The Cairn Terrier is a small breed of dog that has its origins in the Scottish Highlands. The breed was originally used for hunting small game such as rabbits and rodents, and they were also sometimes used as ratters on ships. In the 19th century, the Cairn Terrier was brought to England, where they quickly became a popular pet.

Today, the Cairn Terrier is still a popular breed, and they are known for being intelligent, active, and loyal. The Cairn Terrier is also relatively easy to train, making them a great choice for families with children.

Cairn Terrier Puppy Health Considerations

Though generally very happy and long-lived — with an average lifespan of around 12-16 years — our Cairn Terriers for sale are not without their unique health concerns. Like every breed of dog, there are a few conditions you should be aware of before you consider purchasing one of our Cairn puppies for sale. Understanding the risks allows you to know the signs and prevent small health concerns from turning into big ones.

Cairn Terrier puppies are at a somewhat elevated risk for developing the following conditions:

  • Allergies
  • Joint Problems
  • Weight Gain

Allergies are a common issue for Cairn Terriers, as they are for many other breeds of dog. The most common type of allergy is food allergy, which can cause symptoms such as itching, rashes, and digestive problems. Cairn Terriers can also be allergic to environmental allergens such as pollen or dust mites. If your dog is showing signs of an allergy, it is important to take them to the vet for testing and treatment.

Due to their small size and lively personality, Cairn Terriers are prone to injuries such as dislocated kneecaps and elbow dysplasia. These problems can be painful and limit your dog’s mobility, so it is important to have them checked by a vet if you suspect they may have a joint problem.

Because they are small dogs, Cairn Terriers only need a small amount of food to maintain a healthy weight. However, many owners tend to overfeed their dogs, resulting in obesity. Obesity can lead to serious health problems such as diabetes and joint problems. To prevent weight gain, it is important to feed your Cairn Terrier the right amount of food and provide them with plenty of exercise.

With some basic knowledge of the breed’s health concerns, you can be sure to give your Cairn the best possible chance at a long and healthy life. Finding a Cairn Terrier puppy for sale from a reputable breeder can also dramatically — although, not eliminate — the risk of your dog developing some of these conditions. At Keystone Puppies, we work exclusively with experienced breeders who are committed to producing healthy & happy pups.

Cairn Puppies Coat & Coat Care

Cairn Terriers have thick coats that needs regular grooming. The coat is double-layered, with a dense, shaggy outer coat and a soft, downy undercoat. The outer coat is weather-resistant and helps to protect the dog from dirt and debris. The undercoat is softer and insulates the dog against cold weather.

Cairns are typically born with a darker coat that lightens as they age. Many owners choose to clip or trim the coat to reduce shedding and make grooming easier. However, it is important to note that this can damage the coat and strip it of its natural oils. As such, it should only be done by a professional groomer.

Regular brushing is the best way to care for a Cairn Terrier’s coat. This helps to remove knots and tangles, and it distributes the natural oils throughout the coat. Brushing also helps to reduce shedding.
