Because of their intelligence the Airedale Terrier is a quick learner, but when training one must always be on the lookout for overdoing one set of actions or commands that can lead to classic Airedale boredom and stubbornness to continue.

It’s usually best to break up Airedale training sessions and to always vary the lessons.

 Airedale Training – Germany

In the dog school near Berlin as well as near Leipzig the Airedale Terrier Balin was trained by the dog trainer team Uwe Krüger, Bettina Krüger and Joanna Bauer in the individual and group training.

It was emphasized that the dog in everyday situations such as in the shopping center and in the park, is neutral to its environment and thus has grown into a relaxed family companion.
