It depends on what kind of grooming you want to do on the dog.

Some people just have their Cairns clipped, with the hair left on the legs and belly, others just want the coat stripped.

I had a Cairn terrior for 16 years. I just had him trimmed. I adored him, but he had the tendency to look horribly scruffy if not groomed constantly. I didn't have him trimmed in winter, poor little guy was always so cold!

Sorry this is probably late, but yes, quite a bit like the way you would clip (or strip) a westie or scottie.

That reminds me..I was watching animal cops on animal planet (sometimes I hate that show)...and there was a weaton terrier getting clipped because it was abandoned by its owners...the poor thing had such matted hair that it was in terrible pain (this will happen if you don't groom your dog)...I know you haven't let it get to that stage but just thought I'd bring that up. It's sad how some people just don't give a rat's azz about their dogs or how to properly take care of them..

ANYWHO...hope your dog looks purdeee when you're done groomin it

That does make it an emergency! Have you done some searches on the web? Maybe some show breeders' sites will have some good photos that will show you what he needs to look like.

Oh btw, ask them if they want him clipped or not.. If they want him clipped it's probably really easy, just look at some of the cairns on the web that are obviously clipped, and copy the one you think looks the best. (I groomed a Cairn last year, but all they wanted was to have her clipped, not stripped, so it was easy)
