Features of training airedale at home

Due to the high level of intelligence and energy, the upbringing and training of the Airedale, with the right approach, will bring more joy than disappointment. It is imperative that praise be used more often than censure.
However, a novice or a person who is not very familiar with the features of the breed, from time to time training an airedale can fall into despair.
The main complaint of the hapless trainer to the edel is stubbornness, which the donkey will envy. Indeed, if this dog rests, it can be killed or fed all the sweets, while the dog will still do exclusively what he sees fit. And even crack.
Why it happens? Everything is very simple: the Airedale became banally bored.
If the instructor you are involved with offers an airedale to “break off,” urgently look for another specialist!
For some breeds, such a strategy works, but a similar focus will not work with herdel. Even if you, at the cost of incredible efforts, manage to make him obey under severe pressure, you cannot be sure of the pet. And at the most inopportune moment he will surely win back: he will throw out such that he will plunge you into the abyss of despair.
Airedale are independent, extremely smart and extremely cunning. Therefore, they can give master classes in the art of disobedience. Where another dog would give up long ago, exhausted by the struggle, the Airedale will come up with a thousand and one ways to resist. Sometimes it feels like these dogs are just too smart to be disciplined. Erdel quickly realizes that “the work of fools loves” and tirelessly proves to everyone around that he definitely does not belong to the category of fools.
What to do? Like all ingenious, the secret is simple, but not for everyone. The key to the heart of the Airedale is the constant maintenance of interest.
Start with your airedale puppy from the moment he gets into your home. And so that the process of training the Airedale terrier does not turn into sheer torture, neither for you, nor for the pet, from early childhood teach him that classes are not a punishment, but a fun and entertaining game. In this case, remarkable intellect and passion of airedale will become your ally, and the pet will learn with such pleasure that you also have to restrain its ardor!
Airedale are very smart and reckless. Use this quality, direct in the right direction - and you will achieve such successes that did not dream of the owners of other breeds.
When properly educated, these "anarchists" demonstrate angelic obedience to which everyone around them will envy.
Airedale - box with surprises. It happens that you learn a technique for a long time, but all to no avail. And suddenly, when you are already embraced by despondency, the command is not just executed, but executed perfectly - and the dog continues to fulfill it flawlessly until the end of his life. Therefore, do not get annoyed and do not despair if something does not work out in the training of an airedale terrier the first time.
Erdel does not complain about memory. Everything that he once learned is remembered forever.
Know the measure. If you make your pet do well-trained commands dozens of times, he will lose all interest in you and in your classes. But if necessary, you will be surprised at the tirelessness and endurance of the Airedale.
Representatives of the breed are annoyed by walks exclusively on a leash. Being attached to you, they will not be able to satisfy their passion for knowing the world around them and give an outlet to boiling energy. In this case, an interesting but inaccessible alloy of images and sounds will occupy all his thoughts, and at the first opportunity the pet will go on an independent expedition. Walking will turn from pleasure into a fight when you try to keep the dog on a leash and prevent it from running.
Give Erdell the opportunity to run without a leash.Call him periodically, sometimes (not every time!) Fasten the leash, and then release it again, treat yourself to a stored treat and play with it. Of course, for such walks you need to choose safe places, without cars, a large crowd of other people and dogs.
Airedale does not apply to dogs that will follow you and look into your eyes while walking. However, if you do everything right, he will closely monitor you and instantly respond to commands or warnings.

Of course, the ability to walk on a leash is a vital necessity. But whenever possible, try to give the pet independence. This will benefit your relationship.
Many owners are interested in how quickly the Airedale is growing up. As a rule, he becomes an adult in about two years. And the transformation is unexpected and instantaneous. Notice this not only you, but also those around you (both dogs and people). If before, someone offended the airedale, now he can "avenge" everything in a crowd.
Airedale intelligent and do not melt a stone in the bosom. Unreasonable aggression does not occur in them. At the same time, they are perfectly mastering the guard and guard service and are able to protect the owner's family, car and home.
If you do everything right when training an airedale, the airedale will reward you a hundredfold. The dog will bring you a lot of joy, you will get a loyal friend and protector with amazing potential.
What to teach an airedale?
Basic lessons that ensure the safety of the airedale and the peace of others: "To me", "Nearby", "Fu", "Place", "Sit", "Lie", "Give." Basic commands must be executed implicitly and in any situation.
However, the intelligence and learning ability of the Airedale terrier allows you not to stop at the minimum course of obedience. Airedale perfectly showed themselves as athletes (agility, frisbee, freestyle, obedience, protective types of training, search and rescue service and other types). The airedale, with the right approach, is a truly versatile dog, smart and hardy.
