Airedale Terrier Breed overview
The Airedale Terrier is the largest terrier of all breeds. They are sturdy and tall with a very muscular body that is covered with coarse coat and fat.
Do Airedale terriers shed a lot? Yes They shed a lot but not known for extreme shedding like some other breeds (akita, Corgi, Chow Chow), however you have to groom them frequently.
They were developed for hunting, because of great strength, agility, and size that made them suitable for hunting medium and small-sized animals such as foxes, rabbits, and rats among others.
Even though, terriers have a reputation of being stubborn and independent, Airedale Terrier is trainable. Of course, they are confident and proud, but they enjoy reward training especially if you start from an early age.
They require lots of exercise in order to stay healthy and happy. You should walk them at least twice a day because they can develop behaviour problems if you leave them alone.
Airedale Terriers can reach 61 cm in height and 29 kg in weight.
Their lifespan is approximately 14 years.
