Cairn Terrier Basic Facts by:Alex de la Cruz
There are many beautiful breeds of dogs to choose from, but not everyone of them may be compatible with your lifestyle. People choosing a breed with undesired traits find themselves stuck in a situation similar to that one would experience in hell. And that's one of the reasons why you see many doggies wandering around the streets, eating out of trash cans, or confined in the dog pound. If you've seen the Cairn Terrier, and decide to keep one as a pet, it's important that you do some research to see if this pooch is right for you. I will now state some basic need-to-knows about this breed, which could help you out in making your choice.
The Cairn Terrier is a small dog that doesn't shed that much fur, which makes it okay for it to sleep inside the house. However, it packs a lot of energy, which makes it restless if it's kept indoors all day. Being restless will lead to the development of some behavioral problems, which you of course woudn't want. To fix that, it's important that you give it some outdoor activity time. It loves taking walks, jogging, running, and even going up hill. Owners of this breed find themselves playing with it for hours, because it obviously enjoys doing so. Another thing that some dogs of this breed fancies is wandering.
They can go around for hours, and sometimes get lost. So having sturdy fences put up around your house would be great for stopping it from drifting off. Knowing the fact that it demands constant physical exercise, this pet won't be suitable for those living in apartments. As I've said earlier, it'd become restless from being locked up all day, which would then make it do more bad than good. Cairn Terriers are very affectionate - they love hanging around their human owners. This is great for people with passive incomes or are jobless; this type doesn't have much to do.
This dog needs plenty of time and attention, and bonding with the kids of the family. So if you can't give it the time and attention it needs because you're tied up with work, this isn't the pet for you. Cairn Terriers are fairly intelligent and learn tricks fast. This makes training much easier, but before getting there you've got to deal with its behavioral problems first. There are some that may or may not occur - as a pup pay attention to any signs of unwanted behavior and deal with it immediately. At this age, ingraining rules and basic commands into their heads won't be so hard.
>From there anything plausible could be very possible, that is if you set your mind to it. These are some of the basic qualities that a Cairn Terrier may possess, which should be kept in mind before making up your mind. But for a more thorough description of this breeds' temperament and other attributes, I urge you to research more about this dog. If you already own one, and on the verge of giving up, don't. Whatever problems you're having with it, it's most likely due to the fact that you've been using the wrong methods. It's never too late to turn things around for the better.
