Book Description

This Comprehensive Owner’s Guide to the Airedale Terrier serves as a complete introduction to the breed known to his admirers as “the king of terriers.” The largest of the British terriers, the Airedale, hailing from that industrial town in northeastern England, has been favored as a working terrier, show dog, military messenger dog, and farm dog since the nineteenth century. The book begins with an entertaining chapter on the breed’s history in England followed by chapters on characteristics and the breed standard encapsulating all of the virtues of this imposing terrier breed, offering sound advice about which owners are best suited to the breed.

New owners will welcome the well-prepared chapter on finding a breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy. Chapters on puppy-proofing the home and yard, purchasing the right supplies for the puppy as well as house-training, feeding, and grooming are illustrated with handsome adults and puppies bursting with energy and personality! In all, there are over 135 photographs in this compact, useful, and reliable volume. The author’s advice on obedience training the super smart Airedale will help readers better mold and train their dogs into the most socialized, well-mannered dog in the neighborhood. The extensive chapter on healthcare written by Dr. Lowell Ackerman provides up-to-date detailed information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, parasites, infectious diseases, and more. Sidebars throughout the text offer helpful hints, covering topics as diverse as historical kennels, toxic plants, first aid, crate training, carsickness, fussy eaters, and parasite control. Fully indexed.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the Airedale Terrier Book to Own March 10, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was on a waiting list for an Airedale Terrier for over 6 months so while I waited I ended up purchasing several books to educate myself on the breed and what to expect. Here are the 8 books that I purchase from my most favorite to my least favorite along with my review.

1. Airedale Terrier - A Comprehensive Guide to Owning and Caring for Your Dog, by: Bardi McLennan. 155 Pages. Color Pictures.

If you are going to own one Airedale Terrier book, the one ABOVE is the one to own. It is filled with information such as the History of the Airedale, Characteristics, Breed Standard, the Airedale Puppy, Proper Care, Training Tips, Health Care, and Showing. It filled with lots of color pictures and good information.

Below are other options which I rate below my first option above.

2. Airedale Terrier Today - Janet Huxley 174 Pages. Color Pictures.

3. Airedale Terrier - Pet Owners Guide, by Janet Huxley. 80 Pages. Color Pictures. This is a condensed version of the books listed above. Still an overall great book.

4. Airedale Terrier - A new Owner's Guide, Betty-Anne Stenmark. 158 Pages. Color Pictures.

5. Airedale Terrier - An Owner's Companion, Mary Swash and Donald Millar. 168 Pages. Black and White. In addition to general Airedale information, this book also provides information on the Airedale Bloodline listing some of the top Champions and Airedale breeders.

6. The New Airedale Terrier - Jun Dutcher and Janet Johnson Framke. 276 Pages. Black and White. In addition to general Airedale information, this book also provides information on the Airedale Bloodline listing some of the top Champions and Airedale breeders.

7. Airedale Terrier - A complete Pet Owner's Manual. 93 Pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learned A Lot! December 14, 2010
By pencom
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased "Airedale Terrier (Comprehensive Owner's Guide) to help prepare me for my
new Airedale pup.

The info I learned gave me a good idea of what I getting myself into and how to
deal with the turbo-charged bundle of energy my new pup provided.

This book will be kept on my reference shelf as a guide for the future.

Everything that a new owner needs for the selection, care and feeding of an Airdale
are provided in this excellent book.

I love this book and I bought it after I got my six months old Airedale Terrier tho months ago. He is the calmest and most gentle dog I ever had. I look forward to taking him to the beach again and go sailing with when the boat is ready.

It was pretty informative. I have a couple on Airedale Terriers. It would not be my top pick, but it wouldn't be last on the list either.
