So we are currently looking for a pup if any one has any good inside leads, much obliged, Dave & Kristen

Just kidding. We actually had an Airedale long ago. We now have a Keey Blue Terrier. An Angel…

Sorry for the typo. Should be Kerry Blue Terrier

I love the info you’ve placed about Airedales. I would revise that the “Airedale Terrier are always told what to do, they can not work on their own.” In my experience Airedales NEED to have Consistant direction and reward, if not they will find activities to follow on their own. Those include chewing and digging. I have been very lucky with mine but be sure that you have the space and/or patience for these super smart dogs to explore.
