The Cairn Terrier is an intelligent and curious breed, but only until you yell at your pet. Impulsive “Scots” perceive any pressure as an infringement of personal rights, to which they react violently. Moreover, the offended core shows real miracles of stubbornness and disobedience, and it becomes impossible to explain elementary truths to him.
Another characteristic feature of the breed is the duality of behavior. Each individual expresses this quality in different ways. Someone, in the absence of the owners, is lying on sofas and ottomans, but upon hearing the sound of a key turning in the doorway, they immediately transform into an exemplary pet, peacefully dozing at the doorstep. Someone slowly harasses the cat, and then, when the owner appears, pretends to see a meowing creature for the first time.
