The Cesky Terrier is a relatively modern breed coming from the Czech Republic, where it is the national dog in May 1989.
The Cesky Terrier was developed by a Czech breeder called Frantisek Horak in 1948. It was created by crossing the Sealyham Terrier and the Scottish Terrier. It was bred specifically to hunt in the challenging terrain of the forests of Bohemia. It is a compact, well-muscled short-legged dog, set low to the ground with a long silky wavy coat and distinctive facial furnishings. The Cesky Terrier is also known as the Bohemian Terrier.
The Cesky Terrier is available in a variety of colours including:
Height bitch - 27 cms
Height dog - 29 cms
Weight bitch - 6-10 kgs
Weight dog - 6-10 kgs
The Cesky Terrier requires around an hour of exercise every day.
A healthy Cesky Terrier should expect to enjoy a lifespan of between 12-15 years.
The Cesky Terrier is still quite rare in the UK, with approximately only around 450 in the country. The breed’s name is pronounced CHESS-KEY, meaning Czech. The breed is intelligent, easy to train and not aggressive to other dogs. It does need plenty of grooming to maintain its shiny, glossy coat
