The roots of the Cesky Terrier can be traced as far back as 1948. A self-taught breeder by the name of František Horák crossed a Scottish Terrier and a Sealyham Terrier. He was attempting to develop a dog specifically designed for hunting game and waterfowl in the forests of Bohemia. It was not until fall of communism that the popularity of the Cesky Terrier took on a worldwide appeal. This terrier first entered competition within the United Kingdom in 1989.
