Most Airedales have a wiry coat but some have a soft coat. The soft coat tends to tangle and matt much more easily especially if the dog gets wet. Wiry coated Airedales may be reasonably groomed every 6 weeks with home maintenance and under normal circumstances but soft-coated Airedales are best groomed every 4 weeks or less.
Maintenance grooming is minimal but increases with soft-coated Airedales. It is recommended you completely brush out your airedale at least on a weekly basis and have full service professional grooming at least every 6 weeks. Check the Airedale's ears for dirt weekly.
Special care should be taken when brushing or combing the airedale terrier to go all the way to the skin, with the proper brush. Some customers will choose a shorter, lower maintenance cut.
If home maintenance is done properly; full service grooming is recommended every 4 weeks, if not professional grooming is recommended at least every 1-2 weeks.
