The Czechoslovak Wolfhound is a large dog breed from the former Czechoslovakia. The aim of this crossing of German Shepherd Dog and Wolf was originally to breed a robust working dog. The Czechoslovak Wolfhound has been recognized by the FCI since 1999 and is classified in group 1.

Characteristics of the Czechoslovak Wolfhound

The life expectancy of the Czechoslovak Wolfhound is about 12 years. With a height at withers of at least 60 centimetres for females and at least 65 centimetres for males, the Czechoslovak Wolfhound is one of the big breeds.

The minimum weight for male dogs is 25 kilograms, while female Czechoslovak Wolfhounds are slightly lighter with at least 20 kilograms.

Of course, the appearance of the Czechoslovak Wolfhound is particularly striking. This does its name all credit and reminds very strongly of a wolf. This starts with its wedge-shaped head and continues with its grey coat, which can also show silver or yellowish impacts.

In addition, the Czechoslovak Wolfhound has a strong musculature, which makes the animals very persistent. All in all, his physique is powerful and balanced.

The dense fur of the Czechoslovak Wolfhound adapts very strongly to the respective season. In the winter, the dog forms a particularly dense undercoat during the fur-change, that makes it insensitive to cold.

It is also important to cover the dog's energy requirements. Decisive factors include age, weight and activity.

Due to their high urge to move and the at least low risk of hip dysplasia, we additionally recommend a dietary supplement with Bellfor joints and bones. In this way, the stressed musculoskeletal system can be ideally supplied with additional nutrients and protected against wear and tear.
