Airedoodle Breed Maintenance
The Airedoodle will likely have moderate shedding and will require regular brushing. How much shedding will be dependent on whether the coat is more like that of a Poodle, who does not shed, or an Airedale Terrier who does. The maintenance of a Poodle includes trimming, brushing and shampooing (with a dog shampoo), while the Airedale Terrier requires brushing twice a week along with shaping. The Airedoodle should have their teeth brushed regularly to ensure long term dental health and their nails should be trimmed as needed; a good sign that nail trimming time is near is when you can hear a clicking sound as your Airedoodle crosses the floor. Like many other dogs, the Airedoodle will require training from a young age. Happy to perform in obedience classes, certain commands will come easily. Behavior training will help your dog avoid developing bad habits that may be difficult to break. It is important that while you are training your dog that you don’t get impatient. It is likely that you will have to repeat the command multiple times and negative reinforcement is not recommended. Do your best to avoid keeping any frustration that you feel out of your voice. Your dog will sense you are growing frustrated and can associate training with making you unhappy.
