Hi! I am new to this board. I am not yet an airedale owner but am hoping to be one soon! My husband and I met with the breeder today and he said the pups will be ready to go home in February.

We have fallen in love with the breed for many reasons but our only concern is that we have an 8 yr old female toy poodle (ten pounds). We plan on obedience training classes right from the beginning with the Aire but are wondering if anyone has experience with bringing an Aire into a home with an older, smaller dog. I am nervous that the Aire will show aggression to the small dog as it gets bigger and older.

Any feed back would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you!
