Overview
This breed is the smallest of the Terriers. They were originally bred in the Scottish Highlands for their working ability, not their appearance. The Cairn Terrier is built sturdy and strong, but not built heavily.
Character
The Cairn Terrier is intelligent, tenacious, and courageous. They are lively and bossy, very clever and independent. The Cairn Terrier is quick to give chase and quick to bark at every new sight and sound. This breed is intense and active.
Temperament
This breed is spirited and restless, always seeking an adventure. They are friendly and affectionate, bold and fearless. The Cairn Terrier loves to play and adores stimulation. They are loyal and alert and have a mischievous nature. The Cairn Terrier has a special affinity for children over the age of six.
Care
The Cairn Terrier must be brushed several times a week. The hair around the eyes and ears must be kept trimmed. Special attention must be given to not over feed, as they tend to gain weight quite easily. The Cairn Terrier, while the smallest of the Terriers, also has the most health issues of the Terriers. They are especially allergic to fleas. The Cairn Terrier is not suited for living outdoors and much prefers to be inside with their family.
Coat
The Cairn Terrier is double coated with a coarse outer coat and soft, short furry undercoat. Their coat has a shaggy appearance that does not require trimming and is weather resistant. They shed little to no hair.
Training
The Cairn Terrier is inquisitive and quick to learn. They are sensitive, so they require firm, not harsh, training and discipline. They like to learn tricks, and thrive in obedience training. Without training and attention, the Cairn Terrier will become bored and destructive.
Activity
The Cairn Terrier is purely high energy. They benefit from daily brisk walks, but are more suited for a fenced yard with room to run. This breed is not suited for apartment or condo living. They require supervision when they are outside as their natural instinct to hunt and dig can lead them into danger. The Cairn Terrier has excellent ball playing talents and would happily do so for hours.
