Cesky Terrier |Czech Republic|

Cesky Terrier |Czech Republic|

The Cesky Terrier, or Czech Terrier as it is also known, was developed in the mid-twentieth century by geneticist and dog breeder Frantisek Horak. He had bred Scottish and Sealyham Terriers, which he used for hunting, but was convinced that a better hunting dog could be achieved by crossbreeding the two. He began breeding for the Cesky in 1949, keeping rigorous notes, and by 1959 the new dog was breeding to standard. Horak developed the Cesky specifically to hunt fox, rabbit, pheasant, duck, and wild boar, wanting a dog that would track game into holes or burrows and also hunt on open terrain. Cesky Terriers are skilled hunters and combine this with a pleasant temperament. They are generally good with children, but can be aggressive with other dogs unless carefully introduced. They are bright, active, and engaging and also serve well as watchdogs. Unlike most other terriers, they are trimmed with clippers instead of being “stripped.”
