Groom, train, judge.

The first groomer and trainer of your Airedale is you!
Contact the breeder of your Airedale Terrier for assistance with grooming. Usually if you are grooming your pet Airedale you would clipper it. Grooming for Show however, is a much more involved task which involves hand stripping the coat as explained in the linked article.  The main photo above shows an Airedale Terrier being clipped.
