Airedale Terrier Information
Airedales are the largest of all terriers with males standing at about 23 inches in the shoulder and females only a bit smaller. Clever, confident and alert, the Airedale has a sweet disposition but isn’t afraid to stick up for himself. The breed is thought to have originated in the Aire River valley in England in the mid 1800s and was used to hunt large rats found in the area.
Airedales’ wiry, tan coat does require regular brushing and stripping. The breed also needs regular exercise and stimulation, as it can get bored easily. You can count on Airedales to be great with children and other pets and very easy to train.
