Cairn Terrier Breed Maintenance
The coat of the Cairn Terrier is quite distinctive and has a shaggy natural look. This thick coat requires work to take care of because without regular care, it can become matted and tangled. Start the grooming routine when your dog is young, getting them used to being brushed several times a week. Always be gentle with the soft undercoat. If your Terrier is trained as a young dog to be groomed, they will enjoy the attention and will love the special time with their human. Once a month give your dog a bath and brush the coat while it dries. The beauty of this coat is that it doesn’t shed much at all, which is ideal for house care. Occasionally, the Cairn Terrier will need the hair trimmed around the eyes and ears. Clean their teeth daily to avoid dental disease. All that remains to be done is to clip the nails regularly and your little Terrier will be dressed to impress.
