Loyal, strong, and courageous, the Caucasian Shepherd Dog is a fierce family protector bred to care for flocks and defend the home against wild predators in the rough Caucasus Mountain region. They are also known as Caucasian Mountain Dogs, Russian Bear Dogs, Baskhan (Karachay) Pariy, Caucasian Ovcharka Dogs, or just CO, and there are many variants and types. This massive breed is highly territorial and won’t back down from a fight, even against bears or wolves. Caucasian Shepherd Dogs are intelligent, but their stubborn, independent nature can make them difficult to train, and their natural distrust of strangers and other animals can lead to aggressive tendencies if they are not kept in check by an experienced trainer. This breed is not a good choice for novice owners, and though they are fairly low-energy dogs, the sheer size of Caucasian Shepherd Dogs makes them poorly suited for apartment living and homes with small children. Still, with proper training and socialization, Caucasian Shepherd Dogs can be strong watchdogs, family companions, and even therapy dogs. While they may not appeal to first-time dog owners, Caucasian Shepherd Dogs will reward experienced, patient, consistent trainers with gentle love and affection that will make them excellent lifelong family members.
