Welcome to the Cairn Terrier Club of Canada!
Welcome! The Cairn Terrier Club is a nonprofit club whose members are passionate about Cairn Terriers. Our goals are to promote and preserve Cairn Terriers as a distinct breed, true to its historic nature – a fearless, hardy, and intelligent ‘big dog in a small body’. We have members from ‘sea to sea’, as well as internationally. Our Cairns are family members and pets first – but many are also active in a wide range of activities with their owners. From dog shows to many other activities such as earthdog and barn hunt, agility, flyball, therapy dog work and more, Cairn Terriers are versatile working dogs ready to rise to any challenge.
Cairn Terriers are a generally healthy breed, often living well into their mid to late teens. As with any breed, it is important to be aware of specific health conditions of concern to the breed.
