The Cesky Terrier is a healthy breed overall, and if you work with a reputable breeder, you’ll be able to bring home a happy and healthy puppy.

While a healthy puppy sounds nice, you may run into an occasional problem with your pup. While there are not many major illness or diseases in this breed, there is the concern of Scottie Cramp Syndrome.

Scottie Cramp Syndrome often affects terriers, so your Cesky Terrier is not free and clear. This condition will cause hyperflexion, hyperextension, and spasms in the legs of the dog. The spasms occur when there is not a sufficient production of serotonin in the body.

This is an inherited disease and often only occurs in young puppies and juvenile dogs. The symptoms from this condition usually only last about 10 minutes, but they can happen on and off throughout the day. You will most likely see the first symptoms after your puppy has exercised or has had too much excitement.

In addition to the above condition, you need to make sure that you keep an eye on your Cesky Terrier as they are known to eat everything and anything that they may come into contact with. If your Cesky Terrier eats a foreign body or something poisonous, you will need to make an emergency trip to the vet and it can cause quite the scare.

The Cesky Terrier has a life expectancy of 12 to 15 years.

It is important to note that your Cesky Terrier does need an area to run around in or at minimum, should be taken on walks or to the park. This breed does like to dig a lot and may even dig itself right under your fence and take a stroll through the neighborhood. Make sure that you either watch your pup when outside or have a secure enough fence that they cannot crawl underneath.

This breed is considered easy to train because they are intelligent dogs. Your Cesky Terrier will pick up on your commands and perform to please you. When it comes to training, your puppy will not respond to harsh or aggressive methods, so it is best not to even try.

The Cesky Terrier has moderate grooming needs and will need to be cut regularly to keep his or her coat clean and maintained. In addition to cutting the coat, the beard, facial hair, and eyebrows also need to be trimmed.

You also want to make sure that you clip the hair between the pads of the feet as it can grow quickly. This breed does not shed a lot, which makes it an ideal pet for those with mild allergies.

You should brush your Cesky Terrier’s hair a couple of times per week to remove any tangles and trim his or her nails once per month or as often as needed.


Your Cesky Terrier needs 3/4 cup to 1.5 cups of dry food per day. You need to make sure that you choose a brand of dog food that is ideal for an active puppy and then adjust the type of food over time as your puppy will slow down activity wise.

When choosing a brand of food, make sure you choose one that provides all of the nutrients that your dog needs. You want to avoid dog foods that have by-products or chemicals in them, as they will not serve any nutritional value to your puppy.

The Cesky Terrier likes to eat food and is known to rummage through garbage cans and counter surf. As an owner, you need to make sure that you clear the counters and empty the trash to prevent your puppy from getting a hold of something that he or she should not.
