My experience with the Caucasian Ovcharka as a dog trainer,breeder,owner

I've
owned, breed and trained many Caucasian Ovcharka dogs. it is one of the oldest
breeds, in the past it used to guard sheep from predators. it is a very strong
and tough dog. they are the best guard dogs for many reasons: they don't need
training, they start showing natural aggression at 7-8 months age, even without
being provoked. they have very strong defense drive, and for this reason and
their very large size, they are very dangerous to strangers. owning a Caucasian
Ovcharka is a great deal of responsibility. you must have a very tall and
strong fence, and only a very strong adult can walk the dog.



You
also have to be very alert while walking with your CO dog, because if it feels
threatened, it will attack



The
CO is not a dog for everyone, although it loves it's family and is usually very
sweet to people it knows. only a very experienced owner, who has a big property
protected by a very strong fence can deal with a CO dog. the CO is a working
dog and he is on a mission 24/7. he will protect his pack and property and he
is not afraid of anything. the question is, do you need such level of
protection...? if the answer is no, you might want to re-consider taking such a
huge and aggressive dog.
