The largest of the Terriers, the Airedale Terrier is sometimes referred to as the “King of Terriers.” The Airedale is an energetic, loving companion that can adapt to any environment and excels at agility, obedience, and other activities. Their non-shedding, double layer coats keep them comfortable in any temperature, and they are patient and kind with children and other pets. The Airedale is extremely trainable and eager to learn, and loves to exercise.
The Airedale was originally named the Waterside or Bingley Terrier, but was renamed the Airedale in 1880.
The Airedale Terrier originated in England in the mid-19th century.
