Personality and Traits:This is a very lively little dog with an independent streak. He is intelligent and easy to train if you are as consistent as your dog is tenacious. He likes having a job to do - so you might try teaching him to sniff out his toys and bring them back to the toy box, for example.
He will make a good watchdog, possessing inherent traits of loyalty and fearlessness.
He has the strong terrier drive to chase and dig, so make sure your property is secure around the boundaries to close off any possible escape routes. If you value your flower beds, keep a close eye on them too!
Activity Level:Cairn dogs are very active inside the home. They are the type of dog that likes to know what's going on and will follow you around to make sure they don't miss anything!
Space Needs:Can do well in either apartment or house. A small yard is nice to have for days when walks are not possible, and at other times to play freely and burn off some energy.
Children:Generally considered very good with children, the Cairn Terrier dog loves to play games and has an instinct to chase. As with any dog play activities involving children, it is always best to have adult supervision, no matter what the dog's reputation.
Elderly:A naturally loyal and enjoyable companion dog for the elderly, bearing in mind that grooming and regular activity is needed.
