All About the Cairn Terrier: Description The Cairn Terrier is a hardy, small, solid, and sporty dog, with a rough weather-resistant coat that sheds. The Gaelic word “cairn” means a heap of stones, which is a suitable name for a terrier that goes to ground. This breed is in many ways the classic terrier, exhibiting the same tenacious, sassy, obstinate yet charming personality that is common to this group. He is intelligent, active, and affectionate. He is a long-lived dog and is not susceptible to any major medical problems.
See our Cairn Terrier Care & Training Guide for additional resources.

He also loves an occasional large dog biscuit to chew. 1 teaspoon of cod liver oil taken once a day will keep him in good health. Apartment living is adequate for this small dog as long as he gets enough exercise. The Cairn Terrier is a very energetic dog and an expert of killing rodents. His ideal exercise would be running in the fields or playing a ball game.
