CESKY TERRIER

History

Frantisek Horak, a Czech breeder, developed Cesky Terrier to get a versatile breed that can be used for hunting and show-dog qualities. It originated in the year 1950 by crossing Sealyham Terrier and Scottish Terrier.

Temperament and Personality

The breed is low on energy but its stamina and enthusiasm remain very high. They have a relaxed and calm nature and are also very loyal as well as inclined toward their family members. They are good with children and other pets if brought up properly. Being a highly alert and courageous dog, they bark loudly immediately if they see any intruder in their territory. Their hunting instinct makes them excellent hunting dogs and excellent chasers.

Exercise

The Ceskies are well suited for an apartment life, but they need an adequate amount of physical activities to remain fit both mentally and physically. Allow them to run in a yard or play games with them like fetching, casing, etc. Take them for regular jogging or walking sessions but never leave them alone for an extended period.

Grooming

The maintenance is moderate and cost-effective. Brush its coat two times a week on a regular basis and trim its hair every 4- to 6 weeks to keep it in a good condition. However, avoid trimming near their stomach, face, and legs. Additionally, trim its nails and brush its teeth frequently to avoid tooth decay.

Health Problems

The most common issue that the breed tends to inherit is Scotty Cramp that affects its movement. Like other designer breeds, it is prone to hip dysplasia, patellar luxation, cardiac problems, and thyroid.

Training

The independent and stubborn behavior might make the training sessions a little challenging. They require firm and consistent trainer with positive techniques like rewards and treats. Try to control its chasing instinct but don’t be aggressive. Teach them to socialize from their puppy-hood and try to keep the sessions shorter and exciting.

Feeding

Provide the pet with ¾ to 1½ of high-quality dry dog food split into at least two meals every day. It is essential to include nutritional food in their diet to maintain its energy level.
