Airedale Rescue Information: The Airedale Terrier is a lively, intelligent breed. Airedales are loyal and eager to please and respond very well to obedience training. Airedales make entertaining pets and great working or hunting dogs. The Airedale Terrier has a dominant streak and can be very rowdy unless properly trained. Airedale Terriers may play too roughly for very small children, but usually do fine with kids if exposed to them as puppies. Airedales get along well with cats but might bully other dogs in a household with multiple pets. Airedales need a lot of exercise and long walks every day or they may act up and get into trouble.
