The Airedale Terrier does not require a lot of grooming, although most owners do choose to have their Airedale professionally groomed, three to four times a year. The Airedale Terrier is not known for extreme shedding, but he does shed certain times of the year. Regular brushing, once or twice a week, keeps the coat in good condition. Periodic bathing, as needed is suggested but be careful, over-bathing is not recommended, as this will soften their coarse terrier coat.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Airedales weigh approximately 50-80 pounds, being active and agile enough to perform well, while not too small to function as a physical deterrent, retriever or hunter. Some breeders have produced larger Airedale Terriers, such as the ‘Oorang Airedale’, developed in the 1920s.

Ex-Army captain and Airdale breeder Walter Lingo’s monthly magazine “Oorang Comments” (#25, page 81), stated that “When full grown your Airedale dog will weigh from forty to fifty-five pounds and if a female will weigh slightly less. This is the standard weight, but when required, we can furnish oversized Airedales whose weight will be from sixty to one hundred pounds.”

Because Lingo tried to fill orders for everyone, the Oorang strain size was never standardized. Airedales weighing from 40 to 100 pounds were produced, but for the most part they were approximately 50 pounds and 22 to 24 inches at the shoulder. In the United States, the male Airedales measure 40 to 70 pounds, with the Oorang strain typically in the 80 to 120 pound range.


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.”

  1. Very interested in adopting an Airedale. Can you tell me the difference between the standard and oorang? Other than the oorang being taller, do they look exactly the same? How tall is a male oorang Airedale? Do you have any male puppies up to 2 yrs old available or either standard or oorang? If so, how much would he be?
