Overview - Airedale Terrier
Called "the king of terriers" by his fans, the Airedale may really be the smartest of the terriers -- a quality that will make or break him as a family pet, depending on whether or not his owner minds being occasionally outsmarted by a dog. Fortunately he's a handsome devil as well as a clever one, and charming enough to compensate for a certain degree of stubbornness. Owners who aren't ready to provide consistent training from a young age, as well as firm but loving guidance as he grows up, are going to discover that the Airedale Terrier is way too much dog to handle.
History of Airedale Terrier
The now-extinct black and tan terrier is thought to have been the father of several terrier breeds, including the Airedale. The breed probably began to be developed some time in the 1840s. Like so many terriers, he was bred in a specific area to do a certain type of work over a certain type of terrain. Hailing from the Aire valley in Yorkshire, where by 1864 the miners and wool workers who favored them knew them as Working, Waterside or Bingley terriers, the proto Airedales hunted all types of game: fox, badger, weasel, otter, water rats and more. They worked on land and along the waterside, in partnership with Otterhounds, which did the actual water work. The Otterhound contributed quite a bit to the Airedale’s genealogy, in fact, as local breeders hoped the cross would improve the Airedale’s scenting and swimming abilities.
