History In 1955, a German Shepherd Dog was crossed with a Carpathian Wolf in what was then the Czecho-Slovak Socialist Republic (CSSR). This biological experiment was done to prove that crossing a dog with a wolf can be done and that the offspring of the two can be reared as human companions. Both male and female wolves were used for this experiment. Most of the offspring were genetically fit for continued breeding.
In 1965, a strategy was devised for the development of this breed. The aim was to mix the desirable qualities of the German Shepherd Dog with the usable qualities of the Carpathian Wolf. The result was called the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog. In 1982, this breed became recognized by the general committee of the breeder's associations of the CSSR as a national breed.
Appearance Although the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog is a relatively new breed, it attracts much attention because of its resemblance to the wolf. These dogs have a level back, a rectangular build, and a short loin. Their large chest is barrel-shaped, flat, and broad. These dogs have substantially tucked up muscular bellies, and they have straight forelimbs that are narrow-set. They also have strong limbs that are well-muscled and have long calves. Their teeth come in a complete set and meet in a scissors bite. The ears of these dogs are triangular in shape and stand upright. Czechoslovakian Wolfdogs also have a high-set tail, that reaches the tarsuses when freely lowered. Their obliquely-set eyes are amber in colour. The coat of these dogs is close-fitting, straight, long, and very dense.
Colours The coat of these dogs ranges from yellow-gray to silver-gray. These dogs also have a light mask around their face.
Temperament Czechoslovakian Wolfdogs develop very strong relationships with their whole human family. These dogs can learn to live with other household pets, although it can be difficult for these dogs to deal with strange animals. They are quick, active, courageous, and lively. These dogs should not be shy because shyness is considered a disqualifying fault. The Czechoslovakian Wolfdog is also temperamental and playful. With their excellent sensing ability, they are great at following trails. They can also work during nighttime.
Weight Male dogs of this breed have a height of at least 26 inches and weigh at least 54 pounds. Females, on the other hand, are at least 24 inches tall and weigh at least 44 pounds.
Problems These dogs are generally healthy and hardy dogs, although they may be susceptible to getting afflicted with hip dysplasia.
Living Conditions Czechoslovakian Wolfdogs can be kept inside apartments as long as they are provided with enough exercise. It's still best, though, for owners to provide these dogs with at least a large yard where they can run around and do some physical activities.
Requirements These dogs need much exercise and should be provided with adequate space, so they can do some physical activities. They also need to be taken out for long, brisk walks every day.
Training Requirements Czechoslovakian Wolfdogs learn easily. They need, however, to find motivation for training. Owners should find ways to motivate these dogs so that they won't get tired of doing repetitive tasks. It's also important for these dogs to be socialized at a young age, so they won’t exhibit aggressive behavior toward other animals.
Life Expectancy Dogs of this breed live for around 12 to 16 years.
Grooming These dogs are odorless and clean, which is why they are easy to groom and care for. The coat of these dogs sheds dirt readily, which makes bathing unnecessary. These dogs should just be dry shampooed on an occasional basis.
