In general, Airedale Terriers get on well with cats and other household animals, and they are very patient with children. They can be rather dominant towards other dogs, but this greatly depends upon their training and the individual dog



The wire-haired coat is smooth. The most common colour is tan with a grey-black “saddle”



The Airedale Terrier requires little grooming under normal circumstances. The hair should be plucked about twice per year, but for dogs that are to be shown much more intensive grooming is required. When necessary, trim excess hair between the pads of the feet



The Airedale Terrier is intelligent enough to perceive quickly what is required of it. Try to ring the changes in its training, because if consistently given the same instructions it is liable to become stubborn.

It is best to make the exercises a challenge, with the right handler, Airedale Terriers can do well in various dog sports including defence dog trials
