Group: Flock Guard
Also Known As:

About Caucasian Mountain Dog
Country of Origin, History of the breed
This is a popular breed that
originated in Russia. This flock guardian
dog had been developed from pre-historic molasses
in Caucasus. The name of the dog “Caucasian
Ovtcharka” means sheepdog of the Caucasian
region. The local herders had developed this
breed and used it to protect their sheep from
predators and thieves.
The dog’s striking
physical characteristics and hard working
abilities had always secured for it a lot
of attention. However, the lack of organized
kennel clubs and written standards had been
responsible for variations being caused among
the Caucasian Mountain Dogs of various nations.
The need for the dog to be used
as a sheep guardian is fast dying out. However,
extensive breeding programs for the dog are being
undertaken throughout Hungary, Poland and the Czech
and Slovak Republics and the popularity of the dog

Description of the Breed
The dog is a healthy, strongly
boned and muscular creature. It has got a large
torso with angled hind legs and sturdy hocks. The
dog has a massive head. It has moderate deep-set
dark almond shaped eyes. The ears are densely covered
with hair. The ears are traditionally docked.
The coat of the Caucasian Mountain
Dog is moderate in length. It is thick, dense and
weather resistant and having profuse feathering.
Typically the coat is a light shade of gray with
white markings. However, coat colors vary between
gray, fawn, pied, brindle, tan and white. It is
very effective in keeping out the cold. The dog
has large and heavy paws and it has hair between
the toes too that offers insulation and protection.
The tail of the dog is thick. It is covered with
a long feathering of heavy hair. It hangs down alongside
the hock when the dog is resting. When the dog moves
the tail curls upwards and over its side.
Male: 25 inches and 33 inches
Female: 24 inches and 29 inches.
Male: 99 pounds and 195 pounds
Female: 85 pounds and 154 pounds.
Temperament of the Dog
The Causasian Mountain Dogs are
brave, alert, strong and hardy. However, they need
experienced owners to handle them. The dogs tend
to respect and obey only those members of the family
who seem dominant. These are thinking dogs that
rely mainly on their own instincts and never become
completely submissive and follow orders blindly.
Proper care, socialization and training of the dogs
are a must for otherwise they may turn out to be
ferocious and unmanageable.
The dogs distrust people unknown
to them. They have a powerful urge to defend persons
and things belonging to the family to which they
belong including children and pets. Though the dogs
like children yet children cannot be entrusted to
their care. They tend to offer extensive protection
to the children if they feel there is a need to
do so and as a result may end up doing more harm
than good. The Caucasian Mountain Dog can be rather
dominating towards dogs it does not know.
The dog needs to be exercised considerably
both physically and mentally. A long walk undertaken
on a daily basis or 30 minutes of running or engagement
in some other vigorous activity provides the dog
with the physical exercising that it needs. Mental
exercises can be provided via special dog training
The large size and high levels
of energy/temperament of the dog makes it unsuitable
for keeping the Caucasian Mountain Dog in apartments.
The dogs need space and can only make do with a
large yard. Outdoor living is not a problem for
the dog because it has got a thick coat that can
protect it from cold. However, a proper place of
shelter needs to be arranged for the dog.
Two varieties of coats of the Caucasian
Mountain Dog can be found- Shorthaired and Longhaired.
Though both varieties of coats
require regular brushings the longhaired variety
needs more frequent brushings. While brushing and
combing special attention needs to be given to the
areas that are more prone to getting tangled. In
case of these dogs shedding occurs throughout the
year and heavy shedding takes place twice annually.
Regular brushing of the coat will go a long way
to keep the mess of shedding at a minimum.
The breed has not been known to
be particularly prone to any major illnesses. However,
being a large dog breed the Caucasian Mountain Dogs
are susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia.
