This is a great video not only showing how agile an Airedale Terrier can be, but also showing how smart they are and eager to please their human companions.

From my own experience, having owned 6 Airedales now, I can say they’re very smart and usually easy to train. They just love pleasing their human companions.

Now, when I say easy to train oh, I guess it’s all relative, because of the fact that they are very smart and think independently, they can be very stubborn. Also, they tend to get bored easily. So, from my personal observations and interactions with this great dog breed oh, I can honestly say if you keep your training sessions relatively short, and do not repeat any exercise more than two or three times in a session oh, and most importantly respond to them with enthusiasm and loving kindness, you’ll end up with a well-trained companion.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

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. Airedales have generally long puppyhoods and tend to be more difficult to train in their youth.

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. If children and Airedales are both trained correctly, Airedales can be an excellent choice for a family dog. Airedales can do well with cats and other small animals, especially when they are raised with them. They are also very loyal to their owners.

Albert Payson Terhune wrote of the Airedale: “Among the mine-pits of the Aire, the various groups of miners each sought to develop a dog which could outfight and outhunt and outthink the other miner’s dogs. Tests of the first-named virtues were made in inter-mine dog fights. Bit by bit, thus, an active, strong, heroic, compactly graceful and clever dog was evolved – the earliest true form of the Airedale.

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.”
