How To Train Airedale Terrier A Perfect Way?

Mornin’ Airedale People!


The Airedale Terrier is a bright-eyed, quick-moving and ready-for-action-always type dog. I wrote about their relationship to children earlier. Now, we are dealing with their training. The intelligent eyes, keeping of ears and the erected-tail determine their outer look. S/he is an open, self-confident, self-respecting and friendly canine.

Of course, in order to act as a good citizen, s/he cannot do without proper training provided by a consistent hand because its considerable autonomy tendency.

By this, I mean that you should limit this dog’s will. And that is not easy, to put it mildly. Namely, to carry through its ideas s/he isn’t limited to putting on their – not minor – acting skills.

Why the Education Is Mandatory

As I wrote earlier, the Airedale Terrier breed requires active and enriched lives. Where their owners are unable to cater to their needs, there it becomes unmanageable, goes wild and turns into obstinate.

Therefore, it is common in such cases that s/he destroys the environment, and might pick up bad habits. Furthermore, this canine tends to get away where s/he sees an opportunity.

So, the Airedale is an ideal companion for people who have a lot of free time and want to spend it actively. That’s why it’s worth taking their training seriously, and carry out with agreement of your whole family.

Otherwise, it becomes a very inconvenient, annoying house-mate.

When We Start the Teaching

My experience dictates that we can begin the education already on the day the puppy arrived at our family. But, that only should happen in a playful way, because this isn’t the time of specific serious practices yet.

Rather we consolidate our relationship by the mutual playing, at the same time, strengthen his or her courage. The basic principle is that we only allowed to deal with our Airedale puppy if we are calm and in a good mood.

Nervous Specialties of Airedales

You would ask me “why the good mood is important”? Simple answer: because s/he will be in the similar mood, and thus learns faster. If you’re tense or angry when teaching the puppy, you must stop the sessions with him or her.

Because your Airedale Terrier doggie is unable to comprehend the reason of your upset state. Consequently, it could break a fear on him or her that almost paralyzed your pooch.

I note here, that any puppy’s nervous system is highly mouldable through education, whether positive or negative direction. With proper education, the shy little dog is trainable to be brave – and vice versa – the stubbornness reducible.

But, with only one reckless, violent punishment or bad experience might damage your puppy for life, even having a good nervous system. Which means that it has not become a decent working dog.

Educating Your Airedale Terrier

The early socialization of your Airedale puppy is important. That means familiarizing your pup with more and more, various people, animals, situations and sounds. We do this in order to behave confidently in different environments at its adult era.

During the teaching, it’s advisable to strive not to force the exercises until boredom. In fact, this kind of breed finds its delight in the variety and speed. Thus, you should remember this throughout the teaching.

Enlisting your Airedale Terrier in a puppy day-care session is a good start. To invite guests over frequently, and bringing it to busy shops, parks (which enable canines) are also worthy.

Such facilities, as well as convenient walks to encounter neighbors may also help your pooch to increase their social expertise.

Maintaining Their Attention

Due to its high intelligence, the Airedale Terrier puppy understands the task very quickly. Knowing that s/he very quickly understands the task, it’s good to practice only briefly with him/her until their interest is still ongoing.

So, before starting another practice, you should insert a short game between the two session. This means you play with your dog, enhancing their good mood and keep its enthusiasm further.

In the training, we should apply the positive reinforcement (praise, treats) continuously. Otherwise, our four-legged mate soon becomes listless and will ignore our commands.

The Momentum

This Terrier is a very family-loving and hard-to-bear the loneliness dog. We expect him to behave well-mannered, obedient, guard the house, love our children and the other members of the family.

Then, in return, you must have to provide the most important thing an Airedale is looking for; the experience of togetherness.

To do this it’s essential that our dog lives under the same roof with the family (its pack), which is natural for it. The Airedale Terrier has excluded from the home makes it more difficult to be obedient, due to the lack of bound and greater degree of independence.

All the best,
