More details about the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog

Czechoslovakian Wolfdog: Origins and history

In 1955, Karel Hartl, considered to be the breed’s ‘father’, crossed the German Shepherd and Carpathian she-wolf as an experiment. After several attempts, he managed to create a fixed, hybrid breed, which then started being recreated from 1965 onwards. In 1982, after several trials and tribulations, the wolfdog was official recognised as a national breed by Czechoslovakian breeders associations. Along with the Saarloos wolfdog, it is the only other wolfdog breed officially recognised by the FCI. The latter recognised the breed officially in 1999.

FCI classification of the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog

  • Group 1 - Sheepdogs and Cattledogs (except Swiss Cattledogs)

  • Section 1 : Sheepdogs

Training a Czechoslovakian Wolfdog

This dog’s particularly independent nature makes him a rather difficult pooch to train, in the sense that if he does not perceive the potential gains to the training sessions, he gets demotivated very quickly. 

In fact, it is this kind of resistance that constitutes one of the owners’ main problems with this dog, as the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog tends not to want to repeat the same exercises over and over again. 

You have to find the right source of motivation for this dog in order to be able to rear him in a smart and coherent way. As soon as a trusting relationship and partnership have been established between the master and his dog, the results can be remarkable. 

Having said this, you should not expect an inborn propensity to obedience since, ultimately, the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog will always follow the goals he has set exclusively himself.
