History

The Czechoslovakian Wolfdog has its origin in the crossing experiments between the “Carpathian Wolf” and the German Shepherd llevados a cabo en la antigua República Socialista Checoslovaca a partir de 1955 under the supervision of the SR. Karel Hartl, a renowned Czech cynologist and breeder. El objetivo científico de estos experimentos era determinar las características de estos híbridos (apariencia física, behavior, utility, fertility…), while the military tried to create a breed with the strength of the wolf and the docility of the dog, that could be used as an attack dog.

The first births took place in 1958 at the border guard kennel in Libejovice, en el sur del país. Brita the wolf and the German Shepherd Cezar z Brezoveho Haje gave birth to 5 Puppies: Brent, Berta, Bono, Betty y Bessy.

Betty fue seleccionada para continuar la línea en el criadero Libejovice, while his sister Berta was sent to the Samorin kennel (now Malacky) with the same goal. Sus crías fueron utilizadas como perros de patrulla por los guardias fronterizos, confirmando que estos híbridos eran sanos, functional and fertile.

After this initial success, the Brita Wolf was able to mate again with a new male German Shepherd named Kurt z Vaclavky. Like this, in 1960, Defender, Bigan, Trophy, Bill and Bima were born in the Libejovice kennel. The male Bikar was chosen to be sent to the Pohranicni kennel in Slovakia to continue this second lineage.

The experiment stopped at 1965, not without some success: los híbridos pudieron reproducirse, socialize with humans and be trained for different tasks. At the end of the experiment, 16 of these dogs remained in the care of the army, While 18 were given to civil breeders.

Entonces se crearon nuevas líneas, as..:

– Astra (female german shepherd dog) and Argo (Carpathian wolf male) in 1968;
– Lejdy (female Carpathian wolf) y Boyar from Schotterhof (male german shepherd) in 1972;
– Urta with the Guardian Guard (hembra híbrida de tercera generación) and Sarik (male Carpathian wolf) in 1974;
– Xela with the Guardian Guard (híbrido femenino de tercera generación) and Sarik (Carpathian wolf male) in 1983.

The name “Czechoslovakian Wolfdogparece haberse convertido en algo común para designar a estos híbridos ya en el decenio de 1960, but it wasn't until 1982 that the efforts of Mr.. Karel Hartl were finally officially rewarded when this new breed was recognized by the Czechoslovakian Dog Breeders Committee, la organización canina de referencia del país.

It developed quite quickly and to 1991 not less than 1552 loberos checoslovacos estaban inscritos en el registro nacional de perros con pedigrí.

In 1999, the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog was recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI).

In the news, are mainly found in Central Europe, pero su popularidad está creciendo rápidamente en varios países de Europa occidental como Italia, Germany, Spain and France. In France, for example, little more than 3.000 representatives of the breed have registered with the LOF (Livre des Origines Français) between 2010 and 2016, and the trend is increasing. His growing renown leads him to the gates of 10 Most popular dog breeds in France.

In United States, the AKC (American Kennel Club) partially recognizes it from 2001: their representatives can participate in competitions organized under the aegis of the organization, but they cannot register in the breed dog registry. On the other hand, the UKC (United Kennel Club) fully recognizes it, and has been doing it since 2006. What's more, in 2011 an official breed club was established (el Czechoslovakian Vlcak Club of America). There are currently some 200 especímenes en territorio americano.

Character and skills

The Czechoslovakian Wolfdog he is very devoted to his family, including children. However, their rather dominant nature can be problematic for young people. In any case, it is important to socialize him from an early age and never leave a young child alone with a dog, regardless of race.

He is also sociable with his companions and other pets who live under the same roof., since he is used to their presence relatively early. On the other hand, ¡ay de los gatos, perros pequeños y otros roedores que le son desconocidos y que tendrían la mala idea de aventurarse en su territorio, or that they will meet during a walk: his hunting instincts were then all chances to regain the advantage.

What's more, es tan cariñoso con su séquito como desconfía de los extraños: allí también es necesaria una educación y socialización del cachorro iniciada desde una edad temprana para evitar cualquier problema posterior.

Al tener un sentido de jerarquía muy desarrollado, must face as soon as possible with his “líder de la manada”, quien debe mostrarle a su perro su lugar en la jerarquía familiar . The Czechoslovakian Wolfdog he is a dog that cannot stand loneliness, prefiriendo en gran medida vivir en compañía de su manada, that is, his family. Es muy probable que se sienta infeliz si tiene que estar solo durante largos períodos de tiempo y corre el riesgo de huir para reunirse con su familia, or feeling excluded from the “in the sense” and lose trust in his master.

What's more, the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog it is a very durable and active breed of dog, able to accompany his master even over very long distances that can exceed even those of a marathon, and whatever the weather conditions. In fact, poder ejercitarse a diario es necesario para su bienestar físico y psicológico, and allows to avoid the risk of damage caused by the dog . Es un compañero ideal para un amante de los deportes al que le gustaría, for example, jogging with your dog , go hiking with your dog or even ride a bike with your dog.. On the other hand, even more than for any other race, su cuidador debe asegurarse de estar siempre al frente y así mostrar a su perro quién es el “líder de la manada” .

On the other hand, a person who prefers to spend his free time in front of a screen or immersed in a book is exposed to some difficulties if he thinks about adopting a Czechoslovakian Wolfdog

What's more, by needing space, este último no es una raza de perro recomendada en apartamentos : es mucho mejor tener una casa con jardín. No es raro verlo jugando y durmiendo allí sea cual sea el tiempo: no es muy difícil, and is able to perfectly withstand bad weather. On the other hand, se recomienda que dicho jardín esté perfectamente vallado, para evitar el riesgo de que el perro se escape y deambule por la vía pública.

The Czechoslovakian Wolfdog very little, if he barks. But when it does, it is impossible not to notice: similar to his ancestors the wolves , its howl is loud and can be heard over long distances. Daily, when you need to express yourself, opt for other means, like moans and grunts .

Like this, this loyal and active dog will make a firm human companion happiness, sporty and available, but it is not recommended for people who have never had dogs before or who are often absent. In fact, la mayoría de adopciones fallidas se deben a que el humano no ha sabido imponerse como “líder de la manada” y / or has not been sufficiently available and active for his partner.

Last, conviene recordar que esta raza canina reciente se encuentra todavía en fase de construcción, so excessively fearful or aggressive subjects may appear.
