Temperament - Referred to as "big dog trapped in a small dog's body" Cairn Terriers are adventurous, intelligent, strong, loyal, tough, and full of fun. They are certainly not a delicate lapdog. Like most terriers, they love to dig after real or imagined prey. They are protective of their families, and will defend their territory with devotion, but they are also people-oriented and are friendly with everyone they meet. They generally do well with other dogs. More Info Click Here.
They've been called "the best little pal in the world." Cairns are best exercised on a lead, as it is virtually impossible to train a Cairn to resist the urge to chase squirrels, rabbits, etc. Walking is excellent exercise for Cairns and their owners. A brisk walk daily, on lead, is ideal. Although small in size at nine to ten inches at the shoulder with weight ranging from thirteen to fourteen pounds. Cairn Terriers are gentle and adapt well to children and are very suitable family dogs, but will not tolerate mistreatment. They are not usually problem barkers, but will bark if bored or lonely
