The Airedale Terrier is known as the “King of the Terriers” for a reason because that’s one big terrier! This breed is intelligent and playful. They are an exceptional sporting dog, but also can serve as a capable working breed. This terrier originates from The Valley of Aire in Yorkshire, England. Black-and-tan terriers from the 1800s were originally crossed with Otterhounds for a hunting dog adept at chasing down and catching otters.

Although it was originally called the Waterside or Bingley Terrier, it became known as the Airedale Terrier in 1878. The American Kennel Club (AKC) recognized it in 1888 as part of the Terrier Group. The British army used Airedale Terriers as messenger and military dogs during World War I. It was also one of the earliest dog breeds to be used as a police dog in Germany and in Great Britain. The Airedale was also one of the first dog breeds to be used as search and rescue dogs.
