It will be deer hunting season here soon and that means our area of the country will be inundated with people dressed in orange and non-stop gun fire from daylight to dark. We live in a rural area that is a hot spot for deer hunters, and to someone who doesn't hunt but who does a lot of outdoor exercising and dog walking it can be quite frightening.
Last year I bought Molly and Jack their own little day-glow orange vests from the coolest dog supply resource, Ugly Dog Hunting Company. (Funny name!) It was tough finding a dog hunting vests small enough to fit my little Cairns, but they work okay. Darn if they aren't just the cutest little four-legged furballs! Wouldn't you agree?

Do love the thought of dressing your Cairn Terrier in Halloween costumes? I think it is a blast. I recently found a halloween costume source that has decent prices and a great selection. And they let me in on the hottest, most popular dog halloween costumes. I guess they like Cairn Terriers too. Well ... who doesn't? :)Posted on October 07, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
I use stainless steel dog bowls for water. I also use stainless steel dog bowls with removable, washable liners for their dog food. It might surprise you to know that I purchased several sets of the removable liner stainless steel dog bowls from one of my favorite online dog supply stores. Let me tell you why.Posted on May 30, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
If you have a fenced in area for your Cairn Terrier, then you will need to remove the dog waste on a regular basis. You should keep you Cairn Terrier's outside play area separate from his elimination area if possible. Generally the dog is a clean species and the Cairn Terrier is no different. Dogs don't like playing or stepping in poop or urine. Makes sense, right? You wouldn't either. ;)Posted on May 25, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
I buy nearly all of my pet supplies from online stores. We live in the country and the closest pet shop is 30 minutes away and it is very small shop with a limited selection. Walmart which has a limited selection of pet supplies is also 30 minutes away for me.Posted on May 02, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
There is one thing that every dog owner needs who is trying to house train a puppy and that is Nature's Miracle. I tried a number of stain and odor removers for puppy accidents and nothing can compare to Nature's Miracle. I bought my first bottle in the local pet shop. I was amazed at how well it worked once I understood that part of Molly's housebreaking problem was not really her fault. It was my oversight.Posted on May 02, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
The Kidco Doorway Gate is a temporary pressure mounted gate and was yet another of the best investments we made in dog supplies. Our doorway from our carpeted living room into the dining room which has vinyl flooring is very wide. A standard baby gate or dog gate wasn't wide enough - not close. We didn't want the gate to be permanently mounted but we did want it to be sturdy enough to handle a puppy.Posted on May 01, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
We started both of our Cairn Terriers, Molly and Jack, with plastic pet carriers as their crates. It was pretty simple to get them accustomed to the crate. By establishing regular nap routines and night bedtime routines for a couple weeks, they understood that the pet carrier was "their special place" in our home.Posted on May 01, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
When our Cairn Terriers, Molly and Jack, were both puppies, we lined their Midwest Life Stages Crates with old rags and towels. When we felt like they had graduated from housebreaking (one month without any accidents in the house), we bought them CratewearÂ® which is a 3-piece Crate Bed Set.Posted on May 01, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
This might sound a bit odd, but both Jack and Molly, our lovable Cairn Terriers, have what we call their "momma". Basically momma it is a black Snoozy Sleeper, that we bought from the local pet shop.Posted on April 30, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
Of all the dog supplies I've purchased for Molly and Jack, the Pet Yard plastic panels has to be the best investment ever.
I wish I had taken photos of every place I've had these hinged, snap apart plastic panels in my house, outside, garage, basement and wherever I take the Cairns for an overnighter.Posted on April 30, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
I have tried many kinds of flea and tick control products but nothing compares to FrontlineÂ®. The no name brands either didn't work or made the Cairns coat very greasy.Posted on April 30, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
Everyone knows that pet related wall calendars are fun. I buy one every year with photos of only Cairn Terriers on it. But I buy a calendar for several reasons and not just because I love the Cairn Terrier breed.Posted on April 30, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
If you have a hot bodied little Cairn Terrier like my Happy Jack, your dog will love the Canine Cooler pad. I bought this pad several years ago for my older dog (now deceased) when he was having terrible arthritis problems.Posted on April 30, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
