Adopting an adult Airedale Terrier

I am adopting an adult (3 year old) female Airedale Terrier. I would like to know what I can do to make her feel at home and happy with us. I have never before adopted an adult dog, only puppies, and I`m a bit nervous. What can I expect (her behaviour ect.)? I would appreciate any advice.

Dear Kay<br><br>Lets start with water, food a hot milo before going to bed and classical music playing in the background. If you want to calm your nerves before she arrives have a whiskey, but only one. You dont want to spoil the moment by letting your tongue slip if you have more than one drink.<br><br>Kay, you'll be fine. If you've had puppies before you'll be fine. If she has any serious behavioural problems seek the advice of a dog trainer. It may be worth taking her anyway so you can see how she reacts with other dogs.<br><br>Vivaldi usually works best.<br>
