Cesky Terriers


The Cesky Terrier, also known as the Bohemian Terrier, is a breed of dog that was bred into existence due to human intervention. They are not a very common breed in the United States, but they are greatly appreciated and well-known in their home continent, including Germany and even Scandinavia.


The Cesky Terriers actually do pretty well in an indoor environment. They aren't as rowdy as their fellow terrier brothers and sisters, but they will require a little bit of normal exercise to remain healthy. They really enjoy going for long walks with their owners, so if you walk a lot, why not take this pup along?


One thing that the Cesky Terrier may experience concerning his health is something known as Scottie Cramp. Much as the name implies, a Scottie Cramp is the involuntary tightening of the muscles. This is really the only abnormal thing that may plague the pup, as his immune system withstands other illnesses fairly well.


Cesky Terrier dogs have a short and kind of stocky looking body. They've got shaggy hair that gets so long you can barely see their feet. They may look like they would have trouble moving around, but these dogs are actually quite fast and graceful. They have little trouble maneuvering through their fur.


Due to their super long fur, the Cesky Terrier requires a regular trimming of their coat. You will also want to comb through their fur at least two times every week to prevent it from becoming too tangled up. Pay special attention to the eyes, as the fur can grow long and bothersome over them.


Though they are terriers, the Cesky Terrier breed is much less aggressive than most other terrier type dogs. They do well with all age groups, and they are not ones to lash out for no reason. They may be wary of strangers, but they are not vicious enough to attack. This breed is not recommended as a guard dog.


If you are trying to train an old Cesky Terrier, then good luck. These dogs grow to be more stubborn with age, so if you don't start young, it's extremely difficult to get them to learn later on in life. Take them as puppies and train them with firmness and patience.
