On the basis of records you can certainly say that there is this
breed of dog for about 600 years. This incredibly strong and
powerful animals originate from the Caucasus in the Soviet Union.
There are very strong working dog. Bred and were used by shepherds
and they are exclusively used in the most vigorous and resistant
animals for breeding. This selection should be, since these dogs
to defend the flock, not only against human and animal predators
had, but also had to endure the harsh climate.
"There are still the South Russian Shepherd Dog, Central Asian
Shepherd dog and the Caucasian steppes Shepherd." One can roughly
be divided into even the Caucasian mountains and Steppenkaukase.
The Bergkaukase is usually more compact / powerful (Burrak) and
the Steppenkaukase legged and narrow (Aunja). As these two were
mixed strongly for decades, a distinction is difficult and is not
There is the South Russian, the Central Asian and the Caucasian
Ovtcharka. Ovcharka Shepherd translated means, however, he has
nothing in common with the German shepherd. The Owtscharkas dogs
are shepherds and are often confused with herding dogs. These
drive the cattle together, however, and the shepherd dogs guarding
He is and will be really scary and is a companion dog is anything
but suitable. It is difficult to educate and, if any, with love
and strength and consistency. Mostly, however, he ignored the
wishes of his owner completely.
But he loves his dominions over all and protects them best efforts.
Only with the obedience he has his difficulties.
Most breeders say though that can be a Caucasian teach anything,
but this is wrong! If the farmer can not swim, the swimwear is to
Most clubs educate their shepherd dogs with hardness and Drill. We
arrive at a flock guard dog no further! Regardless of that the
other dogs there to feel the place is not good. If you do it right
(humanely), then one can obtain from a Ovtcharka as good education,
as well as other breeds. However, they remain suspicious of
strangers and protect its own kingdom. If he "wishes of its
holder" is ignored, then one has a hierarchy problem and that is
very dangerous! Therefore, we strongly advise to go to a dog, if
you will have a Caucasian, then you learn how the Caucasian is a
child of a family member.
Since this dog is an absolute nature boy should be called "wimps"
and "wimps buy" not such an animal. To put it on one point: a
Caucasian expose you to anywhere, it will come in their language.
He can do some off, it is hard to take in and not at all
sophisticated. His coat is as thick as his skin and so he is well
protected from the bite wounds. Other foreign animals and humans
to it is malicious and suspicious. And he should, which in Germany
(except perhaps the Lausitz) is difficult to even have to fight a
wolf, he will emerge victorious. Otherwise, there would be no herd
in the Caucasus more.
Walking (ie going for a walk is) no strength this dog, although he
always does as if it would please him. It takes more than strong
nerves to get married with him on the street. Strangers he is, as
I said, suspicious. Therefore it no one these animals simply allow
time to pet so much less without the supervision of the handler.
If it is a male, it is possible that he other male counterparts do
not like and that also clearly expresses. No ifs and buts.
Unneutered male dogs are often competing with each other. However,
if they are accustomed to small, groups of dogs of different sexes,
then it works quite well. Most males have the problems that are
not disordered clean!
If one assumes this is a must protect the dog, then it is the
wrong attitude. If I want to be the boss of such a dog, then I say,
protect them and where to go. If the boss is not there, then the
dog may defend his kingdom, but when I go out, then give the dog
must return alone! If there really are times stress that master or
mistress should be attacked, then he helps out of instinct!
However, he also has many strengths. If one a Caucasian in the
front yard of his house, you can be 100 percent sure that nobody
enters the strange house or the land. You can leave the doors are
open and perhaps children should be there to protect him, then he
is for the children, although he is so gruff, the favorite
playmate and companion, he never would bend cherished a hair, but
potential attackers or Burglars should not be trusted again plot.
These dogs were never in the past treated tenderly and are used
daily to take hardships, perhaps for too long distances to lay
back. Therefore, the city is not a suitable place to keep such an
animal would. Condition is the house and grounds. There he will
wander around and watch it, that's just so fenced his way only, as
high and stable, the property should be, otherwise the Caucasian
expands his territory from simple and easily collected the
neighbor's garden, etc.

eaters and bad. Greedy dogs which are: Retriever, Beagle, and
Newfoundland. Thus, the Caucasus is not. He also treats a haunted
