Coat and Grooming
Airedales have a wire coat that is low in odor and is dirt repelling. It is almost non shedding and you wonít find dog hair all over your house, clothes or your car. To keep the trim terrier profile, purists hand strip their dogs several times a year but most owners prefer to clipper their dog 3-4 times a year.
Airedales are relatively healthy breed compared to other purebreds but you should choose your Vet carefully. Airedales are their own worst enemy, rarely showing pain. They can be seriously ill before presenting any symptoms at all. Your Vet must understand this. If the dog appears sick or in distress YOU must understand it usually is very serious and requires attention NOW!
