Allergies – Maybe an Airdale Terrier is for You

Sunday, May 19, 2019
posted by Jim Murphy

This dog is the largest of the terriers and is square in appearance. Their heads are long and flat. It’s eyes are small and dark in color. They have a dense, hard wiry outercoat and a soft undercoat. Their front legs are perfectly straight.

The Airedale Terrier is usually OK with children as long as they are socialized early on.  They may be a little too rough for very small children. They are a courageous and protective dog. They are fairly friendly with strangers as well as intelligent and loyal. They are always happy to please you.  They are avid hunters and it would be very difficult for you to train him to stay away from a squirrel or chipmunk. Watch out if you’re grilling a steak. If you turn your head, it may be gone!

They need lots of physical and mental exercise or they may have a tendency to become rowdy. So buy lots of fetch dog toys to keep him occupied.

The Airedale Terrier may have dominance challenges toward family members he sees as submissive. This can lead to disobedience.  The need a calm but firm and consistent handler.

They are not recommended for apartment life as they are very active indoors are really need and average size yard to run around in.

This is a very hardy breed but can suffer from eye problems. Their life expectancy is 10 to 12 years.

Their face should be washed daily especially to remove food, spurs etc from their beard. If you keep their coat stripped, they won’t shed too much and may be very good for allergy sufferers.

Remember, your pets count!
