Airedales can be great family pets. They're fun-loving and great with children, though they should probably be supervised due to their large size and rambunctious spirit.
Airedale Terriers are loyal, yet they have a stubborn streak. Infrequent barkers, these dogs make great playmates and are very intelligent.
This breed is very patient with children and tolerant of other household pets. They may occasionally try to dominate other dogs, however, so training is required.Airedales can be an excellent choice for a family dog.
The Airedale Terrier's coat usually requires very little grooming. The hair should be plucked twice yearly. Show dogs require much more intensive grooming.
This breed is intelligent and understands trainers very well. Care must be taken to keep them occupied during training, however, as they can become easily bored.
The Airedale Terrier should be allowed three walks a day, plus an ample yard for playing catch and running around.
Country of Origin:
This breed is very hardy, but may suffer from eye problems, hip dysplasia, and skin infections.
Wellington is a playful intelligent dog with large features. He was 11 months old when he sired this litter so his personality had not fully developed. He taught himself how to open doors and ring doorbells so he is highly intelligent alert and ready to learn. He was approximately 100 pounds when he sired the puppies and will probably gain 10 more pounds over the next year. Wellington has never shown food aggression. Wellington has litter mates that have completed military obedience training. In this photo Wellington is in the foreground and Shakey is in the background.
Shakespeare (Shakey) is a very gentle and attentive dog. She is sensitive to training with positive reinforcements. She is a night watch dog in an urban environment and makes up her own mind about who to bark at and who to leave alone. She is not swayed by overly friendly behavior by visitors. She is good with children and other dogs. She has never shown food aggression. Shakespeare is 60 pounds but her mother was 110 pounds. She was the runt of her litter. In this photo Shakey is on the right.

Questions You Should Ask the Breeder
1. Are the puppies' parents "certified"? This means that certain breeds are often at risk for genetic conditions such as hip problems, heart problems and eye problems. Most of these diseases are inherited, meaning the disease is passed from parent to puppy. Many breeders will have their dogs evaluated and tested for that disease and ultimately "certified" by a veterinary specialist to be disease-free.
2. What are the sizes of the puppy's parents? Know how big the parents are, to get a good idea of how big your puppy will be. Is that the size dog you want?
3. Ask to meet the dogs parents. If possible, meet the puppy's parents. Notice if they appear to be in good health and evaluate their overall temperament. Are they shy, aggressive, or well adjusted?
4. How have they socialized the pups? Have the pups been around other dogs? Other people? Socialization is critical in puppies 6 – 16 weeks old. Proper socialization consisting of good experiences of a puppy with other puppies and lots of different ages, sizes and types of people will give you the best chance at having a well-adjusted dog.
5. What vaccines has the puppy had? How many shots has he received and when will the puppy be due for his next puppy shot?
6. Have the puppies been dewormed? All puppies are born with worms and routine deworming is recommended.
7. Have any of the puppies in the litter been sick? If so, what were the signs, the diagnosis and treatment?
8. What visits has the puppies had with the veterinarian? Have they been examined and declared "healthy"? If not, what problems have they had? Have they been on any medications?
9. What is their guarantee? What guarantee does the breeder give with their puppies? If the puppy is found to have a severe illness, what will they do? This is a difficult topic but one that is a lot easier to cover up front rather than later.
10. Recommendations? Ask the breeder for a couple references of puppy owners that they have sold within the past year. CALL them. Find out if the breeder was fair, if they were happy with their pups, and how any problems were handled.
11. Breeders contract? Does your breeder require a breeder's contract? If so, what is in it? Is the breeder willing to take back the puppy at any time, if you can't keep it?
12. Limited registration. Some breeders require that you spay or neuter your dog by a certain age. If that is the case, that may not be a problem but it is best to know before you get your puppy.
13. What is the family history? Ask if the breeder has information about the breed line. For example, ask how long the dogs have lived and what they have died from. Write it down. This may be important for monitoring your pet as he gets older.
14. What is the breeder currently feeding the puppy? Regardless of what they are feeding, it is ideal to continue feeding the same food for the first few days at home to minimize the risk of gastrointestinal disturbances. If you choose to change the diet, do it gradually.
15. Health certificate and certificate of sale. Ask the breeder if he will supply a health certificate for the puppy issued by his veterinarian. Some states require also a certificate of sale.
16. Does the breeder belong to a breed club? Ask for references.
