Jesse, i dont know how many miles a day, but we will gather a few pastures that are around 1,000 acres a day with cows scattered. all over it. after getting them all gathered and keep them bayed while driving them to the lot we go back and look for stragglers. its alot more miles than we ride on horses and we can wear a horse out pretty quick. if i were guessing on the miles in a day that the dogs run and gather, i would have to guess around 20 miles?? i have no clue.lol

most are BMC. have some that are mixed with catahoula.

I am running a bluetick/jagd cross male right now that just turned 7 mo. old and saw his 6th or 7th trapped coyotes last night and can see the switch turning on in him. He was a different dog last night.

Airedales are like any other breed. Good ones and bad ones. Most folks don't or won't cull the ones they should.


Brent we have 3 of them and love them

Well my airhead terrorist is basically a useless family pet, but she just doesn't get worked. I had her spayed. So I guess that counts as a cull.

She does sound the alarm as is a good watchdog for the house.

Take care.



Couldnt have said it better. Scott, have you ever tried a Jagd/Ariedale cross? [/quote]

Devin-No, but seems like the natural way to go to me. I think for the folks that need/want a bigger dog than that the AD x Drauthaur might make some folks happy. I have tried AD x Terriers, AD x Bulldogs, AD x Hounds, AD x Curs, AD x Cowdogs, AD x Stags, some pure AD and different crosses of those listed...The AD x Bulldogs were my favorites.

Take care.

Never been around terriers of any kind, till Devin talked me into a cross of his Jagd,Airdale. Been pretty happy with it thus far, but it is still a baby. This little dog is nuts, but he will go a 20 mile day will me beside a horse, fight cattle, and make it back to the rig everytime day after day.As for curs getting wore out gathering a "few 1000 acre pastures", cut them back on there feed, and use them more often.I know for a fact that I use mine daylight to dark, and never had them were out.Maybe the pitbull that Tony breeds into them takes out some of the dogs wind. Not being a dick, just saying that bred right a cur will wear out a horse, and 12 to 15 miles a day is common for us. not four times a year, I'm talking about 45 days in a row.I trade out horses but use the same dogs day after day, if a dog gets hurt, they get a break, I take a diff one,to fill the spot.Fed right, and shaped up, most dogs can keep up with horses on the gather.Just my thoughts.

Here is a funny picture..it is of my Dad's Airdale he got one after a very severe heart attack..maybe it effected his brain as well???? I grew up with old stories about his stepdad's airdale's and crosses..My old man's stepdad kept the wolf away during the 20-30's running coyotes and wolves in the alberta prairies( so the story goes anyway) he has told the story a thousand times.....crossed the airdales on greyhounds.

anyway this is dad's fat airdale under a cougar tree...she usually was to lazy to come along but was feeling energetic that day...

Devin...Dad has always said they were egyption greyhound crossed on airedale....to me, cause I have seen egyption greyhounds, it can't be that...the ones I seen are a toy breed... George was an old gamekeeper I expect they really were greyhound crossed on airedale. A lurcher.

Duane, reread my post please. We have a whole set of dogs to work cattle. 16 dogs as of now. I never said they get tired.

My decoy dog does not work cattle. He is for coyotes only. If we hunt hogs, we take our hog dogs(9 dogs), if we are working cattle, we take our cow dogs(16 dogs). If I go coyote hunting, I take Nuts.

Our cattle dogs get used most everyday. We have 3,000 momma cows, 150 bulls, and buy and sell stockers as well. We also have 20+ head of horses in our remuda. There is always work for the dogs. Only way one has quit is if it dies or gets hurt. If it just plain quits, it gets some lead treatment. Havent had to do too many of those latley though.

When we are working cattle which is twice a year and then we gather once a year to preg check, it is from before daylight til after dark everyday for a month at a time. You work on a ranch, you know how it is. Always something to be done.

I know alot of people would just use the same dogs for different stuff. But we dont want our cattle dogs to go from gathering cattle to running a hog track and vice versa. with as much timber we have you would never know until it was too late.

and another thing is that my personal dogs bought out of my personal money and the dogs bought out of the ranch's money are different. as for my dogs, i dont want just any of the hands loading them up and taking off. they know which dogs are mine and which dogs they can take. i dont want my high dollar aussie killed by a cow when im not there or the same with one of my hog dogs. if they see a set of hogs they know which dogs to come get and go after them.

and since i am the one who hunts the coyotes on the ranch, Nuts is off limits to everyone but my wife if she goes while im not there. haha

Thought I might resurrect this thread. I was offered a 10 month old Airedale pup. He is [beeep] on wheels tore up the guys sprinkler system 1 hour after he spend 8 hours and 10 blisters fixing it from the first time he tore it up. Dog is obviously bored/untrained. Did some interwebz searching for a little info but nothing beats first hand knowledge. I would like to hear from some guys that have or had them and what they expected and what they got. I plan on using him as a general hunting companion. Retreive birds find wounded game. If they can handle the Arizona heat well? I don't need a dog great at anything just good at some. I have trained stubborn/driven breeds before so that will not be a problem. No bad advise here.
