This versatile breed excels at a number of tasks. The Cesky Terrier is often a winner at terrier den trials and loves playful, sporty activities. As well, the Cesky is a devoted family member and makes an excellent watchdog. This friendly pooch is good with children and happy to be around family and strangers alike. The well-mannered, enthusiastic Cesky is also a pleasure to train. This dog strives to please and will not disappoint.


In 1949, Czechoslovakian geneticist Frantisek Horak created the Cesky Terrier. He desired a mild-tempered terrier that still excelled at hunting, and bred together a number of terrier breeds, including the Sealyham, Scottish Terrier and Dandie Dinmont in order to create the ideal dog. While his narrow head and chest made it easier for the Cesky to enter burrows, his friendly, well-mannered attitude gained him a reputation as a good family dog. The Cesky Terrier was shown for the first time in 1959. Since then, he has been utilized as a hunting dog, guard dog, show dog, and beloved family companion.
