Cairnwich Terrier Breed Maintenance
Your Cairnwich Terrier is a minimal shedder and will require only weekly brushing to maintain his coat. Hair stripping will keep his coat more wiry but many breeders and owners prefer to brush the coats to save time and keep him clean. His coat will likely need to be trimmed every few months and bathing or shampooing should only be done when necessary. Because the Cairnwich Terrier is a minimal shedder, he is considered to be hypoallergenic. This will be especially important if you have a family member who suffers from asthma or other breathing problems. As with many canine breeds and hybrids, keeping up with regular teeth cleaning and dental examinations are important to prevent periodontal disease and tooth loss. Periodic eye examinations and ear checkups and cleaning are also considered part of the moderate routine maintenance of this hybrid.
