Cesky Terriers  


The Cesky Terrier is a native of Czechoslovakia and was developed by Mr. Frantisik Horak through crossings of Scottish Terriers with Sealyham Terriers.  Mr. Horak was an avid hunter and developed the Cesky Terrier specifically to be hunted in packs in the forests of Bohemia. They are an intelligent and alert breed that has been used to hunt a variety of animals including rabbit, fox, ducks, pheasants, and even larger prey such as wild boar. Cesky Terriers are a national breed of Czechoslovakia and have been featured on postage stamps, on television, in books, and a movie. They make good family pets but their owners must be continually proactive about socializing them as they have a tendency to be reserved around strangers. They need plenty of physical activity and will find their own amusements, likely digging, if not adequately entertained and exercised. Their long, silky, charcoal to platinum colored coats require moderate grooming and monthly clippings.
