Airedale Puppy Love

Airedale Puppy Love

It’s clear from my last video of these Airedale Terrier puppies playing, that people like to watch these little guys as they’re having fun. So, is your second video of my nine, 4 1/2 week old Airedale Terriers playing in my home in San Diego California.

Really, who is not going to get cheered up just watching a couple minutes of these guys romping around? If there was somebody like that, I don’t think they’d be a friend of mine.

I don’t know if they still have it, but I remember around the holidays, one of the local TV channels would play hours of just a log burning in the fireplace. I guess this is my equivalent to that holiday log, nine little Airedale puppies just having fun!

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Like many terriers, the breed has a ‘broken’ coat, which is hard and wiry. It is meant to be kept not so long as to appear ragged, and lies straight and close, covering body and legs. The outer coat is hard, wiry and stiff, the undercoat softer. The hardest coats are crinkly or just slightly waved. Curly soft coats are highly undesirable.

The coat is hypoallergenic, tending not to generate allergic reactions in people.

Airedales bearing undercoats are generally groomed by hand stripping where a small serrated edged knife is used to pull out loose hair from the dog’s coat. Most Airedales require frequent (6 to 8 weeks) clipping or stripping as they do not shed.

The AKC breed standard states that the correct coat color is either a black saddle, with a tan head, ears and legs; or a dark grizzle saddle (black mixed with gray and white). Grizzle that is a mix of red hair in the black, often on the area of back before the tail are often the best and harshest coats. There are, however, examples of non-standard black-coated and “red” (tan) coated Airedales, (the solid colored Airedales are NOT able to be AKC registered, since they are deviations from breed standard and have yet to be proven ‘purebred’ Airedale Terriers.) There are also the short coated “Redline” type Airedales, they appear to be genetic throwbacks in looks to the Airedale’s early days when the breed’s coats were much shorter than today’s Airedale. Even with their shorter coat they still have the same hard wiry outer coat with a soft under coat and fall well within the criteria of the breed standard and therefore can be AKC registered and most are registered.


The Airedale Terrier – – – He is swift, formidable, graceful, big of brain, an ideal chum and guard. ….To his master he is an adoring pal. To marauders he is a destructive lightning bolt.”

Airedale – once you’ve had one you will never want any other breed of dog.
