In terms of grooming needs, Cairn Terriers are generally low-maintenance. Weekly brushing and combing—as well as occasional hand-stripping to retain the coat's texture—will keep your pup looking their finest.
A modest amount of daily movement should satisfy the exercise needs of your Cairn Terrier. These dogs prefer activities that involve their owners—such as long walks, short runs, or play sessions. Cairn Terriers also seem to enjoy dog sports such as agility, tracking, flyball, and obedience.
A Cairn Terrier puppy or dog can bring a lot of joy. Maintaining a Cairn Terrier in good health can be expensive. Get savings, deals and cash back at vets and pet stores when you pay for pet care with the Sincere debit card. Personalized just for dog parents.
