Teaching Your Cairn to Play Fetch!

"Fetch!" is a great game - one you can play inside and out - that will help your Cairn burn off lots of energy and keep both of you happy!

Is your Cairn restless or anxious when you're busy elsewhere?  Many Cairns find themselves in Rescue, shelters, or worse, simply because they have too much energy and not enough structured activity to burn it all off.  This excellent video by Zak George demonstrates how to teach your Cairn to play fetch, using positive training methods.  There is a spot of advertising by his sponsor, but it does not detract from this really helpful video.  Obviously, the dog is not a Cairn, but everything Zak demonstrates applies perfectly to a Rescued Cairn.  Note his admonitions to go slowly, take small steps which you can build on, and set your dog up for success!

Training your Cairn can change your life!
