    History & Overview

    The Czech Terrier, or Ceský terrier as it is called in its native country, is the result of crossbreeding between a Sealyham Terrier and a Scottish Terrier. This is a balanced, pleasant and cheerful family companion.


    Easy to train, the Cesky Terrier is somewhat reserved with strangers but never aggressive. The Cesky is a hardy, affectionate and very adaptable dog. Intelligent and sociable, he gets along with other animals and is very loving with children.


    The hair is long, fine but firm, slightly wavy with a silky gloss. The most usual color is blue-gray with in different shade variations; light coffee-brown is rare. Puppies are always born black, and the coat color lightens later, in some cases not until the dogs are two years of age.


    The Czech Terrier is groomed by scissors (clipping). At the forepart of the head, the hair is not clipped, thus forming brows and beard. On the lower parts of the legs, under the chest and belly, the hair is not clipped either. The transition between clipped and unclipped areas should be pleasing for the eye and never abrupt. This terrier does not shed and needs to be trimmed regularly.
