Shelter Dog Cries Every Time He’s Touched ā€” Until He is Loved

Kanye the shelter puppy couldn’t stop crying out in pain when anyone came near him because he’d never felt a gentle touch.

But then he met this woman, and she knew exactly how to transform him into the most trusting dog.

This was heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time! So awful what people can do to animals. I’m so happy that he met that woman, bless her soul. šŸ™‚

There are many good caring people in the world … And there are many people and animals longing for the love that we are so willing to give! The two just need to be connected! Read more »


Airedale Terrier and Rottweiler

Airedale Terrier and Rottweiler at Play

Posey the Airedale Terrier and Kelvin the Rottweiler show how two very different breeds with two very different play styles can mess them together so nicely!

Airedales are just great! I don’t think there is a better dog for kids on the planet than an Airedale. I don’t think there is a better dog period. They are incredible.

Great vid but in my experiences the docility of this breed is very dependant on the breeder. They can range from being extremely gentle to downright nuts depending on their breeding.

The Airedale was developed from the OTTERHOUND and THE OLD ENGLISH BLACK &TAN TERRIER, which is now extinct. NOT THE WELSH TERRIER, the Old English Black & Tan looks very much like the Welsh Terrier. That said, the Airedale is not AGGRESSIVE.

The Oorang Airedale (also known as a Mountain Airedale or King Airedale) is the largest of the Airedales and can weigh 70 to 110 lbs.

California Airedale Terrier – Scary Airedale

Scary California Airedale Terrier

Well, we all know that Airedale Terriers are anything but scary! Actually, I think one of the reasons they’re popular is because the standard black and tan Airedale Terrier looks likeĀ  a teddy bear!

How many little kids grew up with teddy bears? So, it’s probably natural that when they see an Airedale Terrier they are reminded of the stuffed animal that they had when they were little kid.

California Airedale Terrier

An Airedale is a quick learner and can be trained very easily. But, it also gets bored quickly, and requires regular mental and physical stimulation. A long walk, a chance to romp through a safe area or a physically tiring game should be good enough for this. A bored Airedale is known to fill up a yard with holes in one evening. Read more »

California Rattlesnakes dog safety

If you own dogs in the Western United States, you should be vigilant about poisonous snakes on trails or in your backyard. Here in San Diego California there are a couple of varieties of rattlesnakes that you will encounter on a hiking trails and open areas on the fringes of the city and the county of San Diego.

Because my house borders a small San Diego city Park, I always scan the fence lines and the backyard prior to putting the dogs out, to be sure there are no rattlesnakes. this video was produced in late September and I had just gone out in the backyard and looked around and didn’t see anything so I let both of my Airedale Terriers out. It was about 11:30 PM, and when my smaller female Airedale was within about 18 inches to 2 feet of my backyard fence I heard the distinctive rattle of a rattlesnake. My larger Airedale was right at my side, so I grabbed him by the collar as I yelled at the smaller Airedale to come over to me. Luckily, the smaller Airedale did come to me rather than moving forward to investigate the sound that the fence. Read more »

Airedale Terrier Grooming

Airedale Terrier Grooming

An easy way to create a perfect head shape on an Airedale Terrier.

The difference between Airedale Terrier clipping and hand-stripping is that not only is hand-stripping done by hand, but it removes coat from the root (not just the top layer) so a new coat is able to grow in. Each time you clip an Airedale’s coat instead of hand stripping, you are just taking off the top layer of dead fur rather than removing it from the roots ā€“ as a result, the coat may become duller in texture and color with each clipping.

This just occurred early September 2017 in Mission Trails Regional Park in the City of San Diego are working lately. Mission Trails Regional Park youat approximately 5800 ac.Ā²Ā  is the largest regional Park this side of the Mississippi. There are a lot of great hiking and mountain bike trails going throughout the park.

I like to take my two mountain Airedale Terriers hiking here usually late in the day when the temperature is going down and we don’t have to go in the direct sun. So, it’s not uncommon that we see quite a few rattlesnakes. Just two weeks ago I saw rattlesnakes on three out of the five days that we took our walks. Read more »
