A buddy has jagdterriers. He'll on squirrels as are fox/rat/Jack Russell terriers. As a kid we had a bluetick/walker cross, he'll of a squirrel dog that trained a little rat terrier bitch to tree squirrels and coons.

My Airedale and buddies Airdales tree and have minimal shedding.

I've always been interested in an Airedale. How are they towards other dogs and people?

Mine has only ever shown aggression towards 1 person, a guy knocking on doors selling something.

Wife says once I leave she seems more protective. I guess she stays in the same room with my wife of stays in the doorway to that room where she can see down the hallway. Several other friends have pups from her and an old dog of my buds, no aggression.

Only ones I have seen that were/are a little aggressive are my buddies 2 males and I think most of that may be bluffing.

I did see his big male bite a neighbor one day that had been tormenting him with a stick of firewood, watched the whole thing play out when Bear jumped up and but the dude square on the ass, my bud got ready to beat the hell out of the dog when I told him the neighbor had it coming.

As far as other dogs mine goes with me to other people places that have dogs but she knows those dogs too. If anything it's the "home" dog that can start something but that is their home so that can happen naturally. Usually a swift kick to the ass Knocks that off.

Ours has 3 other small dogs around her and she acts as mother with them. Our youngest, about a 1 year old Terrier/Weiner mix plays rowdy with the 88# Airdale, both have a blast.

Appreciate the info. I've always kinda wanted an Airedale for a pet and hunting dog but I've heard they could be a little aggressive.
What you say about yours doesn't sound a lot different than my mountain cur.

If my Airedale sees it, she will surely chase it up a tree. That is good enough for me! If she sees it fall, she will retrieve it. If not, she "hunts dead" very well for a 9 1/2 month old pup. I think she would take to it wonderfully!

We brought Piper into our home four years ago and she’s been a menace to the local suburban squirrel population for much of that time. She’s a Tennessee Treeing Brindle, which is a smaller Cur breed. Treeing squirrels comes naturally to her: Watching her stalk, point, and then chase and tree them is pretty amazing. With a bit of training I’d love to take her on some serious hunts.

Only if it barks when treed.

I had a black and white "Holstein" cat that had squirrel hunting down to an art form. He would saunter casually toward the ground squirrel until it broke. Many squirrels will run 4 or 5 feet up the backside of the tree and peek around the opposite side

he would, with impeccable timing, etc.make a flying leap and just pluck them off the tree trunk when they did so.

Very impressive!

Then he ate tinsel off the Christmas tree. The end.

Hank the pudelpointer has been treeing squirrels in the back yard the past year at my new house. Over the last few months he's even started barking at them, but doesn't follow them through the tree tops well. I've taken him on a few hunts in the past, but on those he was just retrieving the squirrels I knocked down. Which he did splendidly. I do plan on getting him out later in the year for them. If just to make them bark at us! laugh
