Format:Paperback
"Take equal parts of intelligence, strength, heart, and loyalty. Add a generous portion of humor, sensitivity, and high energy. Throw in a pinch of stubborness and feistiness. Pack this inside a handsome 50- to 70-pound dog . . . and you have the Airedale Terrier."
With this humorous introduction, dog trainer and author Dorothy Miner begins her book on Airedale Terriers, amusing those readers who have experience with this wonderful breed of dog and giving fair warning to those considering getting one. What follows this opening -- while it may maintain the same light-hearted tone -- is an interesting, readable book that is tightly packed with information. In the dozen-plus chapters that follow, Miner examines the breed in detail: the Airedale's history, considerations in puchasing an Airedale, basics and beyond in regard to raising and/or breeding Airedales, thoughts on owner responsibility, and more! With a well-thought-out table of contents and a concise index, the book is a breeze to use, whether reading from cover to cover or looking for an answer to a specific question.
From Miner's coverage of the topic, it's apparent she knows her stuff about dogs -- and Airedales in particular. Her words, like her in-person work, exude a calm, logical attitude -- an approach that is inspiring to the new dog owner. AIREDALE TERRIERS by Dorothy Miner is the kind of training manual that readers will turn to for new-puppy guidance and one they'll return to again and again as their dogs grow.

Well written overview or the basics of Airedale terriers. If you are considering the breed or are new to the breed, it's a must own book. Having had airedales for 25 years, I found the book informative and the chapter on training to be excellent. The author knows her stuff too... hands on all airedale obedience training included. This has all the information in one place in a well written, easy to understand format.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Information, Especially for the Price Sept. 15 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I was pleasantly surprised by this book on Airedales. For an inexpensive book, it contained great "breed specific" information on raising and training an Airedale. It also had lots of great photographs. It is, however, written in a manner which scared off my wife from the breed -- sort of no-nonsense, this is a big decision, don't take it lightly, an Airedale is not for everyone -- kind of way.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bible for new Airedale owners Nov. 23 2001
Format:Paperback
I have owned Airedale Terriers since 1979 and have bred them since 1985. This book captures all the essential information about Airedales and organizes it in a very readable manner. I send the book home with every Airedale puppy that I sell. This book gets my highest recommendation.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not My Favorite Airedale Terrier Book March 10 2011
By MN Boulevard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|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, this 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.

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. Mainly Black and White.

Not rated:
Airedale Terriers (Pebble Books). This one is a children's book and has a dozen or so color pages.

All in all, the information contained in these books are similar in nature. In my opinion, the ones rated towards the top are the most comprehensive.

As a last note, I finally have my Airedale puppy and it was worth the wait. He's the best dog ever!
