This is a good video on trimming your Airedale Terrier.

I’ve always been a do-it-yourselfer when it comes to grooming my two Mountain Airedale Terriers. Mostly,DIY grooming is out of necessity because I know that neither of my two Airedale’s would put up with professional grooming.

I think if you want to bring your hairdo and for professional grooming you should start when they’re a puppy so they get used to the experience. On the other hand, looking at videos like this, that go over the entire procedure, and getting a good set of electronic clippers, it’s really relatively easy to do this yourself.

From personal experience, I know I always seem to leave my two dogs with spots on their coats where I’ve taken off too much in one pass. when this happens, it really doesn’t look good, but within two weeks you’ll not be able to see your mistakes any longer.

Naturally, if you’re into showing your dogs, professional dog grooming is a must. For our two Oorang Airedale Terriers, here in San Diego California, we only do a full grooming once a year. Usually, around March we take off their winter coat so that there more comfortable in the spring and summer season. Plus, with the Airedale shorter coat, they really look like a totally different dog, plus, you get an extra benefit with the shorter coat, and that’s not finding as much hair around the house.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

In 1919 Oorang Kennel owner, Walter Lingo, met and became friends with Jim Thorpe of the Canton Bulldogs, a future Pro Football Hall of Famer who was considered the greatest athlete of his time. Lingo had had a deep passion for the Airedales, which he raised, and for Native American culture. LaRue, Ohio, was once the site of an old Wyandot village and Lingo believed that a supernatural bond existed between the Indians and the Airedales. Thorpe first came to Lingo’s defense after neighboring farmers accused Lingo’s Oorang Kennels of raising “a nation of sheep killers”. Thorpe came to Lingo’s aid by testifying that he once knew an Oorang Airedale that had saved the life of a 6-year-old girl, named Mabel, from being trampled by a bull. Afterwards, Lingo and Thorpe became friends and soon began hunting together.
