The Cairn Terrier is an energetic, playful and loving breed that was born to hunt. They are quite independent, however, they are devoted to their family. The Cairn Terrier was bred for ratting, and so will have a propensity to dig. They also make good watchdogs, as they will bark when necessary. However, it is not uncommon for the Cairn Terrier to bark simply due to loneliness or boredom. This little breed must be dealt with in firm and consistent manner to avoid development of Small Dog Syndrome. If allow to believe they are in charge, the Cairn Terrier may develop behavioral issues such as stubbornness, guarding, growling, snapping and separation anxiety.
