Get to know the Cesky Terrier
All you need to know about the breed
Fearless and feisty define the Cesky Terrier, a breed who is prized for their stamina as well as their top-drawer demeanour. They are a cross between the Scottish Terrier and the Sealyham Terrier, so a spirited dog for sure. The Cesky Terrier is more docile than other terrier breeds though, which makes for smoother sailing with family and other animal friends.
They are a terrier though so expect a certain amount of stubbornness and a high amount of drive. Bred as sport dogs, the Cesky Terrier breed may not tolerate small animals well - a trait that’s hard to shake - so be sure to train your Cesky Terrier from a young age to play nice. They are known as earthdogs, bred with a compact, elongated body to burrow into the earth after their charges.
Add their smarts and strength - and absence of aggression - and you’ve got one great dog. Their little-known status makes the Cesky Terrier hard to find outside of their native country: The breed is a beloved in their central European homeland, named the national dog of the Czech Republic.
The Cesky Terrier is extremely affectionate with their family including children, once they are trained around them. The breed uses their deep bark when stepping into their watchdog role, too, protecting their family above all if they sense strangeness afoot.
