The popularity of the Chodsky Pes was fairly stable in Czech Republic before the 2nd World War, but in the second part of the 20th century its numbers were declining. A dedicated fancier named Jan Findejs started a revival programme in the 1984 and successfuly re-popularized the Bohemian Shepherd Dog in its homeland, as well as outside the Czech Republic. A capable herder and guardian, the Chodsky Pes makes a good watchdog, service dog and Agility contender. Trainable, people-friendly and even-tempered, it is well-suited for the life of a companion pet.
The coat is rich and soft, always black-n-tan in colour. Average height is around 20 inches.
