  • Welcome

    Serving the greater Portland-Vancouver area of Oregon and Washington, the Columbia River Cairn Terrier Club was formed in 2004 as an affiliated club of the Cairn Terrier Club of America. In 2008 the CRCTC was recognized and licensed by the  AKC . 

    Our members are busy and so are our dogs! From conformation shows to companion events, from competition obedience to activities designed for pure fun, the members and friends of the Columbia River Cairn Terrier club are  active and welcoming. We invite you to share your life with Cairn Terriers as a part of our Cairn community. 

    Sign up for our mailing list. Attend our events. Enjoy our photos. Read our articles. Like us on Facebook. Join the club and become a member

    Whatever you do, please join us in celebrating the Cairn Terrier as an important part of our lives.
