Origin story Cesky terrier
The young breed was bred artificially in 1948. The founder is cynologist, Frantisek Horak. He is a breeder of Scottish terriers, which were still too big-boned to climb into the holes of small animals. Gorak set a goal to breed a small light dog suitable for burrow hunting. The progenitors of the Cesky Terrier were the Scottish Terrier and the Sealyham Terrier, and the blood of the Dandle Dinmont Terrier was also added.
After 10 years, Gorak at the exhibition introduced the Bohemian terriers as funny, charming, efficient, hardy, friendly, light, and thin. 4 years later, in 1963, they were recognized by the International Film Festival, however, the breed was called the Cesky Terrier to emphasize the country of origin. A few years later, breeders from America became interested in animals.
Description Cesky terrier
A dog of an elongated, rectangular format, short, strong paws (the front legs are more powerful than the hind legs), and small triangular hanging ears. Strong jaws and not small teeth still a hunter! The nose is black, regardless of color. The tail is set low and carried down; when the dog is active it rises and becomes a saber. The coat is long, wavy, and silky, with a dense soft undercoat. The color is fully formed by the age of three. According to the standard, Cesky Terrier comes in two types: gray, gray-black, and coffee-brown with sand. White collar and tail tip allowed.
Character Cesky terrier
These are pets devoted to their owners, with an accommodating disposition, which is unique among the terrier brotherhood. The dog will find a common language with children, the elderly, and even other animals. But, of course, some training is required to complete the last point. And they are also vigilant watchmen: in case of any, in their opinion, suspicious situation, they will warn the owners with a ringing bark.
The main care is hair care. In order for the pet not to look like a mop head, the dog should be cut contact the groomers or learn this business yourself. Terriers are shaped with a skirt and a beard, the body is cut short, and sometimes a funny tassel is left on the tail. The skirt and beard are combed regularly with a long-toothed comb. The haircut is updated at least once every three months. They bathe a pet as they become dirty-but because of the short paws, the skirt and stomach get dirty quickly. As an option in bad weather, dress up in a raincoat.
Conditions of detention
Terriers can be kept both in an apartment and in a country house. Dogs are smart, and quickly learn all the intricacies of life side by side with the owner. Well, it’s up to the owner himself to decide whether the dog can sleep on the couch or strictly in his own lounger. In any case, the pet needs to be provided with a full range and the ability to run and play.
The breed is not particularly expensive, because it is not yet fashionable, but there are very few kennels in Russia that breed Cesky Terrier. You can buy a puppy for 200-500 euros, but you will either have to queue for a dog in advance and wait for it to be born and grow up or contact foreign kennels.
