Caucasian Mountain Dog Puppies
Description: The Caucasian Mountain Dog is not for everyone! This specialized working breed is very headstrong and requires an owner who is also very strong in mind and body and who has the time and self-discipline to provide proper socialization and firm but inducive training. The Caucasian Mountain Dog is strong-minded, well-balanced, and even-tempered. They are peaceful with family, but protective of family toward unwelcome visitors. It is territorial and suspicious of strangers, and will protect its flock, family, and property from danger with lightning-quick speed. Often sneaking up on victims quietly, the Caucasian Owtcharka has the inherited trait of being able to recognize real threats from artificial ones. Due to an increasing popularity of Kavkaski Ovcars in Russia and lack of sheep guarding dogs, they will probably be bred for more amiable personality rather than abilities in the future. Caucasian Mountain Dogs are large with square heads and a thick feathering of their short, medium or long-length coat. Caucasian Ovcharkas change fur length from region to region, depending on how cold the climate is. They have a double coat that can be grey, white, cream, fawn or tan. Russians suggest approaching this dog with caution, as they can be quite ferocious.
