two years; but until then, the first two years with an Airedale are very tiring on the human; but after this initial period they begin to mellow.

Where to get an Airedale Terrier

There are lots of places offering dogs or puppies for sale in Ireland, but we would always ask that you consider adopting a dog first. Our animal rescue partners have 100’s of rescue dogs and puppies seeking a forever home; and would be delighted to introduce you to them.

However, if a rescue dog is not for you, we do recommend that you choose a registered breeder; and seek Irish Kennel Club registration papers which will confirm that the dog has been bred to their strict code of ethics.
