Fresh Food for Airedale Terriers
Airedales are the largest of the terrier breeds, but it’s not just size that earned them the honorific, “King of Terriers.” This is an all-round athlete and get-it-done dog up for just about any activity (Airedales even served, with distinction, in WWI). The beautiful, wiry-coated, black and tan dog embodies all the classic qualities of a terrier—smart, feisty, active, prone to mischief without proper guidance—but the body in question happens to be very large. Airedales can reach 28 inches tall and 75 pounds. Bred to hunt large rodents in their native England, Airedales are exceedingly clever. Humans who devote the time to keeping their Airedale mentally and physically challenged will be rewarded with a most loyal and excellent companion.
A diet of fresh dog food for your Airedale is the best way to support their health and happiness—along vigorous daily exercise, regular vet care, and an active, loving family.
What’s the best dog food for Airedale Terriers?
A diet of fresh dog food for your Airedale terrier contributes to a healthy, active life, and could help stave off some of the ailments common to this breed.
Why fresh is best for your Airedale Terriers
Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Airedale Terriers’s health. Recipes from The Farmer’s Dog are made with fresh, human-grade ingredients, steamed to retain nutrients, and pre-portioned to help maintain weight.Feed Fresh Today
Airedale terriers are prone to joint issues. Maintaining a lean body condition can help. And fresh food from The Farmer’s Dog contains Omega-3 fatty acids, proven to reduce inflammation and improve arthritis. Even if kibble contains these healthy fats, they can go rancid sitting on the shelf for long periods. Rancid fats don’t deliver the intended health benefits, and in fact can contribute to inflammation. Fresh food delivers these powerful nutrients intact to your Airedale.
Dial up dental health (and fresh breath!)
For dogs like Airedale terriers, who may be prone to dental disease, don’t look to a dried pellet to clean teeth. Kibble is an ultra-processed food—it sticks to teeth, contributing to plaque, and it can contain substances that actually fuel inflammation in the tissues of the body, including the mouth. Eating for dental health means eating for overall health. A fresh, whole-food diet promotes a healthier immune system, which helps ward off dental infections—and it doesn’t stick to teeth.
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Airedale's health. It supports optimal muscle growth and maintenance and a strong heart. Another hallmark of a digestible diet is what we call “high quality poops.” Research shows that a digestible, bioavailable diet affects the quality and quantity of your dog’s poop—making it less voluminous, and less stinky, than their poop on a kibble diet!
Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your Airedale terrier's odds of developing a host of diseases like arthritis, diabetes, and even cancer. A fresh-food plan, tailored to your dog’s needs, and delivered in pre-portioned packs, makes weight maintenance easy.
