Husky101 Posted March 17 Share Posted March 17 Hi Me and my wife are considering a cairn and want to hear from those who know them best to learn what their like as a breed as well as to live with. We currently own 2 huskies and I had a German shepherd when I met my wife and my wife has told me that it's her dream to own a terrier again , before we met she had a Westie when she was a girl and as we're both getting on in age she wants to get another terrier while we're still fit enough but due to the amount of issues her Westie had with her skin she doesn't want another Westie and so we went off to crufts and while I was taken with Scottish terriers my wife wasn't and we're looking into 2 different terriers we both like. She wants a terrier that is similar to westies in that they still have enough terrier in them but are a bit less intense in their terrierness and we found that cairns suit this ( the other terrier were looking at is the soft coated wheaten terrier) My wife is definitely siding more towards the cairn. What are they like to live with? Is their any same sex aggression issues? Our male husky is still intact as he's a show dog and our girl is spayed but she doesn't like living with other girls she prefers to live with boys, our boy is great with other boys. So we'd be wanting to get a male cairn. We were told at crufts their not as noisy or barky as some terriers unless you allow it or their bored. We were told that a well bred cairn who is socialized well can be great with other dogs and that their happy little dogs. We were also told that they can be easy to train once you learn the cairn way. What are they like? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
