Jagdterrier aka Jagd Terrorist

Dynamite does indeed come in a small package, as does the Jagd Terrier.
The German Jagdterrier (Pronounced “Yack-terrier”) was developed over eighty years ago in Germany by crossing the original old English Fox Terrier and the Black and Tan Hunting Terrier.
These crossings, with years of selective and intensive breeding, have produced the modern German Jagdterrier, a dog bred and used exclusively for hunting.

Jagdterriers, like many of the finest hunting dogs, are
European dogs bred and brought over from Europe. The better dogs have many working titles in their backgrounds with titles including International fox, badger, boar champions.

Jagdterriers see a variety of game, as they should and must be hunted weekly! Some refer to them by another name: psychos.
They are used for ground/stump hole dogs for raccoons and opossums, as well as in brush piles/old home sites for foxes, coons, and the occasional bobcat, bay dogs for black bear and wild boar, and tracking dogs.

They have a natural retrieving desire, and a love for water to fetch ducks.
They are not pets, but GAME terriers, and should hunted extensively throughout the year. They are exclusively for hunting, and are too much for anyone looking at a pet.
No matter the terrain, temperatures, or game one is after, Jagd terriers are an excellent choice.
Remember, these are versatile dogs, meant for a variety of game and tasks. They only exist, TO Hunt!

Lets Review.

Seen Enough Yet? Want More?
For Comparison Sake, This and EVERY VDD German Bred Drahthaar, Find, Close and Dispatch a vermin/badger, what a hard hunt dog Should do..Or it wont be bred per rigorous VDD breeding restrictions.


Closers or Cowards? 4 on 1 and Coyote gives more than he gets.
Were I looking for a Serious Hunting dog, Id look elsewhere.
See February archives of Drahthaars, Jadgs & Dogos-Hard Hunters.
Frauds are now being Exposed…

This is a 3 legged, trapped Bobcat and an adult Airedale from a Very Respected ‘Hunting’ Kennel in the USA Unwilling to engage and close on a 3 legged vermin, much smaller in size.
For this reason among others, the Breed is a Failure and its Reputation vastly overrated by the Frauds.

More standing around barking….3 on 1.
Grit? lol
The cur/pit cross shows more, and thats saying alot…

Better Call for Reinforcements.
Please Lend this Airedale owner a Jagd or Drahthaar to pull some fur.

Airedale wont engage even when offered a neck from a nearly dead coyote.
Better Call for backup ie the Drahthaar or Jagd to Put teeth on fur.

Badgers are Serious Vermin and can injure much larger dogs-A Lurcher with European badger wounds.

Another great working breed, a tough as nails Patterdale Terrier, Most are closers and game on badger and fox and even larger game like hogs and coyotes (Not wise to use them alone unless there is backup, or they will be killed by coyotes).

In researching his Kennel Online, I found some interesting feedback:

‘I’ve had Two Airedales from Top Hunting lines, and they were both Chicken-shits.’
-Mike Berger

‘I had one Airedale from Coyotegods and the one I have now is from Highcountry. They both Tuck-tail and Run from coyote’s, and they aint decoying.’ -Mike Berger, Owner

    Insane Jagd Terriers in a Hog Bay contests, DQ for Catching and Contact, 1st time encounter,
    Notice the Serious Grit from these little dogs….

  2. Ak says:

    From Daily Terrier Dose Website
    The airedale is almost pure otterhound underneath it all, and is a terrier in appearance only do to tremendous amounts of clipping and breeding to make it look more and more like a welsh terrier.
    Go look at an old Airedale picture (it is not a very old breed) and you will see it is just an odd looking otterhound that has been tidied up. A hound is not a terrier, not does the Airedale fit within the terrier form or function or mindset mold.

    Adding the name “terrier” to its name does not change the reality, any more than calling me “Sue” would make me a woman. For the record, the pit bull is not the only “terrier” that has been misnamed.
    ‘In this particular case, even the word “terrier” does not tell you very much, as a pit bull is not a terrier by any definition (it is too large to go ground and it does not even look like a terrier). The pit bull is a molosser breed, pure and simple.

      How has a “Pit Bull Terrier” been misnamed?

