History of the breed

the   Czech terrier   has for ancestors the Sealyham Terrier and the Scottish Terrier . It is, in fact, from litters from a male of the first mentioned breed and a female from the second that the Czech Terrier was developed. The objective was then to obtain a variety of burrows for fox and badger hunting . The breeding of the breed began in the late 1940s with a man named Frantisek Horák from Klánovice, established in the present capital of the Czech Republic, Prague. 10 years later, Czech Terriers are presented for the first time at a dog show.

Ease of grooming

the   Czech terrier   sheds very little hair, but it requires specific grooming so that the appearance of its coat conforms to breed standards during dog shows and competitions. For the rest, its maintenance remains basic .

For dogs intended for display, the eyebrows, beard and hair on the lower limbs and under the chest should not be shortened, but that on the upper neck, shoulders and back should be kept short (1 to 1 , 5 cm). The hair on the sides of the trunk, tail, cheeks, lower neck, elbows, thighs, legs and base of the tail should also be short. Apart from this specific grooming, the dog only asks for one brushing every week .

Its hair, ears, eyes and pads should be examined after each outing in the wild to detect and remove any debris or external parasites. His teeth need to be brushed frequently to remove tartar build-up and the proliferation of bacteria. Finally, if they do not wear out naturally, its claws need to be cut. If you are new to this, it is recommended that you seek advice from a veterinarian or groomer.
