Overview
The Cairnoodle, also known as the Cairn-Poo, is created by the crossing of two breeds: Cairn Terrier and Poodle. They are commonly referred to as "designer dogs", and are not as popular as many of the other crosses.
Character
The ideal Cairnoodle is muscular, sturdy, and compact. They exhibit a hardy appearance, broad head, and large, dark eyes. Cairnoodle's are agile and high-spirited.

Does your Cairnoodle bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
Friendly, affectionate, and loyal, the Cairnoodle may possess the boldness of a Terrier, the sensitivity of a Poodle, or both. They require an inordinate amount of attention and do not do well if ignored or left alone for extended periods of time. They will become destructive if bored or lonely. They do well with children, dogs, and non-canine pets they have been raised with. The Cairnoodle is alert, suspicious of strangers, and will bark to announce visitors or out of the ordinary sounds.
Care
The coat of the Cairnoodle must be brushed several times a week to prevent matting and tangling. Bathing should be done on a regular basis using a mild shampoo. Dental hygiene is important to prevent early tooth loss. They are prone to such health issues as PRA, luxating patella, heart problems, portal shunt, and CMO.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The coat of the Cairnoodle may be very curly or slightly wavy. It is typically wispy and short all over the body. The coat is longer and more profuse on the face.
Training
The Cairnoodle typically exhibits independence but is willing to please. They may be difficult to housetrain. The crate training method works best. The Cairnoodle is adept at learning tricks. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, reward, and consistency. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Cairnoodle puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Cairnoodle is suited for city and apartment living provided they are sufficiently exercised and mentally stimulated. They must have a variety of safe toys to keep them occupied indoors. Cairnoodle's thrive on family interaction, off-lead play time in a securely fenced yard, performing tricks, and securely leashed walks. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

We are considering getting a Cairnoodle puppy. I was hoping someone could tell me if their prey drive is lessened in this crossbreed or not?

Both the Carin Terrier and the Poodle have a mild to high prey drive. So mixing the two breeds together will most likely do nothing to lessen the prey drive. Now every dog is different, so one pup may have a lower prey drive then another. Good socialization and training will help control a prey drive.

I have a Cairn Poodle and while she loves chasing squirrels and rabbits she is very cowardly towards animals larger than her. They are great animals, very loving, and crave attention.

How long can a Cairnoodle spend alone? I'm a single guy and I'm interested in getting a Cairnoodle but I work and I'm out of the house from 6:30 am - 5 pm. Is a Cairnoodle able to spend this much time alone?

That is much too long for ANY dog to spend along. Unless you are able to go back home at lunch time to take the dog out to pee/for a walk, do not get a dog. If you can hire a dog walker to take the dog out to pee/for a walk in the afternoon, that will work as well.

I have had my Cairnpoo for 10 yrs. She and my other dog stay alone for about 7 to 8 hrs and do great.

My Cairn Poo spent most work hours in the kennel. This breed loves to sleep many hours a day so it was never a big problem being away.

My Cairnpoo his home inside from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. She is excellent. She does not make any messes. She gets lots of outdoor time when I am home. They are a wonderful breed. She is truly my best friend.

I am thinking of getting a Cairnoodle. What I need to know is if they still have their hunting instinct. I live on a farm and need a dog who is adept at hunting wolf packs, rats, etc. Has anyone seen this trait alive and well in their Cairnoodle?

I have had a Cairnoodle for about two weeks. So far, in the backyard she is interested in rooting and sniffing the leaf piles, sniffing out in the bushes and around trees. She is like this on walks. She loves clumps of plants to dive into with her nose.
She has never been in an environment where she could fully explore her senses until now. But, she seems to have them coming alive more and more.
My sister has a Silky and I had a Yorkie as a kid. So far, taking into consideration her background of little to no dog stimulation until now, her instincts seem to scream terrier. But, it will take a while until all that is in full force with her. She is very sturdy and needs long walks now.

Are you seriously going to try to get a 15-pound dog to hunt down a wolf pack? Other than how ridiculous that is, yes they still have their hunting instinct. Ours used to run around the couple of acres we had hunted all of the pack rats and keeping them out of the machinery.

Do Cairnoodle's grow a lot of hair?

I have a Cairnoodle and her hair is not that long. I would say that it is more mid-length but we do have to keep up with her grooming because she mattes really bad if we don't. It's nice too because she doesn't shed.

It says above Cairnoodles are really good watch dogs, will this dog be barking non-stop?

I have a two-year-old Cairnoodle and find that "watchdog" is an apt description. She lays in our picture window and keeps an eye on the yard. She will bark when she sees someone she doesn't know or if she sees a cat. The key to a dog that barks is training. It's her job to tell us when she sees a stranger. I just taught her good job, but now no bark! No bark is the word I use to have her stop.
