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.
This athletic and outgoing dog is the largest of the terrier group.
The first attempt at creating the Airedale was in 1853 through the cross of a Rough-Coated Black and Tan Terrier with an Otterhound.
