Sheila Atter

“Success comes through good breeding and good feeding – and CSJ That’ll Do does it for us!”

Falling in love with the breed..

Sheila has been showing since 1976 but fell in love with Cesky Terriers after seeing the first Cesky Terriers in the UK in 1989 – brought in by her friends Harold and Liz Gay.

Ridley Pamatka’s fabulous record...

In what Sheila describes as her most memorable success Ridley Pamatka qualified for the finals of the Champion Stakes in 2016 – the only Cesky Terrier to achieve this!

She is an Int/Bel/Cze/Dk/Lux Ch and the only UK bred, owned and handled Cesky Terrier to become a Czech champion!

She also took the Club Winner title in the breed’s homeland, and is the only Cesky Terrier to have been awarded the Horak Memorial prize (named after the breed’s founder) – not once, but twice!

There have also been three Ridley World Winners - Gloria, Ulicnik and Xaver… and two European Winners – Unikat and Ulita… and Tomas was Best Junior at the French Championnat in 2011 and Anika was Best Opposite Sex at the Club Show, held in conjunction with the World Show in Milan 2015.

So what’s the future?

Sheila currently owns 6 Cesky Terriers and says, “Nowadays we spend most of our time promoting the breed at country fairs run by: www.livingheritagecountryshows.com

where Team Ridley spend their time meeting lots of people and introducing them to this very rare breed. We also enjoy tracking and Anja and Xanthe are working towards their Schweisshund qualification as certified scenting dogs.”
