Slovakian Rough Haired Pointer Breed Summary

Active, Energetic, Intelligent, Friendly and Adaptable

Slovakian Rough Haired Pointers originate from Czechoslovakia, what is now known as the Czech Republic and Slovakia and is a fairly new breed, first developed in the 1950's. It's thought they were probably created by crossing Cesky Fousaks, German Wire Haired Pointers and Weimanaraners that had hunting, pointing and retrieval abilities. The breed has remain relatively unknown and it was only during the 90's when the country split that the breed first appeared in the UK. However, they still remain a relatively rare breed and anyone wanting to share a home with one of these guys would need to register their interest with a breeder.

These doggies are very, very active and need constant exercise in order to remain fit and healthy. Therefore, they would do best in a home where the family led an active lifestyle that one of these pooches could easily slot into. Additionally, they will need to have access to lots of outside space to stretch their legs out between walks. However, they are very good with both children and other dogs so could well find a home with a variety of families! Training needs to start as early as possible as they are a highly intelligent breed, however you must always use positive reinforcement as this breed will not respond well to harsh treatment. However, for the right family they make lovely family pets!
