Coat: Not as the coat that with typical terrier breeds, the coat of the Cesky is wavy and slightly silky in texture. It looks like that the Cesky Terrier has a dual length coat because its hair is relatively long to cover the whole body. The hair on its beard and eyebrows is not clipped but is naturally left long. If left grow and untrimmed, the hair is usually long enough to reach the floor and covers the legs, looking as a skirt for the lovely dog.



History: Due to its relatively new breed nature, Cesky Terrier???s existence was credited to Frantisek Horak, a Czeh breeder. By crossing the two terriers of Scottish Terriers and the Sealyham Terriers, Horak intended to make a drop eared, short legged, light hunting terrier which is tiny enough to go underground as well as fit into burrows. At present, the Cesky Terrier can still serve as rats hunters, but more often it is used as a companion pet or family pet. Early 1980's Breeders felt that the breed was not meeting the original requirement and then another careful breeding program was carried out later to improve the overall appearance of the breed. This breed was recognized in 1963 by the FCI.

Health Issues: Generally speaking, the Cesky Terrier is very healthy. However, like other breeds, the Cesky Terrier is sensitive to some problems such as Scottie Cramp Syndrome, also called Wobbly Scottie, which causes the dog to walk inflexible with an awkward movement.

Temperament: The main temperament of the Cesky Terrier can be described as patient, sporty, playful, brave, loyal, obedient, courageous, sweet and joyful yet calm. Socialization is one important procedure for them while they are a puppy and it is better to ask them to meet with various people and diversified animals under good circumstances in various situations.



Activity: Generally speaking, Cesky Terrier???s need for exercise is easy to be met because they need only minimal exercises. However, one caution for its little exercise is that they can easily gain weight due to their slower metabolism.
