The Airedale can be used as a working dog and also as a hunting dog. Airedales exhibit some herding

characteristics as well, and have a propensity to chase animals. They have no problem working with

cattle and livestock. However, an Airedale that is not well trained will agitate and annoy the animals.

Strong-willed, with the tenacity commonly seen in terriers, the Airedale is a formidable opponent.

The Airedale Terrier, like most Terriers, has been bred to hunt independently. As a result, the dog is very

intelligent, independent, strong-minded, stoic, and can sometimes be stubborn. They rank 29th in Stanley

Coren's The Intelligence of Dogs, being of above average working/obedience intelligence. The Airedale

is a dog with a great sense of humor. For those who can laugh along with their

Airedale, the dog can

provide a unique and entertaining company. For those who don't appreciate being outsmarted by their

dog, owning an Airedale can be a trying experience. Patience and consistency in training will be rewarded

as the Airedales have been known to reach great heights in competitive obedience, dog agility, and

Schutzhund. Airedales need an owner that can be creative in teaching what is expected. Airedales

usually get bored easily and need a trainer that has the ability to make working fun and exciting.

Changing the routine or taking a play-break is much more productive than trying to force the Airedale. If

children and Airedale are both trained correctly, Airedales can be an excellent choice for a family dog.
