I live in a small trailer in a senior only park. People frequently walk by the house. I am gone 2 days a week but still walk daily. I want a dog for my grandchildren to play with ages 6 and 13. But more important to me is my need for a doggy friend to keep me company. The cairn looks like a nice breed and since I walk daily I think his energy would be nice. Do you agree or do I need to look for a different breed?

A cairn terrier is great with any children that are different ages. Plus cairns love to go for walks. Also they can live in any place

I bought Tigger in 2001. He was a registered Cairn, brindle. LOVELY personality. High energy. I suffer from migraines and when he was younger he'd lay for hours at my head. He also was a facility dog for traumatic brain injured people and they absolutely loved him. I just lost him to a stroke last night. I would buy another in a heart beat. Little dog with a lion heart. Rest in peace my little friend.

Cairns are high energy and demand lots of playtime.I recommend a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
