Mikey: Lakeland Terrier Vs Airedale Terrier Vs Giant Schnauzer
which one do you prefer? I love Giant Schnauzers but i heard they can be very assertive and borderline aggressive and never to leave them alone with children...too many warnings for me. Lakeland terriers and Airedales look the same it just depends on what size i prefer. Anyone have any experience with these dogs? any info would help thanks, I've done all the research and i know the "basics" but nothing beats peoples past experiences. thanks

We have had 2 Airedales in our club and one was trained to a SchH3 - FH-2 and the other got hit by a car just after she completed her BH.
I have dog sat these dogs while the owners went to Europe and they have very pleasant personalities and are people dogs... they "love" to be around people and are super sociable and super trainable.
You would be happy with an Airedale... check out the people on NAWATA - I helped to set up their website

We have an Airedale. He's only 5 months old, but he's the coolest dog. My wife has a yorkie and I wanted a bigger dog. And let me tell you, he's going to be huge!!
He is amazing with kids and other dogs. He has been a breeze to train. He already knows sit, stand, up, lay down, shake, fetch, come, etc. He's just a great happy-go-lucky pup!
Answer by Rick Ven
Giants are not aggressive. Like any dog bred for guarding or fighting they can be if not trained properly but the same is said for the Airedale.
Airedales are probably more aggressive than Giants. If you like the Giant go for it. With training as one should do with any dog you will have a great family dog and guardian.
Answer by me
I really don't know anything good or bad about any of these three breeds.Going by looks and looks alone, I have to say the Giant Schnauzer.They are the most beautiful dog I have ever seen. Absolutely gorgeous.
Answer by Gehorchen sie dem Schnauzer
Ya you would not have any problem with a Giant Schnauzer. But are concerned maybe go with a Standard.
Answer by Don
Mmy Wife and I have an airedale (Stanley). I've owned many different breeds of dogs and by far Stanley is the smartest of all, He's almost 2yrs old, very happy and energetic, the breed needs lots of exercise. beware airedales will eat any and everything ie,, plants, sticks. socks ,shirts, plastic, car wax, rocks,shoes, ect... anything that we leave out in the back yard is fair game as far as Stanley is concerned, grape vine and dwarf lemon tree got chewed up pretty bad. all said, i wouldn't trade him for any other.
