Cesky Terrier Description
Though the body is compact, it is not large. These dogs have excessive amounts of speed and agility. Their coats are wavy and should either be grayish-blue, tan, gray, or white in color. Coffee or yellow-colored markings may be present as well. Cesky Terrier puppies will be born black in color, and the natural coat colors may not be present until the dog is two years old.
The eyes will either be yellow or brown, and the color of the eyes is dependent on the coat. The ears should have the shape of triangles, and while the head should belong, it should not be too broad.
The Cesky Terrier is a relatively new breed that was first developed during the 1960s. This dog was bred to hunt small pests such as foxes and rats, and its small size allows it to chase these pests into their dens.

The Cesky Terrier is a playful breed that enjoys being around children. They are courageous and reliable, and their intelligence makes them easy to train. Owners will want to make sure these dogs are socialized while they are puppies. This will allow it to behave well around people and other animals once it becomes an adult. While these dogs are easy to train, they can sometimes be strong-willed. This breed is excellent for people who love to travel.
Cesky Terriers are healthy dogs that do not get a large number of diseases. The only condition that is specific to this breed is called Scottie Cramp, and while it may affect their movement, it is not a disease that will kill them. The Cesky Terrier has a maximum life expectancy of 15 years.
These dogs are athletic and will enjoy running in wide-open areas. Owners will want to make sure they are taken for extended walks on a consistent basis. Even though they are small in size, they are great for people who enjoy jogging. These dogs do not need extensive amounts of exercise and can live fine in apartments.
Special Grooming Needs
The Cesky Terrier has a fine coat that owners will want to trim on a consistent basis. The hair on the stomach, face, and legs should be allowed to grow long. The coat will need to be trimmed at least four times a year, and show dog should be groomed more frequently than this.
