Kansas Cairn Terrier

Cairn Terriers originated in Scotland where they were bred to get rid of vermin near cairn (stacked stone monuments). The most famous Cairn Terrier in the world is probably Toto from The Wizard of Oz, who single-handedly made this breed popular.

People in Kansas love Cairn Terriers for their friendly, playful, and affectionate personalities. These dogs are highly trainable and easy to care for, and given their small but sturdy frame, they are particularly well suited to Kansas families and individuals who live in urban areas. Cairn Terriers love to perform tricks and play with kids, so they’re perfect for young families too.

However, if you are looking for Cairn Terrier puppies for sale in Kansas, there are some things you should be aware of before bringing one of these cuties home. A Cairn Terrier needs a lot of physical and mental stimulation to avoid boredom. Failure to keep a Cairn Terrier stimulated and active can cause her to get into trouble and engage in destructive behaviors.

Also, despite its small size, the Cairn Terrier has a bold personality and will not be afraid to bark at or even attack much larger dogs. Early training of these dogs is vital to keep in check this breed’s willfulness and stubborn streak. Cairn Terriers have a high prey drive so they need to be leashed or in a fenced yard at all times. Lastly, if you have a yard in your Kansas home, you should know that Cairn Terriers like to dig.

Taking care of a Cairn Terrier in Kansas is pretty much common sense and applies to all dogs – watch his diet, make sure he’s getting plenty of exercise and mental stimulation, brush his teeth and coat regularly, clean his ears weekly, and adhere to the recommended vet exams and vaccinations schedule.
