The Airedale Terrier is known as "King of Terriers" because it represents some of the finest features of this group. The Airedale Terrier is a large terrier with long flat head, deep chest and harsh wiry coat. The well-balanced dog stands square, with a level top line and very straight front legs.
It's unbeatable for its size and weight when trained for a watchdog. It's initially suspicious of strangers, territorial, independent, energetic and has untiring courage. Excels in hunting, agility, eyesight and hearing. It's a sturdy, well-boned, well-muscled dog. Because of their athletic physique the Airedale Terriers make good jogging partners.
The coat should be tan with black (or dark grizzle) markings on sides and upper body. A bit of red in the black and/or a small white star on the chest are permitted.
The Airedale Terrier has a non-shedding-double coat with a hard, dense and wiry outer coat and a soft undercoat.
It may suffer from eye problems, skin infections and hip dysplasia. To minimize the risk of your Airedale Terrier developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a puppy from a reputable breeder.
