Hey guys. About the Cairn Terrier... is it a barker? Does it even bark at all? Because Scruffy doesn't bark, no matter what. We even rang the doorbell and he just eagerly sits near the door waiting for the person to walk in. And then there's my beagle who was debarked attempting to howl away. Does anyone know Cairn Terrier's barking habits?? thanks.
I used to have a Cairn Terrier and she didn't bark hardly at all. Never at people in house or at the door and she loved children. I have a West Highland Terrier now and she barks at everything. I think because she gets bored sometimes.
Cairn Terriers were actually bred to bark. They were specifically bred to bark when they came across vermin that they were hunting. However, generally the males are more of a barker than others. Some just are more laid back and are not great barkers. One of mine will only bark when she senses danger-or a cat! I wouldn't worry unless you hear funny noises when he barks, otherwise he may not just feel intimidated. Lucky You!
