About the Author

Andrea Berman was born and raised in Chelsea, Massachusetts, and still lives nearby in Ipswitch. A lifelong animal lover, Andrea’s life changed when she met Murphy, her first Airedale Terrier. Murphy was sweet, but young and stubborn. He was big on attitude but small on etiquette. Help was needed. Hiring and working diligently alongside a dog obedience trainer gave Andrea a new perspective, and later, she was invited to apprentice. Soon, her new career as a professional dog trainer had begun.

With a lifelong passion for journalism, Andrea also simultaneously authored a newspaper column, writing in a humorous, no-holds-barred, shoot-from-the-hip style. She now blends her dog training experience with her journalistic skills in The Complete Guide to Airedale Terriers - a straightforward, common-sense, sometimes comical, but always practical, book designed to help any new owner successfully raise their Airedale from puppy to old age.
