How do you trim a Cairn terrier?

Use a stripping knife and your fingers to remove the long hairs from the coat and thin out the hair on the neck. Strip off any extra hair around the feet, and use scissors to trim the hair between the foot pads and toes. Trim the hair all the way around the foot.

How smart are Cairn terriers?

Cairn terriers are considered intelligent, loyal family pets that adapt to most environments. They are true terriers, however, and consequently extremely active dogs. Some may be prone to excessive barking and others can be diggers. This is not a dog for someone who wants a quiet lap dog.

Do cairn terriers shed a lot?

Cairn Terriers shed very little, but always should be hand-stripped. Using scissors or shears can ruin the dog's rugged outer coat after one grooming. Hand-stripping involves pulling the old dead hair out by the roots.

Is Toto a boy?
