Following are some website links about Cairn Terriers which we recommend & which you may find useful. All breed clubs listed below have members with long experience in owning, breeding & showing Cairn Terriers who would be willing to offer advice on a range of issues, contactable through these websites.
The Cairn Terrier Club
Founded 1910 this is the oldest Cairn breed club, dedicated to all who love their “best little pal in the world” whether they are breeders, show people or pet owners. This club is based in Scotland but has members world wide.
The Southern Cairn Terrier Club
The second oldest Cairn breed club established in 1914 for Southern England, that aims to appeal to all Cairn owners; exhibitors, breeders or pet owners. The club holds annual open & championship shows.
The Cairn Terrier Association
Another veteran Cairn breed club established in 1926 to encourage novices & attract broad membership. The club holds annual championship & open shows. This club is UK based but also has international members.
The Midland Cairn Terrier Club
An active & well organised breed club holding shows in the English Midland region. This website is regularly updated with information on all Cairn news, show results & upcoming UK events.
The Cairn Terrier Fun Day
Cairn Terrier Fun Day has a purpose to bring pet owners and breeders together; away from shows with the distractions caused by serious competitive events. These events run by volunteers raise funds for CTRF to help many Cairns in need of rescue, & are family fun for all.
Cairn Terrier Talk Forum
A forum for any & all lovers of the breed whether pet owners, breeders or exhibiters, who wish to engage in friendly discussion, or share advice & news on all things Cairn Terrier. CTT is run by experienced Cairn owners who support the CTRF wherever possible.
The Oldies Club
The Oldies Club is a dog rescue charity, run solely by volunteers, that specialises in rescuing and rehoming older dogs aged 7 years plus. The charity prefers to use foster homes for these veteran dogs rather than kenneling. Sometimes Cairns are available via this club.
The Kennel Club
The UKs largest organisation dedicated to the health and welfare of dogs. The Kennel Club was founded in 1873 and is able to offer dog owners an unparalleled source of information, experience and advice on dog welfare, dog health, dog training and dog breeding.
See message below. can we share this very worthwhile petition as far and wide as possible. Thank you ""Hello there, I do hope you can help us make a difference here. My friend Peter Baker, a serving Northumbria police officer has started this campaign in response to the many cases he has dealt with involving animals. This would be a bid to keep adoptions and rehomings and animal sales safer and we are determined to get it to parliament.We have had a fantastic start thanks to help from fellow animal lovers, their groups and associations, but we only have until August to run, and so we are asking for help to try and get it more visible online to as many supporters as possible. Would you be happy to share this very worthwhile petition on your Facebook page please? Feel free to copy and paste the whole message. We'd be so very grateful of the support.""petition.parliament.uk/petitions/573147Thank you 🐾 x ... See MoreSee Less
Bans on keeping animals are hard to enforce as currently no national register exists. This petition argues that a national register on a government website should be created listing all individuals wh...
Tilla was re-homed in December 2020. He wasn’t advertised on this page, as we had someone on our waiting list who was ideal for him and this is their update on him.Tilla is doing really well. We’ve just got back from a lovely walk through local woods...windy here so we thought it a good idea.He is just adorable and we both love him very much. He loves the beach walks and knows all the walks around the village so Jeff lets him choose which way every day.He’s such a good dog - he can be growly at dogs he doesn’t know especially black ones? But he’s getting better all the time.He loves the garden and chases birds even when they’re flying overhead! We’ve got him used to the blackbirds but he won’t tolerate the pheasant that comes in to feed. Trying to stop him barking at any noise...he’s getting there.He loves to run and Jeff runs with him whenever he can, Jo told us his previous owner paid someone to jog with him so that’s probably why.Jeff is absolutely besotted and he sleeps with him every night. He’s definitely Jeffs dog but occasionally he seems to worry I’m being short changed and he trots over and gives me a kiss! We’ve realised he’s incredibly sensitive. We haven’t left him yet...he comes everywhere with us and is no trouble in the car. We consider ourselves very lucky to have him and hope he’ll be happy with us. He sometimes thinks about his previous owner( Monique?) and we know what’s up as he goes off and lays with his head on his paws on his own. He must have adored her.We’re going away in the motor home end of the month for a first trip away...he’s been in it for a look but not away yet. He’ll love being in new places with new walksSorry I’ve gone on a bit - I could talk for ages about him and his ways.I’m attaching a picture of him in the garden hiding behind a tree because he was caught out eating the bird food. ...

Thank you David for posting these lovely memorial paintings you had done of Molly and Albert.It is 9 years ago in April 2012 that David adopted mother and son. Molly was aged 6 and Albert was 3. It was wonderful to find them a home together. They have both gone over the rainbow bridge now sadly. Molly in October 2019 and Albert last November.We had these oil paintings done of our last two cairns, Molly and her son Albert (on the left). An artist called Peter Clayton did them for us and they now take pride of place in our home. The pictures really capture their characters and are a fitting memorial to two wonderful little souls. Still missed so much. Hope you like them. ... See MoreSee Less