    • jay says:

      Sorry, first of all I forgot to say what a good, interesting blog/site. A credit to your choice of sport! Keep the blogs flowing.

    • bharford says:

      This post from you tells me how stupid you are.
      Pits were never bred to go to ground.
      Too honest to fight a wounded animal? Do you know how stupid this sounds?
      A hunting dogs job is to find and dispatch humanely vermin. Jagds, Drahthaars, Pits, Dogos all do this, airedales do not.

      • D says:

        Airedales we ground dogs, they also did badger baiting back in the day. and pit a ‘true Airedale’ not some dipshit any bloodline of today Airedale, against those well bred jagd dogs, which I am sure r great hunting dogs, I’m not trying to hate on them, & the Airedale would smoke it. Read the context bro. Read up on the history of the breed before u go knocking em down. Doesn’t sound like u know much

      • bharford says:

        No medium size dog was ever used as a ground dog against hare, fox, badger etc, because they are too large TO access the den, including the Airedale!
        Thats what DEN terriers were and are used for!
        Yes, Airedales were tried at badger baiting, and they failed miserably, that is the point of this blog, to bring it to light. 14 dales were tried, all failed.
        They were not ‘game’ and did more barking than biting.
        And a Jagd terrier is a small den terrier about 20#, no one in their right mind expects it to defeat a 80# airedale in a fight, but for 4 legged vermin, the Airedale is a failure. Last warning, 1 more stupid comment and youre blocked. Any more nonsense from you and youre blocked.

  6. Jens Hepper says:

    Very interesting page – especially due to the fact, that some people over here in Germany mix Airedales into Jagdterrier to produce a more “docile” hunting dog – the Heideterrier (and then bring in some Staffordshire Bullterrier for the gameness). Besides: do not forget the Weimaraner. Here in Germany we still breed the real hunting dog for foresters and gamekeepers. My own bitch went down into a drain pipe just her own size and brought out an European badger – not counting the wounded boars she catches while we do blood trails.

    • gjonah says:

      Thank you, but not many.
      I think theyd be much better off crossing Drahthaars, stichelhaars or pudelpointers into such a cross.
      I surmise that the goal is for the cross to be a ‘terrier’ hence Airedale being used for leg and size for the cross to the Jagd. The Jagds over the top drive balances out the poor ability of the Dale.
      But in reality, Airedales are not used for hunting in Europe or Germany, but for sport purposes like SchH, and the breed isnt as watered down for this purpose as in America.

      • Jens Hepper says:

        For this purpose a purebred pointer would be sufficient. Especially a Drahthaar. The breeders still want a terrier for boar hunting. As for the Heideterrier: they wanted a more easy going dog that does not attack anybody on sight and does not enter any burrow it encounters – even if the only reason for this is the dog’s size. And some lines are just too aggressive.

  7. bharford says:

    The photos speak for themselves.
    Youre welcome to post any photos or videos of your dogs doing anything noteable.
    No Airedale owners have done so, as their dogs, like yours, are failures. A recreated breed that offers nothing to the sporting dog community. But you keep dog groomers employed.

    Far as the SS comment, you sound like a Joo puppet.
    I guess Germany not have a right to defend itself from Jewish Communism advancing from the East? Our own General Patton believed we should Rearm Germany and invade Russia, stating we fought the wrong country in WW2.
    Thanks for your irrational comment, however.

  8. Joseph Penzenstadler says:

    Best pics i have ever seen of working dogs , fantastic !. I am looking to produce a bobcat dog for hunting in maine . I plan on working them first on house cats . I like the german hunt terrier but i am looking for a
    pedigree that has proven track record. The dog will be trained to retrive wounded game also.

    Re: airedale x jagterrier cross?

    by desertdog » Tue Dec 10, 2013 9:35 pm

    I’ve had 2 Airedales from working lines and they were completely worthless. And especially the one from the guy with the website in CA. A chickenshit, inbred cripple that is possibly the dumbest dog I’ve ever owned. And I thought horse traders were crooks..

  10. bharford says:

    Jagd Terrier doing what they do best, closing on fur in this case, it has a badger in a head hold after digging it out.
