Background The Cesky Terrier is the result of crossing the Scottish Terrier and the Sealyham Terrier. Therefore he must be a compromise between the two breeds and not just considered a coloured Sealyham.
Average Lifespan Remember you are taking on a dog for its lifetime. Cesky can live to 10-15 years of age.
Breed Personality/Characteristics/Temperament Cesky Terriers do not have typical "terrier" temperament. They are non-aggressive, pleasant, cheerful, loyal and easy to train. They can be very active or "couch potatoes". They may be reserved with strangers. Early socialisation with puppies strongly recommended.
Compatibility with other pets When introduced at an early age, good. Care should be taken with adult dogs of the same sex.
Care Requirements A secure backyard is a MUST with this breed. Cesky are at their best as members of the family with lots of love and human contact. The soft silky coats on the Cesky is non-shedding (they do not moult) so they require clipping at least 4 times a year. Regular grooming is needed to keep the coat tangle free. Brushing at least once a week is recommended.
Ideal Owner/s The breed is ideal for families or single people who would like a devoted companion with a fairly calm and loving nature that enjoys a fair amount of exercise. Cesky love playing with children, but do not enjoy rough play. Supervision with young children, as with any dog, is strongly recommended.
