California Rattlesnakes dog safety

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 Puppy Training

Airedale Puppy Training – Airedale Terrier puppy training

Airedale Terriers are very smart dogs and therefore  usually easy to train. This video shows the training of a three-month-old Airedale Terrier puppy.

My personal observations about training and/or playing with in Airedale Terrier is that they do bore easily. Therefore I would suggest not to linger on a single command for too long and have your training sessions at least once a day, always with multiple commands and plenty of treats. 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 – as a result, the coat may become duller in texture and color with each clipping.

Russian Airedale Terriers

Russian Airedale Terriers

Who would think that the Airedale Terrier which has its origins in England would be popular in Russia? bbut, from this video it certainly looks like Russians can appreciate all the qualities of the Airedale Terrier.

The Airedale is indeed the largest of all terriers. The Airedale breed originated in the Aire Valley of Yorkshire, and was created to catch otters and rats in the region between the Aire and Wharfe Rivers. The Airedale became an ideal working dog, proving his worth during World War I. Intelligent, outgoing, and confident, the Airedale Terrier possesses a wonderful playful streak that delights his owners.

California Dog Rattlesnake

California Dog Rattlesnake – larger Airedale Terriers encounter usage rattlesnake.

This just occurred early September 2017 in Mission Trails Regional Park in the City of San Diego California.you are working lately. Mission Trails Regional Park youat approximately 5800 ac.²  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 »

Airedale Terrier training – Teaching the Airedale Terrier tricks

This is an incredible video showing the training of an Airedale Terrier. Not only is the trainer and the Airedale Terrier performing incredible dog tricks, but, this Airedale  Terrier is one magnificent looking animal.

Naturally, before trying to teach your dog’s advanced tricks like shown in this video, make sure you have the basic dog training out of the way.

Because the Airedale Terrier is very smart, many times they can tick tick up a trick in just a handful of tries. Keep in mind that the Airedales get board easily, so do not linger too long on one trick or set of commands. Always use positive reinforcement and maintain a calm and confident attitude when training your Airedale. Read more »

Airedale Terrier Handstripping

Airedale Terrier Handstripping

Hand-stripping is a grooming method that Airedale Terrier owners use to remove excess hair from their dog’s coat. The most common method of dog grooming is clipping – this method involves the use of a pair of electric clippers which cut or shave the top layer of hair on a dog’s coat.

The difference between 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 a dog’s coat instead of hand stripping, you are just taking off the top layer of dead fur rather than removing it from the roots – as a result, the coat may become duller in texture and color with each clipping.

Airedale Terrier Grooming

Airedale Terrier Grooming

This is a good video on trimming your Airedale Terrier.

I’ve always been a do-it-yourselfer when it comes to grooming my two Mountain Airedale Terriers. Mostly,DIY grooming is out of necessity because I know that neither of my two Airedale’s would put up with professional grooming.

I think if you want to bring your hairdo and for professional grooming you should start when they’re a puppy so they get used to the experience. On the other hand, looking at videos like this, that go over the entire procedure, and getting a good set of electronic clippers, it’s really relatively easy to do this yourself. Read more »

Airedale Training

 Airedale Training – Germany

In the dog school near Berlin as well as near Leipzig the Airedale Terrier Balin was trained by the dog trainer team Uwe Krüger, Bettina Krüger and Joanna Bauer in the individual and group training.

The main focus of the training was elements in which the obedience of the dog and its behavior in the public, for example during the meeting with pedestrians, joggers and cyclists is checked. It was emphasized that the dog in everyday situations such as in the shopping center and in the park, is neutral to its environment and thus has grown into a relaxed family companion.

Dog training should not be about domination, but communication. Read more »
