The Cairn Terrier is a spirited, hardy, restless little dog. This breed is somewhat independent, but friendly. It is a big dog in a small dog's body. This breed is naturally patient with children and very playful. It is alert, loyal, and mischievous. This dog is very curious, fearless and bold. It is highly intelligent, easily trained and likes to do tricks. This breed is sensitive; it needs firm, but not harsh, training and discipline. Without attention and proper training, the Cairn Terrier can become destructive and/or bark excessively. This breed likes to dig searching for vermin; it is not wise to leave it unsupervised in a landscaped yard. It can be a chaser and should not be left off its lead in an unsecured area. Never leave your Cairn Terrier tied out, as it may fight larger dogs to protect its turf, sometimes with tragic consequences. Females tend to be more independent than males and some breeders feel that males are more affectionate. Some of the breed's talents are: hunting, tracking, watchdogging, agility, competitive obedience, and performing tricks, it also excels at Terrier trials. This breed will get enough exercise running around a small yard, but if you live in an apartment, it will need a daily walk or a romp in the park.
