Cesky Terrier


The Cesky Terrier dog breed, originally from the Czech Republic, descended from the Scottish Terrier and Sealyham Terrier. The Cesky Terrier was bred to hunt vermin, but with its loving personality, moderate exercise needs, and small size, it also makes a great companion dog. Although they are purebred dogs, you can find them in the care of shelters and rescues. Remember to adopt. Don’t go shopping if you want to take a dog home. These little dogs are very affectionate and playful with their humans. Their small size and moderate exercise needs also make them well suited to apartment living. They even adapt well to novice pet parents and learn training quite easily. Although they enjoy cuddling on the couch, they can also compete in various dog sports and keep up with energetic family members.


The result of a cross between a Scottish Terrier and a Sealyham Terrier – with the aim of creating a dog that could chase vermin without getting stuck in their burrows – the Cesky (pronounced chess-key) was created in 1948 in what was then Czechoslovakia. Smaller than most terriers, the Cesky needs moderate amounts of exercise. And, unlike many terriers, he has the advantage of having a soft coat that can be clipped with a clippers, rather than having to be shorn by hand. Affectionate and devoted, he is also active enough to compete in ground dog, agility, obedience, and tracking trials. The Cesky is also a successful therapy dog. It gets along well with children and other pets, especially if it has been raised with them.
