Is an Airedale Terrier the Right Dog Breed for You?
The Airedale has been bred for hunting, and they have excelled at police work and as service dogs as well. They are very smart and training should start early. They can be aloof with strangers and are good guard dogs. They need regular activity and exercise, as well as close human companionship to prevent boredom related behaviors such as digging and chewing. They are low shedders and are considered low-allergen as well.
