The dog park areas have a posted 6 a.m. opening, but really I think they open closer to 5:30 a.m..  Today when we arrived at the park a handful of dogs on the inside, all were on leashes and there were three or four more people waiting at the entry. So, right away I knew something was up. As we’re walking from the car toward the  large dog area, some park personnel pulled up and entered the  enclosure. It’s then that I found out that they were here to remove a 3 foot rattlesnake. Unfortunately, I also learned that just shortly before we arrived, a younger dog was bitten by this rattlesnake.

Living with Large Airedale Terriers

Living with Large Airedale Terriers

This Airedale Terrier video is a look back when we were still living in San Diego California with our two large Airedale Terriers.

Airedale Terriers, both the regular size, and the large ones, have wonderful dispositions and are easily trained.

In the photo at the start of the video below, that’s our Annie on the left and  Oakley on the right. Both these dogs have now crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, but my wife and myself have many fond memories of these two great companions. Continue reading “Living with Large Airedale Terriers”

Teddy weighs about 85 pounds and Tova when she turned 26 weeks old weighed in at 52.6 pounds! I’ve had both the regular size Airedales and these larger Airedales, and I can say that as far as personality, and other characteristics of the breed, they are exactly the same. There are just Airedale lovers like myself and many others who feel that the larger Airedale is the ideal size. Now, were not taking away anything from the standard Airedale and the AKC specifications for it, but, are hoping that one day, the AKC will recognize the larger Airedale.

Arizona Mountain Airedale Terriers

Arizona Mountain Airedale Terriers

Tova is a 14 week old Arizona Mountain Airedale Terrier. Her housemate is Teddy who is also a larger Airedale Terrier.

When Teddy first came to San Diego we had Annie who had just given birth to nine puppies about five months before Teddy arrived. Annie and Teddy were inseparable, and when we moved from San Diego to Arizona in November 2020 they were both exceedingly happy in their new house and their new big backyard.
