Thank you all for the input and suggestions.I found Mr.McCafferty online and ordered one of his capos[tuner included!] .I also stocked up on strings.It's hard to find suitable gauges and lengths for the dulcimer in Canada,in my experience.
That's great to hear. You will not be disappointed. Those with the tuner look like a great idea (I got mine before he came out with those). Glad we could be of some help to you.
