Do cairn terrier dogs shed?
Cairn terriers shed very little, but should always 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.
This new growth helps protect the dog from water and dirt.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
