The Cesky Terrier was originally bred to be ratters and mousers. Today they are companion dogs.
Unlike some other terrier breeds, the Cesky has a relatively short history.
They were created in the Czech Republic in 1949 when someone crossed a Scottish terrier with a Sealyham terrier.
The result was a small (weighing 6-10 kilos), but robust breed with strong hunting instincts.
The Cesky Terrier is a great companion dog. They are affectionate and loyal to their owners. They are small and adaptive dogs, suitable for a range of lifestyles. Whether it is in a small city apartment, or on a farm in the countryside.
Thanks to their docility and cooperative nature, they can also be suitable for inexperienced owners.
These dogs are full of energy and need an outlet to thrive. An excellent way to activate them is through dog sports. A Cesky terrier can participate in agility, obedience, and rally obedience, amongst others.
They are social dogs who prefer to be with their owners at all times. When on hikes, they usually stay close to their owner.
A Cesky Terrier usually gets along with other animals. The breed is also known to be friendly towards children. Socialization should be done from an early age. That way the dog is more receivable to newcomers.
Cesky terriers do not shed. You do not need to trim them either.
However, the coat can tangle, so some brushing will be necessary. A couple of times a week is fine. Bathe when needed.
Cesky Terriers have good health
If you are considering acquiring a Cesky Terrier, you need to be prepared to have the dog in your life for many years.
It is not uncommon for them to live for 12-15 years.
