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 like  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.

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.

The Airedale Terrier makes for an excellent member in a family that has kids. It is aggressive by nature, so if it is needed to interact well with other pets and suppress its hunting instincts, it is advisable to raise it from early years with smaller animals like cats and rabbits. It interacts better with larger animals, unless in a threatening situation.

The lifespan of an Airedale Terrier is from 10 to 13 years, similar to other breeds of this size. It is a fairly sturdy breed, but some dogs are prone to eye infections, hip dysplasia and skin infections and need to be checked for these regularly. Hip Dysplasia, which is a genetic cause of arthritis, should be checked for in dogs that are being used for breeding. Skin infections can be discovered late in some dogs because of their dense coats. If you are looking for a dignified, smart and courageous pet, whom you can give a good amount of time to, an Airedale is a very good choice for you and your family.
