Cairn Terriers

Great news a new litter of  Measki Cairns 

 Bibby & Fergus are proud to announce the safe arrival of their litter on Friday 29th March. 4 girls and 1 boy. Bibby will be 3 in the summer this is her first litter and she has taken to motherhood really well!  I will be starting a new file on the gallery page to watch the pups as they grow. Thank you to everyone who has contacted me as usual all the pups have their forever families from my waiting list.

Brief background information of the breed:

Taken from 'Our Friend the Cairn 1932' One great advantage the Cairn possesses is that he is extraordinarily adaptable

Whether he is kept in a flat in town or on a large estate in the country he seems to thrive equally well. He can maintain his health and spirits on the minimum of exercise or go through a long day's country sport without flagging....That is still true today.


  Your Puppy:

I am a Kennel Club Assured Breeder (Click on Kennel club logo at the top for more info)  Our puppies will have been born & reared in our home, as part of the family, and will have been raised to the highest possible standards with love & care. I rarely have more than one litter per year so we all look forward to their arrival with great excitement  They will have been bred for temperament as a top priority, with beauty and breed standard a close second. Pups will be used to all household noises and be well socialised by the time they are ready to leave us at 8wks, prospective owners will be welcome to view the pups from 4wks. I take lots of photos as they grow and will email owners so everyone can enjoy watching  their progress. Our new owners will be provided with a full puppy pack, 5 generation pedigree, KC 5wk free insurance, toys, food & their  blanket. All pups will have had a full vet check and been regularly wormed, they will have had their first injection prior to leaving at 8wks. I am also a qualifed 'Peddy-Mark' mirco-chipper so your  pup will be micro chipped before leaving. Please ask for more details.

Temperament - Referred to as "big dog trapped in a small dog's body" Cairn Terriers are adventurous, intelligent, strong, loyal, tough, and full of fun. They are certainly not a delicate lapdog. Like most terriers, they love to dig after real or imagined prey. They are protective of their families, and will defend their territory with devotion, but they are also people-oriented and are friendly with everyone they meet. They generally do well with other dogs.

They've been called "the best little pal in the world." Cairns  are best  exercised on a lead, as it is virtually  impossible to train a Cairn to resist the urge to chase squirrels, rabbits, etc. Walking is excellent exercise for Cairns and their owners. A brisk walk daily, on lead, is ideal. Although small in size at nine to ten inches at the shoulder with weight ranging from thirteen to fourteen pounds. Cairn Terriers are gentle and adapt well to children and are very suitable family dogs, but will not tolerate mistreatment. They are not usually problem barkers, but will bark if bored or lonely.
