Airedale Terrier   Active, Intelligent


Known as the “King of Terriers,” the Airedale Terrier is the largest Terrier (males are up to 23” inches), and also the most varied in work: everything from guard dog to ratter to messenger, to hunter. They are a highly intelligent breed and your Airedale will need you to provide them with training and positive activities to keep their sharp minds occupied. Their coats need regular, but excessive brushing
