  • Any Cairn Terrier Owners?

    My early Christmas present from my darling hubby is a 4 month Cairn
    puppy that I dubbed "Mr. Cheezle." He is a ball of hair and just so
    utterly cute!I believe he is a wheaten coat colored Cairn,
    and his ears hasn't stood up yet.

    I've never owned a Cairn Terrier before, is there any
    tutorials out there that shows how-to or advice on
    hand stripping?

    Anyways, here are some pictures of my new baby, if you have
    a Cairn or have any Cairn groom pics, feel free to share, would
    love to see em!

            Yep, I have 4. I got my first Cairn 20 years ago and I've had a total of 8 now. I love, love, love them. They are so smart and spunky.

            I attended a class given by Scott Wasserman AKA Mr. Terrier and he showed how to handstrip his own Cairn. That was the best instruction I have found so far.

            I have a DVD and a couple books, but it really didn't make sense until I saw Scott in action.

              Welcome to the Cairn Family!!

              Unfortunately, right now there isn't much in the way of tutorials for the Cairn.

              The most important advice I can give you is on the head... start plucking and keep plucking. The head is the hardest part to keep a good rotation of coat. At least once a week... put the dog up on the table and pull a little bit... evenly all around the head!
