The Cairn Terrier can best be described as a very affectionate and loving partner in crime that comes with a mind of its own.
This breed is the perfect companion dog that can adjust to family living or a single household if given a lot of attention and time with their humans.
Cairn Terriers are smart and are fast learners - of good habits as well as the not so good ones. But with a consistent and loving upbringing, as well as a clear understanding of who is in charge, this little dog will thrive as a human companion.
Training should be started early and be regular to make sure your adorable Cairn Terrier puppy doesn’t become a nuisance in your house and the neighbourhood.
Cairn Terriers are very confident dogs and it can easily be “my way or no way” with this breed. Their combination of curiosity and confidence can mean that they are sometimes more interested in pleasing themselves than you. But once they are trained and family rules established, Cairn Terriers can be very obedient and a delight to live with.
This breed is not recommended for novice dog owners, and they require lots of training throughout their lifetime.
