Bohemian Shepherd


The Bohemian Sheepdog breed originated in the Czech Republic around the year 1300 in the Chodsko region, hence these dogs were commonly called the ChodskĆ½ pes. At first they were used as guard and herding dogs. Today, they are excellent companion animals that protect and guard their owners. Other names for this dog are Bohemian shepherd, Czech shepherd dog and Chodenhund. Although they are purebred dogs, it is possible to find them in shelters and rescues. Remember to adopt. Do not buy if this is the breed for you. The Bohemian Shepherd is an intelligent breed, always willing to try new activities and very aware of the needs of their humans. This sociable dog thrives in homes with children and families, and requires daily physical and mental stimulation with toys and games to keep it happy. While it may not be the best choice for first time dog owners, these puppies learn very quickly with patience and consistency and make great companions for those who are willing to spend time with them. AniMall24 recommends a good dog bed to give your medium sized Bohemian Shepherd a good night’s sleep. You should also buy a dog toy to burn off your puppy’s high energy.


The color of the fur of the Bohemian Shepherd is black and tan. The tan markings appear over the eyes, around the ears, on the muzzle and on the feet and the bottom. The Bohemian Shepherd has a medium moult, with a more abundant moult each season. They are not considered allergic and require a weekly brushing. Bohemian Shepherds have higher energy needs. Agility training, obedience training or a trip to the dog park will help burn off that energy. Be sure to give your dog at least an hour walk a day. As for training, they need an owner who is patient and firm. These dogs are extremely intelligent and get bored quickly, so training sessions need to be interesting and with lots of positive reinforcement. These dogs do not like to be left alone for long periods of time. They are very social and do best in homes with a backyard to run around in and several people to help care for them. The Bohemian Shepherd is said to get along very well with other dogs, cats, and small pets. The Bohemian Shepherd is a great choice for families with children. They adore children and will love and protect the children in your home.


The Bohemian Shepherd is an ancient breed that originated in the territory of the Czech Republic in the early 19th century. They were bred as guard dogs to guard families in times of war and evolved into a more versatile breed, used as a herding dog. Although this breed is rare, the dogs quickly gained popularity in their region. There was no conscious breeding program for these dogs, whose numbers began to dwindle, until about 1984, when their popularity grew and the breed began to increase in demand. Because these dogs could perform so many different tasks and were always willing to work, they appealed to both families and single owners who needed a dog for a task. This breed was finally recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 2019, and the Bohemian Shepherd was placed in the Foundation Service Group.
