It was in the 60’s of the last century, when the Czechoslovakians decided to mix different dog breeds in order to get fantastic guards for their borders, and the two breeds that were used for this experiment were the Carpathian female wolf and the German shepherd.

As a result of the above mentioned mix, a new dog breed was made, unfortunately they didn’t become board guards as it was proven that this dog came up to be very timid and it also had some problems regarding the barking. As a matter of fact, these dogs bark is very rare and very weak. However, the species has gained superior performance and because of that it was added to the category of working dogs (such as for example Rottweiler, German Shepherd, Belgian Malinois, Dobermans, etc).

The status of the breed the Czechoslovakian Vlcak gained in the 80’s of the last century, and they spreaded more or less everywhere in the Europe. The highest percentage of this dog breed is in the Czech Republic, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, and Hungary and in the west in Italy.

The Czechoslovakian Vlcak is a breed that needs a lot of work and requires more patience – on one hand they are very hyperactive, and on the other hand they are very sensible. This is temperamental, very active and intelligent dog who acts quickly and without fear or courage. The Czechoslovakian Vlcak is very faithful to its owner. It is also very resistant to weather conditions and is universally usable.

His fur is straight, dense and adjacent to the body. The Czechoslovakian Vlcak’s winter and summer hair look very different. During the winter prevails a powerful undercoat with a cover that forms a thick coat over the entire body. Their color is yellow-gray to silver-gray with characteristic light mask, lighter hair on the bottom of the chest and the front of the chest.

Male Czechoslovakian Vlcak dogs can grow up to 65 centimeters and female dogs up to 60 cm. As far as their weight, the males can reach up to 26 kg and females up to 20 kg.
